This notebook is worth buying.
The notebook is lined on one side and dotted on the other. The spaces in between the rows of dots are smaller than the lined page. The pages are smooth and easy to write on. AND IT IS ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY. Despite the list below, I still think it is a great buy. Once you start getting used to writing on it, I really think this will be the last notebook you will ever need.
Here are some things you need to get used to.
1. The pen it came with is a .07 frixion pen. If you have a small handwriting like I do, the app will not be able to clearly capture what you wrote on the page. My fix, buy a .05 frixion pen or make your handwriting bigger.
2. You have to wait for a few seconds for the ink to dry so that it doesn't smear. My fix, a .05 frixion pen dries quicker than the .07.
3. If you have sweaty palms, writing on that portion where your hands are can be problem (remember when you clean your page you need to wait for it to dry?). My fix, I rest my hand on a different paper when writing.
4. Wash the cleaning cloth it came with or else you would have black streaks on your pages when cleaning. No fix. Just wash it. You don't need to do it often anyway. Got mine on October 15. I just washed it November 1. And I scan approximately 5 full pages every week since I got my rocketbook.
