Oregon Scientific SmartGlobe Discovery - Interactive Globe w/ Smart Pen SG268

Add Comment
there's mountains outside my window. not flat at all.

My kid has a previous model. Oregon Scientific's Windows software (needed to upload different languages/files/etc) is an abomination; completely unusable in all respects. Don't plan on changing/updating things.

The pen on the first one died, so we returned it (thank you Costco). They said that their return rate was approaching 50%, and that store actually pulled it from the shelves. Several months later, a slightly newer model was back on the shelves, so we bought it again. At least the hardware works this time; the software was still unusable. Not worth the $75 we paid for it, but maybe $35 for a newer model with a wired pen may be worth it.

But gawd, that software...makes Leapfrog's software seem like it was made by Apple in comparison.

$30.44 at Amazon. (Says "packaging damaged", but "like new".) O.S. has lots of these to sell!
