I was beginning to think the same, and then I bought the Entourage Edge. The inking on it is superb - truly comparable to a Tablet PC, and absolutely no distortions on the edges, beautifully calibrated to boot. When inking on a PDF, there is a slight lag, but this is clearly an issue with processor speed since the lag isn't there with the note-taking app. After having used the Edge, I am led to believe the issues with Wacom on eInk, are not inherent in hardware, but rather because of poorly designed software.

I am disappointed to read 1000S has had the edge problem for a long time - it really shouldn't exist; it is the same size as Edge's eInk. I really do hope IRex engineers can resolve this and other inking issues in the final release of their software, because I really like my IRex 800 as a portable little device with lots of potential.
