    Was going to get the stylus from cdr king.... But the tip is not actually fully stuffed - I mean the sales lady pressed the tip and it got squashed - to those who bought it, is it easy to write with? Still undecided on what stylus to get...

    You can test the stylus before getting it. It depends upon what you will use it for. But for everyday use, at P300 it's a steal.

    Yeah, these styli are kinda delicate. Madaling masira. I've been extra careful with my Targus, so even if it's been months, medyo ok pa siya, You can try to have it replaced, but I doubt PMC would agree.

    After about 5 months of use my Rocketfish stylus pen is tarnished and the 2 parts of the pen came loose. Collapsed as I was writing.
    Ordered this (AYL) from Amazon and I'm pretty impressed..at least this comes with a 1 year warranty and an extra refill. Feels better in my hand than the Rocketfish, rollerball, and I can cap rubber end on top of the pen.

    Really happy today! I delivered my defective(within warranty) Ozaki stylus to the service center of ozaki just last wed (i had school and all so it took a long time for me to have it serviced) and they texted me to pick up the replacement today! so happy with the great customer service.

    and yes Adel, you were right, pmc-megamall did not agree( the staff was even arrogant). but the ozaki service center in libis was great!

    Does anyone have experience with the iPad stylus from Wacom? They are more expensive (30USD) than say AYL etc but Wacom does have replacement 'nibs' for it...

    does anyone know a stylus that is pointed that can be used with the ipad?

    i currently have one that's a rounded edge, and i feel that the writing experience on the ipad should be better or closer to the experience of writing on paper.

    ^ A stylus for the iPad needs to be a bit big and rounded so as to get the iPad detect the capacitive device. A pointed device (thin and small like a pencil point for example) won't be detected or it will be a hit or miss thing.

    At least that is how I understand it.

    I don't know if this one's already available at local malls, but nevertheless, I bought myself a Zero Stylus pen and have been using it for about a month already. It is designed like a pen and is intended for some heavy duty drawing/sketching on the iPad. And yeah, it also works great with games, too. Hope this helps. ;)
