      I bought this device for class and it is amazing!!! It is super responsive and supports full Microsoft programs and not just apps, has the full windows 10, and incredible battery life. Always had the device on the highest brightness and performance settings and lasted me most of the day. Was charging almost towards the end of the day. Great for media and content creation as well. The keyboard is awesome. Excellent key travel, well laid and responsive trackpad and every key has independent lighting. The pen is very responsive, fluid and is available in a variety of colors, also magnetic so can attach to the device without fear of losing it and has applications on almost every app and program. All in all excellent device, also very quiet and fabless Which makes it easier to use and does not overheat even with CPU and RAM intensive work. Would definitely recommend. Price is a bit on the high side but with Best Buy installments won’t be an issue.

      Go for Bamboo ink if you want note taking

      I used it for 10 days and exchanged it for a bamboo ink. This pen has its issues. READ THIS - Link has more details : https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/surface/forum/surfpronew-surfdrivers/surface-pro-intermittent-pen-inaccuracy-when-hand/28ef8566-0003-4c68-a964-6c2562423eb0 If you want to use this for note taking then I would suggest to go for bamboo ink which is 30$ cheaper. I really liked the surface pen but it has its issues. For me it manifested in the form of a noticeable offset in accuracy around the corners of the screen while writing. Almost every other line, I had to erase the last 1 or 2 words near the edges of the screen on the OneNote app. Drove me NUTS! For note taking, I believe Ipad Pro + Apple pencil are the best hands down. However, if you want to stick to the windows ecosystem (like me) and you want to mainly take notes, then WAIT for Microsoft to FIX THE BUG with the tilt sensor in the new surface pens. Until then, you will be happy with the Bamboo ink.

      Good Pen with Significant Software Hurdles

      This is the first Surface Pen I've bought, and I chose it specifically because I wanted an easy way to mark up documents and textbooks while using my new Surface Pro 2017. Unfortunately, the tablet no longer is sold with the pen - a huge knock on MSFT to start - but the benefits of spending the extra $99 on one are substantial. It's very responsive, extremely easy to use and makes for a helpful stand-in for a trackpad/mouse (an issue iPad Pro owners are all too familiar with). Unfortunately, there are some issues with my unit. The button at the top only intermittently works - immediately after pairing, it works perfectly, but then a week after I'll try to use it to pull up OneNote or take a screenshot and it does literally nothing. I'm not sure why this is - the battery is brand new. It's not a deal breaker for me as I rarely use the shortcut, but it is an important feature of the pen that I think should have been ironed out before it went on sale. Either way, I'm happy with my purchase and it really completes the Surface Pro set for me.

      I didn't buy this pen when I bought my surface pro because the pen was so expensive and I didn't think I'd use it. After having my surface pro for about a month, I started to see how the pen could be handy. I mainly use it for playing games because some things are just easier with a pen than a mouse! My main concern, besides price, was how to keep from losing it. But, it is magnetic and sticks right to the side of your surface pro. I used a rewards certificate to bring the price down a bit, but I still think it was worth it. It does use a AAAA (yes, 4 As) battery. They are not as prevalent as AA or AAA, but Best Buy, Lowe's and Walgreen's carries them. I'm still on the battery that came with the pen so the battery life is good.

      Form factor sells it

      I've been using an Apple Pencil for close to two years nearly daily for notes -- while I prefer that experience for writing, it simply doesn't work with the MS ecosystem. For the MS ecosystem, I tried both the MS Surface Pen and Wacom's Bamboo offering. Simply, I found the Surface Pen to be passable in meetings although it's really the form factor that sells it. The weight and size I prefer to the Apple pencil but the magnet built in for connecting to the Surface is the greatest convenience. As a business traveler, it stays clipped on in my bag so I don't have to fumble for it on flights. That said, bringing the clip back (or at least making one purchasable) would be ideal too.

      Very smooth!

      The pen is smooth and the digital ink glides across the screen without any noticeable delay and an impressive level of sensitivity! The surface settings also allow you to adjust the pen’s shortcut buttons and sensitivity settings. I can’t say whether it makes a difference on previous surface models, but using this on the Surface Book 2 is excellent for graphic design, writing and anything else one might use a stylus for. I used my friend’s pen that she got with the surface 4 pro and although both pens look similar, this new model is a big improvement! I probably wouldn’t get it if I had a Surface Book 1 or anything before that because Microsoft reported that not all surface models support the updated sensitivity with this pen.

      easy to use, best pen available for surface pro

      This pen really should be included with the surface pro, but not mandatory for good user experience. I don't use it every day, but when I want it, I'm glad it's there. I wish the magnetic hold was stronger to the side of my surface pro, but I'm grateful that it is as good as it is. I debated about getting the previous model pen or the bamboo pen (I borrowed a friends bamboo pen for a few days) but I'm glad I splurged on this one. It was very difficult to find in stock though. I thought I would want a clip for it, but being clip free and using the magnet on the left side of the surface pro screen is the slimmest and most convenient option for me. It does come off if I bump it sometimes and I worried I might bump it off and not notice ... then will lose a $100 pen

      Not a big fan of the stylus, however the surface pen has out-preformed any that I have used before. I watch other class-mates that have to plug their pens into their tablets to sync them, I never have that issue. I do not know how long the batteries will last, but for now it has given me no issues. I have purchased a set of different tips to try with this, but they are currently "on a slow boat from China" literally. Very interested to try out the different tips, but even before that, I would highly recommend this product. P.S.- Love the magnetic feature that holds the pen to the side of my surface book 2. works very well.
