    I bought this along with my new lenovo 15'' yoga 710, hoping to sketch with those drawing or notetaking apps on windows 10 (though touch screen was never a priority. I made the purchase simply because of a powerful machine at an amazingly low price during the christmas sale.) apparently I have no prior experience buying a laptop supporting touch screen interactions (tablet and smart phone are totally different from a proper working machine). this stylus is no preciser or more efficient than my fingers. what it provides is simply a false sense of protection of the screen from your finger nails (but come on, there is no way you can scratch your lovely screen covered with glass with your fingers, while fingerprints are easy to clear along with dusts if any). after the several attempts, i totally give up the idea of note taking with this and any other stylus on my laptop including those precision tips. the reason is simple: any attempt to seriously write on a passive touch screen with a fancy stylus can never compare with an active one equipped with pressure sensors, precision controls, and palm rejections. if you really really want the handwriting experience on your laptop, then spend some money on a model supporting the active one such as surface pro or surface book (which in my opinion is now the leading one in the market). yes, they are pricier, but they deliver the results. if you are just allergic to the idea of using your fingers on the touch screen, well, then any stylus will do...

    Can't Beat It At This Price!

    Okay, considering that most other, comparable, capacitive styluses are 2 to 3 times the retail price of this Insignia stylus, I would have to say that it is well worth the price as a spare, "back-up" stylus. I DO wish it were about a millimeter (or maybe even a little more) slimmer in its tube diameter, but I really do appreciate its longer length. I just can't stand using those "stubby", little, smart phone styluses: I LIKE HAVING A STYLUS IN MY HAND THAT FEELS LIKE A QUALITY WRITING IMPLEMENT! These Insignia styluses definitely feel pretty strong, but the tip width is still just a bit too wide for use on an 8 inch tablet. Again, I am definitely happy to have this stylus around as a "spare", and I will probably get at least one more to keep in my car or my office desk drawer. They ARE a GOOD, cheap solution, so buy at least 2 of them!

    This is the best cheap stylus for iPad.

    I need a stylus for iPad use (particularly gameplay), and I have tried lots of different ones, which claim to be for all devices, but work poorly on an iPad. When using a stylus for gameplay, I never want the stylus to stick or not register a motion correctly. The ones made by Polaroid are fairly good, but they wear out quickly. Of all the $10-and-under styluses that I have tried, the Insignia ones are best for my iPad, and this slim version feels the smoothest and most physically comfortable to me. If they were cheaper I would stop trying other styluses, but I keep hoping to find something that works this good for $5 for less.

    I've used it on a Galaxy S5, and now on a Galaxy S7. No other stylus I've used has been more reliable or accurate...And I have tried the more expensive ones. It's not the best for handwritten messages but it can be done. It's a passive stylus but it's more responsive than some active stylus models I have tried. To date, Best Buy has been the only local retailer to carry this great tool. It won't be a purchase you regret later!

    ok people play close attention. I am moving constantly i fly often and i am on location often. I have to do many things while in motion and using a stylus keeps my work clean and accurate. i have used them all and i must say that this one is the absolute best oin its price range and beyond. I tend to lose them at this price point it does not become an oppressive burden to replace it and it works as brilliantly as one that casts three times as much i highly recomend insignia end of story

    I chose this stylus based on reviews and the price (about $5). I have a very nice pen/stylus combo (a gift from a friend) that I find much stiffer and less sensitive. I like the Insignia stylus better. I gave it 4 stars because, after using it for a while, the tip seems to be softening and becoming less responsive. Maybe this is normal "breaking in," or maybe it's wear and tear. I don't know. Just be aware that the tip changes (I use it a lot and I've had it a couple of months). Despite the changes, I still prefer it to the fancier pen/stylus combo (sorry, I don't know the brand).

    I needed a new stylus to replace my old one that had become too soft to use accurately. I have an older ipad so getting one of the super fancy pens is unnecessary. This stylus works well for the price,but I have had some issues with it not being picked up by the ipad. When that happens I just push a little harder and it works fine. I wish it was a little bit thicker for my large fingers. Overall,if you're looking for a cheap stylus to get the job done in a tablet that doesn't use a pressure sensitive pen, this is a great option!

    I've bought many of these & other Insigna stylus's from Best Buy during the last couple of years. I'm an older adult that always uses a stylus on my iPad Pro, and I'm probably on it 4-6 hrs a day playing games and surfing the web. I'm very careful with the stylus's, but I really haven't found any of them in any price range that last very long. The good thing about this brand is that they are guaranteed for one year, and if you save your receipt and the package Best Buy will replace them.

    i tried out 2 different brand that turned out unsatisfactorily . the rubbery bump cracked partially after some time and the other one from dollar tree got too soft and inconvienient as i had to press hard to type so thats the problem. this one ,initial testing shown its sensitive enough to type fast enough without having to press so hard so that a plus. and feeling the bump , my sense tells me it last for a good while perhaps. impressed enough to consider getting a second one as backup...

    I struggled beyond belief trying to get my fingers to tap the correct keys on my Smart phone. Spent many wasted hours typing and trying to correct the erroneous letters I had tapped with my large fingers. So grateful for this stylus. Solved the problem!!! Bought more - one as a gift and one for my car plus one to carry with me, in addition to the original one for my desk.

    Great Stylus, just too skinny for me

    I just needed a simple stylus so I wouldn't mark up my iPad. I liked this stylus a lot due to its simple design but for me, it was just a bit too skinny and it wouldn't fit in the stylus slot on my iPad case. I ordered a different stylus for my iPad but I am thinking this would be perfect for use on a phone or something so I may use it for that.

    I love my stylus! I seem to lose everything but this little guy stays with me and my AWESOME Lenovo Chromebook! It is smooth and strong, capable of those strong angry email taps or long seamless artsy swirls! Definitely happy with my purchase, although the high price was a bit offsetting at first! (TOTALLY worth it )

    Originally, I wanted to have this pen for fine drawing and note taking on my iPad. But the sensitivity even worse than my finger. Most iPad cases in the market don't offer slot for keeping the stylus. I always forget where I put the stylus. This style doesn't apply to my application and my need. I will not consider to buy any other stylus for my iPad. I am waiting for my current iPad goes bad and will buy the iPad Pro with the Apple Pen instead.

    I just got an iPad mini and was having trouble making my fingers activate the screen at times, and/or I would hit two spaces instead of one, etc. etc. The stylus hits right on the spot and works like a charm! I was so pleased that I came back and bought myself a back-up, in case I lost the first one, especially traveling, and then I bought a couple for my sister. Oh, and it magnetically clings to the edge of my iPad, so that helps against loss, too.

    Good stylus

    This is a good stylus....not great. The best part is the tip is a bit harder than some out there, so it lasts much longer before it becomes too soft. It is also longer than many which, for me, makes it easier to hold on to. The only negative is the clip that hold it in your pocket or in your case, is very tight to the body, which makes it somewhat difficult to clip in place. A minor inconvenience, however.

    I feel like stylus are a necessary evil to help keep smudges off of your devices, as well as hitting the smaller buttons. I always feel like they are too expensive for all they do. I also hate how you have only one or two colour choices. But the design is good. The rubber tip is sturdy. I do like how this stylus is about the length of a pencil.

    Useful and comfortable writing tool for tablets. Shaped slim and perfect just like a regular pen or pencil. Very durable and a lot cheaper than the Apple writing tool. I bought two to have, just incase I misplace one. .Plus, their are color choices which makes the pen attractive. I use the pen everyday with a iPad work app and it makes it easier to complete my work responsibility.

    I have been using this product for years. Makes it so much easier for me to navigate on my iPad. Lot less errors than trying to use my fingers. Have been using and buying since I own my iPad. Cannot use iPad without it. I have bought it in multiples cause after long use the rubber tip cracks or my dog get hold to it. Always have an extra on hand

    My new phone is so sensitive my FAT fingers won't get the exact letter I want...after fixing mistakes for a few weeks I knew I had to do something. I tried using a pen with soft end but it squished flat and wouldn't work after a day or so. This has been a good purchase! I'm not frustrated any more.

    I purchased this stylus to use with my tablet as I teach. It is great for simple annotations, clicking on larger buttons, & dragging larger items. I would recommend this for someone that is doing basic work on a tablet or touch screen computer. However, I'm finding that I really need a fine point stylus to make more clear annotations for my students & to click and drag the smaller items on the screen.
