    Worked perfect on the Hp Spectre X360 15

    I used this on my Hp Spectre 15 inch laptop. It worked perfect and didn't have any delay when using it. Just get it near the screen and it works. You can use it to draw, edit photos, and just click around in a web browser. Anything you would use a mouse for can be done with this pen and then some. The weight is quite nice and makes the pen comfortable to use for extended amounts of time. I would recommend this if you are looking for a touch input pen. Just make sure your computer is capable of using the technology this pen offers.

    Doesn't work with 2016 HP Spectre x360 15.6" 4K

    Although 2016 HP Spectre x360 15.6" 4K is not in the compatible devices in Wacom Ink website, I would like to at least give a try. I've used Wacom products in the past, and they are pretty well-made. Pen feels solid and well balanced. Bluetooth paring works, and clicking button launches the corresponding applications. Unfortunately, I cannot write anything on screen. Switching protocol by holding both side buttons doesn’t help either. Laptop needs to support either Wacom AES protocol or Microsoft Pen Protocol (MPP). You can check the compatible device list at http://www.wacom.com/en-hk/comp.

    Excellent for art and design

    I am a graphic designer and I have been into art my whole life. This is as close as I've come to the feel of drawing on paper. It registers where you want it to and the palm rejection is flawless. I can put my hand on the screen and draw on it like its paper. It feels nice too. I wanted a set up like this for years. I highly recommend it with a windows ink tablet or laptop. Make sure it works with your specific laptop and enjoy.

    Very Good Pen

    The folks at Wacom know what they are doing. I purchased this pen to use with my HP Spactre 360 2 in 1 and it is worth every penny. The textured exterior and triangular shape give this pen a nice feel in my hand. I don't know what it is, but this feels like a real pen when I use it and not just a stylus. Writing on my laptop is not the same as pen on paper but it is pretty close. The pen comes with three nib types (actually 4 if you include the one in the pen) so they have you covered. If you are looking for a pen to use with a MS Ink enabled screen this should be your choice.

    I was so excited to have a smart pen with my new LENOVO Laptop with Windows 10. The Best Buy Team Member helped me pick the laptop that best fit my needs and would work with my new PEN. I took it back to Best Buy to see if they could get it to write on the screen (IT PAIRED) to the computer. They could not get it told me to call WASCOM for Tech Support :( After two hours pen still would not work and I returned it to best buy wishing I would have got the surface instead of the LENOVO

    My beautiful and dynamic wife purchased this product when she bought her Yoga and while the laptop was mainly for work, this stylus was for her to reconnect to her artistic side. I was about to purchase an iPad Pro and I pencil in order to continue with my exploration of the memedium of meme creation. Memes are life, life is a reflection of memeworld. I am enjoying replacing the heads of family with animal and food parts. My son also appears to be making great strides in speech therapy since it has come into our life. Coincidence? I’m not sure

    Big upgrade over Lenovo Pen

    Got a new lenovo yoga laptop so naturally I chose to use the Lenovo branded active pen 2. Got this pen after having issues with 4 different active pens and I have not looked back since. The included pen tips allow you to adjust how the pen writes. I personally went with the hardest tip and my notes come out crisp and exactly how my handwriting on paper looks like. The buttons are positioned comfortably, easy to find, and yet isnt prone to accidental pressing. I highly recommend this pen.

    Wacom - Bamboo Ink Smart Stylus good product

    This pen for Windows ink was purchased to use with an HP Spectre X360. I reviewed this pen and others before purchasing. This is really the only pen in the race. The price was a little steep in my opinion. However when pricing other sites the Best buy had the lower price. I held off a little while and BBY had a $20 off sale so I got it. I have been very happy with it. Note:you have to twist the pen in the near center where the clip is located to insert the battery. DO NOT pull on the top you will break it. Add plus is a set of pen heads to suite you needs.

    NOT COMPATIBLE

    I bought this when I bought my new lap top and Unfortunately, after much frustration and confusion learned that it was not compatible with the lap top I bought --- fail on the part of the sales specialist I guess.... any way -- I had to return it due to incompatibility. Buyer beware -- make sure it works before you are past the return date. Can't recommend because I have no way of knowing if this is a good product or not

    I recently purchased this Wacom Smart stylus for my new laptop. It is of great quality, with a small exception. The stylus comes with two dots that should align to indicate that the slot where you insert the battery is fully locked. Mine however came with the dots unaligned. Not a really big deal but with a stylus from a well recognized company like Wacom, and with the given price, I expected more. Overall, a great smart stylus. Plus, I think it works with all laptop brands that support Windows Ink.

    Purchased this for use with my Lenovo Yoga running Windows 10. Had no problems with getting the device to pare with the computer and works great. Perfect for Windows Ink applications and use this daily. I'm rating at a 4 star because the first one I purchased was damaged out of the box and had to make another trip to the store to return. The second one I installed the battery provided and verified the blue LED would light up before leaving the store.

    Excellent Substitute

    So I bought this stylus as a replacement to my lost Surface stylus for a fraction of the cost. I got it home, couldn't find the instructions easily and just started messing with it, ended up popping off the top. Turns out I shouldn't have done that, the battery hold place is lower down. I have currently used tape to hold the top in place and fortunately it works great. My advice is open the package all the way and read the directions and DO NOT pop the very top off, but if you do - line it up and tape it in place.

    I don't even know why I bought this but I had to have it to go with the new 2-in-1 laptop. And I am so glad I did! I have barely begun to touch the surface of what it can to but I am looking forward to trying out the different apps. I use it mainly with OneNote right now, which is awesome. And I really like the sticky note feature. The sales person said that I can edit photos with it, which is something I am excited about. All in all, a nifty little gadget and, if you buy a 2-in-1, you really should get one too!

    I love this pen. I've been using it to write notes on my touch screen in class for 3 semesters now and it works great. My only issue is there is no discernible way to turn it off. I burned out the battery rather quickly when I first bought it because it is just constantly on. I have since started partially twisting off the top of the pen so the battery compartment is looser (ie., the battery can't touch both nodes and is therefore not in use). The battery lasts A LOT longer that way.

    I needed a stylus for a laptop I just bought. This was the only compatible product available in the store. It took several tries to install and configure the pen to be recognized by the laptop. I followed the directions and couldn't get it to work. If finally worked through trial and error. It is not as smooth as the stylus that goes with the Microsoft Surface (which is not compatible with the Lenovo 2-in-1 I bought) but manageable. I changed the tip to one of the other ones that came with the stylus and it worked better.

    No magnet. I ended up getting a stick on band that holds any pen and mounted it along the top edge of my screen on the right (opposite of the power and volume buttons). I like this placement and I won't lose this like I lost the 2 Microsoft ones. But now that I have the band I'd rather have a Microsoft pen. This one works ok but not as good as the real deal. It also doesn't erase when you turn it around and use the "eraser" end of the pen. They don't claim to do this and I had just assumed it would work.

    I recently purchased a new Bamboo Ink Pen from my local Best Buy. I got it home to realize the top had broken off in the box already. The store said the box had never been opened so I was saddened to see I spent 60 dollars on broken merchandise. I still continued to use it by holding the broken piece down, and I am very happy with everything it allows me to do. I love this product and have even told my friends how great it is in combination with my new laptop. Just disheartened by the fact it was broken.

    I bought this for use with my 2017 model of the HP Spectre x360 13 inch and although the included pen worked fine it wasn't quite up to par on what I needed. The palm rejection didn't work very well and I went as far as getting an artist drawing glove without it getting any better. Heard good stories about this stylus and was happy to learn they were true. Adding this pen to mix, basically gave me an efficient drawing tablet for half the price. The only downside is no tilt support, but that's something I can live without.

    I own an HP ENVY x360 15t-W200... or something like that. I checked Wacom's website before I bought it, and it said the HP ENVY x360 15-bd or something like that was compatible. Unfortunately I stopped after I got to the x360 part of the model number and ordered one. Long story short, it's not compatible with my computer. I had to return it and buy an HP Pen. Make sure to check your model number exactly for compatibility before purchasing. That said, it looks like an amazing pen. Wish it worked on my computer.

    The stylus worked well with my HP Pavillion for the first two days I had it, but then it upaired from the device. I've read everything I can online about how to solve the problem, but nothing works. It's a very expensive paperweight now. What's ridiculous is that rubber-tipped syli with no electronics of any kind work fine with the computer. I can draw with them. The computer recognizes them. The Bamboo? Nothing. What a waste of money.
