    Not as good as the Apple pencil

    It's a decent stylus, bit still lags way behind Apple in "smoothness", as in it doesn't feel very natural like writing with a pencil

    Great Pen! Lags a little.

    Great pen for windows ink, if your computer doesn't already come with one. The only complaint I have it that it lags slightly and you have to have it really close to the screen in order for it to register so it's a little hard when trying to add details in a photoshop painting. It's only a small complaint, more of a learning curve as I'm used to working on a Wacom tablet with Wacom pens.

    I have used other styluses. I find this one just a little laggy when I use it on my updated laptop. I have two years with my other stylist and I think it outperforms this one. Will be probably taking this back.

    Great stylus - questionable battery life

    I use this for note taking on an HP Envy X360 in MPP mode. Sometimes there's a little lag in input initialization every time you lift the pen, but I usually write in cursive, so it'sn't too much of a problem. When writing in print, the lag is just slight enough that letters end up looking a little disjointed. Lines are clean, no random jagged points or false input. I wouldn't recommend it for artists, the slight lag would probably be quite infuriating, and the lack of Tilt would probably make a higher end pen worth the extra cost. Using the side button for erase was a little odd at first, my last device had a Wacom Feel pen with an eraser top; I got used to the side button pretty quick, but sometimes finding it'sn't as seamless as flipping the pen over. I've had mine for 19 days now, and the battery is dead. Maybe it was an issue with the battery that came with it, but at this rate I'll be spending almost as much in a year on batteries as I bought the stylus for in the first place. I did find, after replacing the battery, that if you twist the cap most of the way it will disconnect the battery but still retain the cap. Hoping this will make the this battery last much longer. If not I guess I'll look into purchasing AAAA in bulk online.

    The pen is great and very easy to use! It definitely makes a difference when I need precision and is exactly what I needed for this laptop. My only complaint is there is some lag time where the pen doesn't quite keep up with me when writing, but overall a good product.

    I've only been using this pen for about a week. In comparison to the Apple Pencil I must say that it is a little laggy. I'll give it more time and update my review later.

    This was my first pen ever for my tablet. I used this on an HP Spectre X2 and I thought it was ok, but there was a slight lag that I just couldn't get used to. For the price, it's ok, but I don't think it's worth $80.

    I bought this as a replacement for the pen that came with my Surface Pro 3. I ended up returning it. It felt a little laggy to me.

    It just lags from time to time. I think this is the first of its kind, but if you're looking for a generic one, this will be no problem. Go after the HP pen if you can.

    It works however performance is far from apple pen on the iPads. You can do signatures etc but its not as accurate and lags. Returned this product for a refund. I also got rid of the surface laptop and stayed with the iPad.

    Awesome Stylus

    I really like this stylus as it feels like I'm writing with a pen and it doesn't have any noticeable lag. You can create shortcuts on it and it works really well for taking notes. I purchased this to use on my laptop to take notes during class and I love it. I would give this 5 stars but due it requires batteries and I would have preferred it be rechargeable especially for the price.

    The pen doesn't always seem to connect. And there are times when the drawing is a little laggy. It's great for homework use, and it was a good experiment for me as I'm trying to decide between a HP or a iPad Pro for my design work. This would be a hard pass for detailed work.

    Bought this on impulse to use with my windows ink compatible 2 in 1. Don't use it much. Looks like there's more lag than the new iPad Pro (judging by the commercials - I've not actually used one). Looking forward to using it more to annotate saved web pages and draw programs (I like Corel Draw). Without a real "need" probably should have passed by the display and saved the money.
