    Can't get replacement tips

    The tip "nib" falls out extremely easily, and you are not able to buy replacements. They are advertised on the wacom website, but have been out of stock for over 2 months. I reached out to customer service, but they don't know when they will be in stock.

    Works great on my Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 LTE, even with Samsung customer support saying there is no fine tip stylus that is compatible.

    Less than 17 days after purchasing, the tip came off making it useless. I'm not a pro member so I cannot return it, for defect

    Good for a knock off

    It's basically a knock off that works but still sucks. The point wasn't accurate to where I was drawing on my screen. Disappointing. .

    I bought this stylus a week ago and had to return it because the tip fell out. The 2nd one I currently have also has had the same issue, however I found the tip and put it back in. I'm not sure what the issue is but if it happens again, I will return it and find an alternative. It does work with the IPad mini 4 when the tip stays in.

    Great but one problem

    This is a 5 star item. But one fault makes it a three in m book. The tips can dislodge and get lost. Not for rough handling or field work and entry. Aside from that ONE issue, this pen makes smooth fast work for me as a note taker that prefers electronic from the pen/paper choice. Worked on a Surface pro 3 and an android tablet. If that one issue was resolvable, I would give it 5 stars.

    Not a Precision Tool but OK for Note-Taking

    I bought this pen about a month ago and I'm happy with it (please refer to the next paragraph if you're an artist). The main reason I thought about getting a stylus is that I've to work on an iPad mini and the buttons on the app I use are very small. Even though my fingers are not very big, I would end up losing a lot of time by tapping on the wrong option and this pen has helped a lot. I also have to take a fair amount of notes and I was doing this with my finger; it gets a bit annoying after a while. The tip of this stylus is not fully aligned on the tablet's surface but I've learned to compensate for this issue and it works just fine. I've not charged it yet, even though I've been using it for about 12 to 15 days (turning it on and off constantly throughout the day). I've to see how the charging thing goes and will be updating you on this later. Recommended for taking notes and stuff that really doesn't have to be extremely precise (again, once you learn to compensate for the alignment). DO NOT BUY IF YOU'RE AN ARTIST!! Invest in something that will enhance your skills. I've doodled on the BAMBOO PAPER app and I regret to inform you (from an amateur doodler/artist's point of view) that if you're planning on doing detailed drawings, you're going to have to spend more money on a stylus pen that's made specifically for your craft. Minor design flaws that can get a bit old for some people after a while: The BAMBOO logo has disappeared because of the friction from taking it in and out of my pocket but I don't really care about that. If they want their logo to stay on, maybe they can think about engraving it on the pen but that's Wacom's issue, not mine. Also, it has a massive amount of space between the pen and the clip to secure it so you better have a thick surface for it to grab on to, otherwise, it will dance all over the place or fall constantly. I would recommend to a friend, unless they are artists. Hope this was helpful!

    Great Stylus, 1 problem

    This stylus works on both iOS and Android devices. It works without pairing, but you can press the button on the shaft that will allow it to work with "problem" devices. The one problem is the nib. Sometimes the nib will fall out easily and is difficult to locate. When reattaching, make sure to feel for a click before using. I could only find replacement nibs on the manufacturer website. My son lost his not long after Christmas, I bought replacements, then found the original today. Luckily the replacements are inexpensive.

    Good for fine selection, not good for art

    Overall, I was glad that this was compatible with my computer and my smart-phone, and that it allowed for fine selection. It was really useful for texting and for certain apps, as well as certain games. It was far more convenient to use than my fingertips. However, when I tried using it in photoshop, I wasn't able to use it with the lasso tool. This device doesn't seem appropriate for when you need to select something and drag it, or at least in photoshop. It wasn't useful for drawing blueprints. The tip also comes loose a little too easily, and it got lost in my car early on. This stylus is great for getting the basic job done, and is a pretty good stylus to default to if you don't need something more specific. The average consumer will benefit from it, whereas a person looking to make a more serious investment should look into getting some of the more famous name brand products that push the technological envelope.

    Not impressed

    I purchased this Wacom stylus, the first time, I opened it and was headed out of town to a conference. The pen didn't work at all. After the exchange for a new pen, the second revealed that the first was missing it's tip. I didn't have the second one but a week and the tip popped out. This does not come with sparte tips nor a case for the pen to protect it. ...Furthermore, this stylus DID NOT work well on my pc, chrome book or Android phone for anything other than poking at things. Any attempt to write anything was not smooth and not fluid. I bought a no name brand off of Amazon and LOVE IT! It works beautifully!!! I do not recommend this stylus pen.
