There are some very good...
January 10, 2013
There are some very good things about this pen and some things that I feel need
to be improved.
Pros: The pen is small and lightweight, yet sturdy and writes well. There was
no "priming" by scratching a piece of paper with it for ages; it wrote perfectly
right out of the package. I am usually disappointed by such small pens, but it
was just thick and long enough for me to write with (albeit I have small hands).
The twist function will not open by itself, and has a smooth action to it.
Cons: The clip, the stylus, and the price are my main gripes. The clip is
extremely tight, perhaps due to its small size. It actually tore a couple
stitches in my jeans pocket when I removed it slowly. I need a more
pocket-friendly clip for an EDC pen like this one. The capacitive stylus is a
mixed package. You have to apply ample pressure in order for the screen sensors
to activate - it doesn't work on a light touch like with your fingers. Sliding
and drawing things on a screen is fine, but tapping things requires way too much
force to be practical. I wound up being less accurate than when using my
fingers due to the stabbing required to use the stylus. Finally, at $10, I
think it is too expensive considering its flawed functionality. Yes, the
construction is excellent, but the poor clip and stylus defeat its purpose: an
EDC pen which can double as a stylus for your capacitive touch screen devices.
