What customers say about "Key Specs"
Adonit Pixel (ADPBL) Smart Creative Stylus Pressure Sensitivity Pen
  • The stylus itself looks and feels nice. The feeling of writing with a hard tip is better than with the soft rubber or mesh tips of other styluses.
  • The tip looks like a Wacom stylus tip too, much to my relief after having to put up with spongy ballooned stylus heads.
  • Awesome purchase, glad I did get this stylus. Not too light nor too heavy feel. Sleek enough. Definitely love the tip not being wide.
  • The tip offset with the marks you're making is really noticeable in some apps and on some iPad versions, so you're pretty much taking a gamble when you buy this.
  • The tip seemed secure both times before in/rescrewing. Unit hadn't been dropped or anything--it literally just lay on my desk while I typed, and quit working.
Wacom Bamboo Fineline 2 (CS600C1B) Fine Point, Thin Tip Stylus for iPad
  • When it did work it was good, with a good tip feel, not too laggy. It can easily be pressed and it takes very little pressure.
  • It does write fantastic when connected. I take a lot of notes for work and needed something to use on my iPad that was had a fine tip.
  • The Wacom Bamboo stylus pen is balance, just about the right size and amount of weight to feel like a real pen. Writing on the iPad surface is also feels nice, thanks to great design of the pen tip.
  • The pen tip starts to look a little rough if you use it daily and doesn’t always register with my ipad/iphone screen.
  • This tip is just as loud, clacking on the glass screen every time I pick up the pen.

What customers say about "Features"
Adonit Pixel (ADPBL) Smart Creative Stylus Pressure Sensitivity Pen
  • The stylus has two buttons near the tip, where my fingers naturally rest. I only use one for switching between pencil and eraser mode.
  • The stylus is heavy enough that I know what I'm doing with it, but light enough that I can move it easily.
  • It comes with a portable charging platform and the pixel itself keeps a charge for days.
  • This stylus works great with a few free art programs like the previously mentioned MediBang Paint, which justified the cost for me.
  • There are 2 buttons for setting commands which are right at your finger tips, but requires deliberate pressing to use so that you don’t accidentally press them.
Wacom Bamboo Fineline 2 (CS600C1B) Fine Point, Thin Tip Stylus for iPad
  • I will say it is lighter and feels better in the hand. I notice the pressure sensitivity more when using Bamboo Paper, and had no issue with offset, lag, or palm rejection.
  • Palm rejection also works very well on Bamboo Paper. Second best app is Notes Plus.
  • The stylus is exceedingly easy to pair with your device and with apps that offer support, enables better control than a finger offers as well as pressure sensitivity and palm rejection.
  • The main issue is that app is not supporting side button and pressure sensitivity.
  • The pen cap is really easy to break, it broke within the first month of use in two places.
