I bought the pens to use with a touch-screen netbook/tablet. While the pens work well with the capacitive screen the broad, rounded tips are difficult to use for writing with. They are good for broad brush-strokes and shading but, to write a story or do numerical work it is very difficult to feel the point at which it goes from a fine line into a broad brush-stroke. The hard, pointed tips used in resistive screen pens seem much better suited to writing than the soft, rounded tips on these pens. However, the are very well made, light in the hand and probably work as designed just, not as I imagined. Still a good buy anyway.
