Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: GOOGLE NEXUS 7 HIGH QUALITY TOUCH SCREEN STYLUS by SUPERGETS® case - black (Electronics)
This sounded like a good idea at first, especially with all the 5-star reviews. However now I notice that all these positive reviews were written upon reception of the goods or shortly after. The trend seems to be that reviews further down in time appear to be mostly negative.
Sadly I have to confirm that this is not money well spent even for 99p. First impressions weren't good, it's as light and feels like a straw, and I find it drops of bounces off my hand easily (but that's probably me being clumsy), hitting the ground with a noise like bamboo windchimes. The descriptive "high quality" in the product name certainly feels like a misnomer (unless it applies to the touchscreen), it just about looks the 99p I paid for it.
After only 2 weeks, my stylus has given up already, and if the rubber tip hasn't caved in or fallen off already (I took good care of mine), it has stopped registering with the 3 touchscreens I've tried it on unless you press quite hard, which then makes it drag and harms precision, which sort of defeats the purpose. I don't even use mine any more as fingers are easier and more precise, or when I can, I just borrow the other half's metal/nylon stylus.
At this pace, I could also see it tearing off soon, and if you have to buy a new one every month, it's more a waste than a saving and you'd be better off buying a metal stylus, which for under a tenner (from £6), will also come with a ball pen and look so much better. Besides, rubber tips don't keep your screen fingerprint-free like nylon ones.
I guess I don't have anything positive to say about this item, but I won't slash it to 1 star either as you get what you pay for. My advice though, for a real saving, spend a little more for a stylus you will keep and want to use again and again.
