Three stylii, compared; this one stinks.,
This review is from: Generic 3 Pack of Universal Touch Screen Stylus Pen (Red + Black + Silver) (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Short and sweet:
I've tried three of the stylus brands offered on Amazon: The $15.00; the $11.99 aCase; and the cheap three-pack "Universal Touch Screen Stylus.".
It is easy to tell you which not to buy: the cheap ones. The rubber tips on them have too much friction. You can't write or draw easily; you literally feel like the Stylus is getting stuck on the screen. Guaranteed, one zillion percent, you will hate it.
Now, to the Boxwave vs. the aCase.
This isn't just a draw; there's not even a fight, because the two products are exactly the same (there's one subtle difference in the way the little headphone-jack string insert is attached to the pen. One uses a tiny, carbiner-type hook, and the other a ring. You'd probably never notice the difference, because there is non.
So, which to buy? The aCase is three dollars cheaper, but it only comes in black. That's it.

It actually comes in the same 4 colors as the boxwave stylus. Acase EZswipe Capacitive Stylus for Apple iPad 16GB, 32GB, 64GB WiFi + 3G, iPad 2, iPhone, iPod, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy, BlackBerry Playbook (Crimson Red) Thanks for your review though! I wasn't sure which stylus to go with but the Acase seems to be very highly recommended! Wouldn't have known about it if weren't for you. Thanks again!

Thank you Harry, that was a great review, exactly what I was looking for. And thanks to Lenard for the correction. I pretty much know what I'm going to purchase.

Dumb, Why would anyone want to write with a rubber tip. They make nylon tipped for that not a wide rubber tip ONLY MADE for touching. Duh, going to get these for use on my hand held GPS. They sound perfect!

The Stylus pens are for touching or tapping on touch devices, they are not for drawing. The Bluecell Stylus pens work great on the Kindle Touch. I got a set of 3 for $5.29 + free shipping, and they work GREAT!

But they are great if you don't need for them writing or drawing. Worked great for my purposes.
