I have been trying to use my iPad at work more and more to eliminate carrying around a legal pad and always wasting paper. The issue I've come into is writing on the iPad has been a challenge. I've tried multiple pen stylus' before and never been happy so when I had the opportunity to review this one I jumped at the opportunity.

Initial impressions using the Bamboo Stylus were bad. I fired up Penultimate and started trying to write. The grip felt good, the stylus is comfortable in your hand but it was STILL like trying to write with a crayola crayon. It just didn't work well. The text was hard to read and it looked like a 4 year old was writing.

I was disappointed and tried a few other apps, the touch sensitivity of the Bamboo stylus is great. It is responsive and much faster then the other brands I've tried but it was still hard to write with.

But then I found NOTE TAKER HD, which is the ultimate app if you want to do hand writing on the iPad and use it like a real legal pad. Note taker HD gives you a large box on part of the screen you write it, which makes it easy as you write big but then the app shrinks the text down and puts it on the page. It's very slick and if you want to use the Bamboo Stylus for writing I highly recommend you pair it with the Note Taker App. After I did that I loved the Bamboo Stylus.

I carry my iPad around currently in a Marware eco-vue case and while there is no pen clip on the case I found the Bamboo stylus slides perfectly on the center fold of the case and will stay when the iPad is closed. So now I have my ipad, my case and a stylus.

In summary:

-Feels like writing with a crayon in most apps I tried.

You have a lot of choices when it comes to capacitive stylii - but the Wacom brand carries a lot of weight and loyalty, and that has turned this johnny-come-lately stylus into the de-facto choice for many iPad owners and artists.

That's fine, the Bamboo is a great stylus. It works well and feels substantive, solid, and well made. I have only one problem with it - the PenGo Touchpen iPad Stylus is half the price and is virtually identical to the Bamboo in every way. Both have a smallish rubber-bubble tip, are about the same size, length, and style, and both feel and behave exactly the same way in every iPad app I've used (Penultimate, uPad, Sketchbook Pro, Inspire Pro, etc). Also, both have the same "squishy" character when writing or drawing. Still, as far as squishyness is concerned, both the Pengo and Bamboo stylii feel much better than their competitors thanks to their smaller tips.

I will say this - the Bamboo's construction feels more substantive than the Pengo's does, and it LOOKS more professional. For some, that's a critical point, especially when cost is no object. For instance, the Bamboo feels more "solid" where the Pengo feels light and empty. But does that make the Bamboo worth twice the Pengo stylus? Personally, I think not... besides, some may prefer the lighter hand-feel of the Pengo. Ultimately, it's a matter of taste and cost.

You certainly won't be disappointed with the Bamboo - but if you want the same great writing experience at half the cost, you should seriously consider the PenGo Touchpen iPad Stylus too.

I've used three styli extensively, and I can say that without question, the Bamboo stylus is the best of the bunch. The other styli I've used and will compare it to are the Targus Stylus for Apple iPad 16GB, 32GB, 64GB WiFi + 3G, iPad 2, iPhone, iPod, Tablet AMM01US (Black), and the Acase 2nd Generation Apple iPad / Xoom/Transformer/Galaxy Tab/Iconia Tab/Play Book / All tablet PC Capacitive Stylus Newest Model(Metallic Silver). The question of whether or not the margin by which it is better than the rest is really a matter of how much you're willing to put up with.

Functionally, the Bamboo stylus is on par with the Targus and the ACase. The tip feels the same, and has the squishy give when you apply it to the iPad's surface. The Bamboo and the ACase have the slimmer style tips, which is a plus. One caveat to note is that the Bamboo has a lower tip than the ACase. What generally happens is that when writing with the ACase, the longer tip squishes more, so that it actually moves to the side. I generally found this annoying, and the Bamboo doesn't exhibit this as much.

Where the Bamboo wins out dramatically is the resistance from the stylus when writing or drawing. There simply is none -- the glide is as fluid and effortless as pen to paper. The Targus has slightly more resistance, while the ACase produces the most drag. I'd rate the Bamboo drag as none, the Targus as slightly noticeable, and the ACase as very noticeable. To be fair, after extensive use, you'll get accustomed to the drag.
