The mechanism problems that were apparent in the 800 model were fixed in the 800+ model, much to my delight. The mechanism extends and retracts the pencil much more smoothly than the last model and has not showed any signs of jamming from using the mechanism. It is extremely useful if you don't want to damage the tip from dropping it on the ground (which I do more than I should), or to prevent it from making holes in your shirt pockets.
The text which says "800+ | 0.5 mm" is slightly bigger than on the 800 model and of a different font (Helvetica / Arial maybe?). Not sure how I feel about that; the original slanted squarish font felt more industrial and sleek, but those are minor details.
The build quality is as I would expect from rotring: it's an absolute joy to hold and perfect for long writing sessions or drawing. The texture on the grip, the metal hexagon, and the red ring shows the industrial design language of rotring very well and makes long sessions of note-taking so much more interesting. (Using the original 800 was one of the reasons I got through English class without being bored to death.)
The touchscreen tip works well with my iPad but I have not yet tested it for long periods of use so I cannot give a complete analysis on that.
Edit: Upon further use, the stylus is, as the other reviewer already said, a bit unwieldy. The grip is a bit low for a stylus, the response is somewhat inaccurate, and it sometimes sticks to the screen. In the end, the stylus is interesting to play with for a while, but impractical for conventional use.
All in all, although this pencil will make quite a dent in your wallet, I feel that it is well worth the price given its sturdy construction and superior mechanisms. It will most likely last me years if I don't do anything stupid, like drop it on the ground and bend the tip into an L shape, or lose it (but knowing me I probably will).
The difference between this one and the regular 800 is the stylus tip (this also comes with two spare rubber tips). Personally that's not too useful in my case since I don't normally use one with my electronic devices anyway. I actually prefer the look of the regular 800.
The finish on the silver units are slightly less pleasing than the black versions. The silver version has a smoother finish where as the blacks have a more textured finish which I prefer.
Overall a good pencil. The retractable tip makes it a good everyday pencil and I got this at a good price so this will be my daily carry Rotring. Overall though I would say a Rotring 800 (non plus version) in black is still my favorite.
I'm knocking a star off because the lead does break easily and the tip is fragile. Thankfully its a retractable tip so tip deformations aren't as common as the non-retractable Rotring 600.
When the lead usually breaks its usually because I'm writing too hard, so a gentler writing style would suit this pencil to reduce lead breakage. I switched my writing style to be a bit more gentler and now lead breakage is mostly a non-issue. I am using 0.5 lead so breakages should be more common than the 0.7 version of this pencil.
There is definitely a wobble to the pencil, but it doesn't bother me because I usually use retractable tip pencils.
Overall, its a great pencil, especially for light-handed people.
Update to review - failed after a month. Worked well up to that point. Ggoing to return for a replacement. I'll stick with 600's from here on out.
