    My husband did not want one, but I did. Well that changed as soon as he tried it. He keeps stealing mine while we wait for his to arrive. It’s very comfortable to hold. Even natural. The tip is soft, but efficient. I am very pleased with this purchase.

    UPDATE- My husband decided to order in the generic ones in a value pack. Although it wasn’t a bad purchasee, I personally prefer this one. For lack of a better way to describe it, the soft end is supposed to bounce back when squished. The generic ones don’t seem nearly as resilient and I would be concerned with one not holding up as it should and inadvertently scratching the screen. The marware does not push down the same way and it bounces back immediately so I don’t have the same concerns there.

    I purchased this mainly because it came in different colors and I was able to buy a black, orange and pink one. There were no reviews when I purchased and I assumed that I would also be getting top of the line quality for the premium price paid. I paid $15 each…

    This product meets basic expectations as it works properly, but unless you are in it just for the color I would suggest a different product as there is nothing special about this one. I would compare the quality to others available in the $3-$5 range.

    Aside from the high price the other negative is the clip on the stylus is extremly tight, I had to bend it somewhat to allow it to slide in the designated slot on my tablet case. I am a bit worried that repeating the bending may snap the clip off, I wish it had a little more give.

    Overall I wish I would have purchased something else for the money, you will be disappointed if you assume like me that spending a bit extra will yeild something superior.

    – 45 day update –
    I have had and used this stylus moderately (<1hr/day) for about 45 days now and have some further comments.
    - Suprisingly the clip is still intact, although I rarely clip it on anymore as I can tell it is a clip or 2 away from falling off.
    - The Marware marking on the stylus is nearly worn off (I never really liked that the manufacturer put their name prominently on the stylus, so having it wear off is fine with me)
    - The rubber on the tip of the stylus is starting to develop hairline cracks, I suspect they will grow and eventually cause the rubber tip to completly split, but for the time being it still works fine.
    - I commented originally that this is comparable to others in the $3-$5 range, but may up this a bit as this one does have a better feel to the tip than some of the more rigid cheaper ones I have tried.

    After 45 days extended use I pretty much stand with my original rating. The one thing I grew to like was the feel and responsiveness or the tip, however I am not convinced it is worth the price with the questional durability of the stylus. I suspect this stylus will last 3 months as the clip is on its last leg and the tip is showing signs of weakness. I have seen this product flucuate in price and was recently down to $10. I think I would feel better if I got the stylus for that price, but even then it is on the high side of the range for me if its durability doesn’t hold up.

    Great stylus and very easy to use with the new Kindle Fire HD 7″. I also highly recommend this stylus for an iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. I have a 4th gen iPod Touch and it works great with that. The tip looks too big but it isn’t. Prior to this I purchased another stylus (Ten One) and it stop working after a month. These aren’t just a “pen” with a rubber tip. They have passive circuitry that mimics the static (capacitive) touch properties of your finger.

    Highly recommended.
