Bring the creativity and accuracy of freehand to your iPad with the Virtuoso Touch Screen Stylus and Pen. When combined with Apps such as SketchBook, iAnnotate and Penultimate, Virtuoso allows you to create, annotate and capture your ideas with a smooth touch tip. And the built-in ballpoint pen also offers a comfortable grip.
Pros: Quality build (for the most part). Solid feel. Sharp aesthetics. This thing looks pretty cool. The pen writes alright. It's a basic Parker ballpoint on the inside, so don't expect anything spectacular but it gets the job done. Stylus works great with Swype keyboard on Android, which confuses me because scrolling isn't all that accurate.
Cons: I guess capacitive touch screen styluses (is that how it's written in plural?) still have a bit of a way to go when it comes to precision. The stylus is a little less accurate than my fingertip. Scrolling sometimes ends with a dialog box or link being clicked when I really didn't want it to. The hollow rubberish stylus tip also seems like it might not last and will eventually crack with extended use, but that remains to be seen. Also, the cap does not fit over the stylus end, so when writing you have the potential to lose the cap.
Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a stylus/pen combo, you don't have too many choices, but this one seems alright. I've tried it on a Droid X, a Nexus S 4G and a Xoom and everything seems ok except for scrolling which is a bit touchy and, like I said, winds up opening links or clicking stuff I was trying to scroll past. Without the scrolling issue it would've gotten 5 "eggs".
