I haven't tried either of those, but I tried some cheap no-name one and a Pogo stick and didn't like either. I ponied up a little more money and recently bought the Kensington one and I love it. It has a pen on one side (I used to carry a separate pen) and the weight is much better. It also has the rubbery tip instead of the foam tip, which glides much smoother and is more accurate.

Wacom announced Wacom Bamboo Stylus, which is now listed on Amazon for $29.99 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004VM0SE6/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER) (mid-May ship date). Here's CNET's first look. (http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-31747_7-20055024-243.html)

One of the key selling points seems to be 6mm stylus tip (Wacom claims most other solutions have 8mm tip). It certainly looks nicer than oStylus or Griffin, at least to me.

Just got the targus one and it works great. And can be found everywhere.

Hopefully this thread helps you make your choice. I purchased the Boxwave off Amazon.

The oStylus was designed specifically for artists. For just note taking, the Griffin Stylus is adequate.

I agree with the bamboo, its said to have the thinnest capacitive point

This is the one that I has me most interested. If I were to buy another sylus for my iPad, I'd want to shell out the bucks for this one.

Here's a pretty nifty one, unfortunately its not available just yet for sale. But you have to admit these guys have a GR8 idea. Now all they need is the funding.
