Anyone have any preferences? I dont want to pay more than $10.
Your options will be very limited for under $10.
These are all pretty inexpensive....?
What are you wanting to do with the stylus? I have one just like the link you posted, it is not great for anything requiring precision, including hand writing. In fact, I just used it this morning in an attempt to do away with using a notepad and pen at work.
I mainly want to use it for typing and playing games ect. I dont use my tablet that much for note taking, like you prompted, but I would just like to get my "simpleton's" use from it without so many fingerprints.
Depends upon what you plan on using the stylus for.
I have 2 styli that I use. For general doodling and tap-typing, I use a cheapo rubber tip stylus. For more accurate control, I use an Adonit Jot. $15 @Walmart. Wonderful stylus.
Just be sure it's felt-tipped. The rubber ones sometimes feel like they're jerking along if you're trying to write.
I've heard this before, like those cheap ones on amazon, a ten pack for 99 cents... figured that had to be a ton of junk, or at least low quality. I will look more into the felt tipped ones...anyone have any favorites about those? lol
Don't know what DShap5 means with felt, allow me to refer to microfiber.
You could take a look at http://www.ifaraday.com and http://www.lynktec.com.
I'm using a Lynktec TruGlide Pro, that I really like a lot for both writing and drawing.
This is the best one IMO for the price:
The Friendly Swede Bundle of 6 Micro-Knit Hybrid Fiber Tip Universa... http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00E0GV9HI/ref=cm_sw_r_udp_awd_R-kFtb0JAD70N
I have these and they work great!
Those look pretty cool. And that's a good price for 6 of them. And also, since I have everyone's attention, I'm new here, and I'm assuming OP means newbie or "question-asker"------What does OP stand for? Just curious.
OP= original poster. I thought the same thing when I joined.
Ahhhhhhh. Very good. Thank you sir.
A stubby one with blood flowing through it....
Well, i'm already using that one. I was thinking more... inanimate...
Not sure how good they are, but Best Buy's Deal of the day has styluses on sale for $2.99 normally $7.99. They are Rocketfish branded, so I'm not sure how good they are.
Thanks for the information I'll look into it
The brand shouldn't matter on those type, they are all pretty much the same. I have one that looks just like it that I think was from Belkin.
I've been using a targus stylus for 3 years.
Sometimes they have 2 for 1 deals. Don't go cheap. Take it out of the box and try them out.
Okay, so there are a lot of stylus's out there... and they all vary in price. I think that the "best" option is to buy at least two- one for general use, and one that has a finer point for highlighting words in a kindle app.
In regards to a stylus that I enjoy, I have an ampen stylus that I use really often. It has a felt-tip, I think it is called, and I have some replacement tips too. It is so much better than the other like three kinds that I've had over the course of the past four or five years.
so there are a lot of stylus's out there
I know this thread has been dead for a little while, but in case anyone is still subscribed, I have found that the best stylus out of a few that I've ordered is the amPen stylus.
It writes very well, and it is amazingly smooth for scrolling. It is very accurate, and you can order replaceable tips. Awesome stylus, and an awesome price.
I like that brand. I have quite a few of their products.
I have a Targus one that cost $15.00. I also have some that I picked up at a dollar store ($1 each) and others that cost $2-5 each. The cheaper ones work well for me. One of my nieces likes to use a stylus for drawing on my iPad, but is hard on them. $1 is not a big loss.
