What customers say about "Key Specs"
Apple Pencil for iPad Pro (MK0C2ZM/A)
  • Pressure sensitivity is the best I've seen. It's better than Microsoft's Surface pen.
  • Can be used on the side of the tip for shading effects.
  • Length of the pencil is longer than needed probably due to the battery. Very comfortably.
  • The pencil itself is quite heavy due to heavy the rechargeable battery inside.
  • It’s good quality, but the weight of it is slightly distracting to draw with, especially as I personally am used to real pencils and pens.
Wacom CS-100 Bamboo Solo Stylus - Black
  • The pen uses a dense but springy and soft rubber tip to register contact with the capacitive touchscreen of a compatible tablet or phone.
  • The tip provides good feedback and overall feeling when in contact with the screen of the device.
  • You can feel both the pressure of the pen against the screen and the motion and pressure of the pen and it does feel very much like writing on paper.
  • It's comfortable to hold and sports the size, solidity and feel of a quality fountain pen.
  • The smaller tip compared to other I have tried is very responsive and works well both on the small mobile phone and with the Tablet very positively in all cases.
  • I found the rubber tip too soft in use. There wasn't sufficient resistance for me.

What customers say about "Features"
Apple Pencil for iPad Pro (MK0C2ZM/A)
  • It works very well for drawing and selecting objects in the design apps such as Concepts or AutoCad 360. It does not have any lag and draws smoothly.
  • The battery lasts for a very long time and charges in a matter of minutes by plugging into the iPad lighting port. It also comes with an adapter to connect to a charging cable.
  • The battery life is good, but having to charge it at all is a little odd to me. But the battery lasts for a long time and it pleases me.
  • The Apple pencil does not work when swiping from right to left from off the screen to open split screen.
  • Battery life is appalling short. Frequently loses Bluetooth connection. Over priced in relation to its performance.
Wacom CS-100 Bamboo Solo Stylus - Black
  • These have a nice weight to them, made of solid hard wearing material and are very reactive with touch screens.
  • The pen clasp on the side of the stylus allows me to secure it in the spine of my tablet cover so I won't lose it.
  • I fully recommend this product to anyone who wants to make handwritten digital notes on documents or e-notepads.
  • Feels just right. Experience Bamboo Solo's perfectly balanced and comfortable in-hand feel thanks to the ergonomic triangular design and soft-touch surface.
  • The nib glides well, but because there is no lid to cover the nob end, I got a small tear in the nib quite quickly from it being in my bag.
