Original Review followed by an updated review, based upon Targus correcting an issue. Originally rated 1 star... updated to 4 stars.
This seemed like a decent purchase before I actually received the product. Here is what I experienced:
1 Pen cap does not stay on. If you lose the cap, you also lose the ability to use this as a stylus. Additionally, your pen is always exposed.
2 FYI: Very Heavy. I can understand why (it is a laser pointer/pen). Just thought you should know.
3 FYI: Functions decently as a stylus, although the stylus tip is wider than most.
4 FYI: If you buy a Targus iPad 2 case , the stylus has difficulty fitting in the stylus holder. Also, if your case has a stylus holder located in the spine of the case, chances are you will be inadvertently turning the laser pointer on while carrying the case. The laser pointer button is not recessed, so closing the case and applying any pressure while carrying it will cause the case to press against the button.
Point #1 is the big issue... the other comments are minor.
9/25/11: Update to my Original Review (above):
Based on the response from Targus, I called them and very quickly reached a customer service rep. No wait time. The rep was very friendly and helpful during our conversation. She took my info, apologized for the inconvenience, and explained that the stylus has a known issue with the cap not staying on. She explained that a replacement would be provided at no cost. 5 days later I received the new stylus and the issue appears to be corrected. Overall, outstanding customer service from Targus.
I would give this product 4 stars now that the cap has been fixed. Also, to be fair: This is the first issue I have encountered with a Targus product, and I own at least 6 items from them. With a track record of quality products, I will chalk the stylus situation up to a one-off mistake. Add in their outstanding customer service, and I will continue to purchase their products.
