A rather disappointing offer from Wacom
on April 18, 2015
I was happy to get this on sale as the I find the full retail price to be outrageous, particularly given the build quality as observed. At first I was extremely happy with it, but atfter only 3 or 4 weeks, I noticed a large paint chip missing from the barrel and arould where the silver pocket clip joins the black. While looking at this, I also noticed that the printed "bamboo" was also wearing off the silver part. though navigating apps is smooth and effortless, however before two months were up, I noticed a severe wear around the edges of the nib, so I went looking for replacements. That was an eye opener. Wacom does not sell them in their Canadian store or to Canada in the US store ($4.95 for 3). In the end I had to resort to ebay. I don't know if I got the real deal, because there was no branding on the package, so I won't say much except they are much less durable than the one that came on the stylus in the first place. That ended up being sliced through an un useable in under 3 months. A month later and I'm on my second replacement. SUMMARY: I have many styli, mostare really cheap,. In short the Bamboo has the best performance but by far the worst durability of any.
Come on Wacom, this is supposed to be a professional artist's tool. Get in the game.
