    Hi Spink10

    This thread has gotten a life of its own! You should be warned, you'll like your Roger iWand so much that you'll want to get another one. The SRU stylus are a little bit more expensive and require not only time for delivery but also time to get used to it--the famous light touch admonishments and the once in awhile fluff advice (which I don't do at all or very rarely--not enough to remember the last time I refluffed--LOL)

    Hold on to your sense of being 'cheap' because the longer you stay on the forum and the longer you use your iPad, you'll be wanting more apps, more this and that!

    Please come back with your review of the iWand.

    I don't feel like a can spend more than 30 for a stylus which one should I get? Do these last a long time?

    Hello Pluto6, I have a Zagg screen saver on my iPad. With the SRU stylus, I have not found any problems using the stylus with the Zagg product. Im having a little bit of a disappointment with the Zagg screen protector itself.

    I thought the Zagg was resistant to scratches...three weeks after I got it on my iPad, I was cleaning my iPad and I mustve had some grit on the screen and I rubbed with a microfiber cloth 3 very fine lines--only noticeable when the iPad is off. So Im ready to try something else on my iPad screen.

    Thanks for your advice. I'm going to try the cheap no name first, and if that doesn't work for me, I'll go the expensive route. I was surprised that the Power Support screen protectors was US$10 more than I paid for the Zagg @ Best Buy. I remember thinking that was expensive for plastic. I have since learned that anything Zagg is expensive but very good quality so I guess worth it(?).

    Matt -
    I don't clean my iPad with anything special - t shirt, whatever, the only thing I don't use is paper - that can scratch. But I have no scratches, although I cant say I have ever got any sand or anything on the screen. I like it, it is super thin, and antiglare ( although, not everyone likes antiglare as it does make the screen not as gorgeous). Hopefully the non name will be ok for you.

    Stylus

    There are 2 in the Intermediate price range that are under $30. The Camry and the light touch. The least expensive are the aluminum styli and they come in colors and various lengths. They are $19.99. I have those in various lengths.

    The telescoping styli solve the problem of which length you need. The entrepreneur goes from 5" to 12 " which costs $49.99. The Terminator goes from 5 1/2 " to 9 1/4" and the cost of that one is $45.99. It is pricey. If I could have operated that one, it is the one I would have bought.

    I sound like a saleswoman for stylus R Us! I can assure you that I'm not, just a satisfied customer. LOL.

    Just received my Roger iwand. After only fifteen minutes with it, I can say it is absolutely great!

    I have been using a Targus for a month or so---and actually thought it was pretty good---until I started using the iwand!

    Now, I realized that I was actually expecting the Targus to require much less pressure. After all, a capacitive effect should not have to rely on a lot of pressure.

    Thus far, I am delighted. The light touch is easy to become accustomed to.

    Thanks Jack

    Which stylus do you recommend for note taking that is below 39.99 - I feel guilty if I pay 40 :)

    @Spink10 - I have 3 of Jack's styluses. The Steve Jobs, The Donald Trump, and the 9" aluminum Roger iWand, and while the Jobs and Trump are both excellent, the one that I find using mostly for entertainment is the Roger iWand. It works perfectly, and the length allows me to put the pad at a nice reading length and effortllessly browse the net, do one "finger" typing, and the length and skinhead of the wand allows me to have complete visibility of the screen without my hands getting in the way.

    It also works wonderfully for note taking, but I prefer a thicker pen, and so the other styluses are more comfortable.

    After a few more days of use, the Boxwave has been put away, and the SRU are the ones I use.

    The "hype" of these is that they work perfectly every time, which is not the norm for a stylus judging from how many types, and brands there are. The beauty is that there are many styles, colors, features, etc. So not only do you get function but you also get style.

    Happy to answer any questions regarding my experience with these.
