    Today I got the Targus iPad stylus at Best Buy. So far I am extremely pleased with the stylus.
    The stylus is compatible with the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and now the iPod Nano.
    The stylus has some weight behind it but it feels very solid. It weighs 9.6 oz.
    It is 4 3/8 inches long, it feels like I am writing with a real pen. It is also very easy to write notes or draw a picture with.
    The tip is soft rubber so it will not scratch your devices screen.
    Oh, I almost forgot to mention, it is very stylish. :D

    Love the Targus stylus. I now have 3 of them, I keep misplacing them. You can buy/order them at BestBuy. They sell out quickly.

    I tried one out yesterday.. Took it out the package and gave it a test run on the display pad. It worked quite nice.

    $30 is pretty steep though for something so simple.. I'm going to wait for a sale or for it to be cheaper before I buy one.

    Great bulid quality though, and perfect length.

    It's not $30, I got it at best buy for around $15. You can go on to the Targus website and look at it there. On the site I believe it's $15.

    Good heavens, $30 dollars for something that sells for $17 ! A bit too much profit for my taste.

    I haven't checked out ebay as I was in BestBuy's getting a Zagg Sheild and saw it there and thought , hmmmmm.

    Well I just checked best buys website, and $17.99 was the price. So I'll stop by my store an pick one up.

    When I was out buying a new gps I found the one I wanted. In store it was $30 more. The manager informed me that they match their online websites. Sure enough got to the counter and it was the web price.

    Wish I known that a couple days ago, I wanted it lol

    guys, quite arguing whether it's 30 bucks or 17. Think a moment, could there be more than one Targus stylus sold by Best Buy? One is a pen and stylus, the other is stylus only.

    Hello StevenM1TX, welcome to the forum! When you surf this forum, I would suggest you check the dates of the thread. This one is from October 2010. These guys are all probably on their second or third stylus by now.:):)

    You can buy knock off stylus from Focal Price for less than 3 bucks. Similar in design and good build quality.

    You might check the stylus threads in the "accessories" subforum. There are a lot of options.
