I realize you mentioned "quality" in your OP, and that a low price automatically makes consumers think "junk," but I purchased a Targus for $14.95 locally, then got an email from Meritline (a place that usually ships from China, which sometimes takes a week or two) showing what looked like the same exact stylus for $1.99 with free shipping! Well, as usual, it was a long wait, but the stylus works just as well as the $14.99 Targus (which I quickly returned). The $1.99 one works every bit as well as the Targus did (which made me wish I had ordered an extra one for backup while they were on sale - regular price $3.99, free shipping). The only difference is the $1.99 version is a little shorter, which in my case, is more comfortable to use. YMMV.
