Rated 1 out of 5 by Works Great...for a month I bought this back in June when I bought my new HP Spectre x360. The stylus worked great for about a month, but then stopped working entirely. Even the app click portion will not press as it used to. The computer does not recognize it and won't allow anything to be done through the pen. Only fingers work. Would not recommend, especially at the price. September 2, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by This product is not worth the investment I purchased this pen to use with the HP Spectre x360 because the HP website reported that this pen would work on this computer. The pen worked great for about 6-8 weeks. Then it stopped working. I have replaced the batteries multiple times, and this has no effect. I can randomly get the pen to work maybe 1-2 times a week, but I am not sure why it decides to work at that time. As a full time PA student, I need the pen to work consistently. I have not been able to get HP customer service to help me resolve the problem. July 25, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by HP Envy x360 I recently purchased a HP Envy x360 M6 convertible, m6-aq005dx (model number). I already owned an HP Active Stylus - worked great with my HP ENVY 2in1 with detachable keyboard (unfortunately this model was plagued with keyboard problems - such as losing connectivity). But the pen worked flawlessly with it and I was able to use it to take notes. I have spoke to about five different HP tech reps and salespeople, half of which say this stylus will work and half of which say it will not. I just got off the phone with a HP tech rep who stated there was no compatible stylus with this particular model. Why would anyone design a convertible laptop without a stylus for use in taking notes (I use One Note). Is this the level of design we can expect from HP from now on? I will return this product and buy a brand that will allow use of a digital / smart stylus for taking notes. And go with a brand where the tech representatives can answer a simple question as to what stylus will work. July 6, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Come'on Man!! Horrible. This is a serious joke. For what I paid for my HP Spectre 360 I would have liked a pen that works like the one on my Note 5 phone or better. This pen is crazy expensive and it needs a battery. You have no way to tell when it shuts off so you go through batteries like crazy. Besides that the pen or stylus itself is horrible as well. Please make a pressure sensitive better stylus for us. Please. And make it cheaper. Actually, just send us one because this was a huge jip. I was told that this was the only one that worked with my computer also so that is why I bought it. June 8, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Awful Product This product is horrible. First off it is not worth the money. I've messed with the settings and tried about 5 programs to draw with this pen, including OneNote and Fresh paint. The pen does not write smoothly at all. I've tried to draw with it and the lines were just awful. Nothing would smooth out the lines, and it has weird small bumps and curves in the line. Even just writing with it is bad. Not only that, but you have to press too hard to actually write anything. Just a bad experience, I would not recommend buying this. The lines drawn with my finger and mouse were smoother and better than drawing with the pen. May 31, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Acceptable if you need stylus. I don't sense this has multiple pressure levels as some true artists styluses have. For jotting in one note, I find I'm still looking for that magic setting where my block print notes are complete. It fills in the letter "e" for example no matter what I do writing normal size. However, astonishingly, OneNote's handwriting recognition takes my doctor's chicken scratch and is near 100% accurate converting to type. This is a note jotter, not an artists tool. Other gripes with the stylus: AAAA battery never seen one before. The battery is at the top of the stylus, typically you want any weight at the bottom of the stylus, or at worst where you grip it. It's such smooth aluminum, my fingers slide right down it. Some inelegant duct tape addressed that issue. IMO overall design works against function. Looks nice. I'd buy it if I needed a stylus, but plenty of room for improvement. IMO a lot of the problem ins using Synaptics instead of W***m to develop the software. W***m has been doing stylus/tablets much longer and has much more experience and their product is far more refined. For basic writing, this will get the job done. April 23, 2016
