    Ordered from nationwide with there small shipping fee to canada... Combining 2 or more pens makes it worthy. One cost 40 here, same price over there with shipping but when adding items shipping almost doesn't change.

    Just placed my order. Looks really nice! I use my slate in the folio,
    so the pen is never in the bay anyway.

    Just received my Axiotron Digitizer Pen AXT-MB100-0A01 from Nationwide Surplus

    It works great with my EP121.

    The pen fits in the folio loop and in the tablet's pen box - although the pen's button has to be arranged just right to fit (easy to do). It pop'd most of the way back out too, but caught on the pen's button. A slight twist brought it on out.

    It is delightful to write with (I have not tried drawing with it, nor have I tried the different nibs).

    I did NOT load any special drivers and the pen button worked...
    You can do a right-click by holding down the pen's button and touching the screen (no wait needed).

    The button is a rocker switch - for a right-click - press and hold the end of the switch that is closest to the pen's tip. The far end of the rocker switch does nothing (at least not with the standard drivers).

    When holding the pen's button down, as you approach the screen, you will see the 'right click circle' feedback on the screen - then just tap the screen to execute the right click. No waiting needed. Or, if you do not want to do a right click, then when you see the circle just release the button before taping the screen and you will exit Right Click mode.

    Although the 3 pack offer was no longer available, I still bought three, so I could leave one at my desk, another at my easy chair, and one in the tablet.
    Got them for $9.99 each with free shipping and 10% off = $26.97.

    [Update - the 3-pack is back in stock. $24.99. Go here and pick "(3) Axiotron Digitizer Pen Modbook & Tablet PC by Wacom"]
    With 10% off coupon that is about $22.50 for 3 pens delivered.

    "Nationwide" is a 10% off coupon code good thru May 31,2011 for orders over $20.

    Many thanks to this board and the posters who turned me on to this gem!

    -Rob

    Even with the discount the shipping to Canada is outrageous.

    Would anyone have another link to the driver that was at the previously listed Wacom page? It looks like that page is gone.

    I just got the Studio Pen and it's nice!
