Time for some positive comments on the stylus. Bought tablet in early December, stylus since late December - read all early reviews of stylus, was shocked and expected the worst - Stylus arrived, luckily it didnt have any immediate major hardware flaws I could notice - initial thoughts was Mmmmm, seemed just OK. Then I noticed the hover click 2 or 3 times a day. required me to unscrew the battery to reset - at the time, I thought it was 'barely' usable due to tails and the random hover click - since the last firmware update, definitely better - tails pretty much gone, hover click still occurs 2 or 3 tiimes a day, but this time I can apply a little pressure on the nib and it seems to reset itself. Firmware seemed to help reset when I apply some pressure.. not sure how?? * I can write for 30-40 mins non-stop without encountering the hover click, if it does occur I just press nib against the screen and goes about. * battery life is disappointing, but I suspect its related to hover click. If the pen is idle and it goes to hover click I think it then starts to drain as its acting as constant writing. * dead spots around the edges of screen.. annoying * having to unscrew pen each and everytime I stop using the pen If Dell can fix the battery issue and totally eliminate the hover clicks (i only get 2 or 3 times a day). This is very acceptable, I find the pen v accurate and can write very small. The only downside will be 'what is the real battery life' no silo to place pen... still have to 'manage' the pen instead of knowing is 100% always available and reliable I suspect the 'new' pen will simply be the 'old' pen with the factory reliabilities resolved.
