Targus 2-in-1 Stylus for iPad review

£13.80 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Targus

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

The Targus is decent at sketching and writing, but not comfortable enough to do so for long periods of time.

Not the first stylus in the “black body, silver clip, silicon-rubber nib” group, Targus' 2-in-1 Stylus for iPad (£13.80) falls between the Griffin and Kensington models in both weight and length at 4.5 inches in length, and falls roughly in the middle in weight, as well.

Like the Kensington Virtuoso, the Targus also provides a ballpoint pen tip – hence the “2-in-1” in the title – which is easily replaceable.

The Targus is decent at sketching and writing, but not comfortable enough to do so for long periods of time.

I found the stylus end of the 2-in-1 adequate for both writing and sketching.

It’s just heavy enough to provide the right balance for writing without needing to put your palm on the screen; however, its weight may prove taxing if you’re trying to write for long periods of time.

Likewise, it's easy enough to do line art using the Targus, but I had to grip the stylus close to the nib to achieve any sort of precision.

  • Overall: We give this item 7 of 10 overall

If you’re looking for a device that can navigate, write, sketch, and jot down paper notes, the Targus 2-in-1 is a decent offering. However, unless you’re specifically looking for a stylus with a ballpoint pen, you should consider a more specialized model.
