    The tips on the vara stylus is very poor and fails after two wee

    The tips on the vara stylus is very poor and fails after two weeks of use. I have problems with my fingers and need the stylus to last longer than two weeks. Plus paying $20.00 for a new stylis every two weeks is a tough sell for someone on a fixed income. Barnes and Noble needs to come out with replacement capacitive rubber tips.

    Not very durable tip. Bought this to work with my first grader son's nook tablet. The tip was thrashed in less than 6 hours. I wish there was some kind of tip replacement kit avaiable. I don't want to be responcible to pay twenty bucks for a whole new stylus.

    BE SURE TO READ THE REVIEWS! There are many problems with the clip breaking and the rubber tip tearing. The replacement policy for Barnes and Noble is only for 14 days. I'm very surprised that they do not stand behind this product. I will not be purchasing another stylus from them - will find a different company. Another review suggested Target. Sorry Barnes and Noble - you dropped the ball on this one.

    Sure you can attach it to the inside of your nook.  you just can't close the cover flat.  What a waste of money.  Bought a $3 stylus that works just as well.

    My mom has a hard time with her fingers and the screen of her Nook HD. This Stylus is what she needed! Now she can get around on the screen without the frustration of going to the wrong page. The Stylus is made very well and I love that it comes in colors to match her cover.

    I don't have this particular stylus, but you can buy one at Walmart and they are a little cheaper. I bought one there over 6 months ago and am still using it. Sorry B&N.

    I've been using the stylus for several weeks with good results.

    I've been using the stylus for several weeks with good results. The tip is soft, rubbery, and about the size of a pencil eraser. I like the rubbery, rigid feeling of the grip. I also like the clip feature. When not in use, I keep it clipped it to the binder of the HD+ protective cover. I haven't noticed any wearing on the rubber tip. It's handy on word games. Using the stylus helps keep smudges to a minimum. I am satisfied with this product.

    I used this for months until my four year old grand-daughter chewed on the tip. I'm going out tomorrow for a new one!

    This stylus was fantastic at first. After a month or so I found a small tear in the tip, and I've been needing to use more pressure to do anything. 
    As for accuracy, the opposite's been true in my case. Using this stylus makes typing very frustrating, as I wind up unintentionally repeating letters and adding strings of punctuation marks.

    With GENTLE use the tip lasted about six weeks. Very poor quality. While the tip was whole, the stylus made the Nook experience much better. I'm disappointee in the cost, considering the quality of the product.
