You can now order Z Stylus in US for $29.99

Good news for those of you in the US who have been waiting in out for the Z Stylus pen to show up. It does appear that the wait is nearing an end.

At this point you can order it for $29.99 US. Be aware that the shipping date is not confirmed just yet. Based on what we’ve seen, this should mean only a matter of days. Amazon typically don’t use “Add To Cart” buttons unless they have determined that the shipping date is imminent.

Based on how long the North America market has waited up until this point, we believe that it’s only a few days away from shipping.

If you don’t like the idea of placing an order, you can check the Asus US online store from time to time because they have had stock sporadically. Other retailers has shown pre order only.

We decided weeks ago to order a Z Stylus from a Taiwan eBay seller and have been using it extensively over the past couple of weeks. A full review is upcoming!

    I already got the z stylus (ordered directly from Asus) and it works great with my ZenPAd 8.0 S. I use it mainly for note taking with LectureNotes. I also like the Trifold case with the stylus holder.

      nrseife, does the z-stylus’s pressure sensor work well in LectureNotes ???

    I tested the Z stylus further.
    Unfortunately, sometimes the stylus stops working for a few seconds up to ~30sec (seems random). The stylus then is not detected and I have to wait until it is detected again. Battery is full – I checked that. This is annoying, since I am taking notes and cannot afford to wait 30sec until the stylus is detected again.I use LectureNotes and SuperNode mostly in Landscape mode . Interestingly, this does not happen or to a lesser degree when taking handwritten notes in Portrait mode. …will continue testing…anyone else observed this issue?

      Thanks for the feedback. That is exactly how I planned to use this tablet and your review luckily saved me from waisting money on it. Any such behavior would make the tablet completely useless for me. I guess I am staying with my old Samsung Note 8… It’s a bit long in the tooth, but still works.

    Same kind of issue as nrseife, only less frequent. What I do is just tighten the screw (the one where you have to insert the battery) and it works just fine.
    But my main issue is the following: sometimes the stylus does not make continuous lines but rather dashed lines. This on the other hand is much more frequent. Putting away the stylus from the screen for about 5-10 seconds (up until the tablet does not detect the stylus anymore) does the trick, and I can then use it again. However this is a bit irritating because I am using the stylus extensively for my work, and it was one of the reasons I bought the zenpad (Z300 model, with the screen size). I am suspecting this could be fixed with a firmware update. I could not find any on the asus website, anyone knows if/when this is due?

      Did you notice that the dashed lines happens only when holding the tablet in portrait or landscape mode?

    I am only using my tablet in portrait mode, so I cannot tell whether this is due to portrait or landscape mode. I wanted to set the 5 second timer to less than that (maybe 1 or 2 seconds) but couldn’t figure out how to do this.

    I also noticed that this phenomenon happens more frequently when battery is almost empty, but not only.
