2+1 (T2300) by Pilot Pentopia

>> Read Review (Rating 4/5) <<

The Pilot Pentopia 2+1 stylus is Pilot�s most popular stylus replacement, and it is easy to see why. The 2+1 not only comes with a orange stylus tip, but also has a pen and pencil stored inside its small body. The 2+1 is silver with black accents and makes for a very attractive stylus. Each of the slides that exposes the tips are a different color. The stylus slide is a light maroon, the 0.5 pencil slide is light grey, and the black ink slide is dark grey. There is also a picture or text beneath the color guides that says what their function is also. Clicking another point half-way pulls the current one back in.

Unscrew the top to reveal an eraser, and unscrew the bottom to replace the pencil lead or ink. The 2+1 does not fit into the Visor stylus silo, but it does have a pocket clip.

Good Stylus, Pen, Pencil
I just purchased my Pentopia, and it is one of the best Visor purchases I have made. Each of the functions is clearly marked, and color coded so it is easy to determine which button produces which point. I read the previous reviews, and they helped to convince me that the Pentopia was a worthwhile product. The reviews were right, this is a good product. I would recommend it to any one with a handheld.

Just Damn Useful.
I was in my local Office Depot looking for a good mechanical pencil to match my favorite PaperMate pen when I ran across the T2300. I love the black, fine point pen (before switching to the PaperMate, I was a die-hard Pilot BP-S user). I like the mech pencil, and the stylus is quite smooth (easily smoother than my Visor's). Bought it on impulse for $25. However, prospects for finding refills for the pen are dicey so far - none of the biggies (staples, OD, OMax) show them on their sites. It could have been better if the grip section had been either slightly rubberized or perhaps cross-hatched for better grip. But "having it all" in one place makes up for the shortcomings.

Terrific combination
Does everything I need in one convenient package. The main problem I have is keeping it out of others hands and in mine so that I don't lose it.

Handy combination
I've had a 2+1 for several months now, and am very hapy with it. Unlike several othr reviewers, I've had no problem with broken leads, but that may be because I'm used to 0.5mm lead pencils. My only minor niggle would be with the selector mechanism, which can sometimes get stuck between two tools, equiing you to select the third tol in order to get them to release.

Good but pricy all-purpose stylus
I don't like the tiny built-in stylus, so I wanted a pen-sized version. To be honest, I only got the 2+1 because I couldn't find the cheaper STYLUS+ 4-way in local stores. However, now that I have the 2+1 I really like it. Aside from one or two jams, I haven't had any problems, and the stylus tip works very well. I'm satisfied.

"I fall to pieces"
I've used mine for about 10 months now and was concerned about the eraser cover and bottom half working loose. I've had both parts separate mysteriously only to find them in the center console of my Expedition. Well, now I've lost the eraser cover. Yes it still works, but it's very annoying. I won't be buying another.

Nice Size and Weight
I couldn't live with the standard stylus (I guess my hands are too big). This pen is the best. I will second the previous unscrewing comment, though. I'm going to try a dab of removable LocTite when I get done here!

Great Investment!!!!
If your going to buy a pen/stylus, might as well buy the best. Goods looks, well balanced and writes great. Yea it a little more than the others but this will outlast them all. Only complaint is that a pen refill is kinda hard to find!

A qualified endorsement
I've got the T2300 when I got my IVX. It's what I reach for when I need to do serious note-taking or have to write on my Visor for an extended period of time. It's well-weighted and is easy to write with. At $30 though, I would have expected more perfection. The pencil has been virtually useless, the lead so thin that it snaps instantly. The pen is very nice and I find myself using it more and more, but over time I've had increasing problems with "jams" between the three instruments. It hasn't been anything serious, but sometimes I have to play around with the mechanism to extend the item I'm looking for. Also, in a rush I've mistakenly opened the pen INSTEAD of the stylus! Thank goodness for screen protection! I'm not sorry I bought it, and would probably buy another, if I needed to. I'd just make sure that something hadn't come out that performed better.
