The Griffin iPad stylus is essentially identical to the Boxwave stylus. The only noticeable difference is the clip on the Griffin, which is a bit heavier, and feels more sturdy. Whether or not they are actually the same, the similarity is a good thing. As I noted in my in-depth review of the Boxwave, it is a “solid, durable stylus for a great price.” So is the Griffin.
The Griffin iPad stylus is currently just over $11 on Amazon. That’s a few bucks more than the Boxwave, but I think the clip of the Griffin is better-looking enough that I wouldn’t mind the extra cost. Then again, I’m picky about writing utensils. If you want a lanyard to plug your stylus into your tablet’s microphone jack, get the Boxwave. If you plan to keep your stylus in a bag or pocket, get the Griffin.
Otherwise, my review of the Boxwave applies equally to the Griffin. It is a huge improvement on trying to take notes or draw with a finger, and it should last you a good, long time.
