    Got my pen from the last deal and they're really good that I couldn't resist getting another at this price, thanks Hamza.

    Just looked at the previous threads for this pen and the takeaway feeling is that the pens are not that good that they are being made out to be !
    Underwhelming … wet ink which smudges….heavy pen.. << some keywords from previous deals' comments
    I'll pass this one …

      There's nothing special about them. They aren't smooth. In addition to the issues you've listed, they feel like a fine point pen. There's a lot of friction or resistance when writing with it, like the pen tip is too sharp as opposed to smooth.

      Seriously I like the feel of both ball point and roller ball better than Mijia.

      If there was something special or unique about the ink, I'd be able to forgive its shortcomings but there seriously isn't. On glossier paper, it doesn't even come out even. It looks 'hollow' in the center of your strokes. It smudges even when it looks dry. With a roller ball, it stays wet longer but at least you can see it dry, and when it looks dry it won't smudge. This thing when it looks dry (I wait 10 secs before testing it) it still smudges.

      If you're a lefty, I wouldn't even bother.

      At this price though, there's no harm in giving it a try just to see for yourself first hand what they do. It's no more expensive than a pen at a newsagent. But the Xiaomi name on it gave expectations that it doesn't meet.

      I was probably one of those people, the write up makes it sound amazing, I were expecting something really good and while it is a good pen I wouldn't call it anywhere near amazing, but as it is only $1.70ish shipped It still good value

      Order one and you have something to look forward to as you daily check your letter box and complain about slow delivery …..over the next 4-6 weeks ……. and if you cant wait that long guess there is officeworks and get a pilot G2 …. and you can take it back if its faulty.

        as you daily check your letter box and complain about slow delivery

        So many times I have forgotten about cheap $1-$2 items from China and when they (always) turn up, its a surprise as if someone else ordered it for me, lol

        officeworks

        Currently using the Pilot Evolt from there …..3-in-1, as I need a black, red and pencil for work

    Best pen i've ever used, takes around 1-2 seconds for ink to dry. Only issue is how little ink it has - ran out after half a month of daily writing.

    •  

      That's not my experience, but I'm glad you like them.

      I wish the Japanese could figure out how to make blue ink.

      •  

        Currently using the Uni Power Tank and it has a very nice blue ink.

      •  

        The Japanese make plenty of good blue inks. If anything, it's Xiaomi's fault for not adding blue ink to their ecosystem.

        •  

          Xiaomi doesn't make them. They outsourced the ink to Japan and the pen to Switzerland. Japan is only making black for this pen.

        Yeah writing is pretty subjective, the sharper pen tip is what I like the most about it, I prefer the control you get from the resistance.

    Ordered last time and never arrived (same as a lot of other people.)

    I bought these pens from this deal https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/290716

    Got these arrived from the last deal just yesterday. Not as smooth as I had expected. Cool Design though.
    Guess I will stick to my Lamy pen for now.

    The tip is sharper than expected. The pen digs into the paper instead of gliding smoothly over it.

    •  

      It's like a fine point pen. If you're used to medium, you won't like the feel of it.

    Its a pretty good pen, but a bit too thin for my liking… I go for the fatties.

    My Xiaomi collection is getting dangerously too big. And it looks like a new version of the pen is coming out… Xiaomi 0.5mm Sign Pen.

  •  

    Now I'm getting code expired for the PenS as well. Guess I'll just wait for a deal on the new version Clear linked to.

  •  

    yessss i FINALLY got one !! my whole life i have been trying to get a deal on one of these lil cuties but i've always been too slow ! Finally my life is complete !

    I got the pen from the last deal. It write smoothly with nice black ink. However, I dont really like the weight of the pen. It feels "back heavy". Maybe im more of a cheap office works pen rather than a Mont Blanc kinda person.

  •  

    Guess they need to wait for apple to design the "Ipen" so they can copy it.

    Was tempted but then realised I've never actually bought a pen so why start now.

    •  

      Just pinch them from work.

      •  

        Sure, some of them yeah. I like to think of it as free off site storage though.

        Others are freebee promo pens etc, but a lot just turn up without any explanation. weird.

  •  

    Received mine today from last deal . Agree that the pen is heavy to use. Looks like a cigarette . It's an ok pen but not sure why its rated so highly

  •  

    Xiaomi is becoming like Apple since they can even market a normal looking pen to the tech crowd…

    • +3 votes

      Well what can you say for $1.73?

      If Apple sold a pen it would at least be $30 and all refills would have to be certified and delivered through the lightning port.
