Rated 5 out of 5 byMatt19 from Very responsive pen - a must for your ThinkPadI haven't owned any other digital pens prior to this, but I can say that the screen on my ThinkPad is very responsive to this pen; it provides a very smooth writing experience and is very comfortable in your hand. I'd compare it to a Pilot Fine Tip Ink Pen. Although there could be more flexibility in programming the barrel buttons, they serve their purpose and are easy to use without stopping what you're doing, whether writing, sketching, etc. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 bycowana from Does everything it should.I used a Surface machine before this, specifically for the pen input. This pen input (with Yoga Thinkpad X1) is just as good (I'm not qualified to know the intricacies of how it might be better). It writes well, and I don't notice any issues. Very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 byBweeks from Works great, but I struggle to find ways to use itThis pen works great! It responds to the different pressure that you use and it has a good feeling when drawing on the screen - like using a marker. I have mostly used it for doodling in Windows Ink and OneNote; I am still looking for ways to use it in everyday work without it feeling forced. I am going to use it for drawing workflows and capturing notes during meetings, but I still haven't been able to do that without feeling like I am awkwardly forcing the utility of the pen.I truly enjoy using the pen as it works really well, but I am struggling to find productive ways to use it in my everyday life.

Rated 5 out of 5 byAravindG from It writes - but bluetooth connectivity is suspectBought it to go with my Lenovo 720 Yoga Convertible laptop. It could connect using bluetooth only once. The Bluetooth module stopped working after that. I still can draw with it, but the integration with Windows OS is not fully functional.

Rated 5 out of 5 byTabitha from Great for sketchingLove this Pen! It feels really nice when sketching, and being able to adjust the sensitivity is great. I really appreciate the extra nibs that came with it. I really wish they would great an accessory pack that could be purchased as an add on option with different types of nibs. However, my single issue with this item is the mounting for storage feature. The collar fits over the pen and then inserts into a usb port. It doesn't fit 100% into the port, and it feels super flimsy and insecure. I do not use this feature because I am concerned the pen will be knocked out, and potentially cause damage to the port. I have a laptop bag that I keep it in when I am not using it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 byGingerH from Easy to use and good, but room for improvement.First off, their shipping on this is incredibly slow. Came weeks after the laptop. But that's not the pen's fault. Regarding the pen itself, the weight and feel are good. Nicely balanced. The buttons have good feedback. I'm using a Yoga 730 and it was ridiculously easy to pair with the laptop. Lenovo has its own settings program that can customize the buttons decently and set sensitivity levels. It has a Wacom driver but don't bother with the Wacom pen software. They don't actually use it in favor of their Lenovo Pen settings app. You never really use 4,000 levels of sensitivity as a human, so once you setup your art software and get your sensitivity calibrated, it works well for sketching and painting. The draw vs screen response is fantastic. No lag! So it's got a lot of good strong points. The reason for the 3 stars? Tilt support. This supposedly has tilt support and even has tilt sensitivity settings you can setup. I've tried updating or reinstalling drivers. Trying various different digital art tools. But I cannot get any program anywhere to recognize its tilt. We know the previous Active Pen 1 did not have tilt support and were anxiously awaiting this one for it. But nope... despite claims and settings, still no tilt support that I can see.

Rated 5 out of 5 byNexy from Perfect digital art rig, pen durability needs workThis laptop blew my expectations away. Screen color is absolutely vivid, and great for creating vibrant work. Needs minor calibration to make colors in my digital work look nice without looking overly saturated, but they're otherwise incredibly vibrant and show up nicely on my smartphone and other friends' devices. The 1050 graphics card is also great at rendering visuals-light games as well - Forza Horizon 3 quickly overloaded the video memory, but my favorite Steam games (BeamNG.drive, Rocket League, Ori and The Blind Forest, Transistor) without issue at all. My design programs (CLIP Studio Paint and Adobe Creative Cloud) run extremely smoothly on this laptop as well, with zero input lag and no struggling, even with massive canvases with high pixel densities.My included Active Pen's life was a little short lived, however - after 4 days of work, I believe I messed up its pressure sensitivity with my heavy handed pressure, and I felt something give inside the pen. It has difficulty picking up very lights strokes accurately now, so my pointy line style doesn't look as sharp as it could be (no pun intended). I tried a friend's Surface Pen to confirm if my pen's pressure sensitivity went funky, and I can pretty much say my Active Pen no longer works for extremely light or thin strokes. I may pick up a new pen to replace it and practice using a lighter hand for heavier strokes with adjusted pressure sensitivity, as I really like how the Active Pen felt when I made my first digital work with this laptop.OTHERWISE, the Yoga 720 is an incredible design rig, and Windows Ink and Wacom Feel truly make it a force to be reckoned with as a graphic artist's workhorse. Even some of my art friends love the way the pen felt on the screen, even with the broken pressure sensitivity. My only gripe is that the Active Pen is just not durable enough for heavy-handed people like me.

Rated 5 out of 5 byAlexandra L from Great penThe Lenovo Active Pen 2 came with my Yoga 920 but I unfortunately lost it recently. Instead of purchasing a different pen, I decided to stick with the Active Pen 2 for several reasons. Aesthetic-wise, it is a very sleek device and feels nice and heavy in my hand. One of them being its affordability compared to other bluetooth tablet pens. Another reason was that I liked how the hard rubber tip felt on the screen, making the writing experience more comfortable and my handwriting glide easier than using a flimsy rubber stylus. My only qualm is that the batteries for the bluetooth part died pretty quickly, so I'll have to replace those. Not only that, but AAAA batteries are not as easily accessible to purchase in person so I have to order those online. Otherwise, I don't see myself having a need to move on from the Active Pen 2 for a long time. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 byEjacobsen808 from Still getting the hang of it.I’m still getting the hang of the pen. I love the Yoga laptop/tablet but wish it had been included as a bundle because separate shipping and ordering made the buying experience more cumbersome. The buttons and shortcuts are a little bit involved and the sync button (click top) is easy to press on accident, at least for my meaty hands. A simple stylus would probably be sufficient for me but I suspect the added features (connect, disconnect, draw/click and erase) do add some value. It is just not always obvious to me when it stops working that I have disabled it by accident. Given that, I can’t really review performance or reliability because I can’t tell when it is user error or the device. From a software perspective I would like to see some optional on-screen and audio feedback indicating the connection state of the pen / action button selected. There is a small (pinhole) blue light on the pen itself but it’s a little hard to see and therefore less useful - at least in bright ambient light or for someone’s who’s vision isn’t what it once was. If the onscreen feedback exists it has eluded me. All that said, it looks nice and helps with drawing, especially when you have large fingers that make fine detail more difficult, and reduces the need to clean the screen. The USB port mounted holder is a nice option to have but I also keep hitting the buttons on the pen when using it because either way you are sliding the pen into the collar that holds it. Now that I bought the sleeve I just use the pen-holder included in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 byKelby from Great tablet/2-in-1 stylusI love this little helper. This pen has your right and left click at t hi umb level. If you use a compatible laptop 2-in-1 or tablet, this is great. I used a couple other stylus previously, they were all fairly fat and broked down rubber nibs quickly. This nib is a bit thicker and a lot thinner, which makes some finer detail a lot easier. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
