Anyone have a C-Pen? If so, is it worth the $30?
I have one, it's old technology. I used to use it to scan price tags for computer equipment that I sold so I didn't miss out on the commission at my store.
It's not worth $30 today in my opinion, but that all depends on what you're using it for now.

I think he's talking about the C Pen from Samsung, which is actually nothing more than a capacitive stylus with a narrow tip. It doesn't do any scanning.
As for whether the C Pen is worth the price, it all depends on if you want a capacitive stylus. By most accounts I've read/watched, it works a little better than a normal capacitive stylus since it has a smaller tip, but like a regular capacitive stylus, it still doesn't work all that well. Here's a good video review of the C Pen on the S3. As noted in the review, many people will be disappointed in the C Pen because they'll be expecting something similar to the S Pen that comes with the Galaxy Note, but there's a huge difference between the technology in the two (with the S Pen for the Note being far superior and incompatible with the S3).
If you really want to give the C Pen a try, you can find them for less than $30 in various places online. Amazon had some at around $20 last time I checked. Personally, I think if you're going to use a stylus with a phone, it needs to be very accurate, or else you'll end up being frustrated most of the time. The S Pen on the Note is incredibly accurate because of the technology used for it. But the C Pen is likely to drive you crazy quite often.
