    I buy computer parts off Newegg all the time. You shouldn't have a problem.

    Yes, your phone will detect it automatically & it'll work just fine.

    Other than not fitting the other device, the stock pens are functionally the same.

    That price is decent. Did you not register your phone with Samsung and get a 50% off coupon? I'd say that should be the first choice, as it'll be the cheapest you'll be able to find.

    You can use any S-pen from Note, Note 2 and Note 10.1. All S-pens will work with any model Note. They and backwards and forwards compatible. The only issue is it won't fit the slot of the device if you buy the wrong replacement.

    I have the S-pen holder (only holds the original S-pen) which I use on the Note 2 and Note 10.1. I had the Note but gave it away to a future in-law. I can still use the S-Pen with the other S-pen still housed in the device slot.

    Next time turn on the alarm that goes off when you get 4 feet from your pen. :)

    S-Pen from Note 2 has more features than Note 1.

    For the OP, Newegg.com is one of the more reputable sites on the web...for years. They have multiple shipping facilities, solid customer service and return policies, and often beat shipping sate estimates.

    I've never bought anything from Newegg myself but I know several people that have and I've never heard anything bad from them.

    Really? The only real difference (I can find) between them is the degree of pressure sensitivity and tips used between the S-Pen versions (I have all of them - Note, Note 2 and Note 10.1). It really doesn't have 'more' features (at least noticeable ones in a real practical scenario). The Note 10.1 S-Pen does have a 'grippy' feel when using it on the screen. Not the smoothness one would feel when using the Note or Note 2's S-Pens. Some prefer the 'grippy' feel as it feels more like pen on paper.

    Degree of pressure sensitivity may be important if you do sketches/drawings and need those light lines opposed to the thick heavy ones. But if note taking, you won't notice any difference between them. And having the natural feel of an actual pen is better than using any of the S-Pens on their own. But that's just me.
