Summary: I got this device for Christmas one year. Once you get used to the fact that you are looking up at the screen and drawing elsewhere (i.e. it's not like drawing on paper where you see the lines under your pen), it feels very natural. The device is very solid. I use this mostly for editing photos. With a mouse my hand cramps up, but with the pen I can work for hours. The only thing I don't like is the fact that the pen needs a AAA battery to operate.
Pros: Good Control, Increased Productivity, Lightweight, Natural Feel
Summary: Beware that the drivers contained on the install disk, and on the adesso website are outdated. After countless hours of searching I discovered that the drivers for the "HyperPen 5000" found at aiptek.com, work perfectly. I have tested the pressure function in Photoshop CS3, Mudbox, and Zbrush- and haven't run into any problems so far.
Summary: I bought this tablet for a specific job without reading the reviews here first. I'm on a Mac, and at first couldn't get the tablet to be recognized, and all the software that comes with it is for Windows, so I went to the site and downloaded the available driver. Everything almost worked, except that it would take a full 3-4 minutes or more for Photoshop to process even the simplest of lines drawn with the pen, but not with either the tablet mouse or my trackball.
Summary: This is the first tablet I've ever tried, so I can't compare it to the big guys like Wacom, but so far it works great for what I'm doing. Installation was as it should be with any USB device, and I didn't have any hiccups. It functions perfectly in Paint Shop Pro, and so-so in Xara X (haven't gotten it to recognize pressure sensitivity, but I'm not sure if it's the tablet or the app).
Summary: The pen and tablet work fine...they could leave out the $2.00 mouse. The tabs on the pen(R&L click) are very awkward to use so far. Take some time to play with your settings...at first I hated the response but now it's OK and will be more useful with practice. The software is lightweight and poorly supported. I chose this over the $250 Wacom cause I'm not yet a pro and don't need the best or most expensive..
Summary: I was thrilled when I received my adesso cyber tablet, it was so easy to use. I do a lot of editing of digital photos and it was such a pain to do this with a mouse!!! Within minutes I was up & running ready to work. I also like the idea of being able to use my signature & personal handwritting in my emails. great product, highly recommend.
Summary: It's my first experience with this tablets... the product is well when work... because sometimes it doesn't work.... I don't know if my configuration is bad. When I plug the tablet, it doesn't work inmediatly. After 5 minutes aprox. it's work, but if I place out of the table the pen.. I try again, but no work... I need to wait 5 minutes aprox and I can to work again...
