Conclusion: This unit, like most units of it’s kind is really designed to allow the user to draw and create on the computer screen either for artistic purposes or for demonstrations during presentations. To use this aspect of the unit you have to have appropriate third party graphics software installed. Any version of Adobe Photoshop or GraphicConverter will work. I’m sure there are several others with which graphic artists are familiar.
Pros: A sturdy, well made entry-level graphics tablet that offers the options that one should expect for a tablet of this price. It is easy to install and set up and it is easy to use. The pen is sturdy and two extra pen heads are included, although if properly cared for, the pen heads have a very long life span.
Cons: The pen holder is a simple tab on the side of the unit, but anything more substantial would also mean a higher price. My only real complaint is the absence of instructions concerning how to effectively use the tablet to draw.
