Summary: Works well with my HP Pavilion DV7 & Windows 7 Ultimate. No software issues. Nice sensitivity variance also. Only one problem; but it can be avoided. Don't drop the pen; even a few inches. Not that the pen will break, but that the tip will fly out at mach 2 and you'll never see it again. Happened to me when the pen slipped from my grip. Good thing there's three tips.
Excerpt: Sometimes it takes me a few tries before the tablet responds. I’m not sure if it has to do with just certain areas of the tablet or maybe how hard I click on the tablet with my pen. For beginners like me, the Genius EasyPen i405 is enough. It’s inexpensive compared to Wacom but still does the job. Maybe when I have the budget I can upgrade to a Wacom but for now the Genius Tablet has all the basic features I need.
Summary: I LOVE this tablet I decided to order it one night on Labor Day and it came the 2nd day I was waiting, which was 3 days before the minimum arrival date. The pen does require a AAA battery but it comes with one in the box, I didn't see any hassle in inserting the battery into the pen. It also comes with easy instructions on how to install the tablet.
Summary: It is a good piece of hardware and totally worth the price. I'm currently using it to teach people across the internet maths. It does everything that is expected, and also has 'bindings'. That is; one can attach an 'action' to each of the lines around the edge of the pad. I turned this off, as it got annoying though. I can see how it would be useful, however.
