Summary: It is small enough to fit beside my laptop and computer, yet has a large enough drawing surface so pics do not suffer. It is easy to use and my Daughter (11) loves it. It works with all drawing programs I have downloaded from the web (RealWorld Paint is very good). For just learning, the 1024 sensitive pressure pen is more than overkill, even though true professionals would want the higher levels.. then again, they would not be buying this tablet either.
Summary: I purchased this tablet as a present for my daughter. I wanted one that came with a program to use it so she could get used to it and learn before buying her a more expensive tablet. The tablet itself has performed well but the Corel disk that came with the tablet was supposed to work on Windows XP, 7, or 8. It would only install on our laptop with Windows 8 and my daughter's laptop has windows 7 on it. So disappointed with the software that came with it.
Summary: This is my first experience using a graphical tablet as an input device. I was looking for something that is cheap (cheaper than the standard stuff they sell at local electronics store) and reliable. This tablet have met my expectations. It was difficult to use at first since I've never used such device before, but after a few days of practice I can consider myself an expert.
