Horrible

S. Goshop, Amazon
13 March 2013
  • Summary: Got it as a gift through a gift card. I wanted a tablet and did not have the money for a wacom. This product worked well for about a week before it started glitching, replacing the batteries in the pen did not solve this, nor did reinstalling the drivers. Eventually it stopped working all together. One thing I will not detract is the cognitive dissonance from not being able to see what you are drawing on.

  • Summary: Amazing. I love this product. Takes a while to get used to, but def a great product. Also, kinda stinks that the pen needs batteries, but hey, i didnt buy a top of the line product. Still great for the price. And hubby draws anime on it.

skittish handling & no Mac drivers after OS X 10.4

Lincoln Berkley "cybernomad", Amazon
14 September 2011
  • Summary: I use this tablet to write Chinese characters. Writing them works in Windows 7 Ultimate, after a fashion. So does optical character recognition, after download and installation of the Simplified Chinese Language Pack from the Windows Update Website. However, the handling of the stylus is skittish: it's difficult to draw a straight line or a smooth curve. Yes, I *am* holding the stylus as if it were a Chinese ink brush, but holding it as if it were a pen does not help.

Great Basic Product

A. Torres "Samuel T", Amazon
15 March 2011
  • Summary: This, too was my first pen tablet. It was random gift, and so I have no right to speak about pricing. I have a (last-year's) Macbook Pro running Snow Leopard and the drivers were compatible. Meaning, it works fine with a Mac. I'll be bold to assume it works with any current Mac, since mine is the newest [Get ready for Lion, people].

Bad quality

h.m, Amazon
9 September 2010
  • Summary: This was my first pen tablet. So I didn't know if this product was good or bad. It's cheap comparing with other kinds of pen tablet, so I didn't really wonder. But my mom gave me an another kind of pen tablet(which is Bamboo's pen tablet), and that quality was so high. With this pen tablet, I couldn't draw where I wanted. It was still easier than with a mouse, but as a pen tablet, it sucked. If you are buying your first pen tablet, I don't recommend this one.

Misleading product image

Moshe Feder "Aspiring Renaissance Man", Amazon
4 February 2010
  • Summary: The photo of this tablet makes it look like has a built-in LCD screen to draw on. That's a feature normally found only in very expensive tablets, and it's not reflected in the specs for this product. Someone is playing games here. Beware.

Doesn't work well with Mac

Danielle, Amazon
8 January 2010
  • Summary: I had to buy this for a class and can't install it properly on my macbook. It says it works with Mac OS 10.2.8 and above, but it doesn't. I have Leopard. The software won't install and the instruction manual only has instructions for PCs. The customer service number on the box is in Taiwan too. Don't waste time buying this; you'll only have to return it.

Gets Work Done

Hannah Pollard "Haimaru", Amazon
21 August 2009
  • Summary: Although this is one of the cheapest tablets you can get now a days, it really is good and durable. I thought with it being so cheap it would break in a couple of months. But it hasn't yet. The only thing I've had to do so far is change the battery in the pen. It's not one of your big-an-fancy type tablets. But it gets the work done.
