Summary: If you have never used a drawing tablet before, start with this one, and see if you REALLY need an Intuos. They look nice, but unless you are a PROFESSIONAL DIGITAL ARTIST, you dont need an Intuos.
Pros: CHEAP, easy to install. And YES, it supports Vista x64 and 7 x64, some people just don't know how to find drivers. Good sesitivity, works great with Photoshop CS4 and Illustrator. In fact, you dont even need drivers, Vista and 7 recognized it.
Cons: It doesn't have the touchwheel the Intuos has. I have an Intuos at work and the only difference is the buttons on the left panel.
Summary: I'm good with computers and my customers who are less confident seem to have more problems.
Pros: Low Cost. I was able to find and download a driver for my new Vista operating system, but not sure where I found that. Pen works fine, though.
Cons: I have recommended it to others and they have had trouble where I have not. Sometimes takes a minute to get it to turn on. If I were a graphic artist, it might not be accurate enough, not sure. I'm a teacher and use this over the internet for distance learning with smaller kids.
Summary: I would be completely satisfied with it if the pen weren't so poorly thought out. You get what you pay for, I guess. Still, for testing the water and seeing if I would enjoy having a more expensive tablet, it's okay.
Pros: It's cheap.
Cons: The pen is terrible. It shuts itself off to save battery power after about 30 seconds without sufficient activity. Apparently, I don't draw hard enough to warrant sufficient activity, because it keeps shutting off in the middle of drawing a line. And even if that weren't a problem, I'll be naviga...
Summary: There were many similar drawing tablets on the market; but this appeared to perform no less well than others but was cheaper. I haven't used it much, since for most purposes I am used to a mouse and found it easier to use except when drawing.
Summary: helped me completely with its use. its usages was for art, and its compatibility and easy function made my experience and duties successful. swift, and though cheap has an expensive feel to its features.
