nice started tablet

Anonymous, Newegg
22 November 2011
  • Summary: i like this
  • Pros: This starter tablet is almost exactly what i was looking for in a tablet. Just to kind of find something cheap that I could try out doing concept art with. It works well enough for a beginner but if I could I'd of waited another month or so and just gotten the cheapest bamboo tablet
  • Cons: none seems to work fine without anything going wrong so far

Junk for a digital artist

Courtney Buck, Amazon
4 October 2011
  • Summary: This thing is crap, especially if you are an artist and working on a laptop. I have no idea how to make it work, and I've scoured the internet (a disclaimer; it may not work well with my computer or my OS).

Good overall for price

Cynthia B., Newegg

  • Summary: If using Win7, this is a great inexpensive device that works well with several programs. Didn't try programming any of the hot buttons ... got so mad it wouldn't work with GIMP I gave it to my daughter, so as soon as I upgrade to Win7, I will buy another :)
  • Pros: Very thin and light, works great with Paint, very responsive.
  • Cons: WILL NOT work with GIMP on my WinXP SP3, nor will it even let me change any settings, even when using latest drivers from website, spent MANY hours scouring through blogs for tips on making it work with GIMP/XP with no results, so if you are using Win XP, don't buy this product if you need to use...

First empressions

  • Summary: Ok guys so I got this to check out tablet mouses. And came across this one. I was a bit cautious of this one because of some reviews. I checked Youtube for some demos and I found none. So I figured for the price its worth the risk.

Overall a great value

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: I actually bought this for my 11 year old daughter. She loves to draw, so I got her Paint Shop Pro, and this tablet for her laptop. There is a bit of a learning curve, so we went over the .pdf file that was installed with the drivers and software and setup the pen for the way she wanted to use it.
  • Pros: Installation was super easy, nice sturdy surface to work with, the pen has a bit of a learning curve, but that was expected. It performs quite well for what it is being used for. Using it with Corel Paint Shop Pro
  • Cons: As others have said, USB cord is too short, mouse is pretty useless.

Orphen Dreamz, Amazon

  • Summary: I wanted to buy something for my fiancee which is a digital artist and never had a tablet in her life, but I decided to go with the Genius G-Pen 4500 4-by-5.5 Inch Tablet which comes with a mouse and pen. We was both nervous about it.

Best Christmas gift EVER

Nancy, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this as a gift for my budding artist teen daughter. She has absolutely loved it, and her artwork is beautiful. It is a great way for her to share her art with her grandparents as well (who live out of town). I would highly recommend this to be purchased for the "teen who has everything".

Good Product for the Price

Virginia, Amazon
3 January 2011
  • Summary: The product works like it should! Only gripe I have about it is that I have not been able to figure out how to adjust the sensitivity on the tablet. It is way too sensitive and I occasionally have to backtrack on my lineart in Photoshop because of a sudden "runaway" line.

Pen is defective

John J. Cooper, Amazon
27 December 2010
  • Summary: The pen that is necessary for the tablet to work is too small to use the included batteries. When you try to replace the pen exterior after installing the battery following the instructions (they just give pictures), the covering is so tight that the pen does not close all of the way.
