Ultimately worthless

Anonymous, Newegg
16 January 2013
  • Summary: Will be contacting Genius to see if they will send me another.
  • Pros: Very little money compared to WACOM or other professional tablets. In the end, you always get what you pay for.
  • Cons: Whatever pros there are to buying this tablet are ultimately dwarfed by the outcome: It breaks and there's no fixing it. No I didn't spill anything on it or drop it. It was cared for and used daily. If daily use is the cause of it's malfunction, that's unacceptable. I've researched as to possible...

Crashed and Burned

Douglas B., Newegg
5 October 2011
  • Pros: Looked nice
  • Cons: I never got to use it. After installing the tablet and attempting to restart my computer, per the instructions, I was unable to reboot my computer. I contacted Dell tech support, and we were not even able to login via safemode. My computer had to be wiped and reprogrammed. I lost over $50 in ship...

Not Impressed

Garrett S. Clem "Bobcat", Amazon
12 July 2011
  • Summary: I'm an optimist so I'll start off with the, very little, good. As always Amazon shipped the item and it came in a timely manor. It arrived before estimated and was well packaged. Alright, now for the not so good. First of all, I am NOT a Photoshop artist.

Junk

tom d., Newegg
23 June 2011
  • Summary: I bought this for an artist to use with their new Mac. The thing is worthless whatever your platform. It collects dust now, that's a wasted 100 bones.
  • Pros: Nice packaging. Came with some decent software.
  • Cons: Poor pen functionality. Poor build quality.

Not for OSX

Kevin S., Newegg
26 April 2011
  • Summary: You get what you pay for. I thought this was a great deal but obviously NewEgg just trying to offload an outdated lowend tablet.
  • Pros: Nothing
  • Cons: Cheap feel, not compatible with OSX 10.6. It requires Rosetta and installation of a bunch of system extensions that your system will complain about when running system update. It will also run the pen application at startup by default and lock up if you try to kill it. Have to mess with the cable...

Hog wash

Alexander N, Amazon
29 December 2010
  • Summary: Does not work with Mac. There is nothing else to be said. Does not work with MacBook Pro Does not work with Photoshop on Mac it just does not work. I am rumbling to get 20 characters in to save this review, but it still does not change the fact that this crap does not work.

Mislead by positive reviews

gabriel t., Newegg
22 October 2010
  • Summary: never again... I'll shell out the extra cash on a brand name - Wacom - I'll save up for the cintiq and call it a day. Man this was such a bad buy.
  • Pros: Large format for my wide screen
  • Cons: Feel like I have to stab and carve the hide of a warrior manatee's backside just to get a good sketch drawn in photoshop. Someone said it felt like a ball point pen when using it - WRONG - ball point pens are so much smoother than this atrocity ugh the price for failure burns!

nonfunctional

Geoffrey F., Newegg
29 December 2009
  • Summary: Based on my experience I would not recommend this model, nor anything this company makes.
  • Pros: cheap
  • Cons: This product did not work well at all, ever. The stylus never flowed smoothly over the screen, no matter how many times I made adjustments, updated drivers, or replaced stylus batteries. Unfortunately I made this discovery after the 30 day period, so wasted $65 (it was on sale).

not for OS X (at least not 10.6)

Eric C., Newegg
7 December 2009
  • Summary: i contacted newegg (via online chat) to complain. without absolutely zero hesitation the rep issued me a full refund with no restocking fee, and promptly sent me a UPS mailing label.
  • Pros: - looks nice & seems well made - perhaps it works well on windows, i don't know
  • Cons: - bundled driver wouldn't install on snow leopard; it kept cycling through the last page of the install wizard - so i downloaded the driver from mftr; at least it installed. - the driver was bizarre. maybe i overrate my tech know-how but jeepers. i couldn't figure out how to do anything other tha...
