Summary: While the price of this tablet is very tempting, its not a very reliable tablet. Or lemme rephrase that-- if you do not mind paying nearly $100 for a tablet just to get one good year's use out of it, go for it. If not, make your purchase elsewhere (monoprice is known to make very good tablets for cheap PLUS they have customer support with their products versus Genius does not). Which also brings me to another point, Genius's Tablets do not have customer support.
Summary: This tablet is not compatible with my computer. I have Windows 8 and it doesn't work. Non of the hot keys work and it doesn't even show a courser on my screen. I have to actually touch the pen to the tablet in order to see where the courser is and it doesn't work for drawing at all. I use my tablet for art and i can't if it doesn't work properly.
Summary: I got this tablet for Christmas a couple of years back (just now getting to write this review) and it only worked for about a month before it quit working on each side. The sensors must have worn out or something. But when it was working, you had to press too hard to make any lines, and it would often cause lines to go in odd directions.
Summary: Don't buy this. Buy a Wacom instead. Don't buy this! The programmable edges and size of the tablet are a lure. They are not worth the hassle and lack of actual functionality. The first one I bought had to be returned because it doesn't work. I've had the second one (yes, I'm a fool for not getting my money back) for a few months and it has developed dead spots. Don't buy this! It is slow and not very responsive and jumps around. Don't buy this!
The Genius software drivers break games in Windows
22 June 2012
Summary: After I installed the drivers for this tablet under Windows 7, I started having issues running games like Fallout New Vegas. It turns out I had to uninstall the tablet drivers to get my games to work again. I haven't been able to contact the manufacturer because their websites are terrible with many broken links and empty areas - when you click on "contact us" it's a blank page!
Summary: When I first got the product it was a bit scuffed and clearly used, but I'd expected to see a bit of wear on it. What I didn't expect was it to not work! The cursor moved very jerkily for the first two days or so, then it stopped working altogether. I assumed it was the pen, since I'd had a similar problem with a pen before, but getting a brand new pen for it did nothing-the sensors in the pad are completely dead.
Summary: I've owned this product for about a year now and any defects are becoming apparent. the pen had overcharged once and exploded the battery (i use it at least once a day so i dont take the battery out) and ever since ive been forced to keep my fingers on ctrl+z because of streaking that occurs at random when drawing on photoshop and even gimp.
Summary: DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY (CLEER) IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE RIPPED OFF I ORDER SOMETHING FROM THEM IT NEVER GET TO ME AND WHEN I GET THEM A BAD REVIEW I WAS CALL A NUT AND TOLD TO GET A LIFE I FILE THE A TO Z FROM AMAZON AND WILL BE GETTING MY MONEY BY THANK YOU AMAZON AND I WILL GLADLY BE BUYING MORE STUFF FROM YOU I GET HELPED OUT AND I AM VERY VERY HAPPY WITH AMAZON
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. I do work with 3D applications, such as 3Ds Max and I figured a tablet might speed up my work flow. Taking it out of the box it seemed decent. It is pretty thin and large.
