Summary: I am a graphic designer and often wished I had a smaller portable unit I could take on trips with me. I was very happy to discover this unit is more than capable of achieving most of my needs and is more than I expected it would be. I would recommend this to anyone. Ideal for first time users and professionals. Will never be as good as a full size, $6000 professional unit but brilliant for what it costs.
Summary: I am not a graphic designer and I do not own a fancy tablet, but I can tell a crumy product. I bought this for my twelve year old son and this tablet is not very user friendly nor is not very sensitive. I ended up buying Genius MousePen 8 x 6-Inch Graphic Tablet instead at about same price. So much easier to set up (just plug it in) and so much more sensitive to the touch of the pen.
Summary: I really don't know what to say. I've been using this tablet for over 4 years, but certainly not the exact same one. I've bought this thing about 3 times, because it's cheap, and it does it's job, but... the pen. The pen is an absolute mess. It's unstable and awkward, and breaks very easily.
Summary: I feel this stylus needed more information about which Operating systems it is compatible with. I bought it for my son for Christmas to use with his iMac but this did not work with any Apple operating system and is only meant for Windows, Microsoft operating systems.
Summary: This is the first graphic tablet I have owned myself, and for the odd bit of light amateur work, it is perfect. Firstly, I am unsure if the 1* reviews are rating a different product, they all seem to complain about the pen. Yes it is cheap, but I had no issues with fitting the battery in the, admittedly, flimsy battery compartment, just be gentle. I find it works well in all the software I have tested.
