A bit more than used...

Summary: This came to me in a raggedy retaped box and not labeled in any way from the vendor. As I opened it it was not packaged properly and (possibly due to this) had scratches & a significant scuff on one side. It came with CD copies of the drivers & installation. The pen was tossed in loose, and had an odd mark on one side. I started rubbing the 'permanent' marker off and felt the back half was loose (felt and sounded more 'rattley' than pens I had used in the past).
Summary: My ad shop has three 13-year old Wacom tablets including two Intuos GDs. We remain delighted with their features, configuration, sensitivity and, obviously, their durability. However, the most current driver is not compatible with our Snow Leopard mid-2010 8-core Mac Pro, although it works fine with our Tiger G5 and G4s.
Summary: I have used Wacom tablets for several years, and have found them to be excellent in almost every respect. I bought the pen and touch tablet to explore the advantages, if any, that the touch interface would provide. I have returned to my old Bamboo. There are several problems that make the new tablet hard for me to use, and not just in the touch area. The most obvious problem is the pen.
Summary: I thought this would be good for making notes/ hand drawings - after first couple of times, I have to say this is pretty crude and I find using my mouse better than using bamboo - perhaps more practice is needed .. or perhaps the drawing pad on this products needs a bettter smooth surface -- too rough and crude .. On the plus side my 6 year old found a good use of this as a toy to play with for drawing using windows paintbrush app.

Summary: I have lenovo x200 tablet pc and just got my bamboo tablet. After I had the bamboo installed, my touch screen stoped working. The tablet pen came with the lenovo pc also stopped working. If you want to use both at the same time, this product is perhaps not for you. I am trying to figure out the way to make both of them work together. But as for now, I am quite disappointed.
Summary: I have previously had two other wacom tablets, a graphire and a intuos. I do a lot of photoshop work and i have come to really depend on wacom tablets, so, when my old tablet bit the dust i decide to give this one a try. I had very little interest in the touch feature and thank god for that because it's not even up to trackpad standards. There are a few things about it that are cool, but it's just too fickle to use on a daily basis.

Summary: As an artist who does more digital coloring than 'traditional', I make a fair amount of use of both this and my 'regular' Wacom tablet, depending where I am. However it's been my experience that the ONLY thing the Bamboo does is make me miss my bigger, harder to transport tablet. The drawing screen is rough and the tablet itself is obnoxiously poor in response, creating ragged, crooked lines when my larger one draws smoothly.
