love it but....
27 September 2012
Summary: USE: I've had it for 10months, use it about one week a month with many many hours each time, use it for mostly drawing and projects, problems started after about 2 months, and I have no other tablet I'm comparing it to. EXPLINATION: Okay, I REALLY hate writing this review, because I absolutely love using my tablet! But, I would have liked to know before I got it how... cheap(?) it is. It works perfectly when it works!
Summary: I have purchased the Bamboo Special Edition S a week ago. The tablet works very nicely with fingers and pen, it is well made and has a very worthy touch and look to it. Installation of the driver was very easy and straight forward, and there comes a very nice learning program with it introducing all the key features.
Summary: As a traditional pen tablet I have no complaints. Seems like it has above average sensitivity to pen touch when compared to other (older) Wacom tablets I've used. But part of the reason I got this was the idea that I might use it as much as a giant touch pad as I would a pen. Unfortunately when compared to the experience I have with the touch pad on my Apple laptop (Macbook Pro), this tablet falls very short.
Good product but tablet pen already malfunctioning

Summary: just purchased this for my daughter - an arts student, and the tablet pen is already malfunctioning and it is not covered under the warranty. Dissapointed! I think the entire product should be covered, especially since the item was just purchased.
Summary: I've owned a pen-only Wacom tablet before and I think they make good products, but if you get this one you should be aware of several points that I didn't figure out until I started using this one, although, to be fair, there were indications to some problems on the web, I just sort of flaked in my research.
Summary: Product condition: I just received this product last night and as soon as i opened the package i was shocked. Out of the box, the tablet itself was scratched, also, it had palm-prints all over it. It didn't look like something new at all except for the cds, boxes, pen and mouse. I was concerned that it wouldn't work properly and i would have to suffer the trouble of returning it and wait for a new one.
Summary: I've never used this type of device before so this was a fun experience yet frustrating at the same time. I rated this a 3 stars (a good buy vs a great[4 stars] or must have buy[5 stars]). Pro's: 1) Packaging and product are attractive and modern. Kudos to the marketing team 2) Installation was a snap. Plug in the USB cable, run the software driver installer and you're all set between 5-7 minutes for the main unit. The additional software takes a bit longer.
Summary: At least for me this product wasn't the panacea I was hoping for. And maybe it's not fair that I only awarded 3 stars to the product since pure graphic manipulation was my intended use. The problem is that between reading reviews and ordering the product and actually using it I had ambitions that this tablet would replace the mouse completely -- and it can't.
Tablet ok but software bundle missing Photoshop Elements 11

Summary: The Bamboo graphics tablet was sold with three items of software that came as downloads with serial numbers supplied by email. I managed to download two of the items of software successfully but the third, Adobe Photoshops Element 11, has not downloaded. The email containing the serial key to validate the software states that the download is only valid until 02.48 on 7th October (in a few hours time). I have emailed both Wacom and Adobe but have received no replies.
Summary: We bought this as we wanted an affordable entry level graphics tablet. After looking at different models, we decided upon this one as it came with a software package that we also wanted; artrage 4. When the item arrived it was in a box marked up as the bamboo create, with a sticker over the barcode saying bamboo fun. After a quick google we discovered that it is the same model, but the 'create' is the american name for the UK's 'fun' range.
