Husband loves it

Summary: I bought this for my husband for our first Christmas together and he still uses and loves it 6 years later. The only reason I've given it 4 stars is due to having to replace the pen after it broke. Luckily, it did last for over 4 years and the replacement was reasonably priced on here. Of course he wants the bigger tablet now, but this one works just fine for his comic strips.
Summary: Absolutely wonderful, saved money buying refurbished, and it has a big surface. Comes with great software. Only complaint, if you want super detail, you might not get it, the tip is a bit wobbly. But i wouldnt sell mine to anyone, very happy.
Summary: If you don't mind drawing on a postcard sized area then this is for you. It works well with all the editors you can think of, and comes with a mouse so you don't have to switch back and forth all the time.
Summary: I should say that I don't do much illustration anymore but I've grown accustomed to using a tablet as opposed to a mouse. So, that's mainly what I use this for on a daily basis. It's a nice size, is responsive and I've been pretty happy with it.
Summary: I like this product. I got it for a friend and decided to give it a go before giving it back to her. I am no pro when reviewing this product. However, I was actually expecting something smaller but the size is reasonable good. I'm a right hand person and found it comfortable to use. I like the touch screen option when your not using it to draw to navigate the compute instead of an mouse.
Summary: It came like new and with all its parts, but I would have appreciated at least one replacement nib... Also my Corel Painter Essentials always seems to be "Not Responding" :( I heard others have this problem but my sisters Wacom Bamboo Craft has the nibs and is responding.
Summary: i did not know that this pen tablet didn't have pen angle sensitivity. i didn't really know how to look for that specific quality. it's kind of a bummer but it's not that big of a deal for me because i'm just an architect trying to make some sketches directly on to my computer so that i don't have to constantly scan and print and scan and print. this is great for the price and the quality is nice. the texture you feel when writing on it with the pen is super satisfying.
Summary: At time of this writing this product is at unbelievable price ~ $120, I'm rating five stars just based on the value. However, I'm subtracting one of those stars for the noticeably rough active surface, which you sense as an annoying drag upon the pen tip as you draw. In the end, decided I could live with the over-rough surface, but ONLY because of the low cost; had this product cost me $200 I would have returned it immediately over this issue.
Summary: This is my first tablet. Let me say, it exceeded my expectations in performance. However, it is limited in functionality, no macro control for example. You can change what the four buttons on the tablet do; make them keystrokes or other controls. But lets say I want to use one button for the space bar, for pan in Photoshop (I like the pen buttons to be brush size increase and decrease).
