Summary: I've been wanting to replace my Graphire for the better part of a decade and the common recommended replacement was the Bamboo. After so many years of service, the Graphire finally went kaput and so I decided it was time to get a Bamboo. I'm so glad I did. At first my impression of the tablet wasn't excitement, for the movement of the pen felt sort of clunky, but then I hopped into the included software and saw just how outstanding a tablet I purchased.
Summary: Maybe I did not understand what to expect. I find using a mouse as a stylus easier although the writing is clumsy. I wanted to mark up Math problems to show how to solve them. The Bamboo Capture Pen and Tablet was more difficult for me to use since you look at a screen and write on the tablet. I prefer to write directly on an image while I am looking at it.
Summary: I love this thing! It was just delivered last night and I haven't been able to stop using it! It's remarkably easy to use. I've never used a tablet before, so I was sure it would take a lot of getting used to, but in ten minutes I could use it well enough to produce a sketch as good as I could have done in my paper sketchbook with my favorite pencil!
Summary: Works great. The model number is to old to get the "free" drawing programs that the description states it comes with. After working with Wacom (not the seller) We were able to get a different drawing program. My daughter loves this. Very easy to use.
Summary: This is a great product for beginners. The software is outdated though, so you need to download the updated software from wacom's website. Just be careful with the cords, they can break kind of easily. Take good care of it abd you'll be fine.
Summary: I bought this pen tablet to replace my Asus Vivotab 8. To be honest, I was quite disappointed with it in the beginning. But, as time passed by, it's turning out to be a well worth investment. However, I didn't simply just practice to get the most out of this impressive little tool, I did a few minutes of research to accommodate my needs better, which are as follows. i) I use this tablet to primarily as a note taking device on a dual monitor PC.
