Small size is big enough for many uses.

Summary: Works great, although I haven't had a chance to put it through its paces... Useful as a mouse replacement - I've been having tendonitis from the scroll... I like this size a lot better than the extra large on I used in graphic arts classes. I've never seen the medium, so I can't say how it compares...
Summary: As I was shopping for a convertible laptop for school, I realized that being able to write things into said laptop would be immensly helpful in taking notes, doing homework, marking up papers, so on and so forth. Unfortunately, the market for laptops with active digitizers is one that isn't exactly cheap. That is where this amazing little thing comes in. For less than 60$, I was able to turn my newly purchased 350$ convertible laptop into a much more functional device.

Summary: I must admit at first I hated it. I bought it at the beginning of this year (2014) & just started using it last month (October). I thought the learning curve was too much for me but honestly I was just lazy about it lol. Watch a couple youtube or creative live videos. That's what made me decide to pull it out of the closet. I only dabble in photo editing so this cheap one is perfect for me. I am in love with it now!!
Summary: Great price on the refurbished ....this is my first drawing tablet experience....I did a whole exhibit after only a month of playing around with it...great fun! I would recommend getting the wireless kit to go with it...Unfortunately these don't have wireless technology built in....the newer models might though...so that is something to consider when budgeting because the cost of the upgrade is significant.

Summary: I had the bamboo create before this one, but the create, although smooth and never had any problems, it was too large for me. So i decided to downscale by getting this one. It was such a mistake purchasing it here. I received this in the mail with no discs but the installation, so I was missing the software for the drawing and adobe photoshop. Also, it was missing a USB cord so I could not use the tablet for two weeks after opening it and discovering the bad news.
Summary: The tablet works amazingly, but like most things, it does go on the fritz on occasion. But this is expected as I have been told by many people who have boughten their's brand new. A simple computer restart fixes the problem, though.
Summary: Shipped to me incredibly fast. Looked new when I received it. Works perfectly. I thought about getting the version above this one which is bigger, but honestly this more compact size is more than adequate and fits easier in my laptop bag. Definitely would recommend to anyone.
Summary: Excellent tablet for anyone who is interested in digital drawing. I got it for my teenaged cousin, and I expect it to serve him well for years, just like my wacom tablets have served me. Had some trouble installing the right driver, but now it works great.
Summary: Honestly, I love this tablet to death. Since I have purchased it, I have practiced with it and I am starting my journey towards becoming a full-fledged digital artist. It is a wonderful tablet for beginners and you don't have to worry about purchasing a AAA battery for the pen, since the pen integrates into the tablet without the AAA battery, which is a plus in itself.
Great tablet for YouTube videos, despite being refurbished

Summary: I'm always a bit nervous about buying refurbished products, but this tablet has exceeded my expectations. I have been using them for Khan Academy-style YouTube videos for a class that I'm teaching, and students have responded favorably. I would definitely recommend.
