but like most things

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.
Great tablet - don't worry about it being refurbished

Summary: Great tablet - don't worry about it being refurbished, the tablet is in excellent condition. The only difference between this and a brand new tablet is that this does not have all of the programs usually included. Also, the tablet is very strong - I have had a lot of pressure placed on top of it in the form of books, my laptop and many other heavy items and it still works perfectly.
Summary: This is our second tablet by Bamboo and they both work great ! The only draw back (pun intended) is the pen because the pens break a lot ! I had to buy two replacement pens for the last tablet and they cost $30.
Summary: I would have given 5 stars if not for the bad USB cable bundle. It works, but it is very stiff. Unwinding it is like performing surgery, I was worried it will snap the internal wiring. I hope Wacom can improve their bundled USB cables to something like Nokia (or now Microsoft) provides for their smartphones, excellent USB cables. Price-wise, factory refurbished is excellent value, which a new Wacom product should be based.
Summary: I received a refurbished Wacom Bamboo Capture tablet with pen a few weeks ago. While shopping for a drawing tablet the size & price of this one seemed about right. The device arrived in a nice package looking brand new. Some extra software was included, most of which hadn't expired and was still useful. Using the pen/tablet takes a little getting used to. But it works. The pen is an interesting and decent way of navigating your computer.
Summary: I really like he price and the quality. The only "problem" was that the promotional codes inside the package were invalid. It makes this funny thing in Windows 8 where the drivers just appear to stop working after I disconnect the tablet for a couple of days and I need to re install them (happened twice so far). Other than that I have only good feelings about this tablet. Is really responsive and it comes with some good utilities.
Summary: The Bamboo is a great entry level pad that will control all of the functions in photo editing programs, really in all of the computer's functions. It literally replaces a mouse. And it is way more comfortable after a time than a mouse, more convienient and more functional, plus you get the "tablet". Sign your name to documents on the web,just like writing with a pen, draw pictures, create your own desighns for cards and so on.
