Great little helper

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.
Summary: I bought this for my daughter who is using it with an online math program. It is very good at allowing her to write her work out as if she is using pen/paper for the problems. Takes some getting used to but she is doing great in using it after a few weeks.
Summary: A huge complaint I have, and it seems to be the trend with others who use tablets, are the nibs that come with it. I would strongly suggest finding ones that are less damaging to your tablet. There are felt tips out there that do a wonderful job and have a much longer lifespan than the plastic ones.
Pros: Solid quality. Recommend it for beginners.
Cons: It does come with some software, although I found the additional programs counter-intuitive to what you really want the tablet for. Honestly, just install the driver for the tablet and leave the rest alone.
Summary: I bought this model not too long ago mainly for editing fine details in Photoshop. I was not disapointed in it at all. It did take a while to get used to the feel of the pen and the tablet, but once I got it there was no turning back! If you want more control than a mouse and don't want to spend a bundle this is your solution.
Summary: Tegnebrettet fungerer utmerket med både penn og finger, og gir et helt smooth alternativ til mus for både tegning og generelt PC-bruk. Med i pakken kom ArtRage 3.0, et enkelt stilrent tegneprogram med mange forskellige verktøy og alternativer, og Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 som i bunn og grunn er en enkel versjon av Photoshop.
