Excerpt: I used to do portraitures back in high school. I’ve given up Art when I went to college, but it’s still in my blood. I strive to make an Art journal, and I’d like to take it to a different medium, something that’s readily available to me. How about using my laptop for drawing? I’ve had the Wacom Bamboo pen and touch for a while. I bought one for recreational purposes. I was adamant to get only the Bamboo pen at first.
Summary: Purchased this particular unit for my girlfriend who is a budding artist and starting to get into digital art. Didn't have much money so I searched and did research and found this tablet which fit my price and specifications list. The build quality is good and very sturdy. It does not feel like a cheap plastic tablet and the pen also appears to be built very tough. The sensitivity of the unit is also very good with minimal lag when drawing/painting.
Summary: I love this tablet, the only problem is that the pen nibs wear out very quickly (it seems a few days but is probably 1-2 weeks), and as soon as they begin to the feel of the pen is not as good as with new nibs. However, I contacted customer support and I got a fee tips, one of which turned out to be a workable solution: wrapping the tablet in a clear transparent film. The tablet doesn't look and feel as good anymore, but it works just fine.
Summary: Bought this as a birthday present to myself and I haven't been disappointed. Smooth drawing action. I tend to hit random buttons while using it so I accidentally turn on the touch button, and I rest my hand on it so that makes the cursor go nuts thinking that it's my stylus, that's annoying but not a deal breaker, besides it's probably just my characteristics that cause this problem.
You'll never need another tablet for your unicorn-drawing needs

Summary: It works very well for drawing pictures of unicorns, though I'd imagine you could also use it to create a Fan letter to Nickelba---nahh, I'm just kidding. You won't be laying any praise upon Nickelback any time soon.
Summary: I was skeptical at first but man! This thing ROCKS. I use it with my photo editing software to make fine adjustments to photos. I must caution that there is a learning curve with this device just like any other device. One thing I had to do was quit looking down at the Bamboo when working, just like you do not look at where your mouse is when you are editing photo's. Once you get the feel for this you will wonder how you ever got by without it!
