Hard to draw on a Bamboo tablet.

Summary: I love the design of the tablet and the packaging. However, it is really just too difficult to draw on the tablet and see what one is drawing on the computer screen. It would be so much simpler to see it on the tablet. Consequently, I never use it. I wouldn't recommend it for artists. It works better for taking notes.
Works alright, pen loses pressure sensitivity often.

Summary: It works but has some issues. I have to restart often because the pen loses pressure sensitivity, probably because it's a refurb. I owned this same model prior to buying this and didn't have this issue (the pen fell apart but I was needing a new tablet anyway). Probably won't buy in the future but it worked for my budget.
only buy if you want to relearn how to draw or you like to edit images

Summary: 8 inch tablet (drawing surface), 12 inch total. Buttons: pretty useless unless you can figure out how to reprogram them. The included software is awful. Here's how it works: When you get the pen near the tablet, you can move the cursor. When you want to draw, you put the tip on the tablet. Pros: Great for image editing. Lightweight. Inexpensive. Cons: The cord is on the wrong side in my opinion. When drawing on paper, you rotate it to draw comfortably.
Summary: Good for travelling users, not really needed in a desktop setup. Comes in useful for use with my MacBook in lectures at university because the Intuos tablet I have has a space to keep the battery pack and tiny USB dongle safe. Saves me from having to carry a cable with me but really only is useful for short periods as the battery isn't great.
Summary: The actual wireless adapter itself is great as it allows you to have more freedom when using your tablet, however the reason I have only given this a 3 star rating is because the battery life isnt great, even on a full charge you have about 2 hours before you start getting low battery notifications, if like me you spend evenings drawing away for hours this short battery life soon gets to be an issue, you have to leave your tablet plugged into your computer in order for...
Summary: This produced totally erratic and unexpected cursor movements due I think to the proximity of my wifi hub and/or a cordless telephone to my computer. The instruction booklet mentions this possibility but I cannot resite either of them so had to return the kit for a refund. I gave it three stars because the kit itself in the right position may very well be ok so didn't want to mark it down to one star.
Summary: The mail man delivered this for me this morning and pleased as usual with amazon's fast shipping but I am 50/50 with this product and the reason is that yes it does what it states, it makes your wacom graphic tablet wireless which I love as I hate wires every where but it takes FOREVER to charge its a joke, the item was delivered at 1PM today, set it up and started charging about 1:30PM and its now 17:17PM and its STILL charging!
Summary: I got this along with the Small Wacom Tablet after reading the reviews saying that I absolutely needed it. Well, believe me, you don't. Firstly, the tiny battery only lasts a day so you will need to always have a usb cable trailing out of the back of your computer in anycase in order to charge it up each and every day. In most cases, I just leave the cable plugged in.
Summary: I am a designer/animator and therefore I use my wacom very frequently. If you are working in a similar field or will be using the tablet frequently for painting I would not recommend buying it. Within a matter of months I had already worn down one nib for my pen- which caught me by surprise since I've owned other tablets for years and never worn down a nib before!
