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: I've been using 3-D graphic design software for about twelve years. I am having a hard time making the switch from mouse to the Bamboo touchpad. I'm so used to my mouse buttons and keyboard commands that this seems clumsy, and a bit hard to accustom my hands for the large size of the pad.
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: It's OK for what I use it for, but the batter life is pretty poor; and it takes 6 hours to charge. I think someone at Wacom needs to take a look at the design of their batteries, or the power consumption of their products. If I were using it all day, every day, I'd be getting frustrated by the frequent recharging.
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: As much as I love this wacom pad, I have had problems dowloading the software with the key provided. Hopefully this will be solved quickly as i'm in contact with the support centre.(if anyone knows how to solve this issue, pleaseget in touch with me, i'm pulling my hair out!) However the speed of delivery weas fantastic! And the price is unbeatable!
Summary: Got this yesterday and was pretty excited, it came with the battery totally dead. I charged it till it was 100% then started to use it, it worked beautifully -- for a few minutes, then it shut off. I pressed the power button and it started again and worked for a 2-3 minutes, then shut off again. This happened a few times. I spoke to Amazon and they are sending me a replacement.
