Love it but the nibs wear off too quickly
4 March 2014
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.
Summary: I bought this as another tool to have for digital illustration projects. It's wonderful when using a mouse just doesn't cut it. Sometimes it gets jumpy or freezes on me, but it's fine if I just unplug it and plug it back in. I wish I had more reason to use it, but for the times I need it, I'm so glad I have it.
Summary: This is pretty good. It is fine for what I use it for and I probably wouldn't want to spend more for anything better. Takes a little getting used to but is good to sketch smooth drawings. I like to handdraw a rough outline and then take a photo of it with my computer - then sketch with the Wacom to make it better - then delete the initial sketch.
Summary: I got this so I could animate using Adobe Flash. My first tablet ever, and it really helped instead of using a mouse and tediously drawing lines and erasing them. It has an eraser on the back and the feel is like real paper. Touch is useless, turned it off immediately except for the gestures. Programmed buttons to keyframes and tools and now I can buzz through.
Summary: I got it today and it's pretty good. I does what I need it to do. It's small, slim and lightweight and works (almost) seamlessly in Ubuntu (Natty 11.04) as soon as I plug it in, which is a plus for me. The only problem was when I did plug it in, the touch and gesture feature got in the way a lot of using the pen. Then, when I'd use the touch, it selected all the text and would right click for no apparent reason.
Summary: The tablet shipped very quickly. I had played with earlier bamboo pen only tablets, and I used the eraser a lot. So, I got this one instead of the newer Wacom Capture. The tablet felt nice, however, the surface isn't a hard surface. It feels like a plastic sheet on top of a rigid surface, similar to corrugated cardboard(but smoother) I also had some air bubbles and depressions in the tablet. I already have scratches on my tablet from light drawing!
Summary: I wouldn't have known this was a refurb if not for the label on the box. Great condition, no scratches or dings. Sensitive enough for my needs (beginner graphic designer and illustrator), and very easy to set up and use. I had a slight problem with the touch function at the beginning (it kept thinking I was using two fingers when I was only using one), but the problems were exclusive to my old computer, so it was probably the computer's fault.
