Summary: I received this tablet as a Christmas present and it stopped working in January or February. The problem was the metal piece that the charger connects to became loose. It would turn on and off every few seconds, no matter what I tried. The warranty was a pain. I called and they said I would have to ship it and pay for repairs. That does not sound like a warranty to me... I never actually got it fixed by them.
Summary: This could be a really great 5 egg product if Wacom would get this nib situation with some of their tablet surfaces under control.
Pros: Decent size drawing area. Nice paper like feel. Good amount of pressure levels. Pen feels nice & comfortable.
Cons: Less than a week into using it we already have to replace one of the 3 nibs that come with it. Replacements are expensive. After experiencing this problem I checked online for similar issues with other people and sure enough, for some of the Wacom tablets, this is a major problem. We now have to try some of the "made up" solutions, that Wacom suggests, to try and increase the life of the pen nibs. Like taping a smooth piece of paper or plastic to the tablet?
