Excerpt: When I first picked it up, it felt clunky, it's so different from the pen that came with the Wacom.I forced myself to use it and within an hour it was perfect. I put in the spring tip and set the button on top to ALT so I could erase without turning the pen over and took the feather from 100% to nearly zero and painted the noise out of the sky on some old photos right to the edge of mountains. It really feels right now. I can put the other pen away, this is my pen!
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Control, Increased Productivity, Lightweight, Natural Feel, Precision At Last

Excerpt: This pen takes a little getting used to and you have to play with the brush settings to get it working the way you want to but after about 30 minutes I had it going good. Has a different feel and I'm looking forward to a longer amount of time with it but it is a typical excellent wacom product.
Summary: ...and I finally got one. I should have sprung for it many years ago. It's fun to use, once I got used to it. Well, let me be honest, I'm not completely used to it: there's definitely an art of drawing on a blank pad and not seeing what you drew (on the pad) but instead, watching it happen onscreen. That takes some getting used to, but that's training ME, not an issue with this pad.
Summary: the Tablet came brand new of course but I was worried because you can't buy this at a local retail store anymore. I was think about getting the bamboo fun which is 2x the surface area but this is perfect for a 1080 monitor as far as the size ratio. Feels natural when drawing and the eraser is something I wouldn't go without.
Summary: AFIK, Wacom has discontinued these. Bummer! I don't need the pen and touch variety, just a touchpad for ergonomic reasons and to alleviate stress from single-handed mousing. With the Wacom Bamboo Touch Tablet, I can use both my right and left hands for "mousing" functions, improving speed and productivity and minimizing RSI/CTS strain. The Bamboo drivers allows you to assign the device independently from the mouse settings in the operating system.
Excellent tool; terrible software problems and customer service

Summary: I originally borrowed a version of this tablet from a friend, and proceeded to keep it for most of a year because I loved it so much. It's perfect for digital painting, sketches, photoshopping mustaches onto your friends, touchpad replacement, what have you. I was so pleased that I bought one, but after hours of confusion, anger, denial and general frustration, I was unable to make the tablet talk to my computer.
