Summary: Poor responsiveness, inaccurate, sluggish pointer motion - the built-in touch pad on my laptop, or your average low-end optical mouse, is considerably faster and more accurate than this. I'm returning mine, and would advice everyone to stay away from this. Looks like WACOM is no longer selling this device - my guess is it did not live up to their standards; looks like a failed attempt at marketing a lower-end product, but this device definitely is not worthy of the WACOM...
Summary: I bought the bamboo tablet because of all the good functionalities that it offered. The size seems big which is something I wanted, and the price seemed reasonable. After using it for a couple of days here are my thoughts: Pros: + Good size + Good set of features + Price Cons: - Quality!!! I cannot emphasize how bad the quality of this product is. The touch area is not smooth at all. You have to press hard to it to that you get a smooth scrolling on your screen.
Summary: Awful. The box is nice and everything is packaged in the box just like something high quality that you buy from Apple. However, the item itself is thin, cheap plastic. The part where you glide your fingers is made of some weird material, not like the usual track surface you find on a laptop. After installing the drivers from the CD-ROM, I had to reboot my computer.
Summary: Would have rated it a 0, but I am not allowed to give 0 stars. Bought new. Followed instructions to install on Win7 HP DV7 notebook. 1. Tutorial was supposed to start after installing drivers- didn't work. 2. Pad was supposed to start after installing drivers- didn't work. 3. Rebooted- Didn't work 4. Tried running tutorial from CD- didn't work 5. Tried running tutorial from disk- didn't work 6. Tried to logon to website for support. They wanted my credit card. 7.
Summary: But I really hate it. I gave it a fair chance, too -- I used it exclusively for almost two weeks, but finally gave up. So what do I hate? Most of all, I hate it because it is absolutely horrible for editing text. Selecting text is excruciating. And I write a lot of text (especially code). And despair all ye who think you might do something handy like drag and drop text selections.
Summary: Guys, I purchased for 40 dollars, as i was impressed by watching the videos provided in the products website. Like the same you do. But after getting the product, nothing came into my mind except returning the product immediately. The touch pad, doesn't work like even a normal touchpad. It is made with cheap quality and without your intention it functions intermittently as Right click even you just place your finger for a 2 seconds.
Summary: I installed the Bamboo touch pad hoping it would provide my iMac with the multi-touch capabilities of an iPhone or iBook. The installation was easy, and the tutorial was surprisingly well done; but, that's where the positive aspects end. Simple functions like select-and-drag work poorly. There's no way to adjust the touch sensitivity of the pad. Sometimes it's overly responsive, other times you have to tap very hard to invoke a function.
Summary: Be very careful of buying this. If you want just a touch pad, then I suppose you're okay. But if you want a small graphics tablet, get the Bamboo Pen. I got suckered by this thing at newegg and wrote a bad review on it. My review is not there. So be very careful that you are indeed ordering the one that you want before confirming ANY order. I hope that this will save a few people some money.
Summary: Hoping to emulate the multi-touch trackpad on my Macbook (which works extremely well), I purchased this for my MacPro - I shouldn't have bothered. Mouse pointing is far too imprecise/jittery/finicky to be useable. Using the pad to click is noisy - usually clicks much too easily. Fingers close to the pad disable the one touching the pad, and to top it off, if you disable the touch to click feature to use it only as a pointing device, the switches on the left of the pad...
