Summary: Do not buy this. It's a waste of your money and time. Mine took 100 tried from plugging it in and out, and the light that says if the pen is touching just kept blinking. And mine, I set up pressure and it had no pressure. I had enough and threw it at my table to rot. I will never use it again, and if I can find the pen to my old tablet, I will use it. Just get DigiPro WP5540 5.5" x 4" USB Tablet with Stylus (Black) . It's amazing and I have one.
Summary: This thing is garbage. I got it expecting to be able to draw crisp pictures but the software it comes with a joke and the pen to paper feel is almost as laughable. I felt like I was drawing a picture using the same machine you would sign your name on at the grocery store. Don't waste your money.
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: Save your money! Go to Best Buy (or friends) and try the product. You will find it is very hard to use. Don't be fooled by the videos or other reviews (might be written by their employees). Test it before you buy it. This is not a product that you will be using with any ease. Software took hours to install (Windows 7): Missing .dll files, I had to read many web sites to find out the cures. Tech support blamed Microsoft for the missing .dll files.
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: Bought the pen and touch yesterday worked for hours to get it installed to no avail. Drivers lock up my vista running machine. Cursor refuses to move for several minutes when open or closing a window, a program, or even a drop down menu. Unistalled drivers and pc worked fine again. Reinstalled only to have to lock up issues again. Called csr and was a hopeless failure. He said he has never heard of this problem before.
Summary: I spent about 11 hours trying to get my new (June 2011) Bamboo Pen and Touch to work, first on Win7 64-bit and then, when that failed I tried again on my trusty old XP 32 box. Now I am giving up. On Win7 it worked with the Doodler but it would not work with Gimp (the #1 open-source graphic software and a fine piece of kit). On XP, Doodler worked but without pressure sensitivity. Photoshop also had the pressure sensitivity issue.
Summary: I have a Mac PPC running 10.4.11 and it won't install Elements even though it gave the indication that it would work according to system requirements on the box. It's frustrating that even though you do due diligence in making sure that the product you take the trouble to buy ends up not being as advertised and YOU have to take the time and expense to return it. Crap Wacom! Ever hear of product testing?
Summary: I use a Macbook Pro with a built-in touchpad and I very much like the smoothness and usability of the mac's touchpad. I bought the Bamboo Pen+Touch for my Windows 7 desktop machine (3GHz dual core) in the hope of getting a similar experience. However, after using the Bamboo for a day, I've given up;( The Bamboo's touch experience is pretty much unusable: scrolling only works intermittently, it often confuses dragging and clicking gestures, sometimes it just stops working...
