Summary: At the time of writing, i payed 83$ USD for this pen. It has a finger wheel and a single button, along with standard nib and eraser points. The reason i bought this was because i assumed the finger wheel was programable, it is not.
Summary: I was really excited to discover the bamboo touch, I'm a fan of my MacBook Pro touchpad and as a music composer sporting computer keyboard, music keyboard, mix controller and sizable audio monitors connected to an iMac desk space is at a huge premium and I loved the idea of Bamboo's tiny footprint.
Summary: I wanted to like this. I really did. I have both a Mac and PC and I really really wanted multip touch on the PC. But the bottom line is that while the hardware is of obvious quality, the implementation of multitouch is sadly lacking. I simply doesn't work very well.
Summary: TL;DR: If you're used to high levels of precision and a smooth experience, skip the Bamboo Touch. It reminds me of the Koala Pad of 25 years ago. I've owned a Wacom Intuos3 8x10 graphics tablet for almost 10 years, and love it. The build and quality of the tablet was incredible, right from the box.
Summary: This product is not worth the trouble. If I had gotten the one that lets you draw on it I could justify its size, but the way it is its to large to use as a touch pad. Mine is sitting in the box and will probably stay there.
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.
Summary: My review will concentrate on the use of this device as a replacement for a mouse or trackball. I'm interested in that for ergonomic reasons; I'm a retired software engineer, and spend many hours per day using the computer.
Summary: I bought this product as a tool for note taking as a medical school student. I wanted to be able to hand write notes into Microsoft OneNote (I remember things better if I write rather than type) and to annotate slides and PDFs.
Summary: I really really wanted to love the Wacom Bamboo Touch, but unfortunately it's going to be going back. I love the track pad in it's smooth silky multitouch goodness on my MacBook but I'm a Windows SysAdmin by day. I currently use a Logitech TrackMan Wheel and have for many years.
Summary: I've used a Wacom Intuos 4 Medium for a while now, and I'm very happy with it. I bought the Bamboo Touch for my secondary computer, assuming (a) it's useful and (b) I can use a pen with it. The accuracy of this tablet is below acceptable levels.
