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: I bought a Bamboo Touch over a year ago at a local Staples store and have been mostly pleased with it since then. I work on my computer 8-12hrs a day and I was used to using the track-pad on my laptop, so when I stopped traveling I decided to try this Bamboo tablet (instead of hunching over my laptop all day). Bamboo's touchpad is a very solid piece of hardware (not like the flimsy thing I had tried before: "Adesso Easy Cat Glidepoint Touchpad").
Summary: I bought the tablet for medical school and have been using it to take notes directly on my lectures. I have also been slowly using it as a mouse alternative, although I still am attached to my mouse. I use OneNote for my lectures. The product works GREAT... after you give it a chance with constant use for at least a week. I have now been using it for about a month and am finally pretty comfortable with it.
Summary: I use mine on an iMac to: draw in Adobe Photoshop CS5 [Mac ] and Adobe Illustrator CS5 [Mac ], creating hand-written pdfs, read massive word documents (100s of pages in type 12) by zooming in to ease the stress on my eyes and the natural feel when scrolling with the touch on, and replace my Apple Mighty Mouse . I'm no graphic artist by any stretch of the imagination, just a hobbyist that dreams of owning an Wacom Cintiq 12WX 12-Inch Pen Display -but can't afford it.
Excerpt: I use this product on my wacom 21ux and have found it very easy to use, at the moment i cant offer any reason not to buy it, its slick looking and light weight to use, worth trying out if you ask me
Summary: So I was on the hunt for a new mouse. Due to an unfortunate accident, my mouse button on my MacBook Pro is damaged. Just the button, not the track pad, but trying to reconfigure my trackpad AND my memorized actions to accommodate no button was proving to be stressful. I had some VERY specific features in mind when I began my search. It had to be portable (meaning not bulky or have to be in a cramped "button-will always be depressed" position when in my laptop case.
Summary: My first Wacom tablet was the Original "Intuos" 4x5 back in 1998, I loved it so much that the next year I purchased the 12x18 monster! I currently use a Cintiq 21UX and a Fujitsu Tablet, so all my digitizers are screen based. I purchased this for a friend who wants to use it with a projector instead of a "blackboard/whiteboard" in a teaching setting. Below are couple of instructions I gave to him as he was trying to figure out the tablet.

Summary: For your information, this is not a mouse alternative. It is a tool for drawing. I run the Student Adobe CS5 Production Package on Micro$oft Windows 7 64-bit and it works beautifully. The software pack includes Adobe Photoshop Element 8.0 and a really limited photo touch up add-on from Nik Software called Color Effects Pro 3.0 (it is almost a trial version of the real software just not timed).
Summary: Received the Wacom Bamboo Touch and Pen yesterday. The software was unusable on Mac OSX 10.4.11. Just so you are not as disappointed as I was. I went to the Wacom site and downloaded an older driver that would work. The Photoshop Elements 8 is not compatible with Mac OSX 10.4.11 even though it said it would be. I paid more for less, bummer. I was able to load the plugin from the Nik Color Efex for Photoshop. Just no photoshop to go with it.
