Pretty good

Jonny, Amazon
30 June 2014
  • Summary: This was actually pretty good. It worked for the most part. I would prefer if it was wireless and the actual pen had a cable so you won't lose the pen. Then pen is very thick and uncomfortable to hold.

Ehhhhhhhh

  • Summary: I haven't used it much, and that's probably related to its performance. I find that the pen skips when I try to start a new line. Wish the writing area was bigger, ITS TINY!!! Probably off better dealing out more money for a different model.

Poor Cable connection issue at tablet - Bamboo Pen Tablet model CTL 470

david Schmidt, Amazon
8 November 2013
  • Summary: The tablet works fine but the cable that plugs into the tablet is very weak and very tiny. After just 4 months of use the connection is useless. It wobbles and becomes disconnected very easily and I have to keep restarting my computer after it unplugs. If I get another tablet from Wacomb it will be the Bamboo cordless model. I had another Bamboo that performed great for several years before it just wore out. This was my 2nd model and a different model number.

Great tablet, but a warning.

Magpie, Amazon
22 December 2012
  • Summary: I'm torn on how many stars to give this product. I've been using my Bamboo for almost a year now and it's served me very well. But I keep having to order replacement cables! I don't abuse my electronics and I have never had a USB cable die on me before, but I'm replacing my cable for a third time this week. If you buy this tablet, you might want to purchase a sturdier mini USB cable from elsewhere. Wacom's cables don't hold up under regular use.

They sure don't make 'em like they used to

Green, Amazon

  • Summary: When I first started drawing 8 years ago I bought a Wacom Graphire 4 and I loved it until it fell apart. Recently I bought this tablet and it's disappointed me in so many ways. 1. The first thing I noticed was that the eraser doesn't work. Yes, I've tried the drivers and I've tried multiple programs but the eraser just doesn't work. It IS an eraser, right? It says it is... 2. I've only had this thing 2 months and the first nib is almost totally gone.

Not As Described on the Wacom Website

M. Shapiro, Amazon
12 January 2012
  • Summary: I'm not a serious artist. I'm a doodler and an interaction designer who needed a fast way of communicating concepts quickly, so I wanted to get something that let me sketch directly to my screen and use that sketch to communicate my ideas with colleagues and collaborators. The tablet itself worked fine. Working from a Windows 7 machine, I had to tweak some settings to get it to recognize the pressure sensitivity and work properly in Photoshop. Overall, not too difficult.

Like the pad, but the driver install is iffy

Thomas Fiddaman "& Sarah Rittmeyer", Amazon
30 November 2011
  • Summary: I like the pad, and the bundled Sketchbook is nice. However, the driver install crashed my system (brand new Win7, so there shouldn't be conflicts) and triggered five (!) reinstalls of my nvidia audio driver. Not impressive. It works fine after a reboot though.

A Downgrade

Eric, Amazon
1 November 2011
  • Summary: Don't get me wrong, this tablet is very nice. It does what it's supposed to. The pressure sensitivity is very nice and spot on, increased pressure from older models of the bamboo. I previously had a Bamboo MTE450A and Bamboo fun (both older generations), both had the same functionality as each other. I never upgraded to the Bamboo Pen. I accidentally smashed my pen for my Bamboo fun, and sold my Bamboo already, so I figured I would upgrade.

gut für anfänger or just for fun

Blubb, Amazon
30 November 2013
  • Summary: Hallo, ich habe mir das Graphiktablett vor einer Woche bestellt. Bisher kann ich sagen, dass ich als Einsteiger sehr gut damit zurechtkomme. Das Erkennen/Installieren unter Windows 7 lief problemlos, allerdings spinnen die Treiber etwas, wobei es zu Abstürzen kommt. Man sollte diese lieber per Hand auf der Wacom-Seite downloaden.
