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

Eric Fleming, Amazon

  • 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.

Know what you're getting into

thenoirguy, Amazon
7 January 2013
  • Summary: This gets the job done...until it doesn't. I don't want to give the sense that it doesn't work, it does, it feels a bit scratchy compared to other drawing tablets, but it works. My main problem with this is that after 8 months of use, the pen nib broke off in the pen, and with the way the pen's...

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...

Great for beginners; if you want a nice tablet, look elsewhere.

Nikole Sotelo, Amazon
12 December 2012
  • Summary: I used to have a bamboo FUN that recently died, and I bought this as a replacement. The active area is rather small, but it works just fine, if not more efficiently. I got this model since it was cheaper than the other, more spacious tablets and because it didn't have express keys, which I never...

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

Green, Amazon
23 August 2012
  • 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.

USB cable way too short

Paride M., Newegg
21 January 2012
  • Summary: Only 3 eggs because of the cable and the flimsy connection. I expect better from a Wacom product. If you only need a few extra inches of cable try to use it 'upside down' and switch to the opposite hand that you would normally use: it might give you just the amount you need!
  • Pros: A cool and fun to start. The basic Bamboo Connect model is simple to use and does not break the bank. I bought the bamboo for my child to allow him to do stuff like dad. The included software is fun. Coupled with Pixie or some open source programs this tablet it is educational and a lot of fun. T...
  • Cons: Flimsy USB connection, maybe not a good choice for children. Time will tell. The USB cable provided with the tablet is way too short: only 3 feet! With the supplied cable, it is impossible to use unless you put the pc on the desk or the tablet on the floor! I contacted Wacom and they suggested to...

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.
