Very buggy at first, but worth the time to troubleshoot!

Summary: I love this tablet! HOWEVER, I almost returned it when I first got it. I run Windows 7 and this tablet had so many bugs and and issues that it was becoming a nuisance instead of a help. But the technical help service that they offer on their website (as well as a lot of googleing) cured almost all of the problems (it still has a few benign issues which I can't resolve that deter me from giving 5 stars).
Summary: I had a Bamboo and wanted to get a better tablet - this one seems much larger than the Bamboo even though it is listed as small. The problem I had was that the cable was way too short - I can't imagine why they made it that way. I tried a mini USB cable and that didn't fit. Neither did the micro fit, so I bought a USB cable extension. I emailed Wacom for the exact name of the cable so I could try to find a 6' one and one also that didn't have the right-angle to it.
Summary: I ordered next-day AIR. It took 3 days to get to me. Not to mention it was delivered around 8PM @ night. Amazon messed up and ended up ordering two of these for me. All-in all the buying experience was horrid, BUT; the tablet is amazing. I didn't really buy it for the art aspect, I bought it to use as a new mouse. In my experience, it was a bit difficult to adapt to at first, I ended up unplugging my mouse so I had no choice but to use the tablet.
Summary: Got this when my Bamboo MTE-450 quit. Turns out that was a software issue (went back to working after a hard reboot of Vista) but still glad I got this. Just nicer looking and works the same (when configured so). Now my wife has a tablet (the old one), which once she gets used to it should be easier for her than the mouse, which she struggled with (directionally challenged).
Summary: I absolutely love this. It is easy to install, great to use, and fun for drawing. Now I never have to use a stupid mouse ever again. I've even started to use it for things other than drawing, such as online and on games like Skyrim. I recommend this to any inspired artist who can't use a mouse. But one suggestion would be making a slot under the tablet for the pen, for if I ever lost it I would have to pay $10 for a new one.
Summary: I'm still dabbling in graphic design, and I wanted something that I could use to practice my skills without making a huge investment. This is a great introductory product to get you used to using a tablet and expanding the capabilities of Photoshop and Illustrator. It's also very compact and light, so I can travel with it if necessary.
Excerpt: I got this one because I wanted to test out a tablet before I dove in. This really does everything I wanted it to. It is so helpful getting to those tricky mask areas. Highly recommend it. It does require a bit of a learning curve, but it's worth the effort.
Summary: good device for it's price. of course wacom has much better devices but this is good too. for it's price. good news because linux fresh kernels support this device primary, for old u need to compile it self. because default repository modules not recognize this devise correctly.
