Excerpt: I was worried when ordering that this would be too small, but it ended up being the perfect size for me. The amount of desk space that it takes up is also very small. So far, it has been very easy to get used to. I Highly recommend this as an entry level tablet.

Summary: I found out about tablet use by reading on how other photographers edit their work and noticed a lot of tablet use, so I got curious and ordered one. I found that after decades of using a mouse for all pc operations the learning curve of switching to a tablet was quite steep , up to the npoint that i disconnected it and put it on a shelf, curiosity once more got the better of me and now with a more patient aproach I found that i like it and it is part of my desktop now .
Summary: Awesome! I've been using Wacom tablets since 2007 and I'd never try another brand. I used to be a die-hard Intuos3/Intuos4 user and my main tablet is an Intuos4 wireless in size medium. However, most of my work is currently on a laptop, so it's awkward to use such a big tablet (and the wireless isn't what it's cracked up to be). This tablet size is perfect for all the work I do, it's portable, AND it even doubles as a big touchpad.
Summary: As far as I've heard everyone talk, Wacom is the only way to go for graphics tablets. I'm inclined to agree. I am a photographer, and I use it mostly for photo editing. In the case of the small, the rough, paper-like texture people are mentioning is there, but it's easy to get used to. The touch part is almost invaluable to me, but of course it's the pen I use for extra precision when I'm editing photos.
Summary: I just love this tablet and its my first and my entry into digital drawing. I've been meaning to get a wacom tablet for a while now and I love this tablet. However my only complain is that the pen tip sucks because after a while using it for drawing it can get worn down quite fast so in the future I will need to replace it.
Summary: The size is perfect if you have to travel and carry it around. The installation confused me because I have a Mac and they make the instructions really easy to understand for a pc but it wasn't too hard to get it started. Plus, you get free software to a bunch of creative programs. That was a nice suprise.
Summary: I am a big Wacom fan. I've had other tablets from Wacom in the past, always have been pleased. This one though, is done on the cheap. The feel of the tip agains the surface is pretty rough, not smooth like the other black tablets. I had to change the tip within a month because the tip lost it's roundness. Then every so often it started moving my cursor every which way, so I had to restart to fix it. It is cheap but you get what you pay for.
Summary: The tablet performs great, and I've had no major issues with drawing on it. Only minor issue is when used with Photoshop, the tablet sometimes randomly looses pressure sensitivity for a couple strokes. However, the drives are rather archaic and cumbersome, with the unusual requirement to restart the computer for full functionality.
