Summary: The hardware is great, and is a great value for the $$. The free software was not so great - I guess you get what u pay for. We ended up getting a different drawing app, and everything works well.
Summary: Great tablet! A fantastic replacement for my old tablet, it's small so it won't take up alot of space on my little desk. Installed with no problems. My only little dislike about is that the surface is abit rough but its something I can fix.
Summary: I have several Wacom products, as I learn digital drawing. Two pluses drew me to purchase this one. The first was obvious from the description: it has the capacity for wireless operation, with the available adapter. The second plus I discovered once I started using it with the adapter... it balances nicely in my hand, so I can pick it up off the desk and make more accurate lines. (Besides, the stylus has an eraser end on it -- if I do make a mistake.
Summary: I've never drawn on a tablet before this one. I'm still getting used to the small workspace, but so far, so good! The only programs I have are the ones that came with the tablet. I thought I was really going to like the anime software and not the manga one, but it's the exact opposite. I draw mostly with the manga software because I think it gives you more freedom with drawing and it's easier to learn with. The tablet itself is lovely.
Summary: I like everything about this drawing tablet except for the pen , there are times that I found the clickable part of the pen to get in the way, but other than that everything functions very well. Once you register the device you get access to free software which is fun to use makes the art process much faster then drawing with paper and pen. I found that I'm able to fill in larger areas of the drawing with more color and more detail, in a much more shorter period of time.
Summary: I owned a Monoprice 8x6 inch tablet before, and I have to admit the upgrade to the Intuos Manga was worth the money. The hand-input controls like panning, rotating, and zooming are priceless. The convenience is something I will not be able to turn away from. To me, a larger tablet isn't really necessary, so this is perfect for me. I'd buy again if I had to.
Summary: This is a great product, I not only use it for drawing but I use it for work as well (a good write off for me!). The packages it also comes with is a plus so I am certainly enjoying this product and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a cheap but sturdy tablet.
