Summary: I know people go nuts for the Wacom tablets, but my husband and I both own Genius tablets and we love them. They're a fraction of the price and they work great. I've never had an issue with either tablet. The only downside is that on the newer model the buttons are really flat and hard to feel without looking, but you can adapt to it. No bells and whistles on this tablet, but it's excellent even for people like us who do digital art for a living.
Summary: This unit is horrible and it failed on me after light and minor use. First the pen stopped working and fell apart then the mouse stopped worked and then I had to throw it away and buy a new mouse because I could not afford to buy another tablet after you guys sent me such a poor product, I was broke. I feel really bad that I wasted my money on this unit and it didn't even last me.
Summary: I've had this tablet for about 3 years and I'm very happy with it still. It's sensitive, and easy to start using right away. My only complaint, and the reason for the 4 star rating, is the pen. The piece that the buttons are under, over time, will easily pop off when you try to take the battery compartment off. After putting a little craft glue on it, it's as good as new, but it was worth mentioning.
Summary: Good tablet, not amazing, but it works. The buttons on the edges are kinda hard to use, but overall it still is a decent tablet. Especially for the low price. I have since moved on, but it is certainly a good tablet for beginners! Mouse was pretty....weird and cheap feeling, but...I really didn't use it anyways.
Summary: The sensitivity is pretty good, and the pieces seems quite durable. I think this is perfect to introductory-mid level digital artists. It requires batteries in order for the mouse and the pen to work (AAA batteries are included), but I use them with other rechargeable Ni-MH batteries anyway, so I had no problem regarding this issue.
Summary: The Genius Mouse-Pen tablet is okay. I say that because my first tablet was a Wacom Graphire II 4x6 that did not require the mouse or pen to have batteries. The AAA battery in the mousepen makes it slightly top heavy and the side buttons are difficult to locate sometimes whereas I have to physically bring the pen close to my eyes in order to find them. The tablet is responsive and accurate all in all but not the best substitute for a Wacom.
Summary: Summary: This tablet performs incredibly well at the price. I changed a few applications to make better use of the device, and am completely satisfied by the performance. Since it is less expensive than the top of the line tablets, I expect it will miss some features. The second negative (focus rolls off screen when using multi-desktop) was the reason I took one star off the review.
