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: I am not a graphics artist so I cannot attest to the usage of the device along these lines. I bought the tablet to use as a teaching tool. At a previous school I had used a SMART Slate wireless slate (this device is roughly $360) to operate various software and integrate my lessons in a software called Smart Notebook.
Summary: ok this was my first tablet, it's pretty good when i first got it, didn't take me too long to get used to it and its perfect for those who are just getting into digital art. What kinda bothered me alittle was that when you wrote on the tablet with the pen, it was alittle loud in my opinion but besides that it was good.
Summary: Setup on my windows 7 laptop was very messy, hard to find the right drivers online, the ones that came with the installation CD caused the system to crash. The construction appeared cheap, and the stylus fell apart after some use. Overall I avoided using the product because both the mouse and the stylus were not that precise in moving the pointer on the screen.
