Summary: The Tablet does not Support Windows 7 64-Bit, or Service Pack 3 for Windows XP, or Vista. I have a lot of computers and the only ones that this tablet worked on were the ones with Windows XP Service Pack 2.
Summary: This product isn't worth much of my time, so I'll be quick. The cursor jumps horizontally when crossing certain thresholds. One time of that, there is occasional jumping (and clicking) all over the place. It's just broken and unusable and I'd stay away from any product by Aiptek.
Summary: Hyperpen...What else? I am a part-time computer artist, I received my Hyperpen 4 years ago as a Christmas present,and it still works wonderfully. Turns out a good 90% of the negative comments Ive read about this product are User-based... 1/ DRIVERS people! get the latest drivers, take the time to set up your product: requires a little more attention than with your "everything pre-installed" Wacom, but once everything is set up correctly, it works perfectly.
Summary: I can use this as a basic pointing device, which does not work as well as my laser mouse, but the pressure sensitive features of this device do not work in any major graphics software that I have tried it in. All tech suport says is "install the new drivers.
This tablet works wonderfully - and the price is right

Summary: I purchased this tablet on April 16, 2007. I do not know what happened for the people who said the tablet does not work, or the drivers stink, because everything has worked perfectly for me. Installation was less than quick for me because I had old Wacom drivers I needed to manually uninstall prior to this installation, but that has nothing to do with this product. I recommend installing the drivers *before* connecting the tablet.
Summary: I bought this graphics tablet thinking it would help in making more precise cutouts in graphics programs. Such as people or objects from one photo pasted into another. Instead it randomly jumped all over the screen out of control. Like it had a mind of its own. If you want precision, don't waste your time or money on this piece of crap.
How to make piece with your Aiptek Graphics Tablet: It's the Drivers!!!

Summary: First off, I do not recommend this tablet if your serious about graphic arts. However, it works well for light to medium use, doing picture retouching, and simple graphics. See the bottom of my review for other good/bad/ugly-ness. OK, so, here is how I got the best possible performance out of my Aiptek 12000U: 1. Uninstall the Aiptek drivers, shut down the computer, unplug the tablet. (no, not a joke, just keep reading) 2.
Summary: True. For the money you have a great size tablet. The calibration of the tablet is simple but the only place pen pressure appears to work correctly is in the calibration tool. Like a previous reviewer mentioned it does not work in Photoshop CS2 (calibration that is). There is one updated driver on the website (compared to the one shipped on CD) which works worse for me, the pointer jumps around sporadically it is about as accurate as a bulldozer.
Summary: The drawing tablet has become infanitly handy to me on my artistic ventures. being an avid flash artist and fairly decent with photoshop i can wholeheartedly recomend this product. the presure sensitivity is good however my one major concern is with the stylus. the right click and double click rarely work. also the mouse is almost useless. i say scrap the mouse and spend more money on the stylus. for the price that it was and ease it provides this is a very good product!
