A good tablet for it's price. Great for beginners or casual artists.

Tiffany, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this tablet for almost 5 years. It still works. I however, am not a pro nor do I really frequently use it. Like others have said, it's definitely built more as a cheap, durable alternative for the casual artist.

  • Summary: We lost the hyper pen for the HP1500U tablet we have and when I went online to the AIPTEK site it said they were temporarily out./ I called the company and they said the company in Taiwan tha makes the tablets has advised them that they no longer will be making any extra pens.

This review for older model

C. Leach, Amazon
12 November 2007
  • Summary: This tablet was a gift for my artistic daughter, age 9. I wanted an entry level item that wouldn't break the bank just in case she abandoned her desire for making art. It was a way to introduce her to the world of computer graphic art.

Please avoid this tablet at all costs

C. T. Gormley, Amazon
28 March 2007
  • Summary: My company bought this tablet for me about 6-8 months ago. I have tried using it over and over, but the control is horrible. Not only will the mouse and pen drain battery life incredibly fast, but you get very poor response from the pen. The pen frequently "jumps" and "jitters.

Nice entry level tablet

B. Richardson "Beat Lover", Amazon
12 February 2006
  • Summary: I have just received my hyper pen 8000 and used it only once. I have read the other reviews and I am skeptical of its performance. However, I also realize the amount of money I spent on this tablet is 5 times cheaper than the Wacom I wanted.

I gots the shakes

W. L. Pierce, Amazon
23 January 2006
  • Summary: I got a refurb model for cheap, so my experience may not be representative to those who're buying new Aipteks, but by far the worst problem I've had with my Hyperpen- worse than the flimsy-feeling pen and mouse, worse than the useless software, worse than the driver that doesn't work until you hunt...

entry level..

Aaron Creagh "siamus", Amazon
6 November 2004
  • Summary: hey..the software that comes with it is garbage..but I wasn't planning on using any of it anyway. I bought this mainly because using a mouse to draw in photoshop and other programs was to time consuming and i needed something more natural, and this does the job.

Don't get this. Get Wacom

Terri Yang, Amazon
9 October 2004
  • Summary: It gets an extra star for pricing, but remember, you get what you paid for. I recently had an Aiptek Hyperpen 9x12... and it was good in the beginning. But after awhile, problems started arising. First the pen cursor would just freeze on the screen no matter where I moved the pen.

Sufficient.

Kate, Amazon
8 July 2004
  • Summary: The tablet itself is good. It's not a Wacom. It's nothing expensive, but for the money you pay for the size of the tablet and the basic functions that go with it it's well worth it. Don't like the software that goes with it? Download GIMP.

1 star is generous for this waste of money

Brett Carlson, Amazon
6 July 2004
  • Summary: After purchasing my Aiptek pen, I noticed it would lose it's pressure sensitivity, and the dpi quoted on the package was not accurate at all. After calling Aiptek customer service I sent it back for repairs.
