Summary: My husband was diagnosed with a cyst on his vocal chord and was unable to speak for 3 weeks. We ordered this product to use during this time. The item with picture was listed at $139 with a 90% discount. When we received the confirmation of order email, the item being shipped to us was a car adapter. My husband forwarded the email to Amazon with a complaint. Amazon credited us the amount we paid, but we never received an apology or digital notepad.

Summary: The My Notebook Premium is not well made nor does it have any other redeming qualities. The manuals are very non specific and are not related to the exact product so you have no idea what to download. When you do, the software is not anything to "write" home (or anyone else about) - it was not easy to understand - not for me at least. The pen stopped working right away and overall I would trash this entire thing before keeping it. I am returning it tomorrow!

Summary: Even though the Aiptek My Note Premium Digital Notepad/Tablet seems to be rated by others as a bad purchase, it has been a very easy to use and handy device. I am very impressed with its accuracy and adaptability as a digital tablet. The My Note software isn't the best on the market, but it sure accomplished the transfer of notes into my desktop. And, with a little manipulation, accepted by Open Office and MS Word, what more can be said?
Summary: It dose exactly what the label says. Works fine. The major downside is that it is also a pain in the butt to use. I will say that it works as a excellent input device for pc and it comes with some pretty neat software.
Summary: I purchased this tablet because I develop e-learning and I wanted to have the option to include handwritten annotations, examples etc., into my courses. I got as far as installing the software and I could see that the tablet 'recorded' my sample note, but I can't figure out how to get it out of the tablet. The documentation is absolutely horrible and believe me, I should know since I develop training for a living!
Summary: This is a well made product, but the software is a bit clumsy and does not integrate well. The first set of drivers caused it too crash Microsoft Word. The second drivers worked okay. The software was clumsy. When writing on a document, you could only write on what appeared on your computer screen. You had to then save the writing to the document before you could move down the page. It made it too slow to quickly move through a document in a meeting or other situation.
Summary: I think people tend to lose sight of something when reviewing this tablet and others like it, it's not meant for professional artists. It's not supposed to be compared to a normal tablet like a Wacom. We have a Wacom in our house, I don't use it (it's for the professional here), but I do use this one. I've use it both for drawing while at my computer and while away from it. I prefer it as a normal tablet.
