I ran this in Photoshop CS5 and found that is assimilates perfectly as a drawing tool--new users who are considering this shouldn't be the slightest bit concerned that incorporating a tablet into their Photoshop, Corel, etc. apps will be buggy or requires lots of advanced setup. Nope, it works just how you hope it will. (New users should be prepared for the "weird" sensation of drawing on a tablet while looking at a screen; a pen is not a mouse, and you can't lift and reposition it while maintaining stationary cursor placement like a mouse. The tablet is the equivalent to your screen. Advanced tablet users know all of this.)
This tablet isn't as sensitive as Wacom's more elite models; it detects 1,024 levels of pressure which is VERY good for nearly any use, but the higher-end tablets support up to twice that. I'm an artist, though, and to be honest I haven't yet found the case where the difference has been critical. The tablet is lightweight and easy to hold or carry. The surface is a glassy-feeling plastic that feels natural; one criticism would be that it sense the pen too easily sometimes, so trying to carefully place the pen slowly to the surface might result in a "misfire" when the tablet reads it as intended pen action too soon.
For fun, there are a few games that come with it, but they're not impressive. Doodle on a world map; draw on the Mona Lisa; use the pen to play a rudimentary physics game...meh. Let's be honest: this is a "fun" tablet, but the games aren't actually why you'd want this. At the root of it, this is a tablet for people who want to do things a tablet will let them do (draw, design, and place design items) at a much more affordable price than the higher-end tablets. And once we settle on that, this does just fine. For those who want to do all of these things but don't have full-blown Photoshop, never fear--this includes Adobe "elements" (which does what most peopel need Photoshop to do, without the fancy extras), Corel Painter Essentials, and Autodesk Sketchbook Express. Between each of these, you have a fantastic range of filters, tools, and effects that work extremely well. I haven't had a single bug yet in Mac, and I've run this in Parallels 7 Windows XP on my Mac with fine results there, too. Be careful not to rely on writing-to-text, though; even though the tablet claims to offer this feature, it's not exactly accurate.
Disclaimer: I'm an oils and traditional painter at heart, so my approach to digital art is pretty straightforward (one layer and all that)
pros: huge active area for the price, sturdy high-quality build, comes with extra nibs
cons: software is annoying
I was amazed that there exists a tablet this size for $120! The extra space is super nice for detailing, and just everything involving smooth lines and curves. Pressure sensitivity doesn't measure up to wacom's higher-end tablets, but as a heavy user of photoshop's hard round brush that isn't missed. Another feature I can't say much for is touch functionality-- maybe that's also my preference, but it's not worth the effort. Too many accidental activations and whoops, I've rotated the canvas and have to save/close/reopen the document to set it straight again. The hotkeys though are pretty nice. I find it more comfortable to hit the one-key (like i for eyedropper and b for brush) shortcuts on my keyboard, but for stuff like ctrl+s it's worth reaching for the hard button.
However, I do have to complain about the drivers a bit-- they're very ornery, requiring fresh installation every time I reboot my computer or even sometimes unplug the tablet. I just keep the pentablet.dmg on my desktop at this point! This also resets my preferences for Bamboo Dock (do not open on startup!!) so I have to deal with closing that constantly. I find the dock entirely useless, so maybe a pure driver would be better. Of course the issue is one I can probably solve more permanently if I just sit down and mess with it, but that shouldn't be necessary.
Still, this tablet meets expectations for painting, and the larger size even makes it easier to lay down sketches (usually non-touchscreen tablets can't match up to just drawing on paper), so I'm very happy. Wish I could have started on this tablet!
With that I found this tablet, and although I bought it refurbished (it also came with a warranty!), I'm so very happy that I did.
This tablet without a doubt is better than all the tablets I've had to date. For such a cheap tablet (and refurbished) I was expecting an average experience.
The things that made me smile.
Unlike most tablets that I've had, when you install the Wacom tablet there is a thing called Wacom Preferences where you can personalize the Wacom to your absolute liking. You can change the hot keys, change your tablet to make it suite which ever had you draw with (right or left), pressure settings, and so on and so on.
And with that, there's also the touch feature sort of like a smart phone. Basically you can use your tablets as mouse and a keyboard. Or you can turn it off it you don't like it.
But I think my favorite thing is the pen! The pen has an eraser at the top. I know that sounds insignificant but with other pens there is no eraser top and you have to constantly switch between the brush setting and the eraser setting.
And then you have Wacom Preferences File Utility which let's you back up, remove, and restore settings.
With that, I don't think I'll return to other tablets.
