Review: Genius MousePen i608 pen tablet

 

The MousePen i608 graphics tablet's basic drawing functionality is good enough that it's worth considering if you're on a tight budget, want a spacious work surface, and don't care about a mouse or bundled software.

First the good news. The MousePen’s pen offers 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity—the same as most of Wacom’s models—and works well in graphics applications such as Photoshop Elements. The tablet’s drawing area is surrounded by 29 small shortcut keys...

Genius MousePen i608 Tablet

 

Price, Reasonably effective alternative to Wacom’s inductive tracking technology, Active area is spacious, and soft-keys are plentiful

Too many to list, but nothing is a deal-breaker

Genius I608 Graphics Tablet

 

We were initially scared off by the inexpensive price but took a chance after reading many reviews. We made the right choice.

After downloading the latest driver and dual screen add-on we plugged this in and found a tablet every bit as good as the Wacom Intuous it replaced. The components are not flimsy and work very well. My wife is a PhotoShop and Painter user and says the...

Limited Function

 

This device works well for the price. I was suprised at how handy the added mouse becomes. The shortcut buttons are nice and the pen feels comfortable and precise

The pen will not transfer between two displays. The settings for the extent of usable area do not include an expanded desktop

Happy

 

If you pay more, you better have a good reason.

Works perfectly. I learned computer with a tablet before ever using a mouse, oh so many years ago. I recently started doing artwork again and needed a tablet. I liked the high LPI this has, and the size sounded just right. It is beautifully smooth and...

It's slender, It's light weight, It looks and feels quality. Ooops, those are are pluses
