5 weeks in and it stopped working correctly

 

i love art in all forms and i enjoy drawing artwork this tablet is a wonderfull buy if your just trying to start out

worked great for 33 days,

after i got home from work literally a little over a month the tablet stopped recognizing pressure sensitivity. wich made the tablet quite useless for art. im currently trying to contact the customer support for a replacement

Great Tablet!

 

This tablet is very fun and easy to use. Setup is very simple (plug in, install drivers, ready to go!) The price wasn't bad. Also the software that came with it was nice, but I needed something with a bit more depth so I purchased Autodesk Sketchbook Pro.

Works Sometimes

 

When it wants to work it does good

A lot of the time it will randomly draw horribly. The tablet will work, but the lines are very jagged, rough, and bumpy even when i do the smoothest line I can and I can not figure out why for my life it does this. The cord is HORRIBLY small and barely...

Nice beginner's tablet

 

We bought this graphics tablet for my wife. She's been an artist for years, but has not owned a tablet since around 2004, and she wanted to get back into digital work. The tablet is fantastic, and it's like drawing on a small-format sketchbook. The...

*Easy to install *Excellent price -- I got it on sale, but even without the sale, the price was pretty good. *Light on resources *Free full-use graphics software included -- we own an Adobe suite, and the tablet works really well with it, but the free...

*The pen is too big for the wife's hand. She is used to drawing with regular pens, pencils, and smaller artist's paintbrushes. The pen that the Splash comes with is about the same size as one of those pens that has 4 different colours in it. *The cord...

Fantastic Item

 

I bought this for an aspiring young artist in our family and she is able to sketch using this in the same or better quality than she can on paper. She is able to effortlessly zoom in on edges and small areas for finely detailed work that I would think,...

This device is so accurate and smooth that it is as like drawing on paper, maybe better.

There are no cons that the artist I bought this for has commented upon other than she did have issues with "pressure sensitivity," as she put it, but that turned out to be an issue in the operating system and not in the device. The information to...

Very nice unit

 

I have had several tablets in the past, but this is by far the nicest and most responsive. The driver install could be a bit cleaner. I use dual monitors and only wanted the tablet to respond to the second monitor. Once I figured out where the setting...

Fantastic for the price!

 

Works under Linux with mypaint, inkscape, GIMP, and others. I'm using Ubuntu. Pressure sensitive pen works like a charm. Seriously, this is the bomb for those of us that know how to use graphics programs and wish to manipulate scans and pics.

Awesome

 

Bought this for my girlfriend and she has been using it every day. She is very happy with this product and has had no issues with it thus far. :)

None at the moment.

Works

 

Because I'm new it's probably just me, but I tend to rotate paper and such while drawing. But the tablet does not know its orientation so it takes a little hand eye coordination.

This is my first tablet, I'm a graphic designer and have been wanting to try one for a while and when I saw the bamboo on sale I thought I'd give it a try. I like the texture of the tablet, it feels nice on my had. it's a reasonable size. I haven't had...

The buttons on the pen, I still accidently push them which can be annoying.
