ICON Loading...

Wacom has made its reputation by making digital tablets so you don't have to use a mouse to draw, which can be rather cumbersome. Now comes an inexpensive pad compatible with so many modern requirements.

If you use hand-writing recognition software, this is for you. If you're a sales outlet that records customers' signatures, this is for you. If you're an artist, you'll appreciate the 512 levels of pressure sensitivity. The stylus requires no batteries, and the pad itself runs off a powered USB port, which also makes it easy to transfer to whatever computer you happen to be working on. The 2450 lines per inch resolution provide enough image clarity for just about any application. If you're mobile, you'll appreciate the small size and portability.

I can't tell you what you need, and you wouldn't believe me if I tried. But I own a Wacom tablet myself, and I like them. If this one meets your needs, this is the place to get it.

  • newegg Personalized Input With the Wacom Bamboo MTE450, create expressive content, personalize your emails with your signature, and sketch and draw with ease! Take advantage of integrated touch ring and 4 user-defined express keys to navigate more freely.
  • newegg Wacom Pen Technology Wacom's battery-free pen delivers 512 levels of pressure sensitivity for natural and precise control. The pen’s two programmable buttons are right at your fingertips for the ultimate ease of use while the ergonomic design prevents injuries to your wrist.

4 out of 5 eggsWait.. Before you buy!

Pros: first of all its Wacom, a great brand indeed! second, its pretty cheap I payed $78 for this and now its 70. Its pretty thin, not heavy at all, and super portable. Pretty great for a first time tablet, works fine and dandy even when you just plug it in, but its safer to install the plugins from the CD you get, just saying. *Read Other thoughts*

Cons: Pretty small active area that takes adjusting to, nothing big. Pen is "sketchy" to say the least. LOL. Pen holder is small, and kinda feels cheap. Oh! Smudges, cant even begin to describe it. Its pretty bad. If you have oily hands or something, you'll most likely leave a mark. & If you're like me, with your keyboard and monitor in front of you, you might have to move the keyboard to make room for this, so small desks; BEWARE!

Other Thoughts: I'm uber mad at the fact that, I bought this for around > $80, and now its $70?? what the heck? Hold on, it gets better! 2-3 months later, Wacom releases a newer tablet, costs about $100 and has finger-touch & Pen capabilities, oh em gee-dude! i'm thinking about selling this to my friend so i can get the new one. hehe

Wait till you have enough for that $100 bamboo touch and pen, you'll thank me later! Seriously!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for me

Pros: User-friendly, easy setup, price, quality.
Great for the hobbist or someone looking for an entry-level tablet. Wacom makes awesome stuff and for this price you can't beat the quality.
As always Newegg shipped very fast.

Cons: size and average pressure sensitivity, but that was expected so not really a con to me.

Other Thoughts: Not really for professional use, this thing is great for me as a hobbist, and it functions very well, I just feel that at a higher level the size and average sensitivity wouldn't be enough.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product, Well Made

Pros: As far as tablets go this one is well designed and has a lot of nice features for a very reasonable price. I'm a Web Designer and also do a lot of Graphic Design and this has definitely made my life easier. I've wanted to make the jump to a tablet for a while, but the price has always been an issue. When I saw this I thought it would be a great first jump for me into the technology.

I like that the four buttons on the pad and the two on the pen can be reprogrammed to whatever keystrokes I want; making my own shortcuts has really increased my work flow. I can do a lot of work without even using my keyboard. The Zoom and Scroll features on the circular part of the tablet are nice too; again this makes things flow faster. There is also an eraser on the end of the pen which is a pretty cool idea. A lot of design programs like Photoshop come with special features for tablets so it's been fun learning all the new design tricks you can perform with the pen.

Cons: The pad is a bit small for me, but I use two monitors and it still works well. It takes a bit to get used to the sensitivity of the pen tip but after a little practice I'm really getting the hang of everything.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great product. It performs great, it's made well and even looks nice. If you're looking to take the first steps in designing with a tablet this is a great introduction. My work looks better and I'm getting it done a lot faster. Now that I've used this I'm confident in upgrading to a full Intuos tablet.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat entry level tablet

Pros: Looks great. Plug n play. Good size. Comes with pen. No problems.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If you are interested in buying a tablet, have never used one, or just aren't sure if you'd use it much, this is it. This is perfect, the price is great and the quality is of course, high. Wacom is the industry standard and even their entry level shows it.

5 out of 5 eggsperfect for small home business

Pros: The Wacom Bamboo is quite affordable and just as capable as it's more expensive counterparts at doing exactly what it is designed for. Solid construction (though I still wouldn't recommend dropping it) and convenient size does not take up a lot of valuable desktop real estate. Programmable button come it hand.

Cons: Windows Vista and 7 both recognize the tablet and install generic drivers. However, to get the full functionality of the table isntall the drivers from Wacom. The generic drivers do not enable the programable buttons or configure the size of the tablet surface in relation to your screen size.

Other Thoughts: I have a home based photography business, and was looking for an inexpensive tablet that would work with Photoshop to allow me to edit digital images. The Wacom Bamboo works perfectly. I had read reviews that the more expensive, but similarly sized Bamboo Fun which comes with a mouse shipped with a cheap mouse. I didn't really want a mouse, so chose this model instead. I have absolutely no regrets about that decision. The Bamboo has sped up my image editing so much quicker than using my laser mouse, and is much more precise. I'd buy this item again in a second!

4 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: Solid, accurate, easy to use.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: This is a fantastic product. I have not used other digital tablets so I have nothing to compare it to. However, it is very slick looking and works very well. It even works with the latest Ubuntu right out of the box. If you need a bigger bad this may not work for you but I can't imagine not being able to do everything you need to on this.

4 out of 5 eggsGood

Pros: Great for using as a mouse and doing handwriting in windows vista and 7.

Cons: Pen seems like it would be easy to loose. Handwriting in office you have to buy software

Other Thoughts: I have nothing to do with photography. I did not buy it with that in mind. I bought it to hand written notes and it works perfectly windows 7 the word recognition software works great. I have extremely messy handwriting and it gets every word i write perfectly.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Tablet!

Pros: A great product, does everything you want it to. I'm not a professional artist, but I understand what is needed to get your work done. This has worked perfectly for me. I have drew a couple of pictures on it and the pressure sensing is fabulous! I haven't had any errors so far.

Cons: In vista it can be a bit delayed...

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I was looking for

Pros: Price, Quality, Ease of use, Performance. Overall, very good product.

Cons: None I can think of

Other Thoughts: This is my first tablet and I am very pleased. This tablet does what you think it would and does a good job at it. I originally thought the drawing surface was a bit small but when you actually use it, its pretty big.
