4 out of 5 eggsWorks well for Notes and Math

Pros: Sturdy unit that has held up to quite a bit of abuse and punishment. It has not let me down and is still as good as the day it was purchased. Several updates have come out and the unit has only gotten better with time and use.

Cons: To start it was a bit sensitive and the Touch capability was really annoying when doing the problems for the online class. As the updates were done, the unit has gotten better and I can see where this would be good for someone who is learning Photoshop as well. For now the Touch capability is more of an annoyance when the cat steps on the unit and turns it on.

Other Thoughts: Over all I'm very satisfied with this and would recommend anyone who is looking to start any type of art and/or Math Class that Requires you to show work. It does get some getting use to, but if you practice it actually becomes a very nice and useful tool for your system.

5 out of 5 eggsBack to Nature

and you can input with handwriting, even sloppy handwriting, and for you keyboard challenged folk, What Fun is that?
Ergonomically the BEST input device - Humans evolved to hang onto things branches so we didn't fall from the trees, sticks for hard to reach food, rocks, clubs, swords, even guns are sticks we point. Pick up a stick, hold it, swing it, write with it, see, natural. Pen tablets let us input the way our bodies are designed to do, holding a stick.
and the art you can do is a lot of fun (and mistakes so painlessly done away with)

Cons: There is a learning curve, until you get the eye hand coord up to snuff. You just forget you had to do that with your mouse. A tad frustrating, yes, just keep repeating the same motions over and over, try hitting the four corners of you screen, first looking at the screen and tablet, then less so, then not. Repeat starting and stopping a program. Etc. 5 mins at each once a day and you'll be a pro in no time.

Other Thoughts: Billions in surgery and untold pain and suffering could be saved by people switching to pen tablets. Health Insurance cos. should give rebates to users. Ultimately, it's faster too (because it works off our 100,000 yr old ingrained instincts) Corporations should give a day off if you learn how to use it. Etc..
Why don't they, because a mouse is $10, this is $90 and every business only cares for the bottom line how much can the CEO and minions pocket next quarter.

3 out of 5 eggsBamboo

Pros: It works, and you can draw on it.

Cons: Product is very misleading. What looks like drawable area is actually much smaller. Feels a little awkward, and had a learning curve compared to a wacom.

Other Thoughts: Not bad for a beginner, but if you're a pro, you won't be happy with this unless you rarely use it.

4 out of 5 eggsPerfect for Students

Pros: Use it mostly for OneNote to illustrate diagrams and formulas. Get the wireless accessory kit if you do buy thought because it makes it that much easier.

Cons: Wish the side buttons could perform program specific functions when using that program (ex. Switch between pen and highlighter in OneNote)

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome little tablet

Pros: Very good tactile feedback with pen
awesome amount of pressure sensitivity
Very smooth and easy to run fingers along
nice touch on/off button standard
left and right click buttons
small and lightweight
perfect length cable

Cons: Touch area is smaller than pen area (not enough to knock off an egg as it is less than a hundred bucks)

Other Thoughts: I have recently been trying to do away with using mice and I won this at an Adobe class so I have been using it to replace a mouse. I use mainly my hand, but I will use the pen in illustrator a lot along with photoshop. the touch gestures are really nice and provide a much easier interface option. I love the fact that this thing is so small I can just slide it onto my desk and ignore it if I don't want to use it, it provides really good feedback time in my experience and is overall a really nice product to use.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Tablet

Pros: Great tactile feel, relatively small so it can fit easily in a 15" laptop carry bag or backpack. Thin, light, ergonomic, and expandable.

Cons: Pen does not have an eraser (get the LP140ES if you want that). Wireless module is sold separately. Does not come with a case.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great bargain tablet with a response and accuracy equivalent to the older Intous 3 series. The pen tips wear, true, but much slower than say a real pen or pencil would (thank goodness). Never the less, the contact and feel for light or hard pressure, is spot on and therefore requires the friction that wears out the tips eventually. While some complain about burning through tips, I've never had that problem however I use these for design drawings, not artistic painting with a lot of repetitious scrubbing.

Overall I am very happy with the package. I purchased the wireless module (which also works great), and the aforementioned LP170ES pen which works perfectly in OS X and in Windows on a dual boot MacBook Pro retina.

2 out of 5 eggsOh boy

Pros: Its a solid little unit. Well designed. neat texture on the buttons. It works well as a giant touch pad.

Cons: I bought a Intuos4 several years ago that I was super happy with, but the mouse broke and doesn't work well with windows 8. So I opted to get a new cheaper version, and the Bamboo Create seemed like a good option.
The cord is a joke. The intuos came with like 3 cords, all of them were like 6 feet long. The bamboo comes with one stubby cord, I can barely use the device without buying their wireless system.
The pen takes a irritating amount of time to respond to a swipe.
A bunch of bloat wear comes with it. Why can't companies just give us the driver and forget about all the other stuff we don't want. I don't want your weak apps.

I'll probably return this. grr

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Tablet

Pros: - Packaging was very professional, unboxing it was half the fun, aha.
- Very simple to setup and install, no issues with drivers or anything like that.
- The features that come with this tablet and the advanced preferences really allow you to make this tablet your own, the possibilities are endless.
- The cord length was perfect, it also comes with extra pen tips.
- I thought the pen holder strap on the side was nifty, definitely a plus when it comes to storage.
- It comes with Sketch Book Express (on a disk you can optionally install), which I thought was great in case you don't have a drawing program yet; you're fairly good to get into graphics right out of the box!
- Overall I've been using this on and off for the past few months, and everything has been perfectly stable, both the software and the product itself, I see this tablet lasting me many years to come.

Cons: - The nibs are pretty tough for the tablet itself, but I see no reason for a beginner to go out of their way to get some fancy pen tips; just use what you've got.

Other Thoughts: - For what it is, I find it hard to be disappointed with this product, it's truly great. I've seen some reviews list cons such as 'not slipper enough for finger use', well, if you wash your hands and aren't sweating, you shouldn't have a problem. I've also read about some driver issues and what not, and to say the least, if your computer is healthy, virus free, and up to date, you're not going to have a problem installing and setting up this tablet, there's no doubt. Definitely worth buying, hands down, I would recommend this to anyone wanting to get into tablet drawing/designing.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst piece of junk ever

Pros: Still haven't been able to get one of these devices to work so I can't list any pros

Cons: Tablet has never worked. Talking to Wacom tech support is like talking to an alien. The cord is embarasingly small, go ahead and tac on another $5 USB extension cord if you plan to use this device with any amount of comfort. I can't possibly explain how dissatisfied with this purchase I was. 3 weeks after delivery and $30 later, I still don't have what I ordered. Since I haven't been able to use the product I can't comment on it's workability but it feels very cheap, lightweight and a lot smaller than expected. This comment form doesn't have an option for 0 eggs so I reluctantly had to give it 1. Sigh..

Other Thoughts: $15 return shipping makes online ordering a real inconvenience. I'm a little suprised that Newegg doesn't pay return shipping fees (especially for something that is out of my control)

1 out of 5 eggsGlitchy

Pros: Detected by various systems I've tried, but you can only adapt things like orientation with the driver installed.

Problem is, the driver is horrible horrible bloatware.

Cons: Actual touch area significantly smaller than you'd expect.

Finger use: Not slippery enough.

Pen use: Easy to accidentally click the wrong thing.

Driver: Bloatware; It suggested an update was available so I went for it and it turned out breaking itself. Had to reinstall the old driver.
