5 out of 5 eggsJust the right size for big monitor

Pros: Good quality, smooth install & works great on Vista system with Photoshop, Lightroom, Autodesk SketchBook Pro 2009, among other apps.

Cons: The touch strip location makes it too easy to activate it accidentally by running hand over it. Being right handed, I had to deactivate the right one. I haven't found much use for the included mouse.

Other Thoughts: I use a 30" widescreen at 2560x1600 resolution for photo editing mostly and this is just the right size form my big moniitor. I wouldn't want to go any smaller.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect Size

Pros: I've got to hand it to Wacom. Don't know how they make such a good product and never really seem to disappoint. The 6x8 area of the tablet is perfect for pretty much any use. I don't honestly see why you'd need more space, other than if you're doing extreme detail work. But for mid-level graphic design, illustration, photo-retouching, pretty much anything, this sizeable tablet is indispensible. Pen is a lot more sturdy than my old Wacom tablet, with the nice addition of a grip. The unit is plug-and-play, and works right out of the box. The additional software is nice too. Already have Photoshop CS3, but the Corel painter essentials was a nice touch, it's pretty handy software for illustration. (and admittedly very fun to just play around with.) No loss of synchronization, no lag. Customizable buttons are a VERY handy tool (Got one button set to open up Photoshop, one button is Ctrl-Z, one button is Print-Screen, etc).

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: You will need to install the driver disc to get the full use of the tablet when using Photoshop or Corel, but even just plugging it in lets you use the mouse or pen to navigate and click objects.

5 out of 5 eggsFunctional And FUN!!

Pros: Works great vista took this thing like it was made for it. Fun to play with and works great for photo editing.
Comes with a stylus and a mouse. The tablet recognizes the difference between the pen and the mouse.
The mouse is just like your using it on a mouse pad and the pens curser goes to were ever you place the pen on the tablet

Cons: Getting used to the pen and writing with it.

Other Thoughts: If your profession has anything to do with editing media the free hand tools in this product are un comparable to anything else. If you need a tablet this is the one it get.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent product

Pros: WACOM is a brand that you can trust. I was concerned by the 6"X8" size being too small, however I don't think I would want anything larger. There are a couple of different uses for this pad. I see someone with carpal tunnel being able to enjoy using a computer using this product. I mainly use it for free hand art work but tend to revert back to my old mouse for the point to point clicking.

Cons: None whatsoever

Other Thoughts: I purchased this size because I did a lot of research and many people regretted getting larger ones. I can say that I am happy with this one. I've heard some poor reviews regarding the included mouse. I never used it so can't comment. I have the tablet plugged in and my Logitech mouse plugged in. They don't conflict with each other unless the pen is in contact with the tablet. If the pen is in contact with the tablet the mouse is unusable but the pen seems to work. I am still a mouse guy but love this tablet. Newegg's shipping and cutsomer support rocks as usual.

5 out of 5 eggsUnlimited potential

Pros: - 6x8 is perfect size
- a little more than a year of use and it works just as good as the day i received it
- sleek product design
- ambidextrous use with out reprogramming

Cons: - if i have to say something bad about it, it would have to be the price & the cord... i hate cords

Other Thoughts: With the right software and any little bit of artistic knowledge, the tablet can unleash the creativity within. the tablet's potential is limited only by what you can come up with.
6x8 is the ideal size in my opinion. i also own a 9x12 and the stroke seems a little less natural and a little too exaggerated for comfort. if you are torn between sizes i say go with the 6x8, but this is just my opinion so take it for what it's worth.

5 out of 5 eggsA must have

Pros: Solid hardware, very responsive and extremely accurate. The touch keys can be reassigned to anything you want, including "Cntrl Z" which I use a zillion times. It fits perfect on my desk. Its about the size of the bottom half of a notebook pc. The pen feels great. I can't say anything bad about this product. It is a must have for the serious designer or artist. Makes Illustrator and Photoshop so much more fun to use. No more mouse drawing for me!

Cons: That it doesn't replace my girlfriend.

Other Thoughts: For the price, you simply can not beat it. I actually ordered this from my Academic website due to a small price difference, but newegg is definitely the lowest price you can get unless you have some kind of company/academic discount. It's smooth and the zoom slider and hotkeys are perfect. I can't stress how happy i am with this product.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat you pay is what you get!

Pros: I have owned this tablet for more than 3 years, and to the record this is the only item I have bought that's cost effective. I use this tablet with Corel Painter X and I love the sensitivity transfering from the pencil (stylus) to the media (Painter). I wish I had the money to by the bigger ones or the one that you can draw (literaly) on it; but I am more than happy with it.

Cons: Price hasn't change that much (correct me if I am wrong) since I bought this item. But then again ...(see title).

Other Thoughts: Yes the strip on both top sides can be anoying specialy if you are working on the top side of the drawing pad. However there are some solutions to it:
1- You can disable them.
2- Change functionality.
3- Input only with the pen.
Or
4- Input by tapping.

5 out of 5 eggsGave it a shot, Never looking back

Pros: Very easy to use. Includes a few stylus tips / mouse. A nice fairly large area to work with, its not too big nor is it too small. Very Precise! I was surprized by the level of accuracy you can achieve with this thing...and the pressure sensitivity is great!

Cons: On both the upper corners between the buttons and the drawing surface is a touch sensitive "scroll" area. I notice that if I'm working on the upper right corner of the active area sometimes my hand brushing by it will activate the scroll feature. Slight nuisance, not enough to think the pad is bad in any way.

Other Thoughts: I took a sock and cut the bottom off (where the toes go) and essentually wear it around my hand so that I've got a nice dry surface that glides nicely while I draw. Since working with it for any length of time you can start sticking to it a lil bit (the tablet does warm up a bit). The sock not only makes me feel like a rock star, but also serves a 3rd purpose of keeping the surface clean!
