Product Description

Color: Silver

From the Manufacturer

Pen tablets have been around for some time. Not until recently have they become affordable to the general public. They were primarily used by professionals in the graphic art and photo industries. VisTablet allows you to explore the internet, draw, paint, write, highlight, and do professional or home photo editing. VisTablet also opens up advanced pen features available in all the new Microsoft Office Operating Systems and Mac Operating Systems. Through electro-magnetic induction, information is exchanged between the pen and the tablet while your movements are translated to your computer screen. With no stand-alone power supply required, the VisTablet is a great choice for portable computers as well as desktop PC’s. VisTablet will open up the world of design to you in ways that were previously either too expensive or too limiting. VisTablet is the new standard in graphics tablets.

Where is the tablet used?

Tablets are not only used for drawing or tracing, they also function like a mouse to interface with your computer's operating system. Use the pen on the tablet to control your on-screen cursor, move it to a desired location, and click! Vista's new ink input functions in Microsoft Office greatly extend the features of your software and the VisTablet can make those features accessible. The comfort, precision, and ergonomics of the pen tablet simply cannot be matched.

Pressure sensitivity

Pen sensitivity is a very important for professional artists. The more you press the pen down the wider the brush stroke will get. VisTablet currently has 1,024 pen sensitivity levels. That matches tablets at twice the price.

Thin is IN!

The VisTablet is a solid piece of hardware. While we do not recommend you attempt to flex your tablet, you can confidently stow it behind your laptop in most large slip-cases without even knowing it’s there.

Finally, affordable tablets

The VisTablet belongs in the professional class of graphics tablets but its price makes it accessible to everyone. VisTablet is the new standard. With high surface-area-to-cost ratios you can finally add a tablet peripheral to your computer system.

Key Features

  • Large surface area: 12.1-inch widescreen tracing surface
  • Extremely thin design for portability
  • 29 customizable macro fields
  • Fully compatible with Adobe Photoshop, Corel Painter as well as 100s of other major software applications.
  • System Requirements: Microsoft Windows Vista, Windows XP (SP 2), Windows 7, and Apple OSX (10.3 or later).
  • Special features in Windows Vista: pen flick navigation, handwriting recognition, email signing, etc.
  • 2 Year Warranty and U.S. backed technical support

Normally, I don't review products.

Plugged in the tablet, and it worked great on my primary monitor, then after I installed the driver, worked great on both.

I tried it a few times, but it's much easier to draw with my mouse than use this.

I own both this tablet and the wacom bamboo, so this is more a comparison than a proper review.

First, I would like to rebut some things said here, which may have been based on an older version of the driver/hardware, or maybe were just wrong. The most recent version of the driver (3.32) supports both relative as well as absolution positioning. It works on multiple displays, (I have two 1600x1200, displays one in landscape mode) and the driver software lets you select just a portion of your display for absolute positioning, and/or a portion of the tablet as the active region.

That said, the configuration options can be a little buggy, but once set the tablet works as configured.

The tablet's X,Y tracking is smooth, fast and precise, I don't notice a difference between it and the bamboo. I did the same thing another reviewer did, and used a straightedge to check and see if the digitizer was straight. I got nice parallel lines. Maybe, he was using something more precise than me, but I am fairly happy with the X,Y behavior. It works fantastically for handwriting recognition, basic drawing, and as a mouse replacement. Others, have said the response time was slower, but I didn't notice any difference, even with a lot of repetitive sketching type stroke action. That said, if you really go at it, both pads tend to lag slightly even on a fairly fast machine. The lag is noticeable after a lot of very rapid hashing when I lift the pen it continues for ~1/10 of a second. This is possibly the application and not the pad.

That said, the Z axis pressure sensitivity isn't to my liking. The pen tip has a very noticeable spring action and deflects a few millimeters into the pen body as pressure is applied. Using the pen control panel it seems pretty linear and reliable.

This tablet is okay for what it is, but don't expect the quality and flexibility of more reliable brands.

Let me start by saying that I *really* wanted this tablet to be awesome, as a cheap alternative to Wacom, despite the fact that the company is obviously marketing the tablet through 'customer' reviews (see above). I'm trying to build my own Cintiq-style tablet from a tablet and an LCD monitor, so durability of the casing and appearance don't really matter to me. Those weren't the only problems, however.

First, even the fine print is a little misleading: the true active area on this tablet is 9.5" by 5.5". The 10x6.25 figure includes the massive ring of buttons around the drawing area, which is not active for drawing, only for hitting those buttons.

I could live with that, because I don't need a huge tablet. However, after installing the drivers I noticed that performance is sluggish if you're doing anything more than waving your mouse around the desktop. Do not attempt this tablet with any kind of gaming; you will get pwned.

As an art tablet, the VisTablet still has some drawbacks. It is jumpy at times, and the software provided gives you little to no customization: you cannot specify, for example, how much screen area the tablet should control, or which monitor in a dual monitor setup you want to work in: the tablet will automatically span your full system resolution, meaning the higher resolution your system (especially dual monitor systems) the sloppier the tablet performs. These features are standard in Wacom drivers. What gives?

Then pen itself feels hollow, and requires a battery (unlike other brands). While the specifications suggest that the software detects pen tilt, I see no evidence of that either in Photoshop, or in some software I have to pull the pen data from the OS.

I gave it two stars out of pity, but frankly your money is better spent elsewhere.

My daughter just purchased this product with money she saved from Christmas. Upon installing the driver for it (most recent one from website v3.32), it worked exactly as described with one problem unrelated to actually using the tablet. It would interfere with some of the CD-ROM games installed on the computer. Certain of the games would freeze up upon opening, but would go back to playing normally when the driver was uninstalled. I called Vistablet tech support and was able to talk with a tech support that spoke English as a first language and who was extremely nice and helpful. The problem was solved with them sending me a "gaming driver" that is identical in all respects to the "normal" driver with the exception of having an added option available to "quit" the driver by simply right-clicking the icon on the taskbar. Once I used that feature, the games worked as they always did. Problem solved.

Since this is the first tablet we have owned, and my daughter is just becoming involved in that aspect of graphics, we have no other experiences with tablets to compare this to, however, we have found that it is simple and easy to work with, it is easy to draw with as well as use the "mouse" features, and works well with our graphics program. Certainly, for the money we spent, it has been well worth it, and I would certainly recommend this tablet to others.

I am a web/graphic designer and I own a Wacom Intuos 3 that I use extensively at home. I have frequent wrist problems and use the tablet has a replacement for my mouse. At home, I use the tablet 95% of the time and my mouse the other 5%. Lugging my Intuos to work and home again became tiring so I purchased the VisTablet for work. I was curious about the VisTablet and was hoping it would be a viable alternative to the more expensive Wacom tablets.

When I first opened the box, I was impressed by the size, which was considerably smaller then the Intuos 3 while still having a comparable working surface. After the initial positive impression, I encountered many things that altered my opinion of the VisTablet. The pen is the first problem. I think it is very poorly designed. As someone with wrist issues, it is very uncomfortable to use for more then 5-10 minutes. It is made of smooth plastic and has a streamlined shape - which looks good but means my hand slips on the plastic when using it all day. It causes me to grip the pen tighter, causing wrist pain. (The Wacom pen has a rubberized coating and a shoulder near the tip that prevents slipping when using the pen.) I looked on the VisTablet website for other pen options but the only alternative I found was the same design in a different color. I resorted to wrapping a self-adhesive bandage around the barrel of the pen so I could actually use it. The battery in the top of the pen also causes it to feel top heavy, but you get used to that.

Another issue with the pen is the spring-action when using it. You need to press the pen firmly to the surface to register a click, which means I am gripping the pen even tighter, which means more wrist pain. Something else that may seem minor is the function of the double-click button.
