It is very easy and fun to use!

I tried installing the driver on the CD, and then when that didn't work, I tried installing the driver from the website.

Most tablets out there, the good ones, go for well over $200. VisTablet's vTen pad is cheaper than most, and you get more for your money. Compared to most other offname brands out there, VisTablet does an excellent job with their products, making them durable enough for travel.

It's only 6x4.5, but for screens under 19'', unless you're looking for more precision v.s. screen size, that's all you'll need. I love this tablet, and it works really well for the digital art that I like to do.

Of course, the software needed for actual creation of art work is more expensive than the tablet if you buy the professional versions, but there are some free alternatives for certain products.

VisTablet does a good job with the vTen pad, and it could be a lot more expensive for all you get with it. The pen that comes with if feels a bit cheap, but getting a differently designed pen is simple enough, and not very expensive.

Well worth the price I paid for it, and while it's not a "professional" tablet, you could probably get similar results if you know what you are doing.

I wouldn't recommend shoving this in a backpack though, it flops like a mouse pad, and needs a hard surface if you don't want to screw up. Shove it in a backpack without stowing it right and you could ruin it. (I haven't actually done that though, I don't want to have to pay for another if I don't have to.) However, if I did break this one, I would buy another one.

Also, the pen is cheap feeling, and breaks easily. You might want to replace it with the pen from the original Tablet from Vistablet.

People might tend to dismiss this tablet for drawing ditially or other uses because it is not a big brand name, but surprisingly enough it does work and very well.

It is flexible, and easily portable. It comes with its USB cable, pen and a digital drawing software that also works well for photos called Artweaver. It is basically a Photoshop 7 clone program that is quite good, and does allow to create almost any image you want, is more user friendly to the general public than Photoshop, has lots of filters, and you can download updates. The disk includes other software titles for those interested in creating documents using their own hadwritting.

The pen is not heavy, easy to write and handle, it comes with a AAA battery, which dosen't lasts too long so I'd recommend using alkaline batteries.
Overall is a very nice product that does what it promises without high price tags and without much complication installing.
Highly recommended.

VisTablet PenPad Graphics Tablet 80-914W04090-000v1.0 (Black) is well made and my Children love it. I bought two of these tablets for my children to used to draw Anime. The tablet is easy to use and you can used it with your MS Paint and it comes with a disk so you can choose what software to download. The drawing pen comes with a battery in the packaging and the battery is easy to install. You will need to install the software first, then, set the tablet and pen settings to your preferred sensitivity settings.

I'm glad I ignored the negative reviews about the PenPad. One of the cons in this site is that the pen "comes apart in several pieces" when the barrels are separated to replace the battery. The pen I received consisted of just 3 pieces. The lower barrel where the nib and the electronics are housed, the screw-on upper barrel, and a piece (spacer) that slips into the upper barrel. Installing the AAA battery is actually quite straightforward.

Another con was written about the extremely short life of the battery. I did not install the battery that came with my pad but installed a Sunbeam alkaline battery, the kind that is sold in packs of 4 for $1.00 US. These batteries are rated at 1200 mA Hr. The actual current draw of the pen that came with my pad is 0.12mA under all conditions of normal use: with the pen at rest next to or away from the pad, or with the nib actually touching or drawing on the pad. The life of a fresh battery (mine started out at 1.56 Volts) should be somewhere in the neighborhood of 1200/.12 or 10,000 hours, that's 416 days! I don't want to wait that long before posting so at this point after one full month of use, the pen is still going strong and the battery is at 1.485 Volts. If the battery needs to be replaced tomorrow, I'd still be pleased with its one month of service for $0.25. Also I am very pleased with all facets of the performance of the PenPad. My main use has been to edit photos in Photoshop and the pen makes selection tasks a breeze when compared to the mouse. I've also used the pen to draw rough sketches in Outlook and Word. The ability to chose among line widths and colors is very useful. I've not used a Wacom or other high-end tablet so I have no basis to compare the PenPad against a more expensive unit, but I can't see how its functionality could be much improved.

I used to be a graphic designer before I stopped working to stay home with my kids. Recently a friend asked me to a create a "doodley" business card for her coffee shop. I tried to plug my super-old Wacom tablet in to my Macbook and realized it didn't work because of the new processor in the Mac (yes, the tablet was really old). Anyway, I decided I kind of miss having a tablet but didn't want to spend a lot of money. So I bought this with a LOT of doubts. However, I know Amazon has a great return policy so I was willing to give it a try.

I actually really like it. At first, I thought I would have to return it because it wasn't working correctly with Photoshop but then I went to the company's website and downloaded the driver and now it works fine. I haven't tried any photo retouching or anything but I have used it in Illustrator and I'm impressed with what it can do for the price. It's not Wacom, and if I was trying to be a real designer again I wouldn't have gone with the cheaper product.

There are a few cons: It uses a battery in the pen. This is annoying but I can buy a lot of batteries for the money I saved buying this tablet rather than Wacom. The pen also doesn't have an eraser. The writing pad is flexible like a mouse pad- this doesn't really bother me when I'm using it but it's just not what I'm used to; so for some people this might not be a con. It's not very big but I'm not using it on a huge monitor and the size makes it more portable.

So, all things considered I like this tablet. It's not amazing or anything, just functional and good enough considering the low cost.
