The problem with this tablet is that they took all the cool features from the previous models that separated Wacom products from other tablet makers, and threw them out the window. They took the eraser off the pen, which I didn't think was a big deal, until I realized how dependent I was on it. They also took away the scroll wheel and buttons on the actual tablet. They also changed the USB cable, which really isn't too big of a deal. But the problem I have with this tablet is that they didn't ADD anything! They increased the pressure sensitivity and took away everything else. And raised the price. I didn't bother to check the dimensions of the tablet area, assuming that you would be able to use all of the light grey area. I was wrong, the picture is deceiving. Only about half of the area is usable.
So what it comes down to is that this a good tablet for drawing, the pressure sensitivity works well and it has a good feel. But it's a complete downgrade from other bamboo products, like the MTE450A and older Bamboo Fun's. I would suggest researching them before making a decision, you can probably find them at the same price or cheaper than this tablet, while getting much more functionality.
The Wacom Bamboo Connect is easy to use for sketching, marking up your overhead presentations while sharing info with others in a new and interesting way. It takes the emphasis off the presenter and makes the group focus more on the presentation I found. It's easy to use, has lots of useful software applications allowing you to put your personal style on your presentations. Useful for teachers, and a great doodle tool as well. Bamboo Connect is compatible with both PC and Mac. RECOMMENDED!
Rather than simply re-list the features of each, I'd suggest just going to each product description, seeing what you need, and making a choice. If you want more features, spend the higher amount, and be comfortable that you'll be getting a very nice product. But if your needs don't demand such a feature-rich product, you can very comfortably get this smaller model and not have to be afraid that you'll be getting a cheap toy version of the larger one. This one appears to be the same quality, is very easy to install, and almost equally easy to learn to use - and that's coming from my wife who is sometimes a bit intimidated when installing and learning to use new programs by herself. She never had to come ask me to help her with it once.
Again - compare the features between this and the larger, more sophisticated machines, and feel confident that whichever Bamboo product you get, you're likely to be quite satisfied as long as your needs are matched by the features.
