I dislike using Windows and Mac OSes, so I can't say anything about the software included with the tablet. I've been using Inkscape (vector graphics software), GIMP (raster graphics software), Mypaint (raster graphics software with brushes that mimic traditional mediums such as sketching pencils, paintbrushes, oil sticks and others), and Aseprite (sprite/animation software) all of which are free and open source. I'm using Arch Linux (x86_64) and installed the drivers by installing libwacom and xf86-input-wacom. I was able to use the tablet as soon as they were done installing with the complete pressure sensitivity. It's set up by default to utilize absolute pointing (the top left of the tablet is the top left of the screen vs relative, which is like a laptop's touchpad.) I don't have a need to change it to a relative pointer, so I haven't looked into where the settings to change that would be located.Read more ›
The writing surface of this tablet is very rough. Writing on it is similar to writing on construction paper with a very hard leaded pencil (for the artists out there). As a result, very fine, small movements are not very easy. The roughness also makes a lot of noise.
This tablet also lacks the erase feature found on most other Wacom tablets. This was one of my favorite features in my previous tablet, and I was sad not to see it in this tablet.
The pressure sensitivity seems to be pretty low for this model as well. Even with the settings adjusted to try and compensate (changing the "feel" to "soft" in the settings menu), it requires a definite pressure to activate the pen. My previous tablet would accept really fine swipes with no issues.
The only positive aspects to this product is that the USB cable physically plugs into the tablet instead of a cord hanging off permanently. This is nice because you can place it in your backpack or laptop case without worrying about ruining the
In all, I will be returning this tablet and trying to find a copy of my last one to replace it. It's not worth the money for a substandard product.
A lot of things about this tablet are not immediately apparent, so I'll start with the things that tripped me up the most. This tablet DOES NOT HAVE touch capability. I'm okay with that since I'd rather use the pen anyway, but the tutorial that comes with the Bamboo Dock makes reference to this capability, which other Bamboo tablets have, apparently, but not this one. The Bamboo Dock worth installing, and not just for all the free little games and apps that come with it. (Such timewasters! I can't help but be sucked in!) The tutorial is helpful, but only after you realize that this tablet doesn't do anything if you tap it and so forth. To find the full User's Manual, which includes specs and details on all the Bamboo tablets, first click the little gear shape in the upper right hand corner of the Bamboo Dock, (not one of the free apps) then the second item "My Tablet" and from there, "Pen Tablet Properties".Read more ›
