Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: VT 12-Inch Touch Screen Graphic Pen Tablet (White) (Personal Computers)
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.

This is a fantastic art tool. It produces wonderful results from simple MS Paint to my usage of GIMP and Inkscape. It is also fantastic for Deviant Art's Muro Paint. The hotkeys that can be programmed easily via the hotkeys instructional is fascinating! Each Macro Key brings even more hotkeys-and each one for different interfaces and programs! I like the default pin nib (it comes with one inserted in the pin, and two in a small package- make sure you place these tiny but necessary nibs in a place where they will not be lost nor forgotten). I like the fact that you can just start right away by downloading driver from ther Vistablet website and that it works by default with many popular programs. To get more out of it, I downloaded the MacroKey Manager, Free NOtes, Office Ink, and the unique Power Presenter RE II! The cherry on top is the Ulead PhotoImpact 12 SE disk, very useful for any layman or professional photographer. For Mac Users, it comes with a Mac Tablet Driver to assure you are not missed. How many companies do that? VisTablet may not be as fancy as some I have seen, but the sleek, near weightless, ease of use, and fabulous price makes it MY PICK of the MONTH!
Oh, did I mention the flippable transparent sheet that allows you to place photos or art and trace some sweet renditions? This is just too good. I love this Graphic Tablet!
