Very nice add-on for Wacom tablets,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wacom Wireless Accessory Kit for Bamboo and Intuos Tablets (ACK40401) (Personal Computers)
I use a Wacom Bamboo Capture and felt the included cord was a bit too "limited" (it's about 3 feet in length) - my options were to either buy a longer cord or this Wireless Accessory Kit.
The kit includes 3 pieces:
* Wireless transmitter
* Wireless receiver
The battery and wireless transmitter plug right into the Bamboo Capture (or other supported tablet) -- the bottom has a compartment that opens and the pieces all slide in to place (meaning no transmitter sticking out the side.. everything is self-contained within the tablet).
The Transmitter piece adds a POWER button to the side to turn it on/off. The battery charges via the same USB cable that came with the tablet (just plug it in as you normally would (when using it wired) and it will charge).
The receiver is a very small wireless (Bluetooth?) dongle which fits into a USB port and is very thin in profile (one problem with these are that some are much larger and can be a problem when connected to a laptop).
When everything is plugged in and charged, hit the POWER button on the side of the tablet, the light on the tablet will flash white for a few seconds ("connecting") and then blue ("Connected"), indicating the status.
I found the connection time was often very quick (2-3 seconds from pressing Power) but some applications (such as photoshop) took up to 10 seconds to recognize the tablet. Other applications would recognize it much sooner.
I did have the transmitter not be able to connect a few times (white light comes on for a few seconds and then turns off) - this was fixed by unplugging and re-plugging in the USB receiver to the PC. I'm hoping this isn't going to be a problem in the long-run.
Response times and sensitivity were perfect -- same as if it were wired -- this was one of my concerns as if it couldn't keep up, it wouldn't be usable for most instances.
Price was reasonable, it works great and makes using the tablet much more enjoyable. Recommended.
