Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wacom Wireless Accessory Kit for Bamboo and Intuos Tablets (ACK40401) (Personal Computers)
I have been waiting for Amazon to carry this product for a couple months now, and was so excited to see it on here recently. I use a Wacom Bamboo, and work in a very limited space. Cords lying around all over my desk disrupt my workflow like no other, so this is a lifesaver for me.
Let me just say that setting this up was a breeze. Once you snap everything into your tablet and get it charged, literally all you have to do is plug in the wireless adapter into your computer and you're ready to go. No extra software or steps to go through to get this to work. Considering the fact that this is wireless, I thought that I would be able to notice somewhat of a lag without the tablet being directly plugged in, but there is no lag whatsoever.
The battery life is also stellar. Wacom says that this will last anywhere between 10-15 hours depending on the tablet you are using, and I definitely believe it. There is also a great little battery monitor that pops up in your taskbar, so you will never have this thing die on you with no warning.
The price on here is a couple dollars more than on Wacom's website, but with free shipping from Amazon, I actually came out ahead.
All in all, I am very pleased!

Thanks for the review, I too was waiting for Amazon to carry this product for some time now and I just ordered one a few minutes ago, I was just wandering if the battery is an original piece, I noticed the Wacom branding on the transmitter and receiver but the picture of the battery has no info on it like what you will see on Wacoms' website. Is there any writing ot the battery at all, any info will help. Thanks a lot, Sean.

Yes, you're right you can't really see in the picture, but the battery is Wacom branded. The entire accessory kit is genuine and the same thing you would get from Wacom's website.
Hope that helps :)

Wow, thanks so much for such the quick reply. I am a lot happier now knowing that it is an original kit that I just purchased. The seller should go to Wacoms' website and take a snapshot of the picture of the wireless kit there to post on Amazon so everyone would know for sure that they are purchasing an original kit. Thanks again for taking the time to reply.
