I just got my CTE450K today. It's sold as refurbished but appeared to be brand new to me. It works great! I recently got the latest Bamboo pen tablet and decided to get this one, too, to compare the features and performance (we have more than one computer).

Features this has that the latest Bamboo pen doesn't:

- The mouse. I've read negative comments about the mouse before. I don't know what they mean. I like the mouse a lot. It's comfortable, precise, and it lets me share the same space for the tablet and mouse (more convenient than using a separate conventional mouse).

- The eraser end of the pen. This lets you flip the pen over to erase instead of having to choose the eraser tool in your program and then choose your drawing tool again. Nice to have!

- The touch ring: this lets you scroll and zoom with your finger. It works well, but it's not a huge deal to me.

- The programmable buttons: I really like having buttons to program keystrokes and functions for quick access.

- The included software: this Bamboo Fun includes Photoshop Elements and Painter Essentials (and more). With the latest Bamboo, you get one or the other, depending which model you order.

The tablet works very well, just like the latest Bamboo. The latest Bamboo has a few less features to lower the price (I assume). This previous version has all the features and originally sold at a higher price. But with these refurbished ones, you get the extra features and actually pay less than for the latest Bamboo! I highly recommend these as the way to go compared to the latest Bamboo pen.

(Note: the latest Bamboo comes in versions that support finger touch in addition to the pen functionality.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I intended to write a serious review explaining the many useful features but that doesn't actually capture the fact that this thing is also fun, Fun, FUN!

*Deep breath*. Ok, back to serious mode. I've owned several pen shaped mouses (mice?) over the course of the last few decades and two graphics tablets. Prior to USB the tablets required some serious thought about how I was going to connect the tablet, a mouse and a keyboard. This one though just plugs in to a USB port, no need for any other power source -- and there is a ring in the top that lights up to let you know it is ready to go.

The graphics pen feels good and there are lots of choices when it comes to the function to assign to the two buttons. I like right click for the top one, scroll for the bottom and click for the tip. If you don't want to actually touch the pen to the tablet then you can set it to hover and make the lower button perform the click function. There is also a box you can check to get a click sound. The pen takes a little getting use to but I caught on fast and there is even a stand to keep it in although I keep knocking it over-- I assume it isn't weighted to keep the total postage weight down.

In addition to the pen is an elegant black and grey mouse that works like any other wireless mouse except it has to be used in proximity to the tablet.

The lit up ring on the tablet can also be used to manipulate documents, web pages, etc. Run your finger inside it clockwise and a web page increases in size, counter clockwise make it decrease in size. There are also two bottoms to each side which can be assigned functions.

There's some nice software on the disc that comes bundled with this set-- Adobe Photoshop Elements, Corel Painter Essentials 3.

Wacom has brought this technology a long way. Many shopping for Wacom tablets probably have owned similar products in the past. This product is more affordable than the higher end Intuos3 models, yet powerful enough for many pros.

For me, the small size is perfect. The "medium" sized tablet is suited for hard core graphics people who need to work at the pixel level for large images. Those using this for the mouse also may prefer the medium size. However, most users will find the small size probably fits their needs. Either way, the tablet maps to your screen size for any of these models.

This unit comes in a variety of colors and configurations. I prefer the look of the black tablet, but there are silver, white and blue ones also.

Bamboo Fun (Medium) Black Tablet with Pen, Mouse & Graphics Software
Bamboo Fun (Medium) Blue Tablet with Pen, Mouse & Graphics Software

Upon plugging in the device, the mouse worked immediately! The pen also works as a mouse or as a pen/brush for drawing applications.

The mouse is nice because it allows you to free up a USB port if you're using a USB mouse. Power users will need more from a mouse though. If you're anything like me, you prefer a mouse with many more options than this one provides.
