i) I use this tablet to primarily as a note taking device on a dual monitor PC. So, I fixed the issue of writing on ONLY one of the monitor from here: http://superuser.com/questions/158891/how-to-set-my-bamboo-fun-to-work-only-on-one-of-my-dual-screens.
ii) Also, fix the right click issue from here: http://forums.artrage.com/showthread.php?46155-Trouble-with-quot-long-press-quot-right-click-with-Wacom-Tablet-pen.
iii) Finally, map the pen to the area you use for writing to get a better resolution out of the device.
I have attached a picture of what my hand-writing looks like now. It used to be really bad with this device until yesterday, but as you can tell it's a lot better now...
If I hadn't been stupid with handling it, it would have lasted much longer. I will indeed order this again once my tablet goes kaput completely. :)
The feeling of the pen on the surface is wonderful--much more intuitive than the slippery surface of the graphire. However, I posted this review to say that THIS DOES NOT HAVE A FUNCTIONING ERASER. I saw conflicting remarks about this, but having ordered this tablet from this very page, I can say at least that the unit I sent did not come with an eraser at the end of the pen. Hence 4 stars instead of 5.
That said, it feels remarkably small and sleek despite having a pretty impressive active surface area, and the nib sensitivity settings feel just right. The buttons are thoughtful and their defaults are assigned well, and the installation is extremely easy. It's a great tablet at a great price.
EDIT: Now that I've owned this a few months, I'm less than impressed. Everything was super smooth at first, but then the drivers seemed to constantly go wrong. I have to keep reinstalling the drivers if I want my computer to detect the pen sensitivity. And once there was a period where it seemed extremely laggy for no good reason until I restarted my computer. (Google bamboo extremely laggy! Apparently this is a common problem.) Occasionally I had to restart my computer and whatnot for my Graphire, but it wasn't *this* bad.
The low ratings made me somewhat hesitant to order the product, but after wearing down one pen "nib" after a few hours of use I realized I had to bite the bullet. Luckily, the product turned out OK.
It's true the adhesive only is around the edges. I didn't have a problem with this, but I can see how others might find it annoying. The cover I received covered only the active area on my tablet, and not the whole thing. I also did not receive button covers, but I don't see the point of those anyway. I think the problems others have mentioned might actually be due to receiving the wrong size cover, since mine looks different from the pictures uploaded by other users.
The only area of concern is that applying the cover must be done carefully, as repositioning again and again will dull the adhesive and make it slide around. I suggest the use of a ruler to make sure you apply the cover correctly.
After the cover was on, using my Bamboo became so much more enjoyable - I was no longer scratching the surface or wearing down nibs. The process of applying the cover might have been a little nuisance,but a cover really is necessary to deal with the nib-eating Bamboo surface unless you like constantly buying new nibs.
