Enhance Creativity with Multi-Touch Technology
With the Pen and Touch, Wacom has implemented a new technology called Multi-Touch. Typically, tablets require you to use the stylus for navigation, but Multi-Touch provides a comfortable hands-on alternative. It allows you to quickly navigate through your computer with a single finger. You can also scroll, zoom, and rotate your screen with simple hand gestures. It's intuitively-designed and easy to use -- even if you're new to the touch experience.
For precision work, you can use the included pen. When you use the pen, the screen will automatically recalibrate for more precise use. In your hands, the pen quickly becomes an all-purpose art tool. It features 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity, allowing you to perform tasks ranging from fine hand-writing to wide-brush painting. You can add hand-drawn embellishments to your favorite photos, add life to your digital sketches, or provide a personal touch to your scrapbooking pages.
First-Class Visual Editing Software The tablet also comes with a full suite of visual editing software, including Adobe Photoshop Elements 7.0 Win/6.0 Mac and Nik Color Efex Pro 3.0 WE3--valued separately at several hundred dollars.
Pen and Touch is compatible with Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP (Service Pack 2) and Mac OS X (10.4.8 or higher.) It requires a powered USB drive, a colored screen, and a CD/DVD drive.

For less than $100 you get an extremely capable pen tablet with a "rough around the edges" yet promising touch device. The shape and form factor is smallish yet works fine with my 20" widescreen monitor. The long USB cable should accommodate almost any workspace setup.
The pen works flawlessly. Using the pen has dramatically increased my productivity particularly in Adobe Illustrator, it's a breeze to use compared to a mouse for vector work. It's also very capable in Photoshop and even as a mouse replacement for general use. The shape of the pen could be more contoured however and it's not easy to move quickly from using the pen to typing due to its shape. Overall I am very pleased using the pen.
The multi-touch component of this device combined with the price is what sold me. I wanted a fluid experience much like other touch devices and this seemed, in combination with the pen, like the answer to a mouse-less desk. My initial impressions of the touch capabilities of the tablet were mixed, it was jittery, continually dragging items around my computer screen that I did not intend to move and frustrating. Now I have a touch pad on my laptop and am very comfortable using such a surface which made the experience even more confusing. A large portion of my problems were fixed by adjusting the preferences in the control panel as well as turning off the single finger "Drag" setting. Even after rectifying many of my issues I still feel like the touch experience could use some refinement, however I am sticking with it so far and have not returned to using a mouse.
The Bamboo Pen & Touch offers a great entry into the tablet world along with a promising touch functionality. I would definitely buy this again with the strong message of adjusting the preferences right out of the box since this solved most of my initial issues.
All I can say is WOW.
Where do I start?
Well, my first impression was that this product has the "Apple effect". The packaging is very nice, everything is easy to find. The installation and tutorial is also incredibly easy.
Then I put the pen to the pad. I was blown away. I had to check to see if I hadn't picked up a pencil instead; they're not kidding when they say it's a natural feel! The tablet feels amazingly natural; I was able to start creating art right away without a problem. The pen has a replaceable tip, a button that can be pressed two ways, and a thicker "eraser" tip. The buttons can be programmed for basic preset functions, or any keystrokes you want to program. The tip and eraser feel can actually be adjusted in System Preferences!
Using it to navigate is fairly straightforward, and the two programmable buttons (default Scroll and Right Click) make the experience fairly smooth. However, it's much easier to use a mouse/trackpad with a keyboard than the pen plus keyboard just because you don't have to put a pen down to type.
Since I rest my hand on the sensor area while I draw, I usually turn the touch off and I keep it off- If you have a Macbook, you will find that there is absolutely no reason for you to use the touch functionality. While the tactile feel of drawing is amazing, I and my friends much prefer the Macbook trackpad. Also, three and four finger gestures are not supported.
If you're buying this tablet to draw, I would suggest keying the pen and tablet buttons to photoshop-related functions.
I've only used Photoshop, and the integration is amazing! The pressure sensitivity makes random sketching come out with a much more natural feel. Also, you can flip the pen around and it will become an eraser! Very useful. The handwriting recognition is also fairly nice. It works with any program and it's fairly accurate. I still find that I type much faster, but for people who don't it's worth a try.
In conclusion, for the purpose I bought it, this tablet is a definite 5/5. An absolute blast to use with, undoubtedly, the quality of a professional's precision tool.
