    Fantastic product does what it is supposed to. The touch isn't the best however the pen works well.

    the Mapping takes a little time to get used to but once your used to the interface its a breeze.

    Pros: Cost effective beginner pen tablet for minor work/photo editing.

    Cons: Where do I start?

    Cons: Where do I start?

    1)Difficult to install: I had an older Wacom Pro connected to my Macbook pro prior to this. I installed the latest drivers for this, but until I wiped out the old software, only either the pen or the touch would work (whichever I touched first after bootup), but never both. After 30 mins of messing with drivers this seems to be resolved.

    2)Ergonomics: The plastic requires a firm touch and has a high coefficient of friction compared the glass trackpad. Despite my high hopes, the MagicPad Wins there. I do like the blue, black, silver sharp color combo, but the feel is awful.

    3)Gestures: I bought this so I would have a device that combined the pen and MagicPad Performance. The gesture recognition on this is sloppy at best. Gestures to reveal the desktop or launchpad (thumb and three fingers) are imprecise and poorly detected. I never appreciated how amazingly natural the MagicPad gestures are until I tried this. They are also NOT programmable- so even if I wanted to change them to be more friendly, I can't. Dragging a window is plop three fingers and swipe left or right- that's all you get. Wacom's idea of "Customization" is checking a box to enable or disable gestures. Its amazing how much worse a 4 finger swipe to change spaces is compared to Apple's 3 fingered swipe. Selecting a block of text in a text editor such as Sublime Text is the hardest thing to do. You end up selecting it, but also moving it at the same time. I had to practice this for 10 minutes and its still not reliable.

    4)Details: when you scroll a web page with the MagicPad, you get that little bounce when you hit the top or bottom. You don't get that with this thing. When you swipe to change spaces its also an "all or nothing" thing where as with the magicpad you can pause half way between a swipe- you have control and fluidity. The whole operating system UI just works better with MagicPad. This made me VERY VERY sad. The lack of animation feels like 1995 all over again- as if Clippy the MS Office assistant is going to pop up any second, but even he was more animated than the UI when using the Wacom Pen and Touch.


    Bottom line: I'd pass on this. The MagicPad dies every 3 months when the physical clicker mechanism wears out, but I'd rather buy 4 of those per year at $70 than one of these ever. Wacom- PLEASE improve your stuff- cause I want to buy it- I really do!

  • Great piece of kit!

    I had seen many online videos such as Kelby and Phlearn where they use Wacom tablets. I bought this one as it seemed a good intro I had seen many online videos such as Kelby and Phlearn where they use Wacom tablets. I bought this one as it seemed a good introductory model at a reasonable price. I had never used one before. It is a fantastic piece of kit if you do anything like photo editing. I use both Lightroom and Photoshop and using this tablet has transformed the way I edit photos - everything is just 'easier'. Very easy to install and was up and running in minutes.
    Great!
