    5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously good quality product 8 Feb 2009
    People say that Wacom tablets are way above the competition, but I thought it was just hype until I got this one. I used to have a Trust tablet that cost half the price, and though I liked it, after a while little flaws made me drift back to the mouse. I liked using a pen, but it slipped, double-clicking was almost impossible, the buttons and grip weren't quite right, it felt clumsy, and it didn't totally gel with the software I used.

    This one, however, is seriously, seriously good. It feels solid. The grip is perfect - there's loads of ways to hold the pen where the buttons are in just the right place. The tablet feels surprisingly like real paper to draw on, and doesn't slip. It just works with most programs. It's even quite easy to double-click. Oh, and no batteries in the pen is a handy little bonus.

    Best of all, there's loads of options for what to do with the buttons. How I've got mine set up, to give you an idea, is on my laptop which I mostly use for internet the arrow keys on the tablet are 'back' and 'forward', and holding down the spare button on the pen turns the pen into a handy grab-and-scroll thing like the 'hand' with .pdf files. On my main computer which I use mostly for design on Photoshop, I've got the arrow keys set for the keyboard shortcuts for 'step forward' and 'step backward' (undo/redo), and the spare button brings up a customised menu that triggers the keyboard shortcuts for all my most-often used commands, like new layer, fill, colour balance, etc etc. It's massively increased how natural and pleasurable design work feels, and I think the quality of what I do has increased noticabley as well.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Bamboo Fun - Linux User 26 Oct 2008
    By Martin
    I am a long time computer user in need of a solution for the gradual onset of RSI as well as improving photography manipulation via the Gimp. My current set up is Linux Ubuntu, Hardy Heron.
    I had a few concerns regarding about setting up the tablet on Linux, having read many threads on the process required, but decided to take the plunge.
    Setting up the tablet on Linux was not simple, but with so many useful pages to visit I eventually managed to get up and running.
    Wow. Why didn't I do this years ago. I haven't touched the mouse for three days and what a difference. The pain in my forearm is now a distant memory, even after such a sort space of time.
    Photo manipulation is awesome. As mentioned above, I use the Gimp, and it works like a dream. Have been busy doing some post processing, and it is so much easier. It has always been a struggle to select areas of photographs with the mouse. With the tablet it is a breeze.
    I would recommend this tablet to anyone with the same problems I had.

    5.0 out of 5 stars First Tablet and Impressed :) 2 Mar 2008
    Bought this as i started doing a bit more work with adobe illustrator and flash, and was finding drawing with the mouse really annoying and tedious. I got it today, and i havnt even used the mouse since! takes a little while to get used to, but i find i can do tasks so much faster :) Navigating round the desktop is so fast and i have done more animation today since i got it than in 2 weeks :) Works out of the box, but installed the driver anyway. The zoom pad at the top of the tablet is an excellent feature and the other keys are very useful. Works excellently with all applications ive tried, inc. flash CS3 and Illustrator cs3. The A5 screen is more than big enough and the stylus feels good (a good size and weight). I have only had it for a day so far, and this is my first tablet, so things might change but i would definately recommend so far.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Take the tablet and feel better 19 April 2008
    Verified Purchase
    This is the first tablet I have used and it is making life a lot easier, as I have problems with my muscles and using my hands so the mouse is now almost redundant. The "artrage" software is a lot of fun and easy to use, so all in all it has been an excellent buy.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great first tablet 23 Jun 2009
    I've started to do a lot of photo retouching with a lot of cutting and pasting specific areas of photos to layers and all that and the mouse was proving just a bit cumbersome so I started looking at tablets.

    After many hours of researching, deliberating and changing my mind I finally plumped for the Bamboo Fun Small. A couple of things concerned me about this decision. Firstly would an A6 sized work area be big enough or should I go for something like the Trust TB-7300 at A4 size and secondly, did I need to spend the extra money over the plain Bamboo or even the Bamboo One just for the extra software that I thought I wouldn't use and, more importantly, the pressure sensitive eraser. Note the Bamboo One doesn't have an eraser on the back of it and the Bamboo has one but its not got 512 steps of pressure sensitivity.

    Now, having used the Bamboo Fun I can honestly say it has exceeded my expectations. The work area feels far larger than it looks when actually using it, if you're considering anything larger than the medium do try it out first as you could end up with tired arms and a product that you're disappointed with. I find the Small perfect when do photo work and some sketching. Note I have a 19" monitor running Vista.

    The tablet is very responsive and the pressure sensitivity is excellent. The small size makes it easy to accommodate on any desk. The tablet tracks movement very accurately and its easy to get the line shape you want or to pick out the areas of a photo of interest. The product is extremely well built and installation is easy. I'm very impressed with the overall package. For delicate photo work the eraser is very useful.

    Fun item but not really worth the money, it's not very accurate and the way you have to place your hand feels weird. Save your money and buy something better!

    This piece of kit is excellent. Although not as large or as sensitive as an Intuos it truly is worthy of being branded Wacom. Read more

    Perfect size and simple operation. The 6" x 4" pad is just the right size. You don't need to move your hand to far and after a few hours of use you'd be glad of that. Read more
