Amazing value for money,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Monoprice 10 x 6.25-Inch Graphic Drawing Tablet with 8 Hot Key (Personal Computers)
This tablet is large enough for comfortable drawing, and is mac compatible. (I had to buy an external CD drive for my macbook air, but the installation was simple and I don't need to have the disc constantly connected as I'd feared). The surface does show scratch marks after only a few uses, but these don't seem to affect the tablet at all, other than looking a bit less pristine. I haven't had any problems with my pen battery, like some other reviewers. It's been a few weeks and I haven't had to replace it yet.
I don't have a lot of use for the buttons, but they seem to work well enough. The button on the pen is equivalent to a left mouse click, but tapping gently produces the same result. The surface is mapped to your screen, so hand-eye co-ordination is easier.
Pressure sensitivity is excellent, so make sure you use a program which takes advantage of this. I recommend MangaStudio 5 (basically a better value, easier to use version of Photoshop).
I got a small wacom bamboo fun tablet on sale last year, but this is a much better purchase by far.
