Trust Slimline Widescreen Tablet,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trust Widescreen Graphics Tablet for PC, Laptop - Grey (Accessory)
After watching a video on YouTube basically panning this tablet, and reading a few reviews on other sites that were not very favourable, I decided to take a punt on it based on the price alone. It arrived yesterday and I eagerly cracked open the box not really sure what to expect. I've gotta be honest I was impressed with the packaging so I was off to a good start, and after 10 minutes installing the software and drivers and setting up the pen (it takes a AAA battery) I was ready to rock and roll. I have now been using this for slightly over 24 hours (Deduct 8 hours for sleep if you want to be pedantic) in both Photoshop CS3 and Art Rage and I am amazed that this tablet only cost me £40. To completely contradict the YouTube video I watched there is absolutely no lag in either Photoshop or art rage, or indeed even when using it to navigate windows 7 instead of my mouse. The weight of the battery in the pen actually makes the pen feel sturdy and more comfortable in my hand, and the size of the tablet is unbelievable in this price bracket. The actual size of the tablet is approx 32cm wide by 30cm tall, the drawing area is approx 29cm wide by 19cm tall and all of the short cuts that are pre programmed work right out of the box in windows, Photoshop, and art rage. Seriously Folks if you are into photo editing or drawing on your PC and on a budget like I am this is a heavy duty piece of kit for very lightweight money and I have zero problems recommending it to anyone.
In Summary i will say ignore haters who have compared this to Wacom's tablets as if you can afford Wacom tablets you wont be looking at alternatives. Lets face it Jeremy Clarkson would pan the Vauxhall Astra as he gets to drive Ferrari's yet a vauxhall astra will still get you to work on time and let you play your cd's while keeping dry in the rain. In other words it might not be a lottery winners choice but it does the job it was meant to do with no problems whatsoever, and as stated before if you were a lottery winner would you really be looking for cheaper alternatives.
Many Thanks for a superb product Amazon.
