Notice that I downloaded the latest drivers from Wacom rather than installing from the supplied CD. I did this after reading advice on the web and it has been problem free for me.
The installation is quick and requires a reboot when finished, and I found (On two machines) that the first time I rebooted after driver installation it takes a little while for the tablet driver to load and be ready for the tablet. However, on subsequent reboots this does not seem to be the case and the driver is ready and waiting as soon as Windows has started.
The size of the tablet means that using the pen in place of a mouse is much easier to get used to (This wasn't the case on a tablet half the size). The included mouse worked first time and is just as good as my desktop mouse, although I find it counter-productive to pick it up and place it on the tablet when I want to use it.
I use the tablet only for artwork, so I am not replacing my mouse with it, although I can see no reason why you couldn't just use the table, it would certainly be easy enough to get used to.
The tablet itself is well made and sits very firmly where its placed, with no slipping and sliding, and the configurable buttons (Which can be set to accept any keystroke combination) make using it within applications a pleasure. The scroll/zoom sliders are easy to use and work very well, and can be set up so you can use the pen as well as a finger to activate them.
All in all this tablet is well worth the money.
I am back here to say that I've just been accepted in a Graphic Design/Arts course, and most of my success comes from the fact that I used this tablet to do my work.
Was it not for the tablet, I wouldn't have had the time to do some work to build up a portfolio.
This tablet helped me doing things faster, so I could do more in less time. The tutor that interviewed me yesterday was impressed because I didn't have much experience in some areas and she found my work to be quite good.
Using only a mouse would have been hard for me, as I tend to shake my hands a bit when they're flat and have to correct the work a few times. Using the tablet with the pen was, on the other hand, pretty accurate.
So yeah, I'm happy to have passed and got into a course, and would recommend this tablet even for those who don't have any experience with tablets but want to train and develop their skills.
I have this tablet for about a month now. I don't work in the design/arts field. I do photo manipulation and paintings, but I do it for me and my friends, and I would say it's a hobby.
I have been using this product everyday and I am impressed with it. I always wanted a tablet and I always wanted a Wacom one.
I don't regret buying this, as it is so much better to paint using this than a mouse. I don't have time or space to buy canvas, paints and brushes, so digital is the way to go. If you are a digital artist, than you can invest on this. I believe that it makes life so much easier when you are trying to vary the thickness of the brush, the angle... The precision of this is just awesome. I don't know how to explain, the thing just worked on my Mac straight out of the box. I plugged it in, went to the Wacom website, downloaded the newest driver and was painting in a matter of minutes.
You take some time to get used to the pen, and how you should hold it, but after you do - that should not take long anyway, you won't go back to a mouse when you are painting/retouching/designing.
The included mouse is wireless, does not need batteries, and has five buttons (the middle is the scroll wheel of course), and it works great. It's good to know that there are reliable products such as this one on the market today, because usually they don't work as they should, but this one surely does.
If you are still in doubt about it, I recommend that you go to the Apple store and try it for yourself. They usually have one hooked up to a Mac so you can try it and see how it feels. I am sure that you will be impressed just as I am.
I have both this one and the A4 Wide. I use the A4 wide at home and the A4 for traveling. Could not do without it.
You can use it in mouse or pen mode. Once you get used to using a pen(which does not take long) you will never want to use a again. It also eases the problem of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. My hand is much better since using the pen. In fact it is now fine. I had been starting to have a lot of problems from using a mouse.
Both the pen and Tablet are programmable.
The pen has 3 programable buttons. One on the back which can be used as an erasor but you can use any button for that. Some programs need you to select delete as the code instead of erase depending what you use it for. You can also set any button to erase and have the same programable options as the tablet.
The tablet has 8 programable buttons which can be tailored to suit your needs and not just for one program and 2 programable scroll buttons which can either be used for scrolling or programmed with 2 shortcuts each.
You can create settings for each individual software program that you are using and they are saved. No need to re enter your settings when changing to another program.
All of the butons are programable to anything you choose.
You can also program various buttons with a pop up menu.
No installation problems but dont forget to update the drivers.
