This made me get into digital art/w great price!
Posted by: Luigi from: on
After countless attempts of trying to make good works of art with a mouse, I was just about to plain give up til I was stumbling abouts of " graphic tablets" on the Internet, and decided to give them a try. Spending hours in my local best buy comparing tablet after tablet , I stumbled into this and decided to purchase this. This tablet is amazing and good enough for my 24" monitor, my lines have been very accurate and the response time is perfect! If you wanted to start doing good digital art and on a budget, I would highly suggest this for a bang of your buck!

software subscriptions beware
Posted by: tb13 from: on
Tablet is fine, problem is with all the "free trial" software that comes with it and you have to make a decision before you know what is going on. Almost all of it comes as auto renewal so beware. We had issues keeping track of and unsubscribing from some of this software. Check your credit card bills closely. Sketchbook's telephone message said they would get back to me in 1 to 2 weeks, and then there was no space to leave a message. Here's the number, I'm not making this up 1-855-323-2170

Great graphics tablet for beginners
Posted by: Jdkris13 from: on
I'm only two years into graphic design so I wasn't looking to spend a lot to try out graphics tablets for my work. This product is reasonably priced and works great with my MacBook Pro.

I just started getting into illustrations but I realized that using a mouse alone in front of my desktop wasn't going to cut it. I knew the software and hardware I had were ready for a drawing tablet but I didn't quite feel ready to fork over more than $200 (budget kinda tight). So, I did some looking around a decided the Wacom Intuos was in my price range, question was to go medium or small? For budget reasons, I choose the smaller CTH480. I did notice a similar model to the CTH480 that was the same size and few bucks less but that cheaper one only worked with a stylus and not my fingers. Having the option to use either the pen or fingers is a good option and it's easy. I'm working on a 24 inch screen so I'd say the small model I'm using just about cuts it but if you have a screen over 20 inches and can spare the cash, go for the medium. For drawing short lines, the small works great but if you need to draw a long line, you might feel like your hand is going to fall off the tablet. I have to say I notice more when I'm holding the pen rather than just using my finger. It is plug-n-play and the usb cable is long enough that I don't need to go wireless (it's an option to add if I want to). What's more important is the pen does not require a battery to work and just like a pencil, I can use the other end of the pen as an eraser. The pen is comfy but doesn't quite have the same feel as a pencil in my hand, takes some getting used to. If you're an enthusiast or a student on a budget, it's a great starter drawing tablet.

Great to get started with digital drawing.
Posted by: IBQ1 from: on
I never used a digital canvas before, I had no idea what to expect. I thought it would be tricky to setup, this was quite simple. It is no more complicated to use than using a mouse. I plugged it in, installed the software, and I was able to move the cursor around Adobe Photoshop CS6 without any further setup. I was able to start drawing right away.

Wacom Intuos Art CreativeSmall Pen & touch tablet
Posted by: AngelSpirit from: Virginia Beach,VA on
My daughter is an AP 2d Art Studio Student & asked for a device to help her create her artwork for her high school class. My husband & I went to the store to see what they had. After talking with her about the various sizes & functions of the device we purchased it.
She has a better capacity with this tablet to create her digital artwork.
She is very pleased with the device to achieve the results so that her artwork pops.
Since this is a high school course as well as a potential college credit we wanted to ensure she would have exactly what she needed to create her art.
The price was reasonable and was not the lowest priced device as we chose a higher level device with more perks & was on sale for $20 less on the original price. We got a lot of bang for our money.
It works so much nicer than the bamboo and also had a return policy. If our daughter did not like the tablet, it could be returned for full refund as long as it was within the time limit.
Her art teacher is also pleased with the results compared to her last years AP Art Studio & sees the difference.

Forget an active pen!
Posted by: lonpmc from: on
With thus device you can draw, sketch, add to an existing document. I looked at several active pens and the "good" ones are expensive and not very responsive. I got this for 100 dollars and it is light years ahead of any active pen...... The only draw back is it is another book size device you have to carry if you need it in the field. In the office it is fantastic...... Plus if you are artistic the sketch feature us amazing

Great for beginners
Posted by: enigmawriter from: on
I really liked this small drawing tablet and really great for beginners. If you're a pro, though, go with the tablet that has more pressure points. This one is great to start off with and it has touch capabilities.

Useful but average in implementation
Posted by: jacobo from: AL, US. on
I wanted better than mouse performance for various photo processing tasks and art in general. A tablet is a must-have. I have not tried others but did some initial research. This was a good price.
- Hope it gets MUCH better Haven't tried pricier units.
- I'd not pay more unless the improvements were hugely significant
- Very useful; and very frustrating.
Best suggestion: Unplug your mouse for 3 days and go tablet alone
Fact: not going back to mouse and am still using the tablet for everything.
The tablet itself is small - too small for me. My hand falls off it at the edges of the screen - at the worst time and often with bad results and correction needed.
Extra surface surrounding the active plate would have been nice. Dragging past the edge with the hand suddenly in awkward position straddling pad and table surface and altering pen position can be disruptive when one is concentrating and involved.
The dialog boxes and panels for configuration are just plain clunky.
Did I say ugly?
The four corner buttons - 2 each at the top left and right are inexplicable.
Maybe we didn't know what to do and it sounded like a good idea at the time?
Now, reach across your pen hand to get to the button not on the free hand side.
Any aspect of UI design is very well hidden :-)
After initial try I watched many good artist and user videos and found out I wasn't doing anything wrong. Just a matter of getting used to.
The pen is not very bright. I suspect it's also a price point. No eraser.
I should read up and purchase a good one when I can.
1. It's a tablet, and works as such and sets the right context
2. Driver is not very smooth. Can be very jumpy and at times is lost. OS integration is not very good (I use Windows 10)
3. Driver config interface (configuration panel,etc.) is clunky
4. Settings should NOT reset after an upgrade - that's ELEMENTARY.
5. I wish there were a neutral place - something akin to an "ink well" I could stand the pen in when using the keyboard. The safest place, so far, is between my lips or teeth where It cannot affect the pointer.

Great entry level tool!
Posted by: Mysonshine from: on
Great price! No regrets! We purchased this as an additional drawing tool for a design line.... the return on investment is immeasurable!
