This is a pretty good pad, got to demo it, and it definitely feels good. It's ultra sensitive, with lots of cool options, and shortcut buttons where you can assign on certain positions on the pad itself. Those who want a pad but lack the monetary funds for one can consider this. Comes in 2 sizes!

definitely cheaper than the wacom graphite series...

not sure about the quality of this vs the new wacom graphite, its confirm not going to compete with the intuos series. i bought a genius one long b4 anybody even know tablets exist... :p... den it din last me over a year, might be due to the QC of taiwanese parts during that era... switched to wacom & never turned back.

agree it is a good buy and cheaper alternative to the wacom tablets.

i have one myself. however, once i felt the wacom pens and used them i really felt switching.. my advice is to save and pay a bit more for the wacom one if you can afford it.. though im not discrediting the genius one..

come to think about it, the grahphire ones are only 512level sensitivity, the intuos ones are 1024 levels. so this sub 100 and large tablets is really a 'good' buy... but the problem is, does it really have 1024 & is the person using able to 'gauge' the 1024. graphire is about 1.5 - 2 times the price of this, dun bother asking about the price difference of intuos. :p

actually i made some comments about it in an earlier post...

but here goes anyway, .. it is responsive, works in everyway it is supposed to. useful generally if u are looking for a tablet but dont have the cash to blow over the wacom ones. it is a good substitute at this price.

however, the wacom pens just have a better grip and feel. (my boyfriend has a graphire) it feels so comfortable as compared with the genius one. not saying that the genius one is uncomfortable to hold, but the wacom one just feels much better and is more ergonomic.

my opinion is that this is good for people who want to use a tablet. but maybe if you plan on using a tablet very frequently (or always), a wacom one might be more comfy.

right now i only plug the genius tablet in when i need it for photoshop..

hope the review helps!
