I bought one of these so that the little ones could draw directly onto the computer. When I got this home it worked straight away once plugged into the usb port. There was no need to install any additional drivers which was great.
Once this was working, I opened paint and it was instantly recognised. I was happy with how responsive it was and its accuracy. The box includes the actual tablet and a pen with stand. The most impressive part of this graphics tablet was the size. Most affordable tablets have the tiniest of screens which had put me off purchasing one in the past. This product was relatively cheap and had many advantages. There is a plastic sheet on top which you can use to trace pictures. The tablet is also built in a widescreen format which can come in handy for some.
Overall, this is one of the best tablets available, definitely purchase if this is what you are looking for.
I had a Wacom Bamboo tablet for a while until I broke it. So I needed to buy a cheap tablet to use until I could get the money for a new Wacom tablet. This tablet was £48.99 from Amazon.co.uk. I received it quicker than I expected - about 2 or 3 days after I ordered it.
I didn't expect too much of it as it wasn't one that I'd been longing for for ages, it was just one to use until I could get a new Wacom tablet. It came with an easy-to-read English manual. In the box was: the tablet, the pen, a pen battery, 2 spare nibs for the pen and a pen holder.
Installing the tablet was very easy and I was surprised to see that it came with an art program called Artweaver. The program was quite a bit complicated as I'd never used it before, but that didn't matter as I use GIMP anyway.
Sometimes when I start up the computer and open GIMP there is no pressure mode, which REALLY annoys me because then I have to restart my computer, and my computer usually takes forever to start up. So that's the only thing I don't like about the tablet.
The actual tablet is quite big compared to most other tablets - it was bigger than my Wacom tablet, which pleased me a lot. The pen isn't too big or too small and very easy to draw with.
I loved this tablet so much that I decided not to buy a new Wacom Bamboo tablet - I'm going to use this until it expires which will be in a good 2 years or so. And the money that I've been saving for that tablet can keep building up and I'll be able to buy an amazing tablet when this one expires!
This is an amazing tablet overall and was definitely worth the money - in fact, it was a huge bargain! This was recommended to me by a friend and I would definitely pass on the message!
I had a huge Wacom tablet until it expired last year. Feeling doomed to poor quality, low price tablets....I was amazed at the precision and detail achievable with the Trust widescreen tablet. 27 'hotkeys' provide easy to install/manage shortcuts to your most frequent actions whilst two scrollers alow you to navigate up or down. The tablet has become such a precise intuative method of using the computer, I now use it online instead of the mouse. The tablet comes with a pen two replaceable nibs, a pen holder, basic Corel softwear and full instructions. The 250 by 150 mm screen is ideal for use in Photoshop or Corell painter. The tablet is connectable through USB, the coard is of adequate length to not be too short for some computer desks/workstations. The pen sensitivity is amazing considering the price and I'd genuineley consider another Trust tablet in the future. The tablet also comes with easy to understand 'plain english' installation software.
