Wacom Bamboo Pen Graphics Tablet
Advantages: The pen needs no battery, pen fits nicely in my hand, many more advantages..
So I've been relying on my Trust Slimline Widescreen tablet for a while, but sooner or later it had to start to die of old age. But it didn't. Instead, I sat on the pen and snapped it, and two days later, when I was considering ordering a new pen, I spilt tea all over the tablet, and it was completely broken. It was useless. I couldn't bear using my mouse to do art, so I ordered a new tablet. The Wacom Bamboo Pen tablet. It came in a really nice lime green box, and everything inside was nicely packed and protected. So that ticks 'Good Packaging' off my list.
But of course, it's not all about what's on the outside. The tablet itself is nice and sleek and very lightweight, in comparison to my old tablet which was pretty thick and heavy. The pen is just the right size for my small hands and again, very sleek. The amazing thing about it is that is doesn't require a battery. Honestly, I was actually shocked about that. It may not seem like a big thing, but to me it was! I was actually so happy that it didn't need a battery, because I absolutely hate when I have to change the battery in my pen all the time. So I just needed to change the tip.
I installed the tablet onto my Macbook and the process was smooth and easy. I was delighted to see that with it came ArtRage 2 - free! I just checked on the ArtRage website and it is usually $20, so I was quite happy to get the program (even though I had never heard of it before, but at that moment I did desperately need an art program because GIMP wouldn't work on my Macbook and my Photoshop trial had expired).
Using the tablet is amazing. The experience was far better than my other tablet, by far. I couldn't get the pressure sensitivity to work with my other tablet but I finally got it to work, but when I used my new tablet with my PC laptop which has GIMP on it, the pressure sensitivity was there and it was all working fine. The tip of the pen with this tablet glides smoothly along the surface of the tablet, which contrasts greatly with my old tablet, whose pen scratches the surface and made me shiver.
All in all, this tablet is amazing and if you're looking for something cheap but amazing, then this is definitely what you need to buy.
