You're a CAD designer and use a MOUSE!? No wonder you have RSI...

A very good price but I think that a different model and does not have the same features as the new one WACOM CTH-460-EN /CTL460EN but I could be wrong

Wacom are the makers of graphics tablets. The bamboo tablet recommended by knocka further up is cheaper and one model up. so better in terms of price and quality ( http://www.wacom.com/bamboo/bamboo_touch.php) .and its from Amazon

I think you've got your facts wrong about the cheaper one, it's a model down from the OP's not up.
The range goes Bamboo Touch, Bamboo Pen, Bamboo Pen and Touch. The Pen and Touch model has 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity, the other two have 512.

This is a great price however you look at it though!
#11
Don't know if I need the 'touch' or not as you're meant to use it instead of the mouse. Also the surface of the pad isn't that great for moving your finger on according to Engadget

http://www.engadget.com/2009/12/10/wacom-bamboo-pen-and-touch-review/

Probably best getting the one down from it that just uses a pen

Got this, 70 quid at Apple. Really good piece of kit.

I do Game Design at Uni, use it a fair bit. Other members of the course say it's on par with their £350+ Intuos tablets, in terms of pressure sensitivity, only difference is lack of size and other buttons.

Recommended. Plus you don't feel bad if you don't use it too much considering the price compared to other Wacom tablets...

Pen and touch version has 1024, same as the ridiculously expensive models, the Pen version has 512. As Scrooge mentioned. So why get the Pen version, unless it's to give to your kids...

Price looks good. We were discussing this particular tablet in the office last week.
Although I'm a graphic designer i've never tried using one and would like to see what affect it has on my style of work.
#14
I'm a graphic designer and video editor and had a Wacom tablet for years and years, it's so old it's connected by a Serial lead. If you're a freehand artist and the like, you'll love it. But it's not likely to be a replacement for your mouse for general use, some do use it exclusively but not many. I hardly use mine but then I'm not an illustrator or modeller.
#15
It makes no odds if it has 512 or 1024 points of pressure for your average user. I use an Intuos 3 (higher end tablet) and the only difference between this and the pen and touch is the surface texture. This is a bargain for what it is but the none touch one is better value for money.
#16
Not a bargain is it? Cheaper at Amazon and PCWorld

I brought this only the other week from Amazon for £67.40 and I highly recommend it!! Makes using my computer alot easier but only after you get use to it.

The Touch side of things is good for browsing the web but not found it easy for much else just yet.... some of the gestures are not easy to pull off!!

But for this price its a great bargain!!! :)
#19
Get an Intuos if you are using professional software. I have found the Bamboos to play up a lot at work.

Most CAD I have used (mainly Catia and IDEAS) need mouse button combinations, which is not possible with a pen & tablet. Unless you also have a SpaceBall or similar.
#21
@WasBeen my index finger canes from using a mouse too. One thing to try is getting a mouse with a thumb button and assigning that button as left click. Or if it's the scroll wheel causing the problem, you could try a mouse with a thumb wheel.
#22
Fair warning - these eat nibs as does the more expensive intuos4. D.nt believe me - google it!
#23
This is not wireless - looking for a cheap wireless one - any suggestions?
#24
I got a Volito for same reasons as others...painful mouse clicks... but i was disappointed in that even on highest sensitivty the pen needs a fair amount of pressure. I had another make as my prior two tablets and their pen was super sensitive.

Hey

I'm trying to chose between this one and the Genius G-pen M712X which both have decent reviews but it's difficult to work out which would best suit my girlfriend who is a graphic designer.

I know that the Wacom Intuo 4 is the industry standard, but, according to trusted reviews and the specifications at least, the M712X sounds great and I don't feel the need to spend an extra £200-300 for the ultra professional model.

any one have any thoughts on these two lower priced options - it seems to me that the large dimensions of the Genius one would be more of an advantage over the touch functionality of the Wacom pen and touch?

Genius is £89 on amazon.
Thanks in advance...

I thought the pen looked pretty horrible like a Trust one and this review says it's quite big, a bit cheap and doesn't have an eraser on the end http://besttabletreview.com/review-and-unboxing-of-the-genius-g-pen-m712x-graphics-tablet/

Just managed to get hold of one... Thanks..
