Drawing tablet.

Unread post by Synnthetic » 17 Apr 2012, 01:47

So I just got this new Bamboo Pen drawing tablet. And it's a piece of shit. I like the software, but the drawing space is so small, it doesn't fit the screen properly, and if I get and inch away from it the tablet disconnects from the pen and when I'm already trying to draw again it's busy reconnecting. Sadface. Now now I have to go return it. Anyone know of a better drawing tablet? One that has longer pen connection range?

I use the Bamboo Fun tablet... It's small (8x10) but you really have to get used to the size. I like my bamboo ones, but I know that they change depending on the computer... some computers it works fine, others: it's crap.

I wouldn't know what else to suggest. I've only ever had this one and my friend has bamboo as well... :/

I use a Bamboo Pen Tablet, it's also small, but I like it. Though, Dess probably has the NEWW NEWWW models which look like shit. Mine was basically new, but it's not even on their site anymore.

ugh wow yeah... I just went on the site and the new ones look annoying...

This is the one I have: http://gadgetscrunch.com/wp-content/upl ... tablet.jpg

Maybe try to get a working used one? I don' think they sell them anymore, but you could look around.

I have this one:

It's just plain and simple. No buttons. And only two buttons on the wireless pen, which don't need batteries.

Mine looks similar to Kaitsu's, but... slightly different.

Again, my only real issue is the pen disconnects if you even think about moving it away from the tablet, and it doesn't really draw well either. I watched on the tablet, and I made a smooth curve, and when I looked on the screen it looked all sorts of fucked up... I'm guessing it's because mine is cheap? It was the cheapest one they had, at $80.

Mine costed 60-70 on the site.
I bought a refurbished one, so it was cheaper.

The newer ones just suck and cost more.

I love refurbished. I got two of my three computers refurbished and they lasted forever~ Good stuff right there.

Ah, well... If you guys see a new line of them come out that don't suck cock, please let me know. I'd like to get into this digital art shit. Paper and pencil has never been good to me, it smudges and agroes me.

Well, if anything though, the errors of your current model might be the driver. So try updating it or something, but I doubt it. D:
