    Anyone try this before? What are your experiences with the included software and the drawing pad?

    I was wondering the same thing. I have have not bought a drawing tablet for several years. I am thinking of buying my wife one and was looking at the options. It seems like the sensitivity rating of the bamboo might be difficult for "fine art" as compared to the higher Wacom products.

    Alex Lindsay was a guest on DL.tv and did a nice review on the Bamboo.. see here (its toward the end of the show). He still lists it in his "whats in my bag" on the TWIP website.

    It's a good product imo, just don't expect too much from such a small tablet and you will enjoy it.

    I use the bamboo on my laptop as opposed to my intuos 3 on my desktop.

    It's ok, but not great. Pen feels cheap. The nib is horrid, but thankfully I changed it to one of the ones for my intuos.

    Buttons are not great and the dialer is next to useless.

    Its also not as anywhere near as sensitive as the intuos.

    But for less than 1/3 the price it's serves a purpose.
