Graphics Tablet

  Jimmy14 12:58 06 May 2006

I am going to buy a Wacom graphics tablet today and would like to know if anyone has had one or came across one and what they think of it.

The specific one is the Volito 2

All suggestions will be greatly appreciated

I don't use that particular model but we have a number of Wacom tablets of varying sizes and they are all excellent - far better than any other brands we have been shown.

Go ahead, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

We have a couple of Wacom tablets in my office, and although I don't use them myself I'm told they are very good.

I am going to go and purchase one today.

Let us know what you think of it.

I will get back to you's tonight at some point with my thoughts of it.

Having once installed it, you will tend to use it at first more that the mouse.
Two things which might give a wobbly-

If in the heat of the moment you put the pen down on the tablet rather than the holder, don't be surprised if the cursor goes off on its own while trying to use the mouse!

If you use it a great deal, particularly when you would normally use the mouse, you might just wonder why your shoulder starts to ache and burn.
A sort of tablet induced R.S.I. the cure is obvious, rest your forearm on the table or do something entirely different for a while.

€dstowe, I went and purchased it today at my Local Comet Store but the usual, its out of stock and I have to get one ordered in so it won't be till Wed that it will be delivered to my local store and then I will have to go and pick it up.

I will keep you posted when it arrives
