Wacom Volito... User experiences??

  Simsy 08:41 24 Nov 2004

Hi folks,

I've been asked by wife/parents what I'd like for my imminent birthday/Christmas...

I'm in the fortunate position of not really wanting for much, so I've thought about it and come to the conclusion that a graphics tablet would probably fit the bill, as I do mess about with photos a lot...

Anyway, I've done a bit of research, (including searching this site), and given that the budget is "possibly up to about £50", I think the Wacom Volito is probably suitable, as it can be got for about £40.

Given that I am perfectly happy using a mouse, and that I only envisage using this for graphics/photo work, I'm looking for feedback from anyone who actually uses one of these.

Any quirks I should be aware of that might make it not suitable for what I want it for?

Thanks in anticipation,

I'd gathered from research that wacom is the make to go for...

I'm really interested to hear experiences of those that have used this model.

I note from my research that you have recommended this make before.

The thing is that there is such a difference in price between this one, (circa £40), and the next on up, (circa £90), that I'd really like o get some feedback on this specific model.

(Not that your comments are welcome.. please don't think I'm disregarding the points that you've both made!!)

Anymore anyone?

That sentence in brackets didn't come out right...

It should have said;

"Not that your comments aren't welcome..."

Yes, I noted that they work differently to others...

In the absence of pointers to the contrary, I think I am going to put this on the wishlist!

I'll leave the thread unticked for a day or so. I'm seeing my dad on Friday and if there've been no negative comments by then I'll tell him his gift problem is solved!

Thanks again,

I like vinnyT use the wacom intuos here at work and can only reiterate what vinnyT has said about it.

Well worth the investment.

The pertinent isssue here is price!

The valito is about £40, the next one up more than double that.

All this does look promising!

Dad has ordered one for me and I shall be getting it next weekend!

I'll report joy or sucess with use for the benefit of any future searchers.

a "tidy up" and notice I haven't ticked this...

Well I'm about to do so, and I'm about to get my dad one for his birthday!
