FINALLY I was able to get my new tablet.. ended up going through a bunch of shit with the post office/my apartment complex (if we've had parcel boxes on site all this time why the fuck didnt they just put it there in the first place but I guess I'm smarter than the average joe but WHATEVER)
I ended up going for the wacom pen&touch after hearing it was the easiest switch from graphires, and if I have any problems, it'll be a lot easier finding help to fix a wacom than a monoprice, from what I understand..
anyway, first impression is not good. I feel like I have to press down harder than I'm used to doing because of the surface texture, but who knows maybe I just need to get used to it.
I'm a little dissapointed that I can't use the touch features on the tablet with the pen still in my hand. It sounded really nifty and would help me out a lot, but the touch features don't activate until I actually move the pen completely away from it. I'd heard this was the case, but I had hopes.
I also see myself losing my pen a lot more often than I already did, but hey the monoprice would've been like that too. I'd like to know why they did away with the pen tray graphire's had ]: It was so convenient! The little sleeve for the pen is so much of a perfect fit it's not really convenient to just slip the pen through to hold when I'm just taking a few minute break..
I dunno, no one's around for me to talk to so I'm just blah-ing over here since everyone over here helped me choose thought someone might be interested to know how I'm doing with it
I'm not overly worried since I do have 30 days to return it if I don't like it.
this just in, my dog laying his head on the tablet DOES active the touch features. I'm surprised since his head is 99% fluff.
