Customer Review

Reviewed in India on 9 June 2020
Its a must buy for every academician during these lockdown times.

I use it mainly on shared online whiteboards for discussing academic related stuffs with my advisors and fellow researchers.

I use it on Arch Linux. It is super easy to get it working on Linux. Just plug and play. A very famous opensource driver for wacom tablets will already be installed as a kernal module in most of the recent Linux distros. If not, you can easily install it.

There is no noticeable latency. The pressure sensing works great! Pressing harder gives you thicker lines.

If you want to do digital art on Linux, use InkScape. If you just want a white board (virtual), use OpenBoard. Both of them are very good.

The writing area is quite sufficient. I don't think a larger one would have made much of a difference in overall experience. For most cases, the small one will do the job.

For people who never heard heard of this company: Wacom is a Japan based company which makes quality stuff. One of the top companies which makes pen tabs. You can buy it without worrying about the quality.
