Overall satisfaction is what they often say, however there are customers whose expectation were not met. Someone commented that it lacks precision and can’t do a detailed work. And pens must be in the right angle or correct location for it to be recognized. And the drivers are sometimes hard to recognize too, they when it’s plugged in and can be read they need to unplug and re-plug for the screen to read it again.

Based from the customer reviews this product is recommendable especially to those who are interested to learn and has the passion for computer graphics.
