Anyone got information they would care to share on graphic tablets. I recently tried a Hyper Pen 6000 from Aiptek supplied via Serif and the darned thing connected via the mouse port plus a RS232 port and ended up crashing the PC - it's going back for a refund!
I then purchased a Trust TB-4200. It's described as wireless but connects via USB. The instructions that came with it are abysmal. It has a clear overlay that's meant to aid image tracing but with anything placed between the overlay the pen fails to make a mark and goes off into file opening sort of mode (its got a mouse equivalent button on the side plus the point acts as a single click in some circumstances). It does have a wireless mouse that seems to just about passably work.
I think a lot of the problem with it rests with the absence of clear instructions - like the overlay wasn’t obviously an overlay. I reckon the problem with the pen rests in settings. Had there been a half decent user guide then I have a feeling it could straight away be a pretty useful bit of kit but having to dabble makes it a huge frustration.
