"Overall worth it (as a student note taker)"4.0 starson by gv381622
Pros: you can make graphs quickly, no batteries, looks nice
Cons: corded, software applicatoins only mediocre, takes a bit of getting used to
Summary: So I bought this product for taking notes, specifically to draw graphs on the fly for Microsoft Word, it works great for that purpose, I wish it wasn't cabled (less cables the better) It's great thta you don't have to deal with a battery, the pen feels nice, could be heavier, the area is a bit small, maybe the 6x8 would be worth it, but you can definitely work with the 4x5, mouse is good, again, limited area to work with. Overall works great, would recommend this buy. Applicatoins are a bit weak, they're not as professional as they should be, word crashed on me once, when you use it with outlook it has to be in some Office 97 format or something, they really need to work on making the software as the hardware is useless without the software. but programs that come with it suffice, enjoy.
