Turcom Huion drawing tablet

Got the Turcom Huion drawing tablet from Amazon today. I just spent several hours trying it out. My verdict: Piece of shit. It works with Windows, but not very well. No matter what you set the pen sensitivity levels to, it doesn't work right. Not for very long, anyway. At first, I couldn't get the brushes to work right with it. Then when I finally did get MyPaint's brushes to work right with it, I got two ears and a chin drawn before it just stopped working altogether. (Well, the pen still moved the cursor, but pressing down did nothing.) Tried restarting the driver program, no help. Tried restarting MyPaint, no help. Even tried restarting the whole computer, no help.

So yeah, pile of shit. I am returning it. The Bamboo may not work with Windows, but at least when it does work (on Ubuntu), it works well.

Don't waste your money on the Turcom Huion drawing tablet, boys and girls.
