What customers say about "Key Specs"
Iskn Slate 2+ Pencil And Paper Graphic Tablet
  • It can be used with Bluetooth as well as USB lead.
  • With The Slate 2+ your works became digital in the second you start using it.
  • It's easy to use and its work properly.
  • It was always very inaccurate, poor and unstable.
  • Not accurate in the slightest.
Wacom Bamboo Slate Slate Digital Notepad A4 (Letter Size)
  • The digital render was impeccable; the pressure sensitivity of the pen was so precious that it could detect a wide range of both light and heavy lines alike.
  • Finally, there’s the pen, which has an ergonomic triangular design, soft-touch grip and pressure-sensitive tip.
  • Active area of work delightful I can easily use my whole hand for a more accurate drawing.
  • It wouldn't be great for drawing, pressure sensitivity isn't amazing.
  • Get it for any sort of sketching/note taking, I wouldn't use it to create actual art, since the pressure sensitivity is very limited.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Iskn Slate 2+ Pencil And Paper Graphic Tablet
  • This product is amazing, great size.
  • Compact size of The Slate makes it a great travel companion.
  • It is light and it can be easily carried in a purse, or a backpack.
  • Great size, highly recommended.
  • The size of the drawing surface is unpleasant.
Wacom Bamboo Slate Slate Digital Notepad A4 (Letter Size)
  • It is not bulky and remains quite slim in design feeling very much like a normal paper in size.
  • I got the large slate. It's the perfect size, like an overlarge tablet computer. Fits notebooks just fine.
  • I bought the large because I like the cover, my husband has the smaller size. I will tell you that they both work great, however, the smaller is more convenient.
  • This is an innovative product that inputs data from a notepad and transfers it to a smartphone or tablet. The product I received was the size of my iPad mini.
  • It's a little too heavy and big comparing to the small size version, but the size necessary for conferences.

Wacom Bamboo Slate Slate Digital Notepad A4 (Letter Size)
  • While it doesn't "register" light pressure writing v. heavy pressure writing it captures my notes exactly as I wrote them.
  • The pen itself has a smooth flow, I have not looked to see what refill notepads or replacement pens would cost. I am sure this will last for a long time.
  • The response is instant and a wonderful feeling of pressure level. Notes and drawings are good.
  • It looks chic and of good quality but I wish the writing surface was hard and smooth instead of being thin vinyl or whatever it is.
  • The feeling of pen on the paper not smooth .No handwriting recognition. Sketches can't be edited.

Wacom Bamboo Slate Slate Digital Notepad A4 (Letter Size)
  • Write or draw on the paper and press the button when you get to the end of the page, or are finished working on that page and it is uploaded to the iPad.
  • This is very simple, and it comes ready charged. There is only one button, you press it for a few seconds to power on then a green LED lights up.
  • There is a button on the bottom left of the slate and a micro USB port along the bottom edge. Everything is located very convenient and there is no random possibility of pressing a button.
  • The pen is not very good. It twists to extend the tip of the pen but as you write the pressure from writing pushes the tip back in so you are constantly having to twist it again.
  • It appears as if this product is not compatible with a desktop or laptop computer. It seems to sync only to a mobile phone or iPad.
