What customers say about "Key Specs"
Wacom Bamboo Slate (K100878) 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.
Wacom Bamboo Folio (CDS810G) Smart pad, Large, Dark Gray
  • The inkspace app could use updates so the notes can be organized into folders instead of by month.
  • Comfortable pen, good quality and I really liked it, I recommend it.
  • I did not expect that I would like this pen, it can make excellent drawings, it understands what I want to do.
  • The pen that came with it 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.
  • The tablet works well, the pen is a bit thin for my liking, as I am use to a thicker and gel ink pen.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Wacom Bamboo Slate (K100878) 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 Folio (CDS810G) Smart pad, Large, Dark Gray
  • The folio is a little large but not much larger than the paper so not sure how it could be improved.
  • Wacom's pen is much lighter and feels better in the hand than my previous.
  • I immediately liked the size. It could fit into my everyday purses and wasn’t overly heavy.
  • I wish the pen was a little thinner. No biggie but I am used to using smaller diameter pens.
  • It's a little too heavy and big comparing to the small size version, but the size necessary for conferences.

What customers say about "Display Parameters"
Wacom Bamboo Slate (K100878) 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 Folio (CDS810G) Smart pad, Large, Dark Gray
  • Nice tablet with a responsive screen and a convenient pen included, I'm satisfied.
  • This is a really great tablet that allows me to draw great pictures, the screen quality is impressive.
  • The pen fits very well with the screen, now I really get beautiful drawings.
  • I have been using the tablet for about two months, problems with the screen started, as if it had ceased to understand me.
  • Sometimes it seems to me that the screen works differently, sometimes it’s good and sometimes it’s bad. I do not understand what is the reason.

What customers say about "Features"
Wacom Bamboo Slate (K100878) 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.
Wacom Bamboo Folio (CDS810G) Smart pad, Large, Dark Gray
  • The live sync is awesome as well as the ability to write and it still pick up even at 200 page thickness.
  • It's a tool that I've never experienced before. It's really cool and useful to whom likes writing with a pen to a paper, but transfer them to the iPad or cloud!
  • The Bluetooth is flawless, I don't think I've ever had to pair it more than the initial setup to my android phone and android tablet.
  • The amount of ink the pen holds is not very much so within roughly 45 days I already needed to replace the ink cartridge (maybe a couple notepads).
  • The refills are difficult to find right now, not sure if it is due to being a new product or there just aren't that many purchased yet to have the ink refill readily available.
