Passing the savings on to you!

edited October 2007 in Social Entropy++
So normally I just ignore all the sale flier crap that get through the spam filters but occasionally something fun catches my eye. I got an email from geeks.com for a free graphics tablet when you purchase another one. I don't know jack about graphics tablets so it is likely that the tablet is complete shit, but someone might benefit so here you go. http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=WP5540&cat=MOU and use the code FREETAB to get the free one when you check out.


In before someone calls me a plant.

    My eyes are all messed up this morning, so I thought this said "Pissing the savings on to you!"

    This is not an acceptable opinion.

    Yes you do.

    I've bought a couple things from there. It's ok as long as you aren't expecting a high-quality or recently released product.

    Free tablet?

    I bet it has 1 level of pressure sensitivity, and the eraser is cosmetic.

    I had something close to that once. I never could get it to work properly, but it had a wacky system of cables between it and the PC, including an inexplicable pair of VGA connectors that only connected to each other.

    I still wonder what manner of computer destruction would happen if you plugged one end of it into an actual graphics card and the other into a USB port.

    1) Would you like to take a survey?

    2) How do you feel about surveys?

    3) What do you think of the person giving you this survey?

    4) Do you feel differently about this survey then most?

    5) How many surveys have you filled out in your lifetime?

    I think you can buy two infinately better tablets on newegg for the price of one of those. I'd take it for free but theres no way I'd pay for it.

    How would you go about making a Cintiq? I could see making a non-LCD one, but wouldn't an LCD add a bit of complexity?

    It absolutely does.

    Basically, you take both elements apart and combine them into one thing. As long as you avoid interference from the LCD screen, things are fine.

    I actually bought that exact tablet a while back. It's really not all that bad. I mean I don't have a whole lot of experience in the field, and it is most definitely not a wacom but I mean for casual random tablet usage it really isn't that bad. Granted I can't get the drivers to install on my Vista laptop but what's new there? It's just a regular USB tablet with a AAA battery powered stylus. Also, I only paid about $30 for this, so that may be somewhat influencing my opinion on the matter.


    But aside from it not working on Vista, I don't have any real complaints, though I also don't use it for anything outside of random doodling and photo editing so that may not really mean a whole lot. I'd say if you're not sure how much you really want/need a tablet I would give it a shot. I don't really use it enough as is to warrant spending any more money on a better tablet, but I do enjoy having one around.


    edit: Also, I believe the DigiPro brand is just the US offshoot of a Korean company and I'll be damned if I could even find a website for it so don't expect to be able to download drivers or anything. All you get is what's on the CD.

    I've dabbled.

    I've got a 15 inch LCD that I don't use, so I took it apart. The Wacom uses a magnetic sensor pad, and there's a small margin (like 9mm) of height where it still detects the pen.

    So you can lay the sensor pad behind the LCD portion, position the top lights and it should work fine. I'm going to lay a very thin clear acrylic sheet on top to avoid damaging the LCD.

    Pretty shotty assembly on the battery connection, too. I was afraid I was going to break the thing off trying to get the battery in there.
