    "Cheaper than an iPad, larger than a phone, this nicely sized tablet is fun to use and large enough to work with documents easily (without a lot of scrolling and resizing). I use it often to watch streaming video while I'm working."

    "Well, the website has it's own presentation style - not really sure if it's for me. The Eve V seems to have been community developed and funded really quickly, though I'm not certain of it's staying power in the market alongside the other tablets that are being offered currently. I've personally never heard of it but I can't see it being the worst first tablet purchase someone could make as a consumer, though the price is quite high."

    "I needed a new tablet to replace my old Samsung one and I found this one. I absolutely love it. I'm so happy it came with a pen, because it is just amazing. The tablet is a lot brighter and faster than my old one. It doesn't lock up and freeze like the old one either. I'm so happy with this one."

    "I stumbled across the Wacom -Intuos Draw Small Pen Tablet while I was browsing through tablets trying to find the best one. The Wacom isn't a typical tablet.....it is specifically meant for drawing and creating. While this tablet didn't solve my problem, I still think it is really cool. If I were an artist I would definitely buy this tablet."

    "For the price of the tablet, this is actually quite a good tablet. I think it's a really good device for beginner as well. It's easy to use, easy to setup and it comes with a decent art pack as well. The wired connection is really easy to setup, it's compatible for both my windows and MAC computers and there is a USB connection as well. It doesn't have a wireless option which i would have liked to have had but I can live without it for now. It also comes with a lot of pre-loaded software; some of it I found useful, others not so much. I removed what I didn't need and found other compatible software to install. Again, I think it's a good device overall. It's fun, engaging and I've been able to create some decent artwork with it. "

    "Doodling and drawing is something i have always loved to do. Years back i got a tiny Wacom tablet and it was tiny. Looking for an update i was seeking other brands as all the Wacom are crazy priced. For a fraction of what i paid for before i get a tablet that is almost twice the size. Giving me 10 inch by 6 inch drawing surface. The pen works with what i think is magnets or something as the pen needs no battery."

The screen is just big enough to be crisp and clear but not too big where it's bulky and in your way. It feels like holding a little futuristic book sometimes, I love it!

    "The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 12.3" is not one of the best tablets. The device is everything a creative person wants in a laptop and it is rather convenient. However I have rated this product a 2 star because on receipt of the item I had issues with pressing the start and Internet button. They just would not work. I massaged the company and it has been a month or more and no response. I got some help. But again I am in a problem where the computer won't start up..... I am one for happy reviews but this is unacceptable. And I want to know what's wrong with my costly device"
