    I use this tablet with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, running on a 17" gamer laptop with Windows 7, so I do some post-processing in the field.

    I use the medium sized tablet. It is still small enough to pack inside my 17" laptop case with the computer. The Bluetooth adapter makes it cordless and easy to handle while away from the desk. I can even use it in my lap and get up and move around without worrying about jerking the USB cable. It even has a built-in storage compartment for the Bluetooth receiver when it is not being used.

    As far as I have been able to determine, there is no difference in response while wireless compared to being connected via USB.

    It will also turn itself off to save the battery when the computer powers down or after a period of no input. This has saved me from running the battery down many times.

    In my opinion, this adapter is worth the modest price for the convenience it provides, with no drop performance.

    It sounded pretty good to have wireless capability. So, I bought this. Indeed it's been working reasonably good. In my use of the past two weeks, battery's standby (power-saving) mode lasted about one full week. It lasted about three to five days using pen/touch always. On my second thought, however, I wonder if I really needed this connector. This set requires two USB ports to recharge its battery and to host a tiny wireless receiver. My iMac is already full of the port use. I need to buy a power-assisted wireless hub soon. I don't understand why Wacom still can't utilize Bluetooth connection to eliminate its USB receiver (-2). The manual does not explain any way to set up the stuffs. I'm techno savvy but... This is perhaps really puzzling for everyone. It took about 15 minutes for me to figure out the solution -- finally by watching Youtube video (-1). It's OK for personal use but then why wireless needed for frequent needs of recharge?

                I didn't love this with my Mac. I had to manually turn it on every time I used the computer. Since I use my wacom tablet in the place of a mouse, this wasn't acceptable. Also, many times the wireless connection didn't work.

                    Comments about Wacom Bamboo Tablet Wireless Accessory Kit:

                    I have been using my Wacom tablet now for about 4 months and questioned if I would every really need the wireless accessory kit. It is a must - very happy with the overall performance and excellent life from the battery. Although you don't really gain anything in the USB category you will like the lack of another cable on your desktop. Very easy to set up but would recommend a quick YouTube video tutorial - there are several.

                      This is a nice addition, but a bit pricey. It seems to work well, and the tablet automatically goes to sleep when not in use so that preserves the battery life. For $ this would be a must have addition.

                            Wacom has finally made a wireless tablet affordable and most useful! Install was a breeze, however (and why I'm not giving this product 4 stars), I have had a few technical issues where the communication stopped work. This was solved (at much trial and error) by moving the usb unit to a different port. Since then, everything has been functioning nicely.

                              I use this with my Wacom Bamboo CTH-670. Barely touched the tablet without it, because I keep breaking my micro-usb cords. With this, my use has tripled, and I LOVE IT!

                              Great design, integrated into the frame of whatever Wacom you are purchasing it for. Good battery life so far, though i have no real clue on longevity or duration as it's still very new.

                              If this thing gives out every year, I'd still consider it a needed purchase (like a heavily worn mouse, though it'd drop to 3 stars. The future will tell.

                                    Frees me from wires when I decide to move my laptop to the living room. While it does need to charge up with a wire (which is expected), once it's done I'm free to work with no wires. I should also note that it can be used while charging. I've only had the wireless kit for about two weeks now and have no regrets on this purchase.

                                      I was hesitant to buy this kit given a few reviews I read but am glad I did. Setup was incredibly simple.

                                      It is very easy for a desk to become overly cluttered, which makes me crazy. With this wireless my desk is more open, it is much easier to move the table out of the way when I am not using it and I am now able to give presentations from across the room using the tablet.

                                      I wish it charged faster but charging it is quick and simple using the detachable USB cable that arrived with the tablet.

                                      The great thing about the battery, it allows me the ability to use less cables... The bad I still loose a USB port.

                                        It's a nice idea use my wacom without cable and you can place the usb transmitter inside your tablet,
                                        Only thing I dont like is the you cant use bluetooth, but a usb adapter
                                        on the rest i love it

                                        The cord that comes with the tablet is kind of short, so this makes it nice for sitting back and drawing.
