    A MUST for the Wacom Tablet

    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?

          Comments about Wacom Bamboo Tablet Wireless Accessory Kit:

          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.

                      Only thing I dont like is the you cant use bluetooth, but a usb adapter

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

                                        I've been using this kit for about two weeks and its amazing, no problems at all, I really love it.
                                        The battery charges in about 5-6 hours (full charge) and I've been using it for about 6-8 hours per day with photoshop (photo editing) after 4 days I still have 49% of charge.

                                          My computer setup is in the living room on the family tv. I do everything from the sofa. My mouse, keyboard and now tablet must be wireless.

                                          It works perfectly though I only used it 2 hours yesterday so far.

                                              I've had nothing but issues with the wireless connectivity with my Intous 5 medium tablet and the kit. I am constantly updating firmware and talking with Tech Support and have not found a solution that works for the long term.
                                              Without warning I get disconnected having to reconnect, the mapping has be reset every time I start to use my tablet.
                                              Its very unfortunate as it was great when it worked, but I have reverted to using my tablet connected to my computer directly and found it is way more reliable.
