Artist of the Moment

Hi, I'm Kori. I joined GASR in 2014 and have grown to love the community and people here. I'm a self taught hobby artist but I've liked to draw and paint ever since I can remember. I didn't get into using a tablet till a few years ago- and I love it. My family has always been a really big supporter in whatever I do, so I hope to continue and make it a more serious thing. I believe there's always room for me to improve so that's what I plan to do.

Hi :)

Today I got offered an Intuos 3 tablet. (I think the model number is ptz-1231w, but i'll check that tomorrow.)
I can buy it for £10, but it has no pen.

I have two questions about it.

First off, does anybody currently use one? Or has used one? If so, would you recommend it? I like to be thorough before I buy these things xD

Secondly, I currently have a bamboo pen and touch tablet. Would the pen work on the Intuos? Or are they not transferable?

Thank you :D

First of all, pens are very expensive, but most of them are compatible.
Second, I cant recommend that tablet to you because I haven't used it.

All I will tell you is that looking up the model number on Amazon, the tablets go for almost 500 dollars. Honestly, if someone is offering you it for 10 Euros I would think something was broken. I bought my tablet for 79 dollars and it runs wonderfully. I currently use the Intuos Pen Small Tablet and I don't regret buying it. I also had the bamboo pen and touch and it was great until my brother broke it but that is also a great tablet.

Here is the link to the model number you provided. link
The choice is up to you darling. I would recommend the Intuos to you because its small and very easy to use and install and I have had no problems with it. Or you can keep the tablet you have. I just think something might be off if you are being offered a tablet for so little.

I wish you luck darling. ♥

I'm just a bit confused, as reading online some sites are saying only intuos pens work, where as others have said bamboo pens work too.

As for the price, I work for a computer company. We get lots of things like that in, and they can't sell it on eBay or anything, as without a pen, it can't be tested properly. So anybody that wants it can pretty much have it :)

Thank you very much for your input :)

You are very welcome
And my bamboo pen works with my intuos touch.
