|Another sad G-pen, being ignored by it's tablet.|
So my question is this: Is the Genius tablet just a really shoddy product, or is this fail that inevitably happens at all avoidable or fixable? It is worth noting that I do not use my tablet on a daily basis, but once in a blue moon for a few days and then again a few weeks later, so it can hardly be a wear and tear issue.I have had it for under two years. I know people who are still using their Wacom's ten years on.
I have Googled my problem endlessly today and all I find are a bunch of other unhappy souls with the same problem... and no solution. If anyone out there has an answer, or would like to send me a decent tablet, I would be ecstatic to hear from you. After years of using this make of product and encouraging others to buy it even though EVERY TIME it fails me, I must deduce that I am not all that clever, and neither is Genius.
Update: I have found somewhere to buy a Wacom tablet in South Africa! The on-line store: Loot.co.za. Don't know why I didn't think of them. I discovered them a few years back when I was looking for a particular art book and they were the only place that had it. I also discovered that they were R200 cheaper on another art book I had been looking at at Exclusive Books so I bought it straight away! Their priced are fantastic, cheaper every time, and their service is great, delivering to your door, and usually ahead of schedule. So now I just need to decide which Wacom I want from this lovely selection... and wait for my next pay cheque... :) Yay Loot!
