So I have been thinking of getting a new Wacom tablet. This is why.
The button on my pen broke, or fell off so I took a paper clip and cut off a small chunk of it and bent it into a un-stapled staple then taped it on to the pen. It works really well and I haven't had any problems with it so far.
The connector cord has started to become undone and frayed. I had to duct tape the cord back on to the Wacom tablet in hopes that the actual cord would not become disconnected and snap. The duct tape just seems to come undone and make the corner sticky, not the best fix but it is working better then both the electric tape and masking tape.
I plan to upgrade to the Intious 4 once I get some more money, maybe after I finish my latest freelance project. I probably should get a carrying case or something to prevent these problems again.
