    Out of those pens, I can personally recommend the Gateway E155c / C120x. I own one, and it's pretty readily available online for a decent price, and the pressure curve feels pretty good. It's a small one-button pen with an eraser at the back.

    This pen seems to work well and is a little more accurate that the included stylus. Still exploring, but so far, so good.

    Any luck with the eraser or the 2nd side button? My impression is no one has been able to get those to work (the eraser being the much more important of the two), though there seem to be confusing reports in this thread.

    Also, for any who are interested, Woot has the LT1423P for $200 + $5 shipping today, which it sounds like is a great price (given that folks were considering this a worthwhile purchase at higher prices previously). Item is new, and with 3 year warranty from Lenovo.

    I just ordered one. Hopefully I will be pleased. :)

    I bite that bait

    Had it worked as well as we had initially hoped, I thought $500ish was already in the impulse buy range, $200 is almost too low to pass up....despite all its issues and little quirks.

    I've received mine, and initial general impressions are positive. :)

    However, I am having some trouble with some graphics programs that I'm trying out. Has anyone had any luck using Mischief (https://www.madewithmischief.com) or Autodesk Sketchbook (https://www.sketchbook.com) with this tablet monitor? When I try to interact with Mischief via the tablet it is super-laggy (and curves often get straightened), but Mischief draws fine if I'm on my main screen and using the mouse. Sketchbook doesn't seem to recognize the stylus hardly at all as I can only draw with my finger--the stylus has no effect (though it does register something because after using the stylus the Undo arrow lights up, indicating there is something that can be Undone).

    ArtRage draws just fine on the tablet though, so I know it is possible.

    Are you using the wireless version?

    Hmm. Haven't used mine in a long time. What OS are you running? I'm going to need to test with those applications.
