    Q550

    Any new pen fix hacks workarounds.

    I can live with pretty much everything else but I need a new pen.

    (currently using the silver one from the HTC Flyer IIRC).

    Maybe it shoud be its own thread.

    I am pretty sure I was extremely tired when I wrote this.
    Have they released a pen that works better than the HTC flyer one, for the Q550. I am thinking of upgrading to win 8, but the pen is driving me nuts.

    After taking a two month break from classes, my Flyer pen even with a new battery does not register pressure clicks, the cursor will track around the screen but will not "click" my original pen that came with the Q550 could have a better feel. Lots of other brands like wacom heck there is even a variety of capacitive pens. Was just hoping that a new pen that will work better for the Q has been released.

    You might try cleaning the contacts. http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/hp-slate/48371-inside-pen.html

    BTW, just bought a Q552. Anything to look out for if I consider upgrading to W8 Pro? I know there are no N-Trig drivers later than the beta W8 drivers last summer. How about everything else? Any problems I should look for upgrading the Fuji to W8?

    Edit: So there is still no W8 graphics driver for the N2600 atom. Nice going Intel.

    Hi guys

    I'm a french fan of the Q550 .

    I hesitated before I decide to buy this unit, and I have long traveled the web, including your board .

    Then I found a sale, I had the Q550 with all accessories (usb support, protective cover, second battery etc ...) for 320$ .

    It seemed just return the precious help found on your board, make a brief review of this machine and its windows 8 Operating Condition according to my own use.

    Particularly asked me greatly that question before the purchase, management Full HD 1080p, and the management of RAW files (photo files)

    Thank you again for the wealth of information found on this forum.
    Sorry for my "Google translate" english .

    Here is the video of my review of the Q550 : Q550(2) on Vimeo

    @dragonfly_1976

    do you've got the Z670 or the Z690 version of the Q550? Im also interested in what drivers you're using. Inking seems far smoother than it did on my Q550 with the final version of windows 8.

    Hi Tourniquet

    My Q550 is the version with Z670 .
    For the version of the Ntrig drivers, i've not my Q550 with me, i tell you exactly that later .

    I f i remember correctly there is here : Downloads & Drivers - N-trig

    Important : Don't forget to install .Net Framework 3.5 for windows 8, i think it's really important for for optimum performances : Installing the .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows 8
