    Luckily, you don't need to remove the s-pen to use another pen unlike with the Android tablets. The disadvantages that we have with no Wacom feel drivers are:

    1. Can't adjust pressure (I think Samsung is expecting it to be like Android apps where each app has their own settings)
    2. Can't reassign buttons. RadialMenu works but it has drawbacks with the eraser.
    3. Old apps won't work with the tablet.
    4. No way to recalibrate the pen.

    You can?? Sorry, I'm new at this... but I thought the connections for SATA 3 and PCIe are different?

    Windows has its own pen calibration, actually! It's a 16-point calibration under Tablet PC Settings in Control Panel. There is also a 279-point calibration done via cmd floating around these forums somewhere. Although it'll probably need adjusting since I think that was based off of a 1366x768 screen.

    @fvig2001, Glad to hear the s-oen can stay stowed away without causing issues.

    The whole driver thing boggles the mind! If Samsung have restricted access to the Wacom drivers for whatever reason you would think they would emulate the features in their own driver. What the hell goes through the minds of the people in these companies?

    I might be mis-reading but.., did you miss this all-important newsflash? The driver issue is solved, as per Selofain's post here:

    That only solves the button reassignment for the stylus's button. The eraser is broken when used with this. I actually don't use the button at all, so I might just disable it by disabling the service. @Selofain, that's good to know, at least it would fix the minor offset with the tablet. Thankfully, drawing is great on the tablet. I am so not used to ArtRage being so fast. I really need the XP Pen Remote since it's a pain to work with ArtRage without some kind of keyboard. I couldn't even find a way to adjust the brush size without a keyboard.

    Okay, so you were aware. Sorry! -For me that was the make-or-break feature that was missing before, so I'm quite happy to see it checked off the 'want' list.

    Unless the pressure sensitivity is a lot too much in either direction, I'm more or less fine with the standard settings. Do you find it too soft or too hard? Would you classify this as a buy/not buy problem? How does the factory setting compare to the old Penabled pens would you say?

    Thanks!

    The pressure is fine for me at least with the pen. The eraser is kind of in a too soft that I'm worried about the screen getting scratched if I use it in the long run. I'm used to 256 levels of pressure on my m200 and the standard pressure in Galaxy Note tablets/phones, so I don't know if I'm a good reference. I'd buy it even though I've crapped all over the tablet. I just like options and I hate it when it is artificially restricted. I mean, the device's name uses Wacom style name, WCOMxxxx. It should be allowed to use feel drivers.

    Both are M.2 SSD connectors. It just depends on whether the motherboard supports PCIe NVME, which it does. I replaced the stock 256gb Lite-On SATA M.2 SSD (500mb/s speed) with a Samsung PM961 PCIe SSD (3200mb/s speed). Tested with CrystalDiskMark app. Super fast

    Thanks for your reply.

    So, can I confirm that the connection of the stock SSD is not same as what is being indicated by the red arrow (below)?
