Conclusion:

At the end of the day there really isn’t too much to dislike about the Genius EasyPen F610E Pen Tablet.  It’s a pretty solid product that has a lot of features, good performance and a decent-sized area for a good price.  I was very impressed with the quality of the product overall.  Even though this is one of the thinnest tablets I’ve used, it still has a nice rigid feel to it and doesn’t flex much.  This allows you to use it on a desk or on your knee with ease.  The only downside to the quality is the fixed USB cable.  It would be great if this could be disconnected and replaced with a different one if need be.

The bundled accessories are more than adequate to accompany a tablet of this price range and size.  It has everything you need to get going and stay going as it includes some extra pen-tips and a puller.  The software bundle is decent – but not great.  It’s a bit of mixed bag in this category as I simply don’t ever see myself using Corel Painter Essentials.

Installation was a breeze and the software features are handy as you can customize the screen the tablet works on as well as buttons on the side.  This is a nice touch for sure and makes it a little more useable on systems with multiple displays.

In terms of performance, there is a lot to be happy about.  The tablet works well, is light and the pen is very responsive.  It worked seamlessly in all of the applications I used and even for general Windows OS navigation, it works well.  If you are doing a lot of photo editing or drawing, the EasyPen F610E can help you navigate your OS without the need to grab another input device for a few simple tasks.  It does it quickly and easily.

The Genius EasyPeb F610E is a bargain at $99 and you can find it even cheaper than that online.  It seems to have good quality, excellent performance and an average software bundle.  When you combine this with a bargain price-tag, you have a winner.  While the Genius name may not inspire as much confidence as Wacom, we’ve had no issues with this tablet during our review and the support from Genius seems to be getting better and better here in North America.  I see no reason why you should grab a more expensive tablet from another company – if you need a 6”+ x 10” tablet.  This one does very well.

I can easily recommend this tablet to anyone looking for a tablet that is one a budget.  The EasyPen F610E offers great performance without breaking the bank.  Other than a couple of small issues, it’s a winner.

I’d like to thank Genius for sending the EasyPen F610E for review.  This is a very decent Pen Tablet that can offer you a lot of features for a small price.
