Where Wacom lead, other manufacturers follow in their footsteps hoping to pick up the stragglers who are more price conscious than image or brand affected. Although, having said that the graphics tablet products by Genius are by no means of lower quality or standard. In fact, if you are looking for the most bang for your buck, the Genius range may be the better option.

The Genius MousePen 8×6 is a USB product designed for both the home and the office. It gives you a spacious 8 by 6 inch active area to work with and also has a series of programable “hot cells” around the edge which allow you to quickly and easily access commonly used functions, menu items or macros. The supplied software comes pre-configured with “Hot Cell” combinations for the common graphics applications such as Adobe Photoshop or the supplied 30 day trial of Corel Painter 8.

As with the comparable Wacom graphics tablets, the Genius MousePen 8×6 comes supplied with a cordless pen with 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity. When turned on it’s end, the pen also doubles as an eraser, quickly switching to the erase tool in the relevant application. Also provided is a cordless tablet mouse with a 3D scroll wheel which operates in the same way as a normal cordless optical mouse when used in conjunction wit the MousePen tablet.

So if you value price over popular, named brands and a possible perceived benefit of using a more professional product, the Genius MousePen is perfect for you. It is lightweight, compact, has a large active area but only truthfully supports Windows computers. The Genius MousePen 8×6 is a perfect entry level graphics tablet for the whole family whether you are a digital artist or someone who simply wants to try their hand at being creative.
