Genius G-Pen 4500
Released July, 2004
The Pros:Offers a large degree of pressure sensitivity for editing photos in an organic way.
The Cons:Tends to skip around a bit unintentionally. Pressure sensitivity in the pen is fragile, tends to wear out within a week of use. Directions aren't very clear and completely incorrect at parts.
The Genius G-Pen 4500 is a tablet used to draw on a PC in a similar fashion to writing with a pen and paper. The cordless pen is sensitive to 1024 levels of pressure, allowing lines of various thicknesses to be drawn in reaction to how hard the pen is pressed to the pad.

A "hot-key" area on the pad allows for quick access of office and Internet functions. Two buttons on the pen can be used as left and right mouse buttons, and a separate cordless mouse with a scroll button is also included. The Annotate All software allows quick annotations to be made in almost any document, and the Annotate for Word application makes this function completely compatible with Microsoft Word. PenPresenter is also included, which helps to navigate presentations and make handwritten notes on the fly.

tends to skip around a bit unintentionally
pressure sensitivity in the pen is fragile, tends to wear out within a week of use
directions aren't very clear and completely incorrect at parts
takes some getting used to, just feels awkward at first
maneuvering the cursor to a specific spot on the screen quickly is not easy, a mouse feels more precise
the included software is awkward to use, actually makes things take longer
