Husband loves it

Summary: I bought this for my husband for our first Christmas together and he still uses and loves it 6 years later. The only reason I've given it 4 stars is due to having to replace the pen after it broke. Luckily, it did last for over 4 years and the replacement was reasonably priced on here. Of course he wants the bigger tablet now, but this one works just fine for his comic strips.
Summary: It came like new and with all its parts, but I would have appreciated at least one replacement nib... Also my Corel Painter Essentials always seems to be "Not Responding" :( I heard others have this problem but my sisters Wacom Bamboo Craft has the nibs and is responding.
Summary: Stylish. With 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity, it is totally adequate for navigation and tasks like video editing. Professionals *may* find the Intuos line necessary for digital painting, but for everything else the input sensitivity is great. Touch works ok but I don't use it. Works great with dual monitors. I needed a tablet this large with my setup (21.5 inch imac plus 23 inch secondary display).
Summary: My first Wacom tablet was the Original "Intuos" 4x5 back in 1998, I loved it so much that the next year I purchased the 12x18 monster! I currently use a Cintiq 21UX and a Fujitsu Tablet, so all my digitizers are screen based. I purchased this for my nephew as a gift as he wants to be a designer just like his uncle (good boy!). Below are couple of instructions I gave to him as he was trying to figure out the tablet.
Summary: I love this tablet it's great for graphic design and for the first months I used it I was in love and then the program seemed to get less and less user friendly. after talking with a friend who recommended the tablet to me about this issue, she said she had recently experienced the same thing and had been informed that sometimes this can happen with this brand when used with pc's and that they're best used with Mac computers.
Summary: I bought this for work since I need to do quick drawings for physics class lectures/problem sets which are basically enormously time-consuming in powerpoint (e.g. draw a wiggly line or inductor symbol or resistor or field lines or a cup of water with powerpoint?!). I also do derivations of equations for work on paper but keep losing the papers or misplace them or have 5 different versions so I want to have a centralized place to keep handwritten PDF notes --- so a tablet...
Summary: After writing this I was afraid of TLDR issues. Here is the short and sweet - if you are going to get a Wacom tablet, and you know you are going to use it, save your lunch money and get the Intuos4. End of story - if you get a Bamboo and later try an Intuos4 you'll kick yourself, I guarantee it. Higher accuracy, higher resolution, higher sensitivity, tilt recognition, higher data rate (more responsive), better construction, better warranty.
Summary: The low profile design gives this tablet a natural feel which makes drawing and editing a breeze. I have been using tablet PCs for the past few years, and it is difficult to draw on a surface that is a few inches off of the desk. My old Wacom tablet was also a bit thicker. Pressure sensitivity is great on the pen, allows me to make selections for my photos with a lot of ease, as well as draw.
