Excerpt: I cannot live without my Wacom, as a lefty photographer doing a lot of retouching it is a must. There is no way any person can retouch with a mouse with the same precission I do with the Wacom. If my account is right I have been using a Wacom for over 20 years.
Pros: Durable, Easily Viewed, Lightweight, Long Lasting
