Summary: The product seems great although I have not used all of the features. It takes a while to get used to it. It is beautifully designed and I think it will be very helpful to me in designing. Be aware of the vendor's shipping policies, i.e., whether you can pick up your item from the UPS terminal if UPS attempts delivery when you are unavailable. You may find that you have to call the vendor, first, to make special arrangements with UPS, which happened in my case.
Excerpt: I was also amazed by the bundled five-button mouse because it’s one of the best I’ve used so far (and to think the mouse is just an added bonus!) The only criticism I can give the Wacom Intuos3 pen tablet is the vaguely understandable instruction manuals. Yes, I do understand the jargon which comes along with graphic designing and flash animation programming, but for the average Joe who is just experienced with Microsoft Paint, it just might be too much to handle.
