Not Such A Good Replacement

Christopher H., Newegg
1 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought this to replace my original intuos3 pen that got lost on a trip. I thought wow, I can save like $20 on this, sounds like a great deal! Not so much. Let me say that once I fixed it, the pen worked the way it should, but the fact that I had to fix something that was brand new is a big problem. When I got the pen the clicker was sticky and wouldn't register without really having to press down on the thing super hard.
  • Pros: It works and does what its supposed to do, once you fix it.
  • Cons: Poorly manufactured and feels cheap.

Just so so

Mariane Kulick, Amazon

  • Summary: I thought it would be like my original stylus. The old one is longer and has a rubber grip. I transferred the grip to this new one but the size is really not as good. I didn't realize there was a difference when I ordered it and I would suggest if there is a longer, better one the buyers get that one. I can make do with this one but I don't like it as much as the old one.

Does the job

esaeo, B&H Photo
21 August 2013
  • Excerpt: The only reason I gave this less than 4 stars is 1) I rarely give 5 as that implies perfection, and 2) I accidentally ordered the wrong stylus and could not return it because I was in immediate need of it. It works just as well as other Wacom styli, so with that I give it good marks. But what I had before and was thinking I purchased, was weightier and with a grip. This stylus is too light for my taste and without a grip is too thin.
  • Pros: Attractive Styling, Compact Design, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use
  • Cons: No Grip Too Thin, Too Lightweight

Where's the software

  • Summary: The product works great. However, there was no imaging software included (Adobe PhotoElements...etc). I could have missed that disclaimer though prior to ordering.

Excellent Tablet for the amateur ! Mouse is Junk ****UPDATED Feb 1-2011****

G. M. R. JOSE "GRAZ", Amazon
9 January 2009
  • Summary: I bought the Intuos 3 4X6, and at the beginning I had my doubts about the size. I'm more than happy with it, since I use it only for retouching photos, and it works fine for me. I have more control over the functions in my photo editing software. The pressure levels of the pen is a great feature for dodging and burning, cloning undesired junk is much easier.

Not my best Wacom experience

AK, Amazon
19 November 2008
  • Summary: I bought this with the intention of using the mouse daily and the pen with less frequency, and that's held true so far. I use it with my laptop at home, and I have an older Wacom tablet for my PC at work. Mouse: If I had tried out the mouse first, I would have passed on it. Its paint coating started to chip off the sides after about a month of use, but more importantly, I find it ergonomically awkward.

Meh...

Michael M., Newegg
18 April 2008
  • Summary: The fact that it doesn't have the double-switch doesn't bother me too much as I don't really use that in applications. I just haven't found as many uses for it as I'd hoped for. True, you can simultaneously draw or write with it on paper and the screen...but the whole point of the tablet is to skip the paper step. Now, if you're inking a pencil drawing, why not just scan it in? Maybe I'm missing something, but I'm just not blown away by it.
  • Pros: Good feel
  • Cons: Not very versatile

Review

Rudean Vaughn "Ruth", Amazon
30 October 2007
  • Summary: I bought this tablet to use with Photoshop but found the pen too sensitive for my heavy hand. You don't need to actually touch the pad with the pen, you can just hover over a file and then tap it to open. This seems ideal for some but for me I found stresful for holding the pen since I seem to be constantly opening files by mistake. Then I began to use the mouse with the pad but the pad is so small I had trouble coordinating my movements to my 22" screen.
