Excerpt: I recently needed to replace my Wacom mouse to go with my tablet. It was a rough go once the mouse was losing it's edge and this replacement was exactly what the dr. ordered! I literally had to just remove my other mouse and place this new one on the tablet and away I went! Super smooth and fast (the way they should be!). So far thrilled! *Note: the other mouse was the original that was 4-6 years old!
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Fast Response, Glides Smoothly, Great Features
Summary: I have started to use a pen tablet, but the current versions from Wacom are not left-handed friendly. A touch tablet is too sensitive for someone who needs to rest their hand on the tablet when they work. I searched for quite a while before deciding on this one. It's great. The driver installation was easy and it was set up for a lefty without issue. I played/worked with this tablet most of the day. The customer service experience with Wacom is not that great.
Summary: I just think these are hard to get used to. I didn't want to spend the money on a cintiq, (the monitor and tablet in one) so I got this, and my art wasn't as good. I think you have to be dedicated to make this product work.
Summary: Love my new Intuos 4. I've used the 3 extensively and absolutely enjoyed it to the max. This one had improvements in all the right directions. Even though I am used to keyboard shortcuts (the 2-key kind) so I need to keep it handy, it is nice to have the buttons there for some functions. As an illustrator, painter & designer (both traditionally and digitally), I find this to be an essential tool.

Summary: The Intuos4 is a classic, and there's very little wrong with it that others haven't commented on already. I chose to go with the 4 because the features offered in the 5 weren't that important to me. Best bought with a padded carrying case, because it doesn't come with anything but a small disposable wrapper for shipping.
Summary: It takes work to learn to draw on a tablet, even to trace, but it's worth the trouble. Before computers I could never "ink" a drawing worth spit, but thanks to the Intuos, I can now "'ink" my art like a pro.
