Didn't work like a normal mouse

Excerpt: I've tried to use my Intuos 5 tablet and pen to do "normal" PC activities like file management, copying and pasting text etc since users of the Wacom all kind of said you have to "put your mouse away" and just use the tablet to get totally familiar with it.
Cons: Inaccurate Tracking, Not A Fully Ms Mouse Repl
Summary: I was pretty bummed to find out that it didn't work after opening the box. Nothing looked out of place so I don't think it was previously used or tampered with. I might have just been that lucky guy that got a one-in-a-whatever chance of receiving a defective product.
Summary: I'm a designer and digital painter. I use photoshop and Wacom Tablets for more than twenty years, and use my tablet up to 16 hours a day. I'm a super user and perfectly know how to install and uninstall the tablet properly.
Summary: I'm a heavy tablet user: professional CG artist who uses the tablet instead of a mouse. I decided to break down and upgrade my Intuos 3 to an Intuos 4. In hindsight, this was a mistake and a waste of time. 1) Surface is too rough and inconsistently so.
Summary: Warning: READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLING WACOM GIFT SOFTWARE I recently purchased from Amazon the WACOM Intuos4 (Small) Pen Tablet. The installation procedure requires that you select three "free" software items so I chose: 1. Nik Color Efex Pro 3 WE6 2. Wacom Brushes 3 3.
Summary: I cannot recommend this product to anyone as the nib issue is too great to ignore. They have designed a great, feature loaded product which is left completely useless because of the speed at which nibs wear down, leaving the user in a committed cycle of constantly buying nib replacements and...
Summary: You can read about many pros here, I'll write some very disappointing facts about Wacom customer care. 1. Nibs flattering very quickly. Wacom says in it forum: "Put paper sheet on your tablet to reduce flattering".
Summary: I bought this to use over bluetooth, as I'm sure everyone else did, so it came as something of a shock then to find that when using bluetooth, cursor tracking is very juddery, spluttery, and generally inaccurate.
Summary: After time these mice develop a fault which results in a double-clicking action when the mouse is clicked once. I'm now on my eighth mouse. Usually they last a few months but each one has developed the same fault. Unfortunately, there is no way to take the item apart to clean it.
