Summary: So I do enjoy the sensitivity and etc of the intuos4 I myself have the XL one. but after a while within almost 2 years both plug inserts have fallen off the motherboard. Apparently i'm not the only one this happened to so i'm pretty disappointed. If you are getting any of the 4 versions be ready to have to replace them in 2 years. If you have the money for that go all for it.
Summary: I wish I had read about the rough surface on the intuos4 before I purchased it!!! I really hate the rough surface and don't know how I will get used to it. I would have ordered another intuos3 had I been able to test the surface first! I have been using wacom tablets since the mid 90s and they have been an invaluable tool. But this is the first one that has ever had a rough surface.
Summary: I received this as a gift, thank goodness. I would regret my purchase otherwise. The main problem with the tablet is it shoddy construction. The Pen works alright, but the included mouse is a study in frustration. When I single-click the left mouse button, the mouse double-clicks quite often. Although it might work most of the day with an unintended double-click several times an hour, most often it double-clicks several times a minute.
Summary: I got the so-called wireless tablet in August and it never worked correctly- the wireless that is. For two weeks, I tried everything that support threw at me, outside of upgrading my OS (XP Pro sp2), which is where I drew the line. I shouldn't have to do that kind of runaround! It's usually the blame game when it comes to support issues isn't it? The tablet performed fine- only with the usb WIRE hooked up.
Summary: I'm getting lag in all applications (including just the finder). If I make custom settings for different apps, the curser freezes for about 2-3 seconds every time I switch applications (like if I click outside of the Illustrator window to open a file or something). It does work fine if you plug it in, but then why pay $50 for wireless if its useless? I can see why they didn't make all there sizes available in wireless. They must know it sucks.
Summary: This is my first attempt at a pen tablet(intuos4 small). I chose intuos4 over Bamboo pen&touch mainly for the better pen(better grip and higher sensitivity). However, in just 9 days after I had started using it, I found my pen defective. It writes when it is NOT contacting the tablet surface. Also, at about the same time, the pen tip had begun to feel looser. (It wasn't the quality you expect from "a $200 pen" anymore.
You may have loved this tablet as I did, until your USB ports break!

Summary: Review Amended as of 2/25/10 I decided to amend this review because there's a serious defect with any size of these Intuos tablets with the exception of the Intuos 4 XL. That is the USB ports. While people complain about the nib wear, it's just a purchase for new nibs or waiting till they put out a surface sheet. However, this is a big issue on Europe's forums for Wacom.
Summary: For a Japanese company, WACOM have been refreshingly honest about their intention to milk all the secondary sales out of you for their top of the line product. The "Enhanced Grip" of the working surface seems to have been specifically designed to erode the surface of the nibs as fast as possible. I have spent less than an hour working with mine and have already noticed nib wear. I find this frankly disgusting, especially considering the reputation WACOM have cultivated.
Summary: Cette souris fonctionne très bien, jusqu’au jour où elle ne marche plus...c'est la touche pour le retour en arrière qui ne répond plus. Je l'ai achetée pour ma tablette Wacom, car l'ensemble est bien pratique et agréable à utiliser avec cette souris sans fil, je vais attendre qu' elle tombe en panne complètement pour la changer, il n' y a pas d' équivalent, je pense, sur le marché qui fonctionnerait avec ma tablette, je jongle régulièrement entre la souris et le stylet...
