skip this tablet

Summary: Intuos 4 is a good line. But this size and price really doesn't give much advantages to most peeps. In fact, I would say when using the full tablet space, it's usually a disadvantage in speed and efficiency. Only good if you have wrist probs/concerns and want to mix it up.
Pros: ergonomic, so someone w/ carpal tunnel can do big arm movements, not just wrist movements. Mix up the movements.
Cons: price blows. efficiency, speed, is terrible. Ergonomics is almost the only plus. I really can't think of a single plus besides ergonomics for those starting to have wrist problems. If you don't, or if you don't think you're close to that issue, pretty much 80 to 90% of most users should skip.
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.
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!
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).
The data cable attachment at the tablet has been finicky ...

Summary: The data cable attachment at the tablet has been finicky since the day I got the device but when it's working it performs as expected. 2 stars for the hardware defect with the cable which seems to be a common theme among posts on the wacom forums.
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.
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.
Summary: I bought this even though I read user reviews stating the problems with Bluetooth and the fact the nibs wear out quickly. In the past I have found many of peoples complaints on various items overblown so I bought it anyway. Unfortunately this time the negative claims were pretty accurate.
Summary: Nachdem mein Grip Pen zum Cintiq plötzlich ohne sichtbaren Grund auseinander fiel, riet man mir bei Wacom zum Art Pen, da dieser "rotationssensitiv" sei - und der alte Grip Pen ohnehin nicht auf Lager sei und auch kein neues Versanddatum genannt werden könnte...
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...
