Stick to cable

Summary: Bluetooth hangs quite a lot I end up using the USB cable, which kind of defies the purpose. I contacted customer support, they gave me a very lame excuse that Bluetooth technology is not perfect, and they have my case documented several times.
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: I used to have a Wacom Intuos 2 that I bought in late 90's. It was made in Japan and lasted for 12-13 years till it died in 2011. I bought the Wacom Intuos 4 on May 2011 to replace my old tablet mentioned above.
Summary: When the tablet works, it works really good. The problem is that a lot of the time it doesn't work. The light that says it is on, comes on but some of the other lights will not come on. It won't respond to the mouse or tablet pen. I have had to reinstall two times and it still is not working right.
Summary: I've been using these tablets since they first came out and I love them, I rarely ever use a mouse anymore. Having sustained a wrist injury from too much computer use, I have to be careful. A pen puts my wrist in a natural position, less strain, than a mouse.
Wireless Bluetooth mode has a noticeable lag when switching applications

Summary: In short, if you are using the Intuos4 wireless medium in bluetooth mode with customized express keys there is a .5-3 sec delay/lag when you are switching between applications. This is because there is not enough bandwidth to transfer the OLED data/shortcuts fast enough to the tablet.
Summary: I use the tablet for illustrations and digital painting. It can be very buggy with my MacBook Pro, even when connected through a USB port. Sometimes it would not recognize my tablet or settings when I plug it in and would go into mouse scroll mode instead of pen mode.
Excerpt: This is what happens when a quality manufacturer of an uncontested product line of a high-specialty item gets greedy on price for add-ons. It's doubtful that a third party will present competitive offerings for this accessory kit.
