Summary: I have been using Pen Tablets for Graphic design for years and in my experience nothing is better than Wacom. Yes there are cheaper options out there, but if you are serious about doing anything in Illustrator or Photoshop this is the tool you need. This one is last years model, but it is $100 cheaper and the only real difference between this one the newer "pro" model is a few small aesthetic design changes (that aren't that noticeable) and that the v5 does not come with...
Summary: I've had this tablet for quite some time now and I have to say that it is possibly the best technology purchase I have ever made. It took me a couple of weeks to get used to using it. I left my mouse installed so I could ease into it and go back to the mouse when I got frustrated. That didn't last long though. This has made such an improvement in my workflow there is no way I could go back to using a mouse again.
Summary: I use this when I'm in the mood to sit down and work from my desktop. Pros: -Active touch area. -Indicators for active area. -Hot keys are convenient. -Wide list of application support. Cons: -The cabling can be cumbersome (it's rather stiff and tends to get in the way, remedied by getting the wireless adapter).
Summary: Bought this for my daughter and she absolutely loves it. Its refurbished but so far it works just fine. No problems with the software or anything. Took a while to get here but that was the whole UPS holiday backlog issue, but still got it in time. Everything was neatly packaged and my daughter is super happy. She prefers this one over her bamboo tablet. Overall a great purchase!
Summary: Turn touch off. It's not as good as the Apple track pad, and it tends to activate when you don't want it to. Otherwise, this is a great tablet, I use one professionally at work and now have the same thing at home. The pen is comfortable and the surface reacts to the pen with precision. The surface has a little more drag to it than the older Wacom tablets, but I'm used to it now.
Summary: So, a year ago, i wasn't too thrilled about the whole tablet thing... But, after only a little while of using one, i really began to enjoy the integration of using a "pen". And, now, i can't live with out one. So, i bought a second one. i use it surf the web, and certainly to design with in The Adobe Creative Suite. i use a medium Intuos5 at home with my desktop. Its perfect size for that. - i know someone else with the Large Intuos5 and they think its too big.
Summary: I've owned 2 Wacom tablets prior to this one and this newest tablet is a nice continuation of the quality and functionality that I have come to expect of Wacoms products. The touch ring is a nice addition and the buttons not having any opening where liquids could accidentally be spilt is also nice. The touch surface for multigesture is cool, and is easily able to be disabled which is nice.
Summary: I've been a professional photographer for over 25 yrs, and started using digital since the mid 90's. For many years, I've had fellow photographer looking at me in disbelief about how I don't use a tablet with my post production. I've done many things in post for many years with a mouse and or track pad, but I finally thought, what the heck, I'll give a tablet a shot. Now I get it.
