Summary: This Intuos 5 tablet small is perfect for my needs. Even though it's the small model it's big enough for your desk space. Easy to set up and came with free downloadable software. Price was great too. Wacom has a reputation for being a quality company. The seller shipped it right away and was very informative on the shipping details! Very pleased with this price and purchase.
Excerpt: The first tablet I got died a peaceful death about 5 minutes after I plugged it in. After a few messages back and forth, Adorama decided to send me another one. Looks new, does the job perfectly, great buy. It is reassuring to know that Adorama has a no questions asked policy when you have problems and need to return a defective product.
Summary: I've been using Wacom tablets for years. I finally decided to treat my self to a really nice one. I'm so disappointed. The surface of the tablet is far too delicate. In less than 3 months it has worn down from it's "Paper like" surface to a glassy smooth in the center of the pad, This produces an inconsistent surface texture that is difficult to work with. I warranty replaced it once but the new one did the same thing.
Excerpt: This is my first tablet and I expected there will be a learning curve and at least a week to get comfortable with it. Installing drivers was a bit tricky but once I figured it out, I was able to start comfirtably using it right away.
For my needs, I love it ... may not be for everybody

Summary: All I do with the tablet is photo editing, but I do have a dual 23" monitor setup. I was worried about the small was going to be too small and delayed my purchase for several weeks (should I buy a Med or a Small.?.?.?.). Turns out, I couldn't be happier. I've mapped the tablet to my primary monitor, so I cover more of the tablet than when I had it mapped to both.
Excerpt: Refurbished item indistinguishable from new! Tablet is primarily used for Photoshop retouching. I was concerned that the small version would not provide enough working room, but it is fine. The bundled software was kind of a cool bonus, letting me try my hand manga and other illustrations.
Excerpt: Don't get me wrong with a low rating, it's a great product--just thought a manufacturer's refurbish would have caught the problem with DOA connection-port before rehoming it.But then with electronics, guess it can be tricky--that's why buying from place like Adorama, who backs up their sales, is a good choice.
