Pen wear is its Achilles heel

Summary: I got the Intuos5 to replace my old Intuos2 (mainly because my pen fell apart and I couldn't replace it). The nimble, responsive functionality is as I expected from Wacom, but -- like others have voiced before me -- I was disappointed in the pen nibs because they wear down *very* rapidly. In fact, quite noticeably after only 1 or 2 days of regular usage.
Summary: Even the finest tablet doesn't make up for a lack of artistic talent. At least not yet. The available downloadable software isn't novice friendly and it was difficult to find and enable the advanced features in the software that use the advanced features in the stylus and pad. For example, trying to select a 'brush' in software that employs the Wacom stylus tilt and pressure abilities was way beyond me.
Summary: As some people here have stated, the problem when using the tablet right out of the package is that some functions feel with some lag or not too responsive. I use windows 7 and an i7 intel core processor, so my pc is not the problem. Aside from that, I'm still trying to get used to the buttons and the scroll/zoom/rotate wheel. They feel hard to press and the wheel is very tricky to get used to (your fingers need to be super dry).
