Worked great for about a year but then the USB connection broke completely. (Work around).

LotusEater, Amazon

  • Summary: Others have mentioned the USB issue in their reviews some even discuss a repair. Ours was a newer model, which seemed to break in a different fashion. I thought I'd tell about our work around to the USB connection failing. 2 other purchases made the tablet work again in wireless mode.

THIS IS HUGE

Kaitlyn, Amazon
31 December 2013
  • Summary: Alright so I ordered a large Intuos 5 tablet since my White Wacom Bamboo Fun was a large and it fit in my lap perfectly for when I would draw. I was astounded when I opened the package and found such a massive device, one that would need an entire desk and not just my lap. I can't fit it onto my lap at all unless I turn my body to the right with my head still facing the screen, a position that may cause cramps.

Poor solder job (usb issue)

Brendon, Amazon
13 August 2013
  • Summary: im REALLY mad right now, but im not very bias, so ill still give it 3 stars, but seriously? i havent been drawing much lately because every time i want to i plug in my tablet aaaaaand, no lights... so i opened it up and turns out the soldering was absolute ****, unpluging and pluging in the usb cable into the tablet puts too much strain on the solder points, they eventually break and you dont know!

Pen wear is its Achilles heel

Mike Tackett "Zookman", Amazon
14 June 2013
  • 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.

Not the Wacom that I used to know

Tutash, Amazon
26 March 2013
  • Summary: I've used Wacom tablets for a loooooooong time. Not as long as others, but longer than most; since ArtPad. I still have my old ArtPad. It uses serial bus and external power... and the whole drawing surface is active. Since when did this change? My new Intuos5 has a much smaller "active area" than the actual tablet area. Even my Intuos2 had none of this strangeness. I bought the Intuos5 Medium, which, if I'd known about this "active area" stuff, I'd have reconsidered.

Beautiful tablet but such a PAIN to get the drivers to work!!!

Brian S, Amazon
30 January 2013
  • Summary: The tablet looks great but the drivers completely suck... The ones on the disk don't work, the new version on the wacom site doesn't work, and it takes hours to figure out how to get it to work... I found this link [...] and was finally able to get this thing to work properly! You have to download another driver first then download the correct one from the site but after all that it finally started working.

Need more info

  • Summary: While my husband is quite versed with Graphics software, he has yet to have the time to sit down and be online long enough to get this going. An instruction manual would be great...

not for me

gotmoretoys, Amazon
24 October 2012
  • 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.

Back up to three stars for Windows 8 driver

W. Nicholls, Amazon
10 June 2012
  • Summary: After many months Wacom finally has drivers that work reasonably well. However, I maintain my disappointment with the hardware. My first disappointment is that Wacom includes the standard fat stylus with the silicone rubber sleeve. Aside from feeling like you're drawing with a thick kindergarten pencil, the rubber grips on these things are a hassle. They catch dirt and they get soft, sticky, and slick over time.

Hopefully a driver update will do

albert, Amazon
15 March 2012
  • 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).
