Summary: The exact replacement of my original grip pen that I got with the Intuos 4. My original broke when I absentmindedly pulled it apart thinking it was a regular pen to write with.... It's an expensive mistake but I was glad to get it without paying shipping and it arrived REALLY quickly.
Summary: I'm not sure how...but this one is better than the original one my tablet came with fresh out of the box. It just writes so smoothly! I was so excited when I drew with it the first time that I had to have my friends and colleagues play with it too, even if they couldn't see my laptop screen, for they were on the opposite side of the table.
Summary: Arrived on time. Works great with my tablet. Didn't know my boyfriend was buying me one as a surprise until I ruined the surprise and said I had bought one. Now I have two in case one breaks again!
Summary: This is an excellent pen and tablet, I have the medium intuose4 table and pen - very accurate and responsive. Unfortunately the quality and durability of the pen is hit and miss; today my pen fell apart, no kidding I picked it up and the pieces separated. I have had it for two years, probably dropped it a few times, so not under warranty. I will have to buy a new pen for $50-$105.
