So worth the upgrade cost
2 weeks ago
Summary: I’m mostly just a hobbyist when it comes to tablet use, so I debated a long time on upgrading my old Bamboo tablet (which worked just fine). I waited and waited for the USB cable to stop working so I’d have an excuse, but it just kept working. So I splurged for the holidays and treated myself to a Wacom Pro. It’s a huge upgrade. The sensitivity is very noticeable, as is the feel. I don’t know that it makes a profound impact on my work, but it’s more enjoyable to use.
Summary: Love the new tablet. I've been using a Wacom tablet for years. Last was the Intuos 3. I'm a graphic designer so love being able to draw and paint with the pen. I'll never go back to using a mouse as there is just no comparison between mouse and pen/tablet. It may take a little while to get used to it if one has never used a tablet, but once hooked, hooked for life. Great product.
Summary: This replaced my older Graphite as they stopped supporting that style. Wow, what a change! Easier to use, weighted pen head and very smooth moving across the touch area. A lot of new items that promise easier use once I get to try them all.
Summary: It will take some time to get used to it.. But so far it has been pretty nice.. it doesn't work wirelessly with my Macbook Air (Mid - 2012).. but works fine with my Macbook Pro 2009.. Dunno if it is because Air has USB3 ports or something else.
Summary: Recently I purchased this tablet, and I'm glad I did. It works wonderfully! Since I don't use Windows or a Mac finding tablets that work with my computer can be a little tricky using Linux, but with a little compiling, it's works just as it should. Having the option of it being able to go wireless is a nice change and there are no problems with the cord.
Summary: This latest generation WACOM tablet is incredibly smooth to use! I've used Intuos tablets since their early days, and other brands before then (anyone remember "Kurta"?). This almost feels futuristic! The controls are very responsive and well-placed. This also comes with the wireless module (battery life about 6h with one charge), which is particularly good when my daughter uses it (the previous older Intuos bit the dust after the cable got rolled/twisted in her use).
Summary: I've worked on various Wacom tablets since the early 90's. This was a birthday present from my wife. I had been using a Bamboo for several years and was very happy with it. About 5 months ago, I started working in Painter 12. The more I got into the program, I realized the Bamboo would only take me so far. The difference in sensitivity with the Intuos, is night & day.
Summary: this was expensive but has saved me from having cramps in my hand from photo editing. I was having trouble due to so much "mouse time". The tablet did take a couple of days to get used to but now I couldn't imagine editing an album without it. Holding back from 5 stars because--- like others have said --- the usb cord/power does move and I'm not sure it will stand the test of time. The connection works but is loose and I am trying to be careful not to jar it.
