Excerpt: I bought this to upgrade from a Wacom Bamboo Capture. The Bamboo is quite good but this tablet us awesome. Buttery touch commands and the pen gives you great control. The increase in sensitivity levels gives much better finite control in my photo retouching. I am far from being an artist but can see where it would give great control for painting. How many of us can afford or justify a $ cintique?
Excerpt: This thing is incredible, right away it has made Photoshop a thousand times easier! The pen and brush tools are no longer a tedious chore, in fact they are becoming my most favorite tools now. Installation was quick and trouble free on my mac mini; learning to use the pen is an over statement for the most part.
Excerpt: I purchased a Wacom Bamboo4 years ago and just found it difficult to use. A few years later I found myself doing a lot of editing in Photoshop and the mouse just wasn't cutting the mustard. There is no finesse with a mouse. I picked up the Bamboo and realized the tablet is the future for serious editing. I forced myself to use it for a week and it clicked. Next step, get the pro version. I love the Intuos Pro.
Excerpt: At first, everything felt a bit foreign but the more you use it the more it becomes second nature. So with that said I am really starting to see the huge benefit to using this tablet in Photoshop. The pen technology is simply amazing.
Excerpt: A great high-quality product once you get it installed. It did not auto-install the driver in Win 7 when the USB connector was plugged in as described in the quick menu. I had to manually install the driver using the provided disk. After that minor annoyance, I found it to be a super tool, very programmable/customizable for command menus which greatly reduces the need for keyboard inputs. It is also easily convertible to left-hand use.
Pros: Build quality, Left Hand Convertible, Powerful, Programmable Menus
Excerpt: I bought this tablet so that I could be more accurate using Photoshop. The small size was the right one for me to buy, it's really not that small. There is definitely a learning curve but so far I am sticking with it. I watched a few tutorials and had no problems setting the product up. The buttons on the pen and tablet are customizable giving you lots of shortcuts to items that you use often.
