Summary: I mean, where do I start? It came in its original packaging, nice. No scratches, dings or cracks unlike another refurbished item I returned back because of those reasons. I tested it out and so far so good. It works like a charm. Top notch!
Summary: Having previously owned some of the really old models of the wacom tech pre-bamboo era I am stunned at how far the technology has come. I could not be happier with this purchase. It is pretty easy to use and while some adjustment is required it was not nearly as much as I had expected. Very happy with my decision to get the large model as the drawable surface area is roughly the size of a sheet of paper.
Summary: I don't know how i lived and worked with a smaller tablet for so long. Graduating from 8x6 (using gaff tape to mask it off to 16x9, because that is how i roll), this ginormous surface makes a WORLD of difference-- i can now use my gross motor skills to move my arm while i draw, not just the micro-movements of the wrist and hand that you have to use with smaller pads.
Summary: I bought my first Wacom tablet back when they made the Graphire and I hated it. My how times have changed. This tablet is incredibly responsive and it has a nice set of features. It works well with Linux (specifically Ubuntu) and Windows as well. The variety of nibs included is a real plus.
... Tablet and so far this tablet has been working beautifully for me

Summary: I just recently got the Intuos5 Lage Tablet and so far this tablet has been working beautifully for me. I was using my old tablet for 8 years, which was also a wacom, so this is a big step up for me. It's easy to navigate and customize all the controls, and despite its size it is not that heavy. This is great to maintain the nice arm movement for drawing. With my old tablet, which was much smaller, I was drawing with my wrist more than my arm which was not good.
Summary: Hello, This is the second tablet I've ever owned (my first being a small bamboo I purchased many years ago). I have to say, this thing is HUGE (the large size). If you're lacking deskspace, skip this and go for the medium-sized one. Now, pen pressure sensitivity is fantastic, and it integrates really well with Photoshop CS6 (have not tried with other graphic programs). Installation is super easy and intuitive, and the pen & tablet was very easy to learn.
Summary: I am in love with this new tablet after an upgrade from my well used Wacom Bamboo tablet. It was bigger then I expected, the drawing area is HUGE! I have already put hours of use on it in a short time and the lines I am making now are crisper and more responsive then the bamboo. I should have upgraded to this tablet a long time ago. It said the package was going to be delivered on Friday and I got it 3 days earlier then that which was quite a nice surprise.
Summary: I bought this as an upgrade to an older Wacom Bamboo tablet, and I LOVE it! The tracking and pressure sensitivity is the best I've experienced on any tablet. My only complaint is the drivers that Wacom provides seem to be a little half baked. The touch capabilities only work occasionally, and not every program plays well with Wacom—Sketchbook Pro was one that I had some trouble with.
