Showing 1-10 of 173
Sorry for the lack of detail, but a positive purchase.
12 December 2014
Summary: Purchased for my wife. She loves it. Refuses to put it down. I know very little about the functionality of the item, personally. But it has lots of buttons and such that allow her to navigate Photoshop and other Adobe software suites. She says it saves her time. It makes her happy. Which, of course, makes me happy.
Summary: It arrived in perfect condition and has been working ever since. The power supply issue I've seen some users complain about hasn't been a problem for me so far. The cord in question does have an unsatisfactory connection in general, but I have not had it disconnect a single time whilst using this product. It's strangely secure for being so wiggly. Then again, I don't go screwing around with it; I just draw.
The touch features are kind of useful now that I have stopped using a mouse

Summary: This tablet does work really well. The touch features are kind of useful now that I have stopped using a mouse. The only complaint I have isn't with the quality of the product, it is that I bought one size too big. I would have been fine with the medium size tablet as desk space for this one can be tricky.
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've been using Wacom tablets for years. I finally decided to treat my self to a really nice one. I'm so disappointed. The surface of the tablet is far too delicate. In less than 3 months it has worn down from it's "Paper like" surface to a glassy smooth in the center of the pad, This produces an inconsistent surface texture that is difficult to work with. I warranty replaced it once but the new one did the same thing.
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
28 July 2014
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.
