      A must-have for digital designers, but a few quirks in current model.

      This is the only tablet I recommend to my students and I've never had one fail in 25 yrs of use. PROS Great sensitivity, resolution, response and feel CONS This is the only tablet I recommend to my students and I've never had one fail in 25 yrs of use. PROS Great sensitivity, resolution, response and feel CONS More bulky than predecessor; USB 3 wireless interference problems (I've included a workaround to this) A few complaints with the current model: TABLET SIZE The Intuos line has been getting bigger with every version, though the work space is the same (Intuos3 - 13.6” Intuos4 - 14.5” ; IntuosPro (5) - 15”). It gets more and more difficult to fit it on a desk beside a keyboard and more awkward to use as well. If you’re a pro who uses a keyboard and the tablet, you’re going to have more ergonomic issues with the new version than the old. USB 3 WIRELESS INTERFERENCE PROBLEMS (and a workaround) This problem, isn't completely Wacom's fault. USB 3 is not really ready for prime time: it has serious wireless interference issues that can plague your wireless devices. The Wacom wireless receiver plugs into your USB port. So, if your computer uses USB 3, it may cause your tablet to persistently drop off the network, making it impossible to work. USB 3/WIRELESS WORKAROUND I plug a USB 2 hub into my Mac’s USB 3 port, and place the hub on the other side of my desk. When the Wacom wireless dongle is plugged into the USB 2 hub, the tablet works perfectly via wireless. You can also use a USB extension cable to get the dongle away from the offending USB 3 interference (a better solution for travellers). All in all, still the best tablet on the market.

      Not for Apple computers anymore!!!

      I spent six hours banging my head against the proverbial wall trying to make this work as intended, IT WILL NOT NOR EVER WILL. From Yosemite and up problems abo I spent six hours banging my head against the proverbial wall trying to make this work as intended, IT WILL NOT NOR EVER WILL. From Yosemite and up problems abound with the driver, current driver at that. In photoshop sure it works ok, that is if you like not being able to undo moves and have lag times galore, no zooming, and it renders your keyboard and track pad inoperable while in operation. None of the set keys for functions will do what they are set for unless freezing is all they are for- then they work every single time flawlessly. It goes back tomorrow and it's too bad, I really could have utilized it. Caveat emptor. Wacom blames Apple, Apple blames Adobe, Adobe blames Wacom. YOU will be sorry if you buy one and use Photoshop, because you can't! Spare yourself the migrane and runaround like I have and run like the wind. Never again!
