This tablet is simply amazing. The new button set up and feel is a great change. While drawing you really get a paper texture feel. If you have used an Intuos4, you might not notice much of a pressure and response difference but the new buttons and rubber is a big change. I think its a lot more practical and more efficient while in use. I constantly found myself feeling like I needed to clean my Intuos4 from smudging it.
Now, if you are considering Medium vs Large....
I use to have an Intuos4 Lrg and loved it. I owned the tabled for 2 years and used for graphic design, illustrations, and some digital painting. The strokes always felt very natural and good ration of tabled to screen. I hardly ever used the precision mode button because my table to screen ratio was very good.
Now, I switched to the new Intuos5 medium and loved the new look and feel, but did not like the screen to tabled ratio. Just navigating through photoshop from one end of the screen to the other was very awkward. I messed around with the mapping settings and I still couldn't get something that I liked. Now, I have been using a Large tablet for the past 2 years and it might take some time to adjust. But, since I rely so much on my tablet for what I do as a career, to me it is worth spending a little more and getting what I am already confortable with.
Professionally speaking, the tablet to monitor ratio is a big deal to me. If you are using the tablet with just a 15 or 17 monitor/ laptop, the Medium tablet ratio is probably okay. If you are primarily using the tablet for photo touch up and some moderate design, the Medium size will suit your needs. But, if you have some drawing background (fine arts), you will probably find the Large tablet to suit your needs. The biggest reason is the way you probably do your strokes, you use your arm & shoulder instead of your wrist. Wrist movement would be appropriate (common) for photo touchups, and some illustrations, but for bigger custom made designs you would want the Large tablet. The medium size tablet is like drawing on half a sheet of paper at a time and the Large tablet is like drawing on a whole piece of paper (8.5x11).
One big thing I noticed was the active area difference between the two tablets. The active area is only within the white cross hairs (or "L" figures) on the tablet. You have an extra .5" of blank space around the active area and it doesn't really seem to do anything (at least from what I could tell). This makes your active area a lot smaller than what it looks. This was a big deal breaker for me and the reason for why I am going back to using the Large size tablet.
When it comes down to performance, both tablets have equal sensitivity and touch performance, there is no question in that. The biggest thing is consider the monitor real estate you will be using and the tablet to monitor ratio. Remember that a tablet is a tablet for computer graphic work that requires a pen/ pencil style, not Navigation and or web browsing. The touch is a nice plus and I believe its just Wacoms way of gearing to the new Navigation style that computers are headed to.
I will be returning the Medium and getting a Large. I will post an update once I get it
I’m going to separate the review of the product into these categories: The tablet and pen, express keys & touch ring, the program for the tablet, and touch.
I’ve also included some of the useful settings and peripherals I’ve come across in my time using the tablet.
TL;DR: I love the performance of this tablet and other Wacom products but the tablet essentially broke after two years of use for $500 USD, I expect more for my money and the continued frustration of having to deal with Wacom for faults of their own desperately make me want to exit their ecosystem.
TABLET & PEN: The Tablet and pen feel great. Honestly, top-of-the-line and I don’t have anything to add here that hasn’t been said already in terms of the technical prowess of the tablet. I’ve purchased the professional pen kit that has the rubber nibs included and I highly recommend using them. The rubber nibs add a great feel to the pen, offering a more natural resistance 'feel' to the drag of a stroke.
EXPRESS KEYS & TOUCH RING: I don’t usually use these, however there was a time where I didn’t have easy access to a keyboard, as I was using a laptop, and the express keys, once configured, can help out your workflow quite a bit.
PROGRAM: I love the customizability of Wacom’s built-in program. You can adjust and customize virtually everything about the tablet and pen. You can map custom keystrokes and modifiers to the pen and express keys and you can even make program specific changes. Since I’m a keyboard user, my left hand is usually resting on the tablet. This triggers the express keys often and there was thankfully an option to set express keys on the right, so I’ve never run into this problem again. Another thing I customize is setting the pen thumb triggers to zoom in and out.
*HUGE TIP TO REMEMBER* There are more people than I would’ve liked to admit that did not know about this setting. Under the mapping tab for the pen of the Wacom Tablet Properties program, whatever you set it to, always make sure to check the “Force Proportions” checkbox. This will ensure that your strokes will be 1:1 on the screen to your tablet. If you have trouble visualizing what this means, if you don’t have it checked, when you draw a perfect circle or square on your tablet without this setting, it will appear as an oval or rectangle instead.
TOUCH: It sucks. I never liked using it, never performed as it should have, and have never met any other user (artist, student, teacher, or anyone I’ve ever met that uses this tablet) that have used the touch controls available on the tablet. If I’m plugging my tablet into a computer that’s not mine, I always turn off the touch setting first thing.
Another thing to note is that if portability isn’t a concern for you and you have ample desk space, the larger the tablet is, the better. If you’re mainly using your wrist to make strokes, versus a fuller arm movement, this puts strain on your wrist and a larger drawing size will help mitigate that risk. If this is your bread and butter to providing yourself, protect your wrist and invest in a larger size, no matter what drawing tablet you decide to purchase.
The performance of Wacom's products are the best in the industry and that is why I've continued to use their products. Unfortunately, their quality and customer service leave a lot to be desired. I've wanted a spare power/usb cable for my 13HD and their store has not restocked it ever since I've purchased it. I've spoken to a customer representative and they were unable to give me a date of a restock or if they were actually planning on a restock, which is inexcusable. If mine had stopped working than I would be completely out of luck since I'm no longer under warranty.
My Intuos5 usb port has broken loose and at that time I had only owned the tablet a little over two years (how convenient it would break after the two-year warranty) and it has been one of the most frustrating issues I’ve ever had to deal with in a computer peripheral. It first started acting out so I had to have the usb cord angled in very specific ways and the tablet eventually crapped out altogether. I bought the wireless accessory kit as a last ditch effort to save my $500 dollar investment, but without a working usb port, there was no way to charge the battery. This was my fault as I didn’t clearly read how the kit functioned. I then had to go on a long extensive journey through google and the deep pits of websites like deviantart to find an alternative solution to charging the battery. I could’ve sent the tablet in to get it fixed for several hundred dollars but that sounded like complete nonsense, why pay so much extra for a defect of their fault? All these shenanigans because Wacom decided to skimp out and cut corners in the production of their tablet. My Intous3 still works.
Wacom has released a new model of this product that has apparently fixed the usb port, but what about all their past customers that have purchased the older model?
Because of the hold Wacom has on the market, their products can still tout a premium price tag but more and more companies are cropping up to offer competition. This is good, but the competition still hasn’t reached a point to rival the performance. I sincerely hope someone can dethrone Wacom soon because I’m getting tired of having to deal with them.
-really precise and sensitive!
-thin, easy to fit in a laptop bag without taking much space!
-the buttons could be better, it takes a bit effort to press, I mean it doesn't take that much of an effort but could be very very annoying!
-I agree about everything they said about burning the nibs! however if you set the sensitivity to the max the single nib will last months or weeks of working a lot with it! COULD be worse if you're one of the people who are comfortable with less pressure sesitivity!
few things to notice:
-the touch isn't %100 responsive, but isn't useless either! I tried the device on both operating systems (Windows, OSX) the touch is a lot more responsive and work more fluently in the OSX than windows! for instance I can move the canvas in sketchbook pro 2011 with ease like piece of cake, while in windows couldn't do anything at all! AT ALL!!!! so is the touch feature worthy? if you have a mac then yes it absolutly does worth it! otherwise go for the intuos4 since they're on sale now and not much of an improvement on the pen performance between both models unless you want the wireless feature in the small and large size.
-strong smell of plastic, this may concern some people here.
This new Medium Intuous tablet is great and is just the right size for my needs. The pressure sensitivity is great, comes with a variety of useful replacement pen nibs and I like the programmable side buttons for the most part. It is small, light and thin enough to put in my lap while working - getting the wireless package is a definite recommendation.
If I do have a couple of complaints, they have to do with the surface being easily scuffed by your harder pen nibs. So definitely get a protective cover for it. I got the 10 dollar Porus one offered here on Amazon and it works well. My other complaint is the wireless unit - which can lose the signal for a few seconds every once in a couple of hours of use. It is just a minor thing as it does re-establish the signal quickly, but can be disruptive when you are in the creative flow with your tablet.
Other than the two complaints above, I actually really like it and glad I got this much smaller, lighter and more sensitive version for my work and play.
I've had this tablet for a little over 3 years now. It's obviously out of warranty. That said, I've hardly used it. It's been in use a total of maybe 10-15 hours in 3 years. It's mostly been sitting on my desk surface, because I've just been using it for removing backgrounds from photos now and then aside from painting an hour or so a couple of times.
Today I had an urgent work deadline. I needed to use the tablet to design some book covers, and it won't respond. The USB port seems wiggly, and when I plug it into my computer, it doesn't recognize it. It says no tablet is detected in the Wacom utility.
I followed all the steps their support said to follow, and nothing works. The tablet isn't recognized, and the lights do not come on.
I paid $339 for this tablet to use it around 10 hours. $33.90 per hour. I could have just hired another designer to do the work for me for that.
I can't even buy one anywhere locally, because all the stores that used to carry Wacom tablets haven't had any in stock for over a year. I am SO SCREWED.
I don't know if I'll ever buy another Wacom after this, especially after seeing a number of people reporting terrible USB connections. And no, Wacom, I'm not paying you to fix an issue caused by shoddy manufacturing!
I own a Cintiq, but because of space limitations I can't really use it. It's just too massive to fit on the surface with my iMac.
