Wacom's pen-abled technology gives you the natural feel and superior performance of Wacom's patented cordless and battery-free tablet technology. You'll find that using an Intuos pen, mouse, and tablet gives you more control, comfort, and productivity. Alternating between the comfortable Grip Pen and the ergonomic five-button Intuos3 mouse reduces repetitive motion. It's an easy and natural way to work.

Every point on the tablet has a matching point on the screen. When you
move your pen over the tablet the cursor moves in precisely the same way on the screen.

Using a pen tablet is easy
It's easy to use a pen tablet because every point on the tablet has a matching point on the screen. When you move your pen over the tablet the cursor moves in precisely the same way on the screen. Where you touch your pen tip to the tablet is where you click.

Pressure sensitivity
The Intuos3 Grip Pen gives you the power of pressure-sensitive control. Pressure sensitivity lets you control your software tools by changing how hard you press the pen tip to the tablet surface. Using pressure sensitivity you can dynamically control things like brush size, opacity, and more.

6x8 is for me the perfect size.
Mesmerizer
It's super easy to get used to(think using a mirror to put makeup on or shave)and the pressure sensitivity makes the pen feel so real, much better than a mouse.
Ellie Marcion
This is one of the best purchases I have ever made.

I spend about 10 hours a day working in Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, and other design related programs including 3D Studio Max. I've been using a Wacom tablet for about six years now, and I love it. It would be impossible for me to create the designs and illustrations that I do without my Wacom. As an artist and designer, I used traditional mediums for years, and then spent another couple of years trying to figure out how to use a mouse in a way that would permit me to create quality images and designs on the computer quickly and in a way that resembled traditional methods. The Wacom tablet has been my solution and the solution of dozens of my colleagues. I use the old Intuos at home, and I use the Intuos 3 at work. The new Intuos features a USB connection that permits hot-swappable, on-the-go design. Also, the new Intuos pens are much more comfortable to hold that the old plastic pens because of the rubber coated grip. The tip on the pen seem much more "springy" and responsive. The pressure sensitivity is amazing and allows me the complete control over the virtual medium that I am handling (airbrush, pencil, ink, paint, etc). Photoshop, Illustrator, and Flash are all designed to work with the pressure sensitive pens, and the level of control is amazing. Photoshop's new custom brush palette, combined with the Wacom tablet, permit me to create custom brushes to simulate the appearance of color pencil, pastels, and chalk in such a realistic manner that it's difficult to discern what is real and what is digital. Both of the tablets I own have the 6x8 drawing surface, which I find to be an adequate size for me to accomplish all of my design-work and illustrations. It also is a convenient size to fit into my laptop bag (outer dimensions are about 10"x13").Read more ›

My wife recently purchased an Intuos 3 6x8 for me as a gift, and I honestly can't imagine how I ever worked without one of these before.

I've been a comic artist and part-time graphic designer for years in the traditional media realm, and have longed to make the jump to digital media for some time. Anyone who has tried (like I have) to create original art in Photoshop, Painter, Illustrator, etc. all know how difficult it can be working with a mouse due to the lack of precise control. The Wacom tablet gives me the precision control I need to really create what I want to, and additional things like the eraser on the grip pen and the hot keys on the tablet itsself only make it easier to do this. The tablet itself is not near as bulky as I expected, and is actually quite light without seeming cheap or flimsy at all. It is aesthetically pleasing, having a clean, slick look that I don't think many of the other tablet offerings have. Working with it at my desk or in my lap is also easy and quite natural. In terms of size, I think the 6x8 allows for excellent control without being too small to work with or too large and overly expensive. Converting over to using a tablet does take getting used to, but experienced artists will feel at home in no time due to the similarity between a traditional pen & paper (or brush and canvas) and the Wacom tablet & grip pen. I am still getting used to the Intuos myself, but it hasn't been a difficult ordeal in the least and has been more pleasure than pain.

The documentation that physically comes in the box with the tablet is spartan, mainly just installation instructions and discount ads for third-party vendors.

Overall a great product. I thought I should mention something to anyone who may encounter the same problems I did. Firstly, do not use the driver version that ships with the tablet, go to Wacom.com and get the latest version. The version that shipped with mine left huge 'dead areas' in my tablet where it could not detect the pen (EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING) and caused occasional system hangs.

Even with the latest software, cccasionally when using Photoshop the tablet seems to lose its ability to detect pressure variation, this is resolved by restarting Photoshop, but it seems a problem that would be easily fixed in the software.

A simple pen test function would be nice to have in the configuration program (where you could paint in a little box and test pressure and sensitivity). The Graphire series had this feature and I wish it was built in to the Intuos software.

Quality of the product makes up for the few software flaws/inconveniences.

Great item, well made! It's a thick sturdy slab of what appears to be abs plastic which house the electronics inside. Somehow this thing detects pen tilt, pressure, and button clicks through the wonder of magnetics. How it does it, I have no clue. The pen itself has a nib, a rocker switch which can emulate 2 buttons, and an 'eraser'.

The install was snap. If you get problems with weird behaviour, uninstall any specialty software that comes with your mouse ( Such as AOpen's gaming center ). This gave me a few headaches till I found the problem.

The Wacom tablet manager makes customizing a snap. Just bring up the manager, and start the program you want customize mappings in. You can then test out changing systemwide defaults, or 'add' a running program to the manager, and customize settings just for that program. This makes it awesome to use in Silo3D.

One minor niggle, is be sure to doublecheck the box when done. I almost missed and threw away the extra nibs as they fell out of the Wacom pen packaging and into the box. The box comes with 1 felt nib ( pencil feel ), 4 replacement plastic nibs ( my least favorite ), and a 'brush' nib which has a internal spring and is silky smooth. It's easy to replace the nibs by gently gripping them with tweezers, and pulling them, and pushing another nib in.

The tablet and pen itself take some getting used to, as you draw on the tablet, but have to watch the screen. However, after doodling, I was turning out 'pencil' sketches in Corel Painter essentials.

One note, if you are planning on buying Photoshop, or Corel Painter, buy a WACOM first!

The Painter Essentials and Photoshop Elements software bundled with the tablet are eligible for the upgrade price for upgrading to the full versions!

So for the price of straight out buying Painter or Photoshop, you can get a Wacom, and then pay for the upgrade. This is the true bargin.
