Spend the money on a Wacom, nothing else compares in quality, sensitivity, or response time.

After alot of research, I finally bought this for myself at a really nice price from Amazon.com. The academic version is exactly the same as the regular one, so I don't know why you would want to spend more, when this is the exact same thing. Comes in the original packaging, software bundles included, mouse, and pen holder with extra nibs etc. It's all there! So do yourself a favor and buy the academic one. You'll be glad you did. Spend the money on a Wacom, nothing else compares in quality, sensitivity, or response time.

I use this for my digital painting, and love it! The large surface area makes it so nice to create large sweeping strokes. I love the customizable function buttons with the led display next to them. And the scroll wheel is my most used feature. Use it all the time for zooming, brush size, and rotation of the canvas if necessary. If you are into digital painting or photo retouching, a tablet like this will make your job so much easier and nicer. A mouse feels like using a bar of soap to draw with to me, and I'm glad I made this purchase. I have a real pen to paper feel when drawing/painting now. This tablet is compatible with every painting program I have tried, and will run on Windows, Mac, and Linux. (Linux requires a bit more work to install the drivers, but that is the nature of Linux).

The pen is very precise and sensitive. I'm a graphic designer and I'd recommend it to every one who's in this field of profession. Although it's a little pricey, for long run, it's worth it.

It is an excellent product from a very prestigious maker. My son is using the Acad INTUOS4 Large Pen Table at the university in one of the final design courses and he says it works beautifully, has an excellent working area, high versatility and he is the envy of his classmates.
Another important observation is how easy it was to buy from Amazon in comparison with other suppliers who demand a series of documents from the university and their price was higher. Thank Amazon for your service, is excellent.

Sincerely Yours Carlos Solis

I upgraded to this tablet (the large size) from the Intuos2. I honestly didn't think much of the buttons and the wheel on the tablet prior to getting it, but decided to give it a shot anyway.

A list of the things I like:
- I'm lefty and you can switch the tablet from righty to lefty setup super easily. I find that so many products, even when they allow you to use them as a lefty, leave you with at least a slightly inferior experience. It's the same exact thing here either way. As a kid who got stuck with the dreaded dull and rusty "lefty" scissors in elementary school (yes, I'm scarred by that experience), Wacom gets bonus points just for that! :)

- The buttons and wheel are an amazing asset. I use the tablet for Photoshop, Painter, ZBrush, 3DCoat and Illustrator. You can set up different shortcuts for each app. The small screens that act as labels for the buttons are very helpful, since you don't want to memorize what 8 buttons do in each app. I used to have to reach over my tablet to press the keyboard buttons for buttons like Shift, Alt, and other shortcuts. Having the buttons on the tablet means I can work a LOT more comfortably, I rarely have to touch the keyboard or mouse. I can't imagine working without the wheel either, since it makes changing the brush sizes or zooming in/out of a canvas so intuitive.

- I got the large sized one and though it's a bit more than the medium in price, have never regretted it. I love having the larger work space. It made using the table feel a lot more natural. I never feel like there's something "lost in translation" when using the tablet as compared to working on paper - that's something that happened a bit with the smaller Intuos2 I had.

- The pressure sensitivity does feel much improved from the Intuos 2.

I'm a graphic artist doing primarily photo retouching, and this is absolutely necessary for what I do. To edit very intricate details with the wacom tablet is a piece of cake. I can't stand using a mouse anymore, even for every day tasks.

The only gripe I have about this is that there doesn't seem to be any way for me to adjust the speed the pen moves around the screen while it's in ... whatever mode it's called where the cursor is locked to the position the pen touches on the tablet. (That might be because my screen is only 15" on my macbook pro...)

Overall, it's wonderful! I love it and highly recommend this to others in this profession!

Very sophisticated tool, and it's not often a product inspires affection, but this one does. Medium is quite large enough for me - I had an XL Intuos 3 and it was too big to be ergonomically sound(and very ugly in comparison). The wheel, soft keys and displays are awesome. Pen nib wear is an heavy - couple of full days gets through one, and the writing surface is getting scratched. But I like the tactility, so I guess you can't have it all. Like the ID rings in the pen - I made mine red for Rotring nostalgia.

This is the fourth of the WACOM brand product I've purchased. I have a very old tablet which I still use on occasion on my ol' XP computer and uses the very robust serial port style connector. Works great and is still supported with updated drivers.
This newer version is much, better and lighter but not all that much faster. The Intuos4 has a nice touch wheel that gives the option of rotate, scroll, zoom and auto scroll/zoom. It also has some nice buttons to help along with the users choices. Over all the unit is pretty nice and for it's thickness fairly stiff. A couple of drawbacks are the location and method of connection. It uses a really cheezy mini USB connector which in all honesty considering it's suppose to be portable (option is a carry bag) is assembled onto the circuit board using the most unsophisticated method of surface mounted solder joint. Great for production, awful for usage. The joint is extremely weak and easy to break. The cable is very stiff and the connector pokes straight out begging to be bumped and banged. It has two possible connections, one for right and one for lefties. Both are junk and after breaking one then breaking the other it has to go back to the factory at your expense. If it's within warranty no problem to repair but you still pay shipping to them. If's out of warranty, you pay shipping and for another board (about half the price of the whole thing). There is a wireless version so if I ever replace this one it's going to be wireless. I also use the Bamboo Capture version for my laptop work but it too is corded. I've ordered the wireless kit.
Over all I like it when the connection is firmly taped to offer some strain relief.
