It is very easy to use and the learning curve is rather small.

I've had this tablet for quite some time now and I have to say that it is possibly the best technology purchase I have ever made.

I am in love with this new tablet after an upgrade from my well used Wacom Bamboo tablet.

UPDATE 4/2 - I have been working on the large tablet for two weeks. It has been working great without any glitches or lockups (i've still yet to have any driver problems..ever). I feel a lot more confortable with the tablet to screen ratio. When I draw the strokes feel a lot more comfortable and natural. When it comes down to choosing between the Medium or the Large size tablet, you have to look at what your main working focus is going to be. Since I do illustration and digital painting, I value the natural feel and movements. I do agree with the fact that you could retrain your muscle memory to a smaller tablet but it's simply your preference. My co-worker has a small tablet and his main use is for photo retouching/editing. The touch function is handy when you get use to the new gestures, but again, I feel that the gestures are mostly for navigation and partially for some convenience. Main focus of a tabled is for pen/tablet graphical work (at least for me). I do like that you can turn the touch gestures on and off with a button. Also really like that if I gently place my finger over the button, the tabled will display the map of each function for the buttons. I still give this tablet a 5 stars because of the ergonomical confort in the design, But, most importantly, it is an amazing tablet to work with. As an digital illustrator/painter, the large size meets my needs for the most natural feel (updated 4/2).

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.

Update 9/11/2012: I have found a compromise system of settings between Apple and Wacom that seems to work fairly well. On Apple's settings pane I UNcheck everything on the Point & Click tab and leave only the two Zoom boxes checked on the Scroll and Zoom tab (the More Gestures tab doesn't seem to affect it). In the Wacom touch settings, Standard Gestures tab, I have UNchecked Tap to click, Tap to right click, and Rotate.

My belief is that part of the problem arrises when the two touch features fight with each other, and this particular setup seems to minimize the arguments.

I'm still using and happy with driver, version 6.3.2-4 (Mac)

Update 7/11/2012: The latest driver, version 6.3.2-4 (Mac) is the first version that I would call good. It seems to include some palm rejection (a feature they had promised was in the pipe-line), and it makes all the difference in the world. At this point if you were holding off for decent drivers (and you are on a Mac), I'd say go ahead and pull the trigger. Windows drivers seem to lag behind the Mac drivers, so I can't vouch for them. The palm rejection is not perfect - it only seems to work at the very bottom of the tablet for some reason - but it makes the tablet very much easier to use with your hand. The pen input remains, as ever, very good.

Update 03/21/12: The latest driver, version 6.3.0-4, has resolved the crashing for me. They have also taken the initiative to contact me an discuss my continued issues with the current driver and my desires for future versions (This was not to my knowledge related to this review, but rather a support request).

Once again I purchase another Intuos to see what improvements have come along. Since I also help beta test software, I wanted to see the capabilities of this tablet.

This is the first Intuos I've owned that the first impression is not great

[EDIT 7/24/13] Come ON Wacom!!!! I Find my tablet refuses to power on, it's once again the dead USB port issue I encountered with the Intuos4. Can you imagine trying to make deadlines and your tablet dying because of this issue?

[EDIT - 9/1/12] Decided to update the review with a new edit. A Wacom rep contacted me over this review and has been working with me since to help keep fixing issues I've mentioned previously. I still get Tablet orientation problems when installing new drivers. I also have gotten a crash sometimes. If you get "TABLET NOT FOUND" There are two services that you need to restart in Windows.

TabletServiceWacom
and
WacomProfessionalTouchService

The HUD is no longer lagged and I have to wait a moment for the switching between wired and wireless mode. I had it crash in Sketchbook Pro 6.

Touch is much better in programs that have actually taken the time to utilize it vs the default. Painter 12 and Sketchbook Pro 6 work much better with it.

[EDIT - 6/19] There is a new driver on Wacom's site 6.3.2.w3 that will finally allow your Windows computer to sleep. I did run into the problem where the icons on my taskbar and start menu were broken but since fixed the icon cache.

[EDIT - 3/24] I finally got the wireless kit, which is an extra 40 dollar purchase, and there are some problems with it too. I placed it up top of my review since people haven't seen much on the wireless performance.
