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.Read more ›
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).Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
