Great product!

 

I will be buying the wireless module to see how well it works.

As a photographer I have used just about every method of digitizing from tablet pc, artboard displays, to many different pen tablets and I must say the Wacom Intuos CTH480 has been my favorite method. Pros: It is small enough to be portable, and big...

Awesome!

 

I love to draw in my spare time, I still recommend this tablet if you do too :)

Absolutely love this tablet, draws way smoothly than the Bamboo I've had for years ; It works so well with PaintToolSAI, and my drawings have never looked so good

Only downside is when I unplug the tablet from my laptop so I could tote it to another room and plug it back in, it'll lag like crazy. The only fix is to restart the computer, it's not entirely a big issue with me, but it can be a little annoying

Great for Osu

 

I bought this device specifically for the game Osu! (a rhythm game) and it has dramatically improved my performance. People will generally use this for digital art but I don't.

After being plugged in for a long period of time and I go to use it again the cursor is slow and jittery. I'm not sure if this is a driver issue or not.

Not desktop friendly, but gets the job done

 

I got this tablet as a cheap stopgap purchase after my Intuos 2 finally bit the dust and I was sad to see that while many of the specs are similar to the old high-end Wacoms (this tablet had the same levels of sensitivity and the same drivers for...

Solid construction, though the pen feels rather cheap and the rough, matte-finish drawing surface starts to scuff almost immediately. The simple black and silver design is nice and clean compared to my old curvy, purple and tan Intuos 2. Easy to...

The multi-touch gestures are neat but essentially useless as you'll accidentally trip them while moving your hand or flipping the pen over to erase. I ended up disabling almost all of them after a day of inadvertently drawing specks everywhere,...

Reliable and Easy to Use!

 

The tablet has software that works great without any glitches or failures to run (unlike non-wacom or non-name brand tablets, which I have owned before). The buttons are really useful for saving shortcuts, and the little holder for the pen helps store...

Although one of the pages in the info says that it comes with spare nibs, I found none in the package. I didn't contact anyone about it right away because I thought it was no big deal. Now that I am ~6 months into owning it, the original nib is worn...
