Wacom Intuos4 Large, exquisite control over all aspects of drawing


Incredible levels of control and exquisitely fine pressure sensitivity make this a worthy upgrade

Love it!


Buy a Wacom case when you purchase this, you will want one later so just dont wait.

Easy to use, easy to set special button features, mouse works very well. Very impresses with its ability to recognise my writing no matter how sloppy I get and corrections are made on the fly. Very easy to use with CS5.5 Master Suite

Not really a con but it is HUGE! I love that it is big but had to buy a bag for it alone

Great Big Tablet


It's massive size is both a pro and con, seriously, it's bigger than you think, take measurements first.

HUGE working area, side buttons are actually useful, sleek design, highly functional. Awesome upgrade from my Medium intuos 2

it's freakin' HUGE, measure your work area before you buy it. It's barely portable, if you plan on moving it, get the travel case. I have no idea why anyone would need an extra large

Large Tablets aren't just to help with carpal tunnel


I have worked on wacom tablets for 10+ years, worked in design for 13+, doing autonmotive and toy design. I have worked on the largest sized and smaller sized canvases. Having a larger tablet has huge advantages. As anyone that has a good art...

You will need sufficent desk space or a way to hold the tablet in a way that is comfortable. I have an unorthadox setup. I prefer working while standing up, my computer is on a tall workstation table with my wacom resting on a stand that elevates at an...

Awesome Portable Pen Table...and so much more


I am a college student that is heavily into graphic and web design. This is my first pen tablet and I am positive I have made the right decision! The big difference between this and the bamboo is the CS5 integration which is essential if you are...

Extremely Portable ; VERY THIN & ERGONOMIC ; Amazing Adobe CS5 Integration ; Same precision as other (larger) Intuos4 Tablets ; Comes with a boatload of accessories (10 nibs, 5 button mouse, pen, pen holder/nib holder) ; Two sided pen, both tip and...

Small Intuos4 Tablet does not have the OLED screen next to the buttons that you find with the other (larger) Intuos4 Pen Tablets

Had been doing graphics using a tablet PC so wasn't sure I'd like this digitizer but I love it. It's been a real work-horse for me over the past couple weeks.

Wacom is king of tablets


You get what you pay for this is an excellent product.

Throw your mouse away immediately.


I think that everybody should be using a tablet of some sort. I use this one for general input most of the time. I'll do maybe 10 hours of illustration per month, over the course of two days, and for that I'll probably plug my Cintiq in anyways. The...

High quality materials, fit and finish is very good despite being made in China, software and hardware are both a clear leap from previous generations of Intuos tablets. This product is a pretty clear winner

None so far. I bought this over a far cheaper Adesso or other brand of tablet because of the resolution. Between 512 and 2048 pressure sensitivity levels, I don't think you will be able to tell the difference (press down... OK now press down 1/512th...

I've never experienced a Wacom before, but now that I have I will never go back to those cheap models. This is definitely a place where paying a little extra is completely worth it! Extra pen nibs, no batteries, the touch ring and express buttons.. you...
