The Wacom tablet is an essential item for photo retouching. It's easy to use, intuitive and provides a level of control not attainable using a mouse. The size is perfect as it doesn't consume much desktop real estate. The tablet is a pleasure to use and Best Buy's pricing was excellent.

I had the bamboo which was nice, but never really did what I thought or expected it could do and it was pretty small. I was wary of spending the money for this tablet but the program I'm learning to use is very mouse intensive and my right arm and shoulder were hurting something aweful. I was pleasently surprised how well this tablet worked as either a trackpad or pen enabled device on my MacBook Pro, Windows 8.1 or Hackintosh. I was even happier to find that the tablet could be configured for either right or left handed use (I'm left handed). I originally tried the larger version of the tablet, but it was too big. It took up a lot of desk space and the arm movement was very tiring. The medium sized tablet was just the right size. It has been worth every penny and i can use it with either hand (left handed equals ambidextrous).

Excellent drawing tablet
Posted by: PJarmy from: Colorado Springs, CO on
This is my second drawing tablet from Wacom. Set up was a breeze. Love the extra navigational buttons. Larger surface for working on. The pressure sensitive pen is more precise than the original one that came with the bamboo. If you have the extra money and are looking for a great drawing pad for school, work, or just for fun, the medium size Wacom Intuos Pro is the one to buy.

Great Tablet. I am using it in place of my mouse most of the time now. The time for me to edit photos has been cut in half since I have started using the Tablet. The tablet knows what program I am working in and swaps the presets without me having to do anything. Great for going from Light Room to Photoshop and back. My only wish was the battery life was longer. Since I use it instead of my mouse a lot I have to plug in if I’m on all day.

Great Companion to Adobe CC
Posted by: Jaybeads from: Baltimore, MD on
I purchased this to use with Adobe CC for graphic design. It is a great companion. I had owned a Bamboo tablet and hated it. This tablet felt natural from the first use. The work area matches perfectly with me 27" iMac. The features are easy to use. The only downside is the battery takes six hours to charge and only lasts about four hours. I recommend this to anyone who has a lot of work to do in Illustrator.

Great pen tablet for photo editing & PS

I use this for photo editing in LR and for graphic projects in PS. Love it! Worth the upgrade from my older Wacom!

Refined tablet for heavy-duty Photoshop work
Posted by: NJPhoto from: New Jersey on
The Wacom Intuos 5 Pro is the latest digitizing tablet out on the market - and possibly the best version so far. I've been a fan of Wacom for a decade - I use a tablet everyday for processing photos (I am a commercial photographer). The one-side design is greatly inproved over the earlier Wacom models that offered buttons on both the left and right.
Wacom now has a Radial menu, which gives you access to Brushes, Pen tools and even Photoshop actions with a one-button access. Fast and easy!
I recently processed over 500 catalog images with the Wacom Intuos 5 and found I could save more than 30% of the time it took with the earlier Intuos tablet - so, the new tablet bought itself in about 2 days.

Excellent tool for Photoshop and other artsy stuff
Posted by: Ontheopenroad from: on
Bought this tablet after watching multiple Photoshop tutorials where the instructor used this tool. Using the pen and pressure sensitive tablet rather than a mouse allows the user to have better control over the media and to apply better dexterity to movements, actions, and strokes. Sensitivity and actions can be controlled and refined through the tablet's software, as well as settings within the individual apps you use it to control. Soft keys on the tablet, as well as the dual switch on the pen, can be customized through the tablet's software as well.
This tablet can be used direct wired (thru USB connector) or wireless using a small USB wireless sensor. Battery life is good and doesn't require constant charging.
This is my first Wacom, and I purchased the large tablet, but I think that I could have gone with a smaller size and would be just as efficient.

We are having a great time using the tablet. It works great. It's sensitive and picks up all of your movements very well. The one thing I would say is that all of the package software works well with the exception of the AutoDesk Sketchbook. The pen and the software don't work very well together. You will have a delay between the time you place your pen down and make a mark to the time it shows up on the screen. This is a software issue. We have read online that this seems to be a common problem. The other software that comes in the package works great. It will make the marks instantly once you put the pen to the pad.
FIY: you can get the "GIMP" software free and it will take place of the Sketchbook software that's in the package.

Great tool for graphic design classes
Posted by: Zelda1995 from: Hutchinson MN on
I am a freshman college student enrolled in Web Design and Media Graphics. This is making my assignments so much easier to do rather than on my laptop with a mouse. I am still in the learning groove with the different points and touch but am sure I will greatly enjoy using it.
