    1) Have had to call Wacom to ask for a new stand for the Wacom Pen since I could not open the back of it where the nibs are. No problem. They are sending a new one. But, I have tried for two weeks to unsuccessfully install Inkspace, the software that the Paper uses to save what you have drawn on the paper over the tablet. I have talked to Wacom twice and so far they have been pretty unhelpful. The phone conversation ended with the customer service person saying he would investigate the problem and then him emailing me with the usual do everything all over again, which I had done. Nothing seems to work, so why did I buy the paper edition if I can't save anything I do on it. Wacom forums mention this as a problem since Inkspace inception, and Even Inkspace seems to acknowledge it for Macs, but Wacom does not seem interested.

    A bit expensive but does the job

    Good tablet, just expensive, I upgraded from a very old model of Wacom (could not remember which one). It does what is supposed to do, just did not expect it was going to be big for a medium size so it is kind of hard to navigate with the pen. Having the paper to digital transfer was good, it looks cool getting transferred from paper to your PC, I was just scared to scratch the tablet even with paper on top of it. You can use a normal bond paper, not just the paper that comes with the tablet. The ink for the paper though looks a bit light but it does its job. Been using it for drawing and editing photos in Adobe Photoshop CC, shortcuts are very convenient but the touch ring is hard to manage but it will do.

    The Best Wacom Yet

    If you are a photographer and/or an artist and do not use a Wacom you are missing out and this is the best one yet. The only recommendations are to order the smooth top and extra nibs as the new nibs are very soft and I go through them every week or so. The softer top should help prolong the nib life, I tried the rough surface and then switched to the smooth surface with little difference, but I do prefer the smooth. I am a photographer but spent the extra few dollars to get the paper edition in case I ever needed to use the paper function, and it was worth the extra few dollars because it will cost you double or more to add it on later.

    Way too complicated for Beginner

    I bought this for my daughter who is a budding graphic artist. After opening it we realized it was just way to complicated to use for a 12 year old. She didn't have any use for drawing on the paper and you have to use their software to draw which was awful at best. There was no instructions and the website instructions were fair at best on getting started and trying to program the buttons. It was way to expensive so I returned it and got her different tablet that was more suited for beginners and at a much better price point. If your a professional you may love this so that I can not comment on.

    Completely intuitive design and functionality. Bluetooth comes in very handy. Gestures and palm recognition are integrated seamlessly. The Inkspace feature is a must have feature for artists. I would highly recommend to upgrade to the paper version for most professionals, although Intermediate users would do just fine with the standard version. My only Con is that I wish the active area was slightly larger for the medium sized version, although it does prove to be very portable.

    This is my 4th wacom tablet and quite honestly the first one that feels like I'm not scratching rough plastic onto sandpaper. The feel is a lot closer to really drawing and composing with ink and paper. I was disappointed to discover that the wireless bluetooth connection lags and can become unresponsive when working with graphics that use a lot of ram. Because of this, i always plug it in and have no troubles then.

    I bought this tablet to help me work on finer details of photos that I will be laser etching. I used the pen to trace a cookie cutter and it didn't draw a complete line. Tried Inkspace too. I like the feature to save to SVG. Lots to learn. I give it four stars as I had a hard time getting the tablet to register online with Wacom's website.

    Went in a few days before Xmas, and a manager saw me struggling trying to find the Wacom tablet. He took me directly to the spot and answered a few questions. The tablet works great and blends drawing on paper into the digital world. Easy to transfer drawings to Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator for post-production work. Perfect present for a high school art's student as well as professional.

    Very Good Overall Product

    I am impressed with the build quality of this product. Setup was pretty easy from my take. Unfortunately, this does not come with any software. I do think it's price pretty high - if only Wacom could lower their pricing better. I can see that a future upgrade for me would be one where I see the drawing on the screen. It does take some getting use to having to draw on a pad, but looking on a computer screen.

    Powerful tool my son can grow into

    My son has been interested in learning to draw on the PC. After researching, I chose the higher end pad. He is a fast learner and I wanted something he would not be done with by summers end. While it did take some adjustment, and I leaned I had to purchase or download free drawing software for our purposes, he is already mastered the basics and then some. Satisfied with the purchase.

    I love my WACOM PAPER, this tablet has really helped with my workflow! Remember, it is not only an improved version over all of the other wacom tablets, but it also has a really fun addition which is to be able to draw in paper with a special wacom pen and then transfer your drawing digitally. I am very happy with this product and as always WACOM did not disappoint.

    My daughter loves the tablet. There were some updates that needed to be done, like anything else. Make sure you get ALL of them done, my kid was getting a little frustrated until she realized she had more to do. Since she got it figured out she loves it. Go one youtube for tutorials, functionality is pretty robust.

    This was a more practical size for a drawing tablet, however I thought, and the associates thought, this had a screen. Little did I find it's an ink pen and paper, and a stylus and the tablet. Little disappointed but it works for what I need for the time.

    I tried the medium thinking it was the size I needed. The drawing area was too small, smaller than my intuos medium. The large one was huge. It worked well and I enjoyed the ink capture feature was great! I noticed every now and then there was lag. What I'd reallyou like us for wacom to introduce the ink capture feature to the cintiq line.

    Daughter is a student at the Academy of Art University. she uses these in her class. This is the upgraded version of the one they use. She is very happy with it and uses it for her projects. She even plans on going back thru her sketch book and trace all of her older renderings to save digitally.

    Amazing!! I love that it captures my sketches on paper and digitally. I upgraded from Intuos Pro because it was no longer compatible with my new iMac. I can use this with my iMac and it works seamlessly with the Procreate app on my iPadPro.

    Product has a huge learning curve even with the paper option. Have to keep your hand off of it to keep from making haphazard strokes. Need a separate screen if you’re not using the paper. Would recommend only if you’re experienced with Wacom already.

    Wacom Intuos Pro. is a great Drawing tablet! It can be used with or without Paper for Drawing. It is easier for me to use paper because I have always used paper for Pencil or Pastel drawings. And, anyone into Digital Art would really benefit from This tablet!
