100% accurate, functional, efficient and well desiged. Very easy to install (full plug and play) and intuitive to work with. Just plug it in and start drawing!

Great graphics tab, more for the professional but with patience and watching on line videos, you will soon get used to it. Maybe a cheaper one to start with, but once you have the Wacom Intuos Pro, it will serve you as you improve. You also get an excellent back up via Email with Wacom, giving regular hints, tips, updates and new lines etc.
A professional piece of kit from a professional company., you will struggle to find better.

A fantastic tool, easy to use and to customise. The interchangeable nibs are a real bonus and the touch feature is also very useful. I use mine for Adobe CS and Corel Painter, highly recommended. The best price too from Amazon.
The free software offer is very misleading as one is just a half price deal inviting you to spend £38.00 and the other two are just free trials, so I was very disappointed with that.

The product arrived without any additional packaging save the box it comes in. No problem with that as it is well protected. Installed the latest driver from the website after registering the product: fuss free. Connected USB to PC; installed dongle and battery and set my Preferences for working with Photoshop cc 2014 and Lightroom 5, remapping working area and button functions. This is where problems surfaced.

Product works fine most of the time with USB or wireless but when removing USB from tablet all user Preferences were lost; plug in again and they return. Hit and miss too when Switching User - same thing. Extremely frustrating and time consuming checking driver. So I start to research on the Internet and find that driver issues are a common problem for way too many people for it to be their hardware (personally I am running Windows 7 with all updates). There is definitely a problem with the software that runs this product.

I am returning for a refund and will consider something else from a different manufacturer. Disappointing because when it was working OK it was good.

It's a great tablet - great pressure sensitivity, a lovely feel, great LPI resolution, nice stylus.
Comes with several nibs - out of all of them i prefer the "flex nibs" the ones with the white tips - but they only supply one flex nib with the tablet, so if you're like me and dislike the scratchy feel and sound of the felt nibs, the feel of the stroke nibs, and the standard nibs just aren't quite right, you might want to buy a few of the packs of flex nibs (they're a little on the pricey side but to me they're definitely worth it)

If you're umm-ing and aahh-ing over if you should get this size or the large, the whole tablet is roughly the same size as a 15 inch laptop (and so fits in laptop bags of that size and can be traveled with) and the active area is somewhere between 1/2 and 3/4 the size of an A4 piece of paper, so it's not as small as you might think.

If you want something similar but are on a tighter budget, the huion h610 pro seems comparable to this, at a much lesser cost.

The product works as advertised. The driver download and set up was well laid out. The movement of the stylus on the tablet is significantly better than a cheaper wacom I previously used. Beware as to what your actually getting. The tablet feels like (probably is) a £25 made in china tablet. Not too happy about the cheap plastics and mediocre quality workmanship for a premium tablet in the drawing tablet market. I will look elsewhere for better value in the future.

If looks could kill theWacom Intuos Pro Medium Special Edition Graphics Tablet would be a 100% winner.
Its looks are great, nice and sleek. BUT!!!

MAJOR!!! PROBLEM AREA: The receiver for the Wi-Fi connection when plugged into the computer will not allow the computer to boot up. I only discovered this having installed the tablet and upon rebooting with the receiver plugged in. The problem went away when the receiver was removed. This is not ideal and from searching the internet it would appear that this is not an isolated problem. The receiver is causing many problems, I now wait for tech. support to get back to me.

[Having had an e-mail from Tech. Support 17/04/2014. They were apologetic and suggested that I tried connecting via a different USB connection. I wish I had not tried this as this time it not only would not allow my system to boot up but when the receiver was removed the system continued to boot but upon reaching Windows login screen it became apparent that it had also taken out both my mouse and keyboard. So I was forced to do a reset, but the system would now also no longer boot up properly. It took half an hour to reach the log-in page and still I could not get in.

What it did to the HD I do not know but access was denied and I was forced to re-format the drive, but even here it was like pulling teeth. After some three hours I managed to format the drive and re-install Windows 7 64bit Pro. The tablet works well when it is behaving itself and not locking out the system, there seems to be a lot of people having similar experiences.
Well after all that can it do the business. Yes... Straight out of the box, plug and play and you're away. The moment you plug it into your USB slot Windows {Windows 7 64bit Pro] installs the required drivers. It was that quick and also so simple to fit the wire-less option that was included with it.

It worked well left set to default, but if you want to take a little time you can customise it to your own personal liking. The movement as you write or draw is easy and it follows your hand without any noticeable lag. Every thing just flows along as you move the cursor across the screen. It is just right for Photoshop and helps you draw with no effort and accuracy, the paint just runs freely from the on screen cursor as if it was coming from the nib of a real pen or paint brush.

Signing your signature was easy as was writing with it, you did not have to think about it, it felt quite natural. You can zoon in and out using just your fingers and also other similar functions the same way. Everything on screen was easy to access with the pen provided and further aided by the additional buttons on the tablet its self. The medium size is just right, I feel that the smaller one would have been just too small for comfort. If needed the larger one is available but this one fits my needs like a glove for using Zaxwerks Pro-Animator, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Its footprint is not to large as it does not take up to much room.

Downsides. It is rather easy to accidentally turn it off without realising that you have, until everything stops. You can rotate the whole of your page without meaning too, this was annoying when I first did it as I did not know how I had done it. I had to close down the program and re-launch it. It was done by just simply brushing your wrists over the top of the tablet. It is well built but I feel that it could still do with being a little more robust.

No free software bundle and the manual is downloaded as you install the Wacom software. It is not easy to register the product as you are given the wrong web address and it is all in Dutch. Even on the right site finding where to register is not noticeable on screen. Despite this I feel that it would be a very good product if the Wi-Fi receiver problem was fixed as it is also very easy to use and to get used to even if you have not used one before. It would be worth the money and a good alternative or replacement to or for the mouse, but the issue with the Wi-Fi ruins another wise excellent piece of hardware. I am now waiting again on tech. support before I decide whether to or not to return it to Amazon. Without the Wi-Fi it is still an excellent tool but not worth the money without a working Wi-Fi.

I now would no longer recommend this product.

For the money, this tablet was Fantastic. When I bought this, it was on 'Black Friday' so I got a good deal. I had of course done a little research into what Graphics Tablet to get, as my daughter is to set out in University on a Creative Design course. I looked at a few, and read reviews here, then backed up with 'YouTube' videos and it looks like this Graphics Tablet is one of the best to get. Asking a question here also, it transpired that you would need an installed graphics software on your PC or Laptop, as the Tablet itself will come with drivers, but no software, so I got Photoshop CS5 to accompany it. The short cut keys look great also, and the stylus has over 2000 sensitivities which will enable you to do fine lines through to thick lines and all the variations in-between just as if you were using a pencil and were angling the nib. I cant wait for my daughter to open it and use it.

I love it! There is more than enough options to customise it to your liking. The "Keystroke" feature is the best, by pressing 1 button on the tablet you can create new layer in Photoshop (Ctrl+N, Enter), it's like playing recorded actions but you don't have to use the actions in Photoshop just the key stroke. Also "Radial Menu" is very useful, apart from the 8 buttons on the tablet itself, you can show a Radial Menu which can have even more options. It's my 2nd Wacom tablet and I'm proud to own one of its mid-range tablets. It's the best tablet I've owned so far and probably won't need to change it for a while :) I'll stay with it for ages for sure.
I recommend it to anyone who wants to do painting/drawing for money. Medium size is great. Easier to draw circles because your hand is still on the tablet when you move your entire arm (w/ elbow). I have dual screen so it's another advantage to have larger tablet with greater active area. Top product for beginners and advanced users!

Already a fan of Wacom Intuos from University I couldn't wait to get my hands on one myself after saving for what seemed like forever. It's great fun to draw with and can use it as a track pad too if I feel too lazy to use a mouse.
