5.0 out of 5 stars Huge upgrade from Intuos 2, love the touch, 7 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wacom Intuos Pen and Touch Small Graphics Tablet (Accessory)
Bought this to replace an aged Intuos 2 that was starting to play up with uneven mouse movements in pen mode. This new Intuos is a little smaller and squarer.

The main differences are the four physical finger-push buttons, and the multi-touch-sensitive surface. The new Intuos doesn't come with the upright pen holder, but the pen fits the old Intuos 2 holder so I've just kept that.

So far the new surface (which looks like aluminium but is presumably plastic) seems robust to lots of pen usage, unlike the old Intuos which quickly gained scrached areas, especially on the right side where scroll bars are. The new one's multi-touch allows two-finger touch for scrolling, which should reduce the wear considerably and also saves having to keep reaching for the right hand edge of the tablet with the pen.

I've found that switching from pen to touch is easy: holding pen between thumb and first finger I can switch to having the pen horizontal sitting on top of thumb and third finger, with second finger on top, and then use third and fourth fingers to double-touch to scroll. Sounds complicated, but seems to come naturally to me and the pen is far enough away to activate touch.

For people with more than one monitor, the new Intuos driver has a "toggle display" option, which can be assigned to one of the buttons on the tablet: a bit enhancement over the old Intuos 2 driver which couldn't do this.

Just need to get used to the fact that brushing dust off the tablet surface also activates the touch sense, unless you hover with the pen at the same time!
