I've been wanting a graphic tablet for years, but never got around to it.
I thought I'd start with one on the cheaper side, that can still satisfy a designer's needs.
Wacom exceeded my expectations by far, proving to be a very handy tool in my drawing arsenal.
Initially I found it a bit weird in getting used to the stylus, but after about an hour I couldn't even see the difference between drawing with a real pen and the tablet.
I use it with a wide range of softwares, from Photoshop to AutoCad and Vectorworks. As Photishop has brush pressure adjustments, the tablet behaved beautufully and saves me a lot of tine in doing computer renderings.
I couldn't be happier with my purchase - worth every penny!
The drawing (in progress) attached is made using the Intuos tablet.

There's no denying this is a beautifully designed little tablet. The pen feels comfortable in the hand and moves over the downward-angled surface with just the right level of friction. There are two buttons on the side of the pen, an eraser at the top, and four buttons on the tablet itself, all of which can be configured in the driver software.

The touch feature also works well, giving you access to many of the same pinch-and-swipe gestures as Apple's trackpads. Using touch gestures and the pen at the same time can be a little confusing, however, particularly if you have a habit of resting your hand against the tablet when drawing. Since I also have a Magic Trackpad, I keep the Wacom touch feature switched off (using the switch on the right of the rear panel). I use the trackpad with my left hand and the tablet and pen with my right.

One of my main reasons for buying this was to use it with Photoshop on a Mac, and here's where my problems arise. Although most of the functions in Photoshop work well with the tablet, some cause the Wacom driver software to hang for a few seconds. It seems to happen most when using or switching brushes. A click on another input device such as a mouse button releases the hang and executes all the buffered input to the tablet.

This problem may be something related to my specific setup, so may not affect all Mac users. However, Googling "Photoshop Wacom brush hangs" (without the quotes) reveals a lot of similar complaints and no solution in sight. I haven't experienced any problems using Photoshop with mouse input, nor when using the Wacom tablet with other software besides Photoshop.

I purchased this tablet because it has good compatibility with Linux. Linux hardware support is mainly determined by the kernel version and other components of the "hardware stack". This tablet seems to be fully supported back to kernel version 3.13. I have tested the following versions of 64-bit Ubuntu on a combination of real hardware and Virtualbox:

"Trusty" and "Utopic" hardware stacks (kernel versions 3.13 and 3.16) found in 12.04.5, 14.04.1 and 14.04.2 - All pen and touch functions work although the buttons on the tablet are not programmable from the GUI (there may be a way to configure them with a script but I didn't try that)

"Wily" hardware stack (kernel version 4.2) found in 15.10 - as above, but the buttons on the tablet can be programmed with the GUI

"Vivid" hardware stack (kernel version 3.19) found in 14.04.3 - unfortunately there seems to be a bug that is preventing the tablet from being recognised.

My understanding is that the "Medium" sized version of this tablet should behave in the same way. The pen only version should also be basically compatible - the CTL-480(S) series.

I also believe that, currently - November 2015 - the replacement Wacom tablets - the 490 series - are not supported by Linux without applying "development grade" kernel patches etc.(not something most people will want to do).

I would expect that Linux versions derived from these "base" Ubuntu versions will have the same compatibility. It is also highly probable that non-Ubuntu Linux versions with post 3.13 kernels could be made to work if the appropriate additional packages are installed.

Oh, it also works fine on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit!

My last tablet was a Wacom Bamboo Pen, which I loved for about five years (almost 24/7) until the cable in started to get temperamental (though still worked once taped up). I decided I needed a new graphics tablet in case it fully died on me. I knew Wacom made good quality products, so I chose this one as the 'next generation' and the 'step up' from my old one.

The postage was very quick, I was expecting it in 2-3 days and it arrived the next day! Well done Amazon. The packaging was good, plenty of padding and not too difficult to open. I did have an issue with my first tablet pen being a little faulty, occasionally not 'letting go' after dragging, but after speaking to Amazon I was sent a replacement, which also arrived promptly. I was very impressed.

This tablet is perfect. Easy to use, lightweight, responsive... I always use my tablet rather than a trackpad, or a mouse, so it gets a lot of useage and has stood up to the test well. I draw with it, as well as use it for general 'computering', which is a pleasure. The pressure sensitivity is brilliant, the pen is responsive, the tablet surface is very nice.

What more can I say? If you are looking for a graphics tablet that you can use whenever for whatever this is for you. It is a good price and nice to use. Perfect as a present, or to treat yourself.
