I've used a Wacom tablet since I bought my first Intuos 2 (A6 size) way back in 2003. That tablet is still going strong in the hands of a friend who uses it on a lower resolution than my current two screen setup (2560x1440 and 1920x1080). The Intuos Pro seems as rock solid in performance as all of the Intuos tablets that came before it. I own a large Intous 4 (bought in 2010) and I've used the 3 & 5 at work. I bought the medium as I find the smaller size more manageable for photo work (although the large is superb for drawing and painting). So, I haven't had to replace my Intuos 4, I just bought this as it's better for different purposes.
I love the fact that the Intuos Pro is wireless, especially as it means I can use it from the sofa as easily as I can from my desk. Yes the long USB cable was never a problem really, but the wireless is a nice option. It also makes it handy to put the tablet by the side of your desk if space is an issue when doing other things.
If you can afford it, the Intuos Pro is the only option you should consider. If money is tight, or you are not sure about whether a tablet is for you, go for the cheaper Wacom alternatives (Bamboo/Intuos (renamed). Or, even better, see if you can get an older Intuos 4 or 5. The Wacom "budget" range are still good, but anyone who has used the Pro range won't ever want to "downgrade". I can't say I'm a fan of any of the other makes I've tried, the pen just never feels as good and the accuracy certainly isn't as flawless.
So, why 4 stars and not 5? As ever, it's Wacom's driver that lets it down (as always). At home I have both a Mac and a Windows setup, each with Photoshop installed and other vector software such as Affinity Designer (Mac) and Serif DrawPlus X8 (Win). The tablet works beautifully with these programs. However, getting the Intuos Pro to work at all on the Mac took about 3 hours. At one point, I'd even concluded that it was faulty. The issue is that I'm running on Mavericks (10.9.n). Once I'd completely uninstalled the driver, "breaking" my Intuos 4 in the process (which was bizarrely a relief), I eventually found a much older driver on Wacom's site that worked with my OS. That is was good thing, they do allow you to roll back to very early drivers. So, the tip here is that if you have problems with the tablet, I'm 99.9% certain that it'll be the driver at fault - try the forums before you send the hardware back!
For size comparison, check out the photo. My Intuos 4 (large) is on the left, the Intuos Pro (Medium SE) is in the middle, and A4 Bristol board on the right as everyone can identify with A4 paper (when, unless you are from across the pond, but it's not far off Legal size really ;) )
Hope this helps.
One thing that struck me about the reviews whether positive or negative. People never really stipulated what platform they had issues with the product on, operating system or what driver versions etc. So going to Wacoms forum gave me litle to go off in terms of resolving the issue (If I would have experienced any). Nobody wants to buy a product and have endless issues with it. However I took the plunge and I am so glad I did. I have had the Intuous Pro for little over a week now, not long enough to form a real opinion but wanted to log my positive experiences thus far. As I have used it every day for 5 hours + on a Branding Project.
So currently I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate, with all the latest updates. Below is a list of my system specs all running
the latest updates as of 26/12/14. I run AVAST Anti Virus in gaming/Silent Mode. The Wacom Drivers version is 6.3.7-6, this appears very stable and I have not had any issues to cause concern. One thing that I did notice was when I had the wireless kit running from a USB port around the back of my PC. The cursor stopped in CS4 illustrator, I was required to restart the tablet to get it functioning again. To remedy this I just used it on a front panel USB, not had the issue since. I have discussed this with a friend who has also had a similar problem. Had no problems of any sort just running on the USB cable. EDIT: I experienced the disconnection with the wireless kit issue on a number of occasions so posted on the Wacom forums. The problem has never occurred since. Basically I moved my PC case a little closer to my desk as the signal may have been getting blocked as I have all manner of electronics on there. Speakers, mobile phone etc.

The lovely build quality and the superb feel of its surface is stunning. As mentioned I have used a Graphite and a Bamboo previously but these were A5 versions. Functional and appropriate for the work I was doing but using a larger drawing area and a slightly textured surface is a huge improvement. Drawing feels much more natural as I can really activate the use of my elbow now and not rely on my wrist for drawing. Everybodies technique is different but I found a medium perfect for me. I use it on a Dell ultrasharp 24" monitor and they work well together.
Function Keys and Pen
Function keys have been left to run as default at the moment, I still find myself reaching for the keyboard as I'm a bit of a shortcut junky. However certain keystrokes can be added to the function buttons if required. I find that I have no real use for the touch feature (yet), possibly because I'm racing through a project at the moment and using the tablet purely for drawing out logos. Once I have more time to explore the other features maybe it will be a useful function. The zoom dial works well and I find it more accurate and much quicker to use keyboard shortcuts. After using keyboards shortcuts for 15+ years it is a hard habit to break.
The pen is a good weight and is textured beautifully. It is a little broad at the tip, something I'm not used to but it works well and I have adapted to it. It still allows you to apply a broad range of pressure though with ease. From delicate to a heavy handed sweep it delivers it accurately and with nil lag. I have large hands and think it would accomodate small hands just as well.
If you have considered buying one of these and have been deterred due to other peoples bad experiences, then definately take the plunge. Amazon are a great retailer and if you come across issues you can always return the product. There are so many different configurations and OS systems out there it is likely some will run into problems. It is an amazing bit of kit and has aided my production of logos and drawings within illustrator. I have yet to be let loose in photoshop. I do hope you find this somewhat long winded review of some use.
BLOW ME DOWN!!!!! It loaded first time.. ITS TOP BANNANA!!
I DON'T KNOW HOW I MANAGED WITHOUT ONE..
Initially was a little awkward to get use to the pen/mouse. But what a brilliant piece of kit. My photo editing has improved immensely.. looking fwd to better ratings in competitions.
Oh yes I would reccommend to buy one
However, I had a nightmare with the driver/software... and solutions from their support section that I hope will be helpful to others.
After installing using the CD-ROM, it then asks you to uninstall that one and download and install the latest version from the website! Bonkers!... a waste of time and, worse, the driver wouldn't uninstall via the normal Windows process. I had to use a specialised program to uninstall it, but this didin't clear the registry. Grrr.
My strong recommendation is that, if you get this otherwise excellent product, you do NOT install from the CD-ROM, but first download the latest driver (which contains the software, too) and install that.
In the installation instructions, there is conflicting information. One says plug the tablet into the USB port AFTER installing the driver/software; the other says plug it in BEFORE installing the driver/software. The correct process is the former: install driver/software first; then, plug in the USB.
