Intuos4 or Intuos3 dilemma
I'm in for a new tablet for digital art. (have been using the Graphire4 for a while)
I wanted to get the Intuos4 but I'm really afraid of the USB port problem and the nib wear looks annoying as well. The Intuos3 seems like the safest bet.
should I get the Intuos4 or the Intuos3?
I'm gonna get them from eBay:
They both ship to Israel, that's why I chose them.

Get what is best for you.
Both have their advantages and disadvantages.
For example intuos 3 overlays may be harder to get if the scratches bother you.
Intuos3 had a very large size compared to the i4 model you displayed
Intuos 4 while the USB ports are shoddy, get a better USB cable that fits snug and don't tug things around and you should be fine.

Thanks for the comment!
What does it mean "fits snug"? can you link an example? (sorry for my english)
I actually don't mind about the size at all, I actually do prefer the M size because of the limited workspace I have but I could manage with both.
The thing is, I don't wanna get paranoid about nib wear and USB's unplugging.
Intuos4 sure looks awesome, but I don't know if it's the right deal to go for.
Maybe i'll go for the Intuos4.

Here is a link to the original thread by Arshes and the other victims of Wacoms cost cutting. There are some good photos too.
My Intuos 4 large arrived today. The serial number tells me that it was made in April 2011. Apparently there have been improvements over the initial run. I will let you guys know the moment it gives me problems.
