    Wonder how many people are using the inkling?

    I knew this was the direction they were going with after seeing so many revisions on the bamboo line. I may get one (intuos5) for the sake of a review, but not sure.

    Already there are people making pressure sensitive pens for the iPad http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...-stylus-for-ip

    If they want to flood the market with tablets every year or so, that's great, but I really hope they bring the prices down.

    Why does that guy in the video look so bored?

    Dunno if the extra features sell me at the price, but if my Intuos4 cable blows out again, I'd be tempted to get this just to have a large wireless tablet. Though it's annoying that they make you pay extra for wireless.

    Or... Why don't they just make the Intuos4 wireless available in large... Grrrrrrr....

    (I'm on my second Intuos4 after the first had the usual USB cable issues. And I got the first after my Intuos3 had USB cable issues. HELLO why don't they fix this already!!)

    (Ironically my itty bitty Intuos2 still works and has never had cable issues.)

    I never had any cable issues with my old graphire or now with my intuos 4, and I travel with them. Which makes me wonder what the heck you do with them.

    Hmm, i'm slowly getting convinced on the practicality of multi-touch..

    Freakin exactly. When he tilted his head at 0:40 i was thinking 'jesus christ, they could at least choose actors who are interested in what they're doing'. I find all of Wacom's promotional videos to be utterly cheeseball.

    Price will come down as with any product, although IMO the greatest benefit of buying late is having far less technical issues (in general), which goes for most products as a lot of consumer grade tech is pretty much still in a phase of testing upon release. Products are tested of course, but most often undiscovered issues get overlooked.

    Yeah, they seem to be far more interested in further profits nowadays :/

    Sounds like they might have fixed it. When did you buy your Intuos 4? Is it the XL or smaller?

    I don't do ANYTHING weird! It sits next to my computer or on my lap, and that's all it does! I did travel with the first Intuos4, which may not have helped... I'm babying the new one and not travelling with it for now...

    I swear the ports go at the slightest provocation though. I always panic if my elbow so much as nudges the cable a little.

    Of course it's possible that some are better soldered than others, or there may be varying quality between batches. My first Intuos4 was an earlier batch, I think... I'm crossing my fingers that they might have improved the newer ones.

    Sounds like they might have fixed it. When did you buy your Intuos 4? Is it the XL or smaller?
    I think it's the Intuos4 Large (PTK-840) - which ironically seems to have disappeared from Wacom's site... Now they only show Intuos5 and the Intuos4 Xtra Large...

    I got the first in 2009, so that was the generation that definitely had problems. I got the second last Fall, don't know if it will have problems but I'm treating it with extra care just in case.

    The ports were poorly soldiered on the first versions of intuos4 (there have been claims of a fix)

    In addition the cable for the USB ports...mine was rather wiggly when I used it for left hand orientation. They told me that "Well you got two sides, use the other" and it's like
    "No I paid for a working tablet that should be under warranty fix your stuff" It was just normal use, I wasn't acting like the Samsonite gorilla throwing luggage about. Paid 50 bucks just to ship the damn thing out to Wacom to repair it.

    After it was returned, a short time later the cable itself failed. It was pretty thin and cheap anyways, so I went with an Amazon cable and it fits snug. The stupid part is the replacement cable was 3x the cost on Wacom's site vs a 5 dollar USB cable from Amazon that's plated.

    Which cable is this exactly on Amazon? I might get one just as a backup... (Last time I looked on Wacom's site, I couldn't find replacement cables at all... And I looked in various stores but couldn't find the right kind anywhere...)

    Because yeah, the cables are pretty chintzy. :/

    I actually like their cables, for 5 bucks they're better than the ones I have paid 20 for.

    http://amzn.com/B001TH7GUU I also got this

    If I hope for anything with the Intuos5. Is that the nib-wear issue has had some resolution to it.

    Just have to wait and see. It does look pretty swanky though. I did prefer it a little more squared than the curved corners.
    Aesthetically, I prefer the Intuos4.

    Doesn't that just piss you off? If they really wanted to keep their customers, they would pay for the shipping and replace the product, no questions asked. But i guess they pretty much own the market resulting in a strongly profit-driven business strategy and an almost 'lol, get fucked' attitude towards customer service.

    I don't know, maybe i'm just being a bit anal here as they do appear to have fixed the USB port thing, though it took a while. Or was it just the USB cable being too thin?
    I think i'll go for a Large Intuos 4 through Amazon, as i read somewhere in the Wacom forum section that their customer service is good. Hopefully their stock is a recent batch, lol. Thanks for the mention of that cable as well, i'll be sure to pick one up!

    I heard they improved that as well over time (though I don't know why they didn't wait and release the product after they fixed such obvious problems..).

    from wiki:

Wacom Europe sells a bundle that includes the revised surface sheet and replacement nibs at a reduced price for installation in existing Intuos 4 tablets.

    Looks like they're for sale now on the Wacom Americas site. I'm curious to hear some reviews.

    But I wonder how the touch control work? Wouldn't the palm of your drawing hand interfere?
    In the second video Arshes posted it looks like he has the pen tip pressed against the working area while using his left hand to manipulate the screen.

    I think I might like the touch controls if they're implemented well (and customizable). I like the idea of being able to rotate the canvas and zoom and such with the flick of a wrist. I'm pretty happy with my Intuos 3, though, so I can't justify spending $400 I don't even really have on one of these yet.

While so occupied, the artist never ceases to be subservient to nature, but instead of imitating the incidents in a paltry way, he imitates the laws."-Andre Lhote

    I'd say the intuos4 is beautifully designed, poorly crafted in some areas that mattered. One of the things touted was its durability. (I'm not saying artists are throwing their tablets about when they get frustrated...) They just last.

    That being said I know that may be a problem when it comes to churning new products. "Well this still works, why get another one"

    I may just get the intuos5 medium again to give reviews. And I mean a review, not like some of the idiots on Amazon Vine that just gave a 1 sentence review when Wacom gave them out for review. I do my best to give honest reviews from my viewpoint and not score free stuff, and I also review products I pay for...but I digress...

    You may want to check out more of Amazon Basics line though because a lot of people spend crazy amounts of money on so called quality HDMI cables and there's really no big difference. You can save yourself quite a bit from their Basic Line if you need one. They also went to selling dvd-rs, batteries and memory cards....but that's another tangent.

    The other reason I may get one is to help out users on the forums here.
