    Just a note of caution though. If you accidentally damage the touch surface you have to have the tablet sent in for repair. The way the tablet is built, you simply cannot get another overlay sheet as you can in previous models. So it is something to consider.

    I believe Mac Users got a newer driver. I have yet to see one for Windows 7 for the US?

    Well this just gets stupider.

    I got my wireless kit from Wacom last night and charged it. When you put in the wireless kit, it messes up your Wacom preferences. If you navigate to the Properties, it doesn't show your preferences if you use the stylus or touch. HOWEVER, if you navigate with it with a mouse or trackpad it does eventually show your original preferences.

    But hey, it gets "Better" When my tablet is plugged in now, it completely lost my orientation preferences in touch mode. Basically if I use the stylus, it remembers my left hand orientation. However if I navigate with touch it is in right hand orientation mode. WTF. Am I supposed to flip the tablet around like someone with OCD?

    I also noticed that if you go into full document mode unplugged you may lose your cursor if you're navigating through touch. I watched it happen a few times.

    I am soooooooooo frustrated with this product right now.

    Well I finally fixed if if you want to know how to do it?

    I had to navigate in touch mode where the orientation problem was occurring. Despite the mapping preferences stating it was "express keys right" I had to make another selection, choose the one I wanted again in touch mode and it finally orientated itself correctly.

    One thing I noticed is that the express key performance is better when in wireless mode. So it's really strange.

    Are you reporting any of this to Wacom?

    Yep. Before I even made this post complaining about it. I reported it as a defect and contacted Tech support.

    Nope. Tried it several times. I still get bad lag on USB mode.

    I know the pens from the Intuos4 work but are they the exact same pens or are there specific Intuos5 pens?

    The first review on Amazon was a Mac user that had issues and crashes and until a driver update was done. So I guess it depends on the driver version. But it looks like Mac users may be having less issues?

    So I see the Amazon reviews are still pretty bad. The latest guy complains about the nib wear. Now I know the I4 had the nib wear problem and they came our with a new surface so even if you were a gen 1 I4 owner couldnt you get the newer sheet here? https://www.wacom.com/en/Store/Pages/Product.aspx?product=ACK10031&crumb={35210861-B96F-4926-8E09-AD29390F45CF}


    I guess what I am getting is you cannot just change the surface sheet now if they correct it like you could with the I4.

    I guess that's only if you go for the touch version.

    The non touch version is pretty much the I4 with less features IMO.
