Ok - so I recently picked up a large Intuos4 tablet and love it. I got a little spooked when I read a very extensive thread in the European forums on Wacom how the nibs and the surface of the tablet wear down very quickly with use. I was unable to find any information about this on the US forum, and very little elsewhere. My question, for Intuos4 owners, is whether or not I should purchase some sort of screen protector or plastic sheet for the surface of the tablet (to reduce wear scuffing)? Is this problematic only with the European models, or are they identical in this regard?
ah - I just realized that I should have probably posted this in the Hardware section. My apologies.
