The Wacom Intuos5 Medium Pen & Touch Tablet is designed for working professionals and serious creatives. The Intuos5 represents a high-quality touch and pen tablet experience with several advantages over other systems. It speeds production time for photo editing, design and art creation.

The tablet shape and surface are engineered to enable ergonomic, consistent strokes, even over long periods of time. The innovative, ambidextrous design allows you to maximize the productivity of both your hands. Plus, having eight ExpressKeys and Touch Ring on the same side of the tablet ensures that they are perfectly positioned for the hand that is not holding the pen.

Its programmable ExpressKeys allow you to activate time-saving shortcuts and modifiers in each of your applications.

    I've been wanting to dive into digital painting / drawing for a while now, so I did my research. However, I couldn't find any clear answer on which size tablet to get: the Intuos5 medium, or large - I have a 27" screen. After much debate, I went with the large. When I got it, I found my arm was sore after only an hour as I've never been trained to draw from the shoulder. So, I returned it and got the medium. A MILLION TIMES BETTER. It tracks just the same as the large did, in my opinion, and for details, you just zoom in any way. It's super light, easy to plug in.

    I haven't used the gestures much yet as I've heard there are a few hiccups going on there with drivers and whatnot, but as a tablet, it's great. Great size and sensitivity for my purposes of digital art and drawing.

    i've owned tons of these, and just upgraded from 4 to this version. without a doubt this tablet is nice step forward in terms of body design and materials used.

    however, the response is jumpy, the cursor often loses it's position and jumps to another spot on the screen. this is pretty frequent and gets very annoying.

    in touch mode, the panel does respond to your wrist, as well as your fingers. just to be clear this is a strong negative. this makes multitouch cumbersome if not unusable for the moment. this is a serious problem which i saw people posting questions about ahead of launch. the touch response is slow overall.

    this is a great tablet, but with clearly unfinished and poorly written drivers, so wait till they really fix the drivers to buy this. i might have to take it back and wait too.

        Comments about Wacom Intuos5 Medium Pen & Touch Tablet:

        As an old school hand artist, I've been using my trusty Intuos 3 primarily as a color rendering tool for hand drawings that I scan in. However I can tell from five minutes after I've gotten Intuos 5 up and running that all that is going to change. It's responsive, totally intuitive and has a lot more flexibility than any pen tablet I've ever owned. I can already tell that I'm going to do much more hand drawing and base art with this thing, and I suspect I'll be giving it 5 stars after I get it totally customized to the way I work.

            I haven't had a chance to use it extensively, but so far so good. I think once you get used to it, it could replace your mouse/trackpad but it take s a little getting used to. I was also surprised at how large this one was (med), the large must be huge! Make sure you have enough space to accommodate it if not get the small.

                I just started to learn the intuos5 tablet with photoshop. The user guide seems very thorough and is geared more towards new users than the video training guides. The drivers are easy to install. It is a very powerful tool and a much better option than using a mouse even for routine use. This product was purchased to use as a drawing tool with my photographs. The tablet is thin and the medium is a good size. Both the pen and the touch screen options are really powerful. I would suggest using this tablet with a large monitor.

                  Combined with Onenote and a Hovercam document scanner this tablet has made my life as a teacher so much easier. My students like the fact I can annotate any lesson. The ease this tablet allows me to change settings, switch between programs and customize operations is great. The only problems I had early on was getting used to the settings, problems were corrected as I found the correct settings. The program you are using has pen settings, Windows 7 also has pen settings as well as the tablet properties, Until you explore all of these you may encounter little glitches. I have them all ironed out now so I am enjoying this tablet. I do lose functionality when I unplug the tablet and go on WIFI, the tablet gets un-responsive. I has to reload the driver to make it work correctly. Now I make sure I am using WIFI before my class starts so I don't have to reload driver during my presentation.

                  It takes a bit to configure and get use to but it offers great control! Don't forget to backup your configured settings once your done and after each time you change them. This won't replace my Magic Pad or Magic Mouse, but it has it's place. My favorite tip is the one with the white tip, but you only get one of these in the box.

                    The Intro5 Medium Pad is the perfect size, especially for my work area, also easy to take on the road. I mainly use it with Photoshop and Light room, with all other software---the mouse is history. This product is far superior then I expected. Easy to install, has many more features than anticipated. I suggest downloading all the extra software NIK etc…at in the beginning, because they only allow you a one-time download opportunity, if you accentually pass the opportunity by to get the software, gone forever---which is the only thing that disappointed me.

                              I've used wacom tablets in the past, and finally decided to take the plunge and invest in one of my own. I decided on the medium because the large is a bit too big to travel with, and the small is, well, small. It works like a charm. Easy to connect, pretty intuitive controls, nice sensitivity. The only thing I wish it had is a way to reverse which side the plug goes in on the tablet side, but it's not that much of an inconvenience.

                                  I bought the product on a Monday and by the end of the week it had arrived! I didn't think I would enjoy using a tablet, since I used a mouse for so long, but it makes editing in Photoshop much easier! Buying a tablet for editing is so worth the money!

                                      I use my Wacom Intuos5 for working on Photoshop.
                                      I used a mouse for years and my wrist finally gave out, so I decided
                                      to try the Wacom tablet.
                                      It was not natural at first to use, however after using it for a while I'm right at home with it.
                                      It is great for airbrushing, retouching and outlining.

                                              I use this tablet for sketching some ideas for some projects. and also create 2D rendering with this powerful tool. Intuos5 is much much much much better than intuos3. The function button on the left side is very useful when you do not need keyboard any longer when you are drawing on the tablet.

                                                Comments about Wacom Intuos5 Medium Pen & Touch Tablet:

                                                I spent allot of time researching other reviews before purchasing a tablet. Wacom by far had the best reviews and my main concern was the number of people who had a hard time adjusting from a mouse to a tablet.
                                                I found using the pen was a very intuitive switch over, as I am usually looking at the screen as opposed to my hand location.
                                                I find the short cut keys on the side to be a bit of a challenge, as I'm so used to keyboard commands and I still need to figure out how to set up the tablet keys for all the various commands I use. I also wish the tablet keys were a little more pressure sensitive and possible to bring up a keyboard screen for typing. With time I think I will get used to this also.
                                                The medium tablet I find to be perfect for working on the 24 inch monitor, any smaller and I think the tablet wouldn't perform as well.
                                                The construction of the tablet seems well made and the feel seems natural while using it.
                                                All in all, I'm glad I bought the tablet, I would have given 5 stars if there were a little more direction on how to set keypads for personal customization. Again, that may just be my learning curve and I would definitely recommend this tablet for anyone wishing to go this route.
