    Wacom PTH451 reviews

    PTH451 Intuos Pro Professional Pen & Touch Tablet (Black, Small) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 212.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intuos Pro (Small) I should have bought a tablet long time ago, probably would've saved me from hours of editing. If you're used to a mouse tablet use may take some time to adjust. Personally it came natural because I mainly use my apple track pad for just about everything. As for the size of the tablet, which incidentally took me awhile to decide between the small and medium, the small is perfect for my 24 inch iMac. If you have a bigger screen the medium size tablet would likely be the right choice for you. The tablet comes with a pen holder that store extra pen tips, and a wireless USB connection kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't live without it anymore... When you first get this tablet, if you've never used a tablet before (like me), you will be a bit stressed out, it's radically different than using a mouse, trackpad or any other pointing device. But once you get the hang of it, you will wonder how in the world you've lived without it. I use the tablet primarily for Photoshop and Lightroom, but also for web browsing from time-to-time. The pro series has a touch ability so it works like a touchpad/trackpad, which makes it really great for activities where you might not expect a tablet to excel. It even has multi-finger gestures like the macbook pro line's touchpad. In photoshop and lightroom, it will make your life so much easier. It cuts my editing time in half. Being able to precisely edit or draw is wonderful. If you do a lot of editing photos, a tablet is a MUST-HAVE accessory. It does take a while to get used-to, though, as instead of dragging the pen across the tablet, you just hover across. Tapping the pen to the tablet is the same as clicking your mouse. So it's not quite as intuitive as you'd think, initially. The way I learned it is to go back and edit some of my old photos, forcing myself to use ONLY the tablet to do everything. After 35-40 photos, it was like second nature. This probably isn't something you're going to pick up and instantly be comfortable with, but don't let that scare you away, it's a wonderful accessory. The learning curve isn't as steep as I thought it would be, thankfully, as this was a real concern of mine. Wacom also has some great videos on their website about how to use it and how to get more comfortable with it, including several VERY detailed instructional videos about how it works with various programs. The pro line of Wacom tablets has the buttons along the side and the scrolling area. In my opinion, it's worth every penny of the additional price. All the buttons on the side are fully customizable. You can have the buttons do regular button presses or even program them to do complex actions. The pen also has 2 buttons on it (and an eraser on the top), but I believe the pen is the same model as in the non-pro tablet. I was told that if you edit photos, get the small tablet. If you do drawing get the large and if you do both, go for the large or medium. I bought the small and I'm very happy with the area that I have to work with, it's actually larger than I expected. Personally, I think having any larger of a surface might have actually slowed me down a bit. I had a wacom tablet MANY years ago which was tiny and I never used it much because it was TOO small. You won't have that problem with this one though. I think the small is perfect for photo editing and basic computing tasks. When you take the tablet out of the box, you might be wondering where your extra nibs (the tips for your pencil) are. They're inside the pencil holder. You twist the bottom off and they're neatly aligned inside there (very clever placement, btw, Wacom). It comes with 5 regular nibs, 4 felt and one other type that I don't yet understand. I expect that will be enough to last me many years because there's really not a lot of touching going on when editing photos, other than when you are doing direct edits like dodging/burning or targeted adjustments. Even then, you really don't have to press that hard to make it work. I have read that some people are going through one of these nibs every few weeks, but I have no clue HOW they're doing that, unless they're pushing down too hard or misusing the pen. Mine came programmed to use for a left-handed person, which really wasn't that big of a deal, I just downloaded the software and changed it to right-handed. The software is super-easy to use, very intuitive and extremely customizable. You can set up different programs in different ways, which I thought was really a nice touch. The buttons can be programmed to do anything you want them to do. I'm using the tablet on a macbook pro retina model and OS X 10.9.4 (the latest update as of today). The tablet itself feels sturdy and solid, but it's not heavy. It's very pleasant to touch and use. The pen could be a little too fat if you have very small hands, but for me, it's perfect. The tablet has a rubbery-type edge, so you don't have to worry about it slipping out of your hands if you're holding it. It has rubber feet so it doesn't slide around on your desk when you're using it. This model also comes with a six foot cable, which is twice as long as the 3' model in the lower-priced line. I have mine plugged into a powered USB 3 hub, with two hard drives and it works just fine. It also has LED lights on the 4 corners of the active area, which make it really easy to see when you're getting close to the edge, the LEDs are adjustable from low light all the way up to very bright that can be seen in a well-lit room. Overall, this is a really great tablet and I don't think I could live without it for photo editing anymore. Going back to a mouse/trackpad seems unthinkable and quite clunky now. I *strongly* recommend it for photo editors, photographers and anyone who uses photoshop or lightroom. You'll wonder how in the heck you lived without a tablet for so long.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I used a Wacom Pen & Touch tablet for about 7 years. It was a wonderful and useful product. The new products that have evolved over time are even better and the Pro series is now more affordable. The Intuos Pro (Small) is actually large enough for all my needs. I don't use large sweeping gestures so a larger tablet would be far less efficient. I considered a Medium tablet, but I'm glad I didn't opt for it. There was no place in my area to try one out, so we had to purchase sight unseen. We got two of them. Every time I search for tablets, I find that Wacom still holds the top spot. I've only had it for a week or so and I haven't explored all it can do. That will take awhile.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size for a teacher My daughter has the medium size tablet. I borrowed it, decided I liked it very much, but only wanted to stretch to the cost of the small version. I bought it and have been VERY greatly impressed by this size. It is more comfortable to use, lighter, and far more convenient than the next size up. My handwriting is usually small as are my drawing movements and this suits me very well. I use it to write and draw while I teach (math) with a computer and projector and would not give it up for any smartboard or other HID.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This tablet is exactly as described I bought this tablet so that I could be more accurate using Photoshop. The small size was the right one for me to buy, it's really not that small. There is definitely a learning curve but so far I am sticking with it. I watched a few tutorials and had no problems setting the product up. The buttons on the pen and tablet are customizable giving you lots of shortcuts to items that you use often. So far, I like using it but still miss the mouse - I am still not totally used to it. (It has been about two weeks.) I have not found it to be a help to me in Photoshop yet, I am hoping that will come with practice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect After borrowing my sister's Med Intuos 4, I opted for a Small of the newest version. It's perfect for me for retouching. I even shrunk the interface to even smaller area than the default mapping (1/4 of the total area). I'm currently using a 19, expecting to get a 27 when I have the moolah. I might be in the minority that likes an ultra-sensitive Wacom (sensitivity is relative to the ratio of monitor and Wacom size). I do a lot of short and brief strokes for my workflow. Artists who use larger motion and more arm and elbow in their work would probably opt for Medium or Large. I don't like that it's made in China, even though the quality is quite good. (it's a political issue)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Necessity for CONTROL in Photoshop, but This clearly gives opportunity for incredible control of the brush tool in Photoshop. Does it take getting used to? Of course. And you'll have to learn to turn on/off pen pressure controls in PS where you need to, but once you learn how to manage the controls, I think it's great! BUT, ...I will say that I've already had a glitch with it. One day it started acting like I was touching the surface and I wasn't. I wanted to throw it through a wall, and couldn't figure out the problem. However, I removed and replaced the tip in the stylus and it seems to be behaving now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from niiicccce... I bought this to upgrade from a Wacom Bamboo Capture. The Bamboo is quite good but this tablet us awesome. Buttery touch commands and the pen gives you great control. The increase in sensitivity levels gives much better finite control in my photo retouching. I am far from being an artist but can see where it would give great control for painting. How many of us can afford or justify a $ cintique? Once you spend a few days with this to master the learning curve you will never want to use a mouse again, very quick and responsive. This model includes the wireless kit, I have not had a chance to use it as yet but other reviewers say it is quite slick. Try it, you won't be disappointed.
