There is no substitute. With each new version Wacom improves upon their already brilliant piece of technology. There is absolutely no way you can edit photography without one. There are zealots who claim otherwise, but that's only because they haven't used one yet. The infinite amount of detail with which you can control your editing in no way can a mouse compare. With this version, they even include a wifi kit which is absolutely perfect in every way! The customization allowed on this tablet is superior and makes your workflow so much more efficient, if you're not using one, you might as well be using an Etch-a-Sketch. Check out some of my tutorial videos on YouTube for a live example of how I use mine.

I have been using Wacom tablets for years. I purchased the Intuos Pro in January. I use it primarily for photo editing work.

Shortly after the purchase I started setting up some of the more advanced features in the control panel software, like display mappings for each application, Express Keys, Touch Ring, Radial Menu, etc. It did not take long for me to discover issues with their software. Mapping settings were not persistent, and had to be re-mapped every time I rebooted. The Radial Menu only worked on Display 1, not 2.

I contacted support and they acknowledge these as issues and stated that future releases would rectify the problems. That was true, but I had to wait about 3 more months to see those fixes.

Just this month my wireless adapter died. I diid an RMA. The new unit seems to work, but it was a bear to setup. I ran into all types of issues getting the device to work. Finally got it working, but still today, when I am connect wirelessly, the Wacom preferences show "No Tablet Found" but the device works. And I can see the tablet in the control panel software (which is good).

The worst part of the whole scenario, is the disappearance of support. After the RMA they have not responded to a single request for additional help. That is quite surprising for a device they call "Pro".

Mac OS X 10.9.4
Wacom 6.3.8-2

Awesome tablet, now a lifeline for my edits

Comments about Wacom Intuos Pro Professional Pen & Touch Tablet (Black, Medium):

Ok to be honest this is my first time ever to use a tablet to edit pics on PS.
I am still getting used to it, the pen is pretty good and the tablet is very accurate.
I surely enhanced my editing time by 20% so far. May be it will get to 50% once I am used to the device.

Comments about Wacom Intuos Pro Professional Pen & Touch Tablet (Black, Medium):

I bought this to replace an existing Wacom tablet and this one blows the old one away (Wacom Bamboo).
Everything can be customized to your own preferences including the function buttons on the tablet which are a great addition from what I was using.

Making My Job Easier

Comments about Wacom Intuos Pro Professional Pen & Touch Tablet (Black, Medium):

I use my Intuos Pro Professional Pen & Touch Tablet (Black, Medium) for graphic design and color separations. I previously used the Intuos Creative Pen and Touch Tablet Small and I will say that I like my new one one hundred times better. It make it a lot easier to do design work. The pen! I love the pen with all the different tips to choose from and the holder for it so it can't be misplaced. I like that is it wireless when need be. So many different tools with this one and so many features to help make my job easier!

Wish I had stuck to the cheaper version.

Comments about Wacom Intuos Pro Professional Pen & Touch Tablet (Black, Medium):

I really want to like it. I got it to replace my smaller, entry level Intuos "Bamboo" tablet but I really don't see any benefit. The wireless feature requires a dongle, so you're still using up a USB port. Also, you need to keep the driver updated or it gets really funky– occasionally being slow, non-responsive or not recognizing a second monitor. I'm a photographer who does his own basic retouching. If I were a full time retoucher or illustrator and really wanted to program in the quick keys I could see it being more useful.

Wacom provides yet another quality device

Comments about Wacom Intuos Pro Professional Pen & Touch Tablet (Black, Medium):

I've been using Wacom tablets for many years now. The latest iteration of the Intuos Pro has been a delight to use. I'm a huge fan of no longer being tethered via a cable and the device has matured quite nicely over the years from a form and function standpoint. Very pleased with my purchase.

This is a great tool. I had the Bamboo which worked well but doesn't compare with the Intuos. Great control for retouching photos.

Tablet, Apple Computer Issues

By Harry

Verified Buyer

Comments about Wacom Intuos Pro Professional Pen & Touch Tablet (Black, Medium):

It was okay in general, but there are some features that do not work with Apple computers. I called Wacomb support to make sure it wasn't something I did or did not do correctly, they confirmed the issue. I returned the tablet and I wish I could remember what is was that didn't work...sorry.

Terrible Allergy to Stylus

Comments about Wacom Intuos Pro Professional Pen & Touch Tablet (Black, Medium):

Having been a loyal Wacom user for years I was excited for the new Intuos Pro. The tablet comes with a stylus and I purchased a second one. The stylus, unlike to old ones, which were GREAT, the new are now coated in a rubbery material which I finally realized was the reason for a terrible contact allergy. I have no idea how I can continue to use this tablet and hope Wacom will have a solution. So disappointed.

Works great. I haven't used it much yet, but so far, so good. I did have to load the software twice to get the stylus to work, but other than that, no hitches.

Comments about Wacom Intuos Pro Professional Pen & Touch Tablet (Black, Medium):

It takes a little getting used to. There are some great YouTube videos on this item for getting started. The advertisement here is that you can get rid of your mouse and use this instead. I'm not ready to do that yet. I purchased it as a tool for Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. I have a hard time moving the mouse with enough resolution and accuracy as I'd like. So, I'm getting going on this and I'll be sure to update you on my progress with this tool.
