After fighting with my Huion, I decided to bite the bullet and pay more for a Wacom drawing tablet. There's a reason Wacom is the industry standard. My Intuos lets me concentrate on sculpting in ZBrush, throwing down concept art in Photoshop and painting topology in Maya. It's better than the less expensive Huion in every measurable way. My personal experience proves the old saying "You get what you pay for".
I highly recommend this tablet to any photographer!
Wacom Intuos Pen and Touch medium tablet model CTH680 review.
The Wacom Intuos Pen and Touch tablet was ordered on December 30th from Amazon.ca, arrived on January 3rd. Shipping was free.
The Intuos was in a box about 50 percent larger stuffed with a bit of brown paper. Neither boxes had any obvious damage, both were spotlessly clean. Opening the Wacom Intuos box I found:
A tablet wrapped in two protective papers, one a thin black fabric of the type used for gardening that prevents weed growth, the other a white material similar to some flooring underlay, except much thinner and is often used for wrapping electronic goods.
A USB cord that had caps and a twist tie.
A pen held in place by two black foam discs.
A small black paper box similar to the style of a CD case. It contained numerous papers having offers of dubious quality and or worth, a CD or DVD of drivers. A small plastic bag with a small black nylon fabric the size of an unfolded clothing tag. It has several holes along two edges, and a small black rubber ring that appears to be a replacement for a small blue rubber ring on the pen. A quick start guide.
A thin pressed paper holder that is used to protect and hold all the items.
Absent from the package is any real documentation that informs how to change pen nibs, what the fabric with holes is for.
Absent too is the software disc. Instead you are given a code on the driver disc and this is used to download the software. When registering you are given a choice of which software of the four offered for this model.Read more ›
- pen precision
- it looks great on my desk
- the pen holder is useful
- the blue indicator on the right showing signal being sent and received
- the compact design
Not really good for Windows users who:
- work on multi-display setup with each display having different resolution but different DPI
- work on high resolution displays (3200x1800 - the software to configure this tablet does not support this and it is unusable)
- use functions at the edge of the screen: Sometimes the cursor flies over the border of the screen appearing on the other side - -scrolling with scroll bar turns into tricky task every-single-time
- Windows 8.1. users looking for nice touch interface = Wacom is unreliable and I ended up disabling touch interface most of the times (it's partially a problem with Windows and its support for devices like this in the Modern UI apps)
- bought the WiFi Accessory kit: Sometimes it's crashing the Photoshop when reconnecting (it drops connection 3 times a day)
- use USB micro cords with larger adapters: the design of the tablet ports does not allow to connect the cord
- the power button is on top and with so many reconnections through WiFi it is a very inconvenient place (you always need to look at it when turning it on/off)
I can compare it with old (6-7 years) Creative tablet that cost half the price and had twice the area. Wacom Intuos is much more precise but given the size they ended up the same.
To sum it up: Wacom has great hardware, but software part is nowhere close to the that quality. At least not for Windows users.
- If you want the free software that comes with it(back of the disc) you have to register your product and follow the steps on the website.
- You might have to download the latest drivers off the website.
- The extra(3) pen nibs are IN THE BACK of the tablet, not in the box. As shown in the pictures
The only thing that really bothers me (hence 4 stars) is that the USB cord is really short for me. If you were using a laptop I don't think it would be such a big deal, had a small desk, computer layout, etc. It's approx 36 inches long and as shown in the pictures, is designed to go to the LEFT. Regarding computer layout, my computer is to my Right(with all its usb ports), so i'm losing about 12 inches of cord and bending the cord backwards, which I don't particularly like doing. So I can't fit it comfortably on my desk. That aside, if you don't have this problem then it's no big deal, just something to consider.
tldr; If your computer is too far from your workstation you are going to have a bad time.
