WACOM Intuos5 Touch PTH650 Medium Pen Tablet

  • 8.8" x 5.5" Active Area
  • 5080 lpi Resolution
  • 200 pps Max. Data Rate
ICON Loading...

The medium Intuos5 touch is the most popular and versatile choice among creative professionals. With 48.4 square inches of working area, the medium size of the three Intuos5 touch models is preferred by those who desire ample workspace, yet want a tablet that still fits into most laptop computer bags. The medium size Intuos5 touch has eight ExpressKeys, and the same intuitive multi-touch surface as the other sizes of Intuos5 touch. 

For creative professionals such as photographers, designers and illustrators or anyone who desires professional results, the Intuos5 touch Medium Pen Tablet combines Wacom's most advanced pen technology with multi-touch functionality. Natural and intuitive to use, the tablet lets you alternate between using multi-touch gestures to position and navigate your artwork and the pressure-sensitive pen to sketch, paint, retouch, and edit.

  • newegg The Human Touch The addition of Multi-Touch to the Intuos5 gives you an alternate input method. It's natural to use and the perfect complement to the pen in your creative process. Totally immerse yourself in your creative work as you use one hand to pan, zoom and rotate your canvas, and then use your pen to precisely create your work. Plus, the finger-sensitive Multi-Function Touch Ring provides you with control of up to four-user defined functions such as scrolling, zooming, brush size, canvas rotation and more.
  • newegg Keep Your Eyes On Your Work With the Intuos5 ExpressKeys, you will work smarter, not harder. Use the default short cuts already set to the ExpressKeys, or set your own application specific shortcuts. If you ever need a reminder of an ExpressKey function, lightly rest your finger on the capacitive ExpressKey, and see an instant, on-screen reminder of the key’s function.
  • newegg Wireless Capability Intuos5 brings natural pen control to your PC or Mac through a single USB connection. If you prefer, any size Intuos5 tablet can be easily converted to an RF wireless connection with the Wacom Wireless Accessory Kit (sold separately at Wacom’s online store). (Availability in Latin America varies depending on country.)
  • newegg Professional Pen Performance with Wacom Tip Sensor In order to simulate traditional pens, markers and brushes, the Intuos5 Grip Pen features 2048 levels of pen pressure sensitivity as well as pen tilt recognition. Featuring Wacom’s innovative pen tip sensor, Intuos5 captures the slightest nuance of pen pressure starting with only a single gram of pressure. With every stroke, Intuos captures even the most subtle nuances of pressure, giving you the creative power to dynamically adjust exposure, brush size, line weight, opacity and more by pressing harder or softer with the pen.
  • newegg Modern Ergonomic Design The innovative design of Intuos5 features soft-touch, matte-black finish with illuminated accents. The ergonomic design allows you to flip the Intuos5 tablets in either direction to suit left-handed or left- or right-handed use. Available in three wide-format sizes, small, medium and large, you can choose the perfect size to fit your specific working style and workflow needs.
  • newegg Convenience The lightweight pen stand not only provides a convenient pen holder, but also functions as a handy twist-off storage compartment for pen nibs and handy nib removal tool. Standard, felt, stroke and flex nibs ship with the Intuos5, allowing you to simulate working with a variety of traditional art and design materials.

4 out of 5 eggsIndustry standard, but expensive

Pros: Excellent sensitivity, touch functionality makes a mouse functionally unnecessary, customizable hotkeys, unobtrusive software

Cons: Multi-touch gestures aren't all that sensitive, tablet itself is huge (but this may be for ergonomic reasons), wireless kit not included, expensive

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from a smaller, generic tablet. This is a world of difference. The inclusion of touch functionality has changed the way I work- now, while working on a big photo retouching job in Photoshop, I never need to go back to the mouse. I can zoom, rotate, pan, and change tools right from the tablet, which is much more efficient.

Downsides- despite the relatively small drawing area, the footprint of the tablet is massive. It dwarfs my 13" Ultrabook. I'm guessing that this is for ergonomic reasons, as running off the edge of your work surface can be quite unpleasant. Also, for the price, throwing in the wireless kit would have been a nice gesture. Finally, while a great feature- the sensitivity of the multi-touch functionality doesn't compare with, say, a touchpad or touchscreen. It's a little slow to respond, but still better than reaching for the mouse or keyboard.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Tablet is quite large despite being referred to as "Medium", having nearly the same diagonal as a standard 15.6" laptop.
The device is quite easy to customize although the default settings are quite asinine. I do not understand how they expect anyone to use the Ctrl/Shift/Alt default buttons in conjunction with a keyboard (so that they would actually do something) with such a large device. I might as well just use the keyboard instead. It works better. Do they think I am rich enough to afford a third arm? What an absurd presumption. Next thing I know they'll want me to use a desk.

Cons: Despite Wacom touting their products as "Made for Windows 8", the support is laughable at best. To turn some features off, such as the ripple that occurs when left clicking with the pen, their forum reps suggest you perform a registry hack.
The IME Pad has a sort of "delay" when drawing each stroke which requires you to draw a stroke for a certain distance before the stroke actually shows up.
Many other problems with their drivers for Windows 8 are noted on their forums.
This is with the newest 6.3.6-w3 drivers, meaning it's been 8 months since Windows 8's release and they've yet to fix these problems.

Other Thoughts: Using graphics tablets on Linux is worse. No surprises there.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat product spoiled by overdesign

Pros: Still works as well as the Wacom tablet of 10 years ago. There is no good substitute--unfortunately.

Cons: The sensitive area is less than 9 x 5.5, so why has the tablet grown to 15 x 10? How am I supposed to put this monster on my desk? I have to rest the thing on my knees. The old original Wacom was a neat, trim accessory.

Function buttons are all black, so I can't see where they are, let alone what they do. The tablet now doubles as a touch screen, recognizing numerous finger gestures--which I cannot make while holding the pen.

Other Thoughts: The CD-ROM has files on it, but my installer insisted on downloading a new manual. Installation did not give me an option to create a shortcut for the essential Properties dialog box. This seems to be still a very Mac-oriented product.

Leave off all the redundant extra features, scrap the prentious packaging, and reduce the physical size to that of the old original tablet, and it would be a great product, as it used to be.

5 out of 5 eggsProductivity increased x10

Pros: Coming from a bamboo, I feel I could do a ton more with this. I'm currently using a Samsung 29" inch 2560x1440 display and this fits the screen perfectly. Comes with a nice bunch of free software to use with this tablet and just using this with Adobe photoshop CS6 (a few minutes ago) I already see increased productivity when it comes to editing photos and rendering artwork (since I'm an artist myself) but the best part is, is the touch feature, where you can rotate/shrink/enlarge/drag an image on screen by just using your fingers on the tablet itself. and it's pretty nifty to say the least and it does take a slight learning curve to get use to this. Bare in mind this is not for the impatient types and yet it's very easy to learn to get use to. I was about to get the "large" version since I'm using a big screen but I'm glad I stuck to the medium.

Cons: learning curve could be of a problem to some people but if you already have a lot of experience using a mouse to edit photos or render artwork, on photoshop or illustrator, for example, you'll quickly see how fast you can finish your work with these tablets. other than that I don't see any other "cons".

Other Thoughts: If you're a beginner when it comes to graphic tablets, you are better off using the lower end models like the Bamboo splash or even the create and capture. 1) you'll save a lot of money and 2) those models are the basics and the learning curve is not as difficult as it would be for the Intuos 5 tablets, but that's just my opinion. The sensitivity, fluidity, and quality of this tablet is superb and well designed. Once you go Wacom theirs no going back I should say. and lastly it's worth the money if you need one of the best graphics tablets around, I'm happy I went with this.

5 out of 5 eggsNEAT!

Pros: -Fully customizable button assignments
-Excellent multiscreen support: If configured tablet to use on one screen you can switch to next screen with "display toggle" button, it's pre-configured on one of tablet's buttons.
By default, the tablet's active area will be corresponding to all screens.
-"Precision mode" toggle: It will crop down into small 16:9 rectangle (my monitor's 16:9) and dim down surrounding it, taking in place where cursor is. The non-dimmed area will be corresponding to full active area on the tablet, making cursor more slower and precisely with tablet, great for pixel arts or trying to click on correct pixel... precisely.

There are lot more I would like to say! In short, it's high quality, lot of features. I'm glad I bought it!

Bundled softwares:
-Adobe® Photoshop® Elements 11
-Anime Studio® Debut 8
-Nik® Software Color Effects Pro™ 4 Select Edition

Cons: -Wireless kits sold separately
-The area outside white frame angles is not functional

Bundled TRIAL/FREEwares:
-Corel® Painter™ 12 (90-day trial)
-Autodesk® SketchBook® Express (free)

Other Thoughts: I was looking for an upgrade from my old Wacom Bamboo tablet and I've boiled down to Medium VS Large. I feel like going for Large because someone recommended size corresponding to screen: Medium for 23" or less and Large for over 23" and I have 27". Later I realized I should go for Medium, it saves me:
-Half weight from Large, more portability
-More battery life for wireless kit (9 hours for M VS 6 hours for L)
-$100 in pocket
-More spaces on desk, giving more spaces for my energy drinks... I drink next to expensive PC peripherals worth around $100 each with $350 Intuos5... Like a boss!

I'm glad I got Medium! It's probably the best standard size for most premium digital artists.

By the look at buttons, I thought they're touch-based but they're also have physical buttons inside. They'll feel click when you press it. If touch (not press) on one button briefly, the "help" info on screen will show up, it will guide you what each buttons will do. you can turn help info off when you know every buttons' actions. Very brilliant!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for Drawing

Pros: Bought this for my son who is in Art school. He's been very happy with it.

My son is using this both with his MacBook Pro laptop and Desktop PC.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Wacom seems to dominate the market for these type of devices. Price is a bit high, but worthwhile as an artists tool. Bought this particular model due to slightly larger size, but still small enough to fit in a laptop case.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: nice sensitivity, comfortable, large, stable software, highly customizable... works well overall

Cons: I can't think of any cons...

Other Thoughts: I bought this with the wireless accessory kit, so I can't speak for it without that, but with it, it's terrific. Very responsive, very comfortable and (for me) it holds a charge all day - certainly longer than I need it to.
I been using this with Z Brush, Mudbox, Photoshop and Mari for 2 months now and it works flawlessly with all those programs under Win 7 x64.

3 out of 5 eggsNot a professional product

Pros: It works nicely with WinXp...with I5 quadcore and 1600mhz ram. Works with older applications in touch mode. Customizable settings.

Cons: The USB connector is week and seems likely to fail at some point. The battery life for the battery for wireless connection is limited. I work up to 16 hours per day when it's crunch time. I cannot find extra batteries, except to buy the wireless accessory, and not independent battery charger. The only way to charge the battery is in the unit, plugging in the week usb plug.

Other Thoughts: I've seen many reviews stating the usb plug fails. This would be a great product, but for two terrible flaws. It breaks, and there is no external battery charger.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's very good

Pros: Nice tablet overall and very good quality. Get the Wireless/USB kit. The only thing better is the Cintiq 12WX ($999 or less) or much more expensive Cintiq 22/ 24 HD inch.

Cons: Nibs wear, pressure sensitivity could be better.
Downloading Bundle Software is okay. Could be updated to current products/ programs being sold.
They are watered down types, need to purchase regular mfgr program for getting best features.

Other Thoughts: I purchased mine with Price Matching at BBY as AMZN had it marked down prior to Thanksgiving for $188.
Yes! Brand New never been open box so I was very lucky to find it discounted on Am-a-Zon brought my Printout got Price Match, now the lowest I can find is $314.
