5 out of 5 eggsGreat product!

Pros: As a photographer I have used just about every method of digitizing from tablet pc, artboard displays, to many different pen tablets and I must say the Wacom Intuos CTH480 has been my favorite method.
It is small enough to be portable, and big enough that you don't feel confined when drawing.
Having a ton of configuration it a huge plus.
The sturdy construction and sleek design is very nice.

I would recommend this device to any professional or beginner.

Cons: NONE!

Other Thoughts: I will be buying the wireless module to see how well it works.

3 out of 5 eggsNot desktop friendly, but gets the job done

Pros: Solid construction, though the pen feels rather cheap and the rough, matte-finish drawing surface starts to scuff almost immediately. The simple black and silver design is nice and clean compared to my old curvy, purple and tan Intuos 2.

Easy to install and set up.

Cons: The multi-touch gestures are neat but essentially useless as you'll accidentally trip them while moving your hand or flipping the pen over to erase. I ended up disabling almost all of them after a day of inadvertently drawing specks everywhere, flipping the canvas around randomly, and slinging all my windows around the desktop. Likewise, the ExpressKeys are cool and work well enough, but I find it easier to just use my keyboard.

The tablet seems slow to recognize the eraser. I'll flip the stylus over to erase and if I move too quickly, the tools won't change and I end up drawing all over instead of erasing. I've started just using the keyboard shortcut to change tools, which makes the drawing experience slightly less fluid.

The usb cable is only 3 ft long. I had to use an extension cord to get it to reach the back of my tower.

No software bundles when ordering through Newegg.

Other Thoughts: I got this tablet as a cheap stopgap purchase after my Intuos 2 finally bit the dust and I was sad to see that while many of the specs are similar to the old high-end Wacoms (this tablet had the same levels of sensitivity and the same drivers for customization as my old tablet), there is a noticeable difference in quality between the two families of tablets. Not sure why they decided to re-brand their entry-level / travel tablets under the Intuos name because in practice they don't really compare.

The cons probably aren't that big a deal if you're not looking to do serious professional work on it 8 hours a day or you're just looking to do some light work on the go. The new Intuos line is obviously designed for traveling first and foremost and while it seems like it's probably pretty great at that, if you're looking for something cheap to use for your desktop drawing/design setup you may find yourself feeling like you're working around the tablet rather than with it. My next purchase will either be something from Wacom's "Pro" line or from another company altogether.

5 out of 5 eggsfor OSU

Pros: Plays OSU up to my standards.

Cons: Small, but I only use a small portion of the pad anyways.

Other Thoughts: It works great and I am able to perform better in OSU than with a mouse.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than using a tablet

Pros: I was hesitant at first about getting this table because of how awkward it would be to not directly see what your doin, but once you get used to it its not too bad.

Cons: Very short cable unless your using a laptop, or you have your desktop on the side you use the pen with its not gonna happen. I don't know if its a driver conflict or software but for some reason when I have the tablet plugged in and I turn on my computer my mouse and keyboard become non responsive and start putting on a light show oh I didn't mention that there both steeleries products so the tablet might not play nice with the steelseries engine software.

Other Thoughts: Buy the wireless kit, or a long usb extension cable
