This review is from: Wacom Intuos Pro PTH651 8.8" x 5.5" Active Area USB Pen and Touch Medium
Pros: Drivers did not conflict with my Cintiq, and showed up in the same settings window so I could easily copy button settings to my Intuos
Plenty of buttons and customization options across Express Keys, the Radial Menu, and the Touch feature
No lag, both when wired or wireless
Perfect size to rest either on my desk or in my lap
Not too heavy and didn't run hot like some tablets with displays
Cons: If you rest your fingers on the express keys, there is a sensor that detects this which causes a display to appear on your screen to show you which button your finger is on. This is useful if you are expecting it, however if you are simply holding your hand in that area to stabilize the tablet (with it resting in your lap), this menu will inadvertently display which can be distracting. I didn't get around to seeing if there was a way to disable that display because of the larger issue at hand: drawing surface is FAR too rough.
The drawing surface has a texture similar to a hard, rubbery office desk, which is aesthetically fine by me. However, it is like sandpaper on my nibs. Over an 8-10 hour session of digital sculpting, my nib was completely ground down to a point. I found a forum where other users expressed their frustration and suggested taping some high-quality printing paper over the drawing area to reduce friction.
I tried with a regular sheet of paper that I had available but it didn't do much good. My second nib started wearing just as fast.
Considering that drawing/sculpting is the #1 thing I purchased this tablet for, I think it's unacceptable for the surface to wear away on the nibs at such an incredible rate. I also own a Cintiq, and in the four years I've owned it, I haven't even come close to replacing the original nib that came with its stylus.
Other Thoughts: If you are still inclined to get this, I would try the printer paper thing or some other smooth surface overlay, or be prepared to burn through tons of nibs.
