Anyone using this yet? What's the price of this?
I was over at Funan last weekend and saw it at South Asia Computer prices as follows:
S - S$399
M - S$599
L - S$799
For those who are using tablet, is the smallest size good enough? I am thinking of portability. But then again, being portable but useless is no good as well. you thoughts?
Any users here of the Wacom Intuos 4?
I need your opinions, i plan to buy one.
size definately makes a big diff! If u use a big monitor u need a big pad. Otherwise it is quite hard to move yr hand to the screen area quickly.
I got the medium size one.
These are my impressions...
Technically, the medium size one does the job ok if you're running dual screens, but if you are running on two large 24" screens, then forget it. Get the large one or extra large one.
For those who are just starting out on a wacom, lock up your mouse and use the wacom for all mouse movements. It really would take a while to adjust to how does the wacom perform. You might experience initial hand sprains when you start using it but the more you use, the more you will get used to it.
I don't know what else to say except that the medium size one is portable enough. If you choose to buy the small one, I almost will guarantee you that you will sell it off in B&S and get the medium or the large one.
my recommendation... buy one that is proportional to your screen.
if you are using 4:3, then get a 4:3 type, if yours is 16:10, then get a 16:10 one. Or simply put, get wide one if its wide screen.
Then if you're using dual monitor, just set the tablet to 1 monitor, you still have your mouse. Most of the time, you won't be using both screen to draw together. So if you're using 2x 4:3 monitor, no point getting a wide one.
As for size of tablet, buy a tablet approximately 1/4 or 1/2 the size of the monitor. small screen lower res, bigger screen higher res, so does tablet. if you buy a tablet 1:1 with the monitor, you will tire yourself out very fast, unless you are using it for extreme precision, or for tracing large prints.

To what I know, all Intuos4 models are consider as wide format tablet that could suit all the LCD monitor sizes, the tablet active area (the center area that could response with pen) will be automatically map to the max. of screen display once you installed the tablet driver.
For portability, S or M model may fit into your notebook case together. Other than size, the different of S model is, it does not has the OLED Display (for quick ref. of your shortcut keys) beside the tablet buttons (they call them ExpressKeys actually). S model has total 6 buttons while the rest models has 8 buttons.
Understand from the sales staff, they recommend M model (about 6"x9") to those art student for their art courses.
i bought the S model. It's more than enough for photoshop editing. I hate the big ones, have to move all over the place. Small ones just have to move your wrist. i'm lazy that way.
You have bought the S model is due to portability or mobility reasons (from my advice)?
Besides 2048 pressure level, new touch ring feature is quite impressive and better than touch strip (Intuos3), the LED display for keys also looks great as I always forget what I had set on the shortcut..... will get rid of Intuos3 before upgrade to Intuos4.
