What he said.

About the pens: The Intuous4 is my first tablet and while the first one lasted maybe two or three weeks my second one lasted much longer. I'm still surprised how often i apply too much pressure, so it may be a matter of training the hand, too.
To be fair: I haven't had the opportunity to try a Intuous3 so I have no direct comparison.

I am not feeling comfortable with removing the cover sheeet of a 1 week new Intuos. Especially as this time it is sticked on all 4 sides.
Probably you destroy the sheet by crumpling or the doublesided tape will not remove complete.
And then I have no information if the other side works at all: If it is too slippery it will not work for me.

With the Intuos 3 you had the option to buy 2 different spare sheets. One normal and one friction.
Then you had the choice.

Wacom Tec Support is no help in this case.

I work on the tablet retouching and doing all the other computer stuff -
average max. 8 hours a day 5 days a week.
4-5 days working and the pen nib is completely flat.

If you want to have a nice pressure related toolsize - smooth gradient reacting - you can´t set the sensitivity that low.
At least it should work better with standard settings.

Wacom argues that in the surveys the artists wanted a more paperlike feeling. I believe that is true. But did they say, they would like to pay as much for spare nibs in 3 years as the payed fot the tablet? I doubt so.
