Re: An affordable tablet that ages better than Int

I have my intuos 2. I've used it for at least 8 years, averaging 4-5 hours per day over that time. I use it for all my computer use, never use the mouse. I'm knocking on wood right now but my experience with this product has sold me on Wacom. I have also hauled this thing back and forth across the world with no box, loose in a suitcase, etc., dropped it many times, jerked it out by the cord(by accident), etc.

I can remember when it ran off a serial connection. I was too young to buy my own tablet in 1989. Also I have no idea what they would've cost back then.

I have an intuos4 and realized a severe pen-nib wear in the beginning.
But that went away with the surface getting smoother by use.
So after 2 years, I used up like 10 pen nibs. That is 10 Euros per 2 years.
That is not what I would call a problem...

So I would definately buy an Intuos4 again.
