If you are looking for a new pen tablet for your photoshop work, Wacom Intuos4 Pen Tablet might not be a bad choice. It comes in small, medium, large, and extra large sizes. Depending on how big of a tablet you need, the Wacom Intuos4 Pen Tablets might be the perfect choice.
I did try out their previous versions and have to say these pen tablets are pretty good when it comes to quality and value for your money. Of course, there’s other great pen tablets out there at an extra arm and a leg but this probably is the best value.
While it doesn’t compare to the Cintiq in terms of functionality, it also doesn’t carry the hefty price tag. For $230 to $790, Intuos4 users get a pad that features 2,048 pressure levels (with a starting pressure of one gram) and a software bundle that includes Color Efex Pro and any two of the following programs: Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 for the PC (or Elements 6 for the Mac),
PC Magazine’s recent review call it,
…if you’re used to drawing with traditional art materials, such as chalk or watercolors, you’ll find that the combination of Intuos4 and Painter comes remarkably close to that experience.
I was so excited about the new Intuos4 that I got it as soon as I could, which was the very next day. They’ve fixed the few things that could use improvement from the Intuos3, like the od driver is way better and hasn’t crashed once even when I’ve really pushed it. Lookin good to me so far!
