Well the jury is still out on it. So far, as far as using it for Photoshop, I am sorta of liking it when using Polygonal Lasso tool.

It's gonna take some time getting used to it.

Anyone else use this or a similar tool?

They do take getting used to. I have an older Intuit 6x9 pad. Intuit II, I think. Anyway....put away your mouse for 2 weeks and only use the keyboard and pad for EVERYTHING. It's a quick way to familiarize yourself with the pad. Good Luck

I have an older Wacom tablet CTE-640 and can't imagine editing without it. First day I could not work with it at all and wanted to throw it away. The second day suddenly it worked. Maybe you will have a similar experience. Hang in there its worth it. Some things you can't really do with a mouse.

I have one too and though I dont use it often its a great thing to have. It DOES take a little getting used to but once you get the hang of it you will love it.

Don't laugh at me because I still use a mouse. I want very much to move up. I haven't been able to budget a pen set-up. I'm really interested in hearing the input for refrence in my future purchase plan.

I used a Intuos3 9x12 pad for a while but it's just too big for my comfort level. Thinking about the Intuos4 medium (6x9) but it's not in the budget anytime soon.

Steve, if you want to try a bigger pad, I'll ship it to you. Mouse, pen, tablet. Latest software is available online. Everything works. If you like it, mail me a $100 check. If not, ship it back.

I love mine. I don't use it for everything, but nothing beats it for masking, painting, and cloning.

I am liking it for the lasso then feathering tools, but you have to be careful. There is nothing worse then Polygonal lassoing something mid way then accidentally double tapping the pad and pre selecting it.
