WACOM Bamboo Connect and Intuos4 Professional Pen Tablet Review

WACOM Bamboo Connect Tablet

WACOM Bamboo Connect Tablet is pretty decent and basic drawing tablet. It’s good of basic sketch work or simple collaboration.

It is pretty slim, light weight and black colored having glossy plastic bar. Active screen area is 5.8x3.6 inches. It comes with detachable USB power cord. It doesn’t have any wireless option. Its setup and installation is very easy and simple.

Customization of various settings and fine tuning those functions like sensitivity, speed and all are pretty simple. It also comes with some premium software like Corel Painter Essentials. Again although using it is simple but new users can find it little challenging.

WACOM Bamboo Connect Tablet is not that much sensitive as other models, it detects 1024 level of pressure while others operate on twice of this pressure. It supports pen input. Its stylus does include digital eraser. It works completely flawless on both Windows and Mac. Sometimes it gives some translation issues but it’s not too often.

WACOM Intuos4 Professional Pen Tablet

Good For Photo Editing

WACOM Intuos4 Professional Pen Tablet comes in grey and blue color scheme which makes it less professional with respect to its previous models. Package includes the device, USB cable, Pen Holder and driver CD. Its active screen area is of 8.8x5.5 inches. The tablet has two USB ports.

Installation process is quite simple, just insert disc and follow the instructions. After installation you can go to Wacom’s site and choose premium design software to download type of software availability depends upon the region.

Using it is very easy with respect to others, the 8 express keys are easy to activate, its needs vry little pressure to work. The new touch ring key function is quite amazing; it helps you to remember which function you have programmed on the touch ring. A new user will find it more complicated, it will take some time getting used to. More practice will make you more experienced in using it.

If you want a tablet just for photo editing and basic drawing you might not find it more useful. But if you need a tablet for professional purpose no other choice can be better than WACOM Intuos 4 Professional Pen Tablet.

sandyspider, Thank you for the explanations! It's so true that functionality and significance vary with the person, but which two of the software programs would you choose for the Intuoso4 Professional Pen Tablet package?

Tolovaj, I should have mentioned in here that I was given a Wacom's tablet for Christmas. I do agree with getting use to the coordination thing.

Tolovaj on 05/23/2012

I had a pleasure to check one of Wacom's graphic tablets and I can say it takes some time to get adjusted to work directly 'in computer', because eye and hand coordination is different than at 'on paper' method.
But when you get accustomed, you will enjoy every minute!
