Engadget Review

The Intuos5 gets high marks for its fresh design and on-screen reminders. We just wish the multitouch gestures were smoother.

If you're still clinging to an older Wacom model or feel the Intuos4 hasn't run its course, we don't think you'll regret splurging on a new model ... Well, at least you won't mind the expense after you get your hands on one, that's for sure.

Wacom’s newest Intuos has done what its predecessors could not, and I can’t wait to pick up one for myself. There are three things that compel me to put this tablet at the top of my gadget shopping list: design, software, and touch.

It’s a significant improvement over the previous Intuos4 tablets, as well as a suitable upgrade for those who feel limited by the less-expensive, less-capable Bamboo tablets Wacom makes for consumers.

Though it doesn't add any new graphics-specific capabilities over its predecessor, the Wacom Intuos5 input tablet remains a must-have for digital brushworkers.

The Intuos5 is an investment that will pay off many times over. Non-professionals may prefer the less-expensive Bamboo pen tablets, but if you want the best, the Intuos5 is as good as it gets, aside from a Wacom Cintiq pen display.

The newest Intuos 5 is simply the best graphics tablet on the market, improving on its already impressive predecessor in practically every way.

The Intuos5 is another great product from the kings of the tablet market. Except for a few weird gestures that don’t match up with Lion, the touch gesture features are a great addition.

It is a tablet that is easy to recommend especially if you have a tight workspace. Wacom has sold me on their touch supported professional tablet. I can't go back. Though, I can't recommend someone switching from the previous generation - Intuos4 - to this if they don't need the touch support.
