Wacom Intuos3 PTZ-630
- Great display, programmable buttons
- Nothing of note
A great solution for those that want a high-quality display tablet without a massive price tag.
Price$ 549.00 (AUD)
The Wacom Intuos3 graphic tablet straddles the line between enthusiasts using the Wacom Graphire3 and high-end professionals using Wacom Cintiq display tablets. The resolution of the Intuos3 is 5080 lines per inch both horizontally and vertically, and the tablet has excellent response, feel and accuracy.
The inclusion of programmable buttons on the tablet itself is a boon for anyone frustrated at having to move to the keyboard for common shortcut keys. The 6" x 8" tablets come with eight programmable keys--four each side--and two touch strips that perform scrolling and zooming tasks as well as allowing you to quickly change brush sizes. The buttons and touch strips are customisable on a global or application-by-application basis.
Other enhancements include a beautifully weighted and totally redesigned pen and base--finally you'll actually use the base, as it no longer falls over every time you knock it! There is also a range of tip styles. The felt tip gives a lovely tactile feel, whereas the inking nib has more travel, giving more control over pressure sensitivity. An optional wireless mouse at about $50 rounds out the package nicely.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
