Which of these 3 tablets should I buy?

:iconx-angel0:
x-Angel0 Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012
Someone stole my tablet XD. And I need a new one, then, but I'm not sure which one to buy of these 3:

Intuos 4 - Small (This is the one I got stealed)
Intuos 5 - Small
Yiynova MSP19U

I'm not sure because:
Intuos 4 is the one I had, I loved to work with it.
Intuos 5 is newer, but not sure about the touch feature after reading some reviews.
Yiynova, because is the closest I can be of a Cintiq, although seeing it has a crystal surface bothers me a bit, but dunno if its worth trying.
Any recommendations?

I own an intuos5 small, previously had an intuos4 medium.

I received the intuos5 as a birthday present for it to be my traveling tablet.
Due to the space of my work area I sold the Intuos4 and have been using the Intuos5 for the past 2 months.

I find it more than appropriate for my needs.
I rest it on my laptop (Alienware M11X) keyboard and have customised the buttons for each program.

The Intuos5 has 6 buttons, with the addition of the scroll wheel.
For example, in Photoshop; I have the buttons programmed as:

B (Brush)
E (Eraser)
Ctrl + Alt + Z (Undo)
Ctrl (selecting stuff)
Shift (selecting stuff/straight line)
Spacebar (moving around the screen)

For the scroll wheel I have it programmed as:
Brush size
Zoom in/Zoom out

I have disabled the other two functions on the scroll wheel, it just skips them; thus only moving between brush size and zooming.

The touch feature can be turned off, I personally hate it and find it useless for my needs.

The only issue I have found to date is the wireless dongle loses reception every now and then; but I usually have it plugged in.

The work area is smaller to the Intus4 Small I believe.

A new Intuos5 Small with cost ~$300 AUD.

You can probably find it used on eBay for a cheaper price.

All the best.

Oh so you can turn off the touch thing!
hmmm but that would make it the same as an intuos 4?

Yes, but then you have the option of an Intuos5 if you wish.
An Intuos4 would be cheaper, and if you're use to it and liked it so much I don't see any fault in getting one.
IMO, if you used an Intuos4 and love it, either buy a new or used one online.

If you need help to customise the buttons/turn off touch, send me a PM and I'll make a video and post it on YouTube.
Cheers.

I can't suggest one cause I don't like tablets :P
It's to big to use as a phone and crappy to use as a PC. And you can't exactly stick it in your pocket :XD:
Sorry amiga ;)

OMG, stole!?? That's terrible... :(

My only experiences are with Intuos 4 and Bamboo fun... I'd say go with what you know, the other mught turn out to be a disappointment.... so my vote goes to Intuos 4. :)

Yup, I just get out of my car to buy a pizza, and when I returned, there was no more tablet u.u, I think they thought it was a laptop.
I'm mostly going with that one, but I want to hear more feedback before I buy ^^

OMG... :(
At least they didn't steal the car itself, and you're ok. Be careful... :(
And hope other people will be more helpful~ :D

I could be wrong as I just failed miserably at finding it on amazon, but I thought that there was a version of the intuos5 without the touch features?

Just looked on wacoms site. They do do a pen only version, but only for the medium sized one I think. It's on amazon UK but I couldn't find it on the US version which was a bit odd. :S

@.@ I guess I'll end up with the 5, since the touch thing can be turned off, but dunno if its worth it still.
