Product Description

Wacom's Penabled? technology gives you the natural feel and superior performance of Wacom's patented cordless and battery-free tablet technology. You'll find that using an Intuos pen, mouse, and tablet gives you more control, comfort, and productivity. Alternating between the comfortable Grip Pen and the ergonomic five-button Intuos3 mouse reduces repetitive motion. It's an easy and natural way to work. It's easy to use a pen tablet because every point on the tablet has a matching point on the screen. When you move your pen over the tablet the cursor moves in precisely the same way on the screen. Where you touch your pen tip to the tablet is where you click.

Features:
  • Ergonomic design with sloping, contoured palm rest for comfort
  • Multiple cord positions for greater workspace flexibility
  • 8-foot cable allows you to kick back while you work
  • Enhanced electronics for twice the resolution (5,080 lpi)
  • Grip pen offers 1024 levels of tip and eraser pressure sensitivity for ultimate control

Customer Reviews:

  • Great tablet
    It was everything we were hoping that it would be. It's not too big, not too small, and my wife loves it. ...more info
  • Wrong proportions
    This tablet is as good as other Wacom products (very good) but the 6x11 size matches no screen resolution I can find. And also doesn't match any two screen side-by-side resolution. The closest resolution to it's proportions would be 1920x1080, the resolution for 1080 HD video (the tablet's proportions would scale to 1920x1047) but monitors don't come in that size. Using my 1920x1200 monitor I have to portion off 1.4 inches of the tablets live area to work at 1:1. So I'm really using the tablet at 6x9.6 inches. a screen resolution of 1440x900 or 1680x1050 would have the same issue. I'm puzzled at the choice. ...more info
  • Perfect product, some issues
    Finally decided to write a review about my Wacom. This is the second Wacom tablet I have owned, a massive upgrade from a 4x5 graphire 2. The only thing I would want over this tablet is the cintiq, but economically speaking this is the best money I have ever spent.

    Okay so onto the review. With its added sensitivity and large drawing area, the cramped wrist flicks of my old tablet have turned into graceful, gestural lines. Painting on my tablet is much easier and I don't need to scan in sketches as often as I feel much more confident drawing with my tablet now. The biggest improvement beside the widescreen scaling are the buttons on either side of the drawing area... considered useless to some I have found them to be invaluable. I have been using photoshop long enough to have many keyboard shortcuts down, the ability to change these buttons to any combination of shortcuts is amazing. I have the touchstrip on the left set to zoom in and out, the touchstrip on the right increases or decreases the size of my brushes. Step backwards(undo), eyedropper, free-transform, new layer, merge layer, hand tool, constrain, etc... are just some of the other shortcuts I have programmed into the hotkeys. The only time I have to touch the keyboard is to switch between fullscreen mode and standard mode, oh and adding type.

    The extra software may be nice if you use it, I have yet to find any use though. The nibs might be helpful as well but I stick with the basic platic nib... I still occasionally tape down a piece of paper on top of the drawing area to get a more natural feel, plastic on plastic feels strange to draw with in my opinion. If you are looking to get a new tablet or get into graphic design I would recommend this hands down. I watched prices on amazon for a few months, (the lowest price anywhere I could find this product sold) and managed to get it at about 300$. It fluctuates between 300$ and 370$ so be smart about it and you can save yourself some cash by being patient.

    Now onto the complaints.
    The reason I still give this 5 stars is because I am unsure if this is a problem for everyone or just my setup. This works PERFECT on my desktop computer running windows xp, however with vista on my laptop I am having constant and consistent problems. The tablet worked on occasion with the drivers sent with my tablet, the updated drivers from the wacom site fixed 95% of the problems where vista and its tablet drivers would argue with my wacom drivers. However, I still get loss of pen pressure, tracking, and hotkey problems when certain things happen in photoshop... basically my computer drops my wacom drivers and I have to restart to get them back. Considering I use the tablet almost every day this can be very annoying. However if you learn to work around these problems, ie: be careful about starting any media program like mediaplayer or itunes while using your tablet with photoshop. This is why I feel it is a vista issue, as long as you start windows, plug in your tablet, start your music programs, then start photoshop/illustrator/etc... in that order I can use my tablet for days without an issue. Plugging in your tablet after starting photoshop will cause plenty of problems like loss of layer opacity and whatnot.

    The product itself is flawless in my opinion, the drivers and software you will have to deal with will be your biggest problem, but if you don't mind them or stick with xp or maybe a Mac you should be fine like wine.

  • Great tablet - 4.6 stars
    Why 4.6 stars? Because this is an almost perfect tablet.

    I'm a graphic designer, and I LOVE the proportional match to my monitor! Finally! That's easily it's best feature. The precision is also great, as expected. I think I even like the pen better than my older Wacom 6 x 9 tablet.

    The driver software is also as stable and easy to use as it's ever been.

    The minus 0.4 stars comes from the modifiers on the sides. And I'll admit that part of it is because of how I've got it set up, but I'm often accidentally pressing on the modifiers as I'm using the keyboard, which I have directly above the tablet. So I've had to disable the buttons for normal use for now. Also, I'd love it if they arranged the modifiers in a similar pattern to the Shift, Control, Option, Command keys, since I'm so used to using that particular location pattern. It's almost easier to keep using the keyboard.

    Overall, it's a minor issue to what is otherwise an excellent product. Whether you're a designer or illustrator, this is the tablet to get.

    I should also mention that I have used the Wacom Centiq before. In comparison, this tablet has been the next best experience to that because of the matching proportions. In some ways, I even prefer this tablet, but I'd attribute that to personal preference....more info
  • Intuos3 ...Great Tablet!
    I do a lot of work in Photoshop and thought this would be a useful tool in photo retouching. It was!! I've owned tablets years ago, but boy have they com a long way. This is a great tablet and full of the features that I can use. I wish I got one of these sooner. It was very easy to set-up, pretty much plug & play, allows for you to program buttons, touch & feel to your liking quick. I also found it's the best tool for creating storyboards and even editing video! The price is right too. I purchased mine from J&R Music World (through Amazon)and it was at my door 2 days after the purchase.
    Get one...you won't be sorry....more info

  • Wacom 6X11 Tablet
    Oh man, this thing is amazing! I can't believe I've made it this far in my career as a photographer, and graphic designer without the wacom pad. This device is so precise and easy to use. I would never classify this as a toy, it's a professional device that works. The construction is good, and the device is even a little sexy. The 6X11 pad has 8 buttons & two sliders on the pad itself that you can program yourself. The sliders can be used as buttons, instead of sliders if you choose. The pen has two programmable buttons. If your a PC user and thinking about this device, and a logitec nulooq, then buy the tablet, and skip the nulooq. The tablet has more controls available then the nulooq ever could, and the wacom never glitches out like the Nulooq. My dog is currently chewing on my new nulooq in the backyard. It's a great chew toy, but should not be used on a computer.

  • Wrist aid
    The wacom tablet has helped slow down my carpal tunnel in my wrists. It is a great alternative for a graphic designer to use instead of a mouse for that reason as well as more precise actions in drawing vector art.
    I have noticed that the tablet itself can be scratched fairly easily, but other than that, it is a good buy....more info
  • best tablet for photographers
    Having the Wacom has increased my speed and efficiency in editing pictures. It is the best investment I have made lately in my business. It saves my wrist from carpal tunnel and other over-use/strain problems related with high mouse useage. I can be much more precise on my work in photoshop! I would recommend this as a tool to add to any photographers "must have list"....more info
  • Great for Web Design / Graphic artists!
    The Wacom tablet is just great! At the beginning I was having some kind of difficulties coordinating the movements of my hand and just looking into the monitor, but pretty soon I started to know how to use it better and now I do more things with it than with the normal mouse.

    I'm working on two monitors at the same time and it's just great that the included software lets you decide you want th tablet to cover so in case you want to use only on a program or screen, that will be easy to accomplish!

  • a good tool to have for drawing
    The wacom tablet is a useful tool. I enjoy working with it since it helps reduce the wrist movements I get from the mouse.

    There is only one problem with it is that sometimes it fights with the programs, such as adobe Photoshop. The tablet will start zooming in and out all on its own. I don't think the tablet is broken because the situation is easily fixed once I unplug and re plug the tablet back in.

    The good thing about the tablet is that it's easy to draw with. There is a slight learning curve so don't give up. It takes time to judge the strength of the pressure points.

    If you enjoy illustrating this is a useful tool. Also the size is helpful. When I draw on a peace of paper and then place the drawing on the tablet I can trace over the top of the drawing and it looks identical. It's really a time saver, when it comes to drawing. For normal office work it's nice but not necessary, unless you spend vast amounts of time on the computer I highly recommend buying one.

  • Worth Every Dollar
    I have one at work and home. Favorite feature using the pen tool: turn it around, and it erases like a real pencil. Must have for heavy photoshop users. ...more info
  • I love it more than my mother!
    Haha, just kidding mom. ;)

    On a serious note the wacome is an essential addition to any photo, graphic, or video professional. I do all three and this tablet has expanded my capabilities greatly. Using a pen is so much more natural than a mouse, thus you will be getting retouching done faster than before. It also has the pressure sensitivity which allows you to dynamically resize your brush even within a stroke.

    The 6x11 size is defiantly sufficient for my needs, but make sure you get wide screen tablet if you have a widescreen monitor. Works together all the better.

    You cant go wrong here... The only decision is if you would want the bluetooth version, and unless you want to burn through batteries get the corded.. It comes with a verry long usb cable so ive never had any problems. ...more info
  • Great solution to the Keyboard Tablet Shuffle,
    I wanted to mention several things in this review to help people out not generally covered in other reviews. One of which is that I'm left handed, and have drawn digitally with a mouse for over 10 years now. I am not unfamiliar with tablets, but perhaps I can give a unique perspective as I've now used all three versions of the intuos line. 1, 2 and 3.

    I'm left handed and with products made with right handers in mind I used to digitally illustrate my pictures with a combination of keyboard shortcuts and using the mouse with my wrong hand.

    This is really a good sized tablet for the intermediate or professional illustrator. The smaller 4x5 is a bit flawed in its design due to the fact that was designed more with the right handed person in mind.

    Onto the 6x8 - In the years Wacom has produced 3 models I say that the 3 is the greatest improvement overall. It's closest rival is the original Intuos (1). The intuos 3 has a pen grip similar to the 1 but made more comfortable with the rubber grip. This is a vast improvement over the 2 make because the duo switch kept falling off and its fatter pen made it more difficult to handle strokes.

    The other major improvement is the express keys. Users familiar with the older intuos may have found that menu bar obnoxious unhelpful and annoying. Now the express keys solves what I mentioned in my title. As a user who is used to keyboard shortcuts, I found the biggest hinderance for me was losing my drawing groove as I switched from the keyboard to the tablet because I knew the shortcut key than dragging my pen over to get it to respond.

    For example with Photoshop, many of us are familiar with Undo/Step Backward and Redo/Step Forward. Instead of interrupting your drawing and having to reach for the keyboard, the tablet has a driver that allows you to program your express keys. You can now do this on the fly with less hassle.

    Touch strip annoying you because of your dominant hand? You can disable it too. You get 8 buttons on this model so you'll find a way to chose your settings instead of reaching for a keyboard.

    Another interesting feature of the express keys is the PRESSURE HOLD. This is a great function since I know many times as an illustrator I've wanted to recreate a stroke at a certain pressure and it doesn't come out quite close as the first. By using pressure hold you can keep a consistent pressured stroke.

    Intuos 3 comes with some new nibs that you can use with your pen. I've found the ink/stroke nib it came with very nice and close to how I ink traditionally and I'd definitely recommend that to any illustrator who deals with inking. The brush nib I'm not so sure how to review since painting traditionally isn't something I do as regularly, but I'm grateful Wacom included this with their new line.

    Wacom's sleek redesign of the intuos is definitely GEEK BLING. I love the feel and how comfortable it feels while I work on artwork.

    One thing you may worry about is that the new line doesn't have an overlay sheet as its predecessors, fear not however, if you scratch it there are replacement parts. Wacom also has great customer service for the tablet. So your money is very well spent.

    The only other thing I'd like to mention is that you should download the latest driver from the site instead of the driver that came with your software.

    For the software, while basic, I found that the videos that came with the Painter Essentials 3 DVD bundle to be rather helpful. This is really good for people who feel overwhelmed by painter because it covers basics and makes it easier to realize how versatile the program is.

    I'm very happy I invested into this product especially since the intuos 3 now solves problems I had when adjusting to digital illustration....more info
  • Almost perfect
    This is the second Wacom tablet I own and the third tablet in general. The other wacom is the 9 x 12. Which, at the time, I thought was the greatest. And the Hyperpen (my first tablet for a starving artist)... well, don't. Don't buy it. Stay away. Horrid thing. Save up and get a small wacom.

    With the purchase of my 6 x 11 i realized that it just feels right. The size is not so large it becomes unmanageable but big enough to use with my dual 19 inch monitors. And, with proportional aspect ratio on it does not waste a lot of the tablet area.

    The touch stripes are useful but really not necessary. Only with it sitting in your lap pushed back from the keyboard does it really offer any usability.

    The 6 x 11 is just about perfect....more info
  • Awesome tool
    Using it with Vista, and it has worked perfectly. Took a bit to find and enable all the Features of Vista that can use a tablet, but everything works extremely well.
    I was also very pleasantly surprised to find it included Photoshop Elements 6.0 -- was not expecting the latest version! And this tablet is absolutely awesome for photo editing (the primary reason I bought it in the first place). I find myself doing significantly more complex corrections now, and enhancing more photos in general too, just because it is now so easy to do!
    Highly recommended, very accurate and capable, and the bundled software is remarkably high quality too; definitely a value add unless you already have Photoshop CS3 and/or the full strength Corel Painter X. And if you don't have those, but want them, it includes savings coupons for both Photoshop CS3 and Painter X - with savings totalling more than what you pay for the tablet!...more info
  • Wacom is just the best
    This is a great product and company. The install was free of problems and the tutorial on the CD got me up to speed in a couple of minutes....more info
  • Great product small gripe
    I love this wacom 6x11, used on a pc with dual monitors and ps3 and painter. The only gripe I have is the slider quick button to the top left and right of the tablet area. My arm rests in that area when I draw so I start zooming in and out like crazy when my forearm touches the slider bar which is a pain at times. Other than that maybe a way to prop up the tablet would be cool, I'm using erasers right now. Sleek design and very lite. The pen has a great balance to it and fits very comfortable in your hand for those allnighters. Wireless would be great but not sure about response on a 500mg file. I would upgrade to a larger one maybe if I had the extra money but this size is great....more info
  • Hand/arm/wrist problems - Wacom is the way to go!!!
    I have problems and pain in my wrists, forearms, hands & shoulders. I've also had a couple of unsuccessful operations done... I'v tried using different kinds of mouse devices, after carefully considering them using the reviews found on amazon and LOADS of other sites.

    Most reviews doesn't necessarily address use of device with/for people with hand problems. After wasting loads of money on all kinds of devices, I decided to buy the Wacom Intous3 6x11". I can truly say that my editing work in Photoshop CS3 and just general tasks perfomed in and around Windows is one GREAT pleasure!

    The quality and built of this product is top notch! The buttons are programmable for different programs, as are the slide strips! I've programmed them all for the most often used commands in Photoshop and absolutely LOVE it. Saving me lots of time and effort. The active area can also be decided which is great. Rather have the BIG one and redifine the active area for a 'smaller' tablet... for a specific program bla bla bla.

    So if you are suffering from Carpal tunnel or De Quervain's disease (my specific problem), or I think ANY other pain in your arms/shoulders/elbows, this is definitely the way to go! Do remember though to take ENOUGH rest breaks in between. I bought a software program that stops you every now and then to take proper rest breaks, and ALSO give you some stretches to do!

    Take GREAT care of your hands! They are the ONLY pair that you'll EVER have!!! And get a program as I've mentioned above even if you DON'T have any problems. PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE... (ask me...)

  • Best investment for the money
    I have been thinking of purchasing this for a long time and finally got around to it. Being a designer and having a girlfriend who is a fashion designer, this has been the biggest boost to our productivity in a long time. Its easy to use and very natural in terms of feel and abilities.

    I recommend this for anyone who is artistically inclined, its not a replacement for traditional media but opens a whole new world when it comes to design and art. My only issue with the tablet is that I do most of my work on a 15" Powerbook, and this tablet is definitely made for large screens like a 24" or larger LCD monitor.

    In all this is an amazing buy. Well worth the money and then some. I highly recommend it....more info
  • Wacom is indifferent to customer
    Sent a complaint that the serial number to Painter Essentials would not permit installation.
    Wacom requested the following

    WACOM: "I would like to provide you with new serial numbers.

This assures that you will receive the correct serial numbers for your software version.

  • A great buy
    The intuos3 6x11 tablet is nice because its like having a giant mouse pad. The mouse itself has five buttons that can be programed to do different tasks, opening programs is one of them. It also has a scroll wheel. On the pad there are more buttons that can open programs among other things. Also there are touch sensitive strips on the tablet that can be used for scrolling. I use the pen inside of art progams and it is a real joy to work with. The pressure sensitivity is is a very nice feature alowing you to go from a thin line to a thick line and vice versa. Its main high point for me is the ability it gives to draw curved lines and detailed lines. It fits nicely in hand and has comfortable rubber grip. Also you can flip the pen over and use that side as an eraser. The only complaint I have is that on the pen there are two buttons and one of them (the lower one) is placed in a spot where when I'm drawing my finger frequently hits it, because of this I simply had to make the button inactive. Over all I feel that Wacom has done a very good job of developing this product. I feel that it is of high quality and well worth the price. I would definetly save up the extra few dollars to get this larger tablet, it is nice to have if you have the desk space. I've heard Wacom is the best in the pen tablet industry and now that I own one I believe it....more info
  • Simply indespensable
    If you are a Graphic Artist or work with images at virtually any level you simply cannot be with out a Wacom tablet. It is one of the few items that will immediately increase the quality of your work almost as soon as it is opened up. It takes a few hours to really get the hang of it but once you do you will wonder how you ever worked with out one.

    Get the biggest one you can and use a smaller one's (6" or smaller) as a carry along for your laptop....more info

  • Pretty good
    Much more ergonomic than using a mouse. My wrist doesn't get sore. You can also program the buttons on the pen and tablet for functions or Mac Expose functions that you use often.

    Takes some getting used to though. When I'm using Adobe Illustrator, for example, it's hard not to move an object when I just want to select it. I guess this will come with time though. I've only had it for a few weeks.

    Last, I wouldn't get anything bigger than this size. The bigger the size the more your arm needs to move around. I have the surface area setup to not use the whole tablet area.

    I'd buy it again!...more info
  • Great tablet for widescreen
    This is the second tablet I've ever owned, the first being an old Pablo tablet. The Pablo left me with a bad taste in my mouth for tablets in general, but I decided to give this a chance since Wacom has been around forever and Pablo has gone the way of the Dodo.

    I just finished my first drawing class in college and wanted to translate those skills to the pc. It was a very natural transition for me, although there was an issue at first. This is a 'wide' tablet and my screen is a widescreen, the pixel ratio between the two weren't exactly the same, so circles drawn on the tablet turned into slight ovals on screen. This is an easy fix in the wacom settings app. After making the change, there is now about a 0.5" vertical strip on the left of the tablet that is unusable now (it's 'off screen'). This seems like a problem, but it really isn't and you won't notice it if you need to do this (you could always use it as an excuse to get a better monitor).

    I was worried that the 6x11 size would be too small to work with, but it really is more than enough to work with, even with the unusable zone on the left. The size of the whole tablet is about as wide as a standard keyboard and a little taller.

    A note for Vista users, when you install the tablet, Vista recognizes it and tries to use it as an input device for everything using handwriting recognition (it works impressively well), which is both cool and annoying. I finally turned it off as it just bugged me.

    There was also a coupon for Photoshop CS3 in the packaging. I ended up getting both the tablet and Photoshop CS3 for the price of what Photoshop CS3 would have cost alone, a HUGE plus.

    I really have nothing bad to say about this tablet, it simply rocks. Even though it's connected via a USB cable, the cable is roughly six feet long so I have all the freedom I could want....more info
  • Generally good tablet could be quite a bit better
    The tablet does a pretty good job. The problems I have with it is that there are very few buttons for you to set (even though there is space for way more) and the keys that are there are all blank so I don't (easily) know what they do! I wish the tablet was wireless so that I could put it on my lap or any where else without the constraints of the cord. I like how you can set up the buttons for the various applications under system preferences....more info
