    Hopefully they have changed the surface, as the Intuos 4 was rubbish. The extra paper-like feel was all good, but the nibs had to be replaced after days. People weren't happy.

    I sold one of my Intuos 3s (one at home and one at work) and was intending on replacing it, but I'm going to wait and see what others report, as there's no way on earth I'm going to replace it if the 5 has the shortcomings of the 4 - I'll just take my one remaining Intuos 3 with me.

    I've got an intuos 4, and granted the only thing that lets it down is the rough surface. Everything else is sublime but the surface is that bad that I'd probably take an intuos3 over it! Lets hope the intuos 5 sorts it out!

    Having gone from an Intuos3 to an Intuos4 and as someone who isn't a hard-core user of graphics tablets, I'd rather buy new nibs that learn to cope with the feel of older tablet surfaces, no matter how hard I tried in the limited amount of time I spent with the Intuos3, I preferred to work on paper, with the Intuos4 I was happy to work direct on the tablet for the first time.

    Yes please, I love the 4L. Agreed about the inconsistent surface and nibs burn. I wander if the screened versions are better, the 21UX I had at work got sent back, it's so inaccurate.
