    I got a small Intuos 4, and I don't have any complaints with it. I've had it ages, too.

    Really? I'm heavy handed and never had this problem with any of my tablet pens. I drop them on the floor a lot too and still no issues. Just how heavy handed are you?

    Well not -that- heavy handed. I'm not scratching up the tablet or anything or purposefully pressing super hard. Honestly it shouldn't be getting stuck. I've had three tablets and pens that didn't do this previously. It started with the intuos 4 and now 5. Sooo....maybe its a model thing or I've recently gotten unlucky.

Yeah you'll see some scratches here and there through the surface but it works fine, it's pretty much cosmetic. My Intuos3 was like that too -- you could see plenty of scratches through it but it never affected the usage of the tablet.

    And I agree about the drivers, download them from the site... The ones on the disc are real screwy.
    Agreed about the drivers.

    It helps to also get a cover if you're worried about scratches to the surface as they can just be replaced. They're really good tablets, albeit awfully expensive. They have a nice pressure range to give nice, smooth strokes and your stylus will come with ten nibs (including special nibs) so don't worry too much about those. As said, try for a medium at the smallest. I've used a small and it will cramp your hand pretty easily.

    I love my Intuos4. I bought it in February of this year as my birthday present to me! Well... half of the money was my grandmas birthday present to me. Indeed, at first the nibs wore down fast because of the texture. I hated the texture. I like the slick plastic on plastic feel that my GraphireET had. Thankfully though, since I have drawn so much, lots of the texture on the tablet surface has worn down. Also, I don't use the nibs that came with the tablet... I use generic (harder) ones that I bought on eBay. I find that it makes a difference for how long they last.
