Intuos2 goes platinum

The shiny new Platinum version of Wacom’s Intuos2 graphics tablet is designed to look right at home in a digital artist’s workspace. But don’t let its pretty face fool you: this is one serious input device.

I tested the 15x20cm version of the Intuos2 Platinum Edition, which overhauls the looks of the existing Intuos2 line.

Though primarily the province of designers, graphics tablets such as the Intuos2 are an excellent alternative to the ubiquitous mouse for computer users looking for more precise cursor control, or battling repetitive stress injuries. Except for the scroll wheel, the Intuos2 pen duplicates every mouse function, and offers pressure sensitivity as well.

If you still need a mouse, the Intuos2 doubles your input pleasure by including Wacom’s cordless, three-button 2D Mouse. Wacom improved the Intuos2’s looks with the Platinum Edition, but the software bundle remains the same. It features Adobe Photoshop Elements 2, CorelPAINTER Classic, and Wacom’s own brush presets for Photoshop.

If your work doesn’t require a graphics tablet, justifying the Intuos2’s cost can be difficult. But if price isn’t an obstacle, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a graphics tablet that does the job better.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
