I bought a Wacom Intuos 3 6×11 tablet!(^o^)

I often check out Wacom tablets on Ebay and often look at how much the Intuos 3 tablets sell for. Currently, the 6×11 tablets sell at $550AU average. Normally if you were to buy the same tablet from the Wacom website distributor, It normally costs up to $650AU. This time, I had found myself an auction rather than a buy it now, so I decided to add it to My Ebay so I could follow it and hopefully get it cheap. However, after a few days, about 5 minutes before the auction was about to finish, I actually noticed the reminder email sent to me. As I didn’t check my main very often, I had nearly missed it. As I already own a smll Intuos 3, I wanted to upgrade to a larger tablet, however, as you7d expect I was hesitant because I already owned a tablet and wasn’t as good at drawing as I would like to be. So anyways, I ended up just bidding in the last few seconds really not sure if i should buy or not.. and I ended up unexpectingly winning the tablet.

I wasn’t sure at the time whether I should of been happy or if I should be regretting the purchase, but I was sure shocked that I won. The price that I got it for was $445AU. As this was my first bit at such a high amount, I was a bit worried, but now that I think about it, I actually got the tablet at a great price.

I paid straight away with Paypal, and I got a notfication mail the next day from the sender that it was posted. The tablet I bough was actually stated as 2nd hand, but it really was as described, in very good condition. It was in fact in better condition than the smaller tablet that I have been taking good care of. (^^)

I received it in a quite large package. When I purchase the tablet, I had a general idea of the size of it, but in reality, I was pretty suprised at the size of it.  It takes up about hlaf the space on my desk and did require some rearranging.

It took a while to get used to drawing on the larger 6×11 sized tablet. It took roughly 1-2 hours. My previous tablet was so small compared to it, so a small twitch of my fingers would make a large movement of the cursor on the screen. However on the new tablet, I had to not only move my fingers, but also had to use my arm and wrist to get the same effect.

Anyways, I am really enjoying this new tablet.
