Question: Does anyone else who owns one of these remember whether the "three extra nibs" of different types are included in the box? If so, they're missing from mine.

Edit, 17:40 CST Sat 29 Jan 2005 - My dad found them on the ground! They had rolled out of the box: not three but five extra nibs (two new types and three replacements for the one that's in the pen already). Just thought I should mention that. All hail Wacom!

My wacom tablet is much older, but it didn't come with extra nibs. Certainly, that might have changed since.

OK, thanks
It says "3 extra nib styles" on the box and the "box contents page" of the Quick Start guide refers to "optional pen nibs", which is a little ambiguous.

The Amazon page and this review both refer to the three extra nibs, though.

OMG so jealous....Let us know how it works! Sorry you got shorted some nibs.

Worry pas...
... I have a grant proposal due next week, so my time to diddle with it is scarce... for now.

But come Friday next! Man alive, Wacom I will play!
(The lesser-known cousin to the dreidel song.)

Worry not - I will report on it, and if I can get the nibs, no biggie. It certainly seems I ain't the only one.

Oh mercy that is a fine peice of machinery.

I just have a tiny 4"x5" area. *sniffle*
Jan. 29th, 2005 09:07 am (UTC)
It's not the size of the area...
... or somethink like that.

Seriously, 'tis all I can do to be worthy of this nice little drawing tablet, or at least not be a "cow being played the lyre" as we Chinese say (cf. pearls before swine).

I shan't treat it as a toy!
Well, not much, anyhow. ;-)

You deserve this much more than I do, and no mistake!
I really like your work, if I haven't mentioned it before.

Tell you what: when I take over the world, everyone gets a free one of these! Only people who show that they can put it to good use get the mega-giant Intuoses, though.

(If by some strange twist of fate, you're ever in my neck of the woods, do stop by so's we can let you play with the cool "toys".)

My wacon didn't come with any extra nibs.

I don't think the other types do either.

Deceptive marketing it is.

Deceptive marketing: free extra nibs on Wacom tablets?
Hrm, I think you're right.
I wonder how they explain it: just that it's optional and that you can buy them as "refills" or something?

i really want to upgrade my tablet. i have had my eye on one of those, either the middle or largest of the three there. i love my old cheap wacom, but art compels me to spend money on better tech.

We bought a few of those for work...thinking about getting the ones that come with a screen. You draw directly on the screen.

Wacom Cintiq and Tegrity
Well, the Wacom Cintiq is what we use on the roving Tegrity cart (and have since 2003, which gives you an idea how much it cost back then).
