I ditched my mouse long ago and got myself an intuos and then built a 45 degree stand. Now I use it 100% of the time. I'm convinced this is the only way to use a computer properly. Who here /wacom/ masterrace?
>>
>>52457080
Got an Intuos too, and it's great for annotating / drawing.

But for normal navigation, the trackpoint on a Thinkpad is still the most ergonomic device I have used.

That's fucking dumb. If you hate mouse this much or want to be hipster then use trackball. Holding a pen all day tire and wear your hand much more than resting it on a mouse/trackball.

The issue is that Wacom tablets use absolute tracking unlike trackpads, mice, clitmice, ETC which use relative tracking. Playing an fps on a Wacom just results in your crosshair spinning uncontrollably in a circle

>>52457694
You can set Wacom tablets to relative tracking as well.

it doesn't, i use it all day errday. Trackballs are far more annoying to use. I use my wacom over my dual screns and its fine. Everything is just fine.

I was told that when it comes to cintiq territory you must go wacom as there is no other competition, but for cheaper tablets you can go elsewhere for must more reasonable prices, and the higher-end tablets may have competition by now, too. I heard about a year ago that a company was trying to compete, but I certainly don't have any details on the matter. This is all vague and hearsay, but wacom definitely fucks its customers in the ass with their prices.
>>
what wacom should i get for osu? the bamboo and OPs pic look cool.
currently using huion h420
>>
>>52457080

>I ditched my mouse.

You got that part right but should have just stopped there.

The 'only way to use a computer properly' is not taking your hands off the keyboard and only using the mouse/tab/whatever you are using if it is absolutely necessary.
>>
>>52458344
Not him but I want to get the Yiynova 22u v3 this year because it has an ips screen, pen pressure and a large size, all I want in a grapics display. I don't need all the bells and whistles that the Cintiqs offer, even if I can get the Cintiq 13 in the same price range it's just too small.
>>
>>52458681
Wacom Intuos Pen Small is pretty good

these things are great for photoshop and lightroom but fuck using them as a mouse.

there's a reason mice and keyboards still exist though all other meme tech, it's because they work well.

Why does Lenovo put the FN key left of the ctrl key? I've tried several times but I can't get used to that shit.
>>
>>52459580
No idea, but I love it.

You can always switch it in bios if you don't like it.
>>
>>52459635
I can see how I could switch it for Thinkpads, but that thing is a USB keyboard, so unless I mod the hardware there's no changing it.

I prefer trackpads

Feels good man. Not sure if good or bad rank for only a month but i like the game, using a h420. I love it but wacoms look so nice.

Thinking of an upgrade, cth-470 or 480?
Also I hear wacoms refresh rates are slower, does that affect the game?
>>
>>52459910
Dont bother with the cth ones, go with ctl-480 if you insist on getting a wacom. and no the refresh rates dont affect anything

It's amazing once you get used to it. You're correct for the USB keyboard. You can't switch it so if you get the variant with the short shift key, you're fucked for any shortcut that requires CTRL and SHIFT to be pressed.

The fact that you can't swap FN and CTRL and the fact that the keyboard cannot handle WINKEY+LEFT_SHIFT+RIGHT are the only negative sides of it.

Are wacoms really that much better than a cheap Huion H420? They're expensive af but I thought it was just the brand marketing
>>

Post picture of your stand
>>
>>52460275
The difference isnt really huge but Wacom CTL-480 has 0 input lag with the correct drivers and it feels smoother + the pen has no batteries making it lighter. I've owned both the h420 and my current CTL-480 and the upgrade was definitely worth it for me. There's a reason why not many top players use the H420.

There's nothing wrong the the h420, the wacoms just look nicer, I haven't used one but personally, but most people say so. It's the same model as the osu!tablet

The only drawback is that the drivers take a bit of fiddling to get working on Windows (only to configure buttons, if you got an h420 over a 420).

Only reason I want a Wacom is again, it looks cooler, but it's also bigger.

Note 4 as wireless digitizer with S-Pen master-god-race here. You are on the right path, OP.

>>52458739
Indeed.
At least changing to the mouse is somewhat fast. It's right there, ready to be moved. A pencil you'd have to pick up, and move to the correct place.

I wonder how much of the sales of the lower end wacoms are osu players. It would be pretty dank if they did a faster osu specific tablet with a glass surface or something.

Well, Huion sells enough that they put the osu! logo on the box, plus the official Osu!™ Tablet is also a Huion model just with a skin on it.

I'd buy that so hard. My tablet surface is so worn and when i first got it, a single fucking 207pp song ground up the nib so much. Now i use the eraser tip, which fucks the surface but doesnt wear as easily

Not him, but hovering is hard since the slightest tremble or shake mwlesses up your aim, plus it's harder to hold it up the entire song instead of letting your forearm/wrist rest on the tab
>>
>>52463149
What can i say, it worked for me better than dragging, eliminated a lot of wobble, and feels a lot better than hovering.
Pretty much what >>52463240 said
