Intuos3

I can buy an old Intuos3 PTZ-630 A4 for the price $83. It looks that the tablet is in a very good condition. What do you think? Is it a good price for the model?

Re: Intuos3

Hurry! But it does sound scary, because that is VERY cheap! Some caution might be in order... :shrug:

Look also for a good seller, how many years is he on the market, how many percent + how many people did have made a good deal with him (99,98 - 100% good deals are ok and if he have more than 100 (better 1000) buyers and also if he is also for a couple years on the market) . But ebay is not always a good place, because I did waste nearly 400€ with an broken lawn-cutter 3 years ago :PP ... but it was only one big mistake, in 99% I have made good deals in ebay, since 2007 - as a buyer.

or buy a new one? But I did read not so good things about wacoms new intuos 4 & 5 series since some years :PP - just look for OBSOLESCENCE + WACOM + INTUOS

Re: Intuos3

I would keep looking hard for intuos3, because mine is ancient by now and still works fine, despite coffee and sugar in the right button array, hahahaha.... :P
I hope you'll get the one you found, though! That would be an amazing price!

Re: Intuos3

Thank you guys! I am still hunting for Intuos3 in a good condition, :-)
Unfortunately the price I mentioned was the starting price and didn´t realised that. I saw it in a czech auction. I will be more clever in few days and let you know of course! :beer:

Re: Intuos3

That makes more sense... pfff...anyway, seems like there are a bunch of them around.
A brief check on Amazon (.com, though) showed 9 used starting at $99, so that is super dirt cheap!

Re: Intuos3

100 should be possible with some patience.
The Intuos pro S I have is pretty cool by the way. 169€ New with wireless kit, which very nice.
But the tablets surface is a bit soft. No big deal.
When I started using wacom I thought big tablets are the way to go. But now, I feel quite comfortable with the Intuos S when I am not in my Studio.
Wacom stopped suporting Intuos 2 in 2014. I wonder when they'll stop supporting Intuos 3 driver wise?
My Cintiq is Intuos 3 technique :(
Sure, one can stick on old driver for a few year... Depending on OS progress. Just to consider.

Re: Intuos3

Guys, thank you for your advices!

I decided to buy Intuos 3 that I described. The final price is $113. I dont´t have to pay a big amount of money for the shipment (only $4) and for duty because I bought it in my country - this is an advantage of this purchase. In case of eBay or Amazon it is common to pay an additional fee about $30 for a shipment from USA or UK to Czech republic..

Nevertheless I am waiting for delivery so I can say hurray after I get and check it! :-)
