Unboxing Wacom Intuos Draw

Wacom Intuos Draw

The box art is nice with the product itself and a nice graphics art of a female.

The back plainly shows specification and features of the tablet in 5 different languages.

The product is contained inside of another box that provides more protection and holds the product securely. Pretty neat and gives that premium feeling.

Opening the inner box, we have the tablet itself and the pen. Cover and protected by a film plastic to prevent any scratches.


Out of the box, the tablet comes with a manual, CD that contains some software and driver, USB cable, the Pen, and a paper that contains and certifies that the product passed certain standards.


The tablet feels nice and smooth. The dotted area seems to be the active area where you can use the pen to draw. There are 2 bottons available on each top corners. Not sure if programmable or it does some special action when pressed. The middle top part has a strap available that acts as a pen holder.


The back shows the company name. It has four rubber feet to prevent it from moving around. What we noticed though is that the upper part of the back is removable.


After removing the top part of the back, what I first noticed is the battery slot. Although the Intuos Draw doesn’t really come with battery, it shows that you can use this tablet wirelessly but you have to buy the battery separately.

The tablet holds two extra pen nibs which is nice. So you can depend on the pen for a long time but apparently, you need a battery and a wireless module to go wireless. Not sure though if you can buy them separately.
