It's the single greatest thing I own and has changed how I work. I'm not a pro by any means but I've made major improvements since getting it and it's just plain fun.
The only downsides to it are the fact that it heats up and that I'm afraid of scratching it. And I'd hardly consider those downsides.
when i tried it, it got warm but nowhere near as hot as the 21inch Cintiq gets. i also love that it's no heavier than an intuos.
