Since the different tablet types work with different frequencies, not all pens are compatible to all tablets. Intuos supports only Intuos input devices, Intuos2 only Intuos2 devices, Intuos3 only Intuos3 devices. All UltraPad pens are compatible to PL/Cintiq (do not use UltraPen Ink or UltraPen Pencil on PL/Cintiq!), Graphire and Graphire2 devices are compatible among each other but not to other tablet types.

http://wacom-europe.com/int/support/faq/show_faq.asp?lang=en&id=36


So to sum it up.

Intuos1 - Intuos1
Intuos2 - Intuos2
Intuos3 - Intuos3 (Pretty sure these work with the newer cintiqs too)
Ultrapad/Artz - PL/Cintiq and Tablet pcs  (Im pretty sure this does not work with more modern cintiqs, like the 12" or 21")
Graphire1/2 - Graphire 1/2
Graphire3 - Graphire 3
Graphire4 - Graphire 4

How sure are we that Tablet PC pens work on the UD series?

The UD pens cost $50 online, but the equivalent Tablet PC Pens are only $30.

FYI, you can use the Bamboo pen for the Graphire 4.  Wink

I have bought a tablet pc pen and it works.

 Angry
just got an Intous2 tablet for a build and assumed that my Intuos tablet pen would work.  Cry

Should have searched a bit harder on these forums.

Thanks for the info.

Now I just wish I can find a pen that is cheaper than the cost I paid for my new tablet. I paid $90 for a 9x12. (pout)

Hey Guy's

First things first. Thanks for an excellent resource. I am defo gonna build my own Cintiq. I picked up a cheap bluetooth Graphire without a pen (not for my Cintiq) and spent days trying to find out about pens, even struggled to find it on Bongofish due to a difference of opinion on how to spell "compatibility" Huh. In the end I started compiling an exhaustive list to submit to Bongofish but as I was nearing the end of researching all the Wacom models I stumbled on this...

http://www.wacom-asia.com/aptky/607/pen.pdf

It is the best authority on "Pen Compatibility" that I have seen to date.

It also shows the serial codes to help identify your tablet. I have listed them here to so they will show up in a bongo search but not exhaustively as the they are in the PDF
ET- Graphire
CTE- Graphire 3 & 4
GD- Intuos
XD- Intuos2
VD- Art Pad Ultrapad Artz II
PTZ- Intuos3
PTK- Intuos4
DTI- DTF- DTU- PL-


-R = Serial
-U = USB
-BT = Bluetooth
-S-CL = Huh

I hope it is helpful.
