If I could, I'd get a wacom cintiq. Cheapest one is $1000.
Though you could probably find them cheaper on ebay.

these are the same tablets just package differently and you get what you pay for and the reviews are not good for these low end alternatives...but it you can get one second hand that would be the most economical route.

Dell is now selling Cintiqs and can be purchased through Dell Financing

I dont think glassfairy can avail of any dell financing and in anycase there are fairly good alternatives to the over priced wacom - I just found out !

Glad that wacom cintiq has some cometititors - and the pricing of wacom products ought to fall

wacom intuos 4 is perfect.

You need a lot of patience to learn to use, very patient.

Now I can do nothing without my wacom.

I recommend 100%

There is a Bosto (same tablet different name) for sale on KIJIJI here In Halifax Nova Scotia they want 600 bucks for it...seems too steep for a second hand drawing tablet

I could check it out and how it works and get back to you with a mini review

I've got a wacom. Haven't mastered it at all though! I just use my laptops touch pad!

Wacom Intuos - hands down. Any of the lower rungs on the wacom product ladder and they become more difficult to use due to the hard surface (although, this can be temporarily remedied by taping paper over the surface) You don't need the newest one, though - they really don't change too much from version to version. Last I checked, you could find an older Intuos that still has a usb plug on ebay for $75.

It becomes natural if you use the pen enough. In my desk drawer, I currently have 2 mice from previous wacom tablets brand new in the plastic. I've only ever used the pen.

Agree! Definitely Wacom Intuos. I'm still using my old 12" x 12" Intuos 2. I always use the pen. The mouse sits in a baggy in a drawer. LOL.
I think you could catch on with the pen pretty quick. Once you do, you'll never go back to the mouse. It's like drawing with a rock after using a pen. :) jmo

I have it but I am not happy with that. The pen is not sensitive and make it difficult to draw. But may be its just me.

OMG it seems for the lower end tablets i have to draw it blindly on it and see the thing on the screen thts gonna so be damn difficult. only with cintiq the drawing or work is visible on the tablet screen m i correct?

Yes you are correct,

drawing on a an Intous tablet takes time coordinate the hand and eye, drawing on a Cintq or knock-off like Huion where drawing is done on the screen.

even huion the high end version alone have drawing on screen...probably best i hold back for now and buy cintiq eventually.
