    I'm using Wacom Bamboo Pen at home, it's cheap, got pressure sensitivity, serves me well. At work i'm using Wacom Intuos 5 Small Touch, got it recently, still checking it out. It's a fine tablet if you can afford it, pen is much nicer, have tilt shift and the feeling of drawing is more natural than Bamboo, doesn't feel so "plastic". Touch is on "off" most of the time as i don't find it useful, though some might. At the end it's all about your skill, not so much the tool. :) I would recommend starting with Bamboo... Hope this helps a bit :)

    I have never tried the Wacom series but I have used a very cheap Aiptek 600u Tablet. Does almost everything you can think of and has loads of hotkeys, pressure sensitivity settings and macro keys. Im quite happy with it for a starter model but.... I would die for a Cintiq 12WX.... I just need to rob a bank though to be able to afford ! hahaha. ;)

    It depends on the style of arrk you want to create. If you are a natural artist and want to use it like painting then I'd recommend the Intuos as it has extra features suitable for painting. If you do more graphic design like I do, then a Bamboo is fine as you won't really need features like tilt etc.

    I do a lot of photo retouching and some years ago I had a terrible hand pain due to using mouse so much. Then I tried a wacom tablet and I felt relief! Now I have an Intuos4 small at work and a bamboo for my laptop at home. I've tried the Intuos larger size but I have a limited desktop area and I found the small size to be the best solution, considering the the price difference as well.

    I use Bamboo S and intous M, when i want draw big things S is too small but M i fell is to large :) if you want only retouch S is good choice and if you want draw you must get M size

    I own an intuos 3 A4 and its great for the occasional photoshop work but not as much as I thought, hence rarely used and there are cheaper options available. Size wise I found A4 too big and seriously considered selling to buy the smaller A5 oversize version.

    I found this site helpfull

    http://www.tablet4u.co.uk/product/en/intuos3-a4-usb-tablet.html

    Good luck

    They are definitely helpful. In regards to upgrading or purchasing a tablet, I would go with an Intuos 4 or 5. I still have my Intuos 3 from about 5 years ago, and as much as I love it, the flaw is that you cannot replace the usb cord that plugs into the computer.

    Hi I have invested loads in Wacom tablets from the tiny to A3 had Intous 3, Intous 4 and a Cintiq bamboo don't even bother.

    If you haven't used before try to borrow to trial or get from a good retailer dont want to plug computer earth something like that . I got the last Bamboo including touch installed had a play about and when I didn't get on with it got a no quibble refund.

    I certainly not promoting borrowing items but its certainly nice in the knowledge that if you don't like don't have to send back and its nearly all-ways quick to get to.
