Which tablet to buy?

I'm thinking about buying a graphic-tablet, but WACOM is a little bit expensive for my budget...

What recommendation do you have? Is there a cheap, affordable tablet out there you can recommend?

I have an el'cheapo Aiptek that I'm rather fond of. I've had it for two years and have just replaced the tip/nib. Its USB 4x6 and more than I need. I am an extensive user: Minimum of 4 hours per day, 8-10 on weekends.

Thanks Grafx,

I read your thread about your tablet. Does it have a touch-sensitive pen? I guess this is one of the most important features...

Yup, you can double click by tapping twice and it senses the pressure when you're airbrushing. You can be gentle or mash down on it.

I own the cheapest Wacom on the market - Volito. It is quite small, but i am fully satisfied with it. The pen does not have a batery so it is very light.
