Genius tablets?

I am receiving a Genius 8"x6" inch tablet as a gift and I was wondering if anyone is familiar with them. I hadn't heard of them until maybe a week ago. Are they Vista-compatible or am I stuck with a dud?

Not to be overly blunt, but sell it on ebay and buy a Wacom. I know nothing about the tablet, it might be wonderful, but Photoshop, especially CS4, only offers it's best controls for Wacom. Other tablets will work, including yours (unless it's not Vista-compatible, can't help you there), but only Wacom will provide the finest degree of control and interoperability that Photoshop offers.

Yes, it works under Vista. I have a (low-end) Wacom that I keep at work since I bought the Genius for home. Doug may be right about the fine degree of control etc. but I have no complaints.

Thanks... now if I could just get the pen to work no longer gives that fine control.

I think they sell the pen alone over the website. Or you can find it in ebay.
