It all depends on what the user would like to accomplish and the device capabilities. Other companies have manufactured similar products, but I can not speak to the quality nor the capability.

Thanks.

Congrat's. The other topic that I have not seen discussed in this topic disucussion is the portability of the device along with the ability to store the item if needed. Keep in mind some of the larger devices are a bit large to just move to the side of a desk if space is at a premium. Once again, congrat's on the new item.

Re: Need advice on buying Wacom tablet

I am back one's again to my thread and this time to ask you advise about tablet it self. I find some things quiet diferrent from using mouse like: when I use pen brush, cloning tool or just stamp tool the circle/tip -defining size is not what I see when I press the pen.Strokes are acttually narrower then the size of the brush(for example). When I use mouse strokes seems to be ,,wider,,. Do you tablet users have the same thing?Certainly need to clarify things here though I hope it makes a sence what I have writen.Thank you.

Re: Need advice on buying Wacom tablet

Since the mouse isn't pressure sensitive, the mouse always uses what amounts to full pressure on each stroke, so those strokes will always be as wide as whatever size brush you've chosen. With the pen, the width of the stroke usually depends on how much pressure you use. If you press down with the pen so it's receiving full pressure you'll see the stroke the same size as the brush size you've chosen.
Some programs, like Photoshop CS5, will allow you to choose whether the pen stroke is either the full size of the brush with each stroke regardless of the pressure, or if pressure determines the size, or if pressure determines both size and opacity.
