      Excellent review. I've been teetering between buying one, and doing without. I'm still trying to figure out if I should buy a couple of good books or buy the tablet (can't have both). The review was one that was really welcomed by me. Thanks Greg.

        thanks for the really helpful review greg! I've always loved doing non-digital art, and so of course I find the mouse pretty clumsy to use the digital stuff, but I didn't really know too much about the tablets. great to see that it comes with a version of Painter, since I'm getting interested in digital artwork. (I love the cat portrait you did) one of the main things stopping me from buying a tablet is the price, but if this one is good quality for a pretty low price, then that's great (also it has a Linux driver!! )

          Thank you all for the nice compliments! That was my first review and was a lot of fun to write.

          Ed- That's a tough decision! Christmas (and your birthday!) is not too far away...

          David- I actually had finished the review and sent it to Doug when it suddenly dawned on me to research if a Linux driver was available...I figured you and some others might want to know! Does "the GIMP" support tablets under Linux?

            Nice review of my favorite product Greg, and very left brained of you.

            Now for Ed et al. go out and buy one tomorrow, it's equal in it's utility to any great graphics proggy, i.e. PS, Painter, and PSP.
            Everything you have seen me do here except for a couple oldies was done with Graphire2. It's increased my output several hundred percent, no jive. If your not going to paint or draw, it's still better for freehand selections and more. No, they don't pay me to plug their product.

              Great review! I can't imagine working in Photoshop without my Graphire2 now. When I started, I was afraid I should have sprung for one of the larger Intuos models, but the small size has been a plus for me as well.

                yep GIMP and Linux support tablets.

                  Aiptek Graphics Tablet 9x12
                  by Kristin
                  I just bought an Aiptek graphics tablet (9x12) in the states. I decided that it was a much less expensive investment than the $860 canadian price tag for the Wacom one. Does anyone use an Aiptek tablet? I literally just installed the software for it tonite so I could use any feedback anyone has to...

                  Aiptek vs. Wacom
                  by themanda
                  Hello all! Thought I could finally contribute something useful to these great forums.

                  I've been exclusively using a Wacom Graphire II at work for the last two years. I love it, and find it extremely easy to use even with the limited surface area allowed.

                  Which Wacom Tablet is good and affordable.
                  by ashphotoart
                  Hi,

                  Still I'm using my mouse for working with photoshop for retouching/restoration.

                  Now I'm thinking to work with Wacom Tablet, but I don't know which one is good and affordable. I'm looking to go on the point.

                  Hope someone would help me.
