Default Usb Graphic Tablets

Anyone had any experience with graphic tablets I'm looking to get one as I decided to actually learn photoshop and digital painting properly .

I'm looking for a budget model since I'm well... on a budget something like this.

Amazon.com: Wacom Bamboo Create Pen and Touch Tablet (CTH670): ElectronicsAmazon.com: Wacom Bamboo Create Pen and Touch Tablet (CTH670): Electronics

I hear Wacom makes quality tablets so just wondering.

Wacom is going to be the best out there, all the others miss the mark especially when it comes to accuracy and pressure.

They have several "ranks" of tablets, ranging from affordable to extremely expensive. The Bamboo and Intuos are the every day brand, while the Centiq is their higher brand, but expect to pay more as you go up in scale.

The Intuos are pretty good, especially if you are going to use it quite a bit on a more serious level. Bamboo used to be not very good, but over the past couple years they have brought them up to a more professional entry level. A few years ago they didn't even have pressure sensors.

I'm still probably going to get the intuos5 but I already have a xoom tablet like in this video so I'm going to check out the autodesk sketchbook app to see if it's cool to use as well.

That looks very gadget-y and high tech. Is it any good? I have a gigantic wacom intuos3, but it's getting pretty scratched up. I highly recommend Photoshop CS3 or Painter for digital painting
And, happy belated birthday!

Unfortunately I haven't has a lot of time to use it much as of yet. All I know is that I plugged it in and it worked!!!

Hopefully I will have some time this week to tinker with the software and get it nice and setup so I can actually draw and paint with it.
