    Think of warranty support before u buy the tablet..........

    Wacom distributor offer 1 to 1 exchange on pen or tablet if found manufacture defects within 1 year warranty period! (not user handling problem)

    My friend bought one Intuos3 for about 9 months + and encountered key button problem (he always over press too hard, should be under user handling issue to be frank), but the distributor treat it as hardware defect (u know button will not spoit by itself) and replace a new unit FOC! (really looks new, not refurnish goods) Sound good right?

    Job done by tablet with tablet pen will be N times faster than mouse, just like holding a normal color pen on papar with the nature and realistic pen feeling, tablet is more precise and accurate than mouse in term of sketching, drawing and editing (e.g. photo re-touch), pressure sensitivity and tilt function is another enhance features for pro user which a mouse is totally unbeatable in graphics design application.

    I started out with graphire. My wife have an intuous.

    I "upgraded" to genius g-pen, because I thought of getting a bigger and cheaper real estate. I am dissappointed. The genius g-pen's lag is awful. Not recommended for artist. No solution found for the problem, now it's just sitting in a corner.

    If you are thinking of using it for simple editing, genius g-pen should suffice though.

    Decided to upgrade after thinking about it for about 4 years. Initial impressions of the tablets led me to purchase an Intuos 4, which while a little like using a bazooka to kill a mosquito, it is a lovely user experience and quality feel which just lacks from others in this arena.
    Simple integration into mac/win OS, zero operation lag and user options were what sold me.

    My mouse has been collecting dust for a month now.

    Medium.

    $599 is not cheap, that I cannot argue, but as I say it's just a different user experience altogether, oh and the pen has a quality feel with good weight/balance.

    Intuos4 grip pen is double pressure sensitivity than the Intuos3 pen, currently Wacom Intuos4 is the only brand and model has 2048 pressure level!!! (Please take note, not all application can support 2048 pressure level.)

    And it can activate the pen tip sensor to start drawing by applying 1g of pen pressure!!! You may not need that feature unless you are pro in free hand sketching. By default, the pen is set at 3g of pressure to start drawing.

    I have tried both the Genius and Wacom brands of tablets. I use it for drawing mostly, and rarely (if ever) for photo editing though.

    What I'll say is, for the price tag, Genius has pretty good value. It is sturdy (I have dropped my tablet a bazillion times, if I bothered to keep count), it has never died on me a single time, and the sensitivity is decent enough for photo editing. However, I will say that when I switched to a Wacom, the difference was startling. The surface is so much smoother (but this made it a bit hard to get used to), the position accuracy is much better, and to be honest, I didn't even notice the 500 odd levels of pressure difference (I believe the Wacom Bamboo only has 512 levels of pressure sensitivity, while the Genius has 1024 or something like that). For photo editing, I'd suggest going with the cheaper option, because you really don't need all that much unless you're going to do high level digital manipulation like painting over the original photo.

    I bought both of my tablets at Challenger... I think the price is pretty reasonable (especially if you have a membership with them).
