I don't have a wacom myself and I haven't tried out any of the ones suggested, and therefore I'm not going to recommend any of them. I'm too shattered to look at them properly at the moment.
I would suggest making sure that the active area is at least A6, although A5 is possibly better particularly if you have a large monitor. Mine's A6 and I don't have problem with it it's just that I tend to zoom in excessive amounts. XD Stuff like the useable buttons is handy but not essential and I would guess the same with touch abilities. Oh and if you happen to look at anything that's not Wacom, check that the pressure sensitivity is 1,024 levels because 512 is really bad. But to be honest I don't know why you would get something that isn't wacom because it’s really not worth it anymore.
That’s interesting because I notice a definite difference between my tablet and a friend’s wacom, I think it was a bamboo fun. Maybe mine’s just particularly bad, unless it's possibly related to the driver. Wouldn't know.
well there IS a difference actually, just not that you can't achive the same quality with a tablet with 256 pressure levels! I have both intuos5 (2048 pressure levels) and a tablet PC with 256 pressure levels which is just about %12 of what the intuos does!
of course you have more control with 2048 pressure levels but it's also easy to get along with any levels of pressure! one again I prove that pressure sensetivity doesn't really matter with this link! [link]
[link] I would urge you to buy the one from the link I posted...its one of the best (along with the Bamboo Connect) in the lower price ranges...Plus its better than the ones in the link you posted...It has 4 usable buttons and 1000 + levels of sensitivity...Its super great and super cheap...You can check out some of my work to see what its capable off...I just bought mine about 3 months ago. Good Luck
