Eh, I can't give you advice on other tablets, but my Wacom Bamboo Splash was only $60 on Amazon and it's been lovely to draw with (and bamboo dock has a lot of fun tools to play around with, like their doodler, a program that converts your written letters to text, and a few games like paper cakes)

I like Wacom best. If you want something cheaper from Wacom to start with, try one of their Bamboo tablets. I have the Intuos 4 and it works like a dream. But if you're planning on getting an Intuos, I'd highly recommend getting a medium size or larger. It's worth the larger price tag, trust me.

I've never tried Genius tablets but I don't have any complaints about my current tablet (Wacom intuos 4) so I see no need to try other brands :P

I have a brandless Tablet, and it served me well the last 3 years. It is starting to get a little inconvenient, but man it did serve me well.
I heard that people complain about their Wacom after a few months, so I guess I won't have to think about getting one for now...

Though I'm dreaming to have the awesome Wacom Tablet with the screen display, that one that costs like 2900 dollars :(

A tablet is going to be at least a small investment either way, so shoot for quality. Wacom all the way.

If you mean tablets, stay away from genius.

They sell genius tablets here. At first, I was tempted to buy one, since it was a quarter (locally at least) of the price of wacom tablet.

So, I tried one out in the store.

I couldn't even write my name with the damn thing. The pen was writing even if the tip was half a cm away from the tablet. There was no pen pressure, despite the sales guy fiddling with it for 15 minutes. I was assured that there would be.

Last month, I bought a generic $35 tablet. Looking at reviews, the tablet I bought was inferior to a wacom in all respects, but it still performs better than the piece of garbage that was a Genius tablet.
