hi matt,

i am working with the graphire tablet as my standard input device. my
opinion is, that you get a very good product along with a very good
configuration software for a very reasonable amunt of money. this may sound
a bit odd now, but i like the size of the tablet.... i don't have a
giant-size desk and it is always crammed with scribble sheets, pencils,
printouts, coffee-mugs, etc....(can hardly see the screen sometimes). what i
like particularly is the no-ball-mouse with two buttons and a wheel, i had
to work with apples iMac-mouse for some weeks and that was a real pain in
the butt. one thing though, if you are in need of a highly precise device
retouching work and accuracy down to a single pixel, you should really spend
some extra money and get yourself a 'standard' wacom-tablet. the graphire
proved to be quite inaccurate when working in photoshop.

hope this helps a bit,
