    Wacom's is pretty sure the best, my bamboo is like 7-8 years old now? and still works like new. So an intuos should be good enough^^ I also hear good things about the Huion

    Though you might need to get used to drawing with a tablet without screen, due eye and hand coordination. It can be weird at the beginning, but just keep practicing and drawing and you will get used to it after like some months^^

    I've been using a wacom for about... 14ish years now. Still works, had to replace the nib only once so far. I can attest to them working forever (at least the older models). But no matter which you choose, make sure to place it on the side of your dominant hand once you have one, not in front of you. That prevents some pain issues down the line.

    Did you know Wacom pens don't use batteries? They got some crazy magnetic field going on there. Technology is crazy.

    I just started digging into using my huion graphics tablet and while I'm nothing resembling an artist yet, I do really like it. $100 for a 16cm wide (not sure how tall) drawing surface was nothing to complain about either.

    Also worth noting, I have found using a pen differs little control-wise from using a mouse. You still see the mouse move, you just change how you interact with things. You press the pen down instead of clicking. Otherwise, not looking at my hand as I try to draw is a non-issue. I did not expect it to be so.

    I saw an unboxing. You need a cd drive to get the drivers right? They all come with a disk.

    @FleshToDust They can be downloaded from the website, as well.

    @taarna23 Oh so the cd is optional? I don't need to use it? I might have to pick this thing up then!

    My son wants to get a Wacom tablet. Was looking at the Intuos Medium, then realised this morning there's no multi-touch for zooming. How important is that? There's a $200 difference between this one and the Intous Pro to get the multi-touch. Do you have it? Do you use it a lot? Also USB vs wireless.

    @Shaz My bamboo has multi touch and tbh I never used it. It might depend how he likes to work but honestly, shortcuts on keyboard or manually with the pen are more than enough.
