Whatever works better for you, but one advice:
Never trust in "Trust"! :)
"Volito" is low-end tablet too, better go straight for Intuos 2 A5 or Intuos 3. Im working on Aiptek 12000u A4 already 2 years and im happy with it, but it cant compare with Wacom. Good luck!

Sorry for caps but its justified in this case

NEVER GET A TRUST, NEVER EVER EVER.

Save for a wacom.

I just switched from a trust pad.. that I never really used to a Intous3 a4 size.. It's a bit big
so you could probably get away with a a5. It's DEAD ACURATE and I love it beyond anything allready :)

Now I just need to get more experience using it, pluss get better at drawing. Good luck on your choice

Whichever model and size you decide on, be sure to buy a Wacom tablet. They are by far the best tablets and Wacom is a great company.

The Wacom Volito is only available in Europe and not in America/Asia. I have observed that there many Wacom users praising the Graphire and Intuos, but extremely rare posts on satisfaction with the Volito. Could this be due to European users keep their feelings to themselves, or they are just not that happy with the Volito?

Could just be that most of us have never used a Volito?
I for one have never seen one for sale (not that I've ever looked for one mind you) and thought that it was a discontinued line.

I use a Graphire 3, and other than being small, it's a fantastic tablet.
