Hi! I'm thinking of buying a tablet for graphical designing. Just wondering which one i should choose? I've been looking on wacom's and maybe TRUST. I dont wanna spend to much.

Ok, took a forum search, and found out that this question has been asked befor? Sounds like wacom is the winner, maybe the A5 size. If u got any suggestions though, please write.

It seems like there is only two kinds i can choose from here in norway, if I don't order directly from wacom. The two types are( ok 3 types but the last one is pretty expensive) :

1. Wacom Graphire 3 Classic

2. Wacom Home Photo Studio Collection 2

3. Wacom Graphire 3 Studi XL A5 (expensive)

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Seems that the Intuos2 gets the best reviews. And a couple of people have suggested that you not buy a really large one.

I just got an Intuos2 6x8 (an early Christmas present!), and loving it.

Looks like I'll be going for the graphire 3 classic (A6), I'm on a low budget right now. It seems to have a better reolution than the graphire 2.
Thanks for the replies guys!

Also Looking for a tablet, but not really limited in my Choices, You said that this topic was done before, and was curious if you would mind posting the Link?

FYI, if anyone knows of a Way to get a Kurda to work in XP that would be most helpful, and save me the Trouble of buying a new tablet

Just do a forum search. I just searched for "tablet", and got more or less 10 hits.

I would go for the best A4 Wacom you can get. It will be with you for a long time and A5 is just too small if you will be using it a lot for years to come. Save your money until you can get it. Also worth noting is that if you plan on using a high - ish resolution of close to 300DPI for print then you will need a good PC to run Photoshop (or whatever) quickly.

I got the Wacom Graphire 2, which is A6, and I absolutely love it.

Admittedly, it's a wee bit too small for professional paint work, but if your budget's too low for a bigger tablet, it's great value for your buck.
