You may want to look at Hanvon senTIP's, I believe for a 12" tablet it's around the Ģ550/ 600 mark, but they do look very solid and they produce some tablets that have the same technology as Wacom i.e. battery-less pens etcetera.

I had a cintiq 12WX and its color range was really poor, totally not worth the money it cost. Older models than that will likely have terrible screens using some old legacy LCD technology, so would steer well clear of those if your doing painting on it.

That one actually looks pretty interesting but impossible to tell without trying it and seeing a color profile.

That does look pretty good. I like the swivel. If you get one, let me know how it performs.

Check out yiynova review here . I think the features of the Bosto Kingtee 19 inch are nice, but I just can't hack the name and the logo. King Tee was a gangsta rapper. Scroll wheel and programmable buttons are nice to have, though.

I'm Chinese. I checked the website above. I also searched it in the websites in China. But there's no comments about this product. Only some flattering words, which you could easily found that they are offered by advertisers.

My suggestion is, if you really need such a device, buy a good one. I don't mean it should be at high level, but must be worth and reliable.

Also make sure thereīs continuous developing of the drivers. I have a P-Active at work. That one got its latest drivers 2009/11/30. Thatīs pretty bad. Also the tablet itself isnīt very good. It works but the calibration sucks. The distance between the protective surface and the cursor are about 5 mm so you wonīt get the natural feel of drawing on paper.

Thanks for the help everyone. I am thinking more about the Yiynova now... As long as they update the drivers often, it may be a viable option for me.

Back when I started working on a computer I bought a "knock off" 6x8 tablet. It worked ok for the first year then the pen broke. I bought a replacement pen and it broke again within a few months. I ended up buying an Intuos 2, how ever long ago that was and it's still in use today. Sometimes I still prefer it over my Cintiq. The point is I tried to save a bit of money only to end up spending it eventually. Personally I'd just save up a little longer and go for the Wacom.

edit: I also want to add I spent a good deal of time importing goods. There's a wide range of quality control on products like these. With a larger company like Wacom you also pay for the customer service, support and warranty. If any thing goes wrong more than likely you'll be taken care of.

Yiynova uses a VGA connector. Not a big deal but something to keep in mind.

Of course he makes those claims-he's selling it, isn't he? What did you expect from the manufacturer? :-)

yeah i know.. I was just desperate for some information I guess.

Here is a link where you can buy/see a bit more info on the Bosto Monitor, I am always looking for something that would compete with the Cintiq. I bought a tablet pc early this year so my computer painting desire has been filled with my fujitsu , if I hadn't bought the tablet I would be more interested in this now .
It would be interesting if anyone has experience with it , good or bad. Would like to know too.

Well, I have an Intuos4 (medium) with about 20 hours use on it. If someone wants that for $400, I'll put the money into picking up one of these to try it out. That way you'll at least have something that you know is quality and will work.

I don't use the Intuos because I don't have anywhere to put it (no desk) and it's too big for me to haul around (because I'm pretty mobile).
