Which digitizer to buy?

Hey everyone! I'd REALLY appreciate if you hot digitizer users could give me some advice on this, thanks! Please!

I'm buying a digitizer - not too expensive, and I know y'all got Wacom. Now, a very popular digitizer in the cheap area is no doubt the Graphire 2,
BUT, why not buy the TRUST work tablet 400 instead, which is 8x6 instead of Graphire 2's 4x5???

The TRUST tablet is bigger and cheaper than the Graphire 2, and it even has function key short cuts on the tablet.

Why go WACOM? What's so funky about it, that makes it better than the competetion? Does anyone out there have a TRUST tablet?

Thanks in advance for you help!

Cheers,
- Jonas

hmmm...thats a good question the only thing that worries me is the non wacom doesnt specify levels of pressure but has a higher resolution...which makes sense because it is bigger. and also whieghs a ton compared to the wacom

So far thanks for the help!

I'm contacting a dealer to find out about the pressure sensitivity. Will post here when I find out.

(I should add that I posted this in the Photoshop forum because that's what I intend to use it for, plus I figured this is where I'll find the most digitizer users... so, I hope you don't mind me taking up a hardware issue in a software forum )

So, I talked to a dealer about the tablets, and while he couldn't tell me about the pressure sensitivity of the TRUST, he said the difference was quality... The TRUST board is for fun, the Graphire 2 is for serious people.

So, I'll be most pleased with the Graphire 2, I guess.
