Do you use CS, Aaron? Did you take a class or have you just always played around with it?

I use CS at home, but at the office we only have 7.


I've never taken a class, just always played around with it. I don't think I'm too bad, I'm more of a simple guy anyways.


I've made layouts for websites in Photoshop that are better than just coding HTML but I like them, http://www.questinteractive.net/soviews/

Has anyone ever used one of these? Review?

I've used Wacom products for years, and actually own a Graphire3 at the moment (I picked one up early last year for around $50.00 AC/AR).


For consumer-grade tablets, there really isn't a better choice than Wacom.


For a first tablet, this isn't a bad choice at all. Though it's rather small (this is the smallest Graphire tablet Wacom offers, with a 4x5" active area), the calibration software can map the active area to nearly any screen dimensions. The stylus and mouse are both wireless and do not require additional batteries nor charging of any kind. While I prefer the Intuos' stylus a bit better, the stylus included with the Graphire line is quite good, and offers 512 degrees of varying pressure sensativity (most of Wacom's higher end products offer 1024, but for a beginner 512 is more than adequate).


A large percentage of graphics related software applications offer integration with Wacom products, including pressure sensativity settings, individual stylus/mouse settings, application specific tools/command settings, etc. The software integration really makes the product what it is, rather than just a static input device.


If you're are looking to experiment with a tablet for the first time or (like me) are more comfortable with a pen/pencil/brush/etc, this isn't a bad choice at all at this price.


Also, this is one of the few reviews that offered any sort of actual information.
