    i am thinking of getting a tablet to help with my graphic and photo editing. I know Wacom makes very good ones, but they are a bit pricey. i recently found an ad for one made by a company called Adesso, the product is the cybertablet. i would like to know if anyone has used one of the cybertablets or knows of someone who has, or even if you've see a review of them. thanks to all.

    Actually Wacom's tablets are not that pricey. I had a 4x5 grphire 3 but sold it beacause I wasn't using it. I have been too use to the mouse. It was worth around $120.00 Cad. One thing I might add is Ifound many people liked the smaller tablet for the shorter strokes.

    Adesso
    name size price
    cybertablet 6400 6x4 $69.99
    cybertablet 8600 8x6 $129.99
    cybertablet 12000 12x9 $169.99
    Wacom
    name size reg. price sale price
    Intuos2 9x12 $509.99/$392.98
    Intuos3 9x12 $469.99/$409.98
    6x8 $349.99/$299.99
    4x5 $219.99/$209.99
    Graphire3 6x8 $199.99/$159.99
    4x5 $99.95/$84.99

    As you can see, it would be more cost efficient to get either the 6x8 or the 9x12.

    I don't have experience with Adesso tablets.

    I use a graphire3 4x5. It's all you need for basic photo editing, and you can get through newegg.com for $80. It comes with photoshop elements, and procreate painter classic. ;)

    Thanks Matt. I've played around with the Wacoms before, but for the price I was thinking I could go a little bigger, but not ever having seen one, I was wondering about the quality of the Adesso.
