    Wacom Volito?

    Ok, up until now I've been using a Trust Wireless Design & Work Tablet, but it's buggy as hell, getting updated drivers requires an online registration and the batteries make the pen top heavy which makes it difficult to control. Oh, and said bateries will run out with a few days use. So I've decided I'm going to change tablet I'm using.

    What I would like to know is if anyone knows much about the Wacom Volito? It's inside the price range I can afford (I'm pretty broke right now, but can probably scape up enough for it) and it's one of the few wacoms available near me (only other I've seen is the intuos2, which is *way* out the price range)

    I'd just like some opinions on it before I go and by it. I know it's got a small drawing surface, but it's only an inch smaller than my current one so that doesn't bother me.

    thanks for the help

    Take a look at graphire

    Wacom has a good line of tablets named Graphire. They are less expensive than the Intuos version, but still sensitive.

    A6 - http://www.wacom.com/graphire/4x5.cfm
    A5 - http://www.wacom.com/graphire/6x8.cfm

    if they are a bit ore than you want to spend,
    Maybe you can find one of these in your price range at

    www.froogle.com
    www.ebay.com
    www.nextag.com
    www.pricegrabber.com
    etc.

    Best of luck

    Thanks for the advice. I knew about the graphire before, but it is a bit pricey (I'm currently looking for a part time job, so 'm kinda short of cash). Problem is that nobody near me seems to sell them. I think I'll just get the volito and see what it's like. If it doesn't suit I can always take it back. I'll have a look around first though, see if I can find a cheap graphire first

    Yeah, I saw one of those a while back (when I got my trust tablet). It was in a clearence salethough, and I dont think anyone stocks them anymore. Sadly I didn't hav the money with me and it'd sold by the time I got back.

    Anyway, thanks for the advice. I ended up getting the volito anyway, and it's a hell of a lot better than the one I had, so I'm happy enough.
