    tablet responding problems.

    okay, so i have this shitty 2 dolla' Genuis Easy Pen 1405x tablet, and sometimes i have to draw the line like, 4-5 times before it responds. also x-mas is comming up, and im thinking about buying a new one (proboably bamboo) i want one that lasts long enough for me to be able to draw for another couple of years. ive had my current tablet arround 1 -2 years. please give me some suggestions. im a real noob at this stuff.

    My... just let us know what's your budget... Bamboo are good and wacom stuff last long, so there will be no problems if you buy one. About the size, if you can try some, go and see what match your need better. I heard some goods things about Monoprix tablet too, but I don't have one so I can't tell for sure.

    There is a post, sticked in the forum here I think that make a long list about some good tablet, with the + and -

    Be aware that big size can be a problem... I worked with an intuos A4 size at school and that was really unpleasant for drawing... big tablet mean big gesture to draw a line or paint an area. It was ok for 3D but for home I take a A3 size and was totally happy with !

    That large becomes more valued when you work with 2 monitors and map the space.

    Right that's a good point ! I'm a single screen user so I didn't think about that.

    To complete about wacom durability (I'm not doing any kind of advertising it's just from my experience), I have my intuos 3 since 5-6 years now. It travelled a lot, encountered various chocs, served as cat-pillow some time, the pen fell multiple times this years because of my cats... and everything still working. So definitly, if you take a good brand tablet (wacom or other) I'm sure you will stay side by side for a loooooong time... Now you may just check if you want one to travel or stay at your desk. Price of course is the big point but refound are easy to find.
