graphics tablet
just wondering if anyone knows any good sites with good deals for a graphics tablet or if most people just use ebay and amazon

Depends on the type you want. XD Mine's a trust from an Argos Caterlog. lolol

Was about £40 but.. Meh... It's not greatbut does it's job.

Best looking up Wacom and I believe the Intuos ones are the best or try a Wacom bamboo. It's best to just look around but if anyone else knows where can get them cheaper then I'll be soo happy~

I've been so close to buying the intuos many times, but despite the large size (a4), I couldn't quite justify the cost based on how much I was likely to use it, so I just stuck with my old graphire (a5) and bamboo (a6)
Whenever I've been looking for stuff to buy (usually camera related), I always find myself at Pixmania. They do sell tablets as well as other electronics, so might be worth a peek to see if they have any on offer.

Ahaha hunting for a good tablet, this is something I have a lot to say about 8D

I first got a graphics tablet a few years back, I think it was a Trust... And it never worked. Customer service weren't very nice to me and it was overall a VERY bad experience that put me off having a tablet for a LONG time.
So I swore that if I ever did get one again it would be a very good one that I was unlikely to have any problems with.

I recently gave in and got a Wacom Intuos 2 A4 size, and I absolutely adore it <3 However, I was looking at Bamboos for a while, and the only reason I got an intuos is because my ebay stalking payed off (caught a graphic design studio selling off all their old tablets as they upgraded to new ones). I have several friends who study design however and who cope perfectly well with a bamboo. Wacom is definitely the way to go for quality though.

For a while I was planning on buying one from here: www.studica.com (only worth it though if you're a student/teacher) but I really recommend deal hunting on ebay if you have time xD

I just had to post as I've just bought myself a graphics tablet. I'm a poor student ): lol so I went for the Bamboo A6 and it's great! Even if it is small. I do recommend going with Wacom though as they are fantastic quality!
For me the size hasn't really mattered much but it's fantastic for the price. C:

I have a wacom bamboo. I swear if you get one: do NOT lose the spare nibs, replacements cost £25 odd D8

As for where to buy, I have no idea sorry, mine was a christmas present.

I bought my Wacom direct from Wacom. It was about the same as everywhere else though so didn't make much difference.

I've got a Wacom Bamboo Fun Medium (Odd calling it medium since they don't come in large O.o)

Anyway, I love it so much <3 I've had it a couple of years, it's exactly the right size for me to work on. Got it direct from Wacom.

I have a Wacom Intuos 3, it's pretty darn huge (bigger than my pretty enormous entertainment laptop) but I prefer it so. I used to have a smaller one, still Wacom, it was about the size of a mouse-pad and I used to have it beside my latop. My new, bigger one only finds room in front and its a helluvalot more comfy.
I found that I got quite a few wrist-pains with the small one.

Each to their own though, I like to work with long, slender lines, and not a number of small and stout ones. I also do more painting than lineart these days. If you use pen-tool a lot I guess size doesn't really matter.

I've never had any problems with my Wacom Intuos 3, and I've used it a LOT. I know a lot of people who are really happy with their Bamboo too, though. And quite a lot of talented artists still prefer a tiny (to me) working surface.
