    I think the Cintiq 24HD is around $2.5K, shouldn't be too far out of your price range.

    Unfortunately, the only tablets I've ever owned was an Intous ($200+ retail) or a Bamboo ($79+ retail) and the cheapest Bamboo is around $35USD used (looks like the smaller version). I suggest you shop around, maybe even check eBay or something and see if they have any up for auction.

    IIRC, someone here bought one that wasn't Wacom and he(she?) was pretty happy with it. If you look back some past threads, you can probably see who it was and ask directly.

    definitely just go for the wacom bamboo

    I actually had an adesso tablet as my first tablet, and when I switched to a bamboo there was a maaaajor difference in quality and feeling.

    @trilokcool3: The difference in price between this digipro tablet and a wacom is probably because there are big differences in pressure sensitivity and resolution. I currently use an intuos with 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity, that's four times the amount on this digipro, and my tablet sometimes feel unresponsive and clumsy compared to traditional drawing. Drawing has been around forever, but digital art made it's breakthrough just about 10 years ago. If you're getting a tablet just to have fun with it then it'll probably be worth it. But if you want a tablet because you think you need it in order to become an awesome artist and eventually go professional, then I'd say you don't need this digipro. My "first" tablet was a graphire owned by my mom that she got when I was twelve, and I hardly used it. The first tablet that I really owned and payed for myself was an intuos 4 that I got when I was 20 years old. About everything that I know about drawing up to this point I've learned from drawing with pen and paper. It's both easier and cheaper. I wish you good luck and hope that you have fun whichever tablet (or no tablet) you choose to buy though =)
