Recommend me a good drawing pad

#1m_x360Posted 7/5/2012 10:29:06 AM
I'm looking for a tablet that can help me color pictures and draw instead of using the mouse pad in the Paint program (or any other drawings program of course) So which drawing pad would you recommend me? Is this device good ?:

Sorry if I said something wrong but I really don't know what exactly it's called wither tablet or drawing tablet. I'm unfamiliar with it but I've always loved to color and draw in the Paint program in Windows but I like to draw with a pen instead of a mouse pad. Thanks for your time.

P.S. Preferable if it's something reasonably priced. Not something high and fancy.

Yeh... the Intuos has the built-in screen, making it much easier to draw. If money is an issue tho, just get a Bamboo Pen or something. Less than $100 there.

the cintiq are the ones with the screen built in. the intuos are like bigger, vastly more precise versions of the bamboo series. smallest one is $230 for the 6.2" x 3.9" tablet. it's damn good though if you can get one.

Oops. You're right. I saw $1000+ in the previous post, and the only ones I've seen in that range are the ones with built-in display. Even now, just looked at Wacom's site, and the most expensive Intuos is $790, so they're not *that* bad. Cintiq is the line I was thinking of tho. But yeah, 2048 pressure levels instead of 512 is a big difference.

no the Cintiq are the one with build in screen. The Intuos are the professional brand and the Bambo are the aim for home user.

It's all depends of your needs. If you draw a lot, I would suggest you the Intuos one (or Cintiq if you have the money) since they have the best features to help you draw (like 60 degrees of tilt sensitivity and 2048 levels of pressure), but if it's only for quick sketch or some home photo retouching then the Bamboo line-up are more than enough and are a lot more affordable.
