Tablet suggestions? Any Intuos pen/touch users?

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 15, 2014, 2:24 PM

Be Proud!

I'm looking into new tablets (just curious, really) and I was wondering what kind of tablets everyone use?

I always read reviews, but what I noticed is that most of the time reviews aren't from artists. They're from engineers or casual users - I need artists' opinions!

Personally I've been using my Wacom Graphire 4 for almost 6 years now I think? I absolutely [i]adore[/i] it, but since wacom stopped making graphire's so I have to look at other brands and types. Mine is still working just fine, but the cord is starting to fray and the usb part can be a little touchy. I'm always one to be prepared, so I'd really like to decide on one so I can start saving and maybe order around christmas.

I'll start off by saying I am NOT interested in bamboo's. I HATE THEM! I know that's pretty much what everyone uses because they're the cheapest tablet wacom sells, but really, I despise using them. All of my past friends and artists I know always try to sell the bamboo to me, and it's just not gonna happen. The drawing surface is what I hate - the last bamboo I used I scratched all to hell, I'm assuming because of the way I draw. (Also personally I see everyone having to replace their bamboos after only a 2-3 years. BOTH my graphire's have lasted me 5+)

Also size-wise, is it worth it to go for something bigger? I've always had 4x5's (I think that's the dimensions? it's small), and never used anything bigger so I have no idea what the difference is.

I heard a lot about monoprice's a while back, but checking their reviews i'm not so sure anymore. I don't know how I feel about a battery-operated pen, and a lot of reviews talk about how difficult they are to set up software-wise, and that they're not very durable. (I'm technostupid)
I just read up on the new wacom intuos pen & touch but I'm not sure. Like I said, very few reviews from actual artists. I really like how they look on the site, but idk. At $100, it's a little pricey when I'm not sure I'm going to like it. Especially when the reviews mention a "coarse" drawing surface << Thats' what I hated about the bamboo's, after all!
