I'm in the market for a tablet and after a little searching i found these:

here

here

and here

The price listed are as much as i can afford, anything more would be pushing it.
I ask you denizens of The Duck, Door 1, 2 or 3?

The links don't work right, so you may want to fix those.

I have an old Wacom Intuos2 8x6 tablet and it's been working great for the 6-7 years I've had it (somehow I'm still on the original pen nib, too). Personally, I'd go for a Wacom tablet though it sounds like you'd need to save up for that. Regardless, the larger the usable space, the better. Also make sure where you buy it from has a decent return policy in case it doesn't work the way you want it to.
That's “Dr. BlkKnight” to all of you.

The first tablet I purchased was a refurbished wacom 4X5(?) for about $60 (six or seven years ago). It was tiny. A couple of years ago I upgraded to a 8x6 graphire3 and gave the old one to my bro.

I think I'd go with the Genius MousePen 8X6. It's got a bigger area of use, and it's free shipping, which makes it about the same price as the others (I guess you already considered that into the equation). I don't have any experience with that brand, but the reviews look good.

I got a Wacom bamboo fun for 90$ and it's sleek design and quality is worth it.

And It's not smart to go cheap on this kind of thing when just 20$ more means it's guaranteed to work well.

Best of luck ^^

the thing is since i live in an island, i need to pay a service like UPS to bring stuff here and i have to pay a release fee, so i'm already paying a decent ammount for the thing.

If i didn't had to, i would totally increase my price range.

Dude, that sucks. Could you get a friend/relative to receive the tablet and pick it up from them outside the island?

Thats a bummer about the price, but I have to agree with Skullbie.

Save a little longer and pay the extra to get the wacom. I understand its already expensive to you, but that's just the thing, why spend all that money and get sub-par product? Wait a little longer, save a bit more, and go for the wacom.

I have a intuos 3 4x6 which serves me pretty well. I got it as a gift for christmas last year and it's all I really need. Unfortunately, it also cost something like $250 all told. Maybe someone you know might be willing to get you an early birthday present so long as you're willing to get less gifts.

Definitely save up and go for a wacom bamboo if you have to buy it yourself though. At the very least it will last you a lot longer and work better. Which should make up for the extra cost right there.
