Any information on how you like them, etc would be greatly appreciated.
I've had mine for several years and it works great. Takes a bit of time to get used to but makes certain types of editing in PS much easier. The model I have is about 8x6 and came with a wireless mouse and a pen. The pen is pressure sensitive, so the harder you press, the more prominent is the effect (and that does take getting use to).
Some day, when I have more money I want to get the monitor version of the tablet, where the monitor is actually the tablet and you just tilt the screen down to whatever working angle you want and paint right on the surface.
