If you have the money, go for it. Want to get one myself, but to much for me at the moment.
Making do with my old "Trust 1200" Tablet, working area for my tablet is 30cm x 23cm. also
not as many bell and whistles as the Wacom but I'm happy with it. Only problem comes when
you try to buy replacement wireless pens. For the Trust I pay between £10 / £20. Wacom are
a lot more.
Lot's of write-ups on the net.

I've heard about Wacom's tablets in an art forum on NewGrounds.com.
Then I've learnt that many use it, like PLOG on his non BT works...

I have a small Wacam, and I would recommend saving the $2000 US to get the 22" Cintiq. :P

Even the $1000 for the 12" one would be money well spent. There is nothing like actually drawing directly on the image you're looking at.

I'm sure you are right, but at the moment (and for the near future), I've got cash
to buy only the intuos-large. You know, without electricity I wount be able to draw on it at all :lol:

I get by just fine with the medium intuos. You can see some of my work here (still need to upload a few)... http://www.710design.us/gallery/Illustr ... album&id=3

Just about everything in the illustration gallery was done using my tablet at some point in the process.

Personally I think you can get carried away spending a ton of cash with marginal return on investment, but everyone has their own likes and dislikes (and budgets for that mater).
