    I use a 9x12 and I've found it to be too big for most of the stuff I do - but i do love it, especially using the pen and its sensitivity.

    If I were to get one again, I'd go with the 6x8 I think.

    I've used the cheap (100 buck one) and it works dandy. The others were just too large, plus with the smaller one I can carry it around w/my ti book. So, I guess it really depends on your budget and how large your deskspace is.

    I do, haven't used it much (driver is a bit messed up, but only if you use Hotspots). It does work well ($99), and I drew this

    same here. i bought it on ebay because it was super cheap, but it's pretty big and ungainly... the 6x8 is probably the way to go.

    personally tho, i'm a lot more adept at using the mouse to draw directly on the computer. the other designers on the job think i'm abosolutely crazy since they all have wacoms and i'm just pushing around this giant kensington mouse...

    3x4 is nice...

    3x4 is good too, haven't tried the 6x8.
