    Honestly a tablet usually is not the best choice for 3D software unless you are using something like ZBrush or Mudbox or are painting textures in Mari or Photoshop or something. Its too hard to precisely select vertices, isoparms, and other things used in 3D software with a pen tablet.

    That being said if you really want a tablet Wacom is usually the best choice. They do have some special tablets (or at least used to) for architectural type stuff that has a crosshair on the mouse.

    I myself have a Wacom Intuos 4 Wireless and love it.

    I second the Cintique... the 3d guys in my office all use the large ones.
