If I could find 9 other artists who want them, we could get these 17" LCD graphics tablets for $900 each.

As opposed to Wacom's 17" LCD graphics tablet at $2,000 each. Same features.

I'm so annoyed by Wacom's grotesque overpricing that I don't think I could ever buy one again, even though I love using graphics tablets.

Wacom holds patents on some elementary principles of tablet digitization and uses them to shut out competition. Their profit margins are unreal. They charge $1600 minimum for an LCD tablet, but a guy named Drew made his own Cintiq-like LCD tablet for $200 out of old Wacom digitizer and a regular LCD.

I've thought about making my own, but I'd like to support Wacom's competition and get the P-Active linked above, or the Adesso CyberTablet M17 (but it's more pricey and I don't know about the quality, whereas I have a firsthand report from an artist that the P-Active tablet is on par with Wacom.)

Hi,

Just discovered this tablet on Ebay and I'm trying to find out how it compares to Wacom. Did you wind up buying one of these and if so, what do you think? The translation on their website is rather poor so I'm a bit wary but if I could find some people to recommend it from personal experience that would definitely alleviate the concern.

Thanks!
