I've owned my wacom for a few years now to help me at university. So far I've had no problems and it's helped me no-end. Before using the tablet I struggled editing in Photoshop with my laptop touch pad and optical mouse. Having a pen, helps create a natural flow as if drawing on paper. Obviously though, the enhancement of the quality of your digital media will depend on your initial drawing ability. - So don't expect to become Da Vinci overnight. However, the tablet is also a tremendous help for editing photographs. Whether, airbrushing photos or cutting pieces in/out; having the to-the-millimetre precision is a brilliant help that a mouse cannot deliver. In this case drawing capability isn't too essential; more a steady hand. When looking online at tablets I did at first have my reserves about drawing on my desk with the effect showing on my screen. I considered getting an all in one tablet with a screen. In the end though, I am glad I got this one and I got along with it well from the start. (Nothing to do with the price of an all-in-one!) The edition I got also came with an Airbrush pen which really does give a fairly realistic feel and control of a real airbrush, although I wouldn't say it is essential as you can use the pen to the same avail.
