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.

Facts Summary!

- Easy Installation.
- You get Painter Essentials 3 free!
- Adapts the thickness and tone of line - respondent to pressure.
- Doesn't take up too much space! - Fits neatly onto my drawing board!
- The shortcut keys and scolls are (or at least to me were) surprisingly handy.
- Lets you sit back and relax with you tablet on you lap. - Depending on you monitor size and your eyesight! You may want to lean in for detail.
- Aesthetically pleasing - Looks a treat on my desk.

Hope this helps :-)
