    Default Graphic tablet - Touch or no touch?

    Hello,

    I already tried zbrush two years ago with my mouse and it was okay for rough shapes. But I always found it hard to do detailing with the mouse only so I am thinking of getting a graphic tablet.

    Now I don't want to spend too much money for my first tablet. First I want to see how much I'll use it.

    For drawing only I think I wouldn't need touch, but I am not sure if this also applies to zbrush. What would you recommend me?

    Do you have a trackball or are you dragging your mouse all over the desk? Tablets are great for about anything graphics related.

    I am using a mouse atm but I meant something different. Both tablets that I have posted are equalivent. They only differ about the touch functions, the first tablet only works with a pen. The second has multi touch support like
    Scroll, zoom, rotate, and swipe.

    Do you think I need multi touch support?

    You could try Monoprice tablet. I don't have it myself but I kept reading a lot of good things about it. Considering it's really cheap and sturdy, I would be myself really interested to try it alongside my Intuos5. Even though I have Wacom for years I am currently feed by all these problems on Windows 8.

    I hope that helps. I would ask for anyone who has Monoprice to write a bit about their experiences with this particular brand.

    Default Screen Drawing tablet

    Chiming in with a XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro Screen Drawing tablet 22" . I use it for Maya, Zbrush, and digital painting.

    I use it at home for the last year and didnt have any problem with it so far. I know this model is not in your choices, but if the quality of the XP-Pen model you're looking for is on par with the Artist 22E Pro , it should be good for zbrush and maya stuff.
