AipTek HyperPen Tablet
Strengths: (1)It is very cheap compare with WACOM tablet. (2)It is large (12x9)
Weakness: (1)Pen is too cheap. (2)Mouse is useless if you have a good optional mouse (3)Wish they remove mouse. Use saved money to make a better pen (4)The software support is not good.
I purchase it from amazon.com with about $120.
The software in the CDROM is useless. You can download the new version from their website. But their driver is still bad to support microsoft onenote and Adobe photoshop CS2.
I find the Trust brand tablet using the same hardware. So I download and install Trust Tablet driver. Now I can use all function correctly.

Strengths: nice layout. pen works fine -- however I've used it ONLY under XP. lots of software that comes with it -- all works as described. As a pointing device, it also works well.
Weakness: none. the pen is not as accurate as I would have liked -- but for $100 -- I'm not complaining.
This is a good buy -- at least it has worked well for me. If you are looking for a REAL digitizing pad -- take a look at the ACECAD device -- it provides incredible resolution.

Just got mine for $99
Strengths: Large area and inexpensive
Weakness: Mouse is useless and not needed.
I found mine on sale for $99, great deal on a 12x9 tablet. I have been using it in Photoshop CS2 without any issues. The screen mapping works well, I have a dual monitor configuration as well. No issues. Seems solid so far.

Weakness: driver and software incompatable with Windows 98 and Me. Goes completely bezerk when used with Photoshop. Worthless tech support.
I have had this tablet 4+ months now and have yet to get it to work with my system. I have tried it on 3 different computers running Windows Me and 98.

I have had this tablet 4+ months now and have yet to get it to work with my system. I have tried it on 3 different computers running Windows Me and 98. Movement of the pen 25% of the tablet moves the cursor all the way across the monitor screen and there is no response to the pen side buttons. The pen also makes Photoshop go completely crazy. I have tried numerous reinstalls and updates of the driver and software without solving the problem. I have gotten no response to e-mail requests for help. When I got ahold of a tech rep on the phone after 4 tries, I was just told the problem was with my system and a request to replace or repair the tablet was refused. Don't buy this piece of garbage!
