I'm thinking about getting a Wacom Bamboo Tablet for editing pics. Anyone have suggestions, tips, reviews, or horror stories please let me know. There's not much info on the web that don't sound like adverts.

Thanks For All Yall's comments.
I got my Bamboo Create for a B-day present just about 4 days ago. I hear, all the comments about getting used to it. It's definitely a learning curve. I've found that I can use my mouse and pad at the same time, which comes in handy when you want to switch back and forth.
My one complaint with the pad is it doesn't have a default position of the cursor. I would like it to go to center at least.
I will reiterate my need for the pad was for editing pics only. Perhaps doing some art history brush work...HeHe
I recently purchased a Wacom Intuos 5 tablet (small). It is unique in that you can use it a s a pen tablet or a track pad. Works with pen OR you fingers. I'm forcing myself to use it as much as possible. The Photoshop guys (NAPP) use them all the time, so I am attempting to emulate their approach. We'll see what happens.
I've been thinking about it and actually all I need it for is erasing, cloning , and perhaps painting.
I'll get it soon and let everyone know my experience with it.......
THANKS EVERYONE FOR YOUR REPLIES (Not Shouting , Emphasizing Thanks).
I actually have one you could have for the postage, if I could find it. While doing photo editing, I found that I was constantly putting down the stylus and picking up the mouse for some things the mouse did better, then putting down the mouse.....well you get the idea. It worked well, but unless I could learn to work the mouse with my left hand it was too much trouble. And, by the way, if I happened to set a piece of paper on the tablet my PC went beserk.
I have an Intuos and a HanWang. The HanWang lets me write Chinese characters and the software has amazing character recognition. It is about 5.5 inches by 4.75 inches. If they are both connected, I can use either for writing, or for editing photos. The Intuos is much larger so it is a little better for some fine detail, and unlike the HanWang, the pen is not wired. The Intuos is pressure sensitive; press harder, get a wider line, which is useful for some things. Usually I edit with a track ball instead. Editing with the Intuos takes some practice and I don't edit enough.
My HP desktop with a 27 inch monitor and my Sony 15.5 inch laptop. It's perfect for my desktop and feels big for my laptop. I believe size doesn't really matter all too much for photography. I'm considering getting the small or medium Intous for my laptop when I decided to spend the money. It's really a good thing to have honestly. I used to spend a few hours cleaning up a scanned black and white image and now it takes about an hour or less.
Thanks Dawn, Where can I go to get that?
I have been using a Genius tablet for some time now. It is a basic editing tablet and cheaper than the Wacom. At the time I bought it, it was all I could afford. It has served me well.
