Never heard of them. Wacom bamboo sure is cheaper.

On Amazon, it looks like they are a few dollars of each other.

Have you used the Wacom unit?

I've used a few Wacoms. They're relatively good consumer grade, ISTR they a
lso do pro grade under another name.  

Good:  
USB connector supported on 3 sides but not on 4th. (I think newer ones are  
directly wired in.) Lack of 4th side support meakes them vulnerable to dama
ge if not used on a desk or used near the desk edge.
Great support, linux, win, etc, unlike other makes
Work well

The downsides are really common to any graphics pad:
Misplace that pen once and you'll be without it for who knows how long

Beware of Wacom's baby pads that only cover part of the screen, I hate the  
thing. Half the time you want to go somewhere and run out of pad space, and
 have to make the approved flicking gesture, no that's not good enough try  
again, then you can go there. Repeat the next time etc. Horrid. OTOH I know
 someone that has one and likes it.

Also I wouldn't buy the big ones. 7" or so of working surface is just right
. Bigger really adds nothing but twice the arm waving.

Always keep the mouse for backup! You will need it. Graphics pads aren't th
e perfect answer, but overall they beat mice.

 The Apple Pro with its amazing pencil
 appears to be best for making drawings.

 Traces appear immediately exactly under
 the pencil.  Zoom works for high detail.
 The drawings can be arbitrarily large.

 But I'm a fan of 0.5mm HB lead & paper,
 so I'm waiting for the next rev to buy.

Is it better than the MS Surface? The stylus  
on that is pretty good (plus it runs Windows
apps). At least it seems good playing with
it at the store.

never used it. Looks chinese cheap and fake. I use a Wacom tablet. They're  
tried and true, and have been for decades.
