Wacom – or not?

I started looking into a graphic’s tablet and started w. the only name I’d heard – Wacom. It seems like from what I’m reading that unless you now buy the Intuos pen and touch line you don’t get what the older Bamboo line came with. They talk about lack of erasers and touch on the new Bamboos. On the website the Bamboo pad looks more like an old imouse pad I had. I thought I liked the idea of wireless especially so I could sit back and not draw like I sit at the desk but people talked about cord fails from the movement or lag from the wireless that cost extra until you get to the higher priced models.

I started looking on ebay. Then read about Monoprice tablets and some guy named Frenden and how much more you get for your money. I could just put all this looking away until Black Friday too. I haven’t looked at all these yet Huion, Monoprice, Turcom, and Ugee

Have any of you tried other graphic tablets in comparison to the big Wacom. I’d appreciate any thoughts.

In an older 2013 post I read you had to install wacom drivers to use other tablets in PS, but I’m guessing all that changes too. I’ve pretty much out ruled a new Bamboo. I’ll either get an older Bamboo, Intuos or a different company. I do need it to work with PS CS5 though.
