I know there not as good, but worth it?? any actual reasons why this is not as good would be good?
I do some picture editing and use Photoshoip a bit but never used a tablet, so wonder if its worth me going for a Wacom as a first one or this would be fine?

Can't really comment on the Trust one but Wacom tablets are excellent. I do a lot of Photoshop work and resisted buying one until last year when a friend lent me his for a few days... I put an order in for my own within 24 hours. I did have a cheapy Median one (that used Trust drivers) a few years ago but it was rubbish as a lot of essential features couldn't be made to work on my Mac.

What sort of features? I am will be using it on XP & Windows 7 so wondering if it would be an issue on them. Dam I wish i had used one before

Well the main problem was that I couldn't get pressure sensitivity to work but I will emphasise that from what I read this was only a problem when trying to get it to work with a Mac (and an older G5 PowerPC at that) - if had been running Windows then wouldn't have been a problem plus it was a different tablet from this one (it just used Trust drivers).
I'd say that £15 was probably worth taking a punt on but I'd have a look round for some reviews other than the Argos ones to make sure. I expect if you went straight for a cheaper Wacom tablet and weren't happy with it you would probably get most of your money back selling it on.

Thanks for that I have been trying to find reviews on it but there is no model number so i will guess its a Trust TB-5300 Slimline Design USB Graphics Tablet that looks the same (hope so) and it seems to have good reviews so thanks for helping
