I am lucky enough to have a 4x5, 6x8, and 12x12.
the 4x5 is great for replacing a mouse. Doing illustrations is tough.
The 6x8 fits nicely on the desk or in my lap and is good all around. I also
use a puck instead of a mouse here.
The 12x12 is great for freehand drawing, you can really get into those long
strokes, (especially noticable with painter). The drawback is moving around
the screen takes a lot of arm movement since the tablet is so large and you
also need the desk space for it.
hope the info helped
