I had a small wacom intuos draw and just upgraded to the XP-Pen DECO 03. It is amazingly nice. I researched it prior to purchase and it was highly recommended even by XP-Pen DECO 03 users for new purchasers. Huge surface area and intuos pro level specs, the stylus is battery-free and wireless which recognize 8192 pressure levels . Plus it was only $100 shipped. I can definitely vouch for it being on par, myself. 10x5.62 active area is very nice, plus it has programmable hot keys. The wacom intuos draw isn't as big.
