A tablet is a huge help in a sculpting app like mudbox or zbrush,no comparison really.
As far as which tablet to buy it's really about how much you want to pay, you really need one with a pressure sensativity though and you can't go much wrong with a Wacom but there are some cheap tablets that do quite well but simply don't have the programing functionallity ect.

Ohhh yes, a tablet makes all the difference, I tried to use a mouse with Zbrush for a bit, it was like using a brick to fold paper.

I got a cheap trust tablet for about 20-25, ive had it for about a year now and ive had no problems with it at all, and it goes to and from uni every day, when it does give up i'll invest in a wacom.

a nice size is a A5

Not to big not to small.

the bigger you go, the more you have to move your arm. And i have figured with my A5 i can just rest my palm, and start drawing.

I have not tried smaller ones, well i did but not long enough to see if its useful.
