I have an M-Audio Axiom 49 key and I have been more than happy with it.
 Plug and play has been my experience.

I have a Wacom Tablet from 2004.  It works but I find I don't really use
it all that often.  I am not sure how well the newer devices are
supported.  Contrast this with my M-Audio Axiom, I use it almost daily
right now, so obviously I would recommend the keyboard over the tablet :)
