This is a thread to discuss all kinds of digital drawing hardware: non-display graphics tablets, pen display tablets, portable tablets and more.

>What should I buy?
State your:
>Budget
>Location
>Type (display? non-display? portable?)
>Size (in inches)
>Other information
>Previous equipment

If you have any additional questions, ask them.

>Recommended tablets:

Intuos 3 - Best budget tablet.
Intuos Pro M - The best non-display tablet.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite - Budget portable display tablet. Very solid drawing experience with Wacom EMR tech.
Used iPad Pro 2nd Gen 12.9" - Best option for a display tablet.
Used Cintiq 22HD - The only worthwhile large display tablet
Galaxy Tab S7+ - Good premium alternative to an iPad Pro

>Avoid:

XP-Pen, Huion, Gaomon and every other Chinese brand - Poor build quality, lackluster pens, broken tilt, struggles to register light pressure, horrible customer support and the displays are not calibrated. All Chinese brands are basically the same because they're all centralized. Also watch, Chinese companies shill HARD on /ic/. Check out the webm to understand how bad they are.
Microsoft Surface Pro - The N-Trig digitizer means you will always get wobbly lines.
Lenovo - Bad drawing performance.

Hello! I wanted to post a review of anyone is indecisive. I bought the galaxy tab s6 lite after you guys spoke so highly of it and I highly recommend it. It's cheaper on amazon than it is on the samsung website. This is my first tablet but I already see my art shooting forward in quality. This was one of the first sketches I made. It may not be fantastic by ic standards but this is one of the best portrait sketches I've made. 10/10 super smooth and portable. Thank you guys for this great recommendation
>>
I'm using a Gaomon tablet, would not agree with you. It works fine for its price
>>
>>5124686
Using Huion.
OP is a schizo.
>>
got my first tablet a few days ago
is it a bad idea to form a reliance on stroke smoothing? this tablet was very cheap and it's kind of slick and hard to keep lines straight

What do you all think of the Huion HS610? $70, 8k sensitivity, up to 60* angle support...

Certainly beats the process of taking pictures of artwork with my phone and sending it to my laptop.

>>5124621
Your tastes are garbage.
>>
>>5124970
Outdated. Get the HS611. Not the direct user, but I can tell that it's good.
>>
My galaxy tab arrived to day, much faster than I expected.
>>
Ah fuck, I would get S7+ right away if only csp was a one time purchase
>>
>>5125015
>>5124970
It should be just fine. the only difference between HS610 and HS611 is a physical ring vs a touch slider but everything else should be very much identical.
>>
>>5125049
frankly CSP on it is so good I'm actually gonna pay the fucking subscription. the fact I get paid for my art once in a while makes it OK
>>
how better is S7 plus compared to S6 lite actually? I've been thinking if saving up for almost triple the price tag is worth the purchase
>>
>>5125097
I compared the tow in the store and it's not like i had the S6- for a long time, but i got a feeling that S7+ is the one really worth having.

S6- looked small, dim and didn't seem to respond all that quick.

S7+ is the minimal size I would consider workable, seriously the tablet itself is a little smaller than an A4 sheet, and the screen is even smaller than that, the display is top stuff, sometimes i just open some random HDR shit from youtube to bask in it's glory, high resolution is also great, tiny tiny little scrathes with a thin pen in csp really feel like making tiny little hatching IRL, the pen is good, the felt-rubbery tip creates just the right amount of friction on the glass after you sufficently touch it with your sweaty hands, no joking, it feel perfect after you rub your skin on the glass, and the performance leaves nothing to complain about, CSP on windows is an unoptimised singletreaded POS but on android it draws better, runs better and even applis the cage transform better than it does on my overclocked Ryzen 2700X

Frankly it's good, i don't really draw at PC anymore. using touch only for controls is inconvenient, but drawing with a good pen on a GOOD screen feels special, sometimes i really feel like i'm drawing with a real fine-liner for real.
>>
Is blue light something I should be concerned about? Should I get a screen protector that blocks/filters it, or don't bother?
>>
>>5124621
is there a good paper texture for that?
>>
>>5125251
if you block blue light you're going to fuck up all color correction

>>5125251
Don't bother. It's a total meme. More of a marketing thing than anything else.

LMFAO
How many people have actually cucked themselves by buying a 3?

If you need a modern Wacom the screenless One is small and cheap. You don't need a big dick Wacom unless your school/ job requires it.

>>5125483
>doesn't know how to read a pattern and make decisions for himself
in 3 videos you can tell if a tablet has wobble, driver, or color issues consistently.
Also, try to watch more than one review from more than one person? Coming here and listening to OP about nearly Obsolete pen tech helping you "make it" when he himself doesn't draw, seems to also be "listening to sponsored reviewers."
>>5125503
It's not ancient? I'd reccomend something in the same price range that's good from Wacom, but there's isn't. They're budget level isn't worth investing in if you're serious and broke. Wacom is only worth it at the pro level and not a single 3rd world or Amerifag in this thread can afford.
There's no use in fighting with older drivers and a smaller drawing space just to have this Wacom Clout.

Has anyone used an iPad and like... A kamvas or something. I absolutely detest how the iPad feels. I like my intuos a lot, but wanted to try a screenless tablet other than an iPad
>>
>>5125527
Ask me how I know you dont use drawing tablets

>>5125554
Its simple, for screenless go huion xp pen, for budget display go huion xp, for portable display go ipad and for top notch display go wacom cintiq pro

I'm thinking of getting the BenQ PD2700Q 1440P monitor, good choice? I'm open to other 1440p monitor recommendations, I will be working purely digital, no printing or other physical color dependent work.
>>
>>5125634
With the kamvas, the screen feels... softer? With the ipad its very clearly a stick against a hard surface, and I'm constantly afraid of scratching the screen or snapping the pencil. The kamvas feels really nice to draw on, and is probably similar to how the intuos feels. feels like a plastic nib on a plastic surface.
>>
>>5125714
>Its simple, for screenless go huion xp pen
Are they actually better than a similarly sized Intuos 3 though? The only major advantage of the newer tablets I see is work area vs physical size of the device.
>>
>buy display tablet
>put it on table in front of monitor
>now i have a screenless tablet
tell me why this isnt the best solution?
i just use my display tablet normally but have it in front of a second monitor so i get two views
>>
>>5125736
Better USB connectors (important), driver and warranty support and yeah, bigger size and still cheaper
>>
>>5125748
Whats the point? A large screenless is still cheaper than most display tablets
>>
>>5125771
best of both worlds
easier lineart
can switch if my arm is tired or i need to refresh my brain
>>
New to non display tablets, is the Intuos M good enough size or should I get the Intuos L? Does the drawing surface have to closely match monitor size?
>>
>>5125785
L
you want it to be close enough to have some degree of accuracy and let you do longer strokes
>>
>>5125766
>Better USB connectors (important)
What do you mean? Easy to fix if it should break and you aren't retarded. Fair enough if it is a problem, but it wouldn't be for me.
People shit on the older micro usb huions as well.
>driver
People always talk shit about chink drivers though (more so huion than xp-pen, it seems). The Intuos 3 works for now (on Windows, at least). Who knows about the future, and that goes for chink tablets as well.
>still cheaper
A chink tablet would be 2-3 times as expensive for me.
>>

then buy it dude, just make sure to remove all the mold, cum stains and pubes from the previous owner

Get a bluetooth keyboard, num pad, or gamepad to use for shortcuts.
I use a 8bitdo Zero 2, and it works great. Even better if you're willing adjust the layout with a key mapper.

I don't know, whatever works best for you. I prefer drawing on my tablet, but I'm not fanatic about methods or tools.

You'd know, wouldnt you.You're used to being belittled I imagine.

>>5125879
The intuos 3 will do its job if you get it, as will 99% of screenless tablets. Its just a dumb thing to recommend when all modern display tablets are cheaper, more capable and have actual driver/warranty support. This is less important for you but theyre finite in number so its a stupid thing to recommend to everyone.
>>
>>5125910
screenless tablets*
>>
>>5125910
Why repeat the same points I addressed here without elaborating? >>5125801
It's not like they're super scarce, but perhaps enough to not be recommended broadly.
>>
>>5125967
>>5125859
>>
>>5124667
what apps you tested? Artflow is really nice for some sketching and basic painting, is very capable with only the free options.
How is the heat? and the battery? the pencil is already perfect so there is no question about it.
Usually the drawing apps dont consume too much of the battery so you should drawing a lot of hours, even more if you don't use other apps at the same time and low the brightness when yoo do sketching
>>
>>5125801
Im not delving into why you should spend 30 or 60 dollars or whatever it is. Cheap "shitty" screenless tablets work fine for actual drawing, which is what the whole point is, not a tech circlejerk infused with brand loyalty. The only reason I visit these threads is to make sure beginners dont throw money down the toilet by buying intuos pros when they could get the exact same functionality for a 7th (seventh) of the price.

I personally have used a wacom bamboo pen touch, a huion h610, a huion h610 V2, an xp pen deco pro, an xp pen artist 15.6 pro, a huion kamvas 22 plus and a wacom cintiq 24 pro. And I havent experienced driver, tech, stability or quality issues with any of them. At all. And I could produce the same work with all of them, even though I sent the xp 15.6 pro back because i didnt like the colours/contrast ratio.
Ive heard stories of shitty chink tablets fucking up and Ive heard stories of wacom tablets fucking up. Ive heard of shitty drivers and support from all of these companies. So given that, why the fuck should someone spend half a grand on a non display tablet with a wacom sticker on it.
>>
>>5125320
you can take care if you read a lot or use a lot of normie apps, in windows you can use the night mode wich distord the color and brightness to stress less the eyes. Is really cool for that purpose i've been using that for some months and the difference is noticeable when you turn off the night mode, is good for the previous hours to sleep. But if you're drawing of course is not worth.
>>
>>5125990
Its just you. You've always been alone.

>wacom bamboo pen touch, a huion h610, a huion h610 V2, an xp pen deco pro

thanks for the confirmation bias. the ipad doubles as a great second screen for reference, but fuck I hate drawing on it.

>why the fuck should someone spend half a grand on a non display tablet with a wacom sticker on it.

>>5125801
drivers are ok with the models of recent years. Those were problems of the past. Now almost all the models have numerous updates the first year, and later they update for the major general updates like new GUI or things like that. For example with my deco 03 they update the shit almost every month i think back in the day, fixing every minor thing for 2 years now last month they update the GUI i dont even know why, i think they put more customization for the quick buttons of the tablet and the buttons of the pencil, and improved the option of multiple profiles to have different pressure levels in different programs.

>>5126051
is because the kamvas and xp-pen models have some textured film i think, Ipads are still tablets so they have the same glossy screen that feels plastic, the same way with the Samsung tablets. That's why people tend to use texture protectors films on those
>>
>>5126045
I moved on from my bamboo to get something medium sized, I didnt like to use stabilizer to account for the cramped wristflick/elbow space. Then I got the H610, which worked fine but this was in 2016 and I had to charge the pen. Not the biggest issue though since the battery life was 50 hours or something. I got a new one because I was careless and scratched it up. Got the H610 V2, used that for ages until I scratched it up again, got the xp deco pro to try out the wheel. It worked great but I personally didnt like the surface texture feeling since it was too rough for my strokes, so I went back to the V2. Then I wanted to see how far displays had come in tech so I got the 15.6 pro, it felt great to use but I returned it within my amazon window because the colours couldnt match my main display, went back to the V2. Then I actually did some research and saw the 22 plus which had 100% adobe rgb and a 1200:1 contrast ratio, so I got that. Very cool screen, very impressive for the 500 price. Then I got a new concept art job so I moved my kamvas to work and treated myself to a 24 pro at my home studio, partly as a curiosity to see if wacom pro tablets really are all that, and yeah, its awesome. Feels bullet proof and has a great 4k screen, but I DID have to pay 2 grand for it.

hope you liked my blog

>>5126088
Did you fuck up the chink tablets by just using them or doing something dumb?
>>
>>5126104
not him but I scratched the shit out of my bamboo and old xp-pen deco because I didn't have nibs to replace the busted ones I was using
>>
>>5126104
Doing the dumb, my dude

Id shove it in my backpack, raw and unprotected alongside my laptop, laptop charger etc, throw in my jacket when it was too hot (zippers)
Didnt take long to get little scratches here and there, which was enough to trigger my autism and lead me to buy a new one. When theyre 50 euros, I found it hard to treat them like super valuable tech. I made back the cost 3 times over with my first coom commission I did with it
>>
>>5126113
I see. Thanks for all the input. Didn't know the deco pro texture was much different from the rest of the pack.

Reminder that if you bought a Samsung Tablet, you should get superDisplay. Absolutely essential app for art and utility.

Nah, if you go portable you should go full portable and disconnect from the PC.

You will get the benefits of that new low input lag and the software is actually optimised to run on multiple cores etc.

>>5126157
Clean uninstall the driver, restart laptop

Install the deco pro driver

Restart laptop

Plug in the tablet

Ive never had driver issues with xp, if that doesnt work then I guarantee youre fucking with something or just on a mac. Youre not on a mac are you?

- Uninstall everything (including your previous Wacom drivers, Super Display, anything to do with pen input)
-Disconnect the tablet
-Install just one driver
-Connect the tablet.

Who cares about CSP? superDisplay lets you use SAI on the tablet.
It's also great to be able to use it as a second monitor if you need to, without even drawing at all. It's a great utility app.

Are there any sites to get replacement protectors for my kamvas 16 cheaper than the huion site? I went full retard and pulled off the matte protector with the other film that it came with out the box and while the glass isnt that much of a deal breaker, I really don't want to spend 40 dollars on a replacement

I noticed that they sell some on amazon and theres a model for last years kamvas, but im unsure if it will fit

>>5127650
That'll do it i suppose...

First time drawing so I tried that upside down guy in the general, ples rate.
But anyways I picked up this Intuos Pro M after it collecting dust for the past 2 years. a bit weird looking at the monitor while drawing but its something you just get used to I suppose.
Should I learn to draw starting off with pen and paper or go with the tablet since I already have it?

Spend a few days with pen and paper then use the tablet so you don't have to learn the very very fundamentals while also trying to deal with the disconnect of a pen tablet.

Shit, I remembered to uninstall my Wacom driver but completely forgot about Super Display. Uninstalling it as well solved the problem on both my PC and laptop and it's working well, even if I reboot (though on my laptop I lose my configs everytime I reboot which is kinda annoying but tolerable). Thanks a lot! Shame about having to uninstall Super Display tho, it was comfy to use.
And to the anon who asked yeah I'm on Windows, but probably doesn't matter now since the problem was solved

>>
>>5129922
No. But i have a 6 years old galaxy note model. They are really fine. But you maybe could don't like the plastic feel that the screen has, is the same with all tablets, ipads too, since the market target is normies and general consume. So you maybe like to have a screen protector with texture, normally that is all you need, with those protectors you are gonna feel a nice friction, which will feel more natural.

I turn down the brightness too because for sketching you dont really need high light in the screen, and is comfortable to use especially if your eyes get very tired over time. Probably the new tablets include some kind of night mode or things like that.

>>
>>5126432
Artflow is my personal go-to for most work, but there are a few other things worth at least checking out.

Infinite Painter has an interface that's almost as comfy as Artflow (some find it comfier) and a much more powerful brush engine with blending options.

Clip Studio Paint has just about the best brush engine, and is incredibly powerful. It works with bigger canvases (artflow caps out at 6k, and I can work in CSP at 20k). The biggest downside is that it's a subscription, but you get 6 months free to try it, and then it's only like $25 a year.

Krita is in beta, and the UI can bug out pretty bad sometimes, but development is continuing pretty well so it's worth keeping an eye on. It's brush engine is at least as good as the one in CSP, but Krita is completely free. Once the bugs are worked out I expect it to be one of the most used artistic apps on Android.

I'd use CSP and Krita for everything if they didn't have desktop user interfaces that feel kinda clunky on a tablet.

Yes, Is equal.
Those galaxy models have an association with Wacom, they include a special layer in the screen, that's why they have an active stylus that don't need batteries (some new models need recharge, but that is for some specific gadgets of the stylus, like a mini camera i think that they have in some phones models, but they still work normally without those functions if you don't recharge the battery).
Old models like mine (galaxy note 2014) has 1024 pressure levels, and is fine for sketching, i prefer more, but is fine for the basic thing. New models have more than 4000 i think, 4096, like any modern stylus, i don't know if they use tilt but i never used that option anyway, is not really necessary.

>>
>>5129998
>Is pressure sensitivity in the level of Wacom pens?

The S-pen feels closer to a bamboo or graphire, but better without the nib wobble and with really good tilt and rotation.
This isn't a springloaded traveling nib like on intuos, but stiff and static there's no inwards travel.

The pressure curve isn't super good, but it stays consistent no matter how you tilt, you'll be comfortable holding it sideways like an actual pencil and the positioning is super laser accurate, the cursor stays exactly under the tip of the nib even if you're hovering horizontally an inch above the tablet.

Another con is that the pressure sensor if super stiff, if you try and press hard enough to get 100% pressure out of it you will break the pen, or the nib, it literally flexes from so much pressure so i use a very steep pressure curve in the software.

Generally the pen is good an I like it, it's different from what and Intuos user would expect, but not bad at all. the accuracy is insredible and the glass is so thin you're going to reely feel like you're drawing on those pixels, there's zero disconnect.
>>
>>5130073
Slightly more responsive pens. Youll notice tiny bits of waggle when using very light pressure on chinese pens, but youd never notice it if you werent actively looking for it. If you were actually drawing or painting you wouldnt notice the difference between the pens and youd accustom to either after a few minutes.
>>
This is the sensible pressure curve for an S pen and even so it's a bit stiff.
>>
>>5130024
Paint tool sai
>>
>>5130113
>if you try and press hard enough to get 100% pressure out of it you will break the pen, or the nib

This is not true in my experience. I've had a Note 4, a Note 8, and a Tab S7+ and I've never had trouble getting full pressure. So far I haven't needed to replace a nib either, though the S7+ I've only had for a bit over a month.

>>5130165
>Paint tool sai
What about it? It's not on Android, and I was responding to a question about what to use on a Tab S6 Lite.

If they've got a good PC for Sai, they can use it with SuperDisplay, but you can't go fully mobile with it without bringing a PC around. Super display is pretty lit if you're home with your PC, though.

... you understand that you're complaining about an adjustable pressure curve right?
>>
>>5130073
The pen nib tolerance. If you draw, having the nib wiggle because the nib is too long and the fit isn't right is the difference between a professional tool and a cheap product designed to milk begs who don't know what they're getting into.
>>
>>5130288
Sure, get a capacitive stylus. Or are you asking about a pressure sensitive one? If it didn't come with one, then NO.

The cheaper tabs lack the internal hardware to support a pressure-sensitive stylus. The stylus is only one component of a two-part system.
>>
>>5130308
Its the exact opposite. You couldnt have spouted more pure irony. Begs who want to get into drawing buy overpriced wacom bullshit because idiots such as yourself shill for them, then they give up on drawing because no gains and put the tablets on ebay. Thats why there are so many of them there.
>>
>>5130293
>... you understand that you're complaining about an adjustable pressure curve right?

Well that leaves me with only 2000 pressure levels to work with.
In other hand that's probably why there were so many in the first place.
>>
>>5130338
CSP has a master pen pressure curve Alt+F+J
>>
>>5130338
That's part of the reason why high pressure levels don't really matter. You can see artists like joel jurion's vids that he's adjusting pressure levels not just between applications but between brushes (also the reason I like seeing artists showing their process not just their canvas).

This is why it's futile to try and copy someone else's curves and brushes, they are doing it by feel, their work-scale and situation. You need to find what works for you and draw, copying another artist's settings doesn't mean its going to work for you. Studying the entire value range of a picasso doesn't mean you can paint like him.

What are general thoughts about VEIKK tablets? I've been contacted if i would like to try one for free testing. Reviews seem okay and while i know the rule of this thread is "Avoid Chinese brands" hey, it's free stuff.

I already have an ipad i'm very happy with, and spare old tablet, so i don't really need their stuff, but on the other hand i wouldn't mind getting it free to for example give it away to a friend after testing, if it's any good.
Do you think it's a good idea? I'm kind of paranoic about giving out my address so it might be safer to decline since tablet is cheap anyway so i'm not really losing much by turning down the offer.

You guys really arent aware how poor your rationale is. If youre paranoid about winnie the pooh, you're already up to your knees because you've bought any electronics. Apple and wacom tablets are manufactured there as well, and guess what they have to agree to to be able to manufacture there. Thats right, the CPP can request literally any information they want from the manufacturers and they have to spill it by law.
>THATS OUTRAGEOUS!
You think. But big tech doesnt give a shit, because its cheaper and increases their profit margins. I hate China as much as any sensible person, but you're a naive hypocrite if you spend 7 times the money on a tablet that was also built there because "the business isnt a chinese one lmao"

>>5131826
In Wacom Tablet Properties, select your pen from the Tool list and then select the Mapping tab.
From Mode, select Pen.
By default, the active area of the device maps to your entire monitor. If you are using more than one monitor, the device maps to all monitors.
CAUTION: If you change the display properties in your computer's display menu, you are also changing the mapping on this tab.

From Screen Area, select which part of your monitor you want the device to map to.
Select Full if you want to map to the entire area of the monitors connected to your computer.
Select Portion if you want to define a section of your monitor to map to. Select the section in any of the following ways:
Under Drag Handles, drag the corners of the red border to define the screen area that you want to map to.
Select Click to Define and use your cursor to select the screen area that you want to map to.
Enter Coordinates in pixels.
Select a Monitor if you want to map to the entire area of a single monitor.
From Tablet Area, select which part of your device that you want mapped to the Screen Area you selected.
The options are similar to the Screen Area options.
Select Force Proportions if you want the vertical and horizontal proportions to be the same on your device as on your monitors.
If you select Force Proportions , when you draw a circle on the device, you see a circle on the display screen, but a portion of the device active area that was previously usable may no longer be usable.
If you do not select Force Proportions, when you draw a circle on the device, you may see an ellipse on the display screen.
Tip: To help you decide which setting to select, watch the red borders of the image on this tab while selecting and unselecting Force Proportions to see how it affects mapping

>>
>>5131809
> make a 3cm stroke on the tablet, it makes a 3cm stroke on screen

that’s what mouse mode is for. Instead of mapping a region of the sensor area to your screen (which can lead to ratio discrepancy), your cursor will track based on the amount of space your stylus travels in the real world. Keep in mind, how the cursor behaves when you lift the stylus is different between mouse and pen mode. Pen mode hops because it is mapping your desktop area. In mouse mode, the cursor will just stop at the last known location of the sensor. It takes a little getting used to but i find it invaluable when drawing faces. I switch so often that i map the toggle between mouse and pen modes to one of my shortcut keys.

I forgot to mention, if you have cursor acceleration turned on in your operating system settings, it may effect the cursor when you’re in mouse mode on the tablet. I have have my acceleration turned off.

the 660P is just useless extra stuff that is a waste of space, don't get the paper edition unless you're going to get it for a decent discount over the the PTH660. If it sounds cool, it isn't. You're going to run out of ink in the pen pretty quickly and getting refills will be expensive relative to buying a regular pen. Then you'll realize you can just draw with a regular pen and paper for cheaper, take a picture of your drawing with your phone, and then trace it over with the your tablet.

Btw, the draw-picture-trace workflow is a pretty effective transition workflow for people new to tablets.

I use a Huion screenless tablet and it works great. Maybe the display tablets have issues, but the screenless ones work like a charm.

If you aren't intelligent enough to use a computer it's nobody else's fault, get an pad i guess, they make the mouses with one button just for you.

i used an intuos pro my entire career and recently got an ipad pro. i wasted so many years trying to draw with that thing. when i got the ipad it was like picking up natural media again. do whatever it takes to get a tablet with a processor and a screen.

I figured it out but it was a real bitch. I filled it with vinegar and baking powder, let it fizzle to eat the green stuff, tried that shit for like an hour and it didn't come loose. Then I tried yanking at the positive terminal facing up with pliers which snapped it off. I got a screw and screwed it right into the exposed AAA battery, which finally popped out after I pried it out with the back of a hammer. It works, but it took me 3 fucking hours and it doesn't turn off. I guess it's better than buying new shit probably?

Buy pic related or try SonarPen - Pressure Sensitive Smart Stylus Pen with Palm Rejection and Shortcut Button. I don't know of any other stylus with pressure sensitivity compatible with Redmi. If you know any, post it.

I'm the anon that posted the sketch originally. Hello! I actually found an app that allows me to connect my tablet to my computer as a moniter and it allows me to use photoshop on my tablet! It's called super display and it's super useful. But I still enjoy using it on the go so I think I'm going to look into krita as that seems to be the one I'm most interested in based on your recommendations.

I use a Huion stylus with a gaomon Mk10 2018 lmao. Works perfectly, they use the same driver apparently. Its great because the gaomon tablet is better than the huions and the huion pen is way better than the gaomon one
>>
>>5135152
just get a transparency sheet or paper and tape it over the sensor area, depends on what kind of work surface you prefer. Either way, no more nibs dissolving.
>>
>>5135493
Would a transparency sheet not have too much of a drag against the pen? I want it to feel smooth like on the intuos 3 and chink tablets, not just for the nib but for the swift gliding feeling
>>
>>5135437
samsung has a close partnership with wacom, s-pens are wacom tech so they're as reliable as the grip pen ...

... comfortability is a different question all together. I'd probably recommend buying those foamy pencil grips everyone used to have in primary school.

all the new models works fine. The shit you see here is just the ocasional post of any person that just buy a defective product. That happens in any product, of any brand, of any country. Even in food there are products that comes with failure checking and have shit inside the package. IPad have cases of defective tablets, Wacom too, is normal, that's why exists warranty.
You will always see people who show how bad the products are because they obviously received a defective model, and they take photos and videos to show it on their favorite social networks or pages associated with the product to release their frustration, usually because they buy it in places where it's a nuisance to apply the right of guarantee, for example in some countries when you buy it online, since the time waste to return the product and have another send to you would frustrate anyone. That's why there are also so many people who draw perfectly with all the models of the brands, because they just have a product that works as it should, and if they bought it in a real physical store, they simply go and change it in one day if it was defective.

As many of people already know, the only differences in this brands are the cosmetic aspect, the quality of the build, a thing that don't really matters if you take the proper care of your devices. And the tech aspect that is mostly differences in the pen tech quality and the display tech that a brand use, but, at this point of the time, the quality of all brands had reach a average decent level in all the products.
Some years ago you could easy tell that wacom have all the market and that was the only way to digital drawing, now that's simply not true, you can work perfectly with Apple, Huion or XP-pen without problems.

Parblo are rebranded Ugee tablets, Xp-pen and Huion are owned by them.
Dunno about gaomon, but it seems like they use Ugee components too.
>>
>>5135514
huion and xp were the low quality and cheap alternatives few years ago, now they raised the quality and is decent, like if you buy a mid tier phone, perfectly fine for the task. The now low tiers are those rebrands tablets like Ugee or Gaomon, or Genius.
>>
>>5135501
yeah, a transparency sheet is the easiest and cheapest way and easiest to get method for that no-friction feel if that's what you are looking for.

So I just got a cintiq pro. Does anyone else experience this weird interference when they put the pen close to the tablet? It's like a weird flickering in an isolated area whenever the pen gets near the screen. It's driving me insane. I'm not sure if this is a driver issue or what the hell it is. I've returned one already thinking it was a faulty screen but its happening on my replacement too. All my drivers are up to date, connected through display port using a GTX 3080. Using most current version of windows 10. Plugged into it's own outlet
>>
>>5135759
Let me guess, you got the 16 inches model

>>5135798
Nah, the 24".

Did you also get a replacement pen?

I asked in iPad general and I guess I'll ask here too.
What am I missing out on if I buy an iPad 8 and first gen pencil instead of an Air 4 with gen 2 pencil?
The first option saves $285 dollars.
>>
>>5135917
Yeah. I ordered it from amazon so I returned it and got a complete replacement.
>>
>>5135931
Try it on another computer.
>>
>>5135963
Yah, currently trying to get ahold of one. Will update with results.
>>
>>5135963
>>5135980
Seem to be getting the same issue plugged into another computer. I don't understand what this is. Is it normal to have some sort of interference present on these things? Last one I had was like 12 inches lol back in 2010 but sold it cuz it was too small. That never had this issue. Ipads don't have this issue either...
>>
>>5136029
If you try a different cable and it persists then it's 100% the tablet.
Or maybe it's a driver feature, try digging deep into Wacom settings.
>>
>>5132573
I have similar computer specs and was thinking of getting a XP-Pen, appreciate the heads up on the issues.
>>
>>5136052
Unfortunately, I have tried every cable available. In the middle of fiddling with settings as we speak, so far no change. Any way to downgrade drivers and see if that fixes anything? What are the odds of getting two tablets with identical issues like this.

I want to get a tablet with a screen for about $300, I saw the galaxy s6 is recommended in the OP, is it indeed the best tablet for that price range? im guessing it would have its own unique software and doesnt use the same stuff you can use for a computer, right?
>>
>>5136462
oh yeah for some context im using a huion chink tablet, while its not bad when it works and has a lot of shortcut buttons which is nice the hand/eye disconnect feels a bit limiting to me and when the tablet gives me issues its infuriating.
>>
>>5136462
>>5136465
If you value portability then yeah it is. You can also get a Kamvas 13 for $264 with stand.
What kind of issues is your current tablet giving you?
>>
>>5136471
aside from the problems with being screenless, it does this thing sometimes where if i try to move my mouse it snaps to the top left corner of the screen over and over, this is made worse by the fact that if i try to use the pen at the extremes of the screen, say the very top, it jumps around a lot and clicks automatically, making it almost impossible to use, forcing me to rely on the mouse, giving me the issue from before. also, it sometimes just doesnt work when i plug it in, and i have to keep unplugging and replugging it until it does. portability is nice but not terribly important, id value convenience over that personally, i have a big desk so space really isnt an issue.
>>
>>5136462
Go with the Tab s6 Lite and get the superdisplay app, it'll allow you to use it with your pc. Build quality is good and it's portable too.
>>
>>5135930
magnets? j/k

There are some spec differences but is it worth $285, probably not. Just like with a lot of tech, real-world performance difference is minimal. If you've had a chance to go into the store and you like the 8th gen ipad then go for it.

What's worse is the time wasted on indecision when you could be drawing. If you don't like it, you can always return in after a week.
>>
>>5136480
Hmm, cursor fighting and inconsistent connectivity... I'd ask support for experimental drivers if I were you.
>>
>>5135437
Spen doesnt require charging.
The battery in it is for the remote gimmick and gesture but it can draw forever without being charged
>>
>>5135759
Ha ha gweilo buy an xp pen next time.

Did you calibrate while holding your pen in the way you usually do while drawing?
What tablet is that?
