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

If you have any additional questions, ask them.
Remember to ignore all chinese shills.

>I'm thinking of getting the Wacom One, should I buy it?
Fuck off retard. Ask a better question.

>Recommended tablets:

>Intuos 3
Best screenless tablet. Look for one on Craigslist or Ebay.
>Intuos 4, 5 & Pro
Also good options. Will burn through your nibs.
>Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite
Budget portable display tablet. Very solid drawing experience with Wacom EMR tech, but a small 10.4" display area.
>Used iPad Pro 2nd Gen 12.9"
Best option for a display tablet.
>Galaxy Tab S7+/S8+
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. Check out the webm to understand how bad they are. Also watch out, Chinese companies shill HARD on /ic/; they do a lot of samefagging and frequently hurl personal insults.
>Microsoft Surface Pro
The N-Trig digitizer means you will always get wobbly lines.
>Lenovo
Bad drawing performance because they're not designed with art in mind.
>Cintiqs & other desktop display tablets
Overpriced, prone to problems and will lead to back posture issues.
>iPads (brand new)
>iMacs and Macbooks
Never buy this garbage under any circumstance. It's a locked ecosystem with rubbish hardware you can't upgrade.

Hi, people. I asked here about xencelabs tablets a while ago, but I was told to wait for reviews because it was just released. So since few months passed- what is general consensus on this tablet vs Intuos Pro?

PLEASE ANSWER, I need to buy a new pen for school. I have kamvas 13 can I use the pw507 for it? The pw517 is more expensive and I can't afford it but I'm literally going to fail if I can't buy it immediately, so no time to save

I'm looking at this listing and just hoping it actually will work for my tablet. I can't dish out 80 dollars to buy the 517 and just pray its better. It says kamvas 13 pro but I have the normal kamvas 13

Just bought an used Intuous Pro M after almost 2 years of using the Xp-Pen 15.6 pro. Adapting to screenless was way less painful than I thought it would be, quite enjoy drawing like this now.
At first I had a scare and thought the Wacom was malfunctional with some sporadic lag, but all I had to do was first uninstall the Xp-Pen drivers. They don't work well together.
Quality wise I must admit that Aaron was right, I kneel. The pen feels way better, specially on the pressure curve. Now while the difference is pretty clear to me, I still believe the chinese ones are more than enough for most people since the real bottleneck will still be your hand. There is just not enough reason to pay a premium if you have not already been committed to the craft for a good while. Now if you're fine with buying used and the price is comparable, just go with Wacom.
>>
>>6050986
>>6048875
Oh yeah I should make it extra clear that my xp-pen did have all the issues from the webm, except maybe tilt? Never used tilt so I can't say for sure. I have no idea if their new pen tech fixed any of these issues or if it is just marketing.
>>
My cintic16 (not a pro one) started to get some scratches after a year of usage. The scratches themselves does not effect the pen connection or flow when I am drawing the lines, and can be seen really only when the direct light is shining on them. But my OCD is messing with my head.

I also have an Galaxy S7+, but I rarely use it for drawing because I am used to CSP and I am a big cheapskate and don't want to pay a subscription for it, when I have a permanent license on my PC and I am too retarded to set it up properly so my gorilla hands won't drag the canvas.

Is there a way to fix the scratches on my cintic or should I just switch to my S7+ and pay a sub for CSP?

I always say this
If u live in the west , don't buy XP Pen/ huion

Cause all of my artist friends here in Asia has no problems using XP pen

Funny since
I'm using the intuos pro too and the pressure curve is jumpy as all hell

Have to set it to firm just to have a fake consistent gradual pressure on my pencil strokes

Huion finally released official drivers for linux. Messed around with it a little, it disconnects randomly and there doesn't seem to be a way to calibrate the screen, but it's still in the beta test phase so that should get sorted out eventually.

Hmm, my pencil strokes are fine, I see no jumps. Could be a brush setting perhaps? I use CSP default pencil.
It's with inks that I can clearly see how sensitive the tip can be, which is a good thing.
>>
>>6051513
Does the cintiq pen work with the Wacom One?
>>
after a few months of using my xp pen tablet 22 pro i can safely tell that this >>6048875 is false or i'm lucky, on the other hand the stylus keeps disconnecting itself pretty regularly wich is extremely frustrating, i've heard that unplugging the usb helps but what i do is that i just wait and tap the screen until it works again (wich usually takes a couple seconds).
it seems to be a recurring problem among xp pen users from what i've read, so that alone justifies not buying it in my opinion, at 500 bucks you want something that works perfectly.

now for something different but related, i have a question; my tablet has scratches from my many drawing sessions so i wanted to know if 22 pro's are provided with integrated screen protectors at purchase or if i permanently fucked my screen?
>>
>>6051519
do u live in the west? if yes dont buy from their official store un less they have a warehouse in your country/state
>>
>>6051658
Try a different usb port. Sounds like yours is shorting out. If that doesnt work get a new cord. I believe 22 pro has a scren protector
>>
>>6048875
I've had an xp-pen for a year now, there was some more calibration and fiddling involved compared to a wacom out of the box but I have no problems with it once I adjusted my settings properly. Honestly I think it's a decent tablet for its price. Around 350$ for a display vs $200 for a wacom non-display.

Already have a 16" XP-Pen. Have to be travelling for about a week at a time and tried bringing it alongside my Samsung Tab A with S Pen (the 2019 ones, before I had my current XP-Pen). Realized it's kinda terrible for heavy use with CSP now. Also I have a Note 10 Plus with CSP, so had an idea of getting an android compatible tablet... and so far it's only Kamvas 12 (which I researched seems to be terrible at android compatibility) or Wacom One 13" (a bit too pricy for an android-companion tablet. I already have a main drawing display)

I could also reaaally splurge on a Tab S8 Ultra.. then I found Tab S7 FE. 12.4" Inch sounds pretty great, since it'll be only be used when I dont want to draw on my desk, or if I'm travelling. Any peeps liking S7 FE so far? It's like 1/3 of the price of the S8 Ultra mind you.

Are there any good VESA adapter clamps for tablets without mounting holes? I currently have a VESA laptop tray which works fairly ok, but it is kind of annoying to adjust the location/angle without taking the tablet off the tray.

>>6051922
The usb ports arent soldered in well so be careful with the cord. Aside from that and sometimes driver issues, nah not really any problems.
>>
>>6051898
I think the tab S7+is a better choice than the FE, and they're pretty cheap secondhand right now. FE is laggy.

Xp-pen Artist Pro 16. There are a few things on amazon like this that may work, but they are intended for thicker monitors and I'm not sure that they handle mobility that well.

Got the Wacome ONE:

+ Cables are less of a hassle
+ Less bulky overall for the same screen size
+ Built in stand is great and the angle I prefer drawing at.


-Screen is worse than the Cintiq 13HD and it's immediately obvious. Not as bright and colors are a bit faded.

-Biggest con is the pen. It's worse than any Intuos/Cintiq pen I've used. I'm not a fan of the more rounded tips on the nib.

-This tablet and pen has twice the pressure levels than the 13HD but half the time my lighter strokes feel like they aren't registering. Probably have to mess around with the app and pen settings. Very annoying.

It's not terrible but it's a shame you can't use the other Wacom pens on this.

For $350 it's not terrible but if I ever start making money off drawing, I'm immediately buying a Cintiq 16.

>>6054130
If you're drawing for 20 hours or less a week, you probably won't have to replace them for at least 2 or 3 years.

Once the initial wear and tear sets in, the nibs don't really go down unless you draw really hard pressure wise.

I still have an old Intuos CTH-480 I used a really long time ago for OSU. How far along has the tech come since 2013 for drawing? The OP has way older Intuos models listed as recommended so it's a bit puzzling. What makes the Intuos 3 so great for example? I'm aware my Intuos was more like the Bamboo line and not a true Intuos tablet.
>>
>>6054400
Since 2013? Better drivers, more pressure levels. So just niceties and nothing essential. A 18 year old intuos 3 is built like a tank and will carry anyone a long way.

anyone here uses the xp pen artist 12 pro. Is it just me that the tablet needs quite a bit more pressure for it to register lines. Like for example on my intuos the moment the nib touches the tab at all it would register as lines. Idk if this is just the tradeoff of buying chink shit or is it just my particular pen that acted retarded, which is probably also the tradeoff of buying chink shit

After owning a 16 inch tablet for a good while, I can say that they suck regardless of brand. They're too small to work with, and the interface always looks wrong. Sure you can resize the screen but sometimes It gets blurry, or is not big/small enough to have a good workflow. Stands sucks ass (especially huion stands unless you own an ipad pro, which its ironically excellent for it) and you'll have to rely on either look for a better/taller stand, or put something under the tablet so you can comfortably draw on it. I cannot wait to go back to the old 2010's 21'' inch old cintiqs. These are way more reliable even than newer generations.

I'm suddenly in the market for a new tablet stand because my current one's getting pretty wobbly and slippery. I'm not too sure which one to go for so any suggestions would be nice. Having more viewing angles than just the 30° my current one has would be nice
>>
>>6058385
What the fuck is your problem? Do you work for wacom? I'm open to either but you're being severely autistic for some reason. Wacom driver issues are far and wide more talked about. I've heard some good things about both brands.

I got Intuos 3 A4 in mint condition. Impressions vs Intuos Pro Medium (I also used PTH-650 for about 8 years before):
Pen is heavier and longer than new Intuos Pro, but not heavy in a bad way. I like it, but I guess it is a con. Surface is 10/10- I use high opacity levels, so I don't need to press stylus much, I feel like this surface will never wear a single nib. We need this surface back with next Intuos.
Pressure levels are a meme. 1024 are more than enough (I cannot tell a difference between 1k and 8k, but I usually tweaked curve on Pro because default one required ridiculous amount of pressure to reach 100% anyways). Larger tablet takes a minute to get used to, but it is much less difference than I anticipated. Tablet is also much bigger in all dimensions, so it takes a lot of space on desk. The big issue for me is actually it's thickness- I still didn't find a comfortable position/ seat height that would allow me to draw straight lines I could with new Intuos, because my elbow sits below tablet, so my wrist doesn't rest as comfortable as on flatter Intuos Pro (of course I am drawing from an arm, not wrist- but you get the point).
Intuos 3 is made of shiny plastic, I got Special Edition version which is black and you can see finger marks if that bothers you- I wipe whole tablet before drawing every time anyways, but it is a con. It also makes sounds when you press it hard on edges, try lifting it by holding it with one hand or try twisting the plastic- it doesn't feel as solid as new Pro. I am going to make sure I don't ruing the cable connection since cable is not removable. Function keys were always a meme for me, I didn't even bother testing them.
Overall impressions- I like it a lot.
>>
>>6058313
driver issues with chink tablets are even worse, as well as a host of other issues.

>>6058313
Only reason I can think of is if you buy old models or you get a dud but it's been happening less lately. I guess, they don't have barrel rotation like wacom does?

>>6058454
>I cannot tell a difference between 1k and 8k,

I actually noticed differences in my strokes , I'm using the first intuos pro with the grip pen (2k lvls of pressure) the transition from transparent to opaque is very jumpy and hard to control at times , found a solution tho , just set the pen pressure level 2-3 notches closer to firm then fiddled with clip studios pen pressure settings
Still doesnt feel like an 8k level pen but it serves me well enough

My xp pen is stable. Aside from when microsoft breaks everyones drivers with their updates but that happened with my wacoms too. What tablet do you use, anon?
>>
Bought an Intuos Pro and immediately returned it because I refuse to use such a blatant nib eating surface and gift more money to Wacom just to use their overpriced shit.

>>6059304
i dunno what chinese brands have anything to do with it, i was trying to upgrade from my regular Intuos but i wont do it now that i've tried the pro line and their surfaces
its almost insulting, the felt nibs feel like youre rinsing a frying pan and even my drawing glove scratches against it, what the fuck were they thinking?

>>6059328
It’s been known since the after intuos 4 when they changed the surface that nibs wear out faster. Whether you believe it was a conspiracy on Wacom’s part for planned obsolescence is up to you. That you didn’t even bother to do simple research before paying a premium on a tablet says a lot. The majority of anti-Wacom posts are Huion and xp shills in these threads.
Btw, I’ve been using a intuos 5 daily for 10 years, the nib problem is real but over blown.
>>
>>6059478
the thing is i have tried a pro 24 before (the latest models) and the surface/drawing experience wasn't close to it at all, the etched glass on those screens has a great balance of friction and smoothness
i expected more from the top dog from the non screen side, that's it, i guess i should just save up more and get my own pro model as a next purchase

Watching this video makes me wonder if it was me causing the wobbly lines
I have dropped water on my tablet and it is wobbly even when I use a ruler.
It is an XP-PEN, but I think I caused this problem. The good part is that it is only noticeable when I take longer to make the line.

I use Photoshop, I don't even have CSP installed, so I am not sure- maybe it is CSP specific, because I honestly have ZERO problems with pressure recognition not being smooth. I am not using Windows Ink if that matters.

By the way I tested older driver for intuos 3 (driver v 6.1.6-7) and it doesn't even have Windows Ink box, what is interesting is that lines are more smooth with old driver, but pressure sensitivity is more aggressive. It is not a placebo, I am really sure this is the case. I will test other drivers too out of curiosity.
>>
>>6059478
idk about it being an overblown , since it was a problem for me , im using an intuos pro pth 851 and since im using the default pen pressure i have to press quite hard to get opaque lines on csp
the felt tip nib wore down with just 2 weeks of usage , i solved the problem by buying machine cut plexi glass and taping it on top of my pen tablet lol
>>
>>6059521
hi! , i got my eye on the asus pro art 27" QHD one rn , hell even the 1080p FullHD version is fine by me , i just want good colors out of the box since i dont have a color calibrator
i also looked at photography and graphic design sub reddits and they seem to like AOC , DELL and BenQ monitors a lot
>>
>>6059854
>what is interesting is that lines are more smooth with old driver

really ? , im gonna try the older pth 851 drivers to see if that would solve my pen pressure issue , thanks anon!
>>
>>6059874
i have to tick this box too , cause if i dont - the pen pressure on csp is just wacky and unnatural
e.g. pressure goes light then dark then light again and the tablet registers a line even when my pen slightly touches the drawing surface , creating ghost lines
>>
>>6059873
i own the 1080p version which is 16:10 and it's great with the color accuracy (comparing a pic with my iphone 11 pro max), I've never owned something more expensive than this so i can't tell how it compares to those $500+ Dell monitors and stuff

Multimedia artist here, I'm using a Dell UP2516D UltraSharp 25" PremierColor Monitor and its pretty good for me so far

Actually what are the things to look for in a monitor if it's just used for drawing? 100% SRGB and what else?
>>
I bought a matte screen protector for my iPad. Not an official paperlike, but one of those aftermarket "paper feel" brands, but when I draw on it, it still feels like I'm drawing on glass with how smooth it is.

It sounds different to glass, it feels different when touching it with my finger, but drawing doesn't feel much different, and I don't even think it's causing nib ware. Is this common with aftermarket brands? Will the significantly more expensive official paperlike offer more resistance?

Everything works tilt/pressure/hover all wacom features even feels like its more accurate. the spen button won't do anything but you can bind it and that works on most apps.
If you end up flashing use odin and not heimdall.

It was pretty fast and efficient as a drawing tablet but after a few updates with the latest one being one ui 3.1 I was getting frustrated by it, still usable but not pleasant, lots of lag in the menus, linage fixed that.
>How much did you use it for non art stuff?
only used it for art stuff

if you've used samsung products before or spens then you should know what to expect, I got a matte screen protector cause it feels nice to draw on.
I personally prefer a spen to apple pencil and my staedtler spen and previous note device spens work on it too.

Is it feasible to start learning art (actually NSFW illustrations) with screenless tablet for courses like Brent's art and science of drawing?
I'm a poor fag, wanna avoid display tablets and art supplies, and prefer screenless tablets also for reason of ergonomics, but it seems odd to practise drawing circles on a screenless tablet in the same way Brent demonstrates it with paper and pencils.
>>
>>6060441
Thanks for the reply

Not really. I'm interested in the S6 or S7 because the hardware seems great for the price range, but I have zero idea what's its like to actually use it and most importantly, software and how it runs.

Hi, i have been using this old wacom with 1024 pressure levels and a small drawing area for years now, so it's probably time for a upgrade.

lenovo m14t is the only AES tablet not integrated into a laptop. It's amazing, great colors and very light. Multitouch and as good of a pen as you'll get. Drivers are maddening if you use it on anything but a lelnovo chinktop, but you can perservere if you are resorceful.
you also need a way of producing a signal via usb-c displayport alt mode
this can be done in a few ways, all of which require you to be resourceful.

hey guys, im looking into buying the new Cintiq Pro 16 that released in 2021
i'm just curious about something, is there a practical way of making it portable i.e. not depend on a power outlet?
i'll be using it with a last gen thunderbolt laptop so i think that might be able to power up a part of the tablet but not everything....i've read something about power banks but i'm kinda stupid to understand it
if you have a workaround this it'd be cool to know, i have some projects to finish on campus and this thing is only 2kg so i can carry it sometimes with proper care

Probably best I learn how to draw before I go buying a drawing tablet right ?

>>6061406
If you don't feel like drawing on a pen and paper, you're not gonna feel like plugging your tablet in/setting it in the right spot, opening up a drawing app, and drawing.

How slippery is an ipads screen, I have a galaxy note and the felt tip makes it not too bad.

I do feel like drawing though and I do. By not knowing I mean a month doing it daily off books and online courses. But I’m still trash so I was saying should you become good first
>>
>>6061422
I want to add to this
You might enjoy drawing but dislike traditional drawing. In my case traditional was so messy and annoying that I quit drawing for a while, after buying a tablet I began to enjoy drawing to the fullest.
>>
>>6061445
Do you think that’s a result of your generation being brought up on devices?
>>
>>6061475
Not him but I've had a formal art education with oils, pastels, etc, and I fucking hated getting my hands dirty. Cleaning up was a pain in the ass too, even though we had a proper large sink, turpentine, and all that. With digital I just paint, save, and log off. No stupid smell, no worrying about paint running out, no time limits (acrylic), no idiotic pencil and charcoals ruining the insides of my pencil case (and erasers) with black soot. I'm so fucking glad I never have to do trad art ever again.
>>
>>6061488
But trad you have something physical that you keep. What happens if you want to sell a painting? How would you do that on a device?
What happens if you lose the device and there goes all your work ?
>>
>>6061494
>What happens if you lose the device and there goes all your work ?
>what are backups?
>>
>>6061494
>sell a painting
Lol no I'm not a fine arts snob even though I am trained to bullshit like one
>lose your work
I'm gonna be real with you, I have lost track of where I have kept my old trad art, to the point where when an art teacher position required me to include trad art in my portfolio I just gave up on it and simply accepted the payraise at my current employment. If I lose the working files to my digital art, it literally doesn't matter to me since I won't be working on them ever again, and have posted my portfolio pieces on multiple websites. If I lose my WORKING working file (which I have due to my drive corrupting), I just simply recreate it in less time than it would take for me doing trad (paint, wait for it to dry, paint again, fix it, paint over the fixing, wait for it to dry, paint again, fix again... etc etc)
>>
>>6061488
Just chiming in
I am grateful for the existence of digital drawing. I had to stop going to my drawing classes in high school years because of the said messiness and costs of supplies and my tiny room could not store all the materials. Now with a tablet I pick up what I left a decade ago and rrstart from the basics.
>>
>>6061196
Nope. If you want portable with no power outlet you need to get a weaker display like wacom one. I think some 12"/13" from xp pen and huion work without seperate power as well.

Really though, at that point you should probably go for an ipad or galaxy tab s7/s8. I know you can use them as screen tablets with a laptop if you want.
>>
>>6059969
Contrast ratio needs to be 1000:1 or higher.
Bright backlight (you'll probably never use it at 100% brightness, this just ensures the backlight dimmimg over time won't affect you)
No backlight bleed. Try to avoid bezel-less displays especially with IPS monitors. Find a thick bezel if you can since they block the backlight fully.
>>
>>6059387
It's hard to tell. It may, it may not. If they took really good care of it and didn't leave it on all the time then it might be fine for a few more years. The build quality is solid, I'm not worried about the stylus or the emr grid or the tablet itself. With something that old the issue is the screen having weird problems or the backlight going out.

what the hell? are there any big chinktabs that are decent?
as far as I can tell only the Inspiroy WH1409/Giano V2 has a large area (13 inch by 8 inch).
XP-Pen doesn't offer anything that big either.
Is there any reason in particular this one sucks?
>>
I bought an XP-pen tablet some years ago, it's done a decent enough job but I got it before I saw the webm here >>6048875 and it has exhibited all of these problems and more since getting it.

Why is the Intuos 3 recommended? Isn't the surface area way too small? I like having a big, huge drawing area.

Basically what I'm looking for in a tablet is:
>Large fucking drawing area
>Lots of customizable buttons
>Wheel or something for easily zooming in an out (the one on the XP-pen deco is shit)
>Accuracy on the pen (won't fail to trigger or trigger when I'm not touching the drawing surface, won't automatically trigger the eraser button for no reason, XP-pen fuckin sucks, but also just really good pressure accuracy and stuff is what I'm looking for)
>No screen
>Nice texture, the XP-pen deco pro has pretty much just the right texture for me but I wouldn't mind a little more dry and papery of a feeling

I use CSP if that helps recommendations at all

>Why is the Intuos 3 recommended?
I have had mine for two days (I have been using screen less Wacom tablets for many, many years), and I already fell in love with it. Surface is the best thing about it. It is absolutely flawless. Tablet itself is recommended, because it is durable. Feng has been using his professionally since it debuted on the market, and that guy draws A LOT.
From my point of view (I draw daily, pic related- quick, rough personal sketch I did for fun when testing Intuos 3):
>>Large fucking drawing area
Intuos 3 A4 is 12x9 inches (for 16:9 you will get some of vertical space cut to maintain proportions). You don't want anything bigger unless you use some kind of enormous screen.
>Lots of customizable buttons
Every button is customizable on Intuos3, but I never understood why people choose function keys instead of keyboard- personal choice I guess.

1/2
>>
>>6062227
2/2

>Wheel or something for easily zooming in an out (the one on the XP-pen deco is shit)
Intuos 3 has a touch strip, but it is as useful as any other touch ring- meaning it is a gimmick that is cumbersome compared to typical fluid brush resize by moving stylus vertically in Photoshop (I just arrived at the point you mentioned you use CSP- I have no idea how it works in CSP).
>>Accuracy on the pen (won't fail to trigger or trigger when I'm not touching the drawing surface, won't automatically trigger the eraser button for no reason, XP-pen fuckin sucks, but also just really good pressure accuracy and stuff is what I'm looking for)
Intuos 3 is just as accurate as newest Intuos Pro for me. Meaning no compromises.
>Nice texture, the XP-pen deco pro has pretty much just the right texture for me but I wouldn't mind a little more dry and papery of a feeling
Intuos 3 has really smooth texture and for me it is the biggest plus (I used to put a piece of glass, or protective hard glass over my tablets because smooth, consistent surface is a must for me), but from what you said it might not be one for you. You might want to reconsider- smooth surface is great for long drawing sessions, but for drawing as a hobby having something more similar to a traditional paper might be better- in that case Intuos 3 might not be good. Although some people tape printing paper to their tablet (literally), so you might experiment too.
>>
>>6062107
>Isn't the surface area way too small?
Retard. The Intuos 3 has three sizes and the large one is huge.
>>
>>6062107
>Why is the Intuos 3 recommended?
It's the last intuos series that were still made in Japan, after that they moved production to China and the build quality suffered for it. As a testament you can find countless anecdotes of these tablets lasting 12+ years. Also the surfaces have perfect smoothness to grip imo, they won't wear down your nibs while also providing just enough grip that your strokes won't feel slippery. It's a crying shame they discontinued selling their surfaces.

That said make sure you get one with minimal to no scratches on the surface, you don't want to get one with divets and have to put a sheet over it ruining one of the biggest pros the 3s have. As long as you handle it well and aren't super heavy handed, don't drop stuff, eat on it etc, your nibs alone won't wear them down.

IMO the physical buttons and touchstrips are total gimmicks on these and feel less untuitive to use than your mouse scrollbar+keyboard, but you can always buy a seperate controller and map shortcuts to it.
>>
I'm between buying a 10.4 inch display and a 12.4 inch one.
How much of a difference do those two inches actually make?
>>
>>6062325
whatever factory they're using in China is a fucking disgrace, the Pro 16s in particular keep shipping with bent/unfit/warped frames out of the production line, some are minimal and some are bad enough that they keep getting returned by people to the point that everyone with some experience tells you to avoid their direct store and go for amazon 100% of the time
paying Apple amounts of money doesn't get you Apple level of build quality nowadays, infuriating

What's software support for the intuos 3 like? Do I have to use old-ass drivers or has anyone made good third-party drivers or anything?
