" ...  I Haven't owned a wacom before so I can't really compare but, i have worked on a huion without display for several years now and I can tell the difference.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I love this tablet, I have been wanting a tablet with a screen without parallax for years but I could never afford any because they always had a big mark up, even for smaller tablets. ... I love the colors on the screen as well as the buttons on the side. ... The screen is great even when I am not using it for drawing or animating I use it as a second monitor.  ...  "
comment
" ...  There is also almost zero paralax (the "space" between where your pen touches the screen and the actual art) and the display is a nice matte finish so there's no glare and the pen doesn't slip around much. ... But only because I've discovered that the screen can actually double as a lightbox, which is super handy since I work in both digital and traditional media. ... Overall, as I said, I'm shocked that a pen display this nice is so inexpensive.  ...  "

" ...  Nice work, XP-Pen!  ...  "
comment
" ...  Being able to effortlessly draw the exact place you want to, with none of the switching between monitor and conventional tablet, it really makes a huge difference and I'm not sure I could ever go back. ... I'd like to note that I used this tablet exclusively with a Linux (Ubuntu 19.04) PC and that it worked flawlessly with no driver installation or system configuration-- it just worked.  ...  "

" ...  The glove it comes with is about a size Medium so if you have larger hands would recommend getting the large size from other Vendors on Amazon.  ...  "
comment
" ...  the pen feels good and is well balanced.  ...  "
comment
" ...  You don't have to use the glove, I've just found that it helps my hand glide across the tablet easier, but without it, I have not been accidentally pressing buttons or anything.  ...  "

comment
" ...  I love the colors on the screen as well as the buttons on the side. ... The buttons are great because for each program you use you can change what the buttons do, right now I have it set up for photoshop, animate, and Firefox, but I could add more programs if I needed to!  ...  "

comment
" ...  For set up I would like to stress how important it is to uninstall any old tablet drivers you have, most tablet drivers aren't compatible with each other so if you install a second tablet driver onto your computer it might cause unwanted issues and frustration.  ...  "
