Torn between two XP-Pen graphics tablets and never bought one before. Can someone offer advice?

Recommended Posts

XP-PEN G640 6x4 inch or the XP-PEN Star03 Drawing Tablet 12 inch with 8 Hot Keys

The G640 is £40 and the Star03 is £45 for the next few hours. I would largely be using this in Designer, however never using a drawing tablet before I'm wondering which is the best. The latter of the two has a significantly larger work space which I'm assuming is worth the £5 extra. Could anyone who has drawing tab experience give me some pointers?

Speaking from experience: get the larger one. 6"x4" seems awfully small to me. I work on a large Wacom now, and before I used a smaller one. The larger tablet is far more comfortable to work on for me personally.

That said, I am aware that some people prefer a smaller tablet. In this case the 12", however, is still fairly small in my opinion. Just get the larger one, because even IF you feel you want a smaller surface to work on, the drivers always allow you to reduce the active area.
