Tablet Recommendation for Novice

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this seems like cross-posting, but I posted this UGEE M1000L tablet (made by Huion), and got no reply, so I went ahead and bought it, as I had store credit which would have run out. Then I saw this found this thread.
I would appreciate some comment as it's a 4000lpi as opposed to the Huion 1060Plus which is 5080. Will that make much difference to a first time tablet user?

Hello everyone,

 

I would like to buy a Wacom Bamboo tablet, but I do not understand the differences between the 3 models ... Folio, Spark, Slate ...

With which model can I import pictures in my notes directly with the tablet as in the Bamboo Paper application? ... even Wacom does not answer clearly to this question ...

 

Thank you for your answers...

Hey guys,

 

I'm looking for an entry-level-tablet and just finished my research which left me with three devices. Those are:

 

- XP-Pen Star 03

- Huion H610Pro

- Huion 1060 Plus

 

Since I am a novice I would love to know which of these devices you would recommend. I also created a strawpoll, to collect the feedback from across the web, so feel free to give it a click ; )

 

Cheers,

Jan

Hi Jan

I have the XP-Star05 and very happy with it. Important to follow the driver install instructions to the letter ie remove ANY graphic tablet drivers and disable antivirus before installing new drivers.

I have just ordered a Parblo Island A609 graphics tablet, after having dumped my Ugee M708. [it died].

The Parblo A609 has had some very good reviews. But I will let you know how good it is in a few days time. :P

I didn't buy anything yet, so I am quite interested in your review.

Well. I got my Parblo A609 G.T.

It is well constructed for a cheapish tablet, (£69.00).

It doesn't move about on the desk due to rubberised feet, the pen is battery free so no batteries to replace or recharge. 2048 levels of pressure whatever that means.

And you don't have to use the pen upright you can draw with it up to + or - 60 deg of tilt. 

It stated in the user guide that there are spare pen nibs but I can't find mine, I have emailed Parblo with no joy yet.

One review said that there are four programmable buttons but only three could be programmed. I found that all four can be programmed.

I have one button to open AD and one to open AP. I haven't decided what to do with the other two yet! Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Overall it's not a bad tab for the price with a 9"x6" working area, I am quite pleased with it.

Probably better to start with something on the cheaper end of the scale as some people find them difficult to use initially and end up going back to using the Mouse. I started with a Wacom Bamboo (£49) and loved it. I would say my graphic making is more than a hobby and soon found I needed something with a bit more flexibility/versatility and splashed out on an Intuous Pro, Medium. Expensive Yes (everything is expensive in the UK) around £300 back in 2013 but worth every penny.
