Gaomon PD1610 24

REVIEW – There’s an interesting fact many people looking to buy a graphics tablet maybe don’t consider—size. Oh, I know size is a factor because the larger the tablet, the more it costs. But there’s something else and it’s this: If a display tablet is 16 in. or less, it will not be the main

Gaomon PD156 19

REVIEW – In my multi-year career as an art director and children’s book designer, I’ve used quite a few graphics tablets.

tourbox elite xppen artist 24 pro 1

REVIEW – I create digital media as part of my job. It’s nothing fancy and I wouldn’t consider myself an artist. I create technical documents and training materials including videos for the field technicians who work for my company. In this role, I use several different programs like Photoshop for image editing, Camtasia for videos,

Ugee U1600 6

REVIEW – If you are an artist who uses drawing tablets, you may not have heard of Ugee. You may have heard of XP Pen or Xencelabs—but did you know both are owned by Ugee? What’s interesting is that Xencelabes is the new premium name in tablets; XP Pen is the mid-range while Ugee (the

XPPen Artist 10 (Gen 2) Pen Display review – If it’s a small graphics tablet you want, this is it

XP Pen Artist 10 16

REVIEW – In economics, there is something called the “Trickle-down Theory”, meaning the best of a few years ago works its way down to the rest of us mere mortals. While you may or may not agree with that theory, it does hold true for many products—notably display tablets. Features that were only in high-end

Xencelabs Pen Display 24 1

NEWS – If you are a photo retoucher, animator, or illustrator and don’t know the name Xencelabs, that may change this year.

Huion Inspiroy Dial 2 Pen Tablet review – More functional than pretty

Huion Inspiroy Dial 2 15

REVIEW – In previous graphics tablet reviews, I’ve noted that there are a lot of drawing tablets (both slate and display) available for what I always thought was a relativity small market. Maybe the market is much bigger than I think it is, because today, the number of tablets and companies offering them is growing,
