Anyone using these? I've got a small Wacom that I love, but I'm definitely going to try this Monoprice 12"x9". Only $84. Seems too cheap to be good.
Does anyone have any experience with this brand? It looks like most of the comments on monoprice are from people who haven't used a Wacom much.
the dude that sits next to me at work has one at home. he says it's great.
the pen takes a AAA battery. but, it's not a deal breaker.
i've been thinking about getting one of them. let us know how it turns out.
So Monoprice is the Radioshack? They must be a Chinese distributer of OEM parts.
I'm interested in your review of the tablet when you get it.
someone posted one a while back that was a sketchpad...looked nice and cheap
Delivered about an hour ago.
I've used a Bamboo and a Graphire, and this is as good as both of those.
I'm not a heavy illustrator or artist. I use the tablet for touching up photos and sometimes doodling or making hand-drawn type, etc. The extra size is great, although I'm thinking 12"x9" is maybe even too big. I would've probably enjoyed the smaller one just fine.
The pen is good. Slightly heavier with the battery than the Wacom, I like the extra weight. The battery attachment seems flimsy, as long as that doesn't break it'll be great. Only one button (right-click) which is good enough for me. Also there is no eraser on it, which I also don't care about. The eraser on my Wacom just annoyed me.
It didn't come with any drivers and didn't immediately work. Monoprice has online chat support so I did that and they emailed me drivers within 10 minutes. Good service.
On the binary scale (zero or one) ... I give this tablet a "one."
