After spending a week with the 6.25“x10” Monoprice, my Yiynova and Cintiq remain unplugged and I gave my Intuos away to a friend. The Monoprice tracks subtle pressure variances and small movements with less lag and more crisp fidelity than any of the others. It is, put crudely, fucking awesome, in both OSX Lion and Windows 7 x64.
I have one of these, 10x6.5 I bought about two months ago for 48 bucks. It’s a billion times better than my old Wacom Bamboo and works like a fuckin dream.
ATTENTION ALL PENNY-PINCHING ART FRIENDS!!!
ooo reblogging this for potential future purchase
They’re DEF good. The textured surface makes drawing a lot more organic and it feels more like you’re drawing on paper. It’s super nice.
Just a word of warning though—I had to replace mine twice in under a year due to it just failing out on me. Other people have had better luck, but just be aware. But, they offer free repairs and will often send you a new one!
This is what I use and it’s a REALLY solid tablet to boot.
At one point I had both a Monoprice tablet and a Wacom tablet. After a couple days the Wacom tablet ended up in the trash. Now it’s almos 2 years later and my Monoprice still works like a dream.
ALSO REPLACEMENT MONOPRICE STYLUS PENS ARE ONLY $10!
It also has problems with PaintToolSAI but THEN AGAIN ALL THINGS DO AT THIS POINT since SAI is so ancient. But just letting people know if you’re intending to get one. I returned mine because I couldn’t get it to work with SAI and I’m pmuch SAI 4lyfe.
Apparently Julian Draxler said that he loves Dragon Ball. So this makes sense now. Can’t believe two grown up man are still doing this :) extremely cute and adorable.
