Monoprice has their refurbished 22in HD Interactive Pen Drawing Display 1080p LED with Adjustable Stand [monoprice.com] for $279.99.

Overall, this is the best deal you'll find on a Cintiq knockoff. 1080p 22" and $280 is pretty much unheard of. Last price for this as a refurb was $300+shipping, so this is about $30 less overall. HOWEVER, it comes with a price. This particular model is known to have horrible drivers, and poor accuracy (pen wobbling). It is said to be improved by using Huion drivers (the ones for the GT-220, I believe). The GT-220 tablet was known to have similar issues with quality, namely poor pressure sensitivity.
There's probably a TN panel in this, as people have noted rather poor viewing angles.

imho, you may be better off spending 2x the price for the XP-Pen Artist22 or 21.5 if you plan to be doing intensive/hobbyist art on this. The accuracy and pen pressure is truly exceptional on that one. If, however, you don't need to rely on accuracy and just want a pen display for as cheap as you can get, this Monoprice one will fit the job.

Edit: OSD is the same as the Huion GT-220: https://youtu.be/JLSZPs-Fk0U?t=3m39s and http://downloads.monoprice.com/fi...140916.pdf (see page 19)

Latest GT-220 driver is marked as last edited May 26, though this might not be when it was ACTUALLY last updated. Still should give some promise that the scene has changed for it a little.

I'd like to know how it goes for you, I think the most recent reviews are from 2015. I'm considering buying one and just returning it if the quality is mediocre.

Anyone know the difference between 12076 & 12077 besides the $20. Also, isn't the one posted above the same just NOT refurbished?
