Any person considering this tablet, it's the best entry level tablet you will find, period. If you want to get your fingers wet in digital art this is the way to go. The pen is 100% precise with basically no lag at all. I use it with Photoshop, Krita and Illustrator. If you don't know what to do I regards of digital painting, get started with this. Also, you don't need fancy equipment, just this tablet an a computer.

I guess some people are interested in my review of the Huion. Here it is:

I used this tablet solely for processing/retouchng photographs, not graphic design nor freehand sketching. My review is based on extended experience with Wacom tablets, which I find superior, and IMHO, necessary if you're doing professional work. However, if you've never used a Wacom, I suspect this tablet might be more than adequate minus one aspect*.

My creative/professional experience. I've been a photographer for 15+ years. I've been using Photoshop for just about all 15+. I've been using a tablet for 10+ years. In those 10+ years, I've used only Wacoms' pro lines, and I previously owned their intro model. I'm currently a full-time retoucher for a clothing company.

I used the most up to date driver from Huion's website. Their customer service was responsive, but I didn't feel like it was worth the trouble. For some reason, they wanted me to provide an Amazon invoice number, even after I gave them the item's serial number. I suspect this tablet would be fine for some users. However, I ended up returning this and bought a Wacom instead. It was worth a try.

PROS
- Sturdy build. Surprisingly good!

- Affordable. A Wacom of the same size will cost you about three times more.

- Received an email response from customer service.

- Stylus can be used while charging, although it will be tethered from the top of the pen, which makes it difficult to use.

CONS

- * I had problems doing simple tasks such as drawing a selection with the marquee (M) tool. The tablet would automatically deselect my selection before it was complete. When dragging the percentage of a layer opacity, or a tool opacity, adjacent tools would be selected while dragging. IE: When adjusting the opacity of a layer, the opacity adjustment would randomly jump out and instead select the layer mode (which is to the left of opacity). I suspect this is because the response is not consistent nor fluid. Perhaps there would dead spots on the tablet surface, therefore reacting as if I wasn't on the tablet.

- Does not have a wide effective tilt. When utilizing the stylus buttons, I always had to adjust the tilt of the pen and point it vertically straight(er) before the tablet would recognize that I pressed the stylus button.

- When selecting and dragging (J), I found the pen to screen placement to be slightly off. This is based on a retouching action I do repeatedly on a daily basis. This is also a CON heavily based on my experience with Wacoms tablets. I suspect this is not a deal breaker for those who are not already accustomed to Wacoms.

- Stylus needs to be charged.

Hope that's helpful.

The art has touch capability, so you can pinch to zoom, etc. The draw only accepts pen input.

Want to get a Wacom for photo editing in Photoshop. Is the 2017 Medium Pro for $349 going to give me a noticeable advantage over one of these?

Huion New 1060 Plus or H610 Pro is the other one you should look at.

This is a great entry level tablet. I would highly recommend it if you're interested in using it for photo retouching. The $300+ ones will have a better build and feel. The stylus from this tablet feels dinky and too light in weight. I notice a big difference with the feel of the stylus. Don't quote me on this, but I believe the $300+ once also have better resolution coverage, response and sensitivity. That said, I've completed lots of professional jobs with this cheaper option.

As for those who are looking at the Huion. I think it's a great option if you've never used a Wacom. I can share a link to my Huion review on Amazon if anyone's interested.

I'm using one now and like it a lot. Very portable while traveling. My laptop supports a digitizer screen, but I prefer to sit back and use a tablet without slouching over.

Please do, I've always been interested in these but have no real need for an expensive model quite frankly.

I have used Wacom products for a long time and I can't recommend them anymore. The quality of their drivers has gone from bad to worse, they have issues with pretty much every software I use daily (on a Mac) and I've arrived to the point where I removed the tablet from my desk (I always had one for more than 10 years, different models).

Stay away from Wacom.

Just sent you a private message with my review. I don't want to hijack this thread too hard with Huion info.

Thanks , I went with the multitouch. $65 is a no brainer for me. I am sort of spoiled with the iPad Pro ad Apple Pencil. I"ve started to do some retouching and drawing with it. I hope I can do the same with my Macbook... Oddly, I have a Surface 3 Pro w/ Pen and never used it. It wasnt only until I got the iPad Pro that I have become interested in a drawing tool.
