Last week the 12 Pro went frontpage at $199. This is a much better deal, the 12 Pro is actually inferior to the non-pro Kamvas 13 (explained below)
Amazon has the HUION KAMVAS 13 Pen Display/Drawing Tablet on sale for $189 after -$50 "clippable coupon" - you must click the checkbox before adding to cart
Item is sold by the official HUION seller account, shipped by Amazon.
edit: the deals have shuffled a bit, but are updated below in red:
Black: $215 > Now $192 or $208 w/ stand
Purple: $189 > Now $207 w/ stand
Green: $204 > Now $203 or $209 w/ stand
Why this one?
This is the 2020 Kamvas 13... it's the one you want, specifically because it is a new 2020 edition and thus comes with the upgraded PW517 pen
, which is a VAST improvement in quality. Most of the other Kamvas models including pros are still coming with a PW507. The Kamvas 13 PRO has the same specs HOWEVER it has an older pen because it's a 2019 edition, and still runs a $300 price tag. You do NOT want to pay extra for the pro version, you WANT the cheaper (NEWER) Kamvas 13 (2020 edition). Almost forgot: this Kamvas 13 has laminated glass
(no gap between pen tip and pixels in screen - "parallax") - usually in the past you needed to spring for the pro version to get laminated glass.

$207: PURPLE W/ STAND credit to PhattyMikey [amazon.com]
$207: BLACK W/ STAND credit to PhillyMikey [amazon.com]
$208: GREEN W/ STAND [amazon.com]
PS: The color refers to the back/bottom of the tablet color, the front is always black. The "Midnight Green" color is something like olive meets cement gray, not a bright green. The purple is similarly muted but still looks "purple"

DO I NEED THE EXTRA CABLES?
You don't "need" them but they're nice to have. The tablet comes with a 3-in-1 cable using USB A and HDMI to connect. However, using a single "fully featured" USB C cable is less clumsy/bulky than the 3-in-1 and may be preferred. The thing is, you can't just go buy any fully featured USB C cable... the ports are recessed, generic USB C cables won't fit in the plug. Huion normally charges $30 for the cable, so bundling it in for ~$15 is ideal if you would like to use a simple USB C cable rather than a 3-in-1 cable (you can view the 3-in-1 cable on the product listing)
I hope I helped some of you score a pen display that you will love! I've been a lurker here for years and used the site 10+ hours last week shopping for a laptop and found one I truly adore thanks to all of you, so felt it was my duty to try and give back to the community. I nursed this thread like a baby. Proud of myself to see it actually got some traction
