Setup and use

The set is standard allowing the tablet to be plugged directly into a laptop and used with the option to use a dual monitor. ( Downloading of required free software required )




The stylus is battery-free while the tables require 2 hours of charging to facilitate 10 hours of drawing. During the use of the tablet, there was no noticeable latency from drawing to screen capture with a comfortable feel pen, while the nips supplied did not come in a case and were easily lost if not put away tidily.

Some models come with a Wireless receiver but during our testing, this is not a requirement as to use the tablet required to be placed in front of a monitor to see what you are drawing.



Warranty 1 year



The tablet looks good and feels solid with an anti-slip mat but is let down by the packaging of the replacement nibs which are sure to get lost if used by a younger person. The supplied adapters, USB-C allows increased functionality to connect to an Android device with the customizable shortcut keys great allowing for a truly customised experience. The drawing tablet takes time to become familiar with, though handy to have a dual screen option to see the actual options of the shortcut keys (or required a play around with to become familiar with all shortcuts)

The product is designed for   beginners for drawing with the setup easy to use but requires a lot of practice in terms of hand-to-eye coordination and memory of the short key is used,
