Monoprice 10X6.25 Inches Graphic Drawing Tablet Review

Is Monoprice the best cheap graphics tablet?

In my opinion, Monoprice 10x6.25 inches graphics drawing tablet is the best value graphics tablet available.

In this review, I will try to list some pros and cons of this graphics tablet so that you can decide if this is a good product for your needs. As I emphasized numerous times in my article Graphics Tablets Brands and Reviews, some of us may not be able or willing to cash out a couple of hundreds of dollars for a Wacom tablet, and they are looking for something cheaper that has good specifications.

Monoprice graphics tablets is certainly one of the best out there when it comes to good quality for a low price. This tablet is extremely cheap at about 50-60 bucks, and proved to be very durable and practical.

Monoprice features a good size of 10x6.25 inches, which is comparable to the size of Bamboo Fun, and is 4 times less expensive than the Wacom in question. Its pressure sensitivity is excellent at 1024 levels, and only the prefessionals and the extra-needy will want more. What I expected with this tablet was a bad response time, but I am happy I was wrong. The low response time of the Monoprice graphics tablet downright impressed me.

Much like most graphics tablets, it has programmable hotkeys which are excellent for advanced users who want to save time. It's also very solid, which makes it durable and easy to use without worrying you'll damage something. In fact, I was always more cautious with my Bamboo Create tablet than with this one, because Monoprice seems much sturdier.

The only con I would emphasize is the fact that the pen requres a battery, which makes it bit heavier. Regardless of this, the pen is still not awkward to use and will fit well in your hand.

If you are sick of paying a lot of money for your graphics tablet, or are buying your first graphics tablet, I'd recommend Monoprice. It will not let you down, and won't hit your wallet hard. A warm recommendation.
