:iconfinalxfan:

Im highly considering getting a pen tablet soon so tell me...

Which one(s) do you recommend? I'm looking for something $200 and under and something easy to use or great for first time users. I've read online reviews about a few but I'd feel safer hearing from someone who most likely has proof of their love for a tablet. Any advice/suggestions welcome.


PLEASE HELP MEH :iconsweetbabyjesusplz:

I have a Wacom Bamboo Fun Tablet, I got it for about 100$ at Best Buy, but I heard you can get them for cheaper. It's good for first-timers and It works great too! :)

I highly recommend Bamboo! I've had the same one for over 4 years and it's incredibly sturdy and useful- easy to use, as well!

I've been looking at the Splash and the Create so I was wondering if you knew anything about the two or recommend a certain model?

I have an older model which is no longer in production so I can't recommend a specific one from personal experience, but it looks like Create has a larger working area, which is nice. The closer the size of your tablet is to the size of your screen, the easier it is to adjust to working on, and the more freedom your arm has to move (so you don't always have to draw exclusively from your wrist). The Splash has a smaller working area but it's easier on the wallet, so it's a good bet especially if it's your first tablet and you don't really know what you *want* in a tablet yet. (My Bamboo has the same sized working area as the Splash and it's worked fine for me!). When you work traditionally, do you usually draw with your wrist on a small area or paper, or do you take up lots of space and use broad strokes? This can help you decide what sized tablet is best for you. I've also noticed the Create is compatible with the Wireless accessory kit, whereas the Splash is not, so that's something to consider as well.

Hmm. Well I don't usually take up all the space on any one piece of paper and I usually draw with my wrist. So I think I'm leaning more toward the Splash. Plus it's my first so it's probably the better choice anyhow. Thank you! You had a lot of useful info there I appreciate your help! :thanks:

And of course I forgot one, it's the biggest version at 10x6.25in: [link]

The user defined spaces, by way. "Hot keys." I'm sorry.

I won't say there aren't better, mind--I've not used very many tablets at all. ^^; Good luck in finding one that works for you!

These are all Monoprice and in US dollars:
$41.85 for the 8x6in

$46.40 for the 10X6.25in

$84.10 for 12x9in

I've had the 8x6 for a bit and it's done very well for me since I've had it. ^^ It has ...and I can't think of the proper term for the second, but it has user defined spaces around the active area that you can set. (I personally set a few of them for what I use on my art programs most.)
