XP-Pen Artist 12HD Review: Can It be Your Graphics Tablet Monitor Choice
Hello friends, followers and watchers! This is not artwork, I know, but my latest purchase made me will to change the usual content I drop here, and indeed do a proper review of the thing. I was thinking about writing reviews on art supplies for some time, but heck, never went down into writing one. I mean, not until now, anyway! So, to cut it to the bone and the core of the matter Ė XP-Pen Artist 12HD Graphics Tablet Monitor. Is it worth it? Is it better or worse than Wacom Cintiq Pen display ? And if so, to what degree?

Feeling of Chinese Luxury : My biggest fear I had when I decided to give this XP-Pen Pen display a try was the quality of the components. Itís not that all Chinese products are automatically crappy, but when you offer a product that is significantly cheaper than its main competitor (that is also a dominant force in the market in question) and promise sameíish features, you kind of start to expect them to cut some corners. And the quality of the materials is one of the easiest places to spare some expensesÖ

That fear was pretty much banished when I opened the package. fashion white box looked professional from the start, but after opening it, I was utterly delighted. Everything packed perfectly, all the components are there and they were as high quality as you could hope for. tablet itself is small and not heavy, but it feels just /right/ - plastics donít feel cheap at all, are smooth and polished. The entire tablet doesnít creak or give way to pressure, giving a feel of stolid solidity. Every other component is a delight too. Pen is light as a feather and comes in a quite luxurious case with all extra bits (Like spare nibs and a metal ring holder for nibs replacement). One thick, 3-in-1 cable is quite a pleasant thing and will surely save some cable clutter while connecting this pen display.



XP-Pen Artist 12HD IPS graphics tablet monitor has 11.6 inch full HD screen intuitive display, 1920 x 1080 high resolution, fashion designed ultra-thin body, HDMI and USB, adjustable holder, customizable up to 6 express keys, a touch bar, 8192 levels of pressure sensitivity, weigh 1.2kg.With 6 customizable express keys and 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity, you can perform each stroke with accuracy while preserving intensity and increasing work efficiency.

For $229, the XP-Pen Artist 12HD tablet is a pretty good tablet for artists who are looking for a cheaper and portable tablet monitor.you can check this product on XP-Pen official site (cliquez ici pour suivre le lien) .

What makes XP-Pen devices special is that its cheaper than Wacom without sacrificing on portability and features.The size of the XP-Pen Artist 12HD is actually pretty great! Itís not too large and weighs around 1.5Kgs, making it possible for you to carry around the tablet wherever you go.

In fact, this is a list of everything that you get inside the box:

XP-Pen Artist 12HD Tablet Monitor , 3-in-1 Cable(HDMI, Power, and USB Cables Included),Pen Holder (New Digital Pen P06, 8 Pen Nibs, Removal Tool Included),Power Adapter,Quick Start Guide(Mac and Windows),Microfiber Cleaning Cloth,Artist Glove .

The Tablet

The tablet is great for painting because it supports 8192 levels of pressure sensitivity. So, itíll be easier to draw on the screen with utmost precision. Further, the touch bar is upgraded from 8 levels to 24 levels and there are 14 user-defined shortcuts / express keys to make your experience smooth and easy.The screen resolution of 1920 X 1080 is high enough for drawing.

What makes the XP-Pen Artist 12HD tablet so great is that its the complete package. So, you donít have to hunt for a compatible pen or a stylus to complete your portable graphics tablet setup. Everything is covered by the company, which includes a two-level adjustable stand and a digital pen with 8 additional nibs.

I have had the opportunity to try several products of XP-Pen and this presents one of his best designs both aesthetic and functional, The body is almost completely plastic, mixing several finishes and shades with a striking result on the verge of being too much, but still a rather sober result. if youīre planning on painting outside home much or travelling a lot with the tablet.



The Glass Screen

The quality of the screen is definitely an improvement over other XP-Pen products, anti-glare, full HD, better viewing angles etc. But the problem comes when comparing it with the competition. Even more, after the last update of Wacom on the whole line of its professional products, raising the level of the screens to 4k and 99% RGB (which comes with a big price of course).

Colors may not be Artist 12HDís strongest point, especially with the 72% color gamut, which is around, this is considered normal color gamut, and unless you work in an environment where colors are super important, you wonít have to worry much about this.
However it is possible to create stunning concept art even on a smaller screen. The exquisite frosting surface treatment technology brings me an unprecedented writing experience. just like the original feeling of paper writing.

When you make a mark on the screen it loads fast. The response time is incredible for this model and itís much better than other XP-Pen devices.You can draw from any angle and still keep a strong view of the screen. Thereís no major glare but there is a thin coating that makes the surface super smooth. Opinions vary on screen textures but I think this smooth screen works great. XP-Pen ships this unit with an optional screen protector .

The drawing experience is surprisingly accurate even with the smaller screen. Youíll find no jitters in the work and the outer corners are still just as sensitive as the center LCD area. Every mark you make will instantly translate onto the screen with no lag time.



The 3-by-1 cable

This runs on DC power so it does need to be positioned near an outlet. But if itís on your computer desk then it can likely plug into the same outlet or power strip. The tablet is connected via an Hdmi, included in the 3x1 cable along with a usb and power supply. This last one has in itself a very curious fact, and is that the connector to the current is interchangeable according to the country where you live.

The sides and back are quite clean, we only have on the left side the 3-by-1 cable entry, the power button .The 3 x 1 cable keeps the work area fairly clean and it looks durable.

Since Artist 12 Graphics Drawing Tablet Monitor is compatible with HDMI there wonít be much of issues connecting it to any modern computer, including any computer with a display port that can be converted to HDMI, like USB-C, Displayport & mini Displayport. The only time this may be an issue is in case you only have VGA port in your computer. I honestly donít know if workaround solutions would work if youíre in such situation.

Bear in mind that XP-Pen Artist 12HD doesnít come with a stand. I donít think thatís a deal breaker for many artists, you can buy XP-Penís stand, buy a 3rd party stand, or make your own.



The Stylus

The P06 stylus also comes with a new design. Much more showy than its predecessor, although it does not contribute anything new,A detail that if I found a little annoying in the process of adaptation, is that the buttons are so deep inside the body that sometimes it is difficult to find them, Especially at night. Having said that, it works perfectly .

Since the pen is battery-free youíll never need to charge it. But if youíve never used a battery free pen before then it can take some adjusting. One other nice feature is the pen button which replicates a right click on your mouse. But the button is sturdy so you wonít find yourself pushing it by accident. The P06 battery-free stylus featuring digital eraser.



The driver

Speaking of the drivers, incredible improvement of the latest products I tried. Not at all 100% of course, there are still many things to polish, but they rarely fail and the configuration is quite simple.You can download the driver from XP-Pen official site or contact their customer service.

XP-Pen drivers installed within a minute, without any issue and the tablet connected after the installation not only worked perfectly from the start, but also had a surprisingly good Hotkeys already assigned in Photoshop Ė my main painting software. All in all, it wasnít any hassle to connect the tablet to my PC Ė both from the hardware perspective thanks to the 3-in-1 cable and from the software perspective, as the drivers worked flawlessly.



Customizable Press Keys and the touch bar

Since this is a smaller unit youíll only get six express keys. But this sacrifice might be worthwhile if you need a portable tablet.

Having 6 hot keys , as well as a touch bar for zooming in & out the canvas (you can customize it to do other things if you like). this allow me to increase my work efficiency. Tablet reacts to tapping well and the customizable hotkeys are really nice Ė tactile, responsive and easily reprogrammed to serve your purposes.

One of the aspects that most motivated me when I saw the photos of this tablet for the first time, was the touch bar. While I'm working, I use quite a lot the touch ring on my INTUOS to change the size of the brushes without stopping and I just love it because makes me go really fast. I tried it and I was very disappointed.



Good Quality, Excellent Price
I wasnít expecting the same quality of input and features as Wacom Cintiq offers. Simply because I still believe that Wacom Cintiq is significantly more expensive due to the final qualityÖ And mostly because I have constant opportunity to check Cintiq at my workplace. Itís smooth, itís responsive, itís polished. But Artist is not really far behind! Pressure control is pretty much the same as Wacom tablets, it feels very smooth and gives proper feedback.

To be honest, I donít feel any drastic downsides to XP-Pen tablet when comparing it to Cintiq. Screen is bright and clear, pen works flawlessly, feedback is great and constantÖ Where are the flaws in this tablet, considering how much cheaper it is?



Worthy purchase?
I think it is. I donít bash Wacom guysÖ I use their products for years and still work on Intuos Pro at work. And there are pretty much no issues with it. Itís top quality stuff. But I also believe that their brand power is getting a little out of hand, and they charge a shit-ton of cash just because they can as a company that is placed and praised as an absolute sovereign of this market. And it surely was Ė About 10 years ago I had a Wacom Graphire tablet and a Pentagram XXL. I literally threw the Pentagram into the trash, where it belonged Ė Wacom had no competition in the past and so it builds an image of The Only Company for you, when you need a graphic tablet.
But the times changed, and more and more companies rise to test the mettle of the old king. If you want a screen graphic tablet with really satisfactory performance but donít want to splurgeÖ XP-Pen Artist12 is a product I can fully recommend. For more than half the price-tag you get a device that is so similar, you hardly will feel a difference in most scenarios.



Conclusion

For the price and what it delivers, it is a very good option to start with this type of interactive Monitor Display Tablet XP-Pen Artist 12HD .
If you hold the tablet or work in your lap this wonít be an issue. And the stand it fantastic so thereís no reason not to use it! This is one of the best tablets you can get for this size .

If you want a portable display tablet then the Artist 12HD is your best choice. Itís lightweight, sturdy, and built to the best specifications you can get from XP-Penís display tablet lineup.

As you can see, this is practically everything that you need to start digital painting on the go. The pen is great and straight lines and curves are very easy to draw on the screen. The pressure sensitivity works well and the overall experience is good. You can definitely work on the go with this tablet. The stand is sturdy and holds the tablet at two different angles, adapting to your needs.

Review: XP-Pen DECO 02 Digital Art Painting Graphic Drawing Pen Tablet
After getting to test the Wireless XP-Pen Star 05 tablet, I was curious about how good the more averagely priced XP-Pen tablets were so I bought this XP-Pen New DECO 02 when I saw it on sale on XP-Penís website. The main reason why I chose this tablet is because of 6 expresskeys and 1 Touch Ring there were, and because I wanted to see how convenient hot keys are.

The XP-Pen DECO 02 Digital Painting Graphics Tablet, perfect for beginning digital artists looking for a reliable graphics tablet that will last for years. It is perfect by adobe illustrator for drawing and painting or Photoshop for photo editing, which makes it an exceptional value. It has a 10 x 5.63 inch area to draw on, and itís large enough to use on your desk or to throw in a backpack with your laptop and the lightweight pen to create artwork anywhere. The DECO 02 connects via USB-C .



You can get all of the detailed technical specs over on XP-Penís website, but for the purposes of this review here are the specs that we find relevant:

14.2 x 8.3 x 0.3 inches
6 Express Keys
10 x 5.63 Drawing Area
Win10 & MAC OS Compatible
1 Touch Ring
P06 Passive Pen
Additionally, in terms of the responsiveness and usability XP-Pen says the DECO 02 is capable of:

8,192 levels of pressure
5,080 lines of resolution
266 pps recording
Again, if you are interested in the full tech spec rundown you can find that information over on XP-Penís website,

A great, beautiful looking tablet with 6 hotkeys and touch ring capability. Brings new life to the DECO 02 by adding gestures and pop-up helper menus simply by hovering your finger above the keys on the tablet. Professional level sensitivity at 8192 levels with pressure. they make for a much smoother workflow so you donít have to snap out of creative mode to figure out the buttons.

This is a fantastic tablet for its price of 110 USD on (cliquez ici pour suivre le lien) . It is half price or less compared to the Wacom Intuos draw, except that this tablet has a much bigger active area which will give you better line control.



Whatís in the Box

The XP-Pen New DECO 02 comes in a slick and simple white box with a picture of the tablet on it.The things that come in the box:

A. DECO 02 Tablet
B. P06 Battery-free Wireless Stylus
C. Pen Holder (8 pen tips + 1 Remover pen-clipper included)
D. Drawing Glove
E. Green Stopper
F. USB Cable
G. Quick guide



The Tablet

The tablet has a nice overall design with a simple flat area for drawing. I was surprised at the overall size of the tablet at first, but it should fit easily into most backpacks or laptop bags.

The surface of this tablet has a smooth design with enough tooth to not feel like youíre slipping while drawing. I think this is the best texture to prevent nib and tablet wear while giving you a decent amount of control over your lines.

The back of the tablet has the usual information sticker and 4 rubber feet. The rubber feet do a proper job of holding your tablet in place while drawing.

The expresskeys on this tablet are fantastic to use. They have enough resistance so that you donít accidentally press them, but not so much resistance that theyíre hard to press. Theyíre also fairly quiet, only giving enough of a click to let you know that youíve actually pressed it.

The XP-Pen DECO 02 Graphic Drawing Tablet is definitely one of the most affordable tablets out there. You can sometimes pick one up for under $110. Which is incredible compared to other graphic tablet prices. The size of the canvas is large as well. The drawing area 10 x 5.63 inches and has a nice elegant slim build. It's pretty big, but at the same time it doesn't take up your whole computer desk.



6 Hot Keys and 1 touch ring

You donít need to be the best drawer in the world to make good use of this graphics tablet, the pen feels fantastic in the hand, you have 6 user defined controls that allow you to set it up as you wish, maybe creating some back buttons, some special effects, who knows? Itís totally up to you. If you take the pen you can see there are 2 more buttons on there which you can also customize to do whatever you want.

The express keys were easily pressed and were spaced far enough apart that you wonít ever misclick a button accidentally while working.

the touch ring allows you to zoom in and out incrementally to check your work close up and far for stuff like details, value, composition, etc.

The main selling point of this tablet is apparently the Sliver touch ring. It spins really smoothly and clicks nicely every ~15 degrees of rotation. I have no complaints about its quality, but I was never a fan of wheel-type expresskeys so it only acts as an accessory for me.

The other reviews of the Deco 03 I have seen so far praise the Sliver touch ring for being the main reason they like the tablet, but I really cannot see it as a plus. In my opinion, the quality rubber grip pen is the real advantage here.

The buttons are located on the left side of the tablet, but do not fret my left-handed brethren! I had no problems with the buttons getting in the way even as a left-handed individual.



The Stylus

The Pen feels good when drawing, it's not too heavy compared to other pens. It has two buttons that can be customized and an eraser at the end .

As far as pens go, I have to say this is one of the nicest tablet pens I have used to date. A unique hexagonal design,It feels well-built and you can tell a lot of time and design effort went into it and how it would fit and feel in your hand for extended periods of time. These ergonomics will come into play when you are spending hours processing images and repeating similar movements over and over and over. If I had to choose a single highlight about the DECO 02 , this P06 Stylus may well be it.

The stylus that came with the XP-Pen DECO 02 came with 8192 levels of pressure allowing for a good variety of line weights.

The pen had a great non-slip & tack-free flexible glue grip which made it really easy to draw with for long periods of time.
Iíve mentioned this stylusí responsiveness already, but itís really where this stylus shines.

Thereís a lightness to this pen that I wasnít expecting and while it took a little while to get used to I now feel like this is a great pen for getting nice, smooth lines.

Just keep with the pen until you get used to the lightness and youíll find that itís fairly reliable for drawing.

It comes with a pretty nifty pen holder so that youíre not just trying to lay the pen down on the tablet or trying to find a good place to store it. It does come with a hefty base you can put it into so you can have a good place to store the pen when youíre not using the tablet.the DECO 02 comes with a bunch of spare transparent nibs, as located in the inkwell holder.



Installation

The tablet driver are extremely easy to install. You donít even need to have your tablet plugged in to install them! Just go download the latest version from (cliquez ici pour suivre le lien) and remove all other tablet drivers you have on your computer before installing it.

While installing, youíll need a clean slate; that is, no other tablet drivers should be on the system at the time of installation. Itís been noted that tablet companies do not like to play well with others and so youíll have tons of driver conflicts; whether that is true or just an issue caused by my older XP-Pens and Windows 10 Pens are uncertain, but just itís best to be safe and just nuke the other drivers.



How Compatible Is It?

The XP-Pen DECO 02 drawing tablet is compatible with the latest software including adobe illustrator, manga studio, and many more that are out there.

This tablet is compatible with both Windows & MAC software. The windows software has a very wide range of customization, allowing you to customize the buttons making it perfect for you.

However, for me the only major downfall with this tablet is this; When it comes to the MACs customization possibilities it lacks a completely customizable interface, so it doesnít allow you to create those buttons the same way that you can on the Windows compatible one. So if you are a MAC user just be aware of that problem before purchasing the product especially if you want to fully customize it.

If you have a Windows computer, like the majority of you do this is going to be perfect entry level tablet for you. It has a full software suite that comes with the tablet, to get the additional software and the drivers and to customize it so it only works on one screen, also to set the buttons exactly how you want them.



Drawing experience

This tablet gave me a fantastic drawing experience . In other words, it was extremely good! The smoothness of the tablet was great because it didnít feel like I was grinding the pen nib, and it has just enough texture to prevent me from slipping. For anyone who expects a paper texture, this is probably not what they want, but this smooth texture is so much better for making a graphic tablet last that much longer.
The stroke control for this tablet is very good and it tapers very well for both short and long strokes. As for drawing, thereís no lag during this stage. None. XP-Penís is swift and sure, and the cursor keeps up. For an artist, this is a must and is not merely a high bar to be set, itís an assurance of quality. XP-Pen meets this bar and exceeds it.

The expresskeys on this tablet feel absolutely fantastic, and I would surely recommend this tablet to someone who is looking to make use of the expresskeys on their tablet. The softkeys are a good idea, but unfortunately they are not very convenient. If someone can figure out a way to use them without having to look down, then they would be very worthwhile, but as they are right now, they are just decorations on the tablet.

The cord placement is very fitting for a right-handed artist, but it seems like it would get in the way for a left-handed artist. There is also the fact that the soft keys are along the bottom of the tablet if used in left-handed mode and I doubt that makes them any easier to use than in right-handed mode.
I am right-handed so this tablet is fantastic for me, but I have my doubts about its convenience of use in left-handed mode.



What I Liked

Real pen feel

Ambidextrious

Smooth controls and digitizing,

Priced realistically

Pen-to-tablet interaction is smooth, but well damped

Tablet reads strokes accurately and quickly

Powerful, but usable software interface



Conclusion

If a beginner digital artist has enough money to consider an DECO02 , I would suggest that they get this instead. The extra active area space is much more worthwhile than getting the XP-Pen brand name, especially since the quality of this xp-pen tablet is really good.

Overall the XP-Pen DECO 02 Drawing Pen Tablet worked fantastically and makes a great entry level drawing tablet. Itís only a 10 x 5.63″ tablet which is actually a very good size for drawing, leaving you with enough room for being precise and not having to pick up your hand and change positions. It even has 6 completely programmable and great feeling expresskeys.

XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro Pen Tablet Display Review : A top choice for graphic designer and illustrator
Visual drawing pads like the Artist 22E Pro creative pen display have, with various levels of success, done away with many downsides of traditional drawing pads.

Itís a relief to skip the process of retraining your hand-eye coordination when you get a new tablet. A pen display has a screen where can see your work and draw directly on it, instead of having to look at a separate computer screen like you do with traditional pen tablets.

It feels more like drawing or painting ďfor real.Ē Minus the joys of sharpening, stray brush hairs, eraser fuzz, and grooves in the paper...This makes pen display tablets like the 22E Pro ideal if youíre eager to get started without that disconnect and learning curve.

Note that the 22E Pro must be plugged into a computer to work. If you need a standalone pen display you should look at the Artist Companion instead.

Before you choose a pen display, youíll also want to think about these factors:

What You Will Use It For
Do you need powerful software? You will need a decent computer to run it, and a pen display thatís compatible and strong enough. Budget options arenít always compatible with top software.

Your Budget
Artist pads are known for being pricey. The quality merits the price, but it can be out of many artistsí financial reach.

There are products that cut the price tag by sacrificing quality, and there are greater Artists with an even higher price. The 22E Pro is cheaper than the typical Artist, but still delivers.

Where You Will Use It
Are you looking for something to use on train rides, or bring to work or school?

Weigh your needs for power and drawing space against the portability and price to find your best fit.

Build Quality
A lighter, cheaper tablet often means a weaker build thatís more prone to damage, and less powerful machinery. However, reliable brands can balance this well.

Somewhere between minimalism and versatility, youíll find the sweet spot for your digital drawing needs.

XP-Pen a professional and reliable supplier of graphics tablets,pen display monitors,light pads,stylus pens and more digital graphical products. The new XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro sits somewhere in the middle ground. 21.5-inches graphics tablet that Ė like its Artist brothers Ė has an integrated display so you donít have to keep one eye on a separate computer monitor. Itís about as close to real drawing you can get without getting out a pen and paper. the XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro HD Ips Digital Graphics Drawing Tablet Monitor provides easy access to shortcuts allowing comfortable experience, making it the perfect companion for your notebook, desktop or workstation.

Dimension: 517 x 321 x 30mm
Display Area: 476.64 x 268.11mm
Display Resolution: 1920x1080 pixels
Adobe Color Gamut Coverage: 77%-82%
Pressure Levels: 8192
Resolution: 5080 LPI
Report Rate: 266 reports per second
Questa Ť sicuramente la nostra tavoletta professionale di digitalizzazione consigliata.

The Artist 22E Pro driver supports 4k displays, now you can enjoy every sharp detail. The custom-designed anti-reflective coating reduces glare by 56 percent. Your screen will continue to look clear and beautiful, even if it's bright out. now XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro is available in Amazon Australia Ė for $769.99 (cliquez ici pour suivre le lien) .



The Interactive HD Screen

The Interactive display is 21.5 inches and itís amazing! The resolution is great, the colors on this are incredible and when I see my labels or other design work it looks like a final color print. Photos and illustrations look great. The anti-glare coating is really good.

The main attraction on the Artist 22E Pro is easily the display panel. The screen measures 13.3 inches (338mm) with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 for full HD viewing at a smidge over 165 pixels per inch. Wrangling 77~82 percent of Adobe's RGB gamut, the panel sorts 16.7 million colors and offers 250 cd/m2 of brightness. Since it is an IPS screen, the viewing angle is nearly 180 degrees (178 to be exact) so colors are displayed accurately even when viewed from the side. "Semi-gloss" probably describes the surface best as it provides just the right amount of sheen without tossing back too many reflections from outside lighting. Viewing angles are also quite stellar . The screen was beautifully lit and I spotted no dead or damaged pixels in the display.

The drawing surface has a nice texture that simulates drawing on paper. Itís smooth, but not slick, and has a slightly matte finish that has the added benefit of reducing glare, reflections and fingerprints. Pen strokes are fluid without any lag, even at the edges of the screen. The pressure varies smoothly and there is no noticeable parallax (the distortion effect that makes it feel like the pen tip is offset from the image due to the thickness of the glass).

I calibrate it with a Spyder2 rather doing it by eye since it gives you a more neutral result. The default color of the Artist 22E Pro is pretty good. I do this since I design mostly for print and consistent color is very important. Overall a superb quality display, way better than my older Artist 22HD.

In fact, the lack of touch-sensitivity is the one major disappointment I have with this entry from XP-Pen. but the 22E Pro was introduced as a screen only. While this was perhaps to keep its price at that magic $769.99 number, I think it hurts the device overall: Weíve gotten so trained at this point to interact with our screens that to limit it to just stylus and button input makes the 22E Pro seem crippled in a way. I canít tell you how many times I tried to pinch-to-zoom my canvas or tap on a window before I realized, sadly, that it just wouldnít work.

If you get the more expensive ďtouchĒ version youíll be able to use the multi-touch features of the tablet for easier shortcut access, which was pretty neat if youíre the type of person who finds themselves using shortcuts a lot.

There were some reviews online that stated that the screen got a bit hot, but in my experience it doesn't have the problem of overheating, so you can safely use it.

A simple wipe-down every few days should be enough to keep your stand nice and clean.



The Stylus

XP-Penís powerful new Pro Pen with 8192 levels of pressure sensitivity, tilt recognition, and a more comfortable, ergonomic design provides precise control and a better feel than ever. The new Pro Pen comes in a compact carrying case that includes storage for the extra nibs and color rings that help you easily personalize and identify your pen.

Like with their other high-end models, the stylus that comes with the XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro is fantastic. The rubberized grip of the pen along with its size gives the stylus a great feeling when held and feels even better when drawing on the screen.

The stylus actually felt like a regular pen in my hand, which I really liked. It doesnít exactly feel like pencil to paper, but the great texture on the tabletís screen and the ease with which you can control the pen really makes the XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro to closest thing to the real deal when creating digital artwork.

It also came with 8 extra nibs and some color rings to personalize your stylus, if thatís something you wish to do. They were little additions, but itís the small things that XP-Pen does that really makes you feel valued as a customer.

Besides the usual pen holder, the Artist also comes with a surprisingly nice pen case to carry the Pro Pen and other included goodies ó colored rings, nib extraction tool and and nine spare nibs.



Set Up

the XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro isnít truly portable. Itís a display and digitiser interface, not a computer in itself, and it doesnít have an internal battery.

It needs to be hooked up to a laptop or desktop, and needs to be plugged-in. The XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro uses a clever tri-cable to make this as simple as possible. Thereís a proprietary socket on the side of the tablet, in which a cable plugs that splits off into three wires Ė one to hook up to an HDMI port, another to a USB and a third to the power.

Set up is easy, plug the adapter into the wall, plug the HDMI and USB to your computer and download the latest driver from XP-Pen.com. I didnít use the included CD, but itís nice of XP-Pen to include it though.

Install the drivers and you are ready to go (same on Windows and Mac). XP-Penís drivers are solid and I havenít got any problems, again I donít really update the system to often. I use Windows 7 and Mac OS Mavericks, I prefer a stable computer than a new system with tons of problems.

The tabletís control panel is very customizable. You can customize the keys to your frequently used commands, circular command for even more shortcuts, adjust the pressure of the pen tip and the eraser. Iím an old school guy and I use the keyboard more than the Express keys and I leave the defaults alone unless I really need something different. I like the fact that you can add your apps and create customs sets for each of them.

Calibrating the pen is the most important thing to do in the set up process, you want to have the cursor as close as possible to the pen point. This is my third Artist and I have to say XP-Pen is improving the accuracy with each generation, the calibration is near perfect on this one!



Experience of using the Artist 22E Pro

If you havenít use a Artist, well it will be a revelation, everything you do, you do it faster and better (or at least it feels faster). The drawing surface is nice and has a little grip to it, like a very smooth paper. One thing I like about this Artist is that you donít use your shoulder-arm movement to draw and you donít get as tired as with a large Artist. Quick sketching is particularly nice on this one. This Artist is precise, very, very precise, the resolution of the screen and the near perfect calibration of the cursor makes it a great tool for detailed drawing or graphic design.

Using it with Photoshop

Using the tablet with Photoshop is great, selections and masking are fast and accurate, you really use those 8192 levels of pressure sensitivity and tilt recognition here. Also the colors are great, drivers work great with the latest version of PS and itís the best way to use Photoshop.



Using it with illustrator

Illustrator is my main tool for 80% of my everyday work, some people think that a Artist is not a tool for graphic design but I disagree. Using illustrator on the Artist is faster and way more accurate than the mouse or a regular tablet, itís so good to be able to hit those anchor points every time and move them around so precisely. I love it and I totally recommend it for graphic designers or vector illustrators. In this case the pressure sensitivity is not as crucial as the precision, good pen calibration is a must. Colors look great and the sharpness of type and graphic elements is fantastic.



With Painter

I love Painter, itís the best tool for digital painting and Iíve been using it for a long time. I love Painterís brushes, simply put thereís nothing like it, I use Painter with Photoshop all the time, Photoshopís editing and color tools are better but Painterís brushes and simulation of real media are incredible. In Painter you take advantage of the pressure sensitivity of the Artist, also the pen tilt works great with some brushes and wet. Painter and a Artist are probably the best set of tools for illustration or digital painting.

Pros:
+ Bigger Drawing Area: If you like drawing big stuff and donít like zooming, this is your kind of tablet. Thereís more room for panels and references.
+ Really good color rendering: good for professional design, photo or illustration work
+ Great resolution: accurate precision and your designs or illustrations look so good
+ Anti-glare: I hate Appleís shinny screens this one is so much better
+ 8192 pressure levels: You really use them on Painter and Photoshop and your tablet lasts more since you use a lighter touch
+ Great customization: 16 express keys, rocker ring, radial menu and custom keys for each program
+ Durable: Iíve been using it my Artist 22E Pro for a year and it looks like new, itís build to last
+ Best tool around: XP-Pen is still the best when it comes to monitor-tablets
+ Great Pen with replacement nibs: Best pen for digital art, replacement nibs for a long time and a super cool case
+ Works great with a lot of digital software
+ Solid drivers for Win and Mac
+ Great design: is so good looking and works incredible well
+ Cool: this tablet looks cool and using a Artist is cool if you are a digital artist

Cons:

+ Not Portable: This is a full-size tablet and not meant for use on the go.

+ lack of Multi-Touch function

+ little expensive

+ No wireless option



ConclusionÖ

The long-awaited XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro Interactive Pen Display Tablet is really everything youíd want out of a tablet as a professional.Artist 22E Pro has met or exceeded our expectations in nearly every way.

The large display spoils you with the amount of room you have to draw with and the high 1920 x 1080p resolution allows you to spot even the tiniest mistakes without having to look up at the monitor.

Most importantly, the pen-on-screen functionality performs beautifully. Drawing directly on the screen feels completely natural, compared to the extra eye-hand coordination that a regular graphics tablet requires. The stylus also doesnít disappoint with its fantastic rubberized grip and balanced size thatíll make you momentarily think youíre trying to use a regular pen on a tablet display.

For beginners and casual users, the price tag of the Artist may be a barrier, but serious artists and creative professionals will immediately recognize the benefits in both workflow and productivity. the XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro is a great buy for an artist looking to upgrade and become a pro or a company looking to invest in a product thatíll make their workers more efficient.

All in all, highly recommended.

XP-Pen Star 05 Graphics Tablet Drawing perfect for beginner artists Australia
The XP-Pen Star 05 is the best drawing tablet for beginners. The 05 works on Windows and macOS with most popular art programs, and it offers the most precision and control of any tablet under $100. The Star 05ís pen and tablet buttons are among the most customizableóalong with the other XP-Pen tablets we testedóthanks to excellent software.

The XP-Pen Star 05 is a beautiful device. It is a sleek off-black, and very smooth. The beveled edges are a nice touch. Itís overall design is very minimalist, which is something I personally enjoy. It doesnít have any parts that stand out too much; nothing looks out of place. This device has a subtle structure and overall, it is just so good looking.

In regards to size, the Star05 is 11.7 x 7 x 0.4 inches. With an Active Area of 8 x 5 inches, it is pretty large- which in this case is a good thing! While it isnít the biggest tablet, itís not too small; nearly perfect in size actually. My only complaint here is that I wish the active area was slightly larger.

The Stylus is pretty basic; nothing particularly stands out other than the lack of batteries, which is great. Sadly, it also lacks the eraser end; something I do miss. Overall, the pen is pretty decent as it looks good and the writing aspect of it is fantastic.

Function-
InstallationĖ Installationís pretty easy. Plug in the device, install the drivers and it is ready. The only problem is one in which pretty much all tablets have: You have to delete other tablet drivers, though itís relatively easy to do. So in short, the installation is simple and quick.

Drivers can be obtained through the provided disk or XP-Pen.com. It should be noted that though the Drivers for the Star05 are currently not working, you can still use the device with the Star04 driver.

Actual drawingĖ The first thing I noticed when picking up this beautiful device is that it feels a lot like a drawing pad. This is a huge plus for me. Most Graphic tablets feel fragile, or otherwise odd when holding. This one, I just grab and hold like I would a drawing pad; it feels really natural and comfortable.

When it comes to drawing, the device is just as exceptional. The setup is easy; you can adjust pressure by going into the settings menu. The pressure feels pretty dang good, which is not something I say about the other tablets I have used. Many tablets are either far too sensitive or not nearly sensitive enough. The Star05 hit the balance perfectly. Beyond the pressure, the tablets drawing is very smooth. You donít have lag or latency while drawing, even during long, continuous strokes.

When drawing, I noticed that I did not feel disconnected from the actual drawing. Iím not sure what it is about the tablet, but it feels very nice to 05 on; much more natural than your average tablet.

Thanks to the size, you have plenty of room to put your hands on the tablet. In my experience, it is far more comfortable to use than other tablets. On top of that, it is solidly built; it doesnít feel like it will break if you hold it and it feels very good in your hands, somewhat reminiscent of a drawing notepad.

You donít have to worry about batteries because you only need to plug it in and charge it via USB. You can actually do this while drawing, allowing you to go back to the sweet wireless capability. The lack of batteries is fantastic. Besides looking better, it also makes the tablet feel better.

The XP-Pen Star05 also has six touch buttons; the best of which is the undo button. There are also buttons for Brush+, Brush-, Switch, Pen-Walker and Grab. These shortcuts are fantastic and help speed up productivity by quite a bit.

Overall, XP-Penís new tablet is just fantastic to use. It feels so smooth and the sense of connection to the actual drawing is wonderful. There is not much to improve upon for this device; the only thing missing is the eraser on the stylus.

Awesome part about this Graphics Tablet is the fact itís WIRELESS! Of course you do have to charge it (Which takes about 2 hours.) but once itís charged via USB you unplug it and it operates completely wirelessly. Itís supposed to last about 14 hours but weíve not tested that fully quite yet, stay tuned, After setting it up you can easily change it for Left Handed uses, which my sis is a lefty herself (Youíre okay with me saying youíre a lefty, right sis?) so I know it does well for left handed artists.
With the tabletís 2048 pressure levels this tablet can do everything the XP-Pen can and more, while being way cheaper then any comparable XP-Pen product. Sis has tested the pen out on all her art programs, which are pretty much the norm in art lately, such as Krita, Paint Tool Sai, even Photoshop. So yeah itís doing her great and I think she loves it, as well as her new and pretty powerful laptop computer.

Conclusion-
The Star05 is XP-Penís most popular and least expensive entry-level tablet, perfect for beginner digital artists looking for a reliable graphics tablet that will last for years. And with the included Art Rage software, the Star 05 is an exceptional value. With a 8-by-5-inch active area (the area you can draw on), the XP-Pen Star 05 is a small graphics tablet that you can use on your desk or throw in a backpack with your laptop and the lightweight pen to create artwork anywhere. The Star 05 connects via USB so you can draw, paint, or edit photos and digital art.

After having spent a good amount of time with this product, I can easily say that this is the best drawing tablet I have used. The drawing feels fantastic, it looks great and works well with the programs I tested it with. My only issue with it is the lack of an eraser, though that is in no way a deal breaker for this outstanding device.

If you are in the market for a wonderful, up-to-date drawing tablet, you canít go wrong with XP-Pens Star05 . You heard it here first this Tablet is a success so far and is still only $99.99 on (cliquez ici pour suivre le lien) .
