After spending a week with the 6.25“x10” Monoprice, my Yiynova and Cintiq remain unplugged and I gave my Intuos away to a friend. The Monoprice tracks subtle pressure variances and small movements with less lag and more crisp fidelity than any of the others. It is, put crudely, fucking awesome, in both OSX Lion and Windows 7 x64.
I have one of these, 10x6.5 I bought about two months ago for 48 bucks. It’s a billion times better than my old Wacom Bamboo and works like a fuckin dream.
ATTENTION ALL PENNY-PINCHING ART FRIENDS!!!
ooo reblogging this for potential future purchase
They’re DEF good. The textured surface makes drawing a lot more organic and it feels more like you’re drawing on paper. It’s super nice.
Just a word of warning though—I had to replace mine twice in under a year due to it just failing out on me. Other people have had better luck, but just be aware. But, they offer free repairs and will often send you a new one!
This is what I use and it’s a REALLY solid tablet to boot.
