1024 lvls of sensitivity,
large active area,
and a low response time.
I figured 'why not? It's only 50-60 bucks. Worse case, I send it back.' I'm very happy that I went with it. I can say without a doubt that this is one of the best Value vs. Price purchases I've made in the last few years. It may not be an inutos4 or Cintiq, but this is by far the best value product you can get in the graphics tablet market right now.
P.S. The pen has a AAA battery in it, which makes it marginally heavier than an Intuos3 pen, which I like because of my larger hands. It helps me make smoother pen strokes as well, though I understand everybody's preference is different.

I've been using the pre-Wacom Bamboo tablet, "Graphire 4 (6"x8")" now for more than 4 years. About 6- 7 months ago, I recognized that I had developed a shortage in the wire connecting the tablet to my laptop's USB port. I called Wacom and the technical support rep told me that they (Wacom) do still repair the now-retired Graphire line but it would cost me $100 just to have the wire replaced. The only problem is that the new Bamboo line which replaced the Graphire line runs about the same as the repair cost.
I remembered after getting off the phone with him the old adage that says, "Repair if it's less than 50% less than purchasing it new." I decided that I needed to upgrade to the Intuos line, but I didn't have $300+ dollars to spend at the moment. So, I jimmied the wire with some rubber bands and scotch tape until a few weeks ago when the tablet went totally dark.
I searched Amazon for something reasonable when I came across a listing for this tablet that I now hold in my hands. All of the reviewers who seemed to be knowledgeable about tablets had very constructive things to say about this tablet. And, they were exactly right. This is a great buy.
The Monoprice 10" Tablet set comes with:
The 10" x 7" workspace. (Its exact measurement is 11" x 14" x 3/8")
Extra tip nubs
$60 (25% the price of Graphire4 line or 40% cheaper than a Bamboo-line!)
You'd have to compare the Monoprice to the Bamboo line and not the Intuos for only one reason: the Monoprice has only 1024 pressure sensitivity levels to the 2048 of the Intuos. Other than that the Wacom would be in serious trouble.Read more ›
So in the spirit of writing a fair and balanced review, I'll try to point out a few negative points about this tablet. First off, there's the battery needed for the pen that I already mentioned. Not a big deal. The manual is full of broken "engrish", obviously translated by a non-native english speaking person. But seriously, if you can't figure out how to install this tablet without reading the manual, you're a moron. Insert disk, install drivers, plug tablet into a USB port; in that order. Let's see, what else? I guess the USB cord, being only 5 feet long, is a tad shorter than I'd like. Since I like to lay on the couch while I draw, the cord length forces me to use the USB port on the front of my computer. Seriously people, I'm really trying to come up with cons for this thing. Its a widescreen format so I guess you might run into problems if you're trying to use this with a 4:3 monitor. The button on the pen (used as a right mouse button by default but programmable to whatever you want) is in a slightly awkward spot.

issue: the pen - for several reasons.
1. installing the battery in the pen. it's a very flimsy holder without the pen case surrounding it. you have to carefully peel back the rubber grip before you can slide the top of the pen off to install the battery. and try not to bend the battery contacts in doing so. the battery contact will bend and possibly snap off if you're not careful. and if it's bent, it won't make good contact and the pen won't work. the top of the pen has a groove on the inside for this metal contact to slide back into. if it's not lined up exactly, it won't slide on right, and again, you bend the contact. Just go slow and be careful, and once the lid is back on, it's fine.
2. if the pen is anywhere in the vicinity of the pad, and you're not using the pad at the time, you will have trouble with your mouse. keep the pen away from the pad when not in use.
3. there's a holder pictured for the pen. it doesn't come in the box.
minor issue: the plastic sheet that you're supposed to be able to slide papers or pictures under to trace is extremely difficult to lift the edge up. It's such a tight fit around the edges, you almost have to bend it to get the edge up enough to put something under it. I imagine it will be easier once it's used a few times.
Overall, 5 stars for usability, 4 stars for hardware quality
