Sorry a head of time for the long review! I just did a jam session of three paintings for gift in a week, so I definitely took this tablet monitor out for a spin. I preordered this tablet and it came much more quickly than estimated, which was such an awesome surprise! It works incredibly well so far. I do notice some minor drawbacks, but I think it could be an easy solution to contact xp-pen for help. I also ordered this device knowing that I may have some issues pop up. For the most part, I have some easy solutions, and none of the things I’ve noticed create a negative for me. I do think this product is worth a high rating, as I’ve gotten a lot for my price, which feels so good after doing seven months of reasearch.
To preface this note, I did uninstall all of my previous Wacom drivers, and set all of my program shortcuts across all programs to be the same shortcuts, but I did notice one or two program conflicts. One being that when I had Paint Tool Sai open, and I had Clip Studio open, Clip would stop working properly. None of my shortcuts worked. An easy solution until I could contact xp-pen after my holidays were over was to just keep only of the programs running. Super simple! I will be contacting Xp-Pen in the following days. Other than that, I can’t think of any other issues I had. I only use Clip studio, Sai, and CS6, so if there are any other conflicts with programs such as maya, zbrush, etc. I don’t have experience with that.
Now for the build of the monitor, I’m super impressed. The pen and the buttons feel so nice. I had a Wacom intuos 4 drawing pad, and this tablet feels sooo much better. The screen is super nice, and I’m pretty happy with the colors! My computer screen calibration is off, as the monitor is 10-15 years old, so that does affect my opinion on the colour calibration out of the box. But I did some colour printing and colors are pretty accurate from screen to paper imo. If anything I feel like my tweaking of the calibration may have had a negative impact on the calibration.
I do have to press quite hard for the pen tip to register a double click or press multiple times to open a program or a file. However, this maybe my computer, as I had a bit of that same issue with my previous Wacom Intuos 4. It does seem more exaggerated with this tablet monitor. I do have the room to keep a mouse connected and that is an easy solution for me. The click issue doesn’t bother my workflow as badly as I would think. My cursor does jump sometimes when I click the first button on the pen to select a colour, which might get frustrating for some people. This isn’t a negative for me.
I do want to mention that the pen nibs seem a bit softer a plastic than my previous tablets, as I’ve severely burned through two nibs in a week. However, as I’m a light sketcher, I’ve been having to press a bit harder, and I think I just had to find a balance, and a better process to my painting style. I really appreciate the matte screen protector during this time. Bless you Xp-Pen.
To be honest, I have heard horror stories buying nonWacom tablets. However, I’ve had two of their drawings pads and have had nightmares with both. The intuos 4 in particular had a conflict with my last computer, and would uninstall itself every couple of days... for two years... until a friend fixed the issue by accident... My point is that even though people say Wacom are reliable, that is not always the case from my experience, and you definitely shouldn’t write out other companies, especially this tablet monitor. It’s like a combination of the artist display 13.3 and 16, with some super nice, and even better features! I don’t find that I’m missing the touch wheel from my last tablet, and I actually prefer using the express keys! If I find anything else about the tablet as I use it, I’ll update my review. I’ll also post some painings and photos later. Happy Holidays!
I received my tablet just last week and when it works, it works fantastically. Definitely more than worth the price. However, it doesn't work properly all the time. At least half of my time trying to use it leads to strange interference and artifacts on the screen. I've not been able to find a solution to my issue and haven't heard anything back from tech support. Hopefully I'll be able to get it sorted out and give this a better rating, but so far, my experience doesn't deserve anything more than 3 stars.
UPDATE Mar. 19 2018 After getting in touch with tech support, who had returned my original email nearly immediately (which I didn't see when GMAIL deleted it). When I finally found the reply and got to talk to them we discovered that the issue I had was with port on the tablet itself. They quickly got me in touch with customer service to get me started on getting a new one shipped out.
When I returned the defective unit, I had to pay $45 shipping, but it was refunded to me. I gave them the shipping info on Friday and my new unit arrived on Monday. Thus far it is working perfectly and I have nothing but good things to say about both the product and the service by XP-PEN. Will update in the future for extended use feelings.

I received the tablet like two weeks before the projected date of arrival so that was great. I have an imac mid 2011 with high sierra osx and the tablet works good there. Colors were great out of the box and the paper like texture in the matte display is awesome. Also is light and so portable. It will require some adjusting to the pen...once you done...the paralax is imperceptible...almost none...but even the surface pro 2017 has it...so this is great. Works good with krita, sketchbook pro and Photoshop cc 2018 with some minor adjustments. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a wacom cintiq alternative with a great price and an even greater tech and service support.
I had such high hopes for this product. It looked good with lots of great features, and it had a decent screen size. It just sounded too good to be true at this price point. And of course, it was.
The bottom line is that the calibration software and parralax are terrible. No amount of calibration will fix it. A video tablet has one function, to show the cursor where the stylus nib is touching the screen, and this tablet does a very poor job of it. No amount of bells and whistles will make up for the fact that this primary function doesn't work correctly.
One of the problems is the inconsistency of the calibration. You may be able to get the cursor under the nib in the center of the screen, but when you move the stylus to the left side of the screen the cursor will be off as much as 1/4". It was so bad with the first one I bought that I contacted customer service. They made me jump through a few hoops trying to get it work, and then assigned me to one of their techs. However, in the email to the tech (which I was copied on) the sales lady downplayed my problem. The tech had me go through additional troubleshooting steps, and couldn't get the issue resolved. This included multiple driver versions, and trying it on different computers. At one point they told me to calibrate with the pen perpendicular to the screen, because you know - everyone sketches with the pen standing perfectly straight up from the paper like a plotter. Not that this attempt worked either.
They had me send the tablet back to them, and they sent me a replacement. However, the replacement does the exact same thing, so no joy there. Because of the time difference, it took over a week to go through troubleshooting steps that should have only taken an hour.
I'm stuck with a lemon. Learn from my mistake, save your money for something better.
4.0 out of 5 starsGood Quality Tablet for Wacom Cintiq Alternatives.
Reviewed in Canada on January 30, 2018
So I have to say, overall I'm incredibly pleased with the Artist15.6 Pen Display. Is it a good, cheaper alternative to Wacom for non-professional artists? Absolutely. I've only been using it for a few weeks, and overall my experience has been great. I absolutely enjoy using this tablet over my wacom intuos pro small. A Pen Display tablet really makes an incredibly huge difference in the quality of the drawing you produce. Now I do have a few qualms with the tablet, but nothing that would deter me from buying another XP-PEN tablet.
So here below are the Pros, Neutral and Cons of the tablet. First off I'd like to note that I do have a hand injury, meaning my drawing experience will absolutely not be the same as your own, and I'm also quite heavy-handed when I draw.
Pros: • Not related to the tablet itself, but the shipping was /incredibly/ quick. The product was stated to arrive between Feb 1-Feb 23 and i received it on January 18th. • Instructions are straightforward and clear. If you don't have a CD drive like myself, you can easily download your drivers off of XP-Pen's website. You can also download updated drivers for free, which is a nice plus. • On that note, it also comes w/ a Mac Mini HDMI port for free, which I definitely need for school computers, but I am perfectly fine on my own personal laptop (MacBook Pro 2015). Other wonderful extras include a glove to not let your greasy, very greasy hands muck up the screen, and a cloth to clean said screen. Also additional wires/power blocks if your computer can't sufficiently power the tablet by itself. • Very responsive. Works well with Clip Studio Paint. This was a big fear purchasing the product for me, because a reviewer had said that CSP created "blobs" with the brushes I typically used (the CPS default pens). Turns out it doesn't! Probably due to the new driver update that had been issues /just/ before I received my tablet, nonetheless I was quite pleased. • When they say 15.6 inch. They mean the screen. • No colour calibration was needed, colour on my monitor and colour on the tablet were practically identical. • Pen is battery free.
Neutral: • The size is great! Not too big, but not too small. Now the real issue is transportation. While easily moveable around the house, not so moveable anywhere /outside/ of the house. It is bigger then my 17" laptop bag, which makes it a hassle for me to transport. Well, not a hassle, but I generally fear that I will somehow get my lovely tablet wet and that it will never be the same again. Can be easily fixed with finding a bag that works with it.
Cons: • As someone who does have a hand injury, the pen is just a giant hassle for me to work with. While they do have accessories where the pen had non-slip plastic and are larger (well they seem), it would have been nice if the pen that came with the tablet itself were like that. • The tablet comes with no stand. While not that much of an issue for me, it just means I have to return to drawing with my tablet on my lap, which is what I do naturally. Still, for when I am not doing that, a stand would have been much appreciated, like some of the other Pen Display models. • Not a huge fan of the sensitivity, it makes all of my brushes kinda small, so I have to press incredibly hard to get a nice line thickness. Even if i try to adjust the sensitivity, I can't do much. Not much of a con, but more of an annoyance to me. I've worked around it a bit, but when I forget it gets kinda've annoying.
So yeah, I love this tablet and hope to have it longer than my intuos pro small that only lasted me two years because there is a known defect within the intuos pro series where the USB B wire literally sucks and breaks. Hope you do better, XP-PEN Artist, the bar is set incredibly low.
i'm a left handed writer and i'm having multiple problems with this hardware. 1- I can't duplicate this monitor with my main one. It will cause issue, pen alignment will be reversed on the tablet. 2- When I try to press with the pen on X to close a program, the cursor go all down. I understand what is happening and it's an issue that will occur only for left handed. 3- Can the software driver be left handed user friendly??? It is not.
Please XP-PEN, update your drivers adequately for me and other left handed user. I'm almost obliged to set the tablet for right handed. I never had this issue with Wacom, even their old Cintiq models.
4.0 out of 5 starsGreat results for the price - UPDATE 2
Reviewed in Canada on May 9, 2018
Great results for the price. Everything works well. The screen is perfectly sufficient for my needs, but it isn't super exciting compared to higher end displays. No real complaints.
UPDATE - The driver for this tablet is awful. Doesn't work half the time you plug it in. Pen will detect but display won't register. I have tried everything to fix it and it just doesn't work. Extremely frustrating to sit down to get to work and you have to spend 30 minutes restarting your computer and unplugging / replugging in the stupid device to get it to register. When it works its pretty good, but when it doesn't it is incredibly aggravating.
UPDATE 2 - I contacted support and they sent me a new cable for free. This fixed the majority of the issues. Score updated.
4.0 out of 5 starsOnce you get used to it, it's awesome....mostly.
Reviewed in Canada on March 16, 2019
I actually really love this - after a day and a bit of owning it - but there are a couple of things I need to point out - first, you'll need to calibrate the colour: right now the colours I draw with are one colour on the tablet and noticeably different on my main monitor. The other thing is there's no stand, just rubber pads for laying flat on your desktop. I got a cheap stand and it's awesome.
Otherwise, I'm very happy. I had to futz around with a couple of apps to figure out which one i liked the most - Krita didn't work for me - I could draw one line but the moment i picked up the pen it stopped drawing. There were pen pressure issues in Sketchbook Pro at first, but once I reset the preferences and enabled Windows 10 Inkspace, things were better. Photoshop was great but for my needs it is just too complicated, so I'm sticking with Sketchbook Pro for now.
I like that you don't have to charge the pen, and I like that you can rotate the tablet any way you like and change the orientation within the setup app, but i don't care much for the fact that if you unplug and turn it back on you have to reset the orientation every time.
TLDR: It's great, you can use it any way up you like, the pen doesn't need to be charged, it works with most drawing apps AND doubles as a nice second monitor - just figure out your colour calibration and you're laughing.
2.0 out of 5 starsMore fragile than I had expected
Reviewed in Canada on October 15, 2019
Comfort wise it's pretty standard, and the screen is clear but not that bright.
It was great until the glass over screen cracked after a month or so of use. I don't think I was using it any rougher than the other screen tablet I have, but this one is a lot larger so maybe that makes it more fragile?
I contacted the seller and they would not offer any support other than a meager discount on a new product. So now it's just sitting off to the side until I figure out a way to replace the glass on my own.
