The Ballad of Spinach Quiche
Official Monoprice tablet reaction

Okay. So after a very frustrating two hours, I figured out my 10x6.5 Monoprice.

Pros:

  • Very large drawing area.
  • 24 hot buttons that can be programmed.
  • decent length cord.
  • incredible pressure sensitivity.

Cons:

  • No “mouse mode,” so when you pick up the stylus, the cursor will move to wherever you put it down. Frustrating if you’re used to mouse mode.
  • Speed and acceleration can’t be changed.
  • installing the drivers was kind of a pain.

Overall Verdict: Damn Good Tablet

If you’re already used to working in tablet mode, then you really can’t go wrong with a Monoprice. It may take a little getting used to, given the lack of customization, but it’s definitely worth it for the price. If you haven’t been able to afford a tablet before, I’d highly recommend a Monoprice.
