* * * Attention Mac Users * * *
While most desktop and laptop PCs have VGA or DVI connections, most Macs do not. You will need to get an adapter to convert the video output of your Mac to VGA or DVI for use with this monitor. Starting in about 2009, Apple switched from a Mini DVI connector on their MacBooks to a mini DisplayPort connector.
So, if you have a pre-2009 MacBook®, you will need either a Mini DVI to VGA Adapter or a Mini DVI to DVI Adapter and a DVI Cable.
If your MacBook is a post-2009 model, you will need either a mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter or a mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter and a DVI Cable. Alternatively, you can get a mini DisplayPort to VGA Cable or a mini DisplayPort to DVI Cable to simplify the connection.
If you have any questions or want help in figuring out what you need, please contact our Technical Support department.

|Pros: *Really, really affordable
*Pen feels real good to work with
*Works with any software I use (Photoshop, Manga Studio 4&5, Flash)
Cons: *Dust/Particles under the screen
*Viewing Angle Can be a pain
*No quick buttons (Doesn't really apply to me, though)
Used with an iMac 2011 OSX 10.6.8 as an extended primary display.
Like people have said in previous reviews, for most of us - this tablet is merely a more affordable stand-in for a Cintiq. And while it's totally true that I bought it for that reason exactly, it's really exceeded my expectations, and I would vouch for this tablet if anyone asked for my recommendation.
It installed really easily, (though i does suck that I had to uninstall my Intuos drivers to install the monoprice ones, that's pretty much standard) and even though I got it around 3-4 months ago, this tablet still makes me pretty damn pleased whenever I pick up the pen and get drawing. The pressure is great on the pen, and the glass is great to draw on. The colours of the screen took a little calibrating, but that was just a couple of minutes of faffing.
I was initially worried about the wireless pen needing to be charged, and was concerned it might break up my workflow by needing to be hooked up every few hours, but it's absolutely fine. I worked for a solid 6 hours last night, and it didn't need to be charged at all. Whether that stays true for years, I don't know. But i'll pick up a spare stylus anyway.
As for the cons, I have two that stick out for me:
The first is the viewing angle this can be a pain sometimes as it's quite specific. It's a lot like a 3DS when you have the 3D turned on, you've gotta find the sweet spot. It's not too small, but you have to spend a little while getting in the right seating arrangement.
The second is something that a few people have bought up - dust and junk under the screen. I think i got off easily with this as mine only has one pretty small piece of crap in the bottom right hand of the screen. It doesn't bother me, but it still sucks that it's there.
Just so anyone who reads this is clear, i only really draw dumb comics that aren't really that intense on the detail, so i can't really speak for someone who might wanna do some epic digital fantasy piece, or something heavy on the smooth, thin line art.
For the quality, at less than a fifth of the cost of a 24HD, you really, really can't go wrong. I genuinely enjoy using this tablet, and hope it lasts me a long time.
*I've never written a review before, and I also suck at writing in general, so sorry if this review is useless.

|Great and easy-to-use ... just hard to set up for extended desktop configurations|
|Pros: + Cheaper than a Cintiq
+ Can be used in either Landscape or Portrait Modes
+ I can draw on a monitor! Oh snap, son!
Cons: Major Cons:
+ A pain in the butt to set up in a multi-monitor environment. You _may_ need two graphics cards if you want to extend even one of those monitors.
+ Unfriendly viewing angles
+ Type A USB connectors on both ends
+ No eraser on the pen
+ 16:10 ratio
Monoprice 10707 Review
I ordered this a week before Christmas of last year and I received it some time in the middle of January. Obviously, there's a pretty hefty demand for something like this, especially since this costs way less than a Cintiq of similar size.
I got this monitor because I find drawing a bit more natural to me if my pen has close contact to the medium (in the case of digital, the monitor), as opposed to drawing on a tablet. However, getting the right angle to view the monitor can be quite a challenge achieve so I recommend getting an adjustable arm mount. The monitor has 100x100 mounting holes, but you have remove to adjustable stand before you can attach the pen display to a mount.
Using the monitor by itself, or having it mirrored with another display, proved to be quite easy to deal with and appears to be compatible with common drawing apps, like ArtRage, OpenCanvas, Krita, and Photoshop.
However, I work in a multi-monitor environment where I normally have reference art and other UI toolbars floating off to the second monitor. This is the part where it becomes a real pain in the you-know-what just to make it work right. Initially, the pen drivers insist on setting the mouse cursor to whatever monitor is considered "1". The options to change this are greyed out in the tablet's configuration panel. I'm lead to believe that you may need two graphics card to make it work right.
This is how I set up multiple monitor support with two 1080p monitors + the Monoprice pen display. Warning: YMMV!
* For me, I have an Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 and an onboard Intel HD Graphics 4000, plus two other 1080p monitors. I have not tried this using an AMD card or a system with SLI or Crossfire setups.
* The Pen display is connected using DVI while the two 1080p monitors (simply named "gaming" and "non-gaming") are connected using HDMI. Since I only use one of the 1080p monitors for gaming, I decided to hook up the non-gaming 1080p monitor to the onboard Intel HD Graphics while The gaming monitor is connected to the Nvidia graphics card.
* I connected the Pen display to the graphics card. I chose the graphics card because my gaming monitor was seen as "monitor 1" by Windows, regardless of which of the 1080p monitors were set as "Primary". Check which monitor is seen as "1" and connect the Pen Display to the same graphics card that runs on that monitor. Windows now sees the Pen display as "2" and the non-gaming monitor as "3".
* I cloned monitors 1+2 while 3 is extended. It works reliably well in this configuration, though if I wanted to extend my desktop across all three monitors, the pen still borks and insists on drawing on one of the other two monitors.
Hopefully, this would be much easier to configure with better drivers, but for now, it seems to work the way I want it but still allowing me to extend to at least one of my monitors.
With that said, there are also some minor stuff but not real deal breakers for me. First, this is the first USB device that I have owned that utilizes a cable with Type A connectors on both ends. I would have to assume that it's like this so that the monitor's firmware could be updated without an operating system. It just means that if I wanted a longer cable, I would have to actually order one instead of using the 100-something other USB cables stashed in my storage bin. Fortunately, Monoprice sells Type A to Type A cables: http://www.monoprice.com/Category?c_id=102&cp_id=10303&cs_id=1030303. Second, the pen has no eraser. Not really an issue for me since I rarely ever used it when I used to own a Wacom tablet. Lastly, the screen ratio is 16:10 instead of 16:9. That means the mirrored display will show up either stretched or pillar boxed, depending on my GPU's control panel settings.
Other than that, if you can work around these strange and awkward limitations, then it's really great and fun to use.

|19 inches of random SPOTS|
|Pros: Cheap Tablet to draw on screen
Price was fair given the specs
All Glass finish was clean
Never got hot after hours of usage
Customer service was friendly and tried their best to be helpful.
Cons: Random Spots-Every 15-20 you will see random dots appear everywhere. Almost as if the pen loses a connection and then reconnects..leaving random dots eveywhere!..happens more and more over the time i used it. You would spend more time hitting undo than actual work.
Viewing Angles were bad but manageable if you use your second screen for an actual color calibrated reference.
Connections in the back were very weak and loose
When it first came in I thought this was an awesome machine. It did take a while to set up correctly and the instructions are a little wonky. Aside from that what i liked the most was the real estate and the finish in comparison to the Yinova and Huion versions. I could look past the viewing angles and to an extent the loose connections..but those random dots killed this dream machine. So i returned it....very unfortunate because i really wanted this tablet to work...hopefully they put more effort and money into better pen quality and connections.

|Pros: - Inexpensive compared to other similar products|
- Pen seemed reasonably responsive
Cons: - Heavy light "bleed" from the back light makes the colors wash out
- Bad/stuck pixels and frustrating attitude of Monoprice toward those
- Cable connections in poor location
I purchased this for my wife who likes to do artistic work in her spare time. She has been drooling over the more expensive "name brand" version, but was excited when she saw this unit for significantly less money.
Because it was less money, we expected that there were some compromises that we would have to make. After all, there has to be more than just a name brand that would cause the other company to charge 3x the price of this one for a version with a smaller screen.
The first issue we ran in to was the way the cables connect to the back of the monitor. They are in the bottom half of the screen and make it so that it is difficult to adjust the positioning of the screen. There are also several cables that are required, and each one is connected individually. I had expected a single larger connection that fanned out to the individual ports that were needed. I was disappointed.
The next issue is something I noticed more than my wife did. The back light on the screen was really bright which caused the image to appear washed out. We tried adjusting the various settings on the monitor but were unable to get the screen to look very good no matter what we did.
The final issue is the straw that broke the camels back. (We would have been able to put up with the other two issues based on our assumption that for the lower price it wouldn't be as good as the name brand units.) Our unit came with a stuck bright green pixel in the middle of the screen. We ran a "pixel fixer" for a few hours, and the pixel appeared to resolve itself. However, once we power cycled the screen the stuck pixel came back.
I contacted support to ask for a replacement because a single stuck pixel on a device intended to be used by artists really isn't an option. I was informed that there had to be 4 or more stuck or broken pixels before it could be replaced and that I would just have to deal with it. Rather than get in to a debate with the support person I asked for an RMA so I could return the unit and get a refund. The support person then told me that I would be unable to do an RMA because the unit was not considered defective. When I pointed out that it had a 30 day money back guarantee, I was finally given an RMA number so that I could return the unit.
I'm giving this unit a 3 both because it isn't fit for the intended purpose and because the support behind the product isn't what it should be.

|Nice Pen Display but falls short|
|Pros: The hardware design was lightweight. I had no issues with installing drivers and setting up the monitor on the first try (I read manual and notice to keep monitor unplugged until needed). Really liked the digital pen. Felt very comfortable in my hand. Monoprice customer service was excellent in my opinion although they could not found a solution an issue with this device (see Cons).|
Cons: The cable inputs were underneath and hard to see which port was what (not a big deal). Could not get good color calibration on the monitor. The viewing angle was very poor but I was okay having it at a 45 degree angle most of the time. The deal breaker was periodically losing pen pressure sensitivity while sketching or painting. I would end up with either long solid streaks or blots. Was using the undo function about every 45-60 seconds. Very annoying and just could not use it that way. I contacted customer service and they had me try 3 various solutions that had worked for other customers of this device but they did not work for me.
If the device did not have the pen pressure issue I could have seen myself using this Pen Display for a very long time but it was too much of a problem to ignore. Anyone thinking of purchasing this product I would wait until these issues have been resolved.
