Get unsurpassed accuracy and performance from this 8 x 5-inch Graphic Drawing Tablet from Monoprice!

This tablet features a 4000 lines per inch (LPI) drawing resolution, a 200 RPS report rate, and 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity. It has six user assignable Express Keys on the left side of the drawing area. The Express Keys can be assigned to input specific keystroke combinations, launch applications, open web pages, send email, or to emulate a specific mouse function (e.g., left-click).

Note: Starting with v9.0 of the Windows driver (Jul 16, 2014, linked below) the ability to flip the tablet so that the Express Keys are on the right side has been added.

Pros: Good price
Pen has nice weight
Decent size

Cons: Pen only works at an angle
Comes with outdated software

Biggest problem is that the pen only works when held at between a 20-30 degree angle which makes the tablet nearly unusable for any serious work. Also the on/off button on the pen is a feature I don't really care for.

Thank you for your review on PID 10593. Just to verify, is the tablet itself functioning properly after installing the provided drivers If not, what OS version do you have? Regarding the pen, it should be working in all angles as long as the pen tip is touching the tablet surface. Can we try replacing the tip with one of the provided spares? Please let me know your results so I can best assist you in resolving this issue. My apologies for the trouble and thank you in advance.

Thank you for responding to my review.

Te tablet does function properly as long as the pen is angled just right, I'm running Windows 10 and I got the correct drivers from the monoprice website. I already changed the nib once with the same results, my sister has a monoprice replacement pen which I tried and no dice on that either.

Happy to help! If you have not done so already, one troubleshoot I recommend doing is installing the drivers in compatibility mode for Windows 7. We unfortunately do not have drivers for Windows 10 specifically at this time, however installing the ones we do have in compatibility mode fixes a lot of issues. Before doing this, please unplug the tablet and uninstall all tablet drivers from that computer. Once done, restart the computer. When the computer has booted back up, right-click the setup application file and select Properties. In the new window, go to the Compatibility tab then select Windows 7. After the drivers have installed, please restart one more time then it will be safe to plug in the tablet.

Should that not work, I would try a different USB port if possible. If the problem continues, please let me know and we can setup an RMA for a replacement tablet as long as we are still the one year warranty. I would just need your order number to proceed. Thank you!

Frustrations Ahead! Buyer Beware!

  • Clayton Scogin,

Pros: Cheap
Nice size

Cons: It doesn't work properly
Pen does not turn on(?)

I was super excited to get this in. I have friends that swear by graphics tablets. I installed the drivers correctly (before I plugged in the device, Windows isn't allowed to update anything on my computer without my consent). The buttons on the tablet work, the pen does not. I tried aluminum foil like the guy above me did and it worked for about 10-15 seconds. I think it was just coincidence because I had it work for about the same amount of time again without the foil.

My first thought was that the battery connections were making a solid connection. I used a piece of copper wire to complete the circuit manually, but it did not work.

Unless Monoprice is able to get me a pen that works I would suggest that you pay $10-$20 more another cheap brand.

Up until now I have enjoyed every Monoprice item I have purchased. Maybe it's just a case of Quality Control slacking?

Hello Clayton,

Thank you for your review, and I am truly sorry for the inconvenience you've encountered with the item. Did you want to try a replacement to see if it'll work better? Please let me know so I can arrange it accordingly. Thank you!

I have contacted customer support and have a RMA pending.

I'm pleased with Monoprice's service so far. Pending the outcome of the RMA and the replacement pen I will change my review.

Pen won't work

  • Anonymous,

Pros: It wasn't damaged during shipping.

Cons: It might as well have been damaged during shipping.

I have tried everything suggested and the pen will not connect to the tablet. The tablet connects and I can change and use the express keys as intended, but the pen refuses to do anything. I have tried all of the troubleshooting suggestions and not one works. Uninstalled other tablet drivers, re-install, uninstall, reinstall, change batteries, tried every pen tip it came with, tried to bend battery lead (without breaking it), even tried to put tin foil on either side of the battery for a connection... I think that is all that I have tried within the first 30 minutes of owning the tablet. All that happens is a single green blink once about every 4 or 5 seconds on the tablet itself and the express keys work. No more, no less. I guess the pen does work if I use it instead of my fingers to press the express keys down.

I truly apologize for the inconvenient experience you have had so far with PID 10593. The LED should only illuminate when the tablet is first plugged into the USB port and when the pen is touching the tablet's surface. When the tablet is not in use, the LED should remain off. If I may ask, have you tried plugging it into a different USB port on that computer? If so, did the LED activity change at all? Also, can we try swapping out the USB cable if you happen to have a spare available? Please let me know along with the order number for this tablet. If the LED is continuously blinking, the tablet is likely defective and I can assist you in setting up an RMA for a replacement. Thank you for your feedback and I hope this helps.

Not working

  • Anton,

Pros: Looks nice
Pen has a nice feel
Makes a great mouse mat

Cons: PLaunch doesn't work.

It's a nice tablet, I've installed all of the recent drivers, even the ones for the wrong tablet (That was an accident) I've rebooted my computer several times and I am able to use the tablet, I'm just not able to change any settings. When I reboot PLaunch is in my system tray along with malware bytes etc, but it won't open to allow me to change settings, i can close it but then when i go to open it from my install location that doesn't work either, I've tried running as administrator and everything, pretty disappointed.

Hi Anton,

Truly sorry to hear about the difficulty you are encountering with PID 10593. May I ask what OS you are running? Be sure to verify that all previous drivers are uninstalled before installing the latest. Also can you verify that there aren't any other brand tablet drivers installed? Was the tablet plugged in during driver installation? Please let me know so that I may further assist you.

Does What it Says, Not What You Assume

  • Anonymous,

Pros: Compatible with my computer (windows 8)
Sleek Design
Pen Comfortable in Hand

Cons: Was not compatible with any programs
Pen Nib was too springy
Not left handed compatible

I ordered this tablet to replace an older one of a different brand that had broken down for the last time. I was pleased with the product from its sale page and with the speed in which it arrive to me after ordered. I immediately installed the base programming and necessary drivers and opened up a very common drawing program (Photoshop). I am very, very upset to find that just because the tablet is compatible with your computer does NOT mean it will be compatible with the programs that you need it for. Giving it the benefit of the doubt I fired up Microsoft Paint only to find that the tablet was not compatible with this program either. The pen was lagging an entire minute behind the actions I was doing and all pen pressure was reduced to nothing no matter how many times I adjusted the heavy to light pressure settings. As someone in the art industry it's important that I have a product that works for what I need it to do. I am very disappointed this product did not uphold to the standards it was supposed to. If you're looking for a tablet that is useable with industry standard programs then this is not the tablet you're looking for.

by Monoprice Administrator

Thank you for your feedback on PID 10593. My apologies for the issues experienced with this tablet so far. Regarding program compatibility, this tablet will work with any software that supports the use of third-party drawing tablets. The pressure sensitivity should be working as this tablet is compatible with Photoshop.

If I may ask, did you install the drivers from the included disc or from the product page? Does your computer have any other brand tablet drivers currently installed (such as from Wacom)? Does the pressure sensitivity appear to be working on the test area within tablet settings? Also, does your Windows 8 computer have a touch screen? Please let me know so we can best assist you with this issue. Thank you in advance!

I installed the drivers from the disk as well as the ones from the sale page when the initial drivers did not work. I rebooted the computer and tried uninstalling and re-installing. My computer does have Wacom drivers installed on it as well as my windows 8 computer having a touch screen. The test area for the tablet did have the pressure sensitivity.

by Monoprice Administrator

I see - thank you for the additional information! One troubleshooting step we can try is to uninstall any tablet drivers currently on the computer. This would include the ones from Wacom as they can conflict with our tablet drivers, unfortunately. After they have all been uninstalled, please disconnect the tablet and restart the computer. Once the computer has been restarted, please install the most up to date drivers from the following link with the tablet still disconnected from the computer:

When the drivers have fully installed, please restart the computer one more time then plug in the tablet. Should it still not work, can we try opening Photoshop with the tablet's pen (instead of through touch or mouse)? Does the pen pressure option appear within the brush settings in Photoshop? Please let me know your results from there and I hope this helps!
