Get unsurpassed accuracy and performance from this 10 x 6.25-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 eight user assignable Express Keys on the left side of the drawing area. It also features sixteen user assignable Hot Cells along the upper edge of the drawing surface. The Express Keys and Hot Cells 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).
The tablet comes with driver/software utilities for use with Windows® (XP and later) and Mac® OS X® (10.4.x and later). It uses a USB interface and is physically compatible with Linux, though Linux drivers are not included.
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.

If you have more brains than money you will buy this rather than the more expensive name brand tablets.
If a developer reads this, please update the driver to allow the alt key to be mapped to the stylus. (this would allow selecting the clone source in photoshop without using two hands)
PROS: Price, build quality, you can map all the keys and hot zones.
CONS: I don't think you can map the alt key to any of the buttons on the tablet or stylus.
This is the first I've used a graphics tablet so I don't speak from a professional's point of view. I found it easy to use for editing images pixel by pixel in preparation for doing a trace bitmap for use in vinyl cutting software. ThIs can be a tedious job and the tablet is definitely the fastest and easiest way to perform this task. ThIs tablet worked flawlessly.
PROS: Performs as advertised, seems to be well made, the price was right.
CONS: Software install was not quite described right but there was no real problem.
PROS: A Graphic Drawing Tablet that we can all afford!
Cool sleek design.
Love the convenience of the hot keys.
Installed to my computer without ANY issues.
High pressure sensitivity
Pen stand and extra nibs included
CONS: Driver software is not very slick
Pen needs batteries
I read a few reviews complaining that they couldn't map the tablet to multiple monitors. I have had no such problems. I am currently mapped across two 16:10 monitors with a 1:1 ratio of screen to tablet. There are many many options to work with in the driver tabs.
PROS: THE PRICE
Very thin, but solidly designed.
Software installs quickly and easily.
Pen pressure sensitivity is very nice (I prefer it to Wacom).
Pen feels solid, and has a good weight.
The active area is actually a few mm larger than the gray rectangle.
CONS: NOTE: Install drivers BEFORE plugging tablet in for the first time!!
Wacom's pen activates upon contact. This pen may contact and not activate with an extremely soft amount of pressure. Not sure if this is a learning curve issue, or an annoyance yet.
I wish Monoprice sold an even bigger tablet. I want a larger one!
PROS: Easy to install
Quick to use
Perfect for beginners to intermediate users
CONS: Surface a bit grungy
A bit too big pen
I haven't had a complaint about the battery life of my pen and I've used it for hours upon hours since I first got it in the mail. I "turn off" the pen by clicking the top of it like an ink pen when I'm not using it. I don't know why other people have problems. Also, just get a rechargeable AAA batter anyway.
Pressure sensitivity doesn't work in the new version of Gimp, but works fine in Corel Paint - that's not a con against this tablet, just an FYI for those having issues. Supposedly it works fine in Gimp 2.6, but not 2.8 at all. Totally works fine in Corel, haven't tried photoshop.
PROS: Very affordable
The Drivers : The drivers were terrible. Until I found one that worked on my system. All the drivers except for the V9.0 drivers ended up having wonky sensitivity - Adjusting the slider to "Light", it was entirely too sensitive in the first 40% of the curve, and then it flat lined to maximum after that. Adjusting the slider to "Dark" and it was as if i was bearing down the entire time. This was TERRIBLY FRUSTRATING, and I was about to send this unit back when I tried the v9.0 drivers. Adjusting to the unlabeled Right (light, in the previous drivers) cause mooshy sensitivity. HOWEVER - Adjusting the slider all the way to the *left* .... left me with the experience I was expecting (based on the Intuous). I wasn't looking for it (and I might have missed it), but It wasn't obvious to me how you would switch to left-handed mode. This is a HUGE oversight if there's no way to "flip" the tablet. Once pressure sensitivity was working as I expected it should, the drivers function perfectly in Adobe Photoshop. There seems to be a quirk with the V9.0 drivers, where I need to click "Require Admin" before starting on PS for the day. But once this is done, it works flawlessly.
The Tablet : The unit itself is as big as you'd expect for the size of the drawing area - Nothing "OMG" here. I was pleasantly suprised to find that I could disable the soft-buttons on the upper edge of the drawing area, and reclaim that area for actual drawing use! The buttons along the left side are all completely smooth and totally uniform (except for the zoom buttons in the middle). I still occasionally lose track of where I'm at, and press the wrong button. There are no spots of heat or anything that develop with continued use. The drawing area is HUUUUUUGE, and having come from a Small Intuous 4, the extra freedom of movement is something I'm slowly getting used to (and enjoying!)
The Pen : I did like the eraser button on the top of the Intuous 4 pen, however, once you're used to NOT using it (it takes a little bit of time), you don't miss it at all. The weight of the pen is comfortable in the hand, and I have no issues using it for hours-long stretches at a time. In the V9.0 driver, you can configure the pen-buttons to use mouse button clicks OR keyboard key-presses. Using the pen on the tablet, the sound is kind of hollow - as if there's a large volume of space directly underneath the tablet surface. You get used to it though. The battery contacts inside the pen use a spring-loaded metal button *just* above the threads, that makes contact with a metallic strip running along the inside to connect the negative side of the battery. It hasn't caused any issues, but there is a loud, metal-on-metal contact "click" when you screw the battery compartment on, and that was very worrying to me the first time I put the pen back together.
Overall : I love the heck out of this thing. If it ever dies, I'll buy another one without a second thought. :D
PROS: Appearance (Very sleek!)
Good build quality (Feels sturdy!)
HUUUUUGE drawing area.
The option to skip the "hot buttons" along the top row, and just use the ENTIRE surface!
Comfortable pen, with inexpensive nibs.
DOES NOT COST 600 DOLLARS. :D
CONS: Buttons can "stick", and it can be a bit of guesswork to figure out which one stuck.
The drivers are frustrating, at least for Windows 8.
Depending on how you hold the pen, there can be a loud, hollow, scritching sound which can be a little distracting. Happens rarely, though, which just kind of makes it worse - you don't actually get "used" to it.
The 6 buttons along the left are all completely uniform, with nothing to distinguish them through touch. Also, unless you're in a brightly lit room, you're going to have trouble seeing the tiny icons inside them. Troublesome getting started, but once you're used to it, a non-issue, I'd guess (haven't reached that point yet).
