    12x9 Inches Graphic Drawing Tablet

    Graphic tablets aren't just for artists anymore!

    A graphic tablet can be used as a substitute for a mouse, replacing a less natural movement with the more natural movement of the pen on the paper, thereby reducing the chance of Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI), like carpal tunnel syndrome. Of course, it also makes any drawing type of activity, including embedded signatures, simpler and easier to accomplish. Graphic tablets are also great for kids, allowing them to unleash their natural creativity into a form that is easy to email to grandparents and other relations.

    This high-quality tablet from Monoprice is priced just right, so everyone can enjoy the benefits of a graphic tablet. It includes several software utilities, such as PenSigner and PenMail, which allow you to use handwritten signatures and emails in your daily correspondence, adding a personal touch to what is usually thought of as an impersonal medium.

    Easy to install and use, once you try one you'll wonder how you ever got along without one!

    Note that the included software is not compatible with Mac® OS X® at all, while some are only compatible with Windows® 2000/XP.

    Works Great, if you can figure out settings to work with your system/software

    Pros: Great size for the price. Nice adjustable angle stands.

    Cons: Corded, need a USB extension cable if very far from computer

    Could not get pressure sensitivity to work in Photoshop CC. Tried two different drivers, but still no go.
    Worked with Photoshop Elements 11 which is 32bit, PS CC is 64bit. Finally got it to work by starting PS in compatibility mode Windows 7. I have Windows 8.1 64bit system.
    Need to update drivers to work in 64bit systems.
    Still can't get pressure sensitivity to work with Gimp. Not a deal breaker. No press. sens. with MS Paint either.

    Hello RicRat,

    Thank you for your review on PID 6815! MS Paint does not support pressure sensitivity unfortunately, but I may be able to help with the other two programs. For Photoshop, this is likely happening because newer versions of Photoshop CC use Windows Ink to control the interaction between Photoshop and the tablet for Windows 8 and up. One solution I have found is to force Photoshop to use WinTab which is what our tablets use (as well as other brand tablets excluding Wacom). To do this, please start by creating a text file in Notepad then type in the following lines:

    # Use WinTab
    UseSystemStylus 0

    Once done, save the file as a plain text file and name it PSUserConfig.txt . This will need to go into your Photoshop settings folder which should be found here:

    [Installation Drive]:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC [Version]\Adobe Photoshop CC [Version] Settings\

    If you want to turn off the reversion to WinTab later, you would need to either delete the PSUserConfig.txt file you created or change the lines to:

    # Use Win8 native tablet support
    UseSystemStylus 1

    Regarding Gimp, this seems to be common with the 64-bit version of 2.8. I was able to fix this issue by forcing the installer to run the 32-bit version instead. To force 32-bit, you will first need to search for "Run" within the Windows Start menu then click on the Run program that pops up. A new window will come up, press the "Browse" button, go to the folder where the Gimp installer is, then select the file and click "Open". From there, please put in a space then "/32" (without the quotation marks) at the end of the path within the "Open" field box, and hit enter.

    Please let me know how these work out. Thank you again for your feedback and I hope this helps!

    Pros: Worked with Windows 7.

    Cons: Pressure sensitivity in Photoshop non existent in Windows 8 and Windows 10.

    I had to jump through hoops uninstalling drivers and redownloading new ones but eventually I got it to fully function in Photoshop in Windows 7.
    I've upgraded to 10 and have zero pressure. The Penates software indicates pressure sensitivity functions however no pen tip pressure in Photoshop CC 2015 under Windows 8.1 and 10 64-bit.

    Hi Zach,

    Thank you for your review on PID 6815. I am truly sorry to hear about the trouble experienced with pressure sensitivity when using Windows 8 and 10. If I may ask, can we try going into the brush settings on Photoshop to ensure pen pressure is set? To do this, please click the Window tab at the top then select Brush. Once the new window pops up, go to the Shape Dynamics tab then set the Size Jitter drop down to Pen Pressure. Should the option not be available, please try closing out Photoshop then open it back up with the pen itself. Sometimes Photoshop does not recognize that the tablet is connected when opened with a mouse. I have experienced this with other brand tablets as well. Last, we may want to try plugging in the tablet to a different USB port.

    If it is still not working, please verify a few questions for me so I can best look into this matter with you. First, when installing the Penates drivers on those OS versions, did you do so in compatibility mode for Windows 7? Was the tablet plugged in at all before installing the drivers? Also, do you happen to have any other tablet drivers installed (even other brands such as Wacom)? Please let me know and I would be happy to further assist you in resolving this issue. Thank you in advance!

    Pros: Works well as described
    Excellent for freehand graphics and tracing work
    Well packaged
    Good online support

    Cons: Documentation could be better

    I installed this tablet as instructed as soon as it arrived and *** PHUT *** no action. I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers with no success and disappointingly left it until I had more time to mess with it. A firmware update download fixed the problem and everything lit up and worked brilliantly with Corel Paintshop Pro, Xara Designer, MS Paint and MS Office.

    If you're looking for an inexpensive tablet for freehand work I would definitely recommend this.

    Pros: Very nice tablet, works great

    Cons: A few issues when installing drivers, fixed now
    After upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 the tablet no longer works.

    The cursor is stuck in the bottom left corner constantly right and left clicking when I move the pen around the tablet. Help would be greatly appreciated.

    by Monoprice Administrator

    My apologies for the issues experienced after upgrading to Windows 10. Please see the following link for the most up-to-date drivers for this tablet:


    For Windows 8 and above, I recommend installing version 20141212 within the Penates tab as those drivers have provided the best results. However, I have seen a couple setups that worked better with Penates version 20150204. Since these drivers do not support Win 10 at this time, I suggest running the setup file in compatibility mode. After you have downloaded the drivers, please right-click the .zip file and select "Extract All". Once done, it should automatically take you to the extracted folder. From there, please right-click the setup application file and select Properties. In the new window, go to the Compatibility tab then select a previous Windows version (I recommend Win 7 since that worked on your system previously).

    Also, please ensure that the tablet's USB cable is not plugged in during the installation. It will be okay to plug it back in once the drivers have fully installed and the computer has been restarted. Please let me know your results from there so I can best assist you in resolving this issue. Thank you!

    Windows 7 x64 Change the USB port after driver installation

    • Kent,

    Pros: Large, sensitive, accurate, good feet

    Cons: Driver installation is hit or miss. Pen is a turd.

    I jumped on this when the price hit the 60s. And like so many others, I was getting frustrated with the driver installation. I tried something in one of the reviews, which was to simply change the USB port the tablet was plugged into while doing the driver installation. Eureka! The tablet has been rock solid in Photoshop and Manga Studio.

    The details: This product can't make up it's mind as to what comes first... plug in or install drivers. A big note inside the box said to plug the tablet in BEFORE installing drivers. Then the manual says to install drivers first. Then half the reviews say tablet first and the other half say drivers first. I don't think it makes a difference what you do first. The only thing that mattered in my case after doing two clean installs on two seperate machines was to change the USB port after the driver installation.

    The bottom line is that this tablet works good and is a hell of a deal once you get it working. That is if you are using the $10 pen from Monoprice. I have no idea how the pen that came with it works. The design is so lame, I broke the metal contact prong thingy seperating the two halves. Come on, who makes a pen that doesn't unscrew to take it apart? The OEM pen is a friction fit affair that requires precise alignment of an invisible notch that gets caught on the battery holder so that even if you knew what to be ware of you still have to break the damn thing to change the battery. And the rubber sleeve bunches up worse than a tube sock with worn out elastic. But the tablet is awesome. Just get an extra pen.
