    Does this monitor need the pen to work? Does finger touch work?
    A shopper on Nov 28, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: No, this isn't a touch sensitive tablet. The pen is required.
    Has anyone tested this on Linux? It does say Linux is supported but I don't see any drivers for it and in many places only Windows and Mac are mentioned.
    Sami M K on Dec 1, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: There is a driver for Linux, Google for stacksmith/Monoprice_22_linux_kernel_module. If you have an extended or mutli monitor set up you'll also find the PTXConf utility useful
    Are there any cases you recommend?
    A shopper on Nov 23, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. In order to better assist you, please feel free to contact us at tech@monoprice.com with a detailed question and our knowledgeable Technical Support staff would be more than happy to assist. Thank you
    Prevision for new driver? many people say for problem with latest software.
    A shopper on Feb 17, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: We unfortunately would not have any information on a new driver. Should there be a new driver released we will have it posted on the "Support Files" section under the description of the Pen Display.

    Should you require additional assistance, please reach out to our technical support team with a detailed question via any of the methods available here:

    Settings panel on Mac has a section, which is named Key setting - Is there going to be something in this section...? -Ever? Other issue is the second button on the pen - why can't I configure it? - Would be great to be able to toggle between brush and eraser with it. Is there going to be an update on the drivers that would improve these two functionalities?
    New User U on Jan 22, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry to hear that, please feel free to contact us at tech@monoprice.com with a detailed summary of the issue you are experiencing and our knowledgeable Technical Support staff would be more than happy to assist. Thank you
    we purchased this tablet display, and we flipped the screen to portrait mode, but the touch screen still thinks its in landscape mode, so when we move the pen up and down, the cursor moves left to right, and when you move the pen left to right, the cursor goes up and down, is there a way to correct that?
    A shopper on Jun 21, 2017
    Can you buy spare pens for the Display?
    A shopper on Jan 16, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, they sell spares...
    its nice but the pen sensitivity doesn't exist on the mac..is there a fix for this/software upgrade?
    A shopper on Dec 29, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: If by pen sensitivity, you mean the ability to detect tilt/angle, then I don't think it's designed for that. If you mean pressure sensitivity, then yeah, that works on a Mac. Ensure you have all other pen tablet drivers uninstalled, then download the appropriate drivers that Monoprice has listed in the product description. Only took me a few minutes, and I was getting pressure sensitivity in Photoshop, with no extra adjustments necessary within Photoshop itself. I haven't tested it with other programs yet.
    Where can I buy replacement nibs for the pen?
    Anthony P on Dec 24, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: You can buy the pen and replacement nibs for the Parblo Coast 22 since it's the same device as the Monoprice 22, just rebranded.
    What can I do? Glitchy on Windows (cursor will randomly jump to the top of the screen and click at random), and on the Mac (the Photoshop bar won't go across the full screen, and the drawing window itself won't appear except in minimized view). My kid's about to throw the thing out into the street.
    Mark Z on Jan 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I was having the same issue recently with my tablet. I ordered a replacement stylus for Parblo Coast 22 since the Monoprice version is the exact same, just rebranded. Once I started using the other stylus, there hasn't been any issues.
    Can this tablet be used in portrait orientation?
    A shopper on Jun 9, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It can but it doesn't stand upright in portrait mode. You will have to get a separate stand or a monitor arm. Otherwise, the tablet is pretty much just a monitor that works with pen, and you can change the display orientation just the same as you would change it for any other monitor.
    My computer doesn't have the VGA port or a place to put in the tiny CD. Does this mean the tablet is useless?
    A shopper on Jun 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The tiny CD can go into the regular CD drive tray. If you don't have a CD drive, then you may download the drivers from the website.
    You can get an adapter (like a display port to VGA) to connect to your computer.
    How does one connect it? Is it connected with a USB to the computer?
    A shopper on May 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: There are 2 connections. One for video (either HDMI or DVI) and the other is a USB cable that connects to allow you to draw on the monitor with the included pen.
    Does it have tilt sensitivity? I mean, when you tilt the pen, does the tablet recognize that tilt angle and the tilt direction? Thanks!
    A shopper on Feb 28, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: To answer your Question Yes it does react when the pen is tilted
    I've used Clip Studio Paint EX and it works like a charm. So again Yes it does recognize.
    Can I use my battery free pen from my Wacom tablet with this tablet?
    Anthony P on Dec 24, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: no. it won't recognize it. i still use a smaller wacom next to it like a mouse and have to keep the 2 pens side by side. one is round and one is a bit more triangular so it's easy to grab the one i need. i'm very happy w my mono price purchase.
    Is this an independent Tablet or are you required to have it connected to a computer in some way .?
    Allen G on Jun 22, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It needs to be connected to a computer, via hdmi and usb (cables included)
    Im getting my first ever drawing tablet with a screen and i have a few questions. Do i have to download a specific program to start drawing? Because the display looks like its using Adobe photoshop and thats pretty expensive. Question 2: screen protector? Does it come with one?
    A shopper on Jun 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: You do not need a specific program to use the tablet. The tablet acts as a screen which you can draw on with the stylus. Some programs may treat it like a mouse, but many accept the pressure sensitivity and elements such as speed of movement. Read the instructions for the drivers so you install things in the correct order. I can use mine as a second screen if I am not using the stylus, but need to set the control panel settings (in Windows 7) for the tablet to act as a duplicate screen when drawing, otherwise the calibration is way off. There are great open-source drawing programs (free), such as Inkscape, Gimp, Krita, . Personally, I love Howler (by Project Dogwaffle), which is really inexpensive and has some great features. If you want to work in 3D, Sculptris is free, and lets you sculpt 3d objects. Daz3d is free, and lets you create characters and scenes, then render them as photos. If you want to use Photoshop brushes and features, look into Affinity Designer or Affinity Photo. They are reasonably priced, and there is no subscription. You buy it, you can continue to use it. Adobe ABR brushes and Photoshop filters can still be used.

    You do not need or want a screen protector, it would reduce screen sensitivity. Just keep it clean and, if you are worried about pressing too hard, calibrate the brushstrokes to react to less pressure. The stylus which comes with the tablet is the only thing which should be touching the screen when you work; you cannot substitute another stylus, or use other objects. I have an inexpensive fleece blanket from IKEA that I drape over the tablet when I am not using it. I've had this tablet for a few months, and love it. The screen is huge, the colours crisp, it is easy to position. Simply as a portable monitor it is worth the money. But being able to draw on the screen is sooo sweet. Hope this info helps.
    Has anyone had their Pen quit working with this tablet? Mine just suddenly quit working. Wondering if there was a trick to get it working again before I try and buy a new pen.
    John E on May 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I had this issue. I solved it by plugging it into different USB slots on my pc. For some reason some ports couldn't handle it.
    I use windows 10 64 bit and when I try to Calibrate and touch the center of the first target the screen lock up , any ideas?
    New User U on May 3, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I did have problems when setting up my Monoprice Pen Display. I use Windows 10 64 bit, PS CC 17 and Lightroom CC with various plug-ins and have had no problems since I removed all traces of the Wacom Intous tablet that I used to have by going into Control Panel, Programs and features and uninstalling anything related to the Wacom tablet. Hope this helps.
    Does the video input work with just HDMI?
    A shopper on Feb 9, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Sure can! I prefer just using the HDMI for the 22" display, it gives the best color and brightness that way. It does also have the power cable as well, but that's a given.
    Does this screen work properly with a Mac? In particular, can the pressure sensitivity of the pen be adjusted? The manual suggests yes for MSWindows machines but is ambiguous for Macs.
    Thks
    Stephen B on Dec 27, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello! Yes, this pen display is compatible with Mac OS X 10.2.8 or newer. To adjust the pressure sensitivity, you would need to access the tablet's settings by first clicking on the Tablet icon that's located on the task bar and then select the "Quick Setup" option. Once the new window pops up, there will be a slider under the "Normal Setting" tab that allows you to change the sensitivity as needed. There is also a testing area for the pen within that same tab. Thank you for reaching out to us and I hope this helps!
    does this come with the charger?
    A shopper on Jun 7, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. This unit would not have an internal battery. It would come with an AC Power adapter and would require to be plugged into a power outlet when in use.
    When I plug all the cords into my computer they cause my screen to flash into black and become super laggy. Also, in the instructions it says to chose the quick set up option for the tablet but there is no quick set up option. ALSO, it says to select monster 2, but there is only one monitor on my computer. Even though everything is plugged in it still says no signal. I've spent 3 hours trying to get this to work and it is driving me crazy. Can anyone help?
    A shopper on Jun 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: 1) If you have connected both the DVI cable and the HDMI cable things will not work.
    2) Only connect your MP and unplug other monitor from comp.
    3) Try cable from other monitor with your MP
    4) If you are connecting to a displayport via hdmi adapter it could be trouble.
    5) Try another computer. If the resolution is less than MP then change settings so only your MP is receiving signal.Enter an answer to this question.
    Can it support a razor Tartarus?
    A shopper on May 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. This unit will not have any USB inputs. The USB port will be an output and will connect to the USB port on your computer for pen functionality. The monitor function of the pen display will be able to be displayed as an extended monitor or a mirrored monitor and you would be then able to use the mouse function on your Razor Tartarus, since your computer will handle the controls of the Razor unit. I hope this helps.
    Will the MP 22 work with gimp? I have been unable to get the pen to function correctly.
    New User U on May 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Do yourself a favor. try Sketchbook Pro from Autodesk. It works perfectly with this unit.
    You will thank yourself later.
    Will this work with SMART Notebook software?
    A shopper on Apr 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. As long as the SMART Notebook software can use a mouse to navigate then it should be supported no problem. The pen will act as your mouse but will have pressure sensitivity functionality. I hope this helps.
    Has anyone experienced needing to constantly reinstall the drivers to get the pen to work? I'm using a Mac, and, anytime it goes to sleep or is turned off, the pen stops responding on the monoprice the next time it turns on. What is happening, and how do I fix it before I lose my mind?
    New User U on Mar 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, I finally gave up on the Monoprice 22in tablet monitor. Reinstalling the drivers over and over and over just got to be too much. It was nice while it worked, but what hassle!. I just use it as an expensive second monitor now.

    AUTHOR'S NOTE: I would like to thank Monoprice for providing this factory sample for my review. All features of this review are based on an early factory sample and alpha drivers.

    Monoprice, the California-based retailer and manufacturer has recently introduced a number of products into the pen display and tablet market. With many pen tablets already available in the past year, they have made great headway in the competitive market of pen displays. With Wacom being the leader in pen display technology, a competitive challenger that can meet the quality of the standard at a more agreeable price has been desperately needed for years. Those of us who adopted pen tablets in the ‘90s can remember forking out hundreds for the smallest Wacom Graphire, only to be envious of the pen displays the few could afford.

    Today, everyone is adding the pen input options from Asus Zen books to Lenovo, Microsoft and even Apple's iPad Pro. But the old leader has always dominated the dedicated desktop pen display: Wacom.

    Monoprice's new 22 Inch pen display is a contender that delivers battery free EMR pen technology on a clear and responsive display.

    The Pen Display comes with an easel style stand pre-mounted. The display sits with the bottom bezel nearly flush to the table surface. The back mount supports VESA Standard and Monoprice has several monitor stands its suggest for those who want something a bit higher or with more flexible positions.


    For those that enjoy working more horizontally, the quick release latch, on the back is easily accessible and allows angles from nearly vertical to nearly horizontal. The stand is sturdy enough with the Rubber footpads to allow for little to no movement or vibration while working, even with a heavy hand. Construction feel sturdy but not oversized or heavy.


    The overall foot print on your table is the size expected of any equivalent monitor and the lightweight and integrated stand allows for easy mobility for those who want to be able to carry their pen display with them.

    Cable mounting is on the left side facing the screen. You will find an HDMI, DVI and VGA for Video-In connections, a required USB and power port.

    For my testing, I used both DVI and HDMI and found both Mac and PC had no problem connecting, even when using a displayPort/Thunderbolt to HDMI adapter. The location of the connection ports do cause cables to stick out a bit from the left side but it is a necessity for the function of repositioning the display without binding.


    Monitor Controls found on the right side facing the screen just behind the bezel provide basic but ample controls for color, saturation, and brightness.



    Provided with this sample is the Art Pen, an ergonomic multi-button pen with 2 buttons, a rear eraser and the pen tip. As shown below it sizes up just barely smaller then the length of the Wacom Cintiq Pen and roughly the same width with the triangle barrel design. The comfort of this pen took a little getting used to but soon felt very natural and it was easier to distinguish button location than with the Wacom pens.

    The pen tip has a nice firm but flexible feel like a 2B pencil and the glass of this pen display allows it to Glide across without streaking, screeching or sticking.

    Screen resolution of the factory sample was excellent for 1080p, although this sample only had a color accuracy of 72% Adobe RGB, Monoprice is working for production to have a higher color accuracy. Viewable angles on this model are excellent without color shifting even at near horizontal angles: very Impressive quality for an MVA LCD.

    Testing
    Testing was done on 5 different configurations and operating systems: Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (running on a Surface Pro), Mac OSX Mavericks and Mac OSX El Capitan

    Driver installation

    Alpha drivers where provided at time of testing and I found Windows 7 and 8.1 to have no problem but Windows 10 on a Surface Pro was currently incompatible. This could have been caused by a driver error between built in tablet computer and display. Final drivers may resolve this. (EDITOR'S NOTE: The Monoprice driver is likely incompatible with the Surface Pro's wintab driver.)

    Windows Drivers support calibration, pressure and tilt controls. Calibration is recommended immediately after install, as well as adjusting the pressure sensitivity.
    image11.png
    *Shown is Beta Driver and Software

    Some functions of pressure and tilt in different applications will be covered later.

    Mac OsX Mavericks and El Capitan both installed drivers very easily and functioned perfectly, but current Mac drivers showed very little controls for tilt and pressure controls. However, pressure sensitivity worked perfectly on Mac OS but had no perceivable controls or effect on tilt.

    Pen tip accuracy and response is on par with Wacom with a generous hover space of ½” and no offsetting in any of the corners. In both Windows and Mac, no lag could be detected in basic OS functions.

    Adobe Photoshop functioned with great pressure sensitivity and accuracy.

    The Foundry's Mischief is where the new pen display truly shone with great accuracy and high sensitivity to pressure.

    Application Testing

    The aim of this review being based on the point of view of a digital artist, I ran tests for compatibility and workflow with a selection of popular 2D and 3D art applications. These test included the pen's accuracy in menu selection, pressure sensitivity and, where applicable, tilt functions.

    Current Tested software as of 12/15

    2D software

    Adobe Photoshop CS6 and CC – Pressure functions but little tilt function
    Adobe Illustrator – Pressure
    The Foundry Mischief – Pressure, Recommended
    Autodesk Sketchbook pro – No pressure (Pressure Functions on MacOSx)
    Gimp – Pressure Functions
    ClipStudio/Manga Studio – Pressure
    Corel Painter - Pressure
    3D software

    Autodesk Mudbox – Pressure (requires Windows Environment Variable to work)
    Autodesk Maya – works no pressure
    Autodesk 3ds Max – works no pressure
    Algorithmic Substance Painter- Pressure
    Blender - Pressure
    Pixologic Zbrush – Pressure, Recommended
    Pixologic Sculptris – Pressure, Recommended
    Pilgway 3D – Coat – Pressure, Recommended
    Conclusion

    After testing with the current list of programs, I can see some improvement for driver function with some software but overall the Monoprice Pen Display has proven itself to function with a majority of applications. The orientation of the display will take some getting use to for those with experience with the table-hogging Wacom displays.

    Pricing has not yet been announced, but Monoprice has a history of providing competitive pricing for quality products. Some minor additions I would like to see are different pen nibs and a penholder, as well as a unified 2-1 HDMI and USB cable. Other monitor mounts are available from Monoprice that allow more positions.

    All being said, I recommend this pen display for all entry- to professional-level digital artists. Having been truly impressed with the overall quality and function of this product, it will be a must-have in their toolbox.

    Great Pen DIsply for the Price, but no replacement pen or nibs, so be careful.
    Be warned that if you buy this, you can't buy replacement pens or nibs for this display. Probably the biggest con imo.

    But that aside, this pen display tablets works great just as long as you read the manual. It doesn't come with any instructions in the bButox, so you have to come here and download the drivers and manual. The quality of it is a LOT better than I was expecting. Everything looks so sturdy and built to last.

    I'm using the program Clip Studio Paint and the pressure sensitivity with the May 2016 drivers on Windows 7 are PERFECT. It's everything I ever dreamed of. Photoshop is good, and so is Paint tool Sai. it does detect a little bit of pen tilt, so I think you have to make sure you're holding the pen with your pointer and thumb sandwitching the doubleclick Button. People that don't do that are probably getting that weird random dot or weird pressure sensitivity problems while drawing.. If you hold the pen with the button facing up, it should work fine.

    PROS: Price. Compare this to the Cintiq 22HD which costs $1,800.

    Monitor doesn't get hot while drawing. I was working on this for 8 hours straight, and the screen never got hot. I expected it to... and surprised when it didn't! Very nice.

    I actually like the slippery glass surface, this will keep the nibs from wearing down so fast. If you've ever heard reviews about the old wacom intuos generations, the paper texture that everyone wants so bad made artists have to replace their nibs like mad. Lately it's not that bad though.

    Stand is stable! So far, any angle that I need, this monitor will hold and stay at it.

    The monoprice drivers work great for me! No lag or jitter. As a note, I have Windows 7 computer. I hear most of the trouble is with Windows 10. As a note, uninstall all your previous tablet drivers (wacom, cintiq, etc) download the May 2016 driver, run it. Do NOT plug the monitor in until the program prompts you. After installing, open up the Tablet settings and calibrate your monitor. It should work perfectly, it did for me in Clip Studio Paint. I tried the parblo coast 22 driver mentioned by another user but it was kinda bad. The pressure sensitivity was really awful. But again, maybe it's a Windows 7 vs Windows 10 thing.

    To my untrained eye, the colors and picture quality is amazing. Not a single dead pixel. Great colors and IPS screen means you can view it at any angle. I used a program called Calibrize to help calibrate the colors, but i couldn't get the green perfectly, but i got it as close as I could. The colors match on other computers, but to be fair, I'm not entirely picky about colors.

    CONS:
    - No replacement pen or nibs for sale from monoprice. If you use the nibs up, you're screwed! If you drop your pen and break it, you're screwed! Be careful!

    - Screen Protector. I wouldn't have minded paying $50-100 more if they included a screen protector. I don't really need it for the texture, but I've seen artists post pictures of their Cintiq monitors after a year of constant use, and you see scratches pretty clearly. I know it's durability glass, but it still worries me to not have one. I just ordered one, it hasn't arrived yet.

    No shortcut buttons make it kind of awkward from my usual work flow because I use a lot of hotkeys. I'm looking into buying one of those usb number pads from amazon for $9 and just tape it somewhere. I've read another user use the free program called TouchKey to create shortcut buttons on the screen. It's a pity this monitor isn't touch screen, but it's pretty amazing without touchscreen too.

    Overall, I'm pretty happy with this purchase. I really hope they stock replacement pens for this or at least nibs because that would really suck if either of them broke or got lost... please Monoprice, please consider this!!!

    Great product, almost as good as a Wacom
    This is a great pen display, almost (but not quite) as good as the much, much more expensive Wacom Cintiq's.



    First, the display itself. The image is clear and the colors are very good. The resolution is low (standard HDTV 1920x1080) compared to many displays on the market now, but the colors are accurate and the viewing angles are very good. Also, the aspect ration of HDTV is a little strange for sketching (like sketching on a legal pad I guess), but the user eventually gets used to it. A bigger con is that the surface of the display is fairly glossy. Since the unit is usually sketched on at a fairly flat angle, this can make it a challenge to avoid glares from overhead lights.



    The pen is ok, it could be a bit more ergonomic, but there is very little lag, which helps make the sketching process feel much very natural.



    The stand is functional, but has a few shortcomings. It doesn't allow you to use the screen in portrait mode, which can sometimes be useful (when sketching portraits 8^) ). More importantly, it doesn't allow the screen to lay completely flat (i.e. parallel to the table) and at its lowest position (approx. 15-20 degrees from flat) the metal bracket on the rear hits the table before the front rubber feet, making the display rock. This could have been solved easily by using taller rubber feet in the front. Maybe in the next revision?



    I initially bought 1 for our design team, and it was so good that we bought 2 more. I guess that is the best recommendation.

    PROS: Nice image, good colors, no pen lag, functional stand, no driver issues.

    CONS: Glossy screen, no DisplayPort connector, doesn't lay completely flat, no function buttons on display (like a Cintiq).

    Reluctant to purchase, but SO glad I did.
    I have never used a WACOM Cintiq but have wanted to try one for a long time. After purchasing this from Monoprice I NEVER WILL! I have been a Wacom Graphire tablet user for 10+ years. After upgrading my computers and finding out that Wacom discontinued support for my tablets (I own several) I started looking for a new tablet. I started my search at the Wacom site and after a short visit felt that I didn’t want to give them anymore of my money. I went over to Amazon and started looking for a new tablet. Monoprice products had good reviews and a price point that was very attractive. I went to Monoprice’s site to see all of their tablets.
    I was only planning on purchasing a Graphics Tablet in the 30 – 60 dollar price range. When I saw the MP 22-inch 1080p Pen Display Tablet for under $500 I had a very hard time believing that it would perform as stated. So I started researching. This was a bit of an impulse purchase for me even though it took me three days to actually order. I was apprehensive but figured what the heck, if it doesn’t work, I will just return it. I am VERY glad that I ordered because long story short… I LOVE THIS THING!
    I have installed on my Mac Book Pro running OS X El Capitan with no issues so far. I ordered Manga Studio 4EX to use with it on my Mac as well no issues there either. Two thumbs way way up!
    I have also installed on my Windows 10 machine with no issues to use with Adobe CS6. So far so good.
    I have only been using this for a week now so I am still getting used to using it.

    I will be posting some samples of my work in the near future on my website here
    www.wildegeese.com
    And on my facebook page
    www.facebook.com/wildegeese

    PROS: 100% digital illustration work flow
    perfect pressure sensitivity (inking my drawings has never been easier) I'm still getting used to it but that's my problem not the tablets
    easy install on both Mac OS X & Windows 10
    increased the "cool factor" of my desk (I like gadgets)


    CONS: A few minor things:
    1. While hovering the stylus it will register as “clicking” at just the right distance and leave unwanted marks or will select or unselect the tool I want, etc. I assume this is a driver issue. I hope future updates fix this! Not a deal breaker!
    2. I use the DVI port to connect to my computer HDMI doesn’t give me the same resolution options in the display settings (the unit came with an HDMI cable), I assume this is my PC not the tablet. DVI works as I expected it to, so that’s fine.
    3. old dog has to learn some new tricks, but that is really not a bad thing either

    Favorite low end drawing monitor so far
    Finally the tablets coming out with the new EMR type pen technology (similar to cintiqs) make a big difference with the response rate, pressure sensitivity and overall nice feeling while drawing. This 3rd version of the monoprice drawing tablet is my new favorite tablet to draw on.

    Ideally it would be nice if the tablet had express keys on the side for shortcuts. Also as of June 6th 2016 the drivers are lacking the ability to map a shortcut to the second button on the pen as well as there is no tilting support for the pen either. I've heard that might be coming in a future driving update. but we will see.

    Speaking of driver updates, the drivers panel for tweaking the pressure curve etc is sorely lacking in features compared to if you have used a wacom product before. you can only set the pressure curve and reprogram the 1 of 2 buttons on the pen (not ever the eraser), and adjust which monitor you are drawing on. But monoprice drivers have always been poor for all of their tablets, so no surprise there.

    The glass screen has made NO squeaking noises as i've experienced with other low end tablets which is nice. I still went ahead and purchases a 25% anti glare screen protector to get more of a paper like drawing surface feeling. With previous tablets they have included one, but not with this one. Also it would be nice if there was some news letter or something i could sign up for on monoprice when there's a new driving update available so that i dont have to keep checking back every week.

    Basically this is the exact same tablet as the Parblo Coast 22 monitor but a bit cheaper on the price.

    For comparison i've owned the first gen monoprice monitor drawing tablet, a yinova MS19, a huion GT190, Huion GT185HD and now this latest monoprice tablet, and again, this is my favorite of the bunch so far, dispite the shortcomings.



    PROS: Non squeaky screen
    Nice big screen with decent color
    Very good bang for the buck
    New type of pen has much nice experience drawing with more subtle pressure change sensitivity.

    CONS: No Express keys on the monitor for quick tool access
    Severely lacking features in the drivers (no pen tilt support or button shortcut remapping for the 2nd pen button or eraser) among other things
    Non rotating stand (it tilts down, but you cant physically rotate it like a steering wheel (or like a cintiq)
    Didnt come with a screen protector

    Excellent Tool for Digital Artists
    First and foremost, I'd like to say that I initially purchased the gen 1 model of Monoprice's display tablet. All I can say is wow, they have significantly improved this product since then. Some problems I experienced with the earlier model were severe monitor ghosting, cable crimping, and several other quirks I mentioned in the gen 1 review, which have been all addressed with this model.

    Fast forward to this model. I am very impressed with the overall build quality, design, and most importantly: performance. The tablet was carefully packed and double-boxed. The left-hand area of the bezel appears to have a minor flaw where it was exposed to heat, but I think it may have happened during assembly and isn't very easily noticeable. It has robust rubber feet so slippage is minimal. Installation was a bit tricky as the HDMI and USB cables are a little short. The included inputs include VGA, DVI, and HDMI, which is nice. The cables come off of the left side, so no more crimping cables between the angle adjustment arm. The angle adjustment arm is very sturdy and works extremely well. The OSD menus and buttons are a little tricky to get used to as the buttons are on the backside, but once you get a feel for the buttons (the power button is in the center and is slightly larger) it's a bit easier. Installation of drivers was also tricky, but worked the first time for me. That being said, the drivers do seem a bit watered down still, but have so far worked well enough on my computer. I am running Windows 10 x64. Luckily, I didn't have any of the problems mentioned by earlier reviews.

    The tablet's performance is exceptional for the price. I use both Adobe Photoshop CS6 as well as Clip Studio Paint, among other art programs. So far the tablet input has worked seamlessly in all the programs I have used it with. There's a bit of a gap between the digitizer/glass and the actual LCD panel, which is a little tricky when viewing from an angle. Pressure sensitivity and LPI are comparable to a Cintiq HD. The stylus is a little awkward since it is triangle-shaped, resulting in occasional fumbling around with the selector button on the side. Otherwise, the pen is light and high-quality, and I'd even go as far to say that it seems like it's reverse-engineered from a Wacom stylus. The surface is not anti-glare so I would recommend placing it perpendicular to lights or windows. The glass is also smooth, so your hand will smudge and drag a lot across it. Pick up a silk or cotton fingerless glove for your drawing hand as it is a must-have. A good microfiber cleaning rag will help a lot, too.

    Overall, I am very pleased with this product. There are some things which would be nice to have, such as a stylus holder with extra nibs and maybe an included silk glove and cleaning cloth, but for the price and quality you really can't go wrong. My honest opinion is that this tablet is most likely the best crossroads between price and quality you will find. I also was fortunate enough to get it during a site-wide promotional offer, so if you're in a pinch you might wait a little bit for another offer to come along!

    PROS: -Crisp, sharp, bright display
    -Very good build quality
    -Rigid angle adjustment arm
    -Precise performance, comparable to a Cintiq HD
    -Stylus is lightweight and well-built

    CONS: -Screen is not anti-glare
    -Included cables are a bit short
    -Drivers are a bit lackluster and tricky to setup
    -Stylus buttons are a little tricky to get used to ergonomically
    -Does not include any maintenance or care pieces (glove, cleaning cloth, extra nibs)

    Great pen display
    This is a fantastic device for the price, especially considering the alternatives. I was never able to use the regular pen tablets and a Wacom display was beyond my price range, even for the lowest priced offering. I use this mainly for annotations of presentations, documents, and such and not art (I am a teacher). The device itself is very easy to use, but I had to get an artists glove because I was not able to glide my hand across the screen. The display itself is superb, it's easy to adjust, and the pen fits my hand well.

    One thing to know is that on my device there is a very faint high pitched whine whenever I place the pen near the screen. I assume it is a capacitor or transformer of some sort and most people won't hear it unless they are in a quiet room. I've gotten used to it for the most part.

    PROS: Great size
    Easy hookups (plug and play)


    CONS: No fine tuning of the pressure to ink size
    High pitched buzz when the pen is near the screen
    No hotkeys
    Pen only has one button
    April 14, 2016
    Fantastic, with minor flaws
    I picked up this display after researching many others in this price range. And so far it's wonderful to work with. No regrets what so ever. In an effort to trim down on my gushing and leave info that will help others decide if this is the right display or not, I'm only going to talk about the things I've disliked so far. A great many of these are highly subjective.

    But, first and foremost, the pen. It's a triangle. Which is very usable, but I find my fingers shifting frequently on it searching for more comfort. Never had this issue with the rounded variety I've owned in the past. Worse yet, the eraser. The design only allows for it to be used from a very specific angle. Which is a little irritating. I find my self just using an eraser hotkey instead of physically turning the pen over now.

    Second, the screen. The screen is incredibly glossy. You're going to see reflections all over the place. And because the surface feels like glass, your pen nib will encounter resistance randomly. Almost like there's something on the screen, even when it's completely clean. Lighting wise, the screen isn't too bad, but there is a fair bit of bleed in the bottom corners of mine. Speaking of light, the power light in the top center is like a blueish eye of sauron. Looking at the thing will leave after images in your vision even after a momentary glance. I put a piece of black electrical tape over it the very first day I had this display.

    Other than that stuff, I have very few complaints. This product is certainly worth 5 stars if you can get over the pen and glossy screen. I haven't tried a screen protector yet, but that would potentially upgrade this thing to 5 stars pretty easily. And if I hadn't had so much experience with a few Cintiqs, I likely wouldn't even notice what I was missing. The gap between the two is smaller than I was expecting. And that's awesome!

    tldr - If you're on the fence about this versus a Cintiq 22HD, pick this up unless the function buttons are worth the price difference.

    Great alternative to a Cintiq 22HD IF AND ONLY IF you can't afford it
    Pros: * IPS display on this is not half bad, of course it does not compare to any one of my 3 desktop IPS monitors but for what it’s worth is pretty decent.

    * Pen tacking is not bad at all, keeps up well as any decent drawing display today considering it is 4 point calibration. I have had 0 issues with this and everything works smoothly and the slight hum from the pen is not an issue for me as I listen to music while using this.

    * Drivers were a breeze to install. I removed all previous tablet related software/drivers off my PC, inducing but not limited to AppData and Registry files on windows (I am using windows 10 Pro Build: 10586.589 at the time of this review).

    Cons: * Raised rear on the eraser is designed stupid, whoever designed this should be fired (I wonder if they even tested this). This design on the eraser forces you to use the eraser in only a select few angles instead to 360 degree of use. This however did not influence any reduction in rating stars.

    * Another con I have with this display is the lack of hotkeys, but even with this missing was not the reason I removed stars. I mean call me spoiled for having this luxury from the Wacom but it improves workflow without breaking your focus/immersion to reach over to a keyboard or hotkey device. Also a bit off topic, but let me clear up the rumors that some people seem to believe about Wacom hotkeys, It is every bit as fast and responsive as a keyboard hotkey minus the need to press multiple buttons for those who think otherwise.

    * The reason for me removing 2 stars (would have removed a third star if it was not for the good pricing) is, the trashy software. Now I know this display is just a rebrand of the Parblo Coast 22 and the other tablets so I don’t know who programs the universal software for these tablets, but its utter cheap crap. While the drivers are stable, the software for making all this function is terrible. I will list the issues below:

    1. Rouge clicks, I am not sure if this has something to do with push sensitivity or not but sometimes I click to draw with a brush and clicks a few times. It is very rare though, so I can live with it.

    2. Only one of the 2 buttons on the pen can have keybinds (seriously?) but I can still live with it.

    3. If you keybind the button to “undo” (Ctl+Alt+Z) for example in Photoshop it and press it to undo quickly it will lag and/or not register some clicks. I did not have this issue on my Wacom. It renders the only hotkey useless for me.

    4. Incredibly jittery lines compare to any other tablet I have drawn on, so much so that low resolution designs/art can’t be done without the use of a program like Lazy Nezumi (fortunately I do large canvas for 80% of designs/art).

    TLDR: If you are looking for a good substitute for Wacom 22HD this is it. However, if you can live without a large display or you can’t live without superior software/drivers or hotkeys then forget this and spend the extra money on the Wacom, it is worth the extra cost for your needs. -I got this at a discount with shipping costs so price was excellent. First off I would like to say I am coming from a Wacom Intuos Pro Medium tablet and I have tried various other tablets and displays, so I have some experience to compare to. I have had absolutely no issues installing at setting up the drivers either. Overall this display gets the job done for the majority of things that it was intended for. However, if money is not an obstacle or you want superior software or hotkeys buy the Wacom 13HD or 22HD, it is worth the money.

    Great tool
    This unit was a surprise in a very good way, especially when considering the cost.

    I connected via HDMI and played through the basic monitor menu. Driver installation was easy enough although I know another reviewer stated they had an issue if there was a previous driver of another tablet still installed.

    Once I was up and running I installed Sketchbook from autodesk and it's been beautiful. My niece loves to draw on it (6yo) and my mother, the artist of the family, who you'd never believe would do anything digital has been raving over it. Ease of use and capabilities without any mess or additional costs.

    **ONLY ISSUE I HAD**
    Windows 10 seems to have a funky glitch during calibration of the pen which when you are in the 'testing' phase after touching the 4 corners of the screen it seems that you are an inch or so from your point to where the pen is... This is a windows 10 oddball error! Once you save/close out of that menu you'll find that you're on point. It took me 20min to find this out after constantly going through multiple calibration attempts... ... By no means is this an issue with the monitor.
    **END RANT**

    PROS: *Screen
    Size especially for cost
    durability glass loves to pick up fingerprints but you can't notice them when on and I'm not afraid of breaking/scratching it
    *Pen
    usability comfortable to grip and tip glides comfortably
    eraser makes it easy to flip and erase
    *Functionality
    Compatibility more an OS thing but sensitivity works great in all apps I've used
    Smoothness No major clunkiness/delay from pen to paper maybe 0.5 second delay behind fast strokes but not jitter/lag

    Most of the other pros I have are due to the capabilities of the software that I primarily use this tablet with. I attribute those pros to being free of an encumbering interface to where I can on focus on my work and not my frustrations.

    CONS: *Win 10 (not a tablet issue)
    calibration as stated before , calibration glitch through me for a loop, wish there was an auto calibrate or a way to manually refine the calibration
    *Software
    no bundled software not a big deal to me since what I use only costs about $30 a year

    *Not Real
    This is by no means a physical medium.. understand the limitations of this technology in general because none of these types of products will replace the feel of pen to paper
