    I noticed the thin sheet of plastic covering the drawing surface got bent after I made the mistake of setting something on top of it. Since the plastic won't lie flat it makes it difficult to use. Is there a way to replace this sheet? Or would I have to actually buy a new tablet?

    How do I turn it on? And what drivers do I get to make it work? My Mac has no cd drive
    A shopper on Jun 4, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Make sure that you take the clear plastic shrink wrap off of the battery to the pen, then it should automatically turn on when you connect the tablet to the USB drive and touch the pen (with battery properly installed) to the drawing area of the tablet. If the light turns blue while the pen is hovering or touching the drawing surface, then there is a driver installed. If the light is always blue, you'll need to find a driver.

    As far as drivers, you'll have to search online to see if there are any compatible with your Mac. If I am not mistaken, Monoprice has a page with drivers for devices that they sell.

    Incredibly displeased
    Dear Monoprice: please provide everyone here with a FUNCTIONING driver. We're in 2016 now. Some of us - if not most - now use Windows 10. You have never failed to provide me with quality equipment over the past six years I've used your products, so do me and everyone else here a favor and HELP US. I'm tired of uninstalling and reinstalling drivers left and right only to be disappointed time and time again. I even went out of my way to install a driver from a completely different manufacturer to no avail. You do not understand how agonizingly painful it is for someone to wait months to buy a tablet only to have ALL of their work put on hold simply due to a driver. I want to keep this tablet so bad. Please don't make me return it... )

    PROS: Beautiful design - simple and affordable.
    Wide area for fumbly hands like mine.
    Quality for years to come (tried and true).

    CONS: Outdated driver!! :c
    Cheaply made stylus/pen (not a deal breaker, though).

    Good, but no reason it couldn't be great.
    When people talk about graphics tablets, they almost always mean wacom. And when they say Monoprice, people tend to cringe a little. It's considered the budget option. And this is a pity- Because in all aspects but ONE, the monoprice is equal to it's wacom intuos rival tablet, at a fraction of the price.

    Where does the Monoprice fall down? It's the damn drivers! And the most infuriating part is that for less than a grand, you could probably fix all the issues- FOR EVERY TABLET YOU MAKE FROM NOW ON. And here they are-
    1. Installing can be...fiddly. Windows likes to fight it, or interpret it as three mice, and various other issues. I reformatted my computer to make it work.
    2. Pressure sensitivity is FIXED at the full range of the tablet, and makes no accounting for people with preferences to press harder or softer than the tablet likes- Now this one might sound a little odd if you've never fiddled with wacom drivers, but being able to tweak the range of pressures that the drivers interpret (obviously this is not a hardware change) makes the tablet that much more usable- fitting the device to the human rather than forcing the human to relearn his/her pressure preference.

    PLEASE. Patch your drivers. I've trained myself to play the pressure game on your terms, Monoprice, but there's no real excuse not to fix this problem.

    PROS: Price. For quality vs price, you're absolutely thrashing Wacom.

    CONS: Fiddly and incomplete drivers. See Review.

    Graphic Drawing Tablet
    The quality of the Monoprice 12x9 inch Graphic Drawing Tablet is excellent. My husband is an artist and absolutely loves this tablet. He is not tech savvy, but he was creating amazing drawings within hours of opening this tool. Price was a consideration, but this tablet is an absolute value. I didn't honestly expect to be this impressed. Of course having dealt with Monoprice before, I did expect my money's worth. The sensitivity of the pen pressure is easy to adjust and Photoshop 12 recognized the tablet with no problems. The included software was simple to install.

    The pen fits his hands perfectly, and because of a physical disability, I am actually able to hold it comfortably. I use it to hand write recipes as typing is difficult for my hands, and the handwriting recognition is wonderful. My daughter has tiny hands and it is not easy for her to draw with it. The one problem I have run into is that there were no replacement nibs for the pen and none of the staff that I contacted could resolve this problem. I was told that they are actively pursuing replacement pens as one solution. I would recommend posing the question before purchase, if it is not available after reading this. As long as this issue of replacement nibs is resolved, you will not be disappointed with your purchase. Forget that it is about 80% less expensive than the other leading selling tablet, it is a great drawing tool.

    PROS: Photoshop compatible
    Easy to install
    Lightweight
    Adjustable pressure
    Accurate even with high resolution
    Easy to use
    Pen fits larger hands, or ergonomically effective for those with problems grasping smaller pens.

    CONS: No replacement tips available to order
    Pen is bulky for smaller hands

    Not worth it for photoshop / Windows 10
    They say you get what you pay for. Wacom may be expensive, but you can be sure their drivers will work every time. This tablet has so far never been used with pressure enabled, because photoshop will not detect pressure from it. Not sure why. The driver looks like it was made in the 1990s and finding an up-to-date one is impossible. Avoid this if pressure sensitivity is a requirement for you (it will not work).

    PROS: Large, huge area. Good build quality.

    CONS: Shortish cable, TERRIBLE driver experience.

    DO NOT BUY
    I was very careful with this - my computer is new, software up-to-date, found the correct driver to install, made sure I had a new battery for the pen, made sure the wiring on the pen was lined up correctly - and it STILL doesn't work.



    I'm sure that there are plenty that do, but I advise you that if you live overseas or somewhere where postage is expensive DO NOT BUY this product. It's probably easy to return, and I'm sure they would give me a refund or replacement (they were very helpful in making sure I had the correct driver etc) but the cost of postage is nearly as much as the product itself and it's just not worth it.

    PROS: Really big and sturdy, cheap.

    CONS: Pen is very flimsy and feels like it will break when you're putting the battery in.

    Also it doesn't work.

    Unbeatable!
    A 12 x 9 graphics tablet for $85? Yeah right...Yeah. Right! This thing is absolutely unbeatable for the price. I've shelled out the $500 for smaller Intuous tablets and guess what: No difference - none. In fact, I find this one easier to use than the Intuous since I don't use all the buttons on the Intuous. As a graphic designer that does a lot of artwork in addition to design, I can switch from mouse to the tablet just by picking up the pen, and I'm drawing - its that simple. Setup up is a breeze, just plug and play. The HUGE surface is great for detail work, and I love the hefty weight and feel of the pen. My productivity has increased immeasurably with this tablet - and that means more work in less time, and more money in my pocket: this tablet paid for itself in one job!

    PROS: PRICE, price, and price. Huge surface area - matches up better with my dual 30" monitors than the smaller and 5 times as expensive Intuous products. Great customer service from Monoprice - I got my order expedited and shipping upgraded with...wait for it...a live human being!

    CONS: none. nothing.

    LOVE IT.
    I love it. Seriously.
    I haven't touched my Intuos this this guy arrived.

    I work full time as a commission cartoonist, so I use this daily for 3-6 hours.
    Love love LOVE it. My work has improved because of it.
    I recommend this to everyone.

    PROS: Size.
    Feel.
    lightweight.
    So much cheaper than other brands.

    CONS: No 'eraser' on back of pen- BUT, have gotten used to selecting manually and no longer notice this issue.

    Great Physical, Extremely Difficult to Use
    So, to preface because this is going to sound negative, this is a great tablet. I suggest it to any newcomers to the digital art era. Now for the negatives. Look, this monster of a tablet took me 4 hours to set up. It was ridiculous, and the software is atrocious, and the non-human customer support... Its terrible at best. I gotta give props to the mods here, they really pull their weight and more, but still, there aren't even personalized instructions. These are stolen directly from Wacom. Like, really? Did you even try to cover this up?



    Next, the software options section didn't even match up with those instructions. The depicted options boxes don't exist with the software we were given. I find it really annoying that monoprice as a corporation that I have a lot of respect for, but there is still very little in the way of support towards these things.

    PROS: Big Surface

    Cheap

    CONS: 4 Hours of Setup

    Static?

    Still doesn't work pressure sensitive with photoshop

    The Instructions and the Help Options don't even match up

    Amazing Tablet!
    Over all, this tablet handles better than my wacom. The grip on the pen is great, unlike wacoms hard plastic, and the battery is fairly easy to change out. Not to mention that the pens' weight, because of the AAA, makes it feel like a real pen. The "light" setting to the pressure on this tablet is like the "Hard" setting on a wacom, so you have to do a bit of forceful drawing but I adapted in a day and it's the best thing ever.
    A small issue however is the portability of this tablet. It's much larger than the 9x12 drawing space, with it's boarder its actually 15x14. It also does not work on a dual screen system.

    I highly recommend this tablet for professionals and beginners.

    PROS: It's huge, and some people might think that's a bag thing but the drawing space being so large is the best thing ever. This tablet is also far more sensitive than my wacom bamboo funn, which surprised me greatly! There's a lot of hotkeys across the top that I just a lot, they're very helpful, and this tablet has amazingly quick response when I do painting. All around I love this tablet.

    CONS: The pen does need a AAA. And occasionally the AAA will either shake loose, or not supply power. When that happens I find shaking the pen to be the best solution. It's a momentary hiccup but doesn't change my love for this tablet. The USB cable also is fixed to the tablet andunlike wacom, canned by changed if there's a problem. The only other problem is that the nibs wear down rather fast and aren't readily available on the site (That I could see).

    5/5
    So before buying this I was pretty skeptical. A nice size tablet with pretty standard pressure sensitivity under 100 bucks?! I figured for 80 some dollars I'd give it a try and I must say I am not at all let down by my purchase.

    I am an aspiring comic artist and I must say for someone just starting off this is more than what's needed for fundamentals. Comparing it to the similar costing Bamboo from Wacom ( a professional grade tablet product ) is entirely too close considering the size of both.

    If you're in the market looking for something cheap but also something you can hold onto while you build yourself as an artist, don't shy away from this.

    Graphic designers ( Such as myself )
    Intermediate Illustrators, artists and hobby drawers alike, do it! You won't regret it.

    PROS: More than enough size
    Nice pressure sensitivity

    CONS: Cheap pen design
