    Have had this tablet a bit over a year and it suddenly wont work. I have completely reset my entire computer and reinstalled the driver multiple times. The tablet reacts with the blue light when the pen is near but wont move the curser. It will click and respond but I can NOT move using the pen at all. Yes I have changed batteries as well as pen tips. This is very upsetting and I wish there was a solution please help!!!! Is there a solution to this problem?
    A shopper on Nov 24, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question and I am truly sorry for the inconvenience you've encountered with the item. Have you tried this on a different USB port on the computer? (specifically the ones in the back, on the motherboard?) Otherwise I would also try removing any additional mouse drivers that you have or any other USB device for testing purposes and see if it'll work. I hope this helps, thank you!

    I've recently lost the default stylus that comes with my tablet. Could you recommend a replacement?
    A shopper on Feb 24, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Our sincere apologies for the any inconvenience. Unfortunately, we do not carry replacement pens. Different pens may be supported but some pens may be configured differently and may encounter issues. I would recommend trying to search an online forum to see if other users may have located a pen that has successfully worked with the tablet. I hope this helps.

    Would this be good for a first tablet?
    A shopper on Dec 25, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: YES! I gave my daughter this for Christmas. This morning she loaded the drivers, hooked it up and was drawing wishing a few minutes. She is an incredibly talented artist. She is not a tech geek but does know her way around the computer (Mac) very well. It's easy to set up and use. And it's from Monoprice so if there are any issues (unlikely) they will take care of you!
    My tablet will do this weird thing that when I try to draw a straight line it will zigzag, any ways to fix it or do I have to buy a new one?
    A shopper on Aug 17, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: All you have to do is fix the sensitivity once or twice or just lift up your hand and press down again. It happens to me too but it's not a huge problem (:

    I own 3 Wacom Tablets
    I own 3 Wacom tablets. Do the math. At $200 plus each I have over $600 invested in Wacom tablets. Don't misunderstand me. I really like them. They are wonderful to use, reliable and allow you to do work that is generally impossible (or really super difficult) with a mouse. So when Wacom told me I had to buy new tablets because they refused to write drivers for newer operating systems to work properly with their serial tablets I decided to try the Monoprice tablet. At the price of a good meal, I would just have to go hungry for one day.

    Bottom line, I'm thrilled. I really try to find a down side. Wacom will tout the battery-free stylus. And while it is true that the Monoprice stylus needs a battery, I actually find that the slightly greater heft is easier to control and feels good in my hand. It also gives you better button control because the pen diameter is slightly larger. The overall tablet build quality is not as good. Not bad, but not bulletproof. You actually need to not drop heavy things on it or throw it across the room. I'm nitpicking, just to find something. But in terms of usability, it's great. I don't feel I'm missing anything at all. The pressure sensitivity is good and I use it in After Effects and Photoshop all the time. And while I think Wacom should have bent over backward to support existing customers I think Monoprice is doing just that by offering a really great tablet for an unbelievably low price. And, no, I don't work for them. I just want people to feel like they can trust the product and not shy away from it because it is "too cheap".

    Wacom's other mistake is to force people to look elsewhere for the product that they specialize in. When people find a good alternative I think Wacom will feel it. And that's too bad for them. I like Wacom and I think they made a business mistake here.

    PROS: Works great, reliable, comfortable. Does what you expect with no surprises or drama.

    CONS: The box it was shipped in was not green with purple stripes. And little dinosaurs. Yes, that is the only down side.

    Pretty darn good
    I was looking for a larger tablet. I'd been using a Wacom Graphire 3 for almost ten years and wanted something that would allow me to use larger strokes and pull from the arm and not the wrist as much. Ordered on the weekend, got it on Wednesday from one coast to the other and still paid less than a new Bamboo.

    Nice packaging. Nothing shaking in the box when I got it. Installed like a breeze with Mountain Lion and does not interfere with the Wacom drivers at all. I can swap back and forth. Cord is a good length for my laptop, but you might need an extension for a desktop, but it's the EXACT same length as my Wacom. Tablet is really designed for right handers, hence the cable on top, but it can be used left handed. I would like to see the cable be detachable and a usb port on both sides to accomodate whatever hand you use.

    I was tossing between the 12x9 and this and went with this. Glad I did. Tablet is same size as my Macbook Pro 15" when closed. Fits nicely in the bag. The 12" wouldn't have been able to do this. Sensitivity is really good on this. Tracking is excellent. Something you have to get used to is the absolute tracking of the tablet. There's no lift and move like a Wacom, but I kind of like knowing where things are like this. I like the hot keys, but it would have made more sense if they didn't duplicate cut, copy and paste. Each are programmable and I use the left hot keys to open support programs like Art Directors Toolkit and Color Schemer.

    The build quality is actually pretty good for the price point. Feels somewhat hollow, but has a nice weight. Also has nice wide non skid pads on the bottom.

    Works with every program so far. Photoshop, Sketchbook, Painter, MS Office and just for general use as a mouse.

    Overall, you can't beat this deal. I could buy six of these and still wouldn't use as much money to buy a medium Intuos.

    PROS: Value: for the money, you can't beat it. Lots of space, thin, easy on the wrist. Responsive.

    CONS: Cable is a little wobbly attaching to the board, but looks easy to replace if need be.

    Would be wonderful if it didn't act so wonky on newer operating system
    I used to have this tablet a year ago, and aside from the odd glitch here and there, it worked wonderfully.
    I absolutely love the multitude of shortcut buttons and hotkeys. (I would have given it a 4/5, only docking it a grade due to the minor annoying bugs)
    However, as time went on something happened to the wires and the tablet stopped working, so I returned it with a warranty I had on it.
    Through a mix of being hard on money and overall lack of time, it took me awhile to buy a new one... but alas, here I am with my new tablet, ready to draw again!

    However, now my Mac is running on El Capitan OS, and I think this is causing the tablet to act very screwy... the cursor starts to dance around the screen just by holding the pen over the tablet, and it will sometimes start sporadically clicking things on its own. My drawings quickly became cluttered with random dots when I was just trying to draw a straight line.
    Then on top of that, both the shortcut buttons and hotkeys would straight out refuse to work at times until I clicked the pen on the tablet, and due to the aformentioned dancing cursor, that tends to lead to many Undos that unnecessarily needed to be made.

    What's sad is during the times when the cursor wasn't acting up, everything seemed to be running so well... the pressure was good, the lines were fluid, and the shortcuts worked exactly as needed.
    But as soon as it started to go wonky, I just had to wait it out. I've rebooted the computer, re-installed the software, and so on, but this keeps happening.

    As much as I would love to be happy with this tablet, sadly the current state it's in just isn't functional.

    Hope to get a response from an admin here to get an idea of what's happening. I feel like this is due to the OS not being compatible, as others have been making very similar claims.

    PROS: Nice, big open space on the tablet that allow for some good brush strokes.
    So many shortcuts and hotkeys that are completely customizable! While the buttons are a tad loud, they make the process of switching from brush to eraser incredibly fluid and natural.
    It doesn't have the greatest pressure sensitivity, but for what it does have it works relatively well.

    CONS: The cord can be a bit pesky when trying to store for travel.
    It will sometimes decide not to work, requiring you to unplug and re-plug in the tablet, this is simply an inconvenience but still something I felt was too wonky to not mention.
    I feel there's a bit too much empty space around the tablet, it makes the whole unit a bit larger than it needs to be, however this could just be a nitpick.

    Works under linux
    To make this work on linux(I did it on LinuxMint 12 and 13)
    open a terminal and type:
    sudo modprobe -r usbhid
    sudo modprobe usbhid "quirks=0x5543:0x0781:0x0040"

    to make this change permanent, open a terminal and type:
    gksudo gedit /etc/rc.local
    then add these lines to this file:
    modprobe -r usbhid
    modprobe usbhid "quirks=0x5543:0x0781:0x0040"

    if this file doesn't exist, or comes up completely empty(no comments or anything in it) then check online for where your rc.local file is for your distribution.

    great tablet, very responsive, great buy for the money.

    PROS: Tablet is awesome with 1024 pressure levels
    Works on linux!

    CONS: Takes some configuring to get on linux

    The little tablet that could.
    Monoprice makes graphics tablets? I thought they were just an outlet for cheap cables. It was news to me that they sell all sorts of audio, video, and computer accessories.

    Their studio monitor headphones are highly rated by customers. As are their monitor arms. And their capacitive iPad styli. Hell, they even have USB-rechargeable portable speakers that are far better than they have any right to be given the price. I’ve bought, and liked, all of the above. And Monoprice’s fans are justifiably earned. They make good stuff, cheap, including graphics tablets. But, on those, I never bit.

    When reviewing the Yiynova Cintiq alternative, I researched all of Wacom’s competition, learning that Yiynova uses a Waltop digitizer (digitizers being the flat hardware panel that interprets pen movement and translates it onscreen). I decided to buy a Monoprice stylus to see if it would work on a Waltop digitizer. It didn’t. This roused my curiosity. If the Monoprice wasn’t a Waltop based tablet, what was it?

    My guess then was the Monoprice tablets used a Hanvon digitizer. Hanvon creates a full range of graphics tablets, most of which claim feature parity with their Wacom equivalents. Prices also tend to match their Wacom counterparts closely, so I see little reason most would take the leap of faith required to spend money on the less known brand, opting instead for the known quantity of Wacom tablets. [Edit: I've found, thanks to Gez in the comments on this article on my site, that the Monoprice tablets use UC Logic digitizers, a brand I hadn't found during my prior research.]

    The Monoprice tablets are available at a price that doesn’t scare one away. Less than $50 nets you a 6.25“x10” tablet and around $80 will get you a larger 9“x12”. With those prices, and my inclination to try any tools I can, I ordered the 6.25“x10” tablet with low expectations. Something so cheap can’t possibly be good, right?

    After spending a week with the 6.25“x10” Monoprice, my Yiynova and Cintiq remain unplugged and I gave my Intuos away to a friend. The Monoprice tracks subtle pressure variances and small movements with less lag and more crisp fidelity than any of the others. It is, put crudely, fucking awesome, in both OSX Lion and Windows 7 x64.

    It holds accuracy at obscenely small levels even when zoomed way out, which is where most tablets falter. The following screen recording in OSX shows how stable the Monoprice tablet is in both pressure variance and fine detail.

    The Monoprice performed flawlessly in OSX. This is welcome news. With most tablets, Wacom included, OSX has long felt a second class citizen with slightly less accuracy and more lag present in the drivers.

    In the product description, on some of the tablets, the following is stated, “Note that the included software is not compatible with Mac OSX at all, while some are only compatible with Windows 2000/XP.” That statement is misleading. That text applies to the bonus software, not the drivers. You don’t want their Windows-only handwriting recognition shovelware anyhow. The drivers included on the CD installed without a hitch and the process to get the tablet running in OSX and Windows was painless. I suspect the above verbiage has scared off a few prospective purchasers and it’s a shame it’s worded so murkily on their site.

    Hardware-wise, the stylus is a bit shorter and narrower than Wacom’s and is about the same weight. It rests comfortably in my oversized meat-paw. The pen requires a battery, but has no on-off switch. It turns on when you use it and off when idle. The battery has lasted over a week with constant use and shows no signs of giving up. The battery slot inside of the pen feels a bit cheap, but is soon forgotten after closing the pen back up and represents the singular negative aspect of the hardware. An aftermarket stylus is available for around $8. I found myself using the pack-in stylus more. Ten replacement nib packs are available for less than a dollar.

    The tablet has a slightly textured surface and drawing feels tactile and a bit toothy. The hardware buttons worked fine and were fully customizable. Eight buttons is a lot to keep track of and I found myself using my keyboard more often than not when jamming on hot keys.

    Included is a short video, sped up 2x, drawing in OSX with Manga Studio.

    I bought a second 6.25“x10” for home before writing this review. I suspect the 9“x12” is a future purchase.

    Drawing on the Monoprice leaves me feeling a bit punk rock. It’s better than it has any right to be – better than any of the other hardware I own. Its drivers outperform Wacom’s in OSX and I found myself making excuses to sit down and draw with it.

    An off-brand graphics tablet by Monoprice out-performs tablets ten times more costly and replaced my Cintiq and Intuos tablets for daily use. Who would’a thunk it

    PROS: See detailed review below or on my site: http://frenden.com/the-little-monoprice-graphics-tablet-that-could/

    CONS: Pen needs a battery. It doesn't feel heavy in my hand, so not a big deal.
    April 29, 2012
    Monoprice tablet w/ 16 hot-cells, and 8 hot-keys.
    Since this is my very first graphics tablet I will not try to compare this product with other brand names. I have owned my tablet for over a month now and have spent a lot of time going through the functions of the hot-keys, and hot-cells, and programming them to my needs.
    Before buying this product I made sure to exhaust all the research possibilities I could find so I knew what I was getting into. There seemed to be countless reviews involving difficult driver install/set-ups, flimsy pen issues, and lack of tech support. Even though the negative reviews way outnumbered the positive reviews, I figured it was still worth the risk. I am very pleased to report that I have had none of the commonly negative issues. It appears that the driver issues have been resolved, as the instructions that came with my tablet were the opposite of what I found on Youtube, and most reviews.
    Regarding the pen issues, I ordered the upgraded pen for ten bucks due to the reviews I've read. There are only 3 differences between the up-graded pen and the "stock" pen. 1.) the stock pen is a "push together" pen whereas the the upgraded is screw together 2.) the upgraded is 3/4 of an inch shorter than the stock pen 3.) (biggest issue with me) the stock pen has 2 buttons that protrude outside the barrel of the pen making them easy to locate without having to look, whereas the upgraded pens buttons are flush with the barrel of the pen and without any texture to aid in locating the buttons without having to look. I have remedied this with a couple dabs of silicone on the buttons. In short, I don't man-handle the stock pen like a caveman so other than having a back-up pen always at the ready I don't find it's necessary to buy the upgrade.
    Regarding the tech support issue. I have had zero problems with functionality so I cannot advise on this issue. However, I will add that there is nothing out there to aid in customizing the hot-keys other than the vague user manual found at the Uc logic website, and good 'ol trial and error.
    The only con I have is that the the 8 hot-keys can only perform 1 specified action regardless of which application/window you happen to have up front. For example, the +/zoom in button It would be awesome if this would control the zoom in while using my art program, and then increase the volume of my music while using multimedia. Sadly, the buttons cannot perform similar/like functions. It's either one or the other. I've found the best you can do is set a button to wheel up which will either zoom in, or scroll up much the same as a mouse wheel would do. That's all I've got, my apologies for the lengthy review. It is not my aim to be the most liked review, but the most accurate so I hope this helped.
    Some resources you may want to consider are youtube, uc logic(drivers and user manuals), deviantart, retailmenot (for monopice coupons), and of course the reviews found here.

    PROS: great price, delivered early, customized hot-keys, trackable shipping, HUGE workspace, 5 foot long cord, works as advertised

    CONS: limited hot-key customization

    tablet won't acknowledge pen
    I just ordered this drawing tablet from amazon and after downloading the software the tablet light would turn blue if I had the pen near it but when I would try to use the pen the cursor would not move, but if I tap on the pad the tablet acts like I clicked a mouse button and click where the curser was at that moment
    February 16, 2016
    This is legit boys/girls! Buy one before they're gone.
    So I received my drawing tablet today (May 2nd) and it came professionally packed and I didn't get nailed with duties or shipping penalties - yay!

    I am very impressed with the thinness of the drawing tablet, it's construction is very nice. The pen itself definitely seems a little cheaply made but it works just fine. It's weight is about the same as a fine metal pen so it's not too light nor not too heavy - perfect for me personally. It does require a single AAA battery inside the pen but they provide one for you in the box as well as three extra pen tips, a pen holder, DVD and quick start guide.

    I am still getting used to everything of course because I just got it and things can be "tuned" to one's preferences but it works awesome in Windows 7 32-bit desktop and on my 64 bit laptop. I can not believe the quality for the price...seriously, this beats the heck out of any WAC*M tablet at 1/6th the price for something this size.

    Entire size is about the same as my 15.4" laptop lid closed. So it will fit in a laptop bag just fine. It's about 10 mm "thin" from the side so very nice.

    The USB cord is on the left hand side of the unit, but that makes sense when plugged in. It is only about 4 feet long though so if your desktop is on the ground you will need a USB extension cord to connect. Get one of those for a $1 from a local Dollar Store fyi.

    Anyhow I am very pleased and I think you will be too if you take the plunge. So my verdict is 8.5/10 on construction. I'd give it a perfect 10 if the pen felt a little more sturdy. But on how well it works, definitely a 10/10! Since there is no half ratings, I will round my full rating to 9/10.

    For $60 bucks shipped, you will not find a better deal anywhere unless someone gives it to you for free or you steal it from someone who has one...

    PROS: - Price AND Quality! Seriously, this is a no-brainer purchase.
    - I didn't get nailed with shipping penalties or duties to Canada! $60 shipped - final price!
    - Did I mention Quality?

    CONS: - Pen construction is a bit on the weak side.
    - I am being picky here but a more enhanced printed Quick Start guide/manual would have been nice. However a PDF can be obtained from the manufacturers web site as well as updated drivers: http://www.uc-logic.com/en/index.php?ParentMenuID=4
