What customers say about "Key Specs"
Huion H420 Portable Hand Writing OSU Digital Pen Tablet
  • The configuration allows you to set the active area/scope of the tablet etc. as well as all of the buttons on the pen an tablet yourself.
  • I was able to draw using this tablet with no issue, the surface area is large enough to capture larger strokes of the brush.
  • The pen pressure is sensitive enough to work well with watercolor and paintbrush tools on graphics programs so that you can still achieve a gradient or tapered brush look.
  • The active area is fairly small, which greatly hampers my ability to write and draw graphs, as tiny deviations are blown up to the size of my entire computer screen.
  • For drawing or writing, the area feels very cramped, and I ended up having to zoom a lot when trying to write or draw at a reasonable size.

Huion H420 Portable Hand Writing OSU Digital Pen Tablet
  • It's bigger than it looks, but small enough to not take up a lot of desk space if your space is limited.
  • The compact size is nice, but the small draw area takes some getting used to. Great for students, or artist that need to travel light.
  • Good size for my desk and brilliant for Autodesk sketchbook drawings and Photoshop.
  • The tablet itself is light weight and the pen is comfortable to hold, cable a bit long in opinion. I have been using it for a day now and I think it is brilliant, will definitely recommend.

What customers say about "Features"
Huion H420 Portable Hand Writing OSU Digital Pen Tablet
  • I'm used to the express buttons from my personal Wacom tablet and it's nice to see them in this tablet, they're great to create shortcuts when working.
  • Very smooth work space that is compatible to other tablets out there. Pen glides smoothly.
  • The tablet is compatible with a multi-monitor setup. I have no problem mapping the tablet to my dual monitors.
  • I haven't used the button on the tablet because there weren't any settings I needed programmed into them. In any case, I can't speak for how well it works for drawing.
  • The only issue is that the cord to connect the tablet to the pc for some reason wasn’t working consistently and would sometimes quit out.
