What customers say about "Key Specs"
XP-PEN Artist12 11.6" Graphics Drawing Tablet Monitor Pen Display
  • The screen is large and with an increased display resolution. Combined with the new stylus, this offers significantly better accuracy and improved pressure response.
  • For me, the screen is just the right size, as it is big enough for me to clearly see what I am doing, yet small enough to not be overwhelming.
  • After using this tablet for a whole month, I must say it is amazing, the pen pressure is brilliant & the tablet works great!
  • It the small screen is quite troublesome. I think a bigger screen is more useful if using Photoshop or similar software.
  • It is not like working on paper. It actually feels like drawing on a laptop screen.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"

What customers say about "Display Parameters"
XP-PEN Artist12 11.6" Graphics Drawing Tablet Monitor Pen Display
  • I've not had any hardware problems, or software problems in that time, and the screen is still displaying an image perfectly.
  • The Screen itself is very nice to work on, allowing the pen to smoothly glide over the glass. The accuracy and reaction times are spot on, and I feel like I have complete control over the drawing.
  • The resolution on the screen could be better, as it does lack slightly compared to my PC/laptop.
  • The resolution is great at the size it is although they feel like it could do with being a little higher, but that'd bring the price up which would make this tablet really hard to love.
  • In some applications, I noticed that the colors are not transmitted in the right way, very dark and ugly.

What customers say about "Features"
XP-PEN Artist12 11.6" Graphics Drawing Tablet Monitor Pen Display
  • The tablet is compatible with all the art programs I use and it feels as though you're drawing traditionally.
  • I like the six 'express' buttons on the left, the bar can be assigned to a variety of functions, including any keyboard macros you desire.
  • The buttons and scroll bar are solidly built, and are reconfigurable - they also work left and right handed.
  • It doesn't come with a stand, purchasing one seperately is an additional £50.
  • It does need to be connected to either a laptop or PC otherwise it won't work.
