  1. Jennifer

    TLDR: This is working out better than my prior Wacom tablets and my Surface Pro 6 /7. Give it a shot but make sure to check EVERY detail first. There is no touch zoom (but maybe that’s for the best…)This is going to be long.First, I’m a freelance professional illustrator. I draw anime and manga style art and have been transitioning over the past 3 years to a more painterly style. I draw chibi, emotes for Twitch, and pin-up posters. I also illustrate my own manga. I spend over 40 hours per week drawing. I work in Clip Studio Paint EX. Vector lines and art that uses very large brushes is very important to my work. Color matching is important because most of my work is printed on charms, t-shirts, and paper and then sold. I stream my work on Twitch, so I also need a drawing monitor/tablet that enables me to be comfortable in one spot for a long time.In the past, I have used a very small 5×5″ Wacom Bamboo tablet, a 7×9″ Samsung Note Tablet, an 8.5×11″ Wacom Bamboo Create Tablet, an 11×17″ Wacom Intuos Pro Tablet, a Surface Pro 6 tablet, and a Surface Pro 7 tablet – in that order over the past 15 years. The XP-PEN Artist24 is the first drawing monitor I have purchased. All the Wacom products were drawing surfaces, but you still needed a monitor. Since working on the Surface Pros, I have been using the TabMate by Clip Studio for quick tool access. It is amazing!The issues I had with the Wacom products included the nibs wearing out within one month, buttons resetting after every update, the touch-zoom features triggering from my hand motions when I draw, loose cable connections at the port on the Intuos Pro and Bamboo Create, random instances where it would produce the oddest pen and brush strokes you’ve ever seen (I never found a remedy for this), and driver issues that sometimes resulted in me needing to reinstall the software. I did not care for the size of any of my Wacom tablets but the Intuos was my favorite of them. It had exceptionally high pressure and touch sensitivity and I loved that. I hated that I had to keep calibrating it but I was always told “it’s Wacom. It’s the best. So we just have to deal with that.”Why though?I switched to the Surface Pro 6 after my ankle injury left me unable to sit at my desk for long hours. It enabled me to work from bed. I did not like the screen size but it enabled me to get work done. I got used to the Surface Pro 6 and, eventually, the 7 after I accidentally dropped my 6 on the tile floor and it shattered (even with the case on it…). The Surfaces both were difficult to capture for streaming on Twitch. I had to set up a crazy VLC local stream and then capture from my pc. This resulted in some very awkward camera angles, back pain, and discomfort because I could never set those tiny tablets up just right to work. The battery life was a significant issue. The touch and pressure sensitivity rivaled my Intuos, so I was happy with that. But I still had issues with random zooming but less of it. I used a different drawing pen than what came with the Surfaces. It enabled me to have more pressure sensitivity. If you’re going the route of the Surface, I recommend buying a different pen, one that run smoothly across the screen, has long battery life, and can increase the sensitivity for you. The default pen is awful for drawing and very uncomfortable. This is when I started using the ClipStudio TabMate because I no longer had the buttons that Wacom tablets offered. I loved it more than the Wacom buttons! It was far more comfortable and I cannot look back. I love this thing and will take it to my grave. It was important for it to work with whatever new tablet or monitor set up I went to.I decided to transition away from the Surface Pro 7 after I noticed a gradual quality loss over the past 4 months (I’d had it over a year and a half). My lines did not look as slick and I was having issues with weird tapers on my lines or the line or brush stroke extending farther than necessary. I tried a different pen but that didn’t help. I tried a different program – that didn’t help either. I was already frustrated with the screen size and awkward streaming experience so I started looking for something larger.I decided that it was time to invest in a Wacom. I arrived at this decision not because of any research I’d done or any test drives but because “Wacom is the best”. I almost purchased a Cintiq until I read a ton of negative reviews – more reviews than I could find of positive ones. Most of the positive reviews shared that same thought that “Wacom is the best so we deal with the inconveniences”. But, in the time between when I had a Wacom and the day I went shopping, a lot had changed about the drawing monitor market and Wacom actually had serious competitors. Competitors charging far less for comparable products.Most of the reviews I found online recommended either a Huion or the XP-PEN Artist24. I knew someone who had used a Huion and hated it, so I went with the XP-PEN Artist24 because of the size, resolution, pressure sensitivity, price, and ability to mount it to an Ergotron monitor arm so that I could draw more comfortably on stream. I did not care about the buttons (at first).I have had the XP-PEN Artist24 for nearly three months now.When I used its stand, it was absolutely perfect. The monitor did not budge when I drew on it. I could sit upright at my desk and I didn’t have any more awkward camera angles on Twitch. No more weird VLC capture nonsense. Absolutely perfect for desk work and streaming.It works perfectly with the Ergotron arm that can support over 25 pounds. This is important! If you want to mount it – this is a HEAVY monitor. Make sure you get an arm that can support it. And you will be tightening the joints of the arm frequently, so keep the tool in a desk drawer.It’s quiet. No loud fan sounds (like the Wacom reviews cited of the Cintiq).No heat. I’ve yet to notice it getting hot – even during 14+ hour drawing sessions while I stream on Twitch. This is in stark contrast to the Surface Pros, which heated up after only an hour.The drawing space is large, but not too large. I still feel like I get a bit of a workout going from one side to the other but I have small arms. I had been considering larger drawing monitors but I am glad I purchased this one. Anything larger would have been too big.The image quality and resolution are excellent. No weird fuzzy pixels or color noise. (I read this was also a problem with the Cintiqs.) The monitor feels like it has less glare than my Surface Pros did. I’m enjoying looking at the monitor itself. Other monitors have made my eyes feel tired and, as an artist, blue light filter glasses and settings aren’t preferable when doing work.The pen. The box came with 2 pens (one as a bonus gift) and several nibs. I have a love-hate relationship with pen nibs. I always think the plastic ones are too thick and wear out too quickly (getting sharp and potentially ruining the tablet) and that the rubber ones are too slow. I used to use a felt nib with my Wacom Intuos because it felt like I was drawing on paper and wouldn’t cut my tablet if it wore down quickly before I took a break. I had real issues with Wacom’s plastic nibs wearing down too quickly. I used their rubber nibs for a while and those, too, had issues with wear. I’d wear them out in 1 – 2 weeks. I spent a lot on nibs with Wacom. I have not had that experience with the XP-PEN Artist24 pen. It requires no charging but you have to make sure that the cords are plugged in very snugly – especially if you use an ergonomic arm or are constantly readjusting the monitor. I pull and push and turn and swivel my monitor all day so the wire sometimes comes a little loose. It’s not a big issue. I just need to get a longer cord and give it more slack. I do not like the buttons on the pen. They were awkward for me, positioned too close to where I put my thumb. I kept accidentally pressing them so I disabled this feature. That being said, if you like that sort of thing, they are very responsive and worked more easily than Wacom’s and the Microsoft pens I’ve used. The pen feels nice to hold. I like it better than the Wacom pens in terms of weight, feel, and balance.The buttons on either side are ok. I don’t really use them. Again – I still have my ClipStudio Tabmate that I worship. If I were trying to use these buttons with how I have my monitor on the Ergotron arm, it would be very uncomfortable. Even if it were on my desk, the buttons would be awful to use. But that’s because I’m used to relaxing with that Tabmate. LOL Maybe that’s just the norm for drawing monitors, but I don’t like it!However, because the XP-PEN Artist24 does not have touch capabilities, I do have to use the left wheel to zoom in and out. Sometimes I zoom in too much but I think this is a Clip Studio EX problem and not the fault of the XP-PEN Artist24.I did not realize that the XP-PEN Artist24 did not have touch capabilities. I rather like being able to move my canvas around with my fingers despite always having issues with the touch zoom randomly going off and making me angry. That being said, this monitor is so large that I can work well on my 11×17″ prints without much movement. I maybe zoom in and out for a total of one hour a day and that’s only when I’m working on touching up the finished art. Though I was originally upset about this and it almost made me send the monitor back, I’m glad I gave it a shot. This has been a blessing in disguise. If you’re addicted to your touch zoom and touch features, in general, you’ll be irritated that this doesn’t have that. However, give it a shot – especially if you are used to working on smaller monitors.Mounting it to the Ergotron arm was easy. The screws were a normal size, removed effortlessly, and the Ergotron fit perfectly against it. Have had zero issues. The Ergotron plus this monitor are gamechangers! However, it is important to purchase the Ergotron arms that can support over 25 pounds. Don’t try to push it just because the product weighs just under 25 pounds. Remember – you’ll be pushing against it with your arm or resting your arm on it, adding to the weight. Err on the side of safety. You don’t want to drop a bunch of money on an expensive drawing monitor only to have the arm fail because of the weight or the quality of the product.Driver installation. I hate installing drivers. I hate it. I hate updating them. I hate dealing with adding monitors and installations. I just want plug-and-play. Every minute I spend doing stuff with drivers and having to troubleshoot my programs and equipment is time that I’m not making money to pay my bills. The XP-PEN Artist24 is plug-and-play after you install the software. I have had zero issues with it after doing that. None. This is huge for me because I frequently had to fight with my Wacom tablets to get the drivers installed and working or I had to reinstall everything. I have had not a single issue like that with the XP-PEN Artist24. Very happy. No time wasted.ClipStudio compatibility. If your PC is compatible with ClipStudio, the XP-PEN Artist24 will work beautifully. You’ll get smooth vector lines too. The tilt functionality is a Godsend after working on the Surface Pros that don’t have it. I can be far more expressive with my brush tools and I’m now producing significantly higher quality digital paints as a result. I love it. I’ve even given Paint Tool Sai a spin and I loved that too. I’m very impressed. The responsiveness in my art programs and the responsiveness with the brushes makes me super happy. For the first time in several years, I feel like my drawing monitor/tablet can keep up with me.Pen point/circle and actual line on screen. Some people complain about the Surface Pros and how the dot that appears on the screen to indicate the pen’s location is slightly off and can cause some accuracy issues. I can attest to this. I’ve had this issue for years on both the Pro 6 and Pro 7 tablets. I had this issue regardless of the program I was using or if I was just browsing the internet and using my pen for clicking. It’s something I had to “get used to”. The XP-PEN Artist24 does not do this. When you place your pen, it’s where you think it is placed. And it keeps up! No more lagging lines, no more delayed inputs. Just make sure your PC has enough RAM to support your programs. I have 64 GB RAM, and Intel Core 7 processor, and… for the moment… no video card because of the market. That’s an issue but it is not preventing me from creating stellar art with the XP-PEN Artist24.The only issue I’ve had with the XP-PEN Artist24 is that I cannot seem to extend my monitors after I built my new PC. When I try to, I have issues with the pen recognition. I’m trying to work through this and I think it could be because I don’t have a video card right now. So I have, basically, a single monitor but two screens and that’s frustrating. What I need are 3 monitors with one being the XP-PEN Artist24. But I need to wait for the video card market to improve. After I get one, I’ll update this review.The cords. Cord management is great. The cords that came with the monitor were a bit short for my use so I have cable extenders and purchased longer cords. If you’re using an arm or your PC is farther away from the monitor, I’d recommend getting some longer cables.So far, I’m a very happy customer and am so glad that I went with the XP-PEN Artist24. It was a huge gamble for me during a time that I did not have a lot of money to invest because of COVID and how it has ruined my business. The XP-PEN Artist24 is worth every cent and should definitely be tried before considering purchasing anything more expensive – even if you are loyal to your brands like I can tend to be. I’m glad that I stopped making excuses for Wacom products and tried a competing brand. Very glad.

    I love this tablet, I have been wanting a tablet with a screen without parallax for years but I could never afford any because they always had a big mark up, even for smaller tablets. I love the colors on the screen as well as the buttons on the side. The buttons are great because for each program you use you can change what the buttons do, right now I have it set up for photoshop, animate, and Firefox, but I could add more programs if I needed to! The screen is great even when I am not using it for drawing or animating I use it as a second monitor.For set up I would like to stress how important it is to uninstall any old tablet drivers you have, most tablet drivers aren’t compatible with each other so if you install a second tablet driver onto your computer it might cause unwanted issues and frustration. The instructions in the box are clear and give lots of different options on how to set up the tablet depending on what you want from it and what type of computer/laptop you are plugging it into.The only things about the tablet I want to mention that I see as a con are easily fixed for cheap, so I don’t want to lower my rating. First off, the cable, the part of the cable that connects to the tablet sticks out straight and I find that it bumps into everything making me worried it might break. The fix is a 90 degree angle adapter for the cable, the one I bought makes it so the cable faces to the back of the tablet parallel to the side. The second is the stand, it does not have multiple angles, so I would recommend investing in a better stand that allows a wider range of angles.

    I’m a seasoned designer and have been working on expanding my skill set in illustration and pattern design. My search for a drawing tablet has been a little bumpy. I started with the iPad Pro, and dropped a big chunk of change on it feeling confident I would love it. I wanted to use it with AstroPad so I could draw in Adobe Illustrator via my laptop, like a regular drawing tablet. Unfortunately, I hated the experience – the Astropad connection wasn’t smooth enough for me and most importantly, the feeling of the Apple Pencil against the iPad glass made my skin crawl. I thought I would get used to it, but I never did, and my iPad ended up collecting dust.So I started looking into dedicated graphics tablets. I initially bought one from a different brand. It was a model that didn’t have a display screen. I really liked the way that one felt; worlds better than the iPad. But the drivers for that one were super buggy and unreliable. So I sent that one back too.Finally, I decided to take a chance on the XP-Pen Artist 13.3 Pro and I am SO glad I did! The instructions for installing and setting up the drivers & controls were on the website and super clear (I’m on a Mac running Mojave). I was able to easily map all the buttons to the controls I wanted in Illustrator, and I was happily drawing no more than 40 minutes after opening the box.I’ve been using this tablet for a few days now and it’s been smooth sailing. The display is big and beautiful and there’s no lag. The screen feels great to draw on. Not exactly “like paper” as some have said, but it definitely feels nice. Nice glide but with just enough resistance to feel like an authentic drawing experience.I am very happy with this purchase.PROS:• Display is big and beautiful• Zero lag• Pen feels great on the screen• Easy to set up• Comes with lots of accessoriesCons:• The 3-in-1 cable works great but feels bulky, especially if you are using the tablet anywhere other than a desk. But that’s just what wires are like, I suppose. For me, the tradeoff is worth it b/c wires mean there’s never any lag or connectivity issues.• It was a pain to find a case for this. I wish XP-Pen made one for this size tablet. I ended up purchasing this one and it’s worked out well: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07JC8MZH1/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    The media could not be loaded.  I received this pen display for my birthday last month upgrading from a New Huion 1060 Plus and wanted to use it a bit before giving a review, but I can say for sure that this is a wonderful tablet. It’s great to travel with because of it’s size and the 3-in-1 cable that it comes with as I have limited desk space and have to put it away after I’m done using it. There is little to no parallax and the screen is perfect for my desk. It is not hot to the touch and thankfully the matte screen protector was applied correctly. I would still suggest using the glove while drawing as your hand will sometimes stick a bit if resting on the screen. There are some issues with the drivers disconnecting and pen pressure. I had to turn the pressure sensitivity to max for it to register light strokes, but the hardware itself has no issues. If you are used to a bigger workspace or have more room it might be better to go for a larger tablet, but overall I’m very happy with this pen display!

    First off, I need to place an emphasis on setting realistic expectations. This is a panel with a digitizer that has accompanying software integration on Mac and Windows operating systems for only about double what a standard monitor would cost. That is a VALUE. It’s not meant to be a professional option, it is a value option for beginners.This being said, it is a great attempt to provide a value option in the larger drawing display tablet space. Although, it has its shortcomings and outright failures. Let’s explore…As far as shortcomings, there is one that is immediately obvious. This isn’t a $500 panel… which makes sense. Otherwise it would cost more. It is a $100-200 panel at best that is 1920×1080 @ 22” in diagonal dimension.This means it’s pixels per inch are less than one third of your smart phone screen… that is a scalding difference for anyone.For this reason, it’s important to look at this as a secondary display. It works best when paired with a 2K/4K monitor like I’ve done with my setup (shown in picture).If you need a primary display to focus on and draw with… consider the XP Pen 24 with a 2560×1440 resolution and closer to 50% of the resolution of a Apple retina quality Phone or tablet. This will be much more easy on the eyes and similar to what you will see in your end product on your devices.The last fatal flaw I must admit is the difficult setup. It is not Apple intuitive… and I’d normally say that this is ok for the price… but it’s literally a tablet only beginners would consider. And for this reason, this is the biggest failure of this product.Please XP-Pen, recognize you have good hardware and pricing and start focusing more on software design.Regardless, once you get it set up… you just use whatever program you want. Photoshop, Blender, Microsoft Paint! Whatever floats your boat and sails your ship. Hopefully this review is helpful, thank you for reading.

    I do love this. I switched from a Kamvas 12 to this, and while there are things I like better about Kamvas (primarily the laminated screen) there is no denying this is high quality.It’s sturdy, the extra pen was nice. I have used this every single day since I received it (it’s been a few months

  7. Eliz_Gar

    Disclaimer: I’m a newbie artist who is getting into digital art because I really liked drawing on my Pixelbook but wanted something better, both with hardware as well as software. I really liked being able to rotate and move the canvas with my fingers while drawing on the Pixelbook. This made digital art very enjoyable and functional. I was concerned I would miss this on a cheaper pen display without touch. I considered the iPad Pro but feared the price and that iOS would ultimately frustrate and limit me. The Wacom Cintiq 16 is also more expensive and did not have any buttons at all, so I worried how that would affect my workflow. Ultimately I decided on the Pro 15.6 because of the price and functionality. On the Pixelbook I used the Sketchbook Pro Android app and with the Pro 15.6 I now use Clip Studio Pro (“CSP”) on Windows and don’t think I’ll be going back to Sketchbook.Dial and ButtonsI don’t really miss the lack of touch on this display because of the dial and buttons. I think I may actually prefer the dial and buttons to touch because there’s no inadvertent touches. I’ve programmed the dial to both rotate and zoom in/out the canvas in both Sketchbook and CSP. One button switches between both functions (thanks to another reviewer for the pro tip!). Another button allows me to move the canvas with the pen while I hold it down (space bar). Even though reviewers say the Cintiq 16 has better line quality, I don’t want to give up the dial and buttons now, even if the price was the same. Being able to easily rotate the display allows me to physically draw better lines.Line qualityI can’t really speak to how it compares to the Cintiq 16, but the Pro 15.6 is way better than the Pixelbook. With the Pixelbook, I had to turn on software assist to make an even line without any jitter. With this, I rarely do. Could it be better? Probably. But for my purposes I’m pretty happy. And I can still turn on software features if needed. I do find that if I zoom out to close the actual size of the canvas, I can make a good, smooth line without much software assistance. The drawing surface with the pre-applied screen protector is better than the Pixelbook’s glass. It does not feel like paper so probably not as good as the Cintiq 16.DisplayThe 15.6 size is really a nice upgrade to the Pixelbook size wise (which is the same as the biggest iPad Pro). After some calibration, I was able to get the display to match my TV color pretty closely (I have the display hooked up to a PC that is also connected to my Sony TV). I also really like the brightness control buttons. But again, I’m no pro.DriversYes, the drivers are clunky and could be more refined, but they are functional. The driver failed to open my display drivers to calibrate the monitor’s colors and position, but that didn’t stop me from opening it myself (I have AMD Radeon display drivers) and calibrating the monitor’s colors. The driver also failed to calibrate the pen when it extended the display so I had to set it to duplicate my TV to calibrate the pen. Otherwise, I was able to program the dial and buttons for each application, although this could be more intuitive. I haven’t had the need to change the pressure curves or anything else in the driver.***Update 5/13/2019: With the latest drivers on 5/13/2019, I can now calibrate the XP-Pen’s display and rotation while the monitor is duplicating my TV. This makes it much easier as I no longer have to rely on a GPU driver or change to extend mode to calibrate the drawing monitor. I’ve found if I turn down all three colors, RGB, to 35 then the colors aren’t as blown out and match better my TV.***Update 3/30/2019: I’ve now added a discrete GPU, an Nvidia RTX 1660 TI, and discovered I could not calibrate the XP-Pen’s color display separately from the Sony TV with the Nvidia control panel, so I used XP Pen’s app while setting the displays to extend mode. This works fine, even after I switched the displays back to duplicating mode. After viewing some calibration images, I’ve also noticed that the XP-Pen’s colors are more blown out than the Sony TV at the bright end of the spectrum. This is a little disappointing but for what I need the pen display for it’s not a huge issue to me. But be aware that color may be washed out on the brighter side and might not be as good as what you are used to.***Update 2/19/2019: after a quick response from XP-Pen, they explained to me that the XP-Pen driver cannot configure the display when it is duplicating my TV and only works when extending the TV display. However, since I can configure the color of the XP-Pen with the Radeon app for my GPU, this isn’t an issue for me.StandThe stand doesn’t raise it high enough for me. Otherwise it works. At first I propped it higher with a heavy box under it, but that was clunky. Then I purchased the Parblo PR 100 stand and with this I have the display at about a 60 degree angle that works really well. Considering the Cintiq 16 doesn’t come with a proper stand either I’m not considering this a big minus.In considering the alternatives currently on the market, I’m keeping the 15.6 Pro and am giving it a 5 star rating despite some issues because of the price. I see that XP-Pen has already updated the drivers once already so I hope that they will improve with time. Otherwise I’m pretty happy to continue to draw on it and to recommend it to other hobbyists who can put up with its issues. I’m really pulling for them to fill this niche in the market. Hope this was helpful!

    I’m a 10 year animation veteran, and I’ve worked for multiple animation studios. Cintiq displays are standard issue. However, working at home on freelance, I’ve never had the luxury of spending thousands of dollars on a cintiq and have always resorted to these non Wacom brands for my own personal work.It wouldn’t be fair to compare this with Wacom’s massive 32 inch behemoth, but with regards to their 24 inch, this is pound for pound just as good as every monitor I’ve used in a studio environment, if not better.The new pen drivers work swimmingly. The screen feels much nicer than their older slick glass models. The colors are beautiful. I don’t use the hotkeys and I probably never will, but if those are your thing, there’s plenty to work with. Granted, there’s no eraser, but you should be using hotkeys anyway. Learn to press E and save 1600 dollars.If anything happens in the long run I’ll try to update this. But I legitimately can’t believe I spent so little in comparison to a Wacom brand tablet and got something better than any tablet I’ve ever worked on professionally. Glowing recommendation.
