  1. Scott Pearce

    Great quality and cost-effective.I don’t have much frame of reference when it comes to stylus input displays for drawing. I haven’t used any Wacom devices in years and using a finger or touchscreen stylus to draw on a smartphone or tablet is the most recent experience I’ve had with digital drawing in the last 10 years or more.I went into this purchase with trepidation because I am so unknowledgeable on these kinds of products. My perception is that Wacom owns the market–at least the professional market–with best in class design and quality. And Wacom devices sport a price tag that would support that assumption. When you compare what Wacom is selling and how much they are selling it for and then compare that to any device in the XP-Pen product lineup you’ll likely look at the cheaper devices and assume that they are poorly designed and of poor quality.The XP-Pen Artist15.6 delivers a well-designed product at a level of quality far higher than suggested by the price. This is no flimsy knockoff of a better product. I can’t honestly believe that the Wacom experience is so significantly better than that of the XP-Pen Artist15.6 that it would be worth the extra hundreds of dollars it would take to buy a comparable Wacom product. And I say that to any hobbyist or professional.I use my Artist15.6 with Krait, a free and open-source digital illustration and painting application, and I am absolutely floored by the amount of control available. The pressure-sensitive input is fantastic, especially to my untrained hand and eye. I am always in control of the quality of the mark I lay down. I can draw and write as naturally as I do with a real pencil and paper.Best yet, the stylus is completely passive and doesn’t require any batteries, wired connection, or charging. The only consumables are the small nibs that touch the surface of the screen. These wear out a bit faster than even I expected but a package of 100 is cheap enough and shipped directly from the vendor via Amazon.The LCD screen itself is decent. This may be where Wacom devices pull ahead–with higher-quality panels and backlighting–but I haven’t experienced any issues with color reproduction or anything like that. The colors I’m using are the colors I see when I view the finished piece on a different screen. The screen contrast and brightness are not flawless but they are, again, close enough that I can’t help but feel that bumping up to a Wacom is a waste of money.The Artist15.6 doesn’t come with any kind of stand so you’ll have to order one separately if you don’t already have solution on-hand. The 3-in-1 cable is pretty great because it effectively keeps the cable clutter to a minimum and hopefully, XP-Pen will make a simple, single, USB-C cable solution.The driver and companion software must be downloaded from the XP-Pen website. There is an install DVD but my PC doesn’t have an optical disk but at a certain point I think it’s smarter to just go straight to the Internet for drivers and stuff since the DVD could have been written several updates prior to the purchase. The install process is simple enough and the configuration software is exactly as barebones as it ought to be. You have control over the multi-function button on the barrel of the pen, the 6 buttons on the bezel of the display, as well as control over color temperature, Windows Ink support, display rotation, and pressure curve.I am very happy with my purchase and I will most definitely look to XP-Pen when it’s time for me to upgrade my device.

    I’ve been wanting to get into digital art for awhile, but was unsure which tablet to get. I did ALOT of research before selecting this one but I have not been disappointed. It is a nice big screen with great screen quality! It’s super easy to use for a beginner like me and it came with instructions on how to download the driver and such for different computer types. The side buttons are super handy and you don’t have to charge the pen, which is great if you’re forgetful like me. Overall, I couldn’t be happier with this product! It doesn’t have a stand like some, but that fits my needs just fine.

    I received my tablet just last week and when it works, it works fantastically. Definitely more than worth the price. However, it doesn’t work properly all the time. At least half of my time trying to use it leads to strange interference and artifacts on the screen. I’ve not been able to find a solution to my issue and haven’t heard anything back from tech support. Hopefully I’ll be able to get it sorted out and give this a better rating, but so far, my experience doesn’t deserve anything more than 3 stars.UPDATE Mar. 19 2018After getting in touch with tech support, who had returned my original email nearly immediately (which I didn’t see when GMAIL deleted it). When I finally found the reply and got to talk to them we discovered that the issue I had was with port on the tablet itself. They quickly got me in touch with customer service to get me started on getting a new one shipped out.When I returned the defective unit, I had to pay $45 shipping, but it was refunded to me. I gave them the shipping info on Friday and my new unit arrived on Monday. Thus far it is working perfectly and I have nothing but good things to say about both the product and the service by XP-PEN. Will update in the future for extended use feelings.

    I’m a DC Comics artist. You can check out my stuff at jasonbadower.com.All of that is drawn with a Cintiq 21UX but the attached picture is drawn with the XP-Pen.I would argue that the XP-PEN has as good, if not better sensitivity and feel than my old 21UX.Please note, I draw everything in Photoshop.PROSIf you’re doing black and white line work, this is your baby. No questions.Plug and play. Install the drivers and you’re off the races. I also use Lazy Nezumi Pro to help smooth my lines.For the price, the quality is incredible.CONSOnly issue: It doesn’t have a print-quality color/tone output. I checked everything I drew on my Cintiq before sending it to my editor. I did have to make minor adjustments. But honestly, it was about 90% right. If you absolutely need accurate colors/tone, spend the extra $100 and grab the next version up.A great youtube video by CROWNE PRINCE “XP-Pen Artist 15.6 Pro Tablet Review” covers all the different XP-Pen models really well.But this is the bottom of the pickings, and I love it.ps. Do not buy the official stand. It has one height setting.

    Sorry a head of time for the long review! I just did a jam session of three paintings for gift in a week, so I definitely took this tablet monitor out for a spin. I preordered this tablet and it came much more quickly than estimated, which was such an awesome surprise! It works incredibly well so far. I do notice some minor drawbacks, but I think it could be an easy solution to contact xp-pen for help. I also ordered this device knowing that I may have some issues pop up. For the most part, I have some easy solutions, and none of the things I’ve noticed create a negative for me. I do think this product is worth a high rating, as I’ve gotten a lot for my price, which feels so good after doing seven months of reasearch.To preface this note, I did uninstall all of my previous Wacom drivers, and set all of my program shortcuts across all programs to be the same shortcuts, but I did notice one or two program conflicts. One being that when I had Paint Tool Sai open, and I had Clip Studio open, Clip would stop working properly. None of my shortcuts worked. An easy solution until I could contact xp-pen after my holidays were over was to just keep only of the programs running. Super simple! I will be contacting Xp-Pen in the following days. Other than that, I can’t think of any other issues I had. I only use Clip studio, Sai, and CS6, so if there are any other conflicts with programs such as maya, zbrush, etc. I don’t have experience with that.Now for the build of the monitor, I’m super impressed. The pen and the buttons feel so nice. I had a Wacom intuos 4 drawing pad, and this tablet feels sooo much better. The screen is super nice, and I’m pretty happy with the colors! My computer screen calibration is off, as the monitor is 10-15 years old, so that does affect my opinion on the colour calibration out of the box. But I did some colour printing and colors are pretty accurate from screen to paper imo. If anything I feel like my tweaking of the calibration may have had a negative impact on the calibration.I do have to press quite hard for the pen tip to register a double click or press multiple times to open a program or a file. However, this maybe my computer, as I had a bit of that same issue with my previous Wacom Intuos 4. It does seem more exaggerated with this tablet monitor. I do have the room to keep a mouse connected and that is an easy solution for me. The click issue doesn’t bother my workflow as badly as I would think. My cursor does jump sometimes when I click the first button on the pen to select a colour, which might get frustrating for some people. This isn’t a negative for me.I do want to mention that the pen nibs seem a bit softer a plastic than my previous tablets, as I’ve severely burned through two nibs in a week. However, as I’m a light sketcher, I’ve been having to press a bit harder, and I think I just had to find a balance, and a better process to my painting style. I really appreciate the matte screen protector during this time. Bless you Xp-Pen.To be honest, I have heard horror stories buying nonWacom tablets. However, I’ve had two of their drawings pads and have had nightmares with both. The intuos 4 in particular had a conflict with my last computer, and would uninstall itself every couple of days… for two years… until a friend fixed the issue by accident… My point is that even though people say Wacom are reliable, that is not always the case from my experience, and you definitely shouldn’t write out other companies, especially this tablet monitor. It’s like a combination of the artist display 13.3 and 16, with some super nice, and even better features! I don’t find that I’m missing the touch wheel from my last tablet, and I actually prefer using the express keys! If I find anything else about the tablet as I use it, I’ll update my review. I’ll also post some painings and photos later. Happy Holidays!

    I am a beginner in artwork, and I never used a graphic tablet before. I would now know how to qualify this tablet against others. I can testify, though, about how I used it, and in this regard, it is a great product.The tablet was not quite easy to configure in the beginning. For example, the stylus was no longer working after a while in an application, and the solution to that is to disable Windows Ink. Once these quirks are resolved, it works reliably.I use this tablet as a third monitor of my PC and take extensive notes with One Note, converting those into digital notes when I want to keep the notes. The product works quite well on the Microsoft Office products. One can put handwriting in Word as well, but cannot convert it into digital notes, not through the table’s fault.I learned to love this product. I bought a Corel Painter 2019, and it works well with it too. I am still learning the painter software, but the tablet seems to work well with it.

    The media could not be loaded.  I received the tablet like two weeks before the projected date of arrival so that was great. I have an imac mid 2011 with high sierra osx and the tablet works good there. Colors were great out of the box and the paper like texture in the matte display is awesome. Also is light and so portable. It will require some adjusting to the pen…once you done…the paralax is imperceptible…almost none…but even the surface pro 2017 has it…so this is great. Works good with krita, sketchbook pro and Photoshop cc 2018 with some minor adjustments. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a wacom cintiq alternative with a great price and an even greater tech and service support.

    If you’re a student, hobbyist, amateur artist, or just looking to get your first graphics display tablet, I would definitely recommend considering this product. For the price, this tablet works great and its size and quality is quite nice. I’ve had this tablet for roughly a month and so far I haven’t had any issues. I run Windows 10 and mainly use Paint Tool SAI, Clip Studio Paint, and Photoshop CC. Just make sure that you uninstall any tablet drivers on your PC before setup and that you download the latest drivers from XP-Pen’s website.Setting up the tablet is very easy. Just follow the instructions and you should have no issue. Calibration and color configuration is also pretty simple.Pros:Installation and setup is simpleGood size and quality for priceNice resolutionComes with accessories such as pen charger, extra nibs, artist glove, cloth to clean screen, and extra cablesExpress keysParallax is minimal for a cintiq alternativeGood build qualityNot a pro for the tablet, but XP-Pen has a pretty in-depth FAQ on their website for troubleshooting. Look here for getting the tablet to work with SAI.Cons:Pressure level needed to activate the pen is higher than I’m used toNo pen tilt functionalityWires to connect tablet to PC can be kinda annoyingColors could be better

    UPDATE 4/24: I added two items to the tablet. I removed the stock protector and installed a Photodon screen protector MXH surface and that solved the scratch problems. I also just received the P05 pen/with cylinder case (8 nibs) that I ordered from XP-Pen website. I am happy to report the P05 pen works great with the Artist 15.6 and has a tapered end and grip on it. Thanks to those who gave me a tip on this!—————————–I own a Wacom Cintiq 13HD pen and touch and an XP-Pen 22e and now the XP-Pen Artist 15. I wanted something larger then the Wacom Cintiq 13hd and portable. I decided on the XP-Pen Artist 15.6 because the XP-Pen 22e has worked so well for me for a couple years now as my desktop tablet and have had great response to XP-Pen customer service.The size is perfect, it is slim and very portable. I am able to hook this to my Surface Pro and sit in a chair with comfort. The screen colors suit my needs the configuration with the drivers also is very well done. Pressure sensitivity is much better on the XP-Pen Artist then the Wacom Cintiq 13HD and the matte finish on the screen is just perfect for those of us who love to draw on paper! The nibs do wear down quickly but that is a small downside for me. I hope they will be selling the matte finish screen protectors as I know I will wear this one out at some point.Since this is an upgrade for me from the Wacom 13HD, I can report the XP-Pen Artist 15.6 is indeed a great upgrade for a fraction of the cost of a Wacom . The screen is better the colors are better and the pen pressure is better then the Wacom Cintiq 13hd. I do not even notice that the pen on the Artist 15.6 has no tilt.I have used the Artist 16.6 non-stop for 2 days now with Sketchbook Pro – I am still trying to figure out how to get the erase button to work with this program on Windows 10 (the setting used by XP-Pen brings up another tool) . Also, on my Mac book Pro 2015 I am unable to use it in extended screen mode as the cursor is offset by about 6 inches and I have been unable to figure out how to get the cursor to sync with the pen properly – mirror mode works fine. Other then those two issues, which I consider minor, it has been bug free so far. I will update if I find any other issues.
