Upgrading my gear

It’s time for an upgrade to my failing art tablet. I’ve been thinking on moving to a screen ‘tablet’ for a while but the price of the cintiq is a bit overwhelming, so I’ve been researching alternates. After the epic failure of the Monoprice 10 x 6.25 Graphic Drawing Tablet (It doesn’t work properly without massive effort and the dual screen support is non existent on windows 10 … guess who uses win10 and dual monitors) I decided to expand my search. If you have a single monitor or a laptop you use to draw with, the monoprice was actually very nice feeling for what I could use it. But, my god, the drivers are a pain in the arse. Especially if you’ve ever used a wacom product on the computer you’re installing the monoprice on. You more or less will need to format your system to clear out all wacom drivers to get it to work.

The Ugee 1910B Drawing Monitor 19 Inch looks like it might be a winner in my next attempt to replace this crappy old intuos. Even if it doesn’t work with dual monitors, I can move it to my laptop and work from there. It being a monitor means I won’t have to suffer with the small screen of the laptop itself as much as I would have had to with the monoprice. Wish me luck in not having another chinese knockoff failure.
