I've been using wacom tablets for about 8 years now, and having dealt with lots of incompatibility issues, driver woes, and a plethora of things on the list, I figured I'd try out a huion!
Every person's experience differs, so I can't say my experience will be guaranteed for you, but I've had nothing but joy from this little thing. It's sleek and compact, easy to use, and essentially a one and done setup. You just plug it in, install a driver, and off you go.
Initially I bought this to escape software and stability issues my intuos had been giving me, but now that I have it, I'm so pleased. The pen is very comfortable to hold and the size of the tablet is really nice. Not to mention the steal of a price this is for.
If you're a beginner, or even just looking for a good, trustworthy tablet, but for a fraction of a wacom's cost, I do suggest this tablet. It does everything any other tablet does, just as well. Hell, it does it a little better in my opinion.
