My Intuos 5 tablet stopped working recently and I had a Huion H610 sitting on the shelf as a backup. When I purchased the Huion I couldn't even use it yet because they didn't support Windows 8, luckily at the demise of my Wacom I noticed the Win8 drivers were ready. I've been testing it out this past week and I must say it's definitely a solid choice for those on a budget and perfect to have as a backup tablet. (The last thing you want is to be down for a few days/weeks while you wait on your replacement)
1. Same pressure levels as a wacom
2. When drawing it has a nice textured feel like you're drawing on paper
3. Configurable express keys
4. Touch and non touch version. I personally dislike the touch tablets, it doesn't mesh with my painting style. Way too often when I'd go over a completed piece I'd find little dabs of paint from my hand/finger from accidentally touching the tablet.
5. The ability to turn the pen off. I personally find this a neat feature to click the pen and lay it on your tablet without it interfering with your normal mouse control.
6. Pen doesn't feel cheap like most battery pens.
7. Price: $50
8. I seem to be getting better sensitivity in certain programs like ArtRage, Paint Tool Sai and Painter
1. I've noticed when booting to windows the first time sometimes the express keys don't work. I had this happen with the intuos as well and a reboot would fix this but with the Huion you just unplug the tablet and plug it back in to correct it.
2. Battery pen NOTE: The Pro version pen doesn't require a battery.
3. No Eraser - Some might agree that this is a con but I never used the eraser on the Wacom pens so I don't miss it.
A couple of samples I've done with the Huion:
I'm making it a habit to find artists with little exposure on their DA Page who definitely deserve it.
