4 out of 5 eggs Decent alternative to Wacom tablets 11/30/2013

This review is from: Huion USB Graphic Tablet with Digital Rechargeable Pen - K58

Pros:

The price is great for what you get out of it. The rechargeable pen is convenient, since I don't have to deal with replacing its battery in the middle of a drawing session. The 8x5-inch drawing area is ideal for both my drawing motions and my available desk space. The 4.9-feet USB cable length is convenient for those whose computers are located below the desk.

Cons:

There is a bright green light on the front bezel of the tablet that indicates when the pen is actively engaged with the drawing surface. This constantly blinks during my drawing sessions, and is very distracting off the corner of my eye. I've learned to ignore it (even in the dim light of my computer area), but a dim red light on the side (or even the back) of the bezel would be less annoying.

Also, the pen that came with my unit has a frustrating issue: the internal mechanism of the pen tip will sometimes stick, and won't immediately release when I lift the pen off the drawing surface. I end up with squiggly lines all over my drawing, because the pen is still registering a pressure even though I've stopped pressing down on it. It takes a half-second before I feel an internal click that indicates the tip has finally disengaged.

This issue doesn't happen all the time. In fact, at first I thought it was just dirty. However, after replacing the pen nib three times and wiping the nibs clean, the issue still occurs. Since I really needed this tablet to complete a project at the time, and couldn't afford to lose days/weeks sending it back and waiting for a replacement, I made do with the pen issue instead.

Other Thoughts:

I'm assuming my pen issue is just bad luck that I got a defect. However, between the distracting blinky light and the questionable quality control that sent me a bad pen, I can't give this item 5-stars. It's a good tablet, though, and it replaces a 13-year old first-gen Wacom Intuos that really needed to be replaced.
