Drawn together

 

I don't often get to review items that have creative purposes, but I relish the opportunity when it comes along.

For graphic artists and digital media peeps, the tablet is often a more commonplace item than a mouse on the desktop.

 

While professional tablets and pens can often set you back a few hundred spondoolicks, this enters the arena with a budget price tag so that budding artists and students can get in some practice with their digital drawing.

 

First up, some specs:

 

Model Numbers - XP8060B/WT

 

PC Interface - USB

 

Dimensions - 305 mm (L) x 287.3 mm (W) x 24mm (H)

 

Active Area - 8.0" x 6.0"

 

Weight - 540g N.W

 

Resolution - 2000LPI ~ 4000LPI (MAX)

 

Pressure Sensitivity - 1024 Levels

 

Report Rate - At least 100 points/sec

 

Technology Used - Electromagnetic

 

Pen - Cordless with a pen tip and two barrel buttons

 

Tablet Supply Voltage - DC 5V ( +-5%)

Software:

 

1. PhotoCreator (Image editing software)

 

2. PIXIA (CG comic drawing software)

From the specs page we can see that this pad has more than enough resolution for getting stuck in and a few handy graphics packages to help you along, too.
