Reviews for HUION Inspiroy H640P Graphics Drawing Tablet with Battery-Free Stylus 8192 Pressure Sensitivity 6 Customized Hot Keys, Digital Pen Tablet for Linux, Mac, Windows PC and Android
People say Huion is really similar to Wacom.
A very good tablet
My wife and I gave this drawing tablet for our son (he's 10). He likes to draw and previously, he was using a stylus on his touch enabled Windows 10 laptop to do this. But it was not very precise, so we decided to get him this. I chose this over the Wacom for a few reasons. The size of the drawing area, the light weight of the tablet, the number of quick access keys, a passive pen (no battery) and of course, the price. When he opened it, he was disappointed that when he pressed the pen onto the tablet, this did not translate into a thicker line on the program (he's using Krita by the way, which is free). Upon further reading (yeah, Dad's never read instructions), I realized that I had to download the driver for the pen. Upon downloading, the pressure sensitivity worked. Press hard on the pen in the tablet and the lines get thick or dark. And he's happily drawing away now. The reviews we found on Youtube were spot on and that helped a lot. Highly recommend this tablet.
This tablet is great for beginner artists
This is a modal window. No compatible source was found for this media. This tablet is great for beginner artists. The price is really affordable for someone without a large disposable income and has a lot of the same functionality as much more expensive drawing tablets. The pen pressure is really nice for inking albeit hard to set up but once it hits its stride its very effective. I think its a great deal for the price. when I was first starting out my first tablet from Wacom was about $75 (which I bought with my own money as a youngster) so I think this is a very good price range. it seems very small but its actually a reasonable size.
Cheaper isn't always worse.
Pros: - Battery-less pen - Small form - Programmable shortcut keys (on both tablet AND pen) - Little to no lag - Decent cord length - Pen stand with extra nibs - Crazy high pressure levels at a crazy low price Cons: - Cord could be longer (just personal preference) - Some programs don't work well with the pressure sensitivity Summary: When buying this I wasn't sure what to think. I never drew digitally outside of a few things on my phone back when touch screens were a new and exciting thing. With everyone screaming the blessings of Wacom tablets I looked away at the cheaper ones with that "Oh no one talks about them, they must be inferior and don't work." I learned back when I swapped my Galaxy S3 for the LG G3 that just because it a smaller company with cheaper products, doesn't mean it's worse. Fast forward to now and seeing many reviews comparing this to Wacom's offerings saying that it's close to, if not better, I decided to give it a try. Now my art skills have diminished from years of not drawing but this tablet works well. Using a free trail of Paint Tool Sai and the free program Krita I was able to draw, paint, doodle, and whatever else with the full range of pressure. Gimp however does not work with the pressure sensitivity. The only real complaint was learning the softway and drawing without hitting the buttons on the pen, time will of course make those issues go away. If you new to digital drawing or just on a budget, this is a great purchase.
BETTER THAN WACOM? .............................perhaps.
I ABSOLUTELY HECKN LOVE THIS TABLET, THIS COMPANY! OH MY GOD THE TABLETS ARE AFFORDABLE AND AMAZING. I HAd a Wacom Bamboo Touch for the past 6 years; my first tablet ever. Once I got the h640p I noticed an immediate difference, the pen to the tablet was very smooth. When I drew, the lines were not blurry when I zoomed in the canvas unlike the blurry lines the Wacom produced. The pen has a grip and fits very nicely into my hand. Also, with my other tablet for some odd reason sometimes I felt like I couldn't get the correct angle to draw. Like, the pen and tablet felt awkward, but with this tablet I can draw extremely comfortably. I had no problems setting up the tablet, and it was extremely easy to program it, but it may differ between computers and drawing programs. I included a comparison picture!
The Huion performs amazing and was very easy to set up and there ...
I used a Wacom Bamboo Splash for about 5 years before i decided to get a new tablet. This tablet is slightly smaller, but the surface is smooth and the nib hardly shows any wear even after using it to draw for several hours. With the Splash tablet, the nibs would get run down fairly quickly. The Huion performs amazing and was very easy to set up and there are far more customizing options here than with the Wacom one (which was more expensive and didn't have any extra buttons other than the two on the pen). The cord is also nice and long so I don't have to sit so close to my computer. It's comfortable in my lap or on the desk. I don't recommend small tablets to artists with wrist problems but for anyone else, it's great for beginners or advanced artists. I have had no software problems either. The Huion works well with the SAI program I use to draw and doesn't randomly disconnect from my computer or program like the Wacom one did. Over all this is a great, affordable tablet and I am very happy with this purchase.
My Huion Inspiroy H640P Graphics Drawing Tablet vs my One by Wacom Bamboo Splash
Since purchasing my Huion Inspiroy H640P and One by Wacom Bamboo Splash have been using them to learn how to use a graphics tablet for digital art, and editing while also seeing what direction I want to go for a upgrade in the future. At first glance the H640 tablet feels heavier, and more rigid compared to the One. The drawing surface is smoother on the H640P feeling more like writing paper as compared to the construction paper feel of the One. This does have it's ups and downs though as yes you will wear out less nibs, but it also means that when making quick strokes there's less resistance on the pen nib and you go further than what you intend. Neither Tablet has an eraser on the pen which isn't terrible because most programs you have a hot key to enable/disable the last eraser used, but it is a little hard to get used to habitually when you're so used to just flipping your pencil over and erasing. The H640P's 6 buttons on the tablet I use for my main 3 brushes, eraser, and to size up or size down.The buttons feel fine and compared to the One's lack of buttons anywhere but on the pen this is a plus for a few extra quick shortcuts. Both pens are battery free, light weight, and come with extra nibs. The H640P also comes with a stand for the pen, and to store the nibs the One does not. Both tablets perform very well with Photoshop or Krita, and I try to switch between the two often to see which does better for what I am doing. At the sensitivity level I have them both set at ...

I LOVE IT
This thing is awesome! I'm using it on a MacBook Pro, and let me first say this: If you type in the website to download the driver, it will say that there's no website available. If you simply just google s search it, it will pop up. Download was instantaneous - seriously, like a minute. Button and pen button shortcuts are so easy to create. I'm going to say this, though. This is my first graphic tablet. I have used my uncle's wacom which is more than $300 more but does the same thing. I'm new to graphic design and the illustrator world, but I got the hang of this tablet so fast. This is only the first full day I've had the thing, and I know I've seen people say that it stopped working after the first week. I will have to see for myself and come back to update. I drew my first ever illustrator piece with this tablet. My little buddy peppy.
The quality of product at this price level is incredible
I was very skeptical of the quality of this tablet. It's been years since I last used a pen tablet and I was tempted to just buy a Wacom device. At the price I figured I could try this device and could always "upgrade" to a wacom later without much cost, but so far I don't think that will ever be necessary. From the minute I opened the package and saw the box, everything about this product screams "quality". High quality box, extra accessories including a pen stand and two (two!) USB adapters for both micro usb and usb-c. Inside the pen stand are even extra tips for the pen in case one wears out or you lose one. I had a few minor issues when connecting the device to my machine, but after installing the latest software from Huion's website they all went away. The software is very high quality and allows remapping the hardware buttons to different keystrokes. I've been using the tablet with Krita, and so far everything has been great.
Better for Beginners Than a $70 Wacom
My 7 year old Wacom Intuos broke a few days ago and I ordered this product as a cheaper replacement since I didn't use my old Wacom as much but still needed a travel digital tablet. If you're a beginner digital artist, don't have that big of a budget, just wanna test the waters, or are ordering this as a gift I'd say this product is the perfect one. The setup is easy and quick, the pen pressure and drawing area are adequate for the product and unlike the Wacom Intuos, this product features six codeable express key options that allow for more customization than a Wacom. I did have some issues with the pen pressure at first, but a quick reinstall of the driver fixed that issue right away. Overall great product would highly recommend to anyone wanting to have Wacom similar quality without paying Wacom prices.
