Wacom tablets are being replaced with XP Pen Artist Display 22E
Why my next tablet will be an XP-PEN instead of a Wacom
I’ve been using Wacom tablets since my first tablet, which is the Bamboo Create before moving to Wacom Intuos Pro Medium. Unfortunately, Wacom only has the Cintiq Pro 13 inch (1,000 USD or 110,700 JPY) on their website and the 22HD is only available at Amazon (1,700 USD or 188,000 JPY). I’ve been wanting the Cintiq for a few years, but there’s a better option: an XP-PEN Artist Display 22E Pro, which it has more features than the Wacom Cintiq.
The XP-PEN Artist Display 22E Pro is 500 USD (55,300 JPY) cheaper than the Wacom Cintiq at Amazon. I always wanted Japanese products instead of the American products (save for iMac, iPhone, and iPad). Despite the lack of eraser side of the pen and having no tilt or rotation sensitivity, this pen tablet packs a punch. It comes with a glove that prevents any smudges while drawing, and it works with many art programs (Photoshop, Illustrator, Clip Studio Paint…). The screen tablet has:
- 16 customizable buttons
- 1920×1080 pixels
- Two rechargeable digital stylus pens (compared to a single stylus pen on Wacom tablets)
- Two charging cables
- Black drawing glove
- Plus many more features
The tablet makes any artist or graphic designer work faster than the Wacom Intuos Pro tablets (all of which does not have a screen), and it makes a creative professional work on bigger projects when working with webcomics or characters for the webcomics.
