Sadly, faulty product . wanted to give huion a try since ive been using wacom for so many years and huion is cheaper. I factory reset my com and tried huion with the huion driver and there were so many issues. it would work for a while then disconnect. It happened so frequently that it really disrupted my focus and workflow. Sometimes it would be connected but not sense my pen. Other times it would disconnect. I am returning it and going back to wacom.
I bought this for my son who is a budding artist. This review is just for my experience in setup as I'm certainly no artist so cannot comment on those aspects. First, it wasn't very clear if there was a screen protector already attached or not. You'll peel off protective film that looks like protective film. Under that the screen protector is already attached but it is so clear it doesn't look like there is one. To confirm just try sliding your fingernail under it at one of the corners and sure enough it is there.
Plugging in the cables took a minute to understand. The three in one adaptor plugs into the top port (with the logo on the left hand side). The orange USB is power and there is a power extension cable (also orange) to give you more length to get to an outlet. If you have appropriate power the screen on the tablet will show your desktop, if you've plugged into your laptop and the screen doesn't turn on then there isn't enough power and you should run to an electrical outlet.
You also plug in the USB as well as HDMI to your Laptop/Computer. If you just have one monitor you'll see the desktop on the tablet. If you have multiple monitors you need to open the Huion software and click "Working Area." From there you can choose your tablet (acts like a third monitor) and click that as it is the one you'll be drawing on. This caused confusion because before I did that we would try to draw on the tablet but the pen would end up on our primary (Laptop) monitor. When you click the "Working Area" in the Huion software you can select your tablet as the "working area" and it will work.
Finally, I was a little unsure as to the software that would work with this tablet. As far as I can tell the tablet just works as a third monitor so we just dragged the software we wanted to use (MS Paint, Corel Draw) over from the primary monitor to the tablet monitor and everything works fine. I imagine there could be some finer technical aspects I don't yet understand but if the tablet just works as a third monitor then I don't see where there could be an issue with some software not "working" with this tablet. Any clarification from the company on software that might "not work" for some reason would be great.
The functions were a little clunky at first because I had no idea what I was doing..I just know that I needed a bigger display than my iPad to do some of my pieces. After awhile and with much practice the functionality to the display works wonderfully. Tho my only other grievance is to more concisely label the setting buttons bc the manual doesn’t explain it in a way that’s understandable.
I've had this tablet for more than half a year now. It's been great to draw on, and even watch things on, since it's a display. Though the screen always looked weirdly foggy, no matter what I cleaned it with, it always had some strange haze, that isn't detrimental at all using the screen, but a bit strange for me to see, since I've usually used crystal clear displays before, like IPads and such. It's a strange issue, but everything else seems perfect, with it's ease of use and responsive screen!
HUION KAMVAS 13 Graphics Drawing Tablet one of the best Drawing tablet for beginners, easy setup to your phone or pc. The build quality is very good screen is full laminated so your stylist is right on the screen anti-glare film. Comes with lots of extras. I would recommend this product.
The tablet felt really great & worked as an alternate monitor/mouse to use upon first connecting, but unfortunately that's just about it for the good things. Not only did the clear screen filter meant to peel off easily leave a messy spread of glue I had to clean up, but the drivers I installed never detected the tablet. I searched both HUION's website & the rest of the internet, but was never detected by the driver despite my computer recognizing it. Which is a shame considering it was feeling very promising up until it wasn’t connected to the driver [ergo the pressure sensitivity didn’t work, the buttons couldn’t be mapped, etc]. Will update if I can fix.
UPDATE: Tried connecting it again via dual monitor setup & it was finally detected :] Tablet works great & is above & beyond. The driver covers everything nicely
