j'ai la même tablette. d'ailleurs tout ce qui a été écrit dans cet avis reste assez fidèle à ce que
j'ai pu testé et pratiqué avec cet outil. totalement d'accord avec la désinstallation des autres drivers de tablette. <:

As a more recent question how long did it last you? Or maybe even better is it still working??

ALSO, as my cord broke, I bought a cheap cord on amazon that had a sort of little crook where you plug it to the tablet, and weirdly it now stay perfectly in place and I can now draw on my laps perfectly :D

IT IS WORKING PERFECTLY!
Only the pen died like... two months ago? The nib was falling and couldn't hold anymore. However it gave me the opportunity to test the customer service, they were really helpful and fast (as well as super nice to talk with), but my pen was really broken and I had to buy a new one as the warranty is only for a year. 
The new pen cost me 15€ (80€ for a new Wacom pen ;) ) and is working perfectly so I'm really happy with my tablet :D

Oh and I also broke the cord, but that's only my fault I'm really hard with keeping cords unscathed ahahhaha

Thank you so much for the reply
I ordered mine last Sunday.. i hope i am that lucky to get such a good tablet( as in luck game thing ) and everything works just fine:3
Considering their price compared to wacom they're REALLY cheap and affortable, like you say.

Oh that's great, don't hesitate to come here to tell me what you think of it :D And well, with those kind of things, it's all luck. I had so many wacoms, and none working perfectly, which is incredible when you know the number of people who had perfect devices x")

And it's been proven that a wacom tablet (not the cintiqs though) cost less than 80$ to make so.... they're really overpriced x")

I expect it to be delivered tomorrow but things can always happen..i'll reply again when i get it:3
Ohh that's really awful even though wacom is such a "quality promising" brand, but it's kind of comparable to huion too because i've read soo many negative reviews about the h610pro too but soo many posotive as well.. I guess every brand is the same
That really IS overpriced (º ロ º )
lauraacan's avatar
lauraacanHobbyist General Artist
well I'm convinced that with electronic stuff it's mostly about luck. I had to return almost all my devices at least once (phone, audio systems, computers, wacom...) and when I buy stuff, I like checking reviews etc. And I noticed that there is ALWAYS a few people complaining about having to return the product within a week or so. 
I think quality checks are way too light in some company. i was lucky with my kindle paperwhite, for example, but amazon is well known for not checking their screens enough, reulting in many e readers to be returned each year because of "stains"/"black lines on the screen" etc. 

Also with Huion, I noticed that some seller send "turcom" tablets instead of huion ones because turcom claims to be identical to huion, but that's not the case. Their tablet look like carbon copy of huions, but they are known to break much faster. 

Well I'm crossing fingers for you, but I'm sure it's all gonna be fine :D

Yeah there's no warranty that every product functions a 100% which has a very obvious reason- Humanity- even when most products are build by robots( or semi- robots) there are malfunctions and some people tend to forget about these things too and are often exaggerating when writing a review, f.E. .
I mean why should those companies make a qualitiy check? We already payed and if we have bad luck shipping is even as expensive as buying a new one...
Lucky you though :3
I recently read a review about a "Turcom Huion H610 Pro"( blabla)saying that it didn't work out, guess i know the reason why now :rofl
Thanks, i'm so looking forward to it already
lauraacan's avatar
lauraacanHobbyist General Artist
yes I saw that review.
thecolorless.net/posts/66149 this one?
And that definetly was a turcom they tested, not a huion. Turcom are only copycats and huion explained it plainty of times, they aren't linked at all. ;)

Well I'm looking forward for you too ahahah ! I always like to know what people think of wacom-alternative tablets. I once saw a chat on Adobe help center where the adobe person was saying that any other tablet than wacom is shitty and that no one should buy anything other than god saint wacom. Looks like some drawing tablet cartel, where even the greatest software maker refuses to recognize alternatives. CURSE YOU! 

That's why I'm always excited to see people try other brands, because seriously we need to stop devoting ourselves to companies like wacom, apple etc. That overprice so much their products...

Just curious, cause I haven't seen anyone else comment on this, if you reinstall Wacom drivers after this is installed does it still mess with it? If you don't know thats cool.
lauraacan's avatar
lauraacanHobbyist General Artist

Thanks for doing this review :D
I've been looking for an alternative to wacom tablets and this was very helpful.
I've heard it doesn't have tilt functionality, do you find that to be a problem in any way? 
lauraacan's avatar
lauraacanHobbyist General Artist
I'm not sure of what the tilt functionality is... if we're speaking about the ability of the tablet to recognize horizontal movements of the pen, then yeah the Huion doesn't have it. But to be honest I don't find it to be a problem since Sai don't recognize tilt sensitivity either. I never had any use for this fonctionalty, even with Photoshop with my Wacom.

But really, if you're searching an alternative to wacom tablet and this one seems to be ok for you, don't be afraid, it is a very good tablet! The only problem with it, is this story of cord which can easily unplug when I work with the tablet on my lap. To avoid it I either draw on a table, or use a support (book etc). ANd it's worth the 300€ differences between the Intuos Pro and this tablet ahahha!

If you have any other question don't hesitate to ask 8D
Kinnoak's avatar
KinnoakHobbyist General Artist
That's what I've heard. Glad it doesn't seem to be an issue. I don't usually use the tilt sensitivity, anyway.

The cord doesn't scare me too much, I usually leave my tablet in one position when I'm working. My old intuos has a similar problem, except I think it's because the plug is loose on it, which seems to be a common issue with those tablets :/

Yeah, the price is very impressive! I was shocked when I saw it.

Thanks again! :D

that sounds great! I did test a tablet, but it is a big thing to change from track pad to tablet.
lauraacan's avatar
lauraacanHobbyist General Artist
You draw on a track pad? o.o The.... the thing on computers??
Gosh this is such a small surface...

And yes this tablet is worth every cent!

FurYourDreamsHobbyist General Artist
yeah, everyone is surprised when they know that I do all my digital on a laptop track pad. XD
lauraacan's avatar
lauraacanHobbyist General Artist
I am more than surprised.... I am amazed O.o ANd wouldn't you want to have a graphic tablet instead?
FurYourDreams's avatar
FurYourDreamsHobbyist General Artist
