At the end of last year bought a graphics tablet. Product is not as popular as other electronics, so the choice in most specialized markets are small, and the prices are often bite.
The basic assortment is the technique Wacom Xp-Pen and G430models from the line easier. But even someone like me, a novice user wants to have in his hands a lot more options than in the simplest and cheapest models of the popular flagship.
At a cost equal to the majority of tablets entry-level, on Aliexpress I found the tablet GAOMON M106K Professional. Here he was pleased by the presence of function keys, a complete set pozarzadowe pencil and a great set of characteristics.
The descriptions GAOMON was the favorite in comparison with the products that are on store shelves at the same price.

Buttons, keys and the surface of the pen input
The tablet has 12 function keys for setting drawing modes (pressing force, the stiffness of the stylus and other details that still have to understand the process of using the device) 16 and the touch buttons at the top that respond to the touch of the pen.
The tablet surface black Matt, very pleasant to the touch, when pressed, no squeaks, the case is made very qualitatively. The pen slides over the work surface with ease and confidence.
Don’t know how to assess a Pro, but tactile sensations drawing on GAOMON M106K-Professional similar to drawing on a paper sheet, and just need to get used to the fact that the image does not appear there directly, where lead pencil and on the computer monitor.
The number of function keys Gaomon at first seems redundant, but once you begin to understand a little bit, you know that with their help, you can work in any graphics program without a keyboard, which, of course, only adds to the convenience.
Pen on the side of the tablet a pocket. No stand no. So for those who like to lose the handle and discover it in the most unexpected place – better to have habit to clean the stylus in the pocket, where he kept quite tight and never falls out. Perhaps for this and created!
The only thing that initially caused difficulty tablet refused outright to work in the graphics software ArtRage, although the tablet is a competitor starts to work it without any special manipulation.
But the problem was quickly solved, it was necessary to go to Sai. In addition, to easily find and others are completely free on the official basis, «risovalka», with which the tablet gets on. But in my own opinion, GAOMON Professional and Sai were made for each other. To draw in this program is a pleasure.
The tablet lives up to expectations, draws, Amateur happy young artist. The pluses are many, minuses, given the price category, almost none.
Once again, the order is made on Aliexpress have Ofitserov here.
