HUION H610 Pro V2 Drawing Tablet

I got a great deal at Amazon.ca and replaced my broken drawing tablets with this one for 80$. Considering my Wacom was about 500$ and had a fraction of the sensitivity and about the same active drawing area, it seemed like a deal too good to pass up. The pen is battery less, something I look for in all things, and it came with extra nibs not just in the pen holder, but also in little bag as well.
*The photo above is the model I bought, I screwed up on the picture search and am too lazy to change it now. It's close enough. 

How does it hold up next to my former tablets? So far, really well. I did a quick (for me - 5 hours) drawing a Canadian Goose I saw on my bike ride last week as a test of how it works with pen work. I am very happy with the results. The only things I am not loving are that the surface of the tablet is a little slippery and the pen nib seems off, but these are likely just getting use to a new device problems.

Replacing old, loved computer equipment is a pain in the ass. This is the main downside to digital art. That being said, seems like you were able to without a huge cost and no loss in quality. Lovely goose picture!

A good thing about the evolving equipment is with time much of it is equal to or better than the stuff from a decade ago. I never would have thought drawing on the iPad would be on par with the computer or that a drawing tablet that wasn't even possible then would cost so little now. Sketchbook is free now and keira has improved dramatically recently, so it's all getter more affordable. I am drawing an old barn now and getting much better control of the new pen and tablet than I had with the goose.Haven't tried anything in colour yet though!
