Just a follow up on budget digital tablets; HA60 Monoprice and P608N Huion. Both continue to work exceptionally well - use the Monoprice more, and save the Huion when I want to do more elaborate painting (the extra pressure sensitivity* and smoother feel).
*See original review.
I am running both off the Huion supplied drivers. This eliminates the convenient buttons on the Monoprice - but no biggy. Every once in a while the drivers do not load properly at start up. Simply unplugging the tablet from the usb and then back in starts the drivers. If I have Photo Shop or Elements open when doing this, I have to click on the tablet icon to open the tablet settings dialog box and go to pressure sensitivity tab - place curser over the drawing area and then use the pen - this makes it register (start working) in all software (Note the pen tablet dialog box must be left open) till after working in Photoshop - quirky - YES, but I am too lazy to reload the drivers and .... this works - so...
System used Win 7 64bit.
Two tablets for less then the cost of a medium Bamboo, and both have higher resolution. No draw backs.
One other quick observation - the Huion seems a little bit more ruggedly built.
