Trying this tablet that costs 80% price of the analogs, I’ve been anticipating troubles with sensitivity and compatibility. Yet, there were none! This tablet has a nice smooth surface that is bigger than the previous models had, the response to the slightest pen pressure is immediate and a high-quality one. What is really convenient about this graphics tablet, I’ve installed the drivers within seconds. I worked with different programs starting with Photoshop and ending with Modo, and it worked without issues. What I noted, is that the PC does not “see” the pen once it gets into the sleeping mode. Unplugging and plugging the pen solves the problem but causes the interruption in the work, as the pressure parameters need resetting.
The first thing to note about this graphics tablet is its size. Being as small and lightweight as a notepad it allowed carrying it everywhere and using for drawing while traveling, making notes in both writing and graphs, editing photos, etc. I’ve had some problems with the eraser function - in the touch mode, it tends to slip off. However, other multi-touch features made me look deeper into the tablet possibilities. I found it useful for my comic painting hobby to scroll or zoom with my two fingers, swapping images, etc. However, the writing experience wasn’t so pleasant. It took time to get used to the small cursor and the feeling of the plastic surface against the pen tip. The PC functions (like dragging the objects, changing the names, etc.) take time to perform, because of the very sensitive pen (which is perfect for filling small areas with paint while drawing).
In comparison to Wacom, the Huion 1060 Plus has more developed design, easy setup, and far more attractive price. Meanwhile, the Wacom Bamboo, in the non-professional (beginner) comparison, is better for drawing / design hobby occupations and performing routine tasks like making notes and pictures during lectures.
Let’s compare the negative features of the Huion versus the ones of Wacom. Huion 1060 Plus has issues while trying to upgrade the default drivers. To compare, Wacom Bamboo is good for working with the laptop, yet performing operations with the files and objects requires practice - just as with getting used to the hovering pen point on the tablet surface.
Huion 1060 Plus or Wacom Bamboo? Choosing the handiest drawing tablet, I paid attention to the size, software compatibility, responsiveness of the drawing surface. To select the most fitting tablet between Wacom Bamboo vs Huion 1060 Plus, it is best to consider the final goal. Wacom Bamboo is very convenient for regular notes and hobby drawing / painting / restoring, while Huion 1060 Plus is the dream of the beginner artist needing functionality and large drawing area.
