The Ugee 1910B review is devoted to the inexpensive and high-quality tablet that allows drawing directly on the screen and seeing the results immediately. It features great performance close to professional models that are more expensive.
The product needs to be hooked up to a computer (it fits both MAC and Windows PCs) and requires downloading additional software to start working. The Ugee 1910B installation takes nearly 10 minutes. First, it’s necessary to uninstall old drivers and reboot if another tablet was used before. Download the necessary software from the drive or choose correspondent drivers from the official website of the manufacturer.
Once the Ugee 1910B driver is installed, it’s time to plug the tablet in via a USB and a VGA cable. Note that the majority of the latest computers lack a VGA port, so a proper VGA-to-DVI cord should be bought separately. Alternatively, the user can also get a DVI-to-DVI cable.
The drawing pen is wireless and needs to be charged prior to using.
The tablet is compatible with the majority of the animation, drawing, and photo editing programs.
The stylus is pressure-sensitive (it has 2048 levels of pressure) and responsive. The driver settings allow choosing the level of its sensitivity. Don’t press hard on the stylus since it can crack around the nib. It holds the pressure well around the curves and corners, as well as when the user makes fast consistent lines.
It has a basic TFT display with poor visibility in direct sunlight and some distortions at an angle. Note that it is a little brighter than traditional monitors. It features great contrast but can’t display the full spectrum of colors. The images look great, but the text is a bit blurry when browsing. The screen is easy to clean and it isn't prone to scratches. It doesn't get hot if used in an air-conditioned room.
Note that color settings should be adjusted to match the computer. For example, if the PC’s monitor supports high-resolution, it’s necessary to set the tablet’s monitor to the Extend mode. If the resolution is the same or lower than the tablet’s one, set it to the Duplicate mode.
This model has no hotkeys and all the options for settings are on the control panel of the monitor. In addition, there are some menu buttons on the bottom of the tablet to adjust to positioning, contrast, color temperature, and some other parameters.
The tablet is large (20.9 x 18.3 x 7.2 inches) and heavy (15 pounds) that’s why it should be on a steady surface, not carried around.
The glass screen is large and vibrant. For example, it’s possible to set up Photoshop on 3/4 of the monitor and still have space for photo references on the side.
The 1910B comes with a removable metal stand that is adjustable for angles with the aid of a lever on the upper back. The tablet package includes artist gloves, extra drawing pen, two chargers, and several nibs.
The stylus is rechargeable and the user can bind the buttons on the pen to different mouse click combinations.
The Ugee 1910B specs are enough to fit those artists that want to take their art to the next level, but can’t afford professional equipment. Good build quality, useful extras, battery-powered pen, and the easy drawing will gladden either a beginner or an experienced artist.
