Huion KAMVAS GT-220 vs Wacom Cintiq 22HD review

Wacom Cintiq 22HD vs Huion GT-220: famous brand or newcomer?

Wacom Cintiq 22HD vs Huion GT-220

I need to compare the Huion KAMVAS GT-220 vs Wacom Cintiq 22HD to find out the difference between active areas. The Chinese product (KAMVAS GT-220) has 18.77 x 10.55 inches and the Japanese unit (Cintiq 22HD) surprises me with the much bigger area – 19.5 x 11.5 inches. The first one model doesn’t support a multi-touch feature, unlike the second one.

Design and Functionality

The Huion GT-220 versus Wacom Cintiq 22HD visual comparison shows me the difference between the numbers of buttons on the front side of the devices. The Huion has 5, which perform basic functions and the Wacom is supplemented by 16, which can be programmed as you wish. Moreover, the first one has a 21.5-inches monitor and the second one – 22 inches.

Comparing the Wacom Cintiq 22HD vs Huion GT-220 color calibration, I can say that the Japanese device has a more solid basis for this. The Chinese unit possesses less understandable recommendations. The Wacom has small challenges, coming in the form of process crushing. I mean, the drawing can be interrupted by the sudden termination of the program. I don’t notice such a problem while testing the Huion.

Stylus

The Huion stylus doesn’t have a rubber insertion, unlike the Wacom’s pen. Regarding the strength of the material, it doesn’t matter what you will choose: Huion GT-220 or Wacom Cintiq 22HD, because both pens show themselves in the best way. The dropping doesn’t influence the styluses functionality.

Huion KAMVAS GT-220 Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • The unit has really good speakers. Of course, the sound is not of a high quality, but it’s enough for most basic tasks.
  • The pressure range of 8k is really good. It gives me a solid range of control among the drawing processes.
  • Thanks to the high-pressure sensitivity (2.048 levels), the pen helps create natural, subtle artistic elements.

Cons:

  • The monitor on the bottom left side is sticking out.
  • The driver installation is a real headache. I succeeded with it after the third attempt.

Wacom Cintiq 22HD Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • There are no pixel flaws on the screen.
  • The sturdy build has an additional bezel for moving around.
  • It works well with most professional programs.

Cons:

  • I understand that such a set of function can’t be placed in a small and lightweight box, but it is hard to work with so heavy device (18.7 pounds).
  • All the buttons take too much area on a unit.
