A graphics tablet is used in the professional field of graphic design as an input device on the computer. Alternative names are also Digitizer or Digital Tablet. It is suitable for many different applications such as image and video editing, drafting for the industry or even presentations. Depending on the range of functions, the enclosed digital pen (also called digitizer pen or stylus) can be used to transmit not only the pressure intensity to the computer, but also its inclination and rotation. In this category you will find various new and refurbished graphics tablets from reputable manufacturers, such as Wacom.
What features should be considered when purchasing a graphics tablet?
The first main feature is of course the size, with A6 to A3 being used the most. Basically, it depends on what you want to use the graphics tablet. To make a signature every now and then or make quick sketches on the go, smaller devices are often sufficient. For large drawings and designs, however, you should resort to a larger format. Depending on the model, the function keys on the edge of the drawing area are available in different numbers and the connection to the computer is either via USB or wireless. Another technical feature is the resolution available. This is measured on graphics tablets in lpi (for lines per inch or lines per inch). Generally, the higher the value, the better the picture quality. For better illustration, for example, at 5080 lpi it can be calculated that this corresponds to 2,000 lines per centimeter (5080 lpi by 2.54 inches). This would make you already well equipped for professional CAD applications. Even with the pen, there are some differences, which are particularly noticeable in the comfort of operation. It can be wireless or wired and also contain programmable buttons. The pressure sensitivity is usually given in steps and should have a value from 512. However, pens with 1024 or more compression levels are more suitable for everyday use as they work more accurately. In addition, various tips as replacement or use as an eraser by turning the pen around are no longer a rarity and offer other useful advantages. In any case, working with a pen is much more accurate than with the mouse.
As with other peripherals, the supported operating system should be taken into account to avoid driver problems. Some manufacturers also supply additional software or other accessories.
