Wacom Intuos

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Released in 2018, this is the newest generation Wacom Intuos. It’s a great entry-level tablet for beginners and artists who want to try digital art without going over budget. I recommend the Medium size tablet.


Wacom Intuos Pro

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The Intuos Pro Medium is a great tablet for beginners and professionals. It has more features than the entry-level Intuos models. The medium size is the smallest I would recommend.


One By Wacom

Rating: 2 out of 5.

A no-frills budget tablet. The bare essentials of what you need to draw on a computer. I recommend the Medium size tablet.

Not to be confused with the Wacom One which has a built-in display you can draw onto.

“But, Aaron, what about other drawing tablet manufacturers? Don’t they make tablets that are just as good as a Wacom?”

There are some non-Wacom brands that are not bad: Microsoft Surface Pro and Apple iPad Pro are decent for digital art, but they don’t fully meet my expectations.

The other cheap imitation brands don’t even come close to the quality and performance of a Wacom, so I wouldn’t waste my time to save a little money. Watch my reviews to get a feel for the differences:
