If you are used to drawing on an iPad, a drawing pad with a screen would be better, but it would also be more expensive.

I use it to take quick notes (with one note), so it doesn't matter.

Another cheap comparable product: HUION HS64 Graphics Drawing Tablet

ive been using this drawing tablet for online classes for past couple years
its good
software is decent too
works well with doing annotations on documents, writing on virtual whiteboards and drawing things in microsoft paint
only improvement i would want is wireless but then that costs extra
also its micro usb instead of usb c

Anyone could recommend one with a screen so that you see what you're writing, also for taking notes, diagraming, etc...

So I can get this instead of an iPad pro to annotate pdfs? Sounds super

How is writing when you don't see what you are writing? Or you see what you are writing on the PC screen? Still. I always wondered how one works with such devices.

Yes you look at a computer. It's essentially just a mouse and you can draw with it. It also senses pressure. I love it for teaching online.

you hover the pen over the pad and the pad reads its position and puts the mouse there
pen over top left corner means cursor in top left corner
you move the pen and the cursor moves
pressing down on the pad clicks the cursor
you can see the cursor and its movements while controlling it

i have both the wacom pad and a surface pro 6
the surface pro writing is more 1:1 because the pen is over the screen
but the wacom is more comfortable because the screen is upright and the writing pad is horizontal
also the surface pro gets hot and its uncomfortable writing stuff on hot paper
wacom never hot

Yikes. I paid $219 for the Wacom medium (which is slightly larger than this) in 2016. And even than that was $60 off list! My daughter started with this for digital drawing, and it took a bit for her to get used to looking at the screen instead of the drawing surface. It's a bit disjointed. We eventually went with an Apple Pen and Ipad along the way, and she much prefers to look at drawing surface. Price seems reasonable though and seems to be the same at BestBuy.

Krita is definitely a good free software, might take some time getting used to but has all the necessary tools.

I was always jealous of my first year chem prof that used a wacom pad with a thinkpad to go through chem exercises with ease.

My handwriting is terrible so these scare me, I'd rather type so that everything is legible lol.

I got one to try editing photos with it and it was just too hard. Maybe I didn't spend enough time with it but I found the hand eye off compared to a mouse.. or writing

I'm looking for something to sign documents electronically occasionally. Doesn't need to be stellar quality either; just a low-cost option that would do the job. Is this a good option?

Still using my Wacom touch I got from michaels with the 50% off coupon + a cashier that actually let me use it towards electronics

I use it sometimes instead of a mouse because my arm gets fatigue from too much mouse use. With a bit of practice, you can be as productive as if you were using a mouse and it's great for when you need to sign something or if you like to draw. Kiddos like to mess around with it too in MS Paint or Photoshop

I have had this for a year and a half. You get used to it in about 2 hours of use. After that it starts to feel very natural. I am an IT and I use it for drawing IT related diagrams all the time.
