[Amazon.ca] Huion Kamvas Pro 12 Drawing Tablet ($360 - $80 = $280)

Clippable coupon on Amazon for $80, no idea on expiry. IMO best bang for the buck monitor tablet against similar brands like Parblo and Artisul. Uses an all in 1 cable, but requires external power - not much of an issue if you always use it at home, but keep that in mind for extreme portability.

The 13 inch version is $305 after coupon. You can connect it to Switch with a single USB-C cable. (But no built-in speakers. You can still connect a headphone jack to Switch unit and listen to the music)

The two brands you mentioned, do they require external power?

Would you happen to have a link to this @ $305?

By the sounds of it, I'm actually rocking the 13 (Non-pro) version myself, which I see listed at $315 with a coupon. Though the USB-C to USB-C cable is not included and you can't use any old cable due to the port depth - see Brad's review

I think both Parblo and Artisul require external AC power. The only one that doesn't is the Kamvas 13 (2020 model), where it can run off of 1 or 2 USB ports for power. On my desktop, it can run off of 1 USB 3.0 port

I have the 15.6” Kamvas Pro. Anyone want to trade for a 13” 2020?

Connect is to Nintendo Switch? Why would you do this? That seems like a pretty meh setup for a mobile display what with needing a powerbank for it, and if your home, then you have better options. I feel like most people's use case is for art in windows. Although, at this screen size, its really just for people with not enough money to buy the bigger ones really. If you have the money and want mobile, ipad pro is a lot better then this, and if you have the money a lenovo flex or hp x360 will be much more useful as well. Heck, I own the Samsun note line for mobile art, and while its obviously smaller, its function is much more convenient, as you already need a phone, and you have your phone on you at all times. Really never understood the logic behind people buying small drawing tablets beyond being a teen with little money.

If there is an optimal use case for a small one, I'd love to be proven wrong though. I'm legit in the market for a digitizer laptop, so if there are nonjank ways to make normal laptop+tablet working as a setup I'd love to hear it so I can have more laptop options.

What's the appeal of a smaller screen size beyond portability? I've been glancing at the 20 and 22" one.

Yeah, same question. I do get that the 20's are heavy. You wouldn't want to throw one in a backpack, but if you were driving, its not a big deal. The big issue is none of these are a computer, so you still need to bring a 2-5lb laptop, and then this, and then a powerbank. I could see the smaller sizes being usable while laying in bed. But in that case a laptop is needed anyways, so you could just get a digitizer laptop/surface and that covers both functions.

I found iPad pro better. Plus, it is portable. Quite the different price brackets though.

Thanks, I saw the refurbished gen 2? Model for $500ish so the difference isn't so bad.
