    Hello everyone.

    I recently upgraded my PC and now I'm thinking of buying new XP-Pen graphics tablet for it. As I have been using only a pen tablet DECO 02 for art, I'm thinking of getting a pen display. The problem is, I don't know much about them.

    So I'm looking for help in deciding what kind of pen display I should buy. It should be something that I can hook up into my PC, so portability is not an issue, though I am willing to consider the options.

    Thinking of this, I was going to get the XP-Pen Artist 15.6, but then I discovered that Wacom is planning to release the Artist 15.6 pro sometime next year. Because of the impending release, the Artist15.6 ( https://www.xp-pen.com/goods/show/id/225.html ) is currently on sale.
    So should I wait for the release of the pro version, or go with the Artist 15.6 ? Or is there another alternative that I should consider? Or is the pen display just a waste of my money and I should stick with the pen tablet DECO 02 ( https://www.xp-pen.com/goods/show/id/324.html )?

    Thanks for your time!

    If you're in the UK - there is one seller with the Dell Canvas 27 inch at £959 after VAT


    When they dropped down to £1499 they were a great deal but less that £1K is amazing - I got mine for slightly more. than £1K.

    Alternately, if you are happy with much smaller - the Artisul D13 has had some brilliant reviews and for the size it appears the Wacom 13 inch is no better but a whole lot more expensive.

    EDIT: Huion have just released the 13 Pro which is the first non Apple / non Wacom screen and pen that offers tilt support. Laminated screen and pretty good Adobe gamut. They're doing a deal for early adopters if you want to order direct from the factory.

    Looks even better than the Artisul.
