UGEE M708

The UGEE M708 Digital Painting Graphics Tablet, is one of the most affordable graphics tablets out there. Don’t let the cheap price fool you.

The UGEE M708 is definitely one of the most affordable tablets out there. You can sometimes pick one up for under $70. Which is incredible compared to other graphic tablet prices. The size of the canvas is large as well. The drawing area 10 x 6 inches and has a nice elegant slim build. It’s pretty big, but at the same time it doesn’t take up your whole computer desk. 

 

Specs & More

  • 2048 levels pressure sensitivity 
  • 5080LPI resolution
  • 8 User-Defined shortcuts 
  • Realistic Pen Feel and Drawing
  • Light-Weight
  • Slim
  • The Pen is Easy to Hold

 

I really enjoyed setting up the defined shortcuts on the tablet. For example, when working in Photoshop, you can simply set the shortcuts on your tablet to zoom in & zoom out, erase or undo. Adding costume shortcuts was easy and came in really handy, especially when I zoom in and out quite a bit when creating effects. You can customize 8 different buttons in total. The tablet comes in two different colors which are black and white.

Overall Pros and Cons of this product.

PROS

The price is unbeatable with surprised performance and accuracy.
Slim Elegant Design, It looks nice at your work space.
8 Customizable buttons which are simple to setup.
Large 10 x 6 inch Canvas on tablet.
Very high pressure sensitivity.
Extra Pen Tips and Two Pen Holders.
Easy to set-up in Photoshop.

 

CONS

I personally didn’t have very many cons with this products. A few things I wish it had was a built in rechargeable battery for the pen, instead you will have to supply 1 AAA battery. Which isn’t too big of a deal.

The drivers – I myself haven’t ran into any complications, but reading online there’s a few issues with the drivers located on the CD. But it’s best to install the latest drivers from their website. Located here.

I’m surprised of the overall performance for 60$. Honestly one of the best purchases of 2017 so far!
