i recommend the huion/monoprice over this, especially this as its what use to be the bamboo line if i'm correct, huion/monoprice trade blows with the intous pro medium for a far lower price.

Yeah, I have a Huion tablet and it works great. The only problems I ever have are in Gimp, and Gimp doesn't do well with any drawing tablet. The $70 price tag for a 10" tablet is also nice.

I wouldn't. Had one for a few days it stopped working pretty quick. Bought an Intuos and never looked back.

You got a lemon then. The huion 610pro is the first huion I have used but it's my third uclogic tablet. The old Intous, before wacom realized the bamboo was such a damaged name people actively avoided it and rebranded them as Intous, you have an argument to make however new Intous are bamboo's by another name, and are lesser tablets then what is offered by huion and I believe monoprice.
When you get to Intous pro, they are only better if you are willing to take advantage of the pen tilt and I believe they have touch now, if you don't then huion/monoprice offer as good a table for nearly 1/5th the price.
Meanwhile wacom sat on patents for so long that now that the competition caught up, they have very little to really offer. A batteryless pen, ok, that's convenient, but the AAA in mine last for 80~ hours active use, 5000~ inactive, so its almost a non issue. Pen tilt, I won't lie, to most people this is useless, but I use programs where this would be very helpful, but not on a tablet, on a penable display, and even here, monoprice puts out a penable display at 1/4th the cheapest one I would get from wacom costs. Touch, most people turn this off as there is little use they can figure out from it, however another feature i could use, but this time, also on a monitor, monoprice puts out a penable display at 1/7th the cost of the one that has touch.
But huion/monoprice have one thing over wacom that wacom will never touch, and that is price. People buy these tablets, even if they use wacom, because they are more comfortable taking something that's 50-70$ on the road apposed to something that's 250-400$
The only thing wacom has that's clearly over the head of its competition is the companion. A tablet win7/10 device that is a full fledged computer. HOWEVER, I 100% believe that you shouldn't be doing finished drawings on something mobile like this, and it should be instead treated like a sketchbook, and a used samsung galaxy note either phone or tablet would be better suited at again 1/6 to 1/4 the price of the cheapest companion sense they got rid of the hybrid.

I'm using a XP-Pen Deco Pro Digital Drawing Pad and absolutely love it. I bought it for 100 USD (give or take) so I was skeptical at first, but I've had no issues with it whatsoever and can only recommend it!

looks good, I Only have experience with uc logic based tablets. I recently moved over to a penable display, the 13/14 inch from huion, and I can say, the issues with penable displays are still there, the wavy line, however the only way that comes up is by using a ruler and making a line around 5-10 times slower than I ever would in a real world use case. while I have used wacom in the past, they have caught up on nearly every front to the point its hard to even see a place for wacom anymore, outside of a tilt feature and touch, which has gotten better since I last talked about it, but im very iffy on the value proposition. Honestly I can only recommend wacom if you are making enough money to even consider buying one off your art, otherwise I would go uclogic all day. but nice to know other tablet brands, and possibly pen types are catching up as well.
