First deal so go easy on me

Found this graphics tablet whilst flicking through the Lidl Christmas leaflet and saw this for £39.99.

This is the exact same spec and design as the Aiptek 14000u graphics tablet which goes for around £70+ (own one myself, and it is an amazing tablet to use for digital painting and 3D work)

This deal doesn't start until tomorrow (13th December)!

Also comes with 3 years manufacturer's warranty

cool

its a good deal but i find my aiptek to be just too big? ( although that seems counterintuitive, and i did buy it because its big.. it just involves too much movement! and also. the drivers are rubbish, but maybe this one will be better? either way mind £40 is a bargain.

bargain for a tablet.

I'm more a Wacom guy, but heat from me too.

Looks like a good deal

Cheap. But probably no multitouch than?

Seen this too, good specs but i wonder how the build quality is compared to wacom for instance. I had a silvercrest a few years ago, came from lidl come to think of it but i found it difficult to draw with, often skipping my lines and the pen was very bulky and weighty.

EDIT: Heres a link to the Aiptek on amazon, i presume the silvercrest is identical to this but may be wrong.

amazon.co.uk/Aip…I5A

Mixed reviews on there, some love it whilst some hate it but id say its definately worth a look in.

Doubt it but then my intuos wasn't cheap and it doesn't have multitouch either and even one of the newer intuos 5 models doesn't have touch either.

I saw this on the Lidl website a few days ago and was considering one as a backup to my a5 intuos. I just don't like the idea of a battery in the pen and I don't know if it senses tilt.

Ohh daughter just asked if she could buy a graphics tablet. She is an excellent artist . As i know nothing about them looking for opinions please as to wether this would be suitable or would you recommend something else.

Hi yes, this would be fine. However, the top of the range brand of graphics tablets is Wacom and although their products go way up into the £thousands, their entry level tablet is quite good: amazon.co.uk/Wac…8-1

I started with this (branded as Aiptek) and it did me fine for years. That said, if the bamboo was about back then, I would have started with that.

Wacom is the best, not cheap though.

Pound for pound, I'd have to disagree. The cheaper model Wacoms are terrible. All the ones I've bought have failed within 12 months.I gave up on Wacom and reluctantly bought a Trust Widescreen Tablet, and haven't looked back since. Brand snobbery - as in my case - can put you off allegedly lesser brands.

well would you say that Wacom CTL-470K-DE Bamboo Pen is better than this?

If your daughter doesn't mind secondhand and you don't want to spend too much you could always keep an eye out for a secondhand Wacom intuos on ebay.
They seem to last for years and you still find people using selling the first model that must be ten years old anyway.
The intuos 4 had a different surface that wore pen tips down quickly but I think they may have changed it after a while ad you can always buy different surface overlays or use acetate or paper.

Here is my take on the Tablet!

I have voted hot as it's a good deal.

Personally I do prefer the smaller Wacom tablets, I have 3 different tablets inc a larger model, the one I always end up using is the small Wacom , it only has a small drawing area and it takes a little while to get used to but once you do it's great. I find it very difficult and tiring to use the larger tablets.

Not sure why someone said the Wacom was poor I have had mine for many years it cost about £70 around 8 yrs ago and has always been reliable.

Whatever tablet you buy I would urge you to search the web for a few Wacom basic tutorials (plenty on youtube) they will help you use any tablet. You have to persuade yourself not to use a tablet and pen like a mouse, i.e. dragging across the pad, once you master the right way it's use will 'click' into place and you will find it invaluable.

Bought one of these today, its great

Well took last week and really happy how it readily works with Photoshop including pressure sensitivity, so worth every penny.
