The real difference between types of Drawing Tablets

 There are basically three types of drawing tablets;

  1. A Simple Drawing Tablet (Pen Tablet)
  2. A Drawing Tablet With Screen (Pen Display)
  3. A Standalone Drawing Tablet (That doesn't require a computer)

1. A Simple Drawing Tablet (Pen Tablet)
It's a simple drawing pad without display screen and is cheaper than other drawing tablet types. Example: Huion H1161

2. A Drawing Tablet With Screen (Pen Display)
It's a drawing tablet with display screen. You have to just connect the PC with the tablet and the PC screen will mirror on the tablet. So, you can directly work on graphics and drawing on the tablet. It's a bit expensive than Pen Tablets and comes in a bit bigger size. Example: Huion Kamvas Pro 16

3. A Standalone Drawing Tablet
It's a drawing tablet with screen that comes with PC hardware and so it doesn't require a computer to work. In short, it's a drawing computer. You can work with various photo and graphics software. It comes in bigger sizes and costs higher than both the above drawing tablet types. Example: Huion Kamvas Studio 22

  • Tablets can be broken down into roughly 3 categories. 

    • Digitizer tablets (tablets without a monitor)
    • Monitor tablets (also known as display or LCD tablets – these are tablets with a monitor)
    • Tablet PCs (PCs and tablets in one device).

    A drawing tablet that works for a particular graphic designer might not suit your style. Hence, choosing the right drawing tablet is important

  • Good article, i've been using a standalone drawing tablet for quite a while now and i have been impressed by the quality and performance of this type of device. 


    Regular non-display tablets are great, but they fall short when comparing to a fully fledged standalone device.
