I'm recommended the Gao, but the XP seems like a newer better version but I honestly can't tell the difference aside from "XP pen doesn't need to be charged".

Haaaalp please. I'm investing in this for the future and trying to make it count.

There is really no such thing as "investing in the future" when it comes to technology purchases. Whatever you buy today WILL be outdated and unsupported before long. I bought a Wacom Intuos quite some time ago thinking it would be useful in web graphic design, and only used it a few times before the drivers became "legacy."

That said, you save $40 by getting the XP AND the lack of a rechargeable battery in the pen means one less point of failure as the hardware ages, so I'd go with that one.

Let me rephrase that.

I need a drawing tablet, and i figure i might as well splurge a little more for a better one to keep me going now than just "make do" with a smaller one for half the price and need/want to upgrade later. That's what I mean by "investing for the future".

yeah that seems to be a main selling point, but i heard one of them is 4k, so trying to figure out which, (If I can use it to replace my pc monitor which is outdated, that'd be nice.)

the Gaomon was what was recommended to me, and all the review comparisons pit the gao agains the XP Pen 2016, not this thing, so I dont really know the comparison.

and here i am with this thing XD

i bought it because i took graphic design in college and they provided a +$200 bamboo wacom tablet and it was fantastic.

so i bought that one to see if it would rekindle an old passion in drawing and it did. the problem was that the tablet was small, light weight and bug ridden. it constantly forgot button commands i setup, thinks that i lifted the pen so it would create gaps in the drawing and it was a nightmare with the undo button.

i'm gonna try again with this one

i just want one that works until i can decide if i want to make it hobby again.

H420 was always the cheapest recommended tablet I saw as well. I was going to get one, but someone mentioned the xp-pen line on kitsu when I mentioned it. After some research, it seems like they have favorable reviews. I bought a g640 today during the sale since I don't really need the buttons or wireless. Just to try it out.

Interesting how the Huion and xp-pen both have 640 models. That cant be a coincidence lol.

Gaomon.

because I was f***ing pissed at myself for falling asleep while waiting for my phone to chharge and woke up after the prime day sale ended so it jumped back up to 409 instead of 360 and I bought it anyway to spite myself, basically.

Should have just taken that as a sign to buy the XP Pen, but I dunno was just pissed at myself for falling asleep.

And I thought I was the only one that did that kind of thing to punish myself lol. It should be a fine tablet and the price difference wont be a big deal over time. They seemed like kind of a toss up tbf, but I was looking at an XP-pen branded thing myself today... well yesterday now, so I was just curious.

When they were the same price it came down to whether the better xp pen was worth not having a stand to prop it up and whether you liked the design more because they felt the same otherwise.

Plus now I can get a laugh by putting a gaomon sticker on my gaomon.
