So last week I was browsing facebook and noticed the Monoprice displays being mentioned. I had recalled them from about a year or so ago, and that they had fairly negative reviews. There was a huge cap between the screen and the display, the pen had massive lag, the pressure sensitivity wasn't supported in enough programs, ect. So despite it's cheap price tag I passed. So when I saw it mentioned I figured I would take a peek at reviews of the more recent ones and see if it was still as shitty as it was before.

I found several reviews, and over all they were actually fairly positive. So out of curiosity I was looking at them on ebay, found the manufacturer's ebay and well, made a purchase without really thinking nit through. At this point I am thinking 'well...ffff- I just dropped $500 I don't really have...well I hope it's worth it.' Since I have been needing a cintiq for a while, the idea of getting one for $500 and having it NOT be crap seemed amazing. The wacom ones are great, and I have gotten to use them at school. But they are insanely expensive and there is no way in the near future I could afford one.

So the tablet was set to arrive thursday, but instead came tuesday, so I was really excited to have it two days early! I immediately took it out and set it up, I had to see this puppy in action! Over all, I have to say it actually is pretty decent. Obviously the wacoms are better, but with this one being a fraction of the price it is a great way for an artist on a budget to get to use a tablet. It is 22 inches, and in 1080p resolution, to which I am glad. My existing monitor is 24 inches and having one significantly different in size would bother me.

While it would be nice if it had a matte finish instead of a glossy one, I didn't have any problems with drawing on it. My only complains would be it doesn't click so well if you are super close to the edge, so I would avoid that if you can. Also, I disabled the button click(I have never used it and click it on accident all the time so I always disable it) and despite being disabled, it still reacts when clicked. It simply stops me mid stroke instead of right clicking. But those are the only ones I have at this time. Other then that the strokes were coming out good, and the pen wasn't uncomfortable to hold.

I would recommend it for someone who wants a cintiq, but can't afford the wacom prices. It's a good way to get the feeling of it, and was over all a great purchase!

Do You Want to See the Moon Rise PREVIEW by Agirl3003
Do You Want to See the Moon Rise PREVIEW
Edit:// got on EQD =D

I started this one early last year, and shelved it while things in..life happened. I have decided I want to finish it and am revisiting and reworking it. This is what I have at this point, but I am requesting help on backgrounds. I have always been weak with them and would love some help from someone who is good at doing pony style backgrounds(Luna's room needs a good deal of work as I am sure you all noticed). It would help take some of the load off, and allow me to power through this faster and focus more on the characters, and finishing up the celestia puppet I need finished. If you are interested in assisting me you will be credited, and possibly brought in for other projects I have planned if you are up for it!

Either way, enjoy the little snippet =) you can also see it on my youtube channel

enjoy!

neat =D and yes she can, though not terribly well until she gets bigger, and her wings get larger.

Hey, do you do point commissions? I have 25 points to spare, and I think you could do this idea perfect for me. If you want more, I could try to pay you later, though, I'm not sure exactly how much later. If you don't, that's okay, thanks anyways. :03
