Drawing screen discussion

I guess it’s time to open another thread to discuss drawing screens. The following are some of the screen with improvement in 2021 /2022 that I have been paying attention to:

Asus ProArt Display PA169CDV: 4k, 15.6", Wacom EMR, scroll wheel, touch enabled, thin bezel, two angle kickstand price expected to be 800$+

Wacom cintiq Pro 16 2021: 4k, 15.6" Wacom EMR Pro Pen 2 version, touch enabled, thick bezel, low kickstand, no button or wheel on device, single USB-C or HDMI and USB supported, 1499$

Huion kamvas 16 plus 4k: 4k, 15.6", Chinese EMR, no touch, no buttons or wheel, thick bezel, single USBC or 3 in 1 HDMI USB cable, foldable stand included, 829$

Bravo to Huion for making a big range of high res screens, but none of them have touch.

The Asus Art Pro and XP-PEN 16TP both have 4k, pen and touch, but the Asus has more portable design, scroll wheel an Wacom EMR as the advantage. If the Asus is priced in the 800-900$ price bracket, it would be a clear winner .

No comment about the Cintiq Pro 16, same old design for those who have the $$ and really need Pro Pen 2.

It’s interesting that Huion had added a lot of QHD options, as I find 4k overkill/ wasting resources for screen under 16". And the QHD 16 was actually 15.8" which is slightly bigger than the regular 15.6" size. If it had touch I would be really tempted. :laughing:

What would be your ideal screen? :grin:

Definitely the Asus ProArt. And that product line is almost always top notch. It does seem that it may need two USB-C cables to run, mind.

Asus have some Zen portable displays with MPP coming as well, for cheaper no doubt.

PS I just made your post a wiki (so anyone can edit it) as this list is going to grow.

Also, should tablets with display extension options be discussed here, or is that better suited to another thread?

Thanks, making it a Wiki would make it much easier for others to update. Tablets with display extensions can be included here too, as it’s a niche segment.

What about the older Lenovo monitor? I can’t remember the name, but they were going cheap on Ebay last fall, and a number of members bought one and liked it. Older EMR tech. Anyone remember the name?

ThinkVision LT1423p. Added to the wiki.

Before the old forum shutdown, someone found a bunch on eBay and there was a bit of activity around them.

Still use one regularly! Love that thing, it would be nice if it had better resolution though.

I still remember these. 39-45$ USB 3.0 13" Wacom screen. I would be very tempted to import one of these as an impulse purchase if wasn’t for it being a Displaylink device that would surely conflict with Super Display.

Grumble, grumble, can’t stealth edit on this forum.

Was anyone able to get the wireless functionality working with the ThinkVision LT1423p? That sounds like a simple, functional, cheap answer to a lot of things.

As I understand, it has a battery, uses EMR, and can be wireless. Right? Sounds pretty nice.

Can you power it through a USB-C to USB A connection? I’ve done that for other peripherals from my laptop, but not for tech as old as it.

I think there are different models, mine didn’t have wireless capability. It does run on the power supplied through USB, although it occasionally complains about insufficient power and dims the screen a LOT. It is indeed EMR, I am using my old white generic wacom pens that I bought in the X61t days. :smiley:

I remember there was two different model, one over USB and one wireless only. I wouldn’t expect much from the wireless-only model though, considering the technology of the time.

Even on 2022 devices, wireless drawing screen is still barely usable on the fastest wifi. I remember someone on the old forum mentioned that they managed to get Samsung second screen to run at acceptable speed to use, but it is less hits and more miss for me.
