I bought this refurbished directly from Monoprice for $300 when they were offering free shipping. I use this with my iMac that runs Sierra and can confirm that it works great! For those asking how this is for painting etc. it pretty much works just like my 13HD Cintiq just without the shortcut keys, so if you have experience with Wacom products this comes really close to those. As long as this keeps working I can't recommend this enough for people looking to do art digitally on Macs, unfortunately I can't vouch for how it works with Windows computers.
Anyone use these for substance painting or texturing work etc? How's it for that?
My first thought when reading the title was, "People buy tablets just to display their pens?!"
Has any of you have been using it on Windows 10? If so, could you configure both pen buttons to work? I cannot use the one that is further from the nib: it is greyed out in the drivers.
Any clue?
Yeah.. this is currently available on monoprice's own website for 449 new. GG massdrop. 15 less than here after shipping to my home, and already recieved.
I would like to update my previous comment about the pen being 100% irreplaceable. This tablet is a rebranded Parblo Coast22, with less bells and whistles (i.e: no pen stand, hence why in amazon you'll find Monoprice the cheaper option), and you can buy a replacement Parblo Coast22 pen from Amazon, but they only seem to ship from China. Ebay is the only other site I've checked and that also, only has shipping from China. Both the tablet and pen looks exactly the same, and a customer review on Monoprice stated that the Parblo Coast22 pen works, surprisingly, better.
I have ordered two, and will be updating this as soon as the pens arrive.
Here's the link to the pen: https://www.amazon.com/Parblo-Cordless-Battery-free-2048-level-Sensitivity/dp/B01EZN624A/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1493349334&sr=1-1-fkmr1&keywords=parblo+coast+22+pen

By wiggly, have you been trying to draw lines slowly? Most tablets (even Wacom to a certain degree) will exhibit this behavior when the pen is being drawn across it very slowly. My replacement pen arrived, and to answer your question, they both perform exactly the same. Have you made sure to install the driver before plugging the tablet in? There's a whole plethora of issues if you don't do that.

Thanks for your answer. I use Wacom products on a regular basis, both at home and at work. I run some tests on the Cintiq I have at work (not one of the latest models) and definitely the diagonal lines are not as wiggly as on the MP Pen Display, even when tracing suuuuuuuperslow, and also using a ruler to make sure the movement is steady. I guess it's just the quality of the product, then. It's not something that bothers me, but some people have been asking me about the display, so I wanted to make sure it was not a problem of my unit.
Also, have you been able to configure the second button on the pen? With the latest drivers under Windows 10 I'm only able to configure one of the pen buttons. The other one is always set to 'Double Click'. Would you mind confirming that is the behaviour you have with your setup?
Thanks a lot!
Updated the drivers, changed the cables, etc, etc, and the driver  does not let me calibrate it to use it in portrait mode like a drawing pad. I'm glad Monoprice sells these, and there aren't many options for digitizing screens, but between the limitations and the power+video+USB connections, it feels like a proof of concept.
Assuming additional iterations appear, I'd prefer they sport a USB-C single-plug setup (good reason to buy  Monoprice's USB-C cables!) with an orientation setting option in the driver. Even if a breakout box is needed, at least it can happen under the desk.
And a mount for the irreplaceable pen. I feel like I need to strap a Pebblebee onto the pen so I don't  lose it and turn the pen display into just another 1080p 22" monitor.
Is this capacitive? Can I touch it with my fingers or would I always need the pen?
qschellenberg
you will always need the pen. Monoprice used to sell the pens separately, but stopped doing so. So be sure to be extra careful to keep your pen in a place you can find.
Not to mention with the HELLO20 coupon code you save $100 if you order from Monoprice
Anyone ever use this for omnigraffle?
Thing that bugs me is there is no details on what processor and memory is included in this tablet and what the storage device is used for it either. Without those two details, I am not interested in buying this. I even checked at Monoprice and they left out those details which make it suspect.

It's just a display, not a tablet. They are using the word tablet not in the contemporary sense of a mobile computing device, but in the more traditional sense of a drawing or writing tablet.
Yes this is simply a display with pen sensitivity not a standalone computer
Fellow Americans, you can get this at $479.99 with free shipping at Walmart or NewEgg or Jet, delivered much sooner

gonna preface this with a restatement that i was able to try the tablet out in windows 10 and it worked well. i don't think it's a bad product but contrary to what was stated it doesn't actually have linux support. that kind of makes my experience all the more frustrating since even a certified refurbished wacom 22" cintiq (which does work in linux) is going to be $1000 more than this and it'll be a while before i (if i ever do) make that purchase.
Heard back from Monoprice tech support and they don't have linux drivers or know what to do... at least the person i talked to didn't. lack of drivers isn't surprising since they weren't available for download on the monoprice website and the hanwang tablets (what this registers as to a linux system) are supposed to use the linuxwacom drivers which are usually already included with the kernel and don't have to be downloaded. if they list linux support you'd think there'd be at least something they'd know to do.
the bosto 22hdx drivers at least get it started tracking on linux... but it tracks weirdly to a small portion of the screen in the top left.... and then directly out to the side and directly below that portion. plus, even though the stylus seems to work in that small portion it doesn't seem to divide the stylus/eraser up from the tablet like every other working tablet i've seen on linux has.
i'm currently in the process of seeing if i can get a refund from monoprice since i bought this for linux with claimed support and it isn't working. a major deciding point in that was that the bosto drivers that at least allow it to track improperly and still unusable rather than not at all haven't been updated in 2 years so any new conflict that arises from other updates outside of the bosto driver is unlikely to be resolved even if i do get it tracking properly for now.
+EDIT+ since people are still endorsing this i thought i'd add that i did eventually find that someone made a driver works on linux with this about a month after i sent mine back. https://github.com/stacksmith/Monoprice_22_linux_kernel_module found that out while trying to search for a display tablet that works in linux a couple of months ago. that said, it hasn't been updated in the better part of a year and there were reports that it didn't work with linux kernel 4.10 so who knows if it works with 4.11 or 4.12. if not then that's a problem for anyone with a Ryzen CPU.

Thank you so much for the testimonial! You just saved me a ton of money.
So I did my homework and it turns out that this is one of the best alternatives to Wacom. OK it lacks certain stuff, drivers are problematic, but these are software issues that are matter of time to be solved. I am not so good at drawing, will use it more for 3d sculpting, will appreciate few words by all who have it or tried it. Sadly Massdrop is the only way I can get it at decent price in Europe.
Aphelion
I used a Wacom Cintiq 13hd before, it's a great experience and works very good with photoshop (not sure about 3d sculpting). If this is almost similar to the one I talked about then I can recommend this one, too.
recieved mine on the 29th. if linux support is there it isn't plug an play with ubuntu. i haven't found anything of help on the monoprice website.
it did work well in windows 10 using a not so new krita animation beta that i had downloaded a while back so i know it isn't faulty. if i were a windows user more than at work or a couple times a year at home then i'd be pleased as punch. if that were the case then my only complaint would be how blazing that blue power led is at the top/center of the case and blasting me right in the eyes. there shouldn't ever be a power led on a monitor that isn't diffused somehow or dim. i just cut a tiny squre off of a post it note and stuck it over that though.
unfortunately, i do like linux so currently i have a nearly $500 monitor, which does look nice and have nice color + viewing angles but that isn't what i wanted.
i do get lsusb info from it and when i do a usbhid dump i can tell it's sending data from the pen use.
i just installed raspbian on my rPi3 and it's responding there the same way as it is on my linux desktop. so it isn't working there out of the box either. so obviously there's been a change to something somewhere since that comment i found that it worked on the rPi running raspbian. whatever that was is probably why it isn't working on my desktop either.
sent a support e-mail to monoprice yesterday (friday) evening but they only reply on workdays so i'm still waiting to hear from them.
aside from that lsusb and some web searching tells me this has the same vendor and product ID as a bosto 22HDX for the digitizer/graphics tablet parts. it registers as a hanwang device. some of which apparently are supported by the linuxwacom drivers but this doesn't seem to be one of them or something else is going wrong. there are linux bosto drivers for the 22hdx but i'm going to try a few other things before i resort to that.

I've gotta say, seeing Massdrop carry through with this drop in spite of it actually costing customers more than ordering direct from Monoprice has really damaged my trust in the company.
Potential178
the drop saved me a bit of money since it had free shipping for me either way.
you think it's cheap to ship internationally when you don't have warehouses with stocks of this stuff all around the world? i'm surprised people haven't figured out that people in the US usually get the best shipping prices from massdrop because they're a US based company and people outside the US are generally screwed over by the actual shipping costs, customs fees, duty taxes and other assorted insanity all of our governments force on us.
Massdrop, this is only $20 (or $30) less than the direct price from Monoprice - but your shipping cost is twice as high ... so to purchase this here would actually cost more than to buy direct, and take far longer to receive.
Total price if ordered today from Monoprice with 6 day shipping to Canada: $542.60 Total price if ordered from Massdrop: $569.99 (or $559.99)
I'm sure you'd agree that it's misleading to post an MSRP of $599 when the manufacturer sells it for $499, and a disservice to your customers to continue a drop which, including your higher shipping costs, will ultimately cost them more than purchasing direct.
Potential178
Looks like its 480 with free shipping to me.
Koori
probably due to where you are. mines coming up with $170 for shipping :(
Its not a Tablet, its a monitor that has a pen, touch and tilt, that's all. There is no computer hardware inside. If there were they would be listing the computer hardware specs along with the display specs. Calling something that everyone knows means a complete computer is just not right. This is just a monitor not a TabletPC at all. I knew Massdrop was getting bad on things but this just takes the cake. How can anyone trust them when they can't even get the facts and terminology of a product right.
Impulseman45
dude graphics tablets (which is exactly what this is) have been around a lot longer than "tablet"PCs you need to fact check your crap. people interested in digital art are the target market for this and know well enough exactly what this aptly named and listed product is.
massdrop can't help that the masses started calling their giant non-call making smart phones without any sort of pressure sensitive pens "tablets" decades after these kinds of things were called tablets. so really it's the masses who should have gotten their facts strait to start with. granted this one is a display version which can lead to some confusion because the general masses aren't exactly bright enough to realize different things can be called the same thing and can't wrap their head around the idea that a device used to digitally write or draw on with a pressure sensitive pen could be called a "tablet" and may well have even been called one first are the issue.
honestly i don't know why they ever stopped calling those things you call a "tablet" slatePC's and started calling them "tablets" when the best you could do with them when that started was some crappy low res digital finger painting. they certainly had almost nothing in common with "a flat slab of stone, clay, or wood, used especially for an inscription" or "a writing pad" like these properly named kinds of tablets do.
tl;dr thank you cap'n obvious, we know this has no PC hardware in it but rather is a piece of pc hardware. the terminology is correct and put to better use than you realize... since you apparently never learned the definition of tablet other than just that's what they called those giant non-phone cellphones. you touched on a long standing pet peeve of mine, not an excuse just a reason. sorry for being a douche.
Impulseman45
Hi Impulseman45. Tablets are what these have always been called, they've been around for decades. As wikipedia states up top, Graphics Tablets, not to be confused with Tablet Computers.

Just buy a surface pro 3. /discussion
Knaj
well, there's our definitive answer to the problem of the dvi-d vs dvi-i port.
wish i had thought of that. now that we've solved that problem how do we work around being locked into the surface pro 3's computer hardware, small screen size, and low pressure sensitivity?

The Monoprice site says this is DVI-I, however the picture of the ports (on the Monoprice site) look like DVI-D (missing the 4 pins surrounding the flat pin). I'm tempted to trust the photo and get a DVI-D cable. Can anyone confirm this?
search
BryanVB
i'd say go with a dvi-d cable. dvi-d cables will work like normal when plugged into a dvi-i slot since dvi-i contains both dvi-d and dvi-a pins (digital and analogue) making dvi-i compatible with both analogue and digital outputs. which is why you can adapt vga to dvi-i and vise versa but you can adapt vga to dvi-d and vise versa without an active converter to change one signal type to the other.
the 4 extra pins in the the dvi-i are just needed if you're going from analogue outputs. such as with a vga to dvi-i adapter/cable. even if your computer only has an analogue output (vga) then you'd still be covered since this has a vga input. if you've got a dvi-i output on your computer it will send out a digital signal and you can just use a dvi-d cable regardless.
it's been a long time since monitors made the switch from crt to lcd (analogue to digital) and needed some sort of forwards/backwards compatibility. dvi-i is really just a leftover from that which made it an easier transition to digital. the motherboard i bought for my family's home theater pc 5 years ago didn't even have an analogue output on it, dvi-i or otherwise.
BryanVB
I have this and i can confirm that it is dvi-d.
i found a comment in reply to an amazon review from april 2015 that said this worked well on a RasPi using MyPaint for linux (as far as it could on such low power hardware anyway) and required no extra setup. they said some of their issues on windows weren't issues on the Pi so it seems linux support for this is actually there and decent.
i may be the only one here who actually cares about that but in the chance that there's another linux user interested i figured i would post this since i've let this drop pass a few times since i first left a post asking about it's linux support to get no replies and i never had any luck when searching for any information about how well it works in linux.
DaedalJS
There are at last two of us who care.
They list Linux compatibility, so I'm assuming they don't use a weird driver. If that's the case, it should be fine in the Gimp, Mypaint, etc. that use standard pressure sensitivity interfaces.
I think the main reason why you never hear about compatibility is that touchscreen support under Linux is mostly used by people with Chrome books and other weird devices. Expensive graphic design devices tend to be bought by graphic designers, who as a rule tend to be allergic to awful desktop environments, or, if forced, will muddle through with Windows.
j.a.l
if only stating Linux support meant they didn't use a weird driver. i've seen too many reviews of people jumping through hoops and had to jump through a few of my own to take that at face value. the way it just seemed to work in raspbian for that reviewer indicates they don't use weird drivers though. so i'm willing to take a chance on it based on that.
i'm not sure i'd say OSX wasn't an awful DE so much as just a better looking one... according to some. looks don't make it a joy to use though, it's a lot of little conveniences and personal preferences that'll do that. unfortunately for me my personal DE preference was recently (hopefully temporarily) nixed by my purchase of an RX 480.
Yeh looking to buy both and just said on wrong chat. Soz I am scrub
Im in the UK looking to buy a gtx 1060 can anyone tell me the conversation rate I will be charged
AtomicKitten
errr, are you on the correct discussion group? Cos if you are looking for a 1060 graphics card, this is a discussion group for a display tablet :)
AtomicKitten
I just bought a GTX 1060 from Scan . Co . Uk. some are on back order now but there are some available!
$170 shipping to the UK...
Auhal
The same to Poland. Somebody want to make additional money on massdrop...
Don't buy this here. Buy it on Amazon and get faster and cheaper shipping (I didn't even have Amazon Prime and mine got shipped from the US website to Canada in 3 days for $80). It's a great tablet for the price. Admittedly I don't have much experience with alternatives, but I did have apprehension about whether or not this will do the job, and I'm happy to say that for the price it absolutely does a great job.
The only problems are 1. The surface is a glossy glass like surface as opposed to a desired matte surface. This causes a) glare under too much light, and b) friction against your bare hands. You'll need one of these: https://www.amazon.com/Huion%C2%AE-Artist-Glove-Drawing-Tablet/dp/B0147WCE14 to avoid friction while drawing.
2. The color accuracy and brightness/contrast etc are GOOD but it is evidently not perfect. It is comparable to an entry level flat screen LED display ($100 USD range, that kind of thing).
3. Even though the pen has 2 buttons and an eraser, only one of the buttons can be rebound. The eraser remains the eraser, and the second button is set to double click and is grayed out and cannot be rebound for some reason. I suspect they will fix this in a driver update...hopefully.
4. Pen hover distance is about a centimeter. This isn't bad but there is no way to adjust it and I'd personally like it to be higher.
5. The pen tracking tends to cause the cursor to dance around a tiny little bit, about half a millimeter when the pen is held in place. Actually I'm not quite sure if it's the tracking doing this or if it's the glossiness/slipperyness of the screen.
Those are the only issues over the course of a month I've used it. I consider this to be an excellent value proposition. I am more than content to deal with these problems, as long as they don't get worse and the product lasts. The driver installed easily and works well. Although previous drivers from any other tablets must be uninstalled. I'm using it on Windows 10, through a DVI port, though VGA and HDMI are also available. Software compatibility is also very good. I primarily use it for Toon Boom Harmony and Photoshop, but I've also tried it with Adobe Illustrator and Animate (Flash), and TVPaint and they all work great.
IMO the stability of the drivers is the major advantage with the Monoprice vs other non Wacom units. Both Huion and XP Pen have models that cost a couple hundred more but have IPS displays, but I've found these Chinese manufacturers always tend to have some slight issue, be it driver compatibility with a certain Windows version, or lack of support for one particular program ("hey it works great on everything, but oh wait for some reason I don't have pressure sensitivity in Adobe Flash??"). You'll see this reflected in many reviews of these manufacturers. And to me it feels like taking a gamble on whether this will work for your computer and the software you use. Not only does this particular Monoprice seem to have a very good track record with most customers, but they have also already updated their driver several times since the product launched earlier this year, showing continued technical support for the product.
So TL;DR - Not perfect, but excellent value proposition that's well worth the money especially for the stability and compatibility it provides.
Just a heads up. You can buy this on Amazon.com for $468 with free one day delivery if you're a Prime member.
