Media Tablet Ultimate review

The styling of this graphics tablet owes much to Wacom, the market leader. Here, Aiptek has delivered a striking 24cm slab that offers a number of features found on more expensive professional models.

We like how the tablet can be set up for left- or right-handed users – other tablet developers please take note. Installation was simple, as was setting up the six ExpressKeys that are available to perform specific functions, start applications or open context menus. And the navigation wheel felt highly responsive.

The lightweight sculpted pen may be a little too slim for some users, but accurate cursor placement was possible thanks to the 4,000LPI resolution and 2,048 level pressure sensitivity. This tablet supports dual screens, so we had no problem using two Cinema Displays as our desktop.

A great package that offers all the essential tools and features at an affordable price

OUR VERDICT

This is a polished package that offers all the essential tools you would want in a graphics tablet, at an astonishing price. Whether you’re shopping for a tablet for the first time, or upgrading, this model should be on your list.
