Ultimate Huion H610 Pro Review

huion h610 pro review

In this Huion H610 Pro review we will admit it's not a perfect drawing tablet. It's not perfect, because its name does not start with Wacom and yes, it does not have touch, nor is it as silent as an Intuos. You can't buy a wireless set for it and the stylus requires recharging. But what it does have, is a good price, a big drawing area and a proven track record with artists. I recommend it because sometimes, all you need is something simple and powerful. Something like the Huion H610 Pro.

Last Updated: April 08, 2016
Editor’s Note: The Huion H610 Pro is now almost 3 years old. Released in 2013 there have been other releases in the Huion brand, but so far I have yet to see anything significant to over take it.

The Stylus

The P80 has pretty black sleek design and has no slip coating for better grip. Like most styluses it has 2 buttons which function like the right and left click on your mouse. No pen tilt which might be important to you if you're looking to draw calligraphy. Good, strong pressure curve for getting harder lines at 2048 pressure levels.

Stylus Technology

Electromagnetic Digitizer

Software

Operating System

The Huion H610 Pro is compatible with the latest versions of Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Drawing Software

  • ArtRage
  • Photoshop
  • Corel
  • ZBrush
  • Manga Studio

Driver

I followed the installing instructions and never had an issue. Generally, it seems to me that most people who complain about drivers are the ones who failed to follow instructions. The Huion H610 Pro would not be competing for a bestseller spot on Amazon with Wacom if that were true.

The Tablet

It's big. It has more buttons then most artists will find use for and it has a good weight.

In Conclusion:

The bottom line is that it's a great graphics tablet. It's a fantastic entry level purchase for the drawing area size, price, and quality. However, do not buy it because it has good pressure sensitivity in comparison to an affordable Wacom product. Have you ever tried to tell apart 2048 colors? Because that is essentially what it means: being able to differentiate physically between 2048 pressure levels. It's a good alternative to a Wacom product in the same price range. Worried about drivers? Most problems happen because people do not have the patience to follow procedure recommended in the manual and they try to reinvent the wheel. If that fails consult Huion customer support who is going to help you in roughly 24 hours.

If you are still unsure go back to our drawing tablet guide otherwise make sure you install it right.

Installing

  • ​Uninstall any previous tablet drivers
  • Do not plug in the tablet before you've installed the latest drivers
  • Enjoy having no problems.
