Parblo Coast22 Review

parblo coast 22

Watch out Wacom, you have competition.
Not only does this model have a clever brand name it also packs a lot of punch for a pretty good price.
I had no idea that this monitor tablet existed but I’m glad that I found it because the stats on this particular model are off the charts.
A Stylus that doesn’t require a battery nor recharging. An ISP panel, 21.5 inches of drawing surface. Something just has to be wrong with this model right?
In this review I will try to answer that question. What’s the deal with the Parblo Coast 22 21.5?

The Stylus – No Battery, No recharging.

  • As said before no battery or recharging required.
  • Pen tilt ±45°!
  • 2048 Pressure Sensitivity
  • Eraser

For a long time I was under the impression that only Wacom had access to such hardware. I’m glad to admit I was wrong. This stylus has everything you’d expect from a Wacom pen and the monitor tablet comes at a fraction of the cost.

The Monitor/Display

IPS panel

An IPS panel is the main technical specification you want to look out for ever you’re buying a tv, monitor or screen for any purpose. If a monitor has (IPS) In-plane switching you know you’re getting a really good monitor. You know this because an ISP panels have the best colors and the best viewing angles in comparison to other monitors.

  • Pen tilt ±45°!
  • 2048 Pressure Sensitivity
  • ISP Panel
  • 21* diagonally
  • Eraser

    What users think


    As it is a new product there aren’t too many reviews on amazon about it but it’s always possible to return it if it does not live up to your expectations.
    But the few that have already used it give it favorable reviews and frankly I’m not suprised because the monitor display is really made of quality components and truly features everything an artist would want. A review by Sycra also reports that they are really satisfied with it. They say it’s sturdy and the backside wiring you’ll notice is great too.


    The only real downside is that this model does not have touch sensitivity.

    In conclusion I think this is the start of the decline of Wacom supremacy. The EMR tech stylus coupled with high quality monitors makes you wonder what are you really paying for when you buy a Cintiq? So you get 2048 pressure sensitivity, pen tilt and ISP panel. You do not need anything else.
