Xencelabs Pen Tablet Medium Bundle Review – Should You Buy It?
Two, which type of tablet would you prefer to work with a pen tablet or a pen display tablet? You know the main difference between them is that the pen display tablet does have a screen and users can directly draw or sculpt on the screen, but pen tablets doesnt have any screen. Actually i asked this question in my community post section and i got different answers. Look at the woods here, my friends almost like to use both of them, but why they said pen tablets are affordable, its simplicity. I can work very well with a normal pen tablet and it takes up little space on my desk. I have both its good for beginners to start with pen tablet, but if youre intermediate i would recommend display tablet. But yes, it is expensive, but both gives the same results. Only practice required about pen tablet, theyre cheap they make nice sounds. They are very comfortable to use. I use both, but i prefer pen tablets, probably because i got used to them and im more precise and comfortable with it. I can watch precisely where i draw and everything around it without having my hand in the way i like to pen display tablet, because i can position my body wherever it is comfortable, instead of being forced to sit exactly one way to be able to see my Screen my display tablet is small enough that i can move it around easily and even put it on my laptop.
If i wanted to im close to making that decision what to choose, i want to go deeper into sculpting, but mouse has its own limitations. Pen tablets are cheap, dont have any distance or distortion and overall better. I like pen, display tablet. I have coordination problem between screen and tablet using the pen tablet, the pen display is much easier to use so, as you saw guys, people have different opinions and different interests and and its really up to you that which type of graphics tablet you are comfortable working With actually i reviewed the pen display tablet before i put it up here, make sure to watch it, but in this video im going to introduce to you a good quality pen tablet, which is scent slabs. Actually, the company sent this product to test and give my honest review. I really appreciate that im gon na show you whats in the box and how to use it also im gon na sculpt for a while using this tablet for testing. So definitely you would figure out that what is my opinion about this tablet and which type of tablet? Actually i prefer to work with so lets, get started? This package is send slabs pen tablet, medium bundle with quick keys that the company sent me to review lets quickly open it, because im so excited to show you whats in the box. Okay: first, when we open it, we would see the sense, labs and tablet on the top.
The first thing that i noticed about this tablet was the quality it can compete with other popular tablets, and the second thing is its size, its a medium sized tablet, not too small and not too big. Its really nice also its well designed and because of this nice slope, to the bottom. It could give your wrist a rest also. It has adjustable led lights on the surface, which can define the active drawing area so cool on the top of the tablet. There are three function buttons which you can customize to your own needs in the driver. The next thing we have here is this nice case, its a good quality pack that can protect the tablet and its accessories when you want to keeping them safe at home or even carry them somewhere else. I like it. The next thing is this classy pen case. As you can see, we have different sized pens inside the case. The thin pen, which is actually so similar to a real pen or pencil, has two buttons which you can assign any shortcuts to them, and the thicker pen has three buttons that same as the previous one. You can program them inside the free drivers, so both fans are fully customizable battery free and also has an eraser at the top. Also, we have the usb type a that you can plug in to your pc and install the drivers in order to connect the tablet to it and start using it.
There is another usb type, a to usb type c adapter that you can use with the cables. If you have a pc with usb type c input here, there are two types of spare nibs that you can check, which one works perfectly for you. The next thing we have here is this well designed quick keys, which comes only in the sense labs, medium bundle package. It has one wheel and eight buttons and generally using this device, you can create up to 40 shortcuts per application and group sets of related functions. Like sketching painting sculpting or 3d modeling, so if you have one of these, you can speed up your workflow, so its really up to you. The next thing we have here is this drawing glove, which is similar to other brands. Also weve got two different cables, one for the tablet and another for the quickies, but the good news is that the tablet can work without these cables through wireless. All in all, the build quality of everything is so good, and i like it if you cant, afford – and you really dont – need the quick keys to have extra shortcut buttons and want to pay less. You can only buy the tablet itself now for connecting the tablet to your pc. You just need to plug this usb into your pc and then install the drivers. It works through wireless easily.

When you open the software, you would see a very easy to use interface. First, you can choose pen tablet and assign any shortcuts. You want to these three buttons on the top, or here you can choose any color for the light on the tablet. Next, you can choose three button pen and here adjust the pen pressure or here program the buttons on the pen. For example, i chose double click, ctrl z and right click here and if you choose thin pen, you can do the same process as well. Also, when you choose quick keys here, you would see many shortcut keys here. For example, here the wheel has four modes that you can switch between them using the middle button on the quick keys device. Here you can create any shortcut you want for the wheel like scroll, zoom, rotate brush size, as i said before, you can set up to 40 different keyboard shortcuts with this device. Actually, there are eight different buttons at the side of this controller that by using them, you can set keyboard shortcuts related to the software. You are working with like photoshop, blender, zbrush or others, and also you can set five different groups in each software that by using this single button here you can change which group you want to use so now guys, im gon na show you how the pen and Tablet work: while im sculpting its just a test.
We are not going to create a character. Actually you should wait for my next video for this purpose and now just practice with my previous videos. So, as you see guys, i prepared and connect everything, and now we can start creating so guys, first of all, im gon na test the pen and explain its performance as well. As you see, im choosing different brushes like clay strips or draw sharp brush and first i use the pen and press firmly and lower the pen pressure and you see it creates smooth lines and then, when i press harder, you see it creates thicker line. This works without any issues. I really like the pen pressure sensitivity and it works great. Actually, both pens have 8192 levels of pressure, sensitivity and 60 degrees of tilt. The pens are so light when youre working with them and i feel really good about them. Yeah theyre. So cool just dont pay too much attention to the head im sculpting because actually its the first time im using a pen tablet, i mean a non screen tablet. You know when you use pen tablets, you got ta draw on it and the result would appear on a screen elsewhere. And this is a challenge for me because im really not used to using these kinds of tablets its hard for me to sculpt with a bit and definitely it does take some time getting used to, of course, im using this for a week, because i wanted to Share with you my experiences and tell you my honest opinion, but i need more time to get used to it, but one thing that i like to mention here is that compared to my giant xp pen, this sense lapse is really lightweight and cool.
You know its more convenient to move or carry wherever and whenever you want, even though a lot of artists prefer to draw on a screen tablet directly because they can see exactly what they draw or sculpt just like when drawing with actual pen and paper. I think these pen tablets, especially the quality ones like this one, send slabs have other useful features.
