Basically, it comes with this basic power plug with the standard USB connection, and they also provide additional plugs for all major socket types and based on your country.
You can use the correct socket for your plug. and then we have the pen in here nice casing for the pen, okay, let’s put all these aside and let’s. Take the most important thing in here: let’s open the cap inside you guys can find. The pen looks amazing, design and really light. Xp pens are always really cool when it comes to their product design. I really like the red line in the center, and in here you can find all the additional nibs additional nibs, which you can use over time. All right, and also you guys, can use this cap to place your pen for resting. While you are working which is really cool, and these are the all necessary components you need to connect your tablet for your system. Okay, let’s look into the pen display with the new device. It comes with this protective wrap, let’s take out the wrap. Okay looks really nice and we have this protecting paper in here and in here you can see all these solid buttons for your shortcuts and also the color wheel. I, like the fact they had the red color for the wheel same as the pen it’s, giving a very nice stylish design. So let’s take out this one and you can see very simple design but very solid build. I can feel from holding this it’s little bit. Heavy compared to some of the devices, but i like it because i’m not going to use this for traveling.
So if you are using this for home, this is very solid. Build let’s, see how it look when we connect to the pc. I have connected the device and you guys can find the power button in here i’m going to turn it on and we can see the xp pen loading and yes, so it has been connected. I don’t know whether you guys can see from this video. The color of this device look really nice, and this is a premium display. So you should get proper colors from this device, not like some cheap devices where colors are really washed out and it look very fake … But this one really look nice thumbs up for that and guys this xp pen, artist, 15.6 pro comes with a lot of good specs in here. If you go to their website, you can see the functions and features and in here, if you go to the specs in the bottom, you guys can see in here pen pressure level is 8192 level, so it’s very smooth guys. You can go from very low pressure to very high. I will show you guys in a while, and you also have the tilt angle of 60 degrees, which means that you can use this like. You are using on a paper like when you use this pen. You don’t have to keep it as 90 degree angle, some devices you have to make it as 90 degrees to get the proper sensitivity, but this device, even with 60 degree angle, which is same as drawing on paper.
You can do art, like you, are doing it on a paper also guys. This is an HD display. 1080P. I wish they have the 4k display for this device price, but it’s what it is, But for a 1080p HD display the colors and the DPI looks very nice for this device. Comparing with the size of the device is look really solid and you guys can go into this xp pen’s website and download the drivers for your device. I already did and installed the device so let’s set up and check the device how it work with photoshop. Once you guys install the application, you can load up the application, and in here you can see you can set up the display settings, and in here you guys can set up where you want the touchscreen to be for an example. If you set up full screen, it will select all your monitors. Basically, you can use this device as you using a mouse. Okay, in our case, we are not going to do that. We are going to select only the monitor 3, which is the display of that device, so we can draw on top of that device. Okay, so select monitor three or if you want to select any other monitor you guys can do here also – and in here you guys can set up the buttons on the pen by default. You have these settings, you can change if you want. let’s, say instead of eraser.
If you want anything else, you can just simply change from here in the bottom. You can check the pressure sensitivity. You can use the tablet to see your pressure sensitivity, i’m pressing lightly. In here, so when i increase my pressure, you can see the pressure sensitivity is increasing in here to get to the last one. You have to press really hard like you are pressing on the paper using a pencil, so it’s really useful when you are drawing sketches and painting on an artwork okay, this is really cool. This level of sensitivity is almost closer to what you get on a paper. Next one you can set up your shortcuts in here, even for the wheel as well, so by default they are already giving you some shortcuts. You guys, if you want, you, can customize this in here. i’m, going to stick to the basic one. Okay, so let’s close this one and open photoshop, all right guys, so we are in the artboard in here, first i’m, going to select a brush in here and let’s apply a red tone for this let’s check out the pressure levels using the paint brush in here. Okay, the first thing: i’m, not going to change anything i’m going to select a very default brush. I will start with a very low pressure line like this i’m, not applying any pressure for this now i’m increasing gradually the pressure level, as you guys can see in here when i increase my pressure level, the brush is getting thicker and also the flow of the Colors are getting more as well.
This is exactly what you expect from a paint brush. It’S look in feel exactly like. You are working on a paper with the wheel in here. You guys can zoom in and zoom out your artwork like this. You can see it’s smoothly, zoomed in and zooming out, and also, if you guys, activate the flow in here for the brush, you can see all the flow also changing according to your pressure, which is what you get from a real brush. Okay and you can set up the size for the pressure also, and you can use the pressure to control the size, opacity and the flow, and with these shortcut buttons in here, you can simply press and use all the features from adobe photoshop, without even going into The photoshop tools, which will save a lot of time while you are drawing artworks, alright guys, so i have been using this device for a month now and after a month of use pros, there are a lot of pros for this device, especially the colors. As i said, the colors are really nice compared to other same level of devices. Xp pen display colors are really nice and the pen itself it’s really easy to use it’s very light and stylish also, and if you guys, use xp pen before their paints are always light, durable and easy to use and uh. Overall, this device is really good for your day to day work and, if you guys are watching my videos recently most of my speed, art videos are done by this device cons, wise there’s, not much cons for this device.
Xp pens are always nice and easy to use, but there’s only one problem i’m facing using this device. So far. Sometimes, when you use the shortcut keys a lot, especially the alt key, to pick colors for color, blending.. or zoom in and out key, it gets stuck after a while and it’s getting very slow. So you have to wait for it to reset, or sometimes even you have to close the photoshop and start restart again to work on it. So this is one issue i’m facing i’m, not sure this issue has to do with the windows or my own applications, which i’m using on top or to do with the xp pen itself. When i search internet there’s not much complaints about it so i’m, not sure it’s have to do with me or it’s a common problem other than that this device is very easy to use and very nice in colors and very premium build. And if you guys are beginners or a professional users, and if you are looking for a pen display, you guys can give it a try.
