Xp pen Deco-03
I have been using this tablet now for about a year and I must say it’s a very durable tablet considering its price tag of £85ish and it hits high with the big boys makes it a no brainer.

the selling point for the Deco-03 was the wireless ability as well as the dial which is assignable, you also have this fine mode which puts up a small square on your screen when editing and then uses the whole surface area of the tablet to control that small space when editing.
The build quality is good, it does have some flex to it which was a bit disappointing as when you push down you feel a bit of movement, this is due to the rubber pads to stop the tablet slipping it only has four, one in each corner leaving the centre free to bounce.

Is it still a great tablet yes, for the price it’s the best for this price range and will do whatever you need it to.
