As a graphic artist, I am familiar with digital graphics tablets. Most digital artists are familiar with Wacom products, but they tend to be very pricey. The price point of a tablet has a bit of “snob” factor to it, as professional tablets start around $350 and “lesser” entry-level tablets can be had for under $100. When I saw the Adesso CyberTablet 6400, I really didn’t have a lot of high hopes, given its $70 price point.
I was soon flogging myself for having such negative thoughts, because the tablet ended up having the same smooth operation and functionality as one of my entry-level Wacom tablets.”

A tablet at 20% of the price?
A basic Wacom tablet will set you back over $350, so can a $70 tablet actually be of any use to anyone? That is exactly what OCMODSHOP decided to find out when they picked up the Adesso CyberTablet 6400. You get a a scroll mouse and a 6″ x 4″ work space along with a wireless pen that boasts 512 different pressure levels and even sports two mouse buttons so you don’t need to switch back and forth between peripherals. The only real drawback they found throughout was the necessity of batteries, something Wacom users don’t have to worry about.
