Huion asked me to review the Giano or WH1409 Wireless Graphics Tablet. Just in time as my old Wacom intros was falling apart! I’ve not been paid to make this video, but I do get a small commission if you buy from my Amazon links – but you pay no extra. This helps me to make more videos!
I’d often thought about buying a Huion Tablet, but the battery pen always put me off. I’d always thought it would be heavy… but Huzzah! It’s not! Actually I’d say it is lighter and more comfortable – the Wacom pen is pretty clunky.
The tablet is wireless. There is an 8gb usb disk/stick hidden underneath, which doubles as the wireless dongle. It also has all the driver files and extra manuals saved onto it, so you are ready to load the drivers and get to work.
You charge up the pen and the tablet with usb cables and the tablet can also work independently as a usb tablet. The wireless charge gives you about 40 hours of work time on one charge.
There are assignable keys, but I never use them, as I’m so used the keyboard short cuts. I think most graphic artists are like that.
I never use a mouse. I did a massive animation project once that nearly gave me RSI, I’ve only ever used a tablet and pen since and can work comfortably all day.
If you get mouse strain in your hand, GET A TABLET BEFORE YOU DAMAGE YOuR HANDS!
I’m very happy to recommend this, the build quality is great and it is sooooo much cheaper that the wacom equivalents – across the whole range too.
