XP-PEN Deco 02 Pen Tablet with P06 Passive Pen 10 x 5.63 Inch Working Area Graphic Drawing Tablet
By Xbolt

XP-PEN Deco 2 Graphic Tablet is perfect for anyone who likes to combine technology and art. This graphic drawing tablet has a large 10 x 5.63 inch working area, offering you enough space to draw and create with ease. The Deco 2 is only 9mm thick, allowing for easy portability and it doesn’t take up too much space.

The XP-PEN Deco 2 is not a standalone drawing pad, so it must be connected to a device to work. The Deco 2 supports Windows 10/8/7, Mac OS X 10.10 and above. It’s compatible with many major designer software such as Photoshop, Painter, Illustrator, Clip Studio, Manga Studio, Windows Paint 3D, Gimp, and more.

This graphic tablet is a highly ergonomic and convenient drawing surface for both right hand users and left hand users. Six round, customizable shortcut keys fit easily to your finger tip. The silver roller wheel with mirror plating is designed to streamline your work flow and operate non-intrusively.

The P06 passive pen doesn’t need a battery or charging, and it has a hexagonal design for a traditional pencil-like feel. Specially designed for the Deco 2, it delivers fast and fluid performance with a comfortable grip, making lines flow smoother so you can draw neatly with more accuracy. There’s even an eraser on the end!

The XP-PEN Deco 2 is made in Japan just like the Wacom tablet that professionals use, but for sale at a much lower cost. Perfect for kids, teens, and beginners or advanced digital artists for drawing, painting and sketching as well as animation, photo-editing, 3D modeling, web comics, and other design projects. It’s also useful for online teaching / e-learning / remote work. 

I got the XP-PEN Deco 2 graphic tablet last Christmas. (It’s this one here on Amazon.) It’s basically just plug and play so I was able to start using it right away, and I’ve been using it regularly ever since. It works great! My drawings went from looking like this…
