XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro vs Wacom – which one is worth buying? A 13-inch tablet like the Wacom Cintiq Pro 13 will be much easier to make desk space for. You’ll probably just need to put the Intuos 3 away and that should be almost enough space for the Cintiq Pro 13, plus you will be able to comfortably reach other a 13-inch monitor to type on the keyboard behind it.
On other side, a 22-inch monitor like the XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro takes up a LOT of desk space. If you don’t have much desk space in the first place, you might need to buy a mount or arm to hold up the monitor in a comfortable position to draw on. If you have an L-shaped table layout, then you could put the drawing monitor on the side table, and the main keyboard and computer on the main table, but for a single table it’s hard to imagine where you can put a 22-inch monitor without it getting in the way.
The Wacom Cintiq Pro 13 simply outdoes the XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro in all aspects (aside from the size) because it offers extra features like multi-touch, pen tilt/rotation sensitivity, and I believe it actually comes with a longer warranty (I read the warranty info and the Wacom Cintiq Pro 13 comes with a 2 year warranty, whereas the XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro comes with a 1 year warranty). XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro vs Wacom – which one is worth buying?
The whole point of Wacom alternatives at this point and time is to offer tablets for less than 1000 USD for people who cannot afford the lowest Wacom Cintiq but still want a drawing monitor. The XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro is too close to the price of the Wacom Cintiq Pro 13 to really be considered unless you absolutely don’t want to settle with a smaller 13-inch monitor and want a larger 22-inch monitor instead.

Basically I just wanted to share my experience from this huge upgrade and it would be cool to hear about your experiences for those who had an opportunity to try a graphic tablet and a pen display monitor tablet , which tool ended up being better for you?
