XP-Pen G430 Graphics Drawing Tablet Review

The XP-Pen G430 Graphics Drawing Tablet is a compact little drawing tablet that works right out of the box, just plug it in via USB and you’re ready to go!

There are no batteries to install in either the tablet or the pen, the tablet draws power directly from your laptop/PC.  The design is similar to the 2016 Kindle Oasis, a slight bulge to one side with a very flat surface to draw on and it’s available in white or black.

As well as the tablet you get a nice looking pen that is comfortable to hold, some spares for the pen and a getting started quick guide which wasn’t required as this worked as soon as the tablet was plugged in.

The pen and tablet are light and compact, perfect if you want to pop them in a bag to take with you.

XP-Pen-G430

The G430 works well with Windows 10, it was immediately recognised and worked well with I had a play with Fresh Paint, the included drawing software.  Even though it’s a small tablet it is very easy to use and you don’t feel like you’re restricted in movement.

As well as upping your drawing ability to G430 is also designed to be used for a game called OSU!  This isn’t a game I’d heard of or ever played, it’s free so you may as well give it a go and it’s a basic rhythm game involving lots of poking and swiping on screen. Despite being better at the game when playing with G430 rather than with a trackpad or mouse, I was still terrible at the game!

One thing to note is that it isn’t that easy to use in replacement for a mouse on the Windows desktop so this isn’t a complete mouse replacement.

Nice little product, especially if you happen to play OSU!
