After many hours of researching and many more hesitating, I finally bought a Yiynova MSP19U digitizer display. Suffice to say, I am not disappointed.
While it took a few warm up sketches to get used to the frictionless glass surface, the MSP19U has proven to be more sensitive and more responsive than my Intuos4 tablet. I can get finer lines without reducing the brush size, and there’s less lag when using larger brushes.
If you’ve been sitting on the fence deciding whether or not to pick up a MSP19U, I can assure you it’s well worth it. Now that I don’t have to hit Ctrl+Z every other brush stroke, I was able to draft the above in half the time it would have taken me with my Intuos tablet.
