I do like the tablet and the packaging for a low cost item is superb. In terms of functionality, it did not work right off the bat. I skipped the USB stick drivers and went to the website, and downloaded the latest and greatest (Rel 07/04/17)....and they didn't work. I use this primarily for photography (Lightroom and Photoshop, and some Illustrator), and could not draw a curve for anything....it only translated my movement to a starting point and end point, and line in between. I will say that the button assignment worked much better on the new driver than the one included in the USB Stick. I then removed the drivers, and installed the ones on the USB stick, and everything worked as expected.
- Value!!! Can't beat this value for a medium wireless tablet.
- Easily configurable
- Wheel works great from brush size adjustments.
- Smooth once properly configured for my needs
- Wireless is kind of flaky...i've had a couple instances where the wireless connection dropped off. (the star loss comes from here)
- Button configuration on current driver is not optimal (Rel 05/17/17 ).
- Pen is light for my liking; much lighter than the Wacom Draw tablet it's replacing.(but I am a writing tool snob, so I won't ding here too much).
- Not the smoothest lines...not an issue for me, but for someone drawing on the Adobe suite, It may be an issue.
Overall, I would recommend the tablet to anyone on a budget. I am looking forward to new drivers for this tablet to really unlock it's potential.
UPDATE 3/18/2018: Latest driver update fixes translation issues with the control panel as well as improving the functionality of the wheel. Still haven't had any problems, even after 7 months of hard use.
My workhorse of an Intuos5 broke at an awkward time when I couldn't afford a Wacom replacement and I needed a tablet to work; after some desperate searching I found the Star06. I was skeptical of the price, but decided to try it regardless. The wheel was a major selling point for me, as I used it heavily on my previous tablet both for brush size and zoom.
After some minor frustration with drivers and getting pressure to work--restarting my machine with the tablet plugged in did the trick, once the default drivers were installed--I found the Star06 to be perfect for my purposes. The wireless functionality works great and the tablet can hold a charge for long while. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable graphics tablet.
I'm a freelance artist who uses her tablet for sketching/drawing/painting up to ten hours a day, and after using the Star06 for a couple weeks I might even go as far as to say I prefer it to my old Intous5. I certainly have fewer sporadic driver issues now, though I do miss having an eraser.
vvv No longer having this issue with the latest driver update! vvv
I'm using Windows 10 with a single monitor, and so far I've found everything to work perfectly in Clip Studio Paint, Krita, Paint Tool Sai, and Photoshop CS6, though CS6 suffers a bit due to the lack of a gyro.
I like the small diameter and lightweight feel of the pen. Very similar to the Wacom Bamboo pen. I really don't like the large bulky pointed tip of the newer Wacom tablets. BUT, the tip on this is very wobbly. When I'm on the left edge of the tablet and press to click, the tip moves sideways due to the angle of my wrist, resulting in very inaccurate clicks on the left edge of the screen (click and it jumps left, registering the click a very noticable distance from where I actually clicked). This is a big issue, as many Adobe programs have very small tools and icons on the left side of the screen. Maybe this is just an issue with the pen I got and others are better. Replacement pens are $15 it looks like, which is a good deal. Extra nibs are included in the base that doubles as a nip-removal tool.
The shortcut buttons and wheel on this tablet sounded useful, but you can only choose from specific functions. I want the wheel to be able to scroll or page down in a browser (as my Wacom Bamboo does), but it can't do it. The scroll function I can choose from doesn't seem to work.
The tablet body is nice and compact, with a metal surface. But there is a slight raised lip around the outside. I've found I need to prop up the back of the tablet and raise my chair up so that my elbow is higher up to comfortably use the tablet. Never noticed such an issue with any Wacom tablet due to their smooth inclined lip and slightly angled surface.
Software/driver-wise - the tablet worked immediately in Windows 10 even without drivers, and no more issues with erratic clicking or flat out unusability in web browsers like my old Wacoms! So I can do my job again which is great. With the driver and software installed I've found a few things missing I expected to see, like being able to have one of the pen side buttons do double-clicking, and having more control over the proportions of the tablet surface for dual-screens. I I seem to have to tell it to recognize both of my monitors every time I start up, as it wants to only operate on one of the monitors by default.
All in all I'd say this is just "OK". It has some issues the casual user probably wouldn't notice, but I will be using this every day all day. I wish it was better and will probably try another tablet or 2.
