Great As A Budget Drawing Option
Reviewed in Australia on 6 November 2020
As I like to take notes on paper, I thought I'd try out a graphics tablet to use alongside apps like OneNote, Keep etc to keep my notes digitized. I also like to sketch up designs & measurements. The unit came within a few days of ordering (Thanks). The packaging is very nice, although maybe a bit overkill considering you'll throw most of it away. Then again, the red box it comes in is pretty sturdy and can be used to store the device when not in use easily.
One thing that drew me to this unit (pun not intended ;)) over other models was the fact it was wireless, with a generous work area. I was a bit confused why this unit has wireless, yet their top of the line unit doesn't and is still corded? Other than the fact the Deco 3 doesn't have the mouse function on the wheel, it's got pretty much the same features as it's big brother with wireless included.
Installing on a windows 10 laptop was a breeze with no issues. Just follow the instructions, download the latest drivers and it guides you though. Even pairing to the 2.4GHz wireless was painless.
Drawing on a graphics tablet does take a bit of getting used to if you've never used one before. However the learning curve isn't steep. Drawing on the unit feels a little slick, but not far removed from using a ball point pen on paper. The limitations I found not with the unit, but using it with "other" software (like Adobe PDF for signing documents). The unit itself worked flawlessly, Adobe - not so much.
I haven't had a lot of time to try it with other software, but it seems to work pretty well with OneNote and Keep. One thing is to keep the app display large and write a little larger so it's more legible. I'd definitely recommend this unit if you don't want cords attached and want a decent size work area with all the bells and whistles.
