XP-Pen Deco MW Pen Tablet Review: An affordable but capable entry-level drawing tablet

Welcome to our XP-Pen Deco MW pen tablet review. XP-Pen is a smaller name on the drawing tablet scene – they offer more affordable products than bigger brands like Wacom and Cintiq, so it can be easy to question the quality. However, we feature their products frequently, and the lower price point makes them a great entry-level tablet for amateurs and younger artists.

As a digital artist, I’ve used both the previously mentioned Wacom and Cintiq, but had never dabbled in the XP-Pen brand. I was skeptical about how this would measure up to my Wacom tablet, but I will happily say I was pleasantly surprised and now find myself reaching for my XP-Pen Deco MW tablet over my older Wacom model. While I definitely wouldn’t consider it a high-end tool for full-time digital art, it’s a fantastic addition to my desktop setup, and the slim, compact design makes it easy to store. But it’s good enough to make it one of the best drawing tablets out there (opens in a new tab) out there? Let’s find out.

XP-Pen Deco MW Review: Price

Costing $69.99 / £69.99, the XP-Pen Deco MW is a mid-range tablet when it comes to cost versus size. There are plenty of good affordable tablets on the market now that can start as low as $40/£40, so the competition is very stiff when it comes to choosing a cheaper yet good quality tablet.

Overall, I find the $69.99 / £69.99 price to be a reasonable asking for the XP-Pen Deco MW as it’s a fantastic entry-level tablet that’s easy to set up and a pleasure to use, especially when there are frequent discounts from various dealers on the device.
