Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Large workspace
The work area of this tablet is 13.8 x 8.6’’, which is huge. This ensures artists have all the space they need to complete their sketch work.
Pro Excellent price for its features
The low price makes this tablet a worthy option for sketchers. It has many features found on high-end tablets, such as a high-accuracy pen or customizable shortcut keys, but for a cheaper price.
Pro Users can save time with Express keys
Placed right on the left side of the screen, there are 12 Express keys for quickly using 12 different commands without the keyboard. This is useful and time saving.
Pro Long battery life
The battery lasts up to 40 hours, and it takes just 6 hours to fully charge it.
Con Lines are not equally smooth on every platform
The Giano Wireless is compatible with both Windows and macOS, but there are performance differences. It shows some shaken lines with the Windows drivers but on Mac OS the input is very smooth and precise. This may be something to consider before investing in this device.
Con Power button sticks out and can be accidentally flipped
When using the Huion Giano, it is too easy to accidentally toggle the switch between on and off by just a light flick of a lever. This makes it really inconvenient. Huion would have made this tablet a lot better by maybe changing that to a small switch on the side or possibly increasing the amount of pressure needed to toggle the lever between on and off. The power switch design comes as a downfall of an otherwise sleek design. It actually worries the user about storing the tablet, while turned on, in a narrow carrying case, since it's likely it will turn off by accident.
