Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

It has a 10-by-6.25-inch active drawing area, a comfortable pen, and 12 customizable tablet shortcut keys.
1060 PLUS can now use all the 12 physical Expresskeys instead of just 8 on the 1060 PRO, and the included storage has increased to 8GB from 4GB.
Pen comes with 8192 pressure levels for really precise work
The tab comes with a Built-in Card Reader which has an 8GB micro-SD card. This makes it ideally portable and convenient for its users.

What reviewers didn't like

Huion’s driver software doesn’t compare with Wacom’s, the 1060Plus isn’t as customizable as the Intuos tablets, and we found that—despite this model’s 8,192 levels of pressure sensitivity—the slicker tablet surface gave us less control over line weight and opacity when drawing.
Windows will try to install its own version of the tablet driver which will be incompatible with the 1060 PLUS.
Some of the shortcut keys don’t work too well
Seems to have a Photoshop bug that increases reaction time and disables specific functions while working with it
