We already had Wacom Bamboo driver installed in our laptop which we had to remove before, which for the drivers of Huion H610 Pro V2 to actually work. Also, according to their User Guide if there are other Huion drivers already installed on the laptop or desktop, they will influence with the current drivers. This might be an annoying issue for those who own two or more drawing tablets.
The driver installation process is quite fast. After installing the drivers, the shortcut keys on the tablet can be customized according to needs.
Before drawing, we highly recommend you put on the glove which you can find in the package. It will make the hand movements on the tablet much smoother.
The software we tested here is SAI2 and the laptop we used is Microsoft Surface Laptop.
Honestly, the drawing experience was great. The very-high pressure sensitivity of the H610 Pro V2 provides a rich drawing experience closer to a real pen and sheet. With different pressure on the pen, strokes of different thickness can be achieved.
However, we also noticed a problem that is the tablet or pen resistance is a little bit too small. For someone who have get used to high resistance, he/she may need more time to get used to it, or, actually, they can buy a particular film to increase the resistance.
The shortcut keys on the tablet are very convenient. From top to the bottom, they are undo, eraser, pencil, zoom in, zoom out, enlarge brush, narrow brush.
The shortcut keys have generally contained all the frequently used keys. However, the shortcut keys are a little bit hard to click, comparing to the laptop keyboard. So you may need some time to get used to the new touch.
Here is what we draw by using this tablet.
