Our aim is to help you make a well informed and worry-free buying decision for a pen display tablet product. Hopefully you arrived here early in your search because we know how difficult it can be searching for the right product at the right price.
As a father and son team we have five years of insider experience supplying and supporting more than one thousand buyers of pen display tablet products, and we have now turned our experience to helping others find the ideal tablet for their needs. But please don’t worry because we are completely impartial and no longer affiliated with any brand.
We’d like you to know that if you do make a purchase after clicking through an offer on our site then we will earn a referral commission, but importantly you will not pay any extra for the product. So please do click through, and then return here to review the product you purchased for the benefit of others.
We aim to list all current models of every brand of pen display tablet available in the international market. To be classed as pen display tablets, some products require additional accessories, such as the Apple Pencil and Microsoft Surface Pen. Pen display tablet accessories, including stands, pens and remotes are also be listed here. If you are aware of any brands or current models that we have not yet listed then please do let us know.
To provide you with meaningful product comparisons we are continually developing an up-to-date repository of technical specifications, which we attempt to verify directly with the respective manufacturers. However, please be aware that we cannot guarantee the accuracy of these specifications, and that all variants of each model may not be included or accurate.
Rather than repeating consumer and expert reviews of each product, we provide you with our unbiased concise review and ratings based on four criteria: Build Quality, Performance, Service/Support, and Value for Money. Our reviews and ratings are a best attempt to aggregate recent trusted consumer feedback from online marketplaces.
The overall rating displayed for each product is derived from the average of our score and any user scores, so the site becomes more authoritative as more reviews and ratings are posted.
Please be aware that consumer reviews can be tainted by poor after sales service and technical support rendered by certain suppliers. Our own reviews are sensitive to this critical factor in the buying decision, and we always try to provide you with offers from reputable suppliers.
Thank you for your visit and we hope that you will easily find the model you are looking for, and that you will remember to come back and post your review as this will help us to help others like you.

Essentially a pen display tablet, like a classic graphics tablet, is a computer input device used in conjunction with software for painting, drawing, photo editing, etc. However, there is a distinct difference because the surface of a pen display tablet that you draw on with a stylus (pen) is actually a computer monitor.
Using a classic graphics tablet is similar to using a mouse because your eye is on the monitor while your hand is working somewhere else. You will appreciate the difficulty here if you have ever tried drawing your signature with a mouse, whereas, the pen display tablet allows you to draw instinctively with natural eye-hand coordination. For this reason the pen display tablet is now essential for creative work in almost any field.
Typically a pen display tablet is a peripheral device connected to a separate computer, however, pen display tablets are now often integrated with a computer. And pen input is now frequently augmented by touch features in many models.
We will refer to four broad types of pen display tablets:
- Pen Displays
- Pen & Touch Displays
- Pen Computers
- Pen & Touch Computers
Although regular tablets and tablet computers can be used for drawing with various types of styluses, we will not consider these devices as pen display tablets as they are not specifically designed or optimized for drawing with a pen. However, we will include certain tablets and tablet computers designed to work with dedicated graphics pens.
The pen display tablet is now an essential element in the digital workflow of creatives, such as content developers, designers and artists, expanding their creative productivity in applications from movie production, industrial design, fine art, architecture, graphic design, illustration, 3D design and modelling, photography, animation, and games production to any creative hobby or interest.
Pen display tablets may be called by many different names, including pen monitors, pen displays, interactive pen displays, creative pen displays, pen tablet monitors, LCD pen displays, LCD graphics tablets, tablet monitors, graphic monitors, pen digitizer tablet monitors, tablet displays, and graphics tablet monitors.
