Quick Keys Specifications
What’s in the box?
The box contains the tablet, Quick Keys, a medium black drawing glove, and a pen case that contains two digital pens, a dongle, an adapter, nibs, nib extractor, cables and a carry case.
A Closer Look
The tablet itself is very slim and has a beautiful matt finish, along with 3 fully customisable buttons on the top of the tablet itself, which are very easy to use.
The tablet is a really good size for drawing with and the available drawing area is shown by four coloured corners. The colours can be changed to something with you prefer using the app.
When you are ready to first use the kit, just insert the dongle into your computer, download and install both the driver and the app, and then go through the setup and configuration.
The app can be used to for a variety of configuration changes, including changing the orientation of the quick keys, the colours of lights, what the buttons do, the display and so much more. The app itself is very easy to use. It’s worth spending some time going through every option to make sure you have configured your set up just how you want it.
The app shows the battery life for both the tablet and the quick keys. Fully charged, which takes around 2 1/2 hours to charge, will give you around 16 hours of usage – so thats plenty!
The tablet can be used wirelessly (with the supplied dongle) or wired (with the supplied cable). The choice is yours, and will also depend on how far away the computer is from the tablet – the further away (when using wireless), the more chance you have a experiencing a little lag.
The pen case contains 2 different pens of differing thickness, along with 10 different nibs, the dongle, and adapter and a nib extractor. The case is very well put together and keeps the pens and all the rest of the contents neatly together and secure. The back of each pen can be used as an eraser, so using the pens really do feel comfortable and familiar. The pens don’t contain a battery, they use electro magnetic resonance so you don’t have to worry about keeping them charged – you can just used them!
There is a glove in the box that can be used to help with keeping your hand comfortable when using the tablet – and the tablet itself has a very comfortable wrist guard, so even if you are using it for hours at a time, you shouldn’t feel uncomfortable.
Last but not least, there is a carry case that has pockets for all the different parts of the bundle. They all fit really well and they are very well protected.
Overall this is a really great package – it’s very comfortable to use and great to draw with, the build quality is great and is fully customisable. If you are looking for a fantastic drawing tablet, then look no further.
