Prime Day is almost over, but I've just found this massive drawing tablet deal

For months, this drawing tablet has been at the top of our list as the best for most people because it offers such great value. Now it's momentarily even better value because, in a sudden (and very late) lightning Prime Day sale, the Xencelabs Wireless Drawing Tablet Medium bundle is reduced from $359.99 to 287.99 at Amazon US.

This price matches the record low that we saw briefly during Black Friday in November last year, and it's the best price we've seen in 2023 by some way. The only other discount this year was an offer for $310 in February. You'll need to be quick, though. This is a flash deal with limited numbers - you'll also need to take our a free trial of Amazon Prime if you're not a member.

This isn't the flashiest drawing tablet around and it's from a lesser-known brand than the likes of Wacom, but in our review, we found it did everything we wanted from a graphics display of this size, and for a lower price than most of the competition. This price is for a bundle with 2 battery-free pens and shortcut Quick Keys for a smooth workflow. The tablet and pens alone are now $279.99 $223.99 at Amazon US and £249.99 £199.99 at Amazon UK.
