With the reveal of the new Xencelabs Pen Display 24 Studio Series artists, designers and creatives finally have a real alternative to Wacom. This new drawing display features some unique real-world design decisions that will give digital artists a real choice when it comes to a new large-screen pen display.

Xencelabs drawing tablets are now some of the best around, you can read my thoughts in my recent Pen Tablet Small review and our guide to the best drawing tablets. Overall, I think the Xencelabs Pen Tablet Medium bundle is the best value drawing tablet you can get right now.
