HUION Inspiroy H580X Drawing Tablet Review
To use this tablet with a computer, you download the driver, which enables you to interface with software like Microsoft Office (PowerPoint, for example), and program the buttons on the tablet. To use with a phone, you download the Huion sketch app. The tablet is powered via the same USB cable that carries the data to your device. To use this tablet with a phone, you will need a phone with a USB C port or a USB C to micro adapter (included).
I like the performance of this tablet for teaching. The tablet is very easy and intuitive to use, and writing on it is much easier than writing on a blackboard. It pairs very well with PowerPoint and Zoom for online teaching. It also works well with PowerPoint and projectors for hybrid classes.
The small 8”x5” format is great for portability, and I find the screen provides all the room I need for notations. It’s also fun to use this tablet for artwork. It’s great for making sketches for cutting on my Cricut machine.
Overall, the HUION Inspiroy H580X Drawing Tablet is a well made, easy to use graphics tablet.
