Wacom One

Creative Pen Display
Review by Gilmar Smith

Back in January, Wacom introduced its entry-level creative pen
display, the Wacom One. First, let me clarify that the Wacom
One is a pen display; there’s no built-in computer. The tablet
needs to be plugged into a computer, and it’s also compatible
with android devices. (I didn’t test this last feature because
I don’t own an Android device.) I’ve been testing a unit for
about a month now; but before I tell you my thoughts about it,
let me get into the specs.
The Wacom One weighs 1kg (2.2 lbs) and its screen is 13.3"
(measured diagonally). It has a Color Gamut ratio of NTSC 72%
(CIE1931) (typ), a display resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, and 8-bit
color depth. The screen has an anti-glare film, and the tablet
comes with built-in, fold-out legs. It’s compatible with Windows 7
and later, Android, and Mac OS 10.13 and later. As for hardware
requirements, you need an HDMI port and a standard USB-A port.
The new pen, named the Wacom One Pen (of course), is
pressure-sensitive with 4,096 pressure levels. It’s also cordless
and battery-free.
So, here’s what I think about the Wacom One: Over the years,
I’ve heard people saying that it takes some time to adjust to editing
