The Huion Kamvas Pro 24 is one of the latest offerings from this popular drawing tablet manufacturer, adding to the catalog of models designed for professional artists on a budget. Despite what the name leads us to believe, it is actually a tablet with a 23.8-inch drawing surface, QHD resolution, 178 ° viewing angle, and etched anti-glare glass. It offers 20 programmable keys, two touch bars, and updated PenTech 3.0 technology that ensures an accurate drawing experience, earning our attention today.
A slightly more affordable but equally respectable alternative is the HUION Kamvas Pro 22 with its 21.5-inch screen highly recommended for professionals.

A premium, but bulky design
The construction of the entire Huion Kamvas 24 series is solid, minimalist and pleasing to the eye. The base is well designed and robust, allowing viewing angles between 20 ° and 80 ° degrees with the lift of a lever. Combined with the rubber feet at the bottom of the tablet, the 24 tablet can rest securely on a desk of any material.
However, it is definitely a permanent solution to place on the desk, since with the stand it weighs more than 5kg and its dimensions make it a very bulky package to carry in your bag.
This model gives us 20 programmable keys to access the functions that suit us, change screens or open applications quickly. The possibilities are further expanded when you consider that there is a touch bar on each side of the device.
To complement the offer, a support of adjustable desk ST100 allows us to adjust the screen in angle from 20 ° to 80 ° degrees, so it will be easy to find an optimal angle to start drawing.
The main bet consists of a 23.8-inch diagonal IPS panel exhibiting a 2,560 x 1,440 QHD resolution pixels, providing a sharp and detailed image, not to mention 120% sRGB color gamut coverage.
This screen is equipped with a chemically etched anti-glare glass, which makes the screen can virtually eliminate reflections and reduce eyestrain. The etched surface can also provide a matte finish and a paper-like texture. Plus, it features fully laminated technology to improve visual quality, eliminate parallax, and increase durability.
When it comes to real-world performance, the Huion Kamvas Pro 24 series really shines when it comes to using Photoshop and digital painting. This works well with different types of brush and its QHD screen stands out for its fine details where precision is crucial, but it also performs well in less pressure-sensitive contexts, such as vector programs. As if that were not enough, the pressure of the line adjusts smoothly and without any visible graduation.
An improved digital pen
For its part, the Huion PW517 pen included with the tablets of this family is really another success. He himself has 8192 levels of pressure sensitivity and 5080LPI resolutionas well as using electromagnetic resonance for power, instead of the cumbersome and easy-to-lose charging cables. Lastly, PenTech 3.0 technology handles pressure and line input better, in theory at least.
The textured rubber surface of the ballpoint pen makes it comfortable to use, to place the cherry on the cake, works at a distance of up to 10mm from the screen surface and supports a 60 ° tilt, which makes the process of drawing feel more natural.
The pen also comes with a large number of replacement tips (10), so if you know how to manage them well, you won’t have to buy a replacement for several years. Huion also offers felt tips, but they will need to be purchased separately.
Connectivity and compatibility
Connectivity and compatibility will not be a problem with the Huion Kamvas Pro 24, since it has a port USB 3.0, HDMI and Display Port to connect to other devices as well as a VGA for backward compatibility reasons.
And speaking of compatibility, the tablet gets along well with most drawing programs like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Corel Painter, Paint Tool Sai, GIMP, Krita and more. It is also compatible with Windows 7 and MacOS 10.12 or later.
What we cannot praise so much is Huion’s software, which can be cumbersome to configure, especially on older versions of Windows, such as 7, where some users report problems with the program recognizing the tablet.
