The Adesso CyberTablet M14 came packaged with the tablet itself, battery-free stylus, USB cable, pen holder, tablet drivers and tablet documentation.
The setup was fairly easy for this tablet, so I’ll go ahead and get on to the review.
The Adesso CyberTablet M14 came with an active area of 9.5 x 7.3 inches, which means most users will have more than enough room to work with.
The tablet surface scratched very easily since there was no protective cover included with the tablet.
There was also a problem with the tablet going to sleep after only a short amount time of inactivity.
The tablet also took a long time to wake back up after going to sleep, making for a very annoying experience every time the tablet went to sleep.
The hotkeys and scroll wheels included on the tablet were a bit cluttered and hard to figure out.
Even though the setup was a little confusing, once I learned how to work everything on the Adesso CyberTablet M14 the hotkeys and scroll wheels were actually fairly helpful.
This feature ended up being one of the only positives I found with this graphics tablet.
The stylus that came with the Adesso CyberTablet M14 had 1024 levels of pressure, which meant that there was less of a variety when it came to line weights.
There were only occasional problems with lag and jitters, but the jagged lines due to the lower pressure sensitivity levels meant that more detailed drawings with this tablet are not possible.
The stylus was also fairly uncomfortable to hold due to the cheap plastic and “fat” body that did not fit naturally in my hand.
Overall, all these things combine together to form an underwhelming at best and extremely irritating at worse drawing experience.
The stylus also required batteries to operate, which is always an unfortunate thing to hear.
The battery life of the pen was fairly bad, meaning that you’ll have to switch out batteries often to continue using the pen.
Make sure you stock up on batteries before buying this tablet or you won’t be able to use this tablet at all.
The Adesso CyberTablet M14 disappointed me greatly in most of the key aspects I reviewed this tablet on.
The tablet had an active area of 9.5 x 7.3 inches, making a for a larger-than-average drawing space to work with.
However, the tablet surface scratched very easily due to the exclusion of a protective cover for the surface.
A big problem with the Adesso CyberTablet M14 is that the graphics tablet goes to sleep very quickly without interaction and takes a long time to wake up afterwords.
The hotkeys and scroll wheels included on the tablet were initially hard to figure out, but once I did they were actually fairly helpful.
The stylus that came with the Adesso CyberTablet M14 came with 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity, meaning there was less of a variety in line weights when drawing.
The pen was very uncomfortable to work with due to the cheap plastic and “fat” build of the stylus that did not natural contour to my hand.
Another big issue with the stylus is that once you run out of nibs for the pen you will have to buy another pen in order to be more.
The Adesso CyberTablet M14 is a fairly poor choice for a graphics tablet due to it’s multiple flaws. You will have only annoyances working with this tablet.
