I am looking for some buying information about digital drawing tablets and pens. I would like to purchase an entry level drawing tablet and pen. I totally want the pen to have an eraser end which I have done some initial research and found out not all pens for drawing pads/tablets have an eraser end. I use adobe Illustrator, some Photoshop, for most of my design/graphics work on PC.

I want something inexpensive but again really want it to be portable and the eraser end functionality is a must have. I would like to pay as far under $200 as possible. The research I have done has shown that the ones at a price point under $100 lack the eraser end is barely available (haven’t found one yet) and the wireless factor is available but not with a whole bunch of variety in models available. Important note is that I will be using it with a Windows 10 laptop.

I was going to get the XP-Pen deco 02 graphics tablet ( https://www.amazon.c...e/dp/B07DCS9D9Q ) . The DECO 02 drawing tablet have an eraser at the end of the pen .The stylus supports 8192 levels of pressure sensitivity and the graphics pad has a 10 x 5.63 inch working area .it seems perfect.Any advice for an up and coming artist , good/bad experiences and so on?.

Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.

probably you already have bought the tablet by now and I've came late but I own the XP-Pen star 06 and in my opinion, having the price in mind it is great to start out. It is wireless however it doesn't have the rubber on the back of the pen but you get an easy access to the rubber with the buttons on the pen. From my experience XP is great for those that are starting, being really cheap and having a decent quality which will allow you to try the tablet out, do some cool things with it and if in the end you don't like to use a tablet at least you haven't wasted that much money, however it isn not the tablet for your life.

I don't know why  you "need" an eraser end, you can easily switch to the eraser tool, or set up  a hot key on  your tablet or keyboard to  quickly switch between your current tool and eraser,  with that  said, I use an Intuos(Wacom),  but I have tested Monoprice before and they  are incredibly cheap  and well  made/designed.  If I were starting out today and buying a new tablet I would definitely skip  Wacom and go  with  Monoprice.  They have all  the needed features, and are much-much-much  cheaper($50 range),  and it comes with  an eraser.

Absolutely, you can also use the eraser tool in Photoshop. Actually, my friend recommends me Huion, so I give up XP-pen. I bought Huion graphics tablet Q620M under $100, which has two express keys on the digital pen to set it as you like. Q620M comes with 8192 levels of pressure sensitivity and 266PPS. Moreover, I can use dial function to adjust brush size, choose color and scroll through the pages. I honestly suggest it to multiple other people as well who've been looking into an entry-level drawing tablet. Huion is a fantastic option for beginners and professionals.
