Build and Design
GAOMON tablets are a nice alternative to other tablets that have been on the market for a longer period.
This is courtesy of the budget-friendly price, which many would assume means the tablet is built with cheap non-durable material. However, GAOMON tablets are well built to fit both the look and durability.
The PD2200 panel measures 20.55 by 12.44 by 3.6 inches offering a screen diagonal size of 21.5-inch. Although this may be quite large for mobility and portability, the working area is enormous, and you will enjoy the huge visual.
On both sides of the screen are touch buttons with the five on the right consisting of the Start Button, Menu, 2 buttons to increase and decrease brightness, and an Auto button.
On the left side, you are provided with 8 customizable keys, enhancing your shortcut habits for a more efficient work rate.
When it comes to durability, the PD2200 is built with a GMS01 panel made from a long-lasting aluminum alloy. when combined with quality internal materials the tablet serves you for a long period.
GAOMON PD2200 Pen
Drawing sketches and designs with the GAOMON PD2200 is quite lovely courtesy of the tablet’s quality stylus and touchscreen.
The tablet comes with a quality AP32 stylus, offering a quality 8192 level of pen pressure sensitivity level. By this you achieve precise and accurate strokes, making the experience natural and realistic.
Additionally, the AP32 harbors a market highest pen resolution of 5080 LPI, and when combined with a 266 PPI response rate and the screen’s 25MS response time, the stylus is detected fast enough for an even better drawing experience.
An even better tilt function support brings your shading and brush game to life, enhancing your designs to the max.
Last but not least, the pen embeds EMR technology, making the stylus both lightweight and battery-free.
Screen and Display
Every artist requires a quality visual as they work on their designs, ensuring each color is presented well and each stroke is clear and accurate.
This is only achievable by having an HD display and the PD2200 focuses on helping the user achieve just that. Quality 1920 by 1080 pixels of screen resolution enhances your visuals and when combined with a color gamut of 92% NTSC, the colors are rich and accurate.
Moreover, the colors are made better by the tablet detecting 16.7 million colors and a contrast ratio of 1000:1.
The 21.5-inch tablet then offers you a 178-degree viewing angle, enabling you to see every detail at even not-so-direct angles.
Several technologies further help the visuals become better with the Full Laminated screen technology eliminating parallax, while the Anti-glare coating reduces reflection.
All this combines to expose you to an authentic and natural visual effect.
Connection and Compatibility
Since the PD2200 is not a standalone tablet, a computer connection is compulsory and is made possible by a USB connection. If you prefer to connect the tablet with an external display, you can connect it using an HDMI cable.
What operating system is compatible with the GAOMON PD2200? The PD2200 is compatible with both Windows and macOS as long as the Windows OS is 7 and above, while MacOS is 10.12 and above.
The GAOMON PD2200 is connected to an adjustable stand that is also moveable on the base, achieving ideal angles ranging from 15 degrees to 85 degrees for a more comfortable work setting.
The PD2200 is a quality tablet, built for artists at any stage of their career. It is further made available at a budget-friendly price when compared to its competitor Wacom Cintiq 22 but at the same price range as Huion’s Kamvas 22.
When you take a look at the features of the two companies in comparison to the GAOMON PD2200, you will conclude that each company had a different approach with every tablet winning in one way or another.
To keep it short, the Wacom Cintiq 22 wins the stylus features hand down, not only because of their market-best pen production reputation but also the fact that it is the Wacom Pro Pen 2 we are talking about.
As for the Huion Kamvas 22, the display is what blows me away. Quality 120% sRGB color gamut combined with other technologies allows us to consider it a winner in screen features.
Additionally, the Huion Kamvas 22 is quite budget-friendly, though the PD2200 falls under the same price range.
What you get from GAOMON PD2200 is a compact tablet with well-balanced features with a price tag that will save you some money.
