The Huion H950P was once the second one pill launched by means of Huion with a battery-free pen, and is the larger model of the Huion H640P. It was once in fact launched a complete yr in the past close to the tip of 2017, however Huion didn’t in point of fact advertise that a lot so it didn’t obtain very a lot consideration.
It additionally took round part a yr after release for it to develop into to be had on common on-line retail outlets like Amazon, so it’s conceivable folks weren’t concerned with purchasing it because of the prime transport value concerned with purchasing it on Huion’s web page.
The explanation why I made up our minds to shop for it and evaluate it now could be as a result of I may now not get an excellent clutch on how just right it was once in accordance with the evaluations and feedback it had. Amazon evaluations are extraordinarily certain, while the homeowners of the H950P which I spoke to had been experiencing the similar problems which I famous on my H640P.
With this being the case, I couldn’t counsel it with a bit of luck regardless of it being a pleasing having a look pill in accordance with its paper specifications and value.
The conclusion I’ve arrived at is that the Huion H950P is a tight pill, however provided that you happily obtain a fashion from a more recent batch, however I communicate in additional element about that during my different put up: Why I don’t counsel the Huion H640P/H950P
The above put up simplest talks in regards to the problems and dangers of having the Huion H950P. My evaluate underneath is extra in regards to the total high quality of the one pill I gained.
Anyways, onto the evaluate.

-If there have been no higher drugs for a similar or equivalent worth, I’d most probably counsel this as it’s somewhat just right apart from the extraordinary quantities of line wobble.
However, there are drugs that are the similar high quality, however can draw a lot straighter traces for a rather equivalent worth, so there’s in point of fact no reason why to even imagine this one.
I give an explanation for intimately why I don’t counsel this pill on this put up: Why I don’t counsel the Huion H640P/H950P
However, the quick model is that this is a “dangerous” pill.
It’s conceivable that you are going to get a model with those problems: Non-linear pen drive, unhealthy click on sensitivity, and very wobbly sluggish traces. The first two problems rely on whether or not you get an H950P from an previous or new manufacturing batch, however the pill can have the wobbly sluggish line challenge evidently both means.
Basically, regardless of how fortunate you might be, you might be getting a less than perfect pill.
I do know for a indisputable fact that when you pay 20 USD extra to get the Huion H1060P, you’ll get a pill without any of those problems, so I see completely no level in cheaping out and taking the danger with the H950P.

This pill has a easy design with the pill floor masking many of the entrance of the pill. The pill itself isn’t too giant, so it should not have any issues becoming into maximum sizes of luggage.
Despite being so skinny, there’s virtually no flex in any respect when doing a easy twist check by means of gripping each ends of the pill and twisting.
The floor of the pill has a somewhat clean end, even supposing it does have somewhat of texture. It would possibly take somewhat of time to get used to when you’re used to rougher textures, however it’s nice while you’re used to it.
One factor you will have to do in an instant with this pill is take a microfiber fabric and frivolously blank the outside of the pill earlier than drawing. There was once somewhat of a scratchy really feel to the outside earlier than I wiped it off as soon as, so I counsel that you just do the similar earlier than beginning to attract on it.
The again of the pill has the standard data decal and 4 rubber toes. The rubber toes do a somewhat just right activity of retaining the pill in position except they’re extraordinarily dusty.
The back and front fringe of the pill have a somewhat curved, however most commonly unaltered form. Since it’s moderately rounded, it received’t dig into your wrist too challenging whilst drawing.
The shortcut keys in this pill are really nice to make use of. They are tactile and provides a pleasing however now not too loud click on.
If I had been to nitpick, I’d say they will have to have made the bumps other at the buttons beside each and every different so you’ll inform which one is which, as an alternative of the use of the very same dot on each. For example, use one line and one dot as an alternative.
Again, only a nitpick. The buttons themselves really feel improbable to press.
The micro-USB port at the pill isn’t focused, and is nearer to the highest edge. The integrated micro-USB cable is an L-shaped cable.
The pill plugs right into a USB type-A port for your laptop.
There is a bodily transfer at the reverse aspect of the pill which lets you toggle whether or not the shortcut keys are on or off.
This can also be helpful if you wish to disable expresskeys with out going throughout the drivers to take action, however I in my opinion don’t see many use instances for this.
The Huion H950P makes use of the similar PW100 battery-free pen as a couple of in their different drugs. It has a large semi-soft/semi-hard rubber grip which is somewhat great to carry and use. It has a tight weight regardless of being a battery-free pen that are infamous for being gentle because of now not having a battery inside of.
Holding this pen could be very at ease and I don’t have any court cases about it.
The buttons are most commonly flush with the outside of the pen, however they’re really easy to search out and use with out having a look because of the variation in really feel of the rubber grip and plastic buttons.
The most sensible of the pen does now not having anything else.
The pen stand is a small cone which helps you to stand the pen upright or sideways on most sensible of it.
The backside of the pen stand is solely plastic, so it is going to slide on challenging surfaces. With that stated, it does now not in fact slide that a lot although so there shouldn’t be any issues the place it is going to simply run clear of you.
The inside the pen stand is the place the substitute pen nibs are. The pen nib remover is constructed into the ground of the stand with the directions on how you can use it engraved into the plastic at the backside. But for individuals who don’t perceive the photographs, you stick your pen nib into the outlet, lever it to the aspect somewhat, and pull the nib out. I counsel now not doing this except it’s important to since this kind of pen nib remover is understood to scratch the aspect of the pen nib when you lever it too challenging.
The pill drivers are extraordinarily simple to put in. You don’t even wish to have your pill plugged in to put in them! Just move obtain the most recent model from huion.com and take away all different pill drivers you have got for your laptop earlier than putting in it.
Once you’ve put in the motive force, the icon presentations up to your taskbar, and the motive force additionally creates a shortcut for your desktop so that you don’t have to head on the lookout for it to your apps.
Although the installer doesn’t urged you to restart your laptop after it finishes, I wholeheartedly suggesting restarting your laptop anyhow to permit Windows to correctly replace the recordsdata vital for the motive force to run easily.
In the motive force, you’ll configure your pill expresskeys, pen buttons, pen drive curve, and paintings space. There’s additionally an method to save other profiles, even supposing the save and open buttons are named somewhat ambiguously (they’re the import config and export config buttons within the “About” phase).
If you spot a “Require Admin” button alongside the ground of the motive force while you first run it, click on it to offer your driving force correct administrator privileges in order that it will possibly make adjustments to gadget recordsdata when vital. However, I’ve now not had issues operating the drivers with out clicking it so I’m now not certain what it adjustments.
The Press Keys tab lets you customise the purposes mapped in your expresskeys. As you’ll see above, the hotkeys menu has keyboard shortcuts, pen clicks, and a few “transfer” purposes to be had. The drop down menu for the keyboard shortcuts has each keyboard key that I will be able to recall to mind.
The latest Huion drivers now comprises mouse left double click on as an possibility. A small addition, however one that has been requested for somewhat somewhat.
The Digital Pen tab lets you customise the pen buttons and the pen drive curve. The pen buttons have an identical quantity of configuration because the expresskeys.
Usually it is very important uncheck the “Enable Windows Ink” method to save you Windows Ink from messing together with your drawing. That stated, some techniques akin to Photoshop most often don’t paintings if it isn’t grew to become on, so play with that possibility as you spot have compatibility.

Pick your observe from the drop down menu, then click on the Full Area button, after which click on the Screen Ratio button to correctly modify your pill space to compare your observe.

This pill gave me a somewhat just right drawing revel in total. I didn’t have any issues the use of it, and I stopped my drawing and trying out somewhat merely with out operating into any giant problems. It’s in point of fact a disgrace that this pill has such unhealthy line wobble when the entirety else about it’s in fact somewhat improbable.
I simplest actually check my drugs on Clip Studio Paint as a result of that’s all I take advantage of. You will have to touch Huion toughen at once if you wish to know if the pill is suitable with the drawing program you employ, however maximum main drawing techniques will have to be suitable. Their buyer toughen may be very type so there’s no wish to be terrified of contacting them at once.
The stroke keep watch over in this pill is somewhat just right and it tapers smartly with brief and lengthy strokes.
I’ve discovered that XP-Pen drivers have extra customizability relating to their pen drive curve, however I didn’t have any issues of the default pen drive at the Huion. I do hope Huion will imagine together with the customizable pen drive curve of their drivers one day although.
The Huion drivers have a slight little bit of prolong integrated to lend a hand stabilize traces. It’s now not an overly noticeable factor for screen-less drugs (since your pen isn’t above your cursor), however Huion has a tiny bit extra prolong than maximum different drugs I’ve examined.
With that stated, it in point of fact doesn’t have an effect on your artwork negatively in any respect so it’s a complete non-issue.
The Huion H950P has pen tilt capability. I don’t use pen tilt very a lot, however it works as anticipated so far as I will be able to see in Clip Studio Paint.
Honestly, there’s not anything else to mention about it apart from the truth that it really works. I’m now not skilled sufficient at the use of tilt to inform the “high quality” of the lean, however I don’t understand anything else incorrect with it.
Tilt Firmware Update – For folks with a non-tilt H950P
The tilt induction serve as is a upgraded serve as of the instrument. If you order the H950P from our legitimate on-line store, you’ll obtain the upgraded fashion as a way to use this serve as at once. If you order it from different channels like Amazon, or in case you have already owned one H950P, you’ll ship your serial quantity, order quantity and your OS model to [email protected] and they’re going to ship you a firmware improve bundle. Follow their tips to put in it after which you’ll additionally use the lean induction serve as.
The wobble at the sluggish traces achieved in this pill are, somewhat frankly, ridiculous. I’m making an attempt to bear in mind if I’ve examined some other drugs which this ridiculous quantity of wobble, and the one one that involves thoughts is the Huion H640P, this drugs smaller cousin.
The wobbly traces are the principle explanation why I don’t counsel this pill. A drugs major activity is to translate your pen motions correctly to the pc, and this pill completely fails in that regard relating to sluggish traces.
There are different drugs in the similar worth class (such because the Huion H1060P) that have completely no wobble, so I see completely no reason why for any individual to shop for the H950P with this horrid quantity of line wobble.
Like I stated close to the start within the “How just right is that this pill?” phase, the Huion H950P is somewhat just right total when you forget about the road wobble.
Do I like to recommend it with the road wobble? Not in any respect.
This is as a result of I do know that the one step up Huion H1060P has completely no line wobble for simply 20 USD extra, and any individual bearing in mind the Huion H950P will have to in point of fact pay that further 20 USD for the H1060P to get a actually improbable pill throughout, or in finding any other selection if paying extra isn’t an possibility.
