So now there is a new player on the market and for a bare-bones, nothing-too-fancy pen tablet. The Voila L by Veikk is a terric deal at under $50.00. Let’s have a closer look!

Refreshingly no batteries are required at all. No charging!
You simply connect the pen tablet to your computer with the included USB-C cable. Quick and Simple
Once I programmed my pen and tablet, it was super intuitive to use. The pen feels comfortable and the matte surface feels terri c to work with. Very precise.
Tip: Use some reusable tape and write what you have programmed the buttons for and stick on the buttons or attach a sticky note to your PC until you remember them all.
The Voila is surprisingly good for only $44.99. Once installed and set up, it is super easy to use. Has nice solid uid movement and details. The buttons and dials are basic, but honestly, you don’t need too many to work well. I was impressed by the build quality and the performance.
