7P notes: Huion Kamvas Pro 24 4K (GT2401)


I've been very satisfied with this tablet.


This Huion tablet not cheap at about $1300. But sometimes it is on sale at $1000.

Compared to Wacom

  • This is Huion's highest end pen display in 2023.

  • Its competitor is the Wacom Cintiq Pro 27.

  • Let me be clear, the Cintiq Pro 27 is a better tablet. But this tablet delivers a LOT for value for it's price. This Huion tablet delivers 90% of what you need for drawing compared to the Cintiq Pro 27's which costs $3500.

Accuracy - Good. Like all pen displays slightly inaccurate in the edges and corner by a couple of millimeters. More accurate in edges/corners than the Huion Kamvas 22 Plus.

Pointer lag - Normal for a pen display. Slightly more than the Cintiq Pro 27.

Stand - does not come with a stand.

Legs - Has bult-in legs that give it a nice drawing angle.

VESA - is VESA mountable

Anti-glare sparkle - Low. Noticeable if you put your eyes close. At a normal drawing distance my eyes don't pick it up or at least it looks minimal.

Express Keys - It has none. So, I use keyboard shorts with this device: tourbox

Texture - the etched glass provides a nice texture for the pen so that it doesn't feel slippery.

Heat - display stays cool to the touch - maybe sometimes slightly warm. No hot spots.

Scenario - I bought this tablet for digital art, and it works fine for that. I have used it as a secondary display at it works fine for that purpose also. But most of the time I only use it when I want to draw.

How I connect it

There are two cables running from the tablet.

  • display signal and data - I connect it via a single USB-C Thunderbolt 3 cable to one my Surface Pro 8's 2 USB-C Thunderbolt 4 ports.

  • power - I connect it using Huions power adapter to the wall.

Diagonal wobble


Wobble is minor and only noticeable in very slow strokes.

Connection quirks

When connected to my Surface pro 8 via USB-C, when the Surface Pro sleeps, every 20 seconds the Kamvas shows a no signal and power saving message and the Surface Pro keeps playing The "USB device connected" & "USB device disconnected" sounds, this pattern reoccurs every 20 seconds ad infinitum.

To stop it, I simply disconnect the USB-C cable from the Surface Pro.

I'm not sure what the issue is but I suspect its some interaction with the sleep mode of the Surface Pro.

I did not see this in the other devices I tried, so I am not sure how prevalant it is.

Once the Surface Pro is awake, everything works normally.
