I bought a tablet really early on (2-3~ months in), and I found it to be an excellent purchase. Then again, I play osu! everyday for at least 2 hours, so I get plenty of time with it. If you don't believe you will be playing for at least one or two more years, I wouldn't recommend it. Again, as other people say, you don't need a tablet to play well. Many top players use a mouse, and some even use a touchscreen to play high level maps. But if you are set on buying a tablet, I would recommend the CTL480. This is the tablet that most players use at high level. If you need a cheaper option, there always is the osu!tablet or the Huion 420. These three are the most used tablets in osu!, but there are many other options available to you. The only thing you should look out for if you are trying to choose another tablet is latency, as tablets like the CTL490 are known to have latency unplayable with to people used to the above tablets.

As for PP, PP, or Performance Points is gained through passing or "fcing" (full comboing) a map. The higher level/star rating of map you play, the more PP you will get for a play. The easiest ways to get PP are through farm maps such as no title - Reol, MIIRO - AKINO from bless4, MIIRO vs. Ai no Scenario - AKINO from bless4 & CHiCO with HoneyWorks, and many others. The higher accuracy and combo you get, the more PP you will earn. However, as a new player, it isn't recommended to start farming PP. People usually don't start caring about pp until rank 50k to rank 100k (the five digit realm). What you should do as a new player is player harder and harder maps to help you learn how to play the game and then start trying for a higher ranking.

Hope this helps!

EDIT: I forgot about this tablet, the XP-Pen G430. It is similar to the osu!tablet and Huion 420 in size, and is a very recently introduced tablet. You can see high level play with it here.

u/TBoastful · 2 pointsr/osugame

Gaomon s620 is so good actually, I would recommend watching some reviews on it. In fact, there's a fork of hawku drivers for it too, super nice.

edit: for reference Ive used the shit huion garbage with the giant pen, and also the xp pen star g430s which is actually pretty good except for the slippery cheap pen, but the s620 is better than both of these.


However, if you want to splurge and never have to buy a tablet again, This wacom tablet is incredible. Pen is super light, rubber covers the majority of it so it wont slip at all, and you can get better drivers for it. But again, more expensive


hope this helps

u/MuffinAddict0 · 3 pointsr/osugame

Damn, they are different indeed! Had to take a look twice before find difference.

I have the third just like u/VictorIsaev . Love it!

But after year surface is not in good state. This but like 3x times worse. If turns out it feels good for you to drug with lots of pressure (i like it...), it's a greate idea to put any other surface on the top of the tablet. Some ppl use a sheet of paper. I like mouse-pad much more. And there are some special tablet covers as well.

u/skyguardian4 · 1 pointr/osugame

Alright boys, like our OP here, I'm thinking of getting a tablet too, but I've been struggling with what to get. I've heard that the Huion 420 is pretty good for it's price, but I really like the sound of something like the Wacom CTL-480 , I'm totally fine to spend the extra money for it, thoughts??

u/Yetanothaone · 1 pointr/osugame

This should be good. You'll need to get the switches and keycaps but those shouldn't be bad. I'd try and get some help from somewhere like r/mechanicalkeyboards though. I'm not a keyboard expert.

Also, gateron reds are better than cherry reds.

u/Desmond-kun · 2 pointsr/osugame

If I may, I would recommend this tablet. It was my first tablet and it is not only relatively cheap, but pretty good quality as well.

u/Akka94 · 1 pointr/osugame

Hmmm, I've been looking everywhere. Most keypads were out of stock, like 99% of them lol. As someone told you already, you'd better check Massdrop every once in a while to see if any keypad goes on sale, even though they are pretty rare. Or you could even end up getting a cheap mechanical keyboard! Anyways, my only find worth mentioning was this Filco. It's only Cherry MX Browns, though.

Edit: Found two keypads that were previously on sale on Massdrop - Leopold and [Keycool] ( Keycool doesn't use Cherry switches anymore unfortunately.

Edit 2: Checked /r/mechmarket for you too. Could only find the one from here that is still on sale. Leopold with MX Browns once again. -___- ^I ^should ^do ^something ^profitable...

u/YogurtBatmanSwag · 0 pointsr/osugame

If you wan't to try tablet, this is pretty much the same as the osu tablet.

For the mouse, i like heavy palm grip mice, so i went for a roccat kone+.
A friend of mine who use claw grip has this mouse that he really likes. It's quite fancy though.

u/Lunedill · 1 pointr/osugame

Yes, this one

I like it and yes is thinner and lighter. But its almost the price of a XP-Pen G430 too :P. You decide if its worth.

I just bought it because the original pen broke in the spiral thing that seals the battery and it seems like it would do it again on any AAAbattery pen (design flaw).

u/12__Monkeys · 7 pointsr/osugame

i play with a Huion H420 (1) with an extra pen (2). i playd with wacom by a friend (3).
i think wacomstylus is thinner and u can hover higher above the tablet. huion is a simpler tablet. if u buy the tablet just for osu, i think a wacom is wasted potential.
(sry for my english, hope u can understand my point) =)




u/WokeGD_ · 1 pointr/osugame

your best bet is honestly just getting a wacom or something, even if it feels off at first it does have a bigger full area so you should just mess around with it until you find something comfortable

specifically the wacom one or even the 480 if you're willing to hunt for one in decent condition at a decent price

You could buy the CTL471 for 78$ on amazon

I've heard it's a pretty good tablet. I've actually ordered on yesterday, if you want to wait for mine to get here I'll tell you how it is.

Here's the Wacom site link:

Here's an Amazon link: Wacom Intuos Drawing Tablet, with Free Creative Software Download, 7.9"x 6.3", Black (CTL4100)

u/Storb · 2 pointsr/osugame

Tablet peripherals are commonly used for osu! because it allows for natural movement of your cursor, and many beatmaps have patterns that are more difficult to perform with a mouse when compared to a tablet (e.g. shapes like squares or stars, some dubstep patterns, anything by Hollow Wings). It's not to say these things are impossible to perform on a mouse--they're absolutely possible, but the learning curve for using a tablet is significantly lower because of the natural cursor movement that comes with it.

There are guides for tablet purchasing on the osu!wiki and even here on /r/osugame, but these are somewhat out of date. Popular tablets include the Huion H420 and the Wacon CTL-480, though the latter is discontinued. Newer tablets that have come to attention include the Wacom Intuos Draw (or CTL-490) and the XP-Pen G430.

u/Kurumiz · 1 pointr/osugame

I didn't say it couldn't be a factor in deciding the tablet you use, only that it should not be the sole factor in deciding (and probably not the main factor, either). The main bad thing about the gaomon is it has a battery pen, making it heavier than most other pens (and some high-ranked players like Rafis and i think Kynan(?) have said they choose to use their wacom over the gaomon s56k because of this). Even if you have less lag, you can physically reach the notes faster with a better pen (which is why i don't use my intuos5 over my ctl480 or 470), potentially negating the lag benefit of the s56k, not to mention that the s56k does not allow you to select specific coordinates in its driver software (afaik, it didnt used to anyways).

If you have $50 $33 extra? Sure, buy it, and if you're fine with the pen, stick with it. But the pen is one of the most important things on the tablet. I don't think it's as safe of a buy as a ctl471 though, and there are so many more good players using the ctl471 than the s56k (+470 if its just a ctl470 with improved hover distance like i think it is, but im not sure here) and no top player that i'm aware of choosing the s56k over their wacom even if they've been able to try one.

Also the polling rate of the s56k is 3* the 471's, not 4, assuming it reports at 400hz. However the amazon store page says it only reports at 200hz.

DREVO 84-Key Gramr Mechanical Keyboard with Backlit Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Red Switch, Black

A good mini, super cheap too (but it is a mini, so it's a lil cramped for some)

u/Sluoubs · 7 pointsr/osugame

I Recommend the following:

1)XP-Pen StarG640 6x4 Inch OSU! Ultrathin Tablet Drawing Tablet Digital Graphics Tablet with Battery-Free Stylus(8192 Levels Pressure)

2) OSU Drawing Tablet VEIKK S640 Ultra-Thin 6x4 Inch Digital Drawing Pen Tablet with 8192 Levels Battery-Free Passive Pen

3) GAOMON 6 x 5 Inches Soft Drawing Graphics Tablet Flex Pen Tablet Sign Board OSU Pad - S56K

Hope this helps!

u/BeasttrollMC · 1 pointr/osugame

If you are looking for a tablet for the sole purpose to play osu!, pick yourself up a XP-Pen G430 or a Huion 420 or even an osu! official tablet. Wacom is a great company and a great brand, but their tablets are mainly for graphics design. Of course their tablets can do everything that the XP-Pen and Huion can do and much much more, but those extra features you are getting from Wacom will cost you an extra 50-100$.

u/liasun22 · 2 pointsr/osugame

I'm interested in moving over to tablet after almost a year of mouse play. I know on the FAQ it says that the osu!tablet, Huion H420, Wacom Bamboo CTL and Wacom Intuos Pen are the most common tablets to purchase for osu. I found the Wacom Intuos CTL4100 at 43% off and was wondering if this is the same as the Wacom Intuos Pen? Also, would I be able to edit the playing areas and such with this purchase?

u/thecoon_324 · 2 pointsr/osugame

ii think 470 and 480 are cross compatible but not 490.

I got myself the 470 pen and it's working great on my 480.

this one:

u/Lorenso0 · 1 pointr/osugame

Huion 420, easily the best cheap tablet for osu, if you don't mind spending some extra money get the CTL-480

u/Enoratato · 1 pointr/osugame

Can you make this program for support for keypad users because I don't use keyboard, I use a keypad with speed switches. Here is the link to the keypad I use:

I really want to use this program because its more accurate then other bongo cats'. Thank you

u/Astreca · 3 pointsr/osugame

No problem. Also, if you do buy a tablet, the Huion H420 is cheap, but the pen requires a battery which kinda makes the Pen heavy.

That one I linked I like but if you can't afford that, the same company makes This one: XP-Pen G430S which is smaller, but 22.99 rather than 32.99. But I recommend just spending the extra $10.

Noticed Amazon has this side by side.

u/Ificouldslaynoise · 0 pointsr/osugame

I guess it's just personal preference but when I first switched from mouse to mouse+keyboard it took some time to get used to then i got a tablet and it felt amazing,it went so smooth,a mouse sometimes slips away,tablet doesn't on top of that with a mouse you have to move a whole brick,with tablet its only a stick.I think mouse players can be exactly as good or better than tablet players but for me tablet is easier,for those of you who are considering buying a tablet:
it really doesn't cost that much and it's the official tablet without the skin.I love it

u/TheNotoriousShark · 1 pointr/osugame

Yeah to be honest I have researched a lot tonight and decided to go for gateron, I'm researching what keyboard to get, for now, I am considering this one with brown gateron switches which looks so fucking nice and I'll keep investigating for some more.

u/renzu_todoroki · 1 pointr/osugame

if its your first time, then preferably, the huion h420 or huion 420 is a good choice,

its portable and has a good price for how decent/good the tablet is

u/KacKLaPPeN23 · 1 pointr/osugame

Yes it is compatible.
I found this offer on amazon this is the cheapest one that I found that is compatible, but I don't really know too many shops in the UK, so you might try searching for a better offer yourself.

u/2sik2betrue · 2 pointsr/osugame

The Bamboo tab looks nice! You said it sets it's own sensitivity? That seems like a huge problem for me. What about this tablet?

u/Ernest_EA · 1 pointr/osugame

How is the 471 in terms of hover height and input latency? Also is this the one?

Reading the reviews and some people are saying this is a fake product. Not sure if they're being trolls. Just making sure I have the correct page for the correct product. thanks.

u/CaptainShrimps · 1 pointr/osugame

XP-PEN G540 or G430 are the best tablets for osu at the moment.

u/riffraff11235 · 1 pointr/osugame

You know you can change the size of the active area on almost every tablet, right?

If this is your first time buying a tablet and it's just for osu!, I would suggest starting with the Huion 420. It's the same tablet as the osu!tablet, just without the fancy color scheme. I used it for almost a year without any problems before switching to a Wacom. for the bigger area. I think the tablet you mentioned in the OP is the one that Rafis uses.

u/jlha65 · 3 pointsr/osugame

Well, for around 35$ there's the Drevo Gramr and Tyrfing

I have the red switches Drevo Gramr since I got an ebay $10 coupon for it and it's been quite good. I can't really compare it to top-brand keyboards because I haven't tried them, but I can confirm that it's been worth the purchase in my case.

u/gunmanytf · 2 pointsr/osugame

Huion 420
$25, pretty solid tablet. Though the pen requires a battery

u/Venueum · 1 pointr/osugame

I'm also in Canada, and Indigo Canada was selling backlogged CTL-480's last summer (I bought mine June 2017), and my friend and I were lucky to snag two of them for $40CAD. I have no clue if they are still selling them as they were all out of stock the next month.

471 is more widely available ($112CAD here), you could also try a XP-Pen G430 / G640 (I was on the G430 before I got my CTL480).

u/JoeOnTheInternet · 3 pointsr/osugame

Alright well most of the comments here are pretty dumb. My pen broke on the 420 when I had it, buy this

Its rechargable, works on any huion tablet (including yours), and its alot lighter than the other pen. Also the surface/feel of the pen is very sweat proof as an added bonus.

PS. Horo uses it too

u/Metroid413 · 1 pointr/osugame

I'll look into this. Thanks for putting it on my radar. I've been considering an upgrade since I'm really starting to improve at the game and I want to hit higher level maps.

Checking out this tablet and I might purchase it after some research.

u/dylanr1 · 1 pointr/osugame

i want a tablet, Huion 420 im looking at, and i want to know the drawbacks of this tablet, and tablet in general, any help?

u/mittens2188 · 2 pointsr/osugame

osu tablets are just huion tablets so if you want you could always buy a new pen. The rechargeable ones (the charge lasts like 6months+) are $20. The normal battery ones are around $12.

u/Dinoswarleaf · 9 pointsr/osugame

Here! It's the cat design from that popular Neko Atsume app

u/DeucesWiId · 1 pointr/osugame

This is a good tablet if you don't want to pay too much for one.

u/Mazzers · 1 pointr/osugame

Happened to my old pen too (stock Huion 420 pen). I ended up buying this wireless pen from Amazon and it solved all of my issues. This should solve yours if you have £20 to spare /u/Keeshkuush.

u/pxd_ · 2 pointsr/osugame

You could always look into something like these Huion Wacom

u/Mickiemoemoe · 2 pointsr/osugame

In my experience, the buttons on the tablets are far from suitable for tapping. I would just get a mechanical number pad like this if you don't want to pay for a full mechanical keyboard.

Edit: or arcade buttons

u/thedarkjack · 1 pointr/osugame

if it's only for osu you might want to look at stuff like this

u/IDANUB · 3 pointsr/osugame

if you can shell out the extra $20 i'd suggest the wacom one because it has a bigger active area & doesn't take batteries (but i hear you only have to replace the huion's batteries every month or so)

u/jurgendurgen · 1 pointr/osugame

I can link you to this link on amazon where you can order a new pen for your tablet ;)

u/HD_HR · 3 pointsr/osugame

Please don't take this the wrong way. I'm going to answer you so you can save yourself time and effort.

I Have Money & I Don't Have a Budget

  • Wacom Tablet CTH 480 : Link!

    I Have Little Money & I Need Something Affordable

  • Huion 420 Tablet : Link!


    Why These?

  • These are the most used tablets throughout the osu! community. You are free to research other tablets but be aware that they may be dis-continued or tagged with other problems such as the CTL 490 which has input lag.

    Thank You.
u/SnapHabit · 1 pointr/osugame

I would recommend G430 for similar price range.

u/asrenos · 1 pointr/osugame

I'm guessing that's Alps copies as switches, would not recommend that model in particular.

this would be way better.

u/EpicDoodlez · 5 pointsr/osugame

I use the XP-PEN Star G640. The price does show $33, but it often dips into the 20s range with sales. ALSO, there is a tick box for a coupon which saves an additional $2 at checkout.


Tablet is absolutely solid, too. Its very, and I mean very thin. The tablet and pen feel high quality and it comes with not 1, not 3, not 5, but TWENTY replaceable pen nibs. You'll probably have a hole through your tablet area through use before you even run out of nibs.

u/rybergy · 1 pointr/osugame

Unless you feel like moving your arm a lot, then I wouldn't recommend playing with the whole tablet area anyways, since it's specifically for osu. I personally only use a quarter of the total area of my 420. I also find little to no latency from tablet to computer as well.

On the flipside, the 420's pen is rather uncomfortable and impractical. There's this one on amazon: though I have yet to try it out. Another downside of this tablet is that you have little room to rest your hand on relative to other, larger tablets, though depending on your playstyle that may not even matter.

Overall, the tablet is a solid tablet that gets the job done for osu!, and it's only $20. If you have any intentions of drawing, then I'd dish out the extra money and go for a CTL-480, but just for osu I'd go for the Huion 420.

u/K-Fuzz · 2 pointsr/osugame

My best advice is the HUION H420

Edit: I don't recommend the XP-Pen 430. It's about the same price, but noticeably laggier. The H420 is one of the ones I'd recommend even if you're not broke

u/meep94 · 1 pointr/osugame

The XP-pen G430 is also a nice budget tablet for beginners comparable to the Huion H420 but with a more slim and batterie-less pen.
I got both of them and prefer the XP-pen -->

u/numbuh132 · 6 pointsr/osugame

I was the same, started with a mouse and got used to the game for a couple months. Got a tablet when I was around rank 100k and a month later I'm at 45k with my rank exploding once I got my tablet. Give it a shot, it's only $25 on Amazon.

u/LG34- · 3 pointsr/osugame

this probably (went on canadian amazon just 4 u xx)

u/CoriolisAffect · 3 pointsr/osugame

Buy the keypad here

Buy key switches here

Buy soldering iron here

Open keypad, desolder switches, resolder new switches, put back together, done. It's basically what I did with my keyboard (plus blue switch on spacebar and brown on escape.)

u/ShiinoM · 2 pointsr/osugame

You can buy this off amazon for around 30, a numpad with mx blues


u/ShdewZ · 4 pointsr/osugame

amazon link

it's currently unavailable there though

u/ilPaski · 1 pointr/osugame

It should be LP-170-0k, the only difference between them is that this one doesn't have the eraser.


u/Jimmmehboy · 1 pointr/osugame

The 420 and H420 are actually two seperate products. I'd reccomend just the standard 420 since its 5 bucks cheaper and all you really need. Apparenly Osu's been a big part of their sales enough to deserve a logo on the regular tablet's box.

u/TheBiggestBox · 1 pointr/osugame

Wacom One/Ctl 471 or XP Pen G430. I would only buy the gaomon if you could afford the rechargeable pen as the pen that comes with the gaomon tablet is heavy.

u/mribizza · 1 pointr/osugame

You can try this , tho i dont know if you wanna pay the price of the tablet again just for a pen

u/ImBrdzh · 2 pointsr/osugame

If you are looking for a decent tablet under the 50s, you should just get the H420. It works both for osu and drawing, but isn't really recommended for drawing. If you can invest some more, you should get the [CTL480] ( if you can.

u/DocTavia · 1 pointr/osugame

No, that's just another battery pen I think. You can buy a separate pen entirely that's a different shape and has a rechargeable battery, unless I'm mistaken about the osu pen


I mention it because the weight may be distributed more evenly

u/puppet44 · 3 pointsr/osugame

Why don't you just buy a less bulky pen then? That's what I did. The Osu! tablet is a reskinned Huion 420 tablet, so it should work on it, because it worked on my Huion 420 tablet. The pen has no battery, so it's just as light as a wacom pen. The only downside to it is that it's not as durable as a Wacom pen. I have experience with both pens.

u/Rha_psody · 1 pointr/osugame

I'm also looking for a new tablet after I found out the CTL490 is terrible for osu!. I'm currently looking at this and this. I don't like relying on batteries, even if battery pens last for months.
