As far as You know is there any compatibility problem of ArtRage Software with any of the Wacom Cintiq (Graphic/Digital Pen Monitor) cheaper alternatives such as Huion GT190S or GT-220, Ugee 1910B, Yiynova MVP22U(V2 or V3) etc.?

Which is, among the affordable alternatives, the most cost effective or best quality You would advice?

*as far as we know* (very important disclaimer :D ) there are no compatibility problems. All the examples above would have to use the main driver standards to communicate with the OS, and ArtRage supports the driver standards rather than the devices directly.

In some cases, the device itself might be more likely to have quality issues, or the drivers might not be kept up to date, but the available options have changed a lot in the last year. It used to be that we could only recommend Wacom, now... well, we test with Wacom, we can't test every device out there and the quality keeps changing anyway, so we still can't officially recommend anything else, but it should *work*.

Thanks, dear Hannah!
This means that on that kind of device the software shall be downloaded for OS and not for Win, then.
I apologize, but we still have to downselect and buy it, so I actually don't know much about it so far.

Ah, OS = operating system, not OSX= Mac! I used it instead of having to write out 'Mac OSX and Windows operating systems' :p Everything works on Windows and most things should work on Mac OSX. ArtRage will support them on either OS.
