Microsoft Surface Studio 2+ – Hands-On
Express yourself at any angle with the versatile Surface Studio 2+. Watch as Compnow’s Brendan Redpath gives you his rundown of the Surface Studio 2+. We also heard our Graphic Artist, Lisa’s perspective on the all-in-one desktop and how it works for designers.
If you are looking for a device that combines a stunning display, a powerful performance and a versatile design, you might want to check out the Surface Studio. This is a 28-inch Pixelsense touch screen that delivers an amazing visual experience. You can adjust the screen to any angle with the zero-gravity hinge, and use the pen to sketch, draw and edit with ease.
The Surface Studio has only one configuration, but it’s a solid one. It comes with an Nvidia RTX 3060 graphics card, an 11th Gen i7 processor, 32 GB of RAM and a 1 TB SSD. This means you can handle any creative task without compromising on speed or quality.
But don’t take my word for it, we asked Lisa, our graphic artist from the marketing team, to share her impressions of the Surface Studio 2+. She compared it to other devices she has used, such as iPads and Wacom tablets, and here’s what she said:
– The pen tracking speed was very fast and accurate, unlike some other devices that had noticeable lag or jitter.
– The low tilt angle of the screen made it comfortable to work on, like a sketchbook.
– The gap between the glass and the LCD was very small, so there was no parallax error or distortion when drawing.
– The pen had different levels of pressure and tilt sensitivity, allowing for realistic shading effects.
As you can see, Lisa was very impressed by the Surface Studio and its features.
If you want the best-in-class experience and you have the budget, you should get? Absolutely. If you are a user that spends a lot of time in front of this screen during the day and wants to avoid eye strain, this is for you. If you work in a design studio or if it’s for a lab or a school, this is absolutely something you should consider. So if we were to give this a rating out of five, which we don’t normally do, it would have been a five. But I’m going to give it a four and a half purely because of that cost. And if that cost is a bit of a concern for you, we’ve actually got some access to some demo stock. So we can actually give you one of these to try for a while and see if you like it.
