Can I use a XP-Pen Star 06 Drawing Tablet for anything Photoshop Wise?

I am interested in getting a drawing tablet , I don't want to spend too much on it, maybe something under 150? my friend recommended me about xp-pen graphics tablets . A bit of an odd question but just thought I'd ask if I could use a XP-Pen Tablet for anything with my photoshop Use ? 

my friend told me that Although I can get cheap drawing tablets I personally wouldn't recommend going down that road, cheap tablets are notorious for not working well with PS. some of brands which offer more features but they don't tend to work with PS so well in relation to pressure sensitivity .

So I think I can get a XP-Pen Star 06 tablet ( )like this which is OK and should suit my needs, the xp-pen battery-free stylus features 8192 pressure levels and does not require charging. 

If you have experience with different tablets i would love to hear your opinions.

    Cheap drawing tablets didn't have good drivers 10 years ago. Now a days the only things you'll find lacking for support in photoshop tends to be things like title support. And title support has dubious functionality even when fully supported. I would say you should be able to be just fine. But if you are concerned about it you could always go the cheaper waccom route. The more inexpensive bamboo line can be had sub 150.
