Excerpt: What makes this graphics tablet so phenomenal (aside from the obvious LCD interface) is the sensitivity and ease of setup and calibration. It has 1,024 level of pressure sensitivity and a plus/minus 60 tilt radius. The review had only two minor qualms: there seems to be a small video glitch that rarely pops up and may only effect Macs. Also, the period of adjustments for the on tablet buttons takes a while.
Conclusion: I really do like the 12WX, but my frustration with the alignment led to me try using the display as a traditional tablet to draw on my primary monitor. I was much happier working this way as I wasn’t visually expecting the pen and the display to be aligned, I just watched the cursor position.
Summary: Taken on price alone, the Wacom Cintiq 12WX looks expensive. But once out of its box the quality of the display, the build quality and the sheer versatility of the device quickly becomes apparent and makes the Cintiq 12WX an indispensable tool for any graphics professional on less generous budget or for those needing a portable solution to their graphics art production.
Pros: Design and build, ease of use, portability, indispensable portable tool for graphics professionals.
