Wacom Cintiq 12WX Review

22 July 2008
  • 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.
  • Cons: Price may be beyond the more “casual” user.

  • Summary: Is the 12WX worth twice the price of a comparable-size Intuos tablet? Only if you value the built-in LCD.
  • Pros: Smallest, most affordable Cintiq; crisp, bright LCD
  • Cons: Takes up lots of desk space, twice the price of a comparable Intuos tablet

  • Conclusion: All that said, we really liked working with the Cintiq 12WX and will be sorry to see it go. If you've got the budget and the need, there's no reason to deprive yourself; if you've got the space, you may want to consider one of the bigger options, as well.
  • Pros: Bulky breakout box, Hard to work near the edges of the screen, Relatively expensive
  • Cons: Fluid operation, Useful for many graphics and imaging tasks

  • Excerpt: At this screen size, unless you really value the built-in LCD, you might be better off with a cheaper drawing tablet.

  • Summary: Художник, которого мы привлекли в качестве эксперта, весьма положительно оценил качество картинки, а также скорость работы (это важно, особенно когда рисуется набросок быстрыми, резкими штрихами или наносятся виртуальные мазки).
  • Pros: Перо, как и в других планшетах Wacom, обеспечивает 1024 уровня чувствительности к нажатию (от 30 до 400 г). Разрешение матрицы 1280x800, глубина представления цвета 24 бит (16,7 млн. оттенков), контрастность — 600:1, яркость -- 180 кд/м2.
  • Cons: Цена все же слишком высока.
