Wacom Customer service in the US is horrible

Cristine Figueroa, Amazon
27 February 2014
  • Summary: I hardly used my Wacom since I bought it, took care of everything and treat it very carefully. When I ended up really needing it, the Cintiq stopped working. It would react randomly and sometimes would erase with the tip, draw with the eraser or not work at all... no sensitivity or anything. I bought another pen as suggested in the forums, however, it was still under warranty and I contacted their customer service. I read on the forums that they do not respond ever...

Wait if you can, Use it every day if you can't

M. Wang, Amazon
22 September 2009
  • Summary: EDIT IMPORTANT UPDATE 4 years later I lowered the rating as the converter box fried itself less than 4 years later. This is unacceptable, a huge design flaw and I have contacted wacom. Verdict: Definitely try it before you buy it as it is a love it hate it type of product. However, my recommendation is *not* to buy it at $900 and wait for it to drop further in price to the mid-high $700s for new.

Wait for the next version of "portable" 12WX

Alexander Goncharov, Amazon
6 September 2008
  • Summary: I've had my 12WX for a month. I had also worked with 21UX for much longer period. What I really like about 12WX: Light (can put it on your lap) Better than any intuous3 tablet( for those who need to see the screen and the pen at the same time as they draw) Does everything the 21UX does (for 1/3 of the price), but not as accurate What I don't like about 12WX: Screen not as bright or colourful as a typical monitor.

Outdated, overpriced, malfunctioning dissapointment

K.W., Amazon
10 January 2013
  • Summary: Display: - terrible washed-out colours - unevenly lighted screen behind a glass like protective surface Sensitivity: - about an inch from the edges the sensitivity starts to be a problem and lines start shaking - nine inch area offers decent responsiveness by 2008 standards Ease of use: - glass sticks to hands, the stylus encounters very little resistance, doesn't feel like paper at all, more like drawing on glass - normal use creates scratches in the protective surface,...

Shortcomings disgraceful for the price

Mr. J. W. Campbell "Jim Campbell", Amazon
13 June 2010
  • Summary: As a design/graphics professional, I know a number of artists who have recommended the Cintiq, although the majority that I know have the 21" version. I can't speak to the quality of the 21", but the shortcomings of the 12WX are nothing short of disgraceful at this price point. Pressure sensitivity is not as responsive as a standard Intuos tablet -- achieving a variation in line weight is an infuriatingly inexact process requiring multiple Undos.

Le concept est bien mais.... et le calage colorimétrique et la compatibilité d'affichage??, Bref bonnes gens, fuyez cet article

Patriarche, Amazon
6 September 2008
  • Summary: rien à dire sur le vendeur. Il a été parfait... Mais le produit.... j'ai cassé la tirelire trouvant le concept de dessiner sur l'écran génial.... Je pensais me servir aussi de la tablette pour les retouches photos. J'ai vainement tenté de trouver à l'aide de ma sonde spyder 3 un calage colorimétrique satisfaisant...en vain... De plus le fait de devoir brancher la tablette comme un deuxième écran devient compliqué sur le PC.

Que fais le contrôle qualité WACOM ???

M.G, Amazon
6 September 2008
  • Summary: Amazon est toujours excellent pour le prix et la livraison ... par contre très très déçu de WACOM !!! J'achète une première Cintiq 12, je la reçoit avec un bout de plastique / poussière de fabrication blanche coincé sous la vitre de l'écran ... vraiment embêtant quand on aime le soucis du détails et que l'on paye pour de la qualité .... je renvoie donc la tablette en spécifiant le default et demandant le remboursement.

Très déçue !

Zizinette, Amazon
6 September 2008
  • Summary: Extrêmement déçue par ce produit que je pensais être de qualité. J'ai une cintiq 12 depuis seulement 5 mois et au bout d'une heure ou deux d'utilisation, je suis obligée d'arrêter de travailler tellement l'écran chauffe ! En bas à droite, juste là où un droitier pose sa main pour dessiner ! Je suis obligée de couper, d'attendre que cela refroidisse pour rallumer ! J'ai contacté le SAV Wacom qui a refusé un échange disant que c'était tout à fait normal !
