Summary: I waited a long time before purchasing this expensive product. Amazon indicates that it was first made available on the site back in 2001 so I searched online for any indication that a new version might be released but I didn't find anything.
Summary: I bought this tablet and ultimately had to return it within a few days. The resolution on the screen makes the tablet pretty useless for detailed retouching. I ended up just using it as a regular tablet because my laptop screen was able to bring up more detail and had higher resolution...
Summary: At first glance, it's an amazing product. It's a great size, it's thin, bright, with nice buttons and a nice pen. I just got mine and am using it to work with as a normal tablet (to control the cursor on my main screen), and also to work directly on and draw/paint.
Pen interactivity excellent; colour, brightness and image quality unacceptable

Summary: I researched the Cintiq 12WX thoroughly before buying it, but I should have paid more attention to the many reviews (see amazon.com also) which commented on the poor colour, and which remarked that it was necessary to do final colour work on another display.
Summary: For those who have money to spare do not read. For those who appreciate value for money, most of us, please be careful. This is a beautifully made device, its technology is effective and advanced. But it is not in my opinion anymore than a highly expensive sketch device. Why?
