The pen is good, just is not the same with the one in the picture that I used before.
Wacom Intuos3 Grip Tablet Pen ( ZP501E ), Amazon
21 May 2012
Summary: I didn't know that wacom actually has another type of pen which is much more thiner and lighter that works on the Cintique. I lost mine so I bought this one. But when it arrived I was surprised, because it is totally different with the original grip pen.
Summary: Between the resolution-matching issue and the sensitivity thing, I find myself using the Intuos a lot more. It's more convenient, more sensitive, and less hassle.
Pros: Nice size, nice screen. You really can't find something like this from anybody else. A tablet with a color LCD is insanely useful.
Cons: Unless your PC's screen resolution EXACTLY matches that of the tablet, you can't "mirror" the displays. The image on the Cintiq becomes distorted in one direction or another, so you have to extend your desktop instead, which is not as useful. Sensitivity is not nearly as precise as an Intuos tabl...
Summary: it is big enough for me and the view is clear enough although it is not an HD view however, you still can use it I only wish to have less wiring !! it has lots of connection to work even the laptop does not have such connections !!
Summary: First thing I noticed was all the cords and cables and how in the world could this be portable when all these connections must be toted about. This is really meant to stay at home, not like the commercials would have you believe that it can easily be mobile.
Summary: I loved the way I could use the pen to make thick lines ! the pen is very sensitive and thats a good featuer ! but I didn't like that it has alot of wires!! and also , didnt like the tablet wire which is very thick and not flexible to move. I cann't move my tablet will because of its hardness wire!
Summary: THE GOOD: The Cintiq set-up was easy and straight-forward. Win 7 immediately recognized it as a second display. The Pen is responsive and easily calibrated. It works as advertised. The heating issue that others have talked about was non-existent for me.
Summary: The appeal of Wacom's Cintiq line is immediate for every would-be artist, capable with traditional mediums but found transitioning to digital very difficult. Drawing directly on the screen was supposed to alleviate a lot of the disconnect seen with simple tablets.
Summary: As a graphic artist, longtime Wacom user, and Cintiq 21x early-adopter, I was waiting anxiously for the portable version of the Cintiq and bought it immediately. Well it is portable and usable, so they get points for that. But you can forget about using this on the plane.
