Summary: This product is decent but the setup is a pain. There's 3.. 4...wires? I like tablets because I like to put them on my lap and draw. You can put this on your lap, but there will be a jungle of wires everywhere going this way, that way.
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: 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: 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: It's a good tablet, don't get me wrong, but because it only has 2 point calibration, it gets really out of line when you get close to the edge. You have to basically stay in the middle of the tablet, which can get annoying sometimes.
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: 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: I bought this for my daughter, to replace a Wacom tablet. While the display and functionality of the Cintiq is wonderful, it comes with a lot of bulky cords (4), a power converter box that is rather cumbersome, and required an adapter to plug into the computer (another $40).
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.
