Summary: i used to own the 12" and i loved it, in the new 13"HD they fixed most the previews issue that i had with the 12" the only downside that i see here is : the stand !, its horrible compared to the 12" not fast and easy to adjust, and they removed the mounting holes in the back, but over all its a great tablet
What's Good: The Cintiq definitely helps with my work flow

Summary: I put off buying this for a few years. I focused too much on the price, my Intuos 4 is still kicking and thought the 13in screen wouldn't be enough. However, since the day I unboxed and plugged it's 3-in-1 cable in, I regret putting off acquiring this essential tool. What's Good: The Cintiq definitely helps with my work flow. With the Intuos I never completely got over the disconnect with my hand/eye coordination.
great!. but beware of the base, drivers and cables!!

Summary: It's a great tool for darwing like a pro!. Things I didn't like: The base, its cables, and the drivers. The base it's just a piece of plastic that can't hold the Tablet well, so it's kind of unstable and you need to be very carefull not to do much pressure when you draw on it; The other thing is that it comes with a lot of cables and a huge power adapter. They all need to be plugged in. It's just not practical.
Excerpt: First off , i use this product everyday as an aspiring artist. For hours on end i find myself delighted and enthusiastic about starting my work! From the sleek feel of the pen brushing over the surface to the short keys, this is one tablet i cant believe i ever did without!Pen has a good grip to it and settles nicely in my hand. Now it's like one of my appendages whom i'd not go anywhere without.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Control, Increased Productivity, Lightweight, Natural Feel
Summary: I want to give this a 5 AND a 2 star review, because the tablet is amazing and I love it...when it works. Took hours upon hours to get it even functioning the day it arrived. Then when I moved shortly after, had to go without internet for awhile, this apparently caused me to not have an update or something I needed, because out of nowhere the tablet just became a monitor with no touch/pen functions.
Excerpt: I bought this for my daughter, who is working on a degree in Digital Media and Animation. So far I get good reviews from her. She previously had a WACOM Intuos 3 that quit working so I decided this would be just what she needed.Con: I wasn't impressed with the cable assy. It looks a little flimsy, hope it last for a while.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Control, Increased Productivity
Summary: I have been using the Cintiq 13HD almost daily for about a month after upgrading from a normal Wacom Bamboo tablet. I did have to exchange the Cintiq once because a dead white pixel appeared within a week of use; it was not there from the beginning. One or more dead pixels is a basis for replacement from Wacom and Amazon made it extremely simple to replace. It is fairly common for a Cintiq to arrive with a dead pixel, apparently, so be prepared for that.
Summary: I can't believe I waited so long to get this, it's everything I hoped for and more. As an art student I do a lot of digital painting, and after just a day of use my workflow has become much faster. I can sketch with ease now directly into Photoshop while before, I found it necessary to scan a sketch in before painting it. The express key and rocker rings on the side allow for a great deal of customization which I love.
Amazing at what it does, yet thrives for improvements at its price range.

Summary: An amazing touch interface. It has dead-spots around the edge. But other than that it does its job and it does it precise. The display looks astonishing. Wish it had an inner recharging battery, so that it wouldn't need an external plug. Trying to install its software and setting it up was annoying. Needs led's on the shortcut keys on the left side. Don't lose the pen because it's extremely overpriced.
Summary: The pen sensitivity compared to my previous model (the 12WX) is immediately noticeable, as is the high resolution display. 1000 dollars is a bit pricey, and I've had some driver related crashing problems on my mac, but as an artist by trade, I wouldn't give it up for anything. If I had one complaint, it's that the buttons on the side don't feel quite as responsive as the 12WX's. if I push any of them too quickly, it doesn't register some of my presses.
