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.
Excerpt: When I first use, It take time to draw without looking computer. But now it's perfect to see the drawings on surface not monitor screen. But 13.3" little small to make big projects. Don't think about it just buy...
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Control, Increased Productivity, Lightweight
Excerpt: I bought this to replace my old 21" cintiq. I wanted more desk space and the old cintiq was loosing it's brilliance. I really like the smaller size and find it just fine to draw on. My only issue with is its side connection. As others have said, if you knock the connection accidentally the device looses picture. I usually have to take the connector completely out and put it back in then it comes back on. It doesn't take much for this to happen.
Pros: Good Control, Increased Productivity, Lightweight, Natural Feel
Works as expected for the price, possible software issues

Summary: If you are familiar with wacom products, this one works well like previous model cintiq's. It is very thin, like an ipad. The stand is flimsy feeling, but works in practice. May need something to prevent it from sliding however. It is also strange to snap in. Software installation is a bit annoying, but that is expected.
Summary: I'm super upset that the shipping company Newegg went with decided to leave this on my doorstep without having me sign or even knocking on the door.
Pros: Alright, so this tablet is exactly what you want if you're wanting to move from a bamboo or the like onto something where you can draw on the screen itself.
Cons: The downside to this, and maybe all, cintiq tablet, is it's color display is pretty poor. It seems to require some tinkering with to get it looking like your monitor, but I have yet to be satisfied in that area.
Summary: Its amazing to work on, an absolute joy. Some downsides that may not be mentioned would be the brightness isn't on par with the LED screens that are showing up everywhere. Also, once you use it, you'll find yourself wanting the larger size after a bit, with more buttons. Love it though!
A wonderful product BUT some backward steps in technology

Summary: I just received my Cintiq 13HD last Thursday and I have some thoughts / feedback regarding design. I first started with the Intuos 4, a good workhorse tablet, the control ring was lovely, as was the digital display names of buttons as they were programmed, they displayed the applied name with each piece of software - BRILLIANT! I bought the Cintiq 22HD and the digital button name display was gone. Ok...
Excerpt: I use the product to make illustrations and digital painting. The great thing about Cintiq 13HD is that you can see directly where you are tracing the lines and painting. I loved the pen and the sensibility that it has. It feels just like a real pen on a paper. You can customize the tablet button functions for quick shortcuts. One thing that Wacom did miss is the fact that the screen (a very thin screen protector) is not free of scratches.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Control, Increased Productivity, Lightweight, Natural Feel
Cons: No Extra Screen Protector, Screen Protector Scratch, Screen Scratches
Excerpt: Just had the wacom for less than one week. Awesome device . Would definitely buy it again. It would be nice if BH would ask buyer to review again after 6 mos. Con: for usage with older Mac or PC , would need to get adapter connector.
