Wacom Cintiq Is an LCD Screen You Can Draw On

Wired
22 August 2011
  • Excerpt: As an artist, I’ve always wanted some sort of one-to-one input when working in Photoshop or zBrush. I’ve used several of the traditional input tablets, but I’ve never been fully satisfied. I still ended up drawing on paper and scanning the results. It’s just more natural. Input tablets have been constantly improving in the decades they’ve been around. But the technology remains imperfect.
  • Pros: Amazingly natural to work with. Pressure sensitivity makes drawing on a computer as intuitive as drawing on paper. Highly accurate. Gorgeous display. Connects via USB and DVI-I.
  • Cons: High price point. Lack of 90-degree adjustability can cause neck strain after prolonged use (like an eight-hour workday).

Cintiq 21UX

21 April 2010
  • Excerpt: (1 items) The Apple iPad ( ) may be this spring’s most talked about touch-sensitive device, but for digital artists, the Wacom Cintiq 21UX interactive pen display still holds the title of top tablet. Thanks to a recent redesign, the 22-inch Cintiq now offers twice the pressure sensitivity of its predecessor, two strategically repositioned Touch Strips, and 16 programmable ExpressKeys that enable you to customize the tablet to fit your work style.
  • Pros: Double the pressure sensitivity of previous model, 16 programmable ExpressKeys, Twin Touch Strips relocated to rear of unit, Screen reclines and rotates using provided stand, Solid-feeling, textured glass
  • Cons: Hefty size and beefy tether limits portability, Price still too steep for most users

Warning: This Gadget Will Unearth Your Creative Side

AskMen.com

  • Summary: While digital advances may be responsible for reinventing the world of art and design in the modern age, some aspects of these fields have received less attention from technology than others. For example, despite the persistent evolution of computer mouse technology, this form of input still cannot begin to compare to the control or connection provided by using a pen or pencil.

Forget about the iPad: the Wacom Cintiq 21UX is the digital sketchpad most artists will want.

Good Gear Guide.au
11 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Despite costing more than many workstations and being about as portable, the Wacom Cintiq 21UX is so much more than a sketchpad. It’s an easel and a full set of Grumbacher paints and brushes to the iPad’s 2B and a Moleskine sketchbook – it enables you to create final artworks, not just roughs.
  • Pros: Hands-down the best way to draw and paint digital artworks
  • Cons: Screen glare issues, large and heavy if used on your lap, pricey
