Review: Wacom Cintiq 21UX Pen Display

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.
  • 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).

Review: Wacom Cintiq 21UX Tablet PC Input Device

Wired
12 February 2007
  • Excerpt: Look up at the graphic artist! What’s he holding? Is it a tablet? Is it a monitor? No wait, it’s a Cintiq 21UX! This input device is the Holy Grail of graphic design peripherals. Why? It’s actually an interactive pen display that splices the DNA of an LCD with a full-sized input tablet.
  • Pros: Decent 1600×1200 pixel resolution. Can be angled and rotated for the best drawing position. Monitor sports eight customizable buttons and two touch-sensitive control strips. Coated to feel like drawing on paper. Battery-free stylus with “eraser.” 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity.
  • Cons: Included stand doesn’t allow for fully vertical positioning. Laid flat, this monster mangles desk space. Toggle buttons on stylus are cramped. Impossible to use as an input device when being utilized as a secondary display.
