Pretty good, but there is plenty of opportunity for improvement.

Summary: I am a UX developer who bought this device for white-boarding and doing mock-ups. Because it has an IPS panel, I was hoping that I could replace my Apple Thunderbolt display with it. Unfortunately, IMO, the screen on the Cintiq does not compete with the Thunderbolt display, so I need to keep both. I do really like the ability to program the buttons for individual programs - that's a really nice feature.
Summary: - Parallax distortion. There's about half of a centimeter between the plastic drawing surface and the actual LCD screen. This isn't a true con, since I already knew this before I bought this (Cintiq 22HD) and since the calibration feature nearly eliminates it. It's just a bit annoying if you like to move your head around in reference to the screen while doing your work.
Pros: It was an easy install; pretty fast and smooth on my windows 7 computer. The pen response time is fast, the felt-like plastic coating gives the pen display a very fine, high-quality touch.
Cons: Made in China - I knew this before I looked for the label that said it.
Summary: The USB connection device emits a high pitched, extremely annoying sound. Unplugging the USB connection eliminates it... so it's definitely coming from there. Looking to get my unit replaced, I bought it for Christmas, and I have to say while the actual tablet itself looks cool and seems very promising, it's extremely disappointing to receive a unit with such an obvious manufacturing flaw. Apparently a lot of people are experiencing this problem since its' release.
