Excerpt: I am not a power user, so keep that in mind when reading this. I am a filmmaker who also does a lot of my own VFX and graphic work, utilizing After Effects, Photoshop and Cinema 4D. I use a Hackintosh PC (runs Mac OS X 10.9) with a Titan Black 6GB GPU.The Cintiq 24 HD Touch is a great tool that has DRAMATICALLY increased the speed and quality of my work.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Irreplaceable, Powerful
A very good and reliable device but is it really worth the asking price?

Summary: To be completely honest, this is a very good device and any professional in the industry should look into getting one but the price in my opinion is too far fetched. Think about what $2,500 could do in any other situation. It could be used to be a down payment on a car, pay the bills, or even that cruise that you've always wanted to go on.
Probably the most important thing no one tells you about the 24HD...

Summary: You're probably thinking that this thing will be like using a Wacom device but with the added ability to draw right on top of what you see. It's better than that. No one tells you what it's really like to lean over this 24-inch monster. No one tells you that it's like being INSIDE the application, like you're standing waist-deep in the canvas area, surrounded by palettes and icons and menu items.
Excerpt: We use the cintiq primarily for illustration and 2d animation.It's super intuitive to use and maneuverability to place the cintiq in comfortable positions. With WACOM you know you're getting quality hardware.We wish the cintiq didn't have the anti-glare / matte coating, as it changes the vibrancy of colors.
Excerpt: I have used many Wacom Cintiq screens (never owned one until now) and this is the best by far even though it is not a touch model. If you have been holding off to get one, well you are missing out on this enjoyment of having this. My work is much faster and comfortable because of the resting in your lap ease when working. Yea it is one of the heaviest models but for a reason, so it can balance the huge screen.
believe it or not its BETTER than the art table because of the fluid edibility ...

Summary: OMG OMG OMG- these things are way impressive even coming out of the massive box- and even more impressive when in use - Ive never seen anything so expensive be SOOOO worth the money! for inking art there is no substitute, believe it or not its BETTER than the art table because of the fluid edibility of the inked art after its drawn in vs the rigidity of art inked on the drawing table and Ive been inking on the art table for 20 years.
Excerpt: I love everything about the tablet except the integration with Windows 7. I am using 2 Dell 30" HD Monitors, dual video card, j5 DVI-USB3.0 for the Wacom (3rd Monitor). Wacom says it will not work with the j5, but it does. The issue with the tablet on Windows 7 is the Wacom Keys would freeze after an hour. You can only do a hard reboot to reset and find the "lost driver" and regain functions, as windows could not "find the driver" for tablet unless you reboot.
