Summary: I'm looking to taking the next step with my Artistic skills and the Cintiq 24HD touch is the space shuttle to get me there. Though massive in size and weight, there's no doubt this Interactive display is a wonderful piece of tech. The learning curve for the touch controls can vary but let just say with the touch screen I can now navigate through Windows 8 flawlessly. Very happy and overjoyed with this purchase.
Summary: I love this Cintiq. I don't really have any complaints other than the fact that I got 1 dead pixel toward the center of the screen. I'm going to let that slide, but if another one shows up I'll be contacting Wacom for a replacement. On a normal monitor I probably wouldn't care, but with the Cintiq you generally have it very close to you while you're drawing on it. Also, for $2,500 I would expect it to be perfect.
A bit short of "Heaven on Earth", but not by much.

Summary: It is a great product. Excellent industrial design. A bit finicky as a device but still solid overall. For the price, I suppose I expected greatness I had never seen before. Pretty close, but I was not blown away either. That's just me though. Most people would be 5 stars with exclamation points. Just don't think about the price. Wacom has left room for improvement. That's good business. Got to make a buck down the road. No competitors but themselves. They are smart.
Summary: I've owned a 12WX and I've also had a 21UX at work, so I thought I'd get the big monster of them all, the 24HD. After opening it, I noticed it had a DVI cable... my computer has a HDMI. I was utterly blown away that something with the name "HD" in it did not have a HDMI cable. Then I thought, well, let's go old school VGA. Unlike the 12WX and 21UX you can't just plug in the DVI to VGA, you have to take this thing apart and cram wires and route them.
Summary: Ok, this monitor is awesome. I love the way the stand lets me set the monitor out over my tabletop to work on and the controls all over it are great. The screen is almost as bright as my normal monitors, which im happy with. The only thing that I docked a star for is the price...OMG its expensive. I can see this being worth every penny for someone using it to make money though. Myself, I am a hobbyist who..
It is great but don't buy it, the 24hd without touch is better

Summary: I bought one,almost £3000, please don't do the same mistake and go for the one without the touch option. I barely use the touch on my cintiq, I use mainly the keyboard shortcuts, it's quicker and more responsive, In order to select tools with your fingers from example, you need to make sure the cintiq's pen is far from the screen and it takes few more seconds before you can switch tools. It's still faster to do it with the shortchuts.
Summary: A word of warning, do not rush into buying one of these, it's a monster piece of kit designed for a big desk space. You will most likely need Another person to help you to carry and set up (unless your a super soldier), because this thing is massive and heavy and I mean HEAVY HEAVY, you'll also need a very strong support for this bad boy because it'll (support) snap like a twig if it's not supported properly.
Summary: okay, first off heavy, if you order one make sure theres a second perosn around to help set it up. right now onto the product, it wont make you the next picasso or (insert famous name) but it will streamline your process, allow you to push the boundaries of your art and get to grips with phot editing and drawing software. i couldent recomend it more. oh it losses a star as you need an adaptor for mac machines. thats all.
Summary: I'll second the recommendation for Lambda-Tek in another review -- my 24HD came from them at an unbeatable price and next day delivery. I'll echo the caveats about the size and weight of the unit -- I managed to get it up a flight of stairs to my studio and set up myself, but I felt like I'd had a bit of a work-out by the time I'd done. It's also slightly disappointing that you can only lock the arms in the upright position, or lower the display all the way down.
Summary: I bought this from the Amazon seller LambaTek who I would recommend, quick replies to all messages, although it was difficult to use my credit card with them as I would always recommend with the safety measures that come with credit card over debit cards. Onto the Cintiq, be prepared for the sheer size, I was working with a 21" NEC and a A4 Wacom and had plenty of space for extra books, laptop etc...
