Great except for resolution

qwanker, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had this for about a month. Overall I am pretty pleased. Moving from a wacom drawing tablet to this was night and day. The stand is really useful, and it can move to any position very easily. Its exactly as promised. The stand is big/deep. Your desk will need a minimum 15 inches front to back for the stand. My only beef is I have no idea where Wacom gets off calling this thing HD.

A very good and reliable device but is it really worth the asking price?

Camron S., Amazon

  • 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.

Fantastic Art Tool, but...

Neal S. Baker, Amazon

  • Summary: Whenever one has to start a review of anything with a qualifier, it has to be something worthwhile. Let's get the good out of the way: Wacom continues to show why they are the standard for creative tools. The 24HD is a wonder to work with, with incredibly smooth pen strokes, brilliant colour display, easy to use shortcut keys and is very easy to position to where you want it. I am glad I bought it and don't regret the decision as it paid for itself inside of a month.

A MUST for Visual Designers.

Michael M., Amazon

  • 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.

Worthwhile investment!

  • 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.

David McFarland, Amazon

  • 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.

OK

  • 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.

It is great but don't buy it, the 24hd without touch is better

N. S. V, Amazon
4 November 2013
  • 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.

Too big!!!

Ronan, Amazon

  • 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.

Truly top of the line equipment

Scrimbad "mr_scrimmers", Amazon

  • 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.
