5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant device but not essential for everyone, 20 Nov 2011

This review is from: Wacom Cintiq 21UX Interactive Pen Display Mac / Win (New Product) (Electronics)
Having previously owned a cintiq 12wx and a A4 intous 3 I found the Cintiq 21UX for me falls somewhere in the middle but in a good way, the 21ux offers you the luxury of working directly on the screen while offering a huge working space thats even bigger than (what I had already thought was large) the A4 intous 3 tablet. Its advantages really depends on what you intend on using it for as at first I was shocked to find that using a 21ux felt very similar to using a 12wx and offered only small advantages over it, however this was only for sketching. But with the increased screen size and superior colour gamut the 21ux is far supperior(and faster) for other tasks such as digital painting, video editing, graphics design, 3D modelling and 2D/3D animation (I strongly recommend 2D animators limit their options to the cintiq range especially the 21UX and 24HD as this is where I found the cintiq's offered the most advantages with its increased accuracy and increased work flow speed that working directly on the screen allows which is very important for animators). Which comes to my main point of this review and the biggest factor I would (If I could go back in time) consider before parting with my hard earned ££££££££££ do you really need the 21UX? I am not trying to say It isn't worth the asking price because it is; the hand to eye co-ordination issue you get with the intous tablets are removed and as i've mentioned earlier the increased screen size definately comes in handy for projects where working on a large screen is beneficial but the advantages it offers over the other wacom tablets does not make the other tablets obsolete you can still get the job done on a intous 4 or a cintiq 12wx (with a little more time and effort)it all comes down to what you can afford; if you can comfortably afford to spend over £1500-£1700 on this tablet then do so you wont regret it, however if you can afford to spend a bit more time on a given project to get the same results on an intous or cintiq 12wx then you may find you could be saving yourself quite a lot of money buying one of those cheaper tablets instead.
