I was a bit concerned at first that the drawing area might be too small, what with two/three inches of screen space being taken up by menus and toolbars, but this is actually perfect! There is a SLIGHT pen lag on my Mac, very slight, does not come in the way of drawing at all except when I'm trying to do slow, precise inking- which I still prefer doing traditionally. I suspect this is because I need to update my OS, though, not because of the Cintiq. I also initially thought that the buttons were too few, but for me they work out just fine- I've set two on the Rocker Ring to increase/ decrease brush size, the other two for zoom in/ zoom out, one of the pen buttons for panning the canvas, and the other pen button for the eyedropper tool. The other tablet buttons I've set to things like Undo, clear, etc, and this configuration works like a breeze! Ultimately I would say that SPEED is the reason why someone should opt for a Cintiq over an Intuos. You get the great, authentic textured feel of pen-on- screen, with all the advantages of working digitally- the result is that you tend to work a lot faster. Moreover, drawing on the Cintiq is just awesome fun.
The only annoying thing about it is the setup. The cables seem a bit flimsy, and even slight movements to the cable that connects to the Thunderbolt port on Mac cause the Cintiq to lose connection and the screen goes black. The first few times this happened I got scared, but push the cable in firmly again and the screen will come right back.Read more ›
So, on to the product itself! I've used it a handful of times which is the reason I've given it 4 stars. No doubt I'll give it 5 after a few more uses as so far, it's fantastic! Also, for those who don't have a HDMI connection on their computer, like my MacBook, make sure you purchase a HDMI to Mini Display Port convertor (or what ever connection convertor you may need).
The packaging is brilliant. A very sturdy and secure box so even if it gets bashed about a bit, it'll be ok. My box was scratched and dented, which I wasn't happy about but the Cintiq inside was in pristine condition. Everything fits in nicely and has a layer each for item, Cintiq on top, stand underneath, cables etc on the bottom layer.
The Cintiq itself is a beautiful piece of kit! It just looks and feels expensive.....because it is! The stand which comes with it and clips on the back isn't quite up to the same standard. It feels flimsy and weak but it does actually do the job. You don't always have to have this attached, I've only used it once as I've drawn with the Cintiq on my lap. The screen itself is great. I've seen people talk about it being washed out and dull and also not very sharp. I can see what they're saying but there is a protective film on the screen which makes it anti glare, scratch proof-ish and makes it feel like your almost drawing on paper.
You can set the screen to different brightnesses (is that a word?) and you can set the screen to 1080p. I don't see an issue with how mine looks, I have vibrant colours and the HD quality looks great!Read more ›
So why not 5 stars? Firstly as a supporter of digital rights I consider the restriction on the user license that allows this device to only be used (at least legally) on one computer to be unnecessary and inappropriate. If a restriction is necessary it should at least allow it to be used on two or three computers. Secondly I prefer to be able to just plug a device in and install any necessary software and for it to simply work. This device needs to be calibrated which can affect the performance if not done correctly. Ok, this is just pressing the pen against four exact points on the screen so it isn't exactly difficult but the way you hold the pen can affect the outcome so you need to make sure to hold it the same way you will be holding it when you use the device. Depending on what you are doing you will not always be holding the pen exactly the same way either so you do lose a bit of accuracy. That said it is still the best device I have ever used for drawing and doing artwork on a computer.
The Wacom Cintiq 13HD is essentially an Intous tablet with a low grade 1920x1080 resolution laptop screen attached over the drawing surface. Like most basic laptop screens even after colour calibration, the colours are quite bleached out and the red channel especially suffers from this. As a professional artist I have used the Cintiq tablet for both work and personal painting for video games regularly for 2 years now and find the device useful but extremely disappointing and not warranting its price tag. The quality of the monitor makes me switch from using the display when painting important colour work or textures.
-Wacom tablet technology with great tilt and pressure sensitivity.
-Great for drawing line-art and gray-scale sketching, hand to eye co-ordination is improved for most artists when they can see where their strokes will end.
-Screen Quality (Poor colour range and common known rate of 3-4 dead pixel per screen)
-Expensive, the device is about 200-300 pounds more expensive than it really ought to be, the monitor is the same standard as 1920x1080p laptop monitor. The rest is technology for a typical Wacom Intous tablet.
-Not a replacement for an art monitor making the device rather frustrating having to switch screens simply to adjust colour.
-Gloss surface hampers viewing angles
-Lack of touch strip or ring which are common to previous wacom tablets, often used for zoom or brush size.Read more ›
