This review is from: Wacom Cintiq 21UX Interactive Pen Display Mac / Win (New Product) (Electronics)
I have been using the Cintiq for concept art and illustration for number of years. Quite simply the best way to design. You really should buy this if you draw on computers for long periods of time.
Also serves as an excellent way to plan compositions and colour schemes for painting. Bear in mind you will need to own Photoshop or some other pressure sensitive image creation software.
It's a little heavy, so don't expect to have it on your lap for long periods.
I have it on my desk so it overhangs - you can spin the screen around if you wish, although in photoshop CS4+ you can do that with a shortcut key within the software. Having both ways is still cool.
The pen may seem like it is drifting from the screen in the corners as the screen is set back from the pad, I don't find this a problem at all, as I tend to draw and paint 99% in the central area. You might notice this when you go to close a window and hit the wrong button the first few times! Keep using it and you'll get the hang of it.
5* product - nothing is better.
