It’s 2012, and I figured, well, if the world is going to end, then I’m going to get myself a new Cintiq.
Yes, well that’s as good an excuse as any right?
I do like my older 21in model, really I do. Every Wacom product I have ever owned has been a great piece of kit, and the 21 was worth every cent.
The new 24HD is an upgrade, not as huge as going from an Intuous to a Cintiq, but still an interesting one nontheless. It is massive and heavy, and looks a bit like a panel that should be on a spaceship rather than an illustrator’s desk.
It seems quite comfortable so far. I managed to set it up to hang off the table but I had to prop some stuff on the base to keep the height up a little (the arms only seem to lock up when adjusted to their maximum height, presumably for transport purposes or if you want to use the Cintiq as a stand-up monitor). Wacom should consider adding a functionality to allow people to lock the arms into place at the angle they desire.
