4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful piece of technology June 27 2013
By keefsey TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
I want to point out a few reasons on why I only gave 4 of 5 stars.

First, the weight. It's about 30 lbs when shipped. It's bulky and cumbersome to move around. Second. It's huge. It takes up a lot of desk space.

However, it's unparalleled technology. No one else makes this product. I was able to put away my pencils, erasers, rulers, markers, light table, tracing paper, scanner and all sorts of other tools by simply using this product. I draw from scratch on this tablet and do everything from start to finish. No other tools needed.

The pen is fantastic to use, it gets warm to the touch but not hot. It's not noisy, it is fully adjustable in position.

If you are serious about digital art, I highly recommend the 22HD Cintiq. While it does take up a lot of real estate, it eliminates the need for several other tools. I can't imagine how I got along without it, although I have to say, make sure you look at the 13"HD as well as it's lighter, smaller and more portable. Also, it's about half the price which never hurts :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing product Jan. 7 2013
Verified Purchase
First of all, this product arrived AMAZINGLY fast. Obviously this may not be the case for everyone, but I got it within 24 hours with the free shipping (I live in Ontario).

It was in mint condition, was very easy to set up, calibrate, and customize the quick-keys both in general and to specific programs. I have used it with Corel Painter and Photoshop, and I find with Photoshop the response time is just perfect; with Corel there is some lag, which is tolerable, but I work pretty quickly so I think I will stick with Photoshop unless there is a way to calibrate the Cintiq with Corel so it's more responsive. I find working with the Cintiq to be very natural; although some people might be turned off by the anti-glare coating, I don't mind it at all and hardly notice it. Being able to rotate the entire device while you work is also AMAZING. I love everything about it so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stop staring and buy... but keep a few things in mind. July 1 2013
By Brodie M. Perkins - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've been doing animation, illustration and 3D modeling for almost 12 years now. I started with a regular small personal wacom graphire tablet way back in my college days and gradually worked my way up to a larger 12 inch intuous. Which I used religiously for almost 6 years.
About 2 years ago, I happened upon a 12WX cintiq for about half the regular retail price (around $600). I snatched it up thinking it was a great deal and as I was already used to working on a 12inch intous, figured that at the very least, being able to draw directly on the screen would enhance my productivity.

It did not.

It came down to screen size. Most of the software I use (Zbrush, Photoshop, Maya) all have extensive menus and shortcuts and the 12WX's screen-space is just enough to do any serious work. After struggling with it for a few months, I re-boxed it, shelved it and went back to my trusty Intous.
Fast forward to 2012's San Diego Comic con where I stumbled upon Wacom's booth. They were demoing their newest products.. the 22hd and the 22hd/24hd touch tablets. I excitedly jumped on the biggest and baddest with touch support... After about 15 minutes of clawing around the buggy touch interface.. (which the Wacom dude had to reset 3 times) I moved over the 22HD and wow.. heaven. I must have sat there for at least 45 minutes.. just playing. I sat there so long, they ended up putting my stuff on their overhead screen for con goers to see while I was drawing. I guess some thought I was some popular artist worth knowing (I'm not.. at least, I don't think so) as they started to take pictures of me and the scribbles I was making on the screen.. (It was Batman, for those curious minds out there).

I was sold. As soon as Amazon orders went live with their free Prime shipping, I ordered one.
I've been using it since then daily and absolutely love it. I have difficultly expressing how much it's changed my digital work life.

So pros and cons.

PROS:
- It's a very nice big screen. I love the widescreen aspect as it allows more space on the sides for menus.. though that may be a personal choice for some as it does shrink the workable (portrait style) space a little.
- Bright screen with zero pixel flaws.
- Sturdy build on the bezel for moving around whenever as you need.
- Wiring system is still a little overwrote.. but improved and streamlined through a single port on the back, which helps manage wires quite a bit.
- It works flawlessly with all my pro-software
- Game changer. In case you can't tell.. I love it. The only negative I'm finding is that when I use friends computers for work, I have a habit of touching their screens.. which they hate, understandably. :)
- Speaking of games, I play PC games on it all the time.. most recently Bioshock Infinite cranked on high and it looked great.. no streaking or screen tearing etc.

CONS:
- The base is cool.. and give you a lot of really nice adjustment options.. but for my setup, I found myself working around the stand instead of it working for me. So, depending on your desk and space.. I'd recommend you get an ergo arm for it (which I ordered off amazon as well for about a $100) That made all the difference and took "working around" out of the equation as you can easily put the screen exactly wherever it's most comfortable for you.
- The buttons work well enough, and there's a lot of them (18) which is nice. but I tend to work in a dark studio space and find fumbling around for them to be a little bit of a hassle. I wish they had LEDs or something more tactile on them to make them easier to see in the dark or find without taking your eyes off the screen.
Once again, I found a solution and bought Razer's Nostromo keypad. It's keys have LEDS in them, are all programable/assignable to multiple sets and it sits easily on your desk or in your lap to toggle keys as you draw/paint/sculpt. It felt much more natural for how I work, than reaching for my keyboard or holding the edge of the screen to access the Cintiq's buttons.
- The screen DOES have some sparkle.. the anti glare or scratch coating is pretty noticeable when you first fire it up.. but unlike some, it didn't bother me then and I hardly even notice it now. But it's there, so it's worth a mention.
- This is more a disclaimer as I've read some saying it's tough to color correct the screen. I come from a video background and generally run a few monitors at once, not only to have more screens to spread out my work space, but to compare my end product between them to get an average that looks good on all the screens. (colors and gamut can look very diverse on different monitors and screens) I know it's not the slickest way to work, but that method has done well by me this long. In short, I don't know if the Cintiq 22hd has trouble color correcting, all I can say is that I've experienced no issues with it myself.

Even without the extras I mentioned (ergo arm and nostromo keypad), the Cintiq 22hd is fantastic tool right out of the box.
If you can't get together the scratch, get the largest Wacom Intous you can as it's an amazingly efficient and comparably inexpensive tool that will do 99% of what you need and do it very well. (I still have mine for portability and backup) But if you're really serious about digital art and do it (or plan to do it) for a living, I couldn't recommend the 22HD higher.

Whatever you do, don't skimp and get the smaller 12WX cintiq.. you'll hate yourself later, it's money better spent or saved, elsewhere.. trust me. And as sexy as they seem.. IMO, I wouldn't bother with the more expensive touch models.. unless you just HAVE to have the touch function and extra few inches of screen space. $$$$$!

On Amazon's side, I have nothing but praise. At time of release, Wacom's own stock (also free shipping from them) was on back order.. I placed my order a few days after they were available with no tax and free shipping. Three days later, I was unwrapping the beast in my living room. Great job!

It isn't often I bother writing product reviews, particularly this long after I've bought it. But this is hands down the best (profession related) purchase I've ever made. So worth the money as it's immeasurably changed how efficiently I work.
It's a thing of beauty and I think you'll love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny Sept. 13 2012
By Elsevilla - Published on Amazon.com
I had been working in the first generation cintiq 21ux for the past 6 years. The new upgrades on cintiqs like cintiq 21ux second generation and cintiq 24hd didnt caught my mind, because screen was so similar to mine. But after going to San Diego comicon 2012, went to the wacom booth, and they had this one, the screen was great, i couldnt believe the contrast when i saw it, didnt look dull gray like my old cintiq.

The goods

-The contrast its really big, it matches my new secondary led screen so perfectly, colors looks so nice, specially the contrast, after adding the color profile colors looked like charm, so i left it in default factory mode.
-Pen pressure its really good, compared to my old cintiq i can feel every single stroke more easier, its like drawing on butter. Gives me more control for finishing touches.
-Tons of extra buttons, its the first time in using a wacom tablet that i dont know what to place in a button, i mean i even have some empty buttons, not the case in past tablets i had used.
-I was so lucky, no dead pixels, the service came fast in my country Mexico from their distributors.
-Lighter in weight than my old cintiq 21ux.
-The black design makes it look sexier on my desktop, the black color helps to focus more in colors.
-Brightest monitor from all cintiqs.
-Buttons feels so nice on touch easily pressed.
-The free software included its awesome im loving the new color filters from color effex pro, its a must have if you are a painter or a photographer, animation software and the rest are awesome.
-Menus on the screen appears while you press it, its really nice feature, if you forget the customization.
- No fan noise. Maybe it doesnt have a fan?.
- More slim. Its a sexy tablet.
-Resolution looks nicer from past cintiq, widescreen format its great for using panels in color software, past cintiq was almost square, so that didnt help me a lot.
-Pen structure feels nice compared to old cintiq pen, feels great at hand, and its clearly that the plastic thing its not going to get bigger like past version, i really like this new pen.

The bads

-Warranty service can be a bit slow if you get a defective item outside of the country. But even if its long, wacom really care about their clients, im a clear example, they replaced my unit with a new one.

-Unlike my old cintiq 21ux, the ips panel fades a bit more if you move in any direction, so if you are looking for a precise color tablet, you should look for 24hd touch. But still the quality of the display its great, having contrast of 1000:1, you wont notice the little color objections. Probably the cintiq monitor with biggest contrast from all.
-The monitor still heats up a bit, like past cintiqs.
-The screen looks a bit like galssy with sand, but if you look it from far view looks nice, its all about getting used.
-Surface, sadly feels like a plastic surface like past ones, after a while using it, i feel the pen nib scratching the surface, so probably with time scratches will appear, wish this was a gorilla glass screen or something that can protect it. So im probably going to buy a Strong Engineering protective surface, to avoid future scratches.

My conclusion its that this tablet its worth it, i mean i was worried to spend a lot of money just to upgrade a bit from my old cintiq, but after i got it the upgrade gap was huge.

Its the first time i dont want to go sleep just to be glued on the screen working.

You wont regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've never been disappointed with Wacom products Nov. 16 2012
By rnenno - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Although I still feel Wacom can price gouge the hell out of their products because they can, I have found that the Cintiq models are essential for digital artists, and like buying a new car or putting a down payment on a house - it's a big expenditure, but well worth it.

These new models have a 16:9 aspect ratio compared to the old ones which seemed more square-screened, but both can handel HD quality. There are a lot more customizable buttons on the sides than the old ones, but I wish they would have kept the scroll wheel from the 4-series instead of going back to a button. I also prefer the scroll bars on the front instead of the back. The screen is plenty big for whatever you're doing, so I don't feel the extra 2" that the 24HD and 24HD touch give you is worth the extra $1500.

Be warned that the screen in the picture is not actually the full screen. It actually has about a 2" border of black that looks like it would be part of the screen, but it's not. I'd also recommend buying a screen protector (only place I know that sells them at this size is Posr.us) because Wacom warns that your pen nibs will eventually wear down to a point and then scratch your screen. You'll also have to invest in some computer speakers as well, as none of the Cintiqs come with them built in.

If you are an artist getting into working with a tablet for the first time, I'd recommend trying the Intuos first to see if it works for you then upgrade to the Cintiq if you want to later. I worked on an Intuos 4 for the last 3 years, and it's only a fraction of the cost of a Cintiq and does the exact same thing, but I found I could work faster with better results on the Cintiq because I was actually looking where I was drawing instead of drawing in my lap while looking up at a screen. You need real good eye-hand cordination for that. If you just want the option of being able to use a pen instead of a mouse, I'd say look into the Bamboos instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great tablet! Dec 30 2012
By Forged - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this tablet. It's very large and has tons of buttons. You can customize the buttons to be exactly what you want. I've set mine up so I never have to touch a keyboard when using it.

My few complaints -
First, there was a dead pixel about 4 inches into the screen on my first one. Thankfully Amazon replaced this extremely fast. The second one appears to have some dust or something under the screen. I can only notice these when the device is turned off (which is why I know they are not dead pixels). They do not affect use of the device, but two devices in a row with problems is ridiculous for an item this costly. I decided to keep the second rather than risk yet another defect like dead pixels. No device this expense should have dead pixels! Especially when you consider what this is used for!

I also wish it was slightly taller, but I like to have a lot of drawing space. This really isn't a major issue, since you can always check the dimensions on the product info and make sure it's good for you.

I bought this specific cintiq because I wanted it mounted on an arm. I don't think you can do that with the 24 inch cintiqs. I have an ergotron arm, and it works great with this tablet! I can push the screen up and backwards to use it as a second monitor, or pull it in close and set it in my lap for drawing. I also used it for doing real media artwork, by using this screen as a reference. We were doing portraits for school, so I pulled up an image on this screen, rotated it sideways, and pulled it up close to my easel. The cintiq came with instructions on how to prepare it for use with an arm.

Overall, I'm extremely happy with the device. The only real complaint is that this thing would have any problems (dust/dead pixels). You would expect top notch quality for a device this expensive.

Note - if you are going to buy something like this, I highly suggest getting an Art Pen as well. If you are not aware, the regular pen (called a "grip pen") you get with intous tablets and cintiqs does pressure and tilt. The art pen does those, plus barrel rotation. This adds a whole new dimension to brush control. I also suggest using a glove or something like a smudgeguard (google it) if you don't want to put smudges all over your screen. I also consider mounting this on an arm a must.

5.0 out of 5 stars Once you go Cintiq... you don't go back. March 2 2013
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Update- I have owned and used this cintiq for about 10 months now. My review below stands. The cintiq has been indispensable to me. If you can't afford one, consider buying a refurbished\used Galaxy Note 10.1\12.? *loving my note for drawing so far, very impressive!... I should also mention that I almost never remember the 22hd has an anti glare coating. It really isn't that intrusive to begin with, and games\movies look fantastic on this display, but if you really want to pay more for a cleaner screen, consider the touch hd.

Having been an intuos 4 med user for the past 2 and a half years prior to buying this cintiq, I will say...

It has a lightly blurry antiglare coating, which makes some ask why this was called "HD".
It has no back-lighting or small OLed screens for the express keys, making them hard to use in the dark.
It has some driver issues, I can't get my eraser to work in some applications, and sometimes during heavy pc load, the pen will skip beats in my lines.
It has about 1 inch of unused blank screen border that makes the total physical size larger then needed.
The calibration method is sloppy, and can never be done perfectly, and your stylus cursor will be a little off on the extreme edges.
The touch strip isn't perfectly responsive, and can glitch some apps out if you zoom with it and also accidentally zoom with other key presses or stylus movements
Many cintiqs manufactured in Sept 2012 or earlier have a problem with whistling capacitors which emits a high pitch frequency sound similar though not nearly as severe to what an old CRT television set would do. My 22hd is one of these that does this. It is hard to hear while sitting in front of it, but it is always there, and a minor-moderate annoyance *though I should be able to exchange for one that doesn't do this as many have*.

Despite all that... I feel horrible I ever got an intuos instead of a cintiq of some type back in 2010 when I started learning how to draw. The difference going from intuos to cintiq is in my opinion, incredible. Drawing is much more fun and productive on one of these.

I think the 22hd is the sweet spot in price\performance\features at this time. It's the best fit for a LCD mount, and that is a big deal imo. Despite the grainy screen, it's still a vibrant good looking screen that goes up to 1920x1080. Colors are very rich, as is the contrast. Gaming and watching movies on this looks great, I use my 22hd for everything and don't feel a need for a 2nd monitor hogging up desk space, which would be the case if I had gotten a 21ux or yiynova 19.
The 22hd, being the widescreen it is, I have plenty of space to use half my screen for ref, and the other half for canvas, I also love express keys again I just wish there was back-lighting on them, as I can't see them, even though the cintiq display is nice and bright.
I should also note that I don't use a screen protector of any kind, and I don't see any scratches just the usual scuffing pen tip debris that rubs off.

ERGOTRON LX MOUNT!

Why in the world are 22hd's sold without an ergotron or similar lcd arm mount included is beyond me. It's a match made in heaven, and I can't say enough about how awesome it is to be able to recline in my lazyboy chair, and pull a cintiq 22hd down into my lap, pivot it to whatever tilt or rotation I want, put on some music and have a great night of study. The 24hd's can keep their silly 60lb stands which aren't even half as versatile, I don't want them. In the future all cintiq's should get lighter and work with a lcd arm mount really well, but right now the 22hd works great with it weighing in at just 18lbs. I have had to tighten up 1 joint a little bit, but otherwise it's really solid and holding strong after 4 months of heavy use. *Update- it's now been 10 months of solid use, I move this thing a lot... Ergotron is holding up STRONG haven't had to adjust it again, the 22hd is indeed a great fit for it.

Gone is the disconnect of looking up at a screen while your hand draws on a smaller surface below, where small movements on it translate into large movements on the screen. I can't say enough how nice that is, to get the curves and lines I really wanted. Inking my stuff isn't impossible anymore.

So despite a few issues, I rate this 5 stars. It's that important to me, it's just a pleasure to use. All the extra work hours I had to pickup to afford this were well worth it! If you are serious about drawing\painting I highly recommend it.
