Wacom Cintiq? Pros, cons, real life experiences?
Posted by: CJsNvrUrly

Our daughter is researching Wacom Cintiq Pro tablets. She has a shiny new 2020 iMac (Leader!). She's been looking at the new tablets on the Wacom site, on B&H, and refurbs on eBay. Reviews mention dead pixels quite often. She feels that, after spending 2k on a product, there shouldn't be any dead pixels at all. She recently had a bad experience with a Huion tablet where it wouldn't work after her computer had gone to sleep. (This was troubleshooted for weeks--replacing cables, trying on different machines, etc.--to no avail before returning it.)
We really don't want to purchase another product that gives us more trouble. We want something that "just works."
What do you recommend?

All three of my kids use various Wacom tablets; I'll get some info from them today.

I would try out an iPad with an Apple Pencil first. Use Sidecar in Catalina.

iPad Pro 12.9, Apple Pencil, Astropad Luna Display and Astropad Studio.
I use them and feel that together they are better than a Cintiq. Connection either via usb-c or wifi.

My youngest uses this one in a semi-professional setting: [smile.amazon.com]

It's no longer a sold model; this is its replacement: [smile.amazon.com]

Way back when, she used one of their screen-based models (Cintiq, 2013 model). It wasn't her cup of tea; she prefers drawing on the screen-less pad and viewing on her computer screen. (My sons use the screen-based one these days.)

FWIW, she also uses her older iPad Pro (12.9") and Apple Pencil with a drawing app called ProCreate these days. On her computer, she uses ClipStudio Paint (which she tells me frequently goes on sale).

Thank you, all!
She already has an iPad Pro on order so we'll see how that goes. Sounds promising.
