Default Wacom Cintiq

http://www.wacom.com/cintiq/index.cfm

Have you guys ever used one of these before or played with it somewhere? I'm just wondering how good the resolution/color is on this thing compared to my NEC MultiSync FE2111 sb which can't be drawn on.

I was thinking of finding a used one and play with it instead of a small lap wacom pad. Any comments?

Even a used Cintiq is going to set you back around 1500GBP which is a lot of money to fork out for something to play with, they are pretty neat though!

Unless you particularly need a Cintiq or have the money to spare, I would probably suggest saving a bunch of cash and upgrading to a TFT monitor (200-400) reclaiming the hectaire of desk space that your 22" CRT is consuming and get a normal wacom which will sit nicely in your newly acquired desk space, spending 150-300 will get you something more than adequate.

Take it easy,

Mat.

Never used one, but I did see an article of someone using a tablet laptop to sculpt in Z brush, think the guy said that it was very interactive and a good experiance!

yeah i saw the same video. It looked awesome. I don't know, I might just get one when I get money. The tablet is kind of annoying to use. either way though, I have to get one or the other and listen to matt and get the TFT instead. Might need a new desk too though haha....
