I'm just curious guys, has this move by Wacom seriously put it in the "good value" camp for you guys? It may be because I'm a cheapo , but I take a look at the UGEE UM16 for ¥1299.00 (works out to ~$192), which I'm 95% certain has the exact same display as Cintiq 16. Then I compare it to the $649 and I can't help but feel Wacom is still bloody expensive! Having owned both Cintiqs and UGEEs, I'm not sure the "transitioning-to-pro" artist would actually notice the difference, unless they specifically used features like tilt/rotation. Isn't the over $450 markup still a pretty hefty "Wacom tax"?
