    Now that Wacom has entered the 1080p budget market with the 16" - the alternatives have to really up their game. All good for the customer so I'll be interested to see how this tablet's performance stands up against the cheaper Cintiq.

    And Wacom makes another supprising move. They now have a 22-inch Cintiq (Non Pro)

    Compared to the old pricing back when the $2k 21ux and the 1K 12wx were a thing.....$1200 for a 22-inch isn't that bad I guess....but it has the same specs as the 16-incher...same screen res too....and still no express keys or Multi-touch This also doesn't have built in legs like the 16....but presumably the stand comes with it I guess?

    And here's Lisa's look:


    I am a little disappointed at no laminated screen and somewhat bulky backside:

    If Dell can make a 27" drawing monitor like this while hitting 280 nits, why does Wacom need something that thick with fan grills to only hit 210 nits? :confused:

    Still, I'm glad Wacom is reacting...hopefully Wacom will be the one to introduce touch models (prompting Chinese makers to follow suit) and then we can all enjoy the full, low-cost drawing experience. :D

    Really useful review - especially now Wacom has produced the Wacom ONE. The 4K main iMac monitor connected to an HD Cintiq exposes the shortcomings above 16 inches for someone whose living is made doing comic art and I love the line "this was within my budget."
    It really is important to have a higher resolution second screen - and in this case makes sense as I would never watch movies or video on a graphic tscreen display - especially if it has coatings or etching applied.
