    yeah and im holding off until the product matures a bit. the 27 had a few updates to fix hardware issues when it came out and we all know how much wacom drivers suck

    Good luck if you ever see this thing in January. Wacom is notoriously late and I would think these guys would be in production by now. They arent even talking about them. A bad sign if you ask me.

    Just to add a little bit to the fire (as news has been sparse lately), I found a link to the official renders on reddit:
    [​IMG]

    Doing some pixel analysis, we note that the 24" version has larger proportional bezels (~22.8% of width) vs. the 32" (~14.5% of width).

    This gives an approximate width of 27.1" (24" model) and 32.6" (32" model) respectively.

    Comparing to the Dell Canvas:
    [​IMG]
    Dell Canvas KV2718D
    Dimension: 792 x 446 x 13-23 mm (31.2 x 17.6 x 0.51-0.9 in)
    Weight: 8.4 kg (18.5 lbs)

    and the 27QHD:
    [​IMG]
    Wacom 27QHD
    Dimensions: 770 x 465 x 54.5 mm
    (30.3 x 18.3 x 2.1 in)
    Weight: 9 kg (19.8 lbs) w/o stand; 25.1kg (55.1 lbs) w/stand

    ...we see that surprisingly the 32" Cintiq Pro isn't that much wider than the Dell Canvas / 27QHD and should take up only slightly larger desk space. (Hopefully, Wacom will be able to match the sub 1" thickness of the Dell and new Cintiq Pros.)

    This makes the 32" Cintiq quite a bit more attractive...I was originally thinking of replacing my 22HD with the Canvas, but I think I've found my new dream setup. ;)

    I have my doubts. Nothing from Wacom since the announcement. You would think they would be showing them off by now. The thing with Wacom is they never announce a delay. You are just stuck in limbo. Hopefully, they have something at CES.

    So CES is here and nada so far! What a strange company, announces a product so long ago and then just sits quiet!

    Unfortunatly, par for the course with Wacom. I knew the launch was in trouble when their FB page was empty during Decemeber. If they were ready to show it, they would have had it all over the place. Its Jan and no one has even seem a picture of them.

    Have they ever debuted a new product at CES?

    Wacom has always sort of done their own thing. Even when the Mobile Studio Pro technically made its debut at 2016 NYCC....they still annouced it online a week prior to the show.....and when I asked a Wacom rep in regards to the unveiling of the MSP.....they said getting it out to the public to demo so quickly after announcing it was very very un-wacom like.

    And this is just conjecture on my part.....but its always been my understanding that Wacoms......"Corporate" Sales are way prioritized over public/individual sale. Like an Animation studio that would buy thirty of the 30-incher Cintiqs would be their main focus over anything else. Its quite possible the device has already been unofficially released to specific/private markets who bought in bulk. And given how difficult it is to manufacture Pen/touch displays in the 20-30 inch range....even if it hasn't been released.....if their corporate/bulk orders (or pre-orders) are already dwarfing their ability to manufacture them.....they could be deliberately holding back the "Official" release until they have any stock left to sell to non-bulk orders.

    But in anycase.......between the long delayed release of the Stand for the MSP......the Mini-Express Key Remote which is clearly designed for the Cintiq Pro 13 & 16 which have been out for about a year.....the sale of the Current MSP on the Microsoft Store's website.....hinting at a possible MSP 2 or refresh....coupled with 24 & 32 inch Cintiq Pro......Wacom could be saving all these products for one big announcement.
