If you are a professional artist that needs to retouch stills or video or draw from scratch, the Wacom Cintiq 12WX's price is peanuts. It saves so much time and could make the job so much more precise and better that it will pay off in a few hours of work. In other words, if you do this for a living and don't get one of these, you will be wasting your money. ... I can tell you that you won't be able to go back to a regular graphic tablet or, God forbid, a mouse. The two-year guarantee just sweetens the deal even more. quote

The Wacom Cintiq 12wx is all about productivity, and here the Cintiq shines. At $999 it won't fit into everyone's budget, but if you're a pro and spend your non-shooting hours editing images, the Cintiq will pay for itself in short order.

Almost everything I read in every review of the Cintiq 12WX ended up being true. (1) There are way, way too many cords. It is not a portable device. You'll get sick of carrying from room-to-room in about a day. (2) The pen tracking gets super-funky near the edges. It's okay if...
