Wacom Cintiq 24HD touch review: the pen-enabled display tacks on multi-touch gestures

Summary

The touch model adds gestures to the highly capable Cintiq 24HD pen display, but we aren't so sure that they're worth the extra investment.

Wacom outs the Cintiq 24HD touch, adds multi-touch controls and more to its largest pen display

Wacom Cintiq 24HD hands-on

A few weeks ago, Wacom started shipping a new version of its Cintiq 24HD pen display for creative pros that first broke from cover last September. The appropriately named Cintiq 24HD touch carries virtually the same outer styling as the OG model. An ergonomic base still cradles the massive 24-inch screen and can be configured to your particular seating preference. On the inside, though, there's a host of changes. As the name suggests, the major difference between the two is the addition of multi-touch controls to the more recent offering. However, the added functionality does come with a pretty hefty price tag, as the Cintiq 24HD touch costs $1,100 more than its elder sibling. Are the additions of touch gestures and an improved display panel enough to justify forking over the extra coin, or will the less expensive option work just fine in a studio setting? Read on to find out as we tackle that very question.
