Wacom's Cintiq 18SX Display Enhances Creativity and Productivity

Wacom Cintiq 18sx

 

If you're already used to drawing on a tablet, you may not need the Cintiq 18SX's extra functionality. Like drawing on a piece of paper, using the Cintiq has drawbacks--your hand often gets in the way of what you're drawing, for example. But if you're...

Wacom Cintiq 18sx

 

Last October I reviewed Wacom's Cintiq 15x, the company's least expensive and most impressive pressure-sensitive tablet combined with an LCD screen. It took me about a day of testing it to realize that I couldn't live without it for my graphics work....

Wacom Cintiq: Drawing on Graphic Experience

 

The Cintiq is not Wacom's first combination tablet/LCD device, but with a large, bright screen, natural-feeling drawing surface, and innovative stand, the $1,899 Cintiq is the first one good enough to make you consider skipping a mortgage payment to...

Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 review

 

We take the latest super-sized addition to the Cintiq family for a spin.

4K UHD display ; Touch functionality ; Larger screen size

Ergo Stand supplied separately

Providing both a larger screen and UHD ready resolution, the Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 is the upgrade users have been waiting for.

Review: Wacom Cintiq Pro

 

Wacom has pushed the boundaries again with its Cintiq Pro 13 and 16-inch graphics tablets.

Excellent resolution ; Good colour accuracy ; Wacom Pro Pen 2 is comfortable and accurate

Built-in legs are good but not adjustable ; For physical buttons you must purchase the remote

It was hard to imagine where improvements could be made to this kind of technology, but Wacom has managed it, with a more natural experience, on a beautifully crafted device that has a much better screen than previous models.

Product Specifications

Wacom's Cintiq interactive pen displays combine the advantages of an LCD monitor with the control, comfort, and productivity of Wacom's patented pressure-sensitive tablet technology. When you're using a Cintiq you apply the pen directly to the screen. This lets you take advantage of your natural hand-eye coordination to work quickly and intuitively in any software application. Whether you're editing video, retouching photos, giving a presentation, or annotating electronic documents a Cintiq puts you in direct control. You even have direct control of your configuration because your Cintiq will work seamlessly with your existing mouse or Wacom tablet and can be installed as a single monitor or as part of a multi-monitor combination. Wacom's Cintiq interactive pen displays offer everyone from designers and engineers to doctors and educators a powerful and intuitive new way to work on their computers. Cintiq 18SX is an 18-inch SXGA full 24-bit color LCD monitor, with a 360 degrees rotating stand, and an ergonomically designed Grip Pen. With a large active area, Cintiq 18SX provides the ultimate human machine interface for creative computing, allowing users to interact directly with images, video, and electronic documents faster, more intuitively and without any confusing hand-eye coordination.
