Going on near a decade of hard use

Strengths of the product
- Nearly Indestructible Screens (DO NOT LET CHILDREN TEST THIS BECAUSE THEY WILL GOUGE IT) - Last Forever, my personal Cintiq is over 6 years old and is used every day for photoshop - Lengthy Warrenty via manufacturer, just in case. - Good color and a very high range of calibration options. For Professional Web Work I recommend color match software and hardware - sturdy angle adjustment. For professionals I suggest the 80° setting, but the mounts let you work any angle.
Weaknesses of the product
- Warm. While they never overheat they will run the room temperature up, this is due to your PC cooling itself from the memory/graphics load and the light warmth of the screen. - Wacom Driver Updates. These can mess with Windows 10 features such as pen and touch settings and will give you a headache. Disable as many Win 10 features as needed. - Allows only 1 Tablet interface. Your Cintiq Driver will hate any secondary touch hardware drivers you attempt to install or have in your history. This takes a LOT of cleanup - Hard to ship in the event something breaks. Wacom has very few stores to ship to for product repair or replacement
So much better than an intuos tablet. I've tried several generations of tablets. the early 2010 wacom tablets (which had scratch vulnerabilities), the intuos small, medium and large, and the bamboo (which was garbage). None of those products compare to the pleasure of drawing directly on screen nor to the pen response and pressure. I suggest an intuos small for mobile use and a cintiq for professional use.
