Wacom Cintiq 24HD Touch Review

Wacom-Cintiq-24HD-TouchThe Wacom Cintiq 24HD Touch is a touch enabled version of Wacom Cintiq 24HD pen. The design of the touch version is same as it was on the pen version. Same as the design the weight has also not changed.

As stated above the design is the same as the pen version, the only difference is that on the top of the display there is a button which turns touch function on and off, open up Express Key or control reminders and display the on screen keyboard.

The resolution of Wacom Cintiq 24HD touch is the same as the Cintiq 24HD pen, at 1920 x 1200. The brightness and contrast is prefect in every viewing angle, even the colors are well balanced. The pen is the same as the one used in the older version, the pen still has 10 replaceable tips.

Once you have unpacked the Wacom Cintiq 25HD touch, all you need to do in connect your DVI and USB cables and install the drivers.  To connect with a Mac’s Mini Display Port or the Thunderbolt Jack you would need a DVI adapter.

The configuring of the multi touch swipes, Express Keys and the pen actions can easily be done by going into the System Preference panel. On the penal you will find all the settings for pen click, touch or buttons.

The simple touch functions like pinch to zoom and rotation work flawlessly. The functions which require more than two fingers can be a bit difficult to master. The pen response is wonderful, whether it’s editing a photo or using the pen as brush.

To sum it all up, the Wacom Cintiq 24HD touch is a wonderful touch enabled device. As with most Wacom products the pen works like a charm. Even though the touch feature is a nice add-on, it is quite expensive compared to the non touch pen version. If you’re looking to draw with a pen and want touch enabled screen then Wacom Cintiq 24HD touch is perfect for you.
