Hey everyone, So after many years (2013) of loyal service I gave my Wacom Cintiq 13hd a bath (F&*ing water bottle lid came off in my bag). This thing got me my Honors Degree from Monash university and built my folio to get me employed. Not to mention all the personal projects over the years I have used it for. I am gutted really, and is the first piece of tech I have owned that died because of my own error (my fault for putting my bottle in the same space as my tech). Here's a couple of time lapses of work I did on it. Everyone put your hands on your Hearts and give a moment of silence to my lost friend, may she rest in Silicon heaven for eternity. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4UvKv0t7fw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4E4ZnPeWDU Anyway enough sobbing. After much deliberation, I decided I wouldnt replace it with a Cintiq but roll the dice and pick up a cheaper alternative. http://www.xp-pen.com/goods/show/id/187.html Picked it up here. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/XP-Pen-A...et-Monitor-Graphics-Pen-Display-/122378299025 Also for 18% off due to the ebay birthday sale. So I got it for $541AUD Incredible!!!!!! I was considering the new Cintiq Pro 16 which has a much nicer display and 4k. And could have gotten it for $1600. But Wacom will be releasing a 24" pro version next year and I will be waiting for that and forking out the $$$$ for that. The XP Pen seems to be the best cintiq alternative yet from the reviews I have watched (I have watched alot over the years of cintiq copies). And has the big plus of having express keys and is Vesa Mountable!!!! Being Vesa mountable is a big draw card. Since I dont have alot of desk space throwing it on an arm so I can swing it out of the way is a huge bonus. Once the unit arrives I will do a review for people considering picking a cintiq/wacom/or otherwise up. At the price, if its as good as the reviews lead me to believe it could be the best choice for students, amateurs, and professionals that need a home unit. Anyway stay tuned Creative people.
