now i know why all of the stores that carried the 21ux dropped their price from 2000 to 1700 these past weeks. Im kinda pissed I just bought a 21ux-dtk like 2 weeks ago. I only paid 1700 not the full 2000 but still i would have paid the extra 300 for a new model. oh well guess i bought it at a bad time. the 21ux will still serve its purpose.
there seems to be a large amount of customer base that likes to use the cintiq like a full desk. I prefer a different approach and would like to have them thin and light like their interactive display line only with a ips panel and more buttons and pressure.
nobody seems to want the line to head in that direction though.
I will never pay $3700 for a Cintiq unless it happens to be 20X30" to mimic large format canvas painting or something along those lines 6-7 years from now.
They have completely lost their mind. Sometimes I wonder: What The F#ck are they thinking....I can't believe it.
Seriously, my mouth fell open with nerve they had posting it on FB like, "Yeah, come and get it!" Hell's no.
What I don't get is why the had to jack the price so high for touch? Since the 24HD was already at $2600...I could see maybe raising it to $3000.....but an $1100 difference is nuts. And when you look at the price difference from Intuos 4 to Intuos 5....adding Touch to the Intuos didn't really nessesitate jacking the price significantly like the Cinitq.
True the 24HD touch has more colors and is brighter, but honestly those improvments should have been implimented long ago in the cintiq line.
Wacoms's highest price ever...and they'll still probablly sell a ton of them.
At least something good came out of this update. We got a Painter 12.2 update. No 64bit OSX patch, nope, that money was spent on Corel Cinco for the ipad. Me? i'm not mad...nope...not me.
one thing that seems incredibly corel to me is lack of default apple gesture compatibility.
adobe was showing multitouch demos since cs5 era (or even before that?) and supported mac gestures since day 1 in cs6
corel's implementation only supports wacom's hardware, nice gesture towards mac os users.
(they're working on it, to be completely fair, but they're working on 64 bit mac os update as well, which haven't surfaced in over a year since initial release.)

to make it a classy & unique lifestyle gadget rather than a reasonable working tool I suppose?
I still have no idea how they missed out printing "it's $ 4k, deal with it" in swarowsky on both front and back sides of the unit.
