My Wacom Cintiq 20WSX turns one year old today!
It has not been a bump-free ride. I previously wrote about my issues here. For some strange reason, something in Apple Software Update 10.5.2 and onwards caused it and my Mac Pro to kernel panic. It was not until software version 10.5.5 that these issues almost completely disappeared.
Other than that, it has been a joy to use, especially with my current animation project which needed a lot of hand drawn characters! I could not imagine ever working with a regular tablet again!
Curiously, this version of the Cintiq has been discontinued; only the flagship 21″ and the smaller, more portable 12″ remains. Wierd.
Anyway, I’ve been juggling with the idea of keeping this unit after the end of it’s lease life. That will be in another two years. Either that or I will upgrade to the flagship version, just to see if the issues I once had in this version will also appear in that version (which, should that ever happen, only proves that it was 10.5.2 that broke them both). I’ll be sure to write a post about it.
