How am I getting on with the Cintiq?
When I originally set up the Cintiq the main problem I had was trying to match the pen tip to the actual drawn line. I didn't think that I could get used to drawing if they didn't match up. When you ink in with a brush you are watching the very trip of the brush. Now, it's not so much of a problem as you soon get used to watching the cursor rather that the pen tip. Don't worry about getting them to line up - they won't!
One final problem that I hear about is Lag. You draw a line and a couple of seconds later it appears! I've not had that problem much, (only occasionally), and I think it's probably down to how powerful your computer is. On the good side, it does speed up your workflow (eventually), and it's much more natural drawing with a pen than a mouse. This brief review, (Cintiq 24HD), probably won't make it onto the Wacom website but these are points here that are important to artists and these are the observations of someone who has never used a tablet before.
