The Wacom Cintiq 24HD, Cintiq 21UXCintiq 12WX and the latest model, the Cintiq 24HD Multi-Touch, are considered the top of the line models for any graphic professional. I highly recommend these tablets for people who work on illustrations, animations or Photoshop daily. If you do not, I strongly urge you to consider a Wacom Bamboo or Intuos4 instead. Both of those links will take you to my reviews of those tablets. Reviews of the new Cintiq 24HD Multi-Touch screen will be posted soon!

The main differences between the Cintiq 24HD, 21UX and 12WX tablets are:

  • Physical and active screen size
  • Number of Touch Strips and ExpressKeys
  • Number of nibs
  • Resolution
  • Pressure sensitivity
  • Price

What’s the same?

  • Grip pen that has an eraser.
  • Ability to rotate
  • Pen and display stands included

Since the three don’t have much in common, it all boils down to size really. Based on my reviews, I think you’ll find it easier to decide which Wacom Cintiq to buy.
