The Wacom Cintiq 13HD features a compact, slim design but brings you high performance. Its interactive pen display allows you to create directly onto a 13.3” HD display. It offers you many advantages, like customizable ExpressKeys and the Rocker Ring for easy shortcut access. Its high resolution HD 1920 x 1080 LED display features a 178° viewing angle and renders 16.7 million colors.
The detachable stand adjusts to three different working angles and you can also use the Cintiq 13HD flat on your desktop or in your lap. Wacom’s powerful new Pro Pen with 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity, tilt recognition, and a more comfortable, ergonomic design provides precise control and a better feel than ever. The new Pro Pen comes in a compact carrying case that includes storage for the extra nibs and color rings that help you easily personalize and identify your pen. The Cintiq 13HD experience starts right away – with a new, simple setup. The convenient new 3-in-1 (HDMI, USB 2.0 and AC Power) cable reduces clutter and makes setup on any Mac or PC a snap.
It works fine
Pros: Very crisp images.
Cons: Rocker ring sucks. The scroll wheel/touch strip on other Wacom products is vastly superior. Changing my brush size is a bit of a hassle now. But, I knew this when purchasing it and it's definitely not a deal breaker.
Other Thoughts: I work as an digital artist doing paintings and more flat style work. This product is my first Cintiq and I do not regret it one bit.

A disappointing buy.
Pros: Beautifully clear and crystalline display.
Cons: Suffers a crippling bug for many users on 64bit Windows 7/8 with all versions of Photoshop CS: A 'pressure sensitivity bug' where the stylus suddenly and randomly stops registering stylus opacity and flow settings. The problem has existed for over a year with many different models of the Cintiq but Wacom has yet to fix it.
Other Thoughts: This was supposed to be an upgrade from my Intuous3. The price was steep, but is downright unexcusable considering product-breaking issues with the Cintiq that have yet to be fixed.

Wacom Is Cheap and the Consumer Pays The Price
Pros: - Great product from a conceptual perspective.
Cons: - Poorly designed cable port. It's likely to break if bumped the wrong way.
Other Thoughts: I'm a first time Wacom user and honestly should have done my research before buying the 13HD. I would have discovered that they have been dealing with scratching on their displays for years now. That being said, it blows my mind how they can get away with providing a high end product like the Cintiq without combating known issues like scratching with industry proven technologies like Corning Gorilla Glass. It reeks of negligence and is an insult to the consumer. The fact of the matter is, by releasing the 13HD as it is designed, Wacom has proven that they are cheap and aren't willing to change until they are forced by a competitor. However, without any competitors in sight, this might be a long journey for the consumer. Unfortunately for Wacom, they very well might push away their own consumers instead of building brand loyalty.
