Cintiq 27 Pro = fewer driver features

Postby cartoonmonkeystudio » Mon 28. Nov 2022, 08:35

What is up with the switch to the new Wacom Center and taking away features that existed for aeons on all previous models?

For the price the 27 pro sells for, I would not expect downgraded features like this in the driver control panel.

Missing: Inset area
For example, with monitor / desktop switching, you could define an inset area so that your wrist doesn't have to travel across the entire Cintiq screen when navigating your 2nd display with the pen. That feature is totally missing now. Gone.

Missing: calibration! Wacom says that it's "not necessary" as they've made the layer even thinner. I would still like the option to calibrate the pen myself. Another feature taken away.

And with hardware...

Eraser on the pen! Gone! Couldn't have included this in the new slim pen? I've had erasers on my Wacom stylus since the early 90's. Sad to see it axed in development. Should be a premium thing that stays.

All this said, I know this is sold as a reference monitor, and the 120hz thing is great and all.. but Wacom you are really losing me here on pricing and the combination of taking away features I've used for years.

A really good 27" monitor runs between $300 - $500 after tax

A cintiq 27 with the required stand costs $6000 after tax

No, that isn't a typo.

Whoever is paying that price has totally lost their mind
