Review on Wacom DTK1660K0A Cintiq 16 Drawing Tablet: A Powerful Screen-based Sketching Tool by Janis Liekmanis ᠌

Revainrating 4 out of 5

I like everything, the quality is good, the price is reasonable.

If you are ready to endure constant slight recalibration at the edges, uneven illumination of the matrix, if size and mobility are important to you and you don’t have extra money, seriously consider Chinese counterparts. They are already breathing hotly into the back of the head, especially for its budget models. If color rendition and color gamut are not very important for you, but pro pen 2 is right for you and your budget allows - cintiq 16 is good.

  • Compared with the Chinese counterpart Huion Kamvas 16 Pro 1 - Build quality (although the Chinese have no problems with this) 2 - Accuracy of calibrating the position of the pen 3 - Soft (it's stupidly better) 4 - Excellent pen Pro Pen 2 (also in no comparison with Chinese) 5 - Smooth illumination of the matrix
  • Also in comparison with Huion Kamvas 16 Pro Matrix afterglow (And this is just a shameful story for a monitor of this level). If you keep a static image on the monitor, for example, a program interface, then it then remains imprinted on the matrix and slowly fades away. In order for the afterglow to remain, it is enough to hold the image for several minutes (15-20). The Chinese don't have that. The color reproduction of the matrix is ​​​​worse (but the uneven illumination of the Huion matrix spoils this advantage a little) Dimensions (you can put a Chinese in a backpack with a 15'6 laptop, it won't work with a vacom, it's three times thicker in the thickest part, a few centimeters longer on the short side, though a little shorter on the long side) Feeling the contact of the pen with the glass (my subjective feeling of the Chinese is more pleasant) Monitor settings (the Chinese has more settings, the menu is more convenient, the Wakom has three temperature settings and CustomRGB + brightness) Parallax (it is, although small, the Chinese are almost indistinguishable) No spare tips included Lack of buttons on the monitor (I don’t really need them, but the Chinese have it, the Wakom doesn’t, so .) Price (Chinese is half the price)
