I'm considering getting a Wacom Cintiq as part of a dual monitor setup. The Cintiq combines a tablet with an LCD so you can draw right on the monitor with a Wacom pen.

I'm thinking of getting the 18sx. I've only used a small Wacom tablet. I'd love to hear anyone's opinion on whether they think this would be helpful for them or not and why.

Also, if anyone has one, needless to say i'd love to hear what your experience is!!

I don't have one and I'm a bit jealous. I'd always thought you'd use the Cintique near flat so I'd never imagined it as part of a dual monitor setup.

One comment I have heard ages ago was that some people were uncomfortable with them because the stylus is separated from the picture and there is a parallax error because of this.

I'd definitely try before you buy!
