Wacom Cintiq Pro 27 review: a pricey pen display for pros

Wacom Cintiq Pro 27: two-minute review

Weighing in at a hefty 15.8lbs (7.2kg) and with a 26.9-inch UHD display, the Wacom Cintiq Pro 27 pen display makes an immediate impression out of the box. Designed specifically for use in professional settings, Wacom’s largest pen display more closely resembles a computer monitor than a traditional graphics tablet.

This doesn’t appear to be accidental, as it offers a number of features and attributes that are more typically found in PC gaming monitors, such as refresh rates up to 120Hz and a 10ms response time. While this helps the Cintiq Pro 27 to effectively double as a monitor for use beyond graphic design, it doesn’t come with any sacrifice to its functionality as a pen display.
