Video Review – Wacom 27QHD Touch

Here is my video review of the Wacom 27QHD Touch. You can find the written review here. The written review contains some additional information and links. Please take a look!
I’m giving the 27QHD a 9 out of 10 due to touch not working as well as it should. If touch worked as well as the Companion, […]

Wacom Cintiq 27QHD Touch – A Second Look

I finally decided to take the plunge and purchased a 27QHD. I know for many, myself included, the high price tag is very intimidating. I think that was the only reason it took me so long to purchase one. Luckily Wacom now offers financing options, which can put […]

Wacom Cintiq 27QHD

27QHD...look at the size of that thing!
I just spent the last six weeks creating concepts for WotC, three of which were done on-site. During my final week I was able to work on a new 27QHD. I was able to clock 40 hours of testing on the 27QHD, so I feel pretty confident with my review.

Litup LP3 – Review

Litup LP3
This is the light box I wish I had back in school. The light box I used back at the Academy of Art University was small and about as thick as a brick. The Litup LP3 is extremely thin and has an active area of 16.93x12.2. Plus you have to admit, it looks pretty […]

Wacom Companion – Screen Protectors

Photo from
Now that the Companion has been out for more than a year, companies have started making screen protectors for it. When I first purchased the Companion, there weren't any screen protectors available, so I had to risk scratching my screen. I'm always super careful with my things, so I went about 7 […]

Not too long ago I was contacted about testing out a new glove designed for CG artists called the DokiGlove.
This glove was designed to eliminate oil from your screen surface and continue cleaning the surface at the same time. It is also supposed to act as a sports compression, offering […]

Huion GT-220 - Claptrap wants to know what all the fuss is about. (Claptrap not included)
Not too long ago Huion contacted me and asked if I would be willing to review their upcoming GT-220 if they shipped a unit to me. I had never heard of Huion before, but the products on their site […]

Wacom Companion – Update

I approve.
I've been using my Wacom Companion daily for all of my professional work for the past 6 months, so I figured it would be a good time to make an update.
My first written review can be found here and the video review can be found here. I might make an updated video […]

Wacom Companion

I wasn't expecting to receive my Wacom Companion until after I returned to California, but I received an e-mail from Wacom saying they shipped my tablet.
It was like waking up on Christmas morning to find out your parents bought you a pony, a diamond pony. I've never owned a diamond pony but I imagine […]

Table of Tablets

A lot of people have been posting about the new Wacom Companion and Companion Hybrid. Price is a big issue that I see in every discussion, so I compared some of the more popular tablet PCs. I tried to be as accurate as possible, although finding info about pressure levels can be a little tricky. […]
