So my faithful Intuos 4 finally keeled over and died and I’m trying to figure out what to do. I’ve been meaning to get a Cintiq since Ive been making money now, but still, 1k is a whopping hefty price to pay….
Help me figure out a plan of action!?
1. Replacement parts: The cord is the part that finally killed it, so I considered getting a replacement cord. However, the amazon reviews for replacement cords are shady as hell and other parts of my tablet previously also suffer a bunch of problems, particularly the pen breaking into pieces periodically, and unreliable pen pressure. So I was thinking about getting a new pen, but that alone is 80 bucks+ when….
2. I could get a new, cheaper tablet (Wacom Bamboo Capture at $70) to hold me over until I’m 100% sure I want to get a cintiq. I’ve been hogging my roommate’s and it works ok.
3. Shell out the $1000 for the Cintiq. However I’m concerned about space since I’m still living in a cramped, messy college apartment. I also want something portable.
Suggestions would be appreciated! Im pretty indecisive about this…
