There were zero dead pixels on this rig. Be sure to test this when you set it up for the first time. There are tests online to help you check any monitor.
Good Lord this thing is Big, I mean Huge. I have a 22HD touch, but this thing dwarfs that. Videos do not do it any justice. Rest assured, you will have plenty of drawing and editing surface.
Through some technical magic, Wacom was able to trim the fat and keep this giant under 20 lbs. so current Ergotron users have nothing to worry about (except buying an inexpensive adapter--skip to the end for more information about that).
So far, I have used and played with Painter, PhotoShop, games, Maya, and Office, and browsed a bunch. Turned the remote off, on, and charged it, hooked up passports, iPads, etc. to the handy USB 3 ports, and more. Nothing seems to interfere with this thing's operation (Though I doubt I will actually keep anything plugged into these ports except the remote when it is charging--since this would create some awkward moments when rotating the monitor.)
The touch feature is as solid on this Cintiq as it is on my 22HDT
The huge bezel is actually a great design feature. It provides a place to grab and hold the device (I have mine on an Ergotron LX arm) while drawing. It also (since it's metal) seems to be helping to keep the surface cool. This is the coolest (temperature wise) Cintiq I have owned.
Solid, easy to use, and elegant. I am enjoying this new feature immensely. Sticks to the side and stays there, regardless of the angle (well up until the monitor is straight up and down anyway). It is solid and a joy to use. I really like this latest feature since you would have to go out of your way to accidently hit buttons and sliders. If the choice was to either include this remote or include a stand (in order to keep the price low), then I am glad they included the remote.
Say goodbye to the 3-in-one cable, ALL cables are completely swappable!:
You can now have cables of any length if you want.
As mentioned by others, the power cord (from the monitor to the brick) is annoyingly short. There is no way this wasn't noticed during prototyping. I have velcro'ed the brick under the desk top since I don't want a 1-2 lb weight dangling over the edge and pulling constantly on the Cintiq's connector. Horrible design flaw in my opinion (especially since I have a standing desk).
No "real" mount included (This CON has no effect on me since I use Ergotron Mounts, but it might irritate other buyers).
Once you use touch monitors (I mean really use them), it's tough to go back. The ability to zoom, pan, and rotate the screen with your fingers is hard to beat, especially when you can do all three at the SAME time.
(For those experiencing pen and touch issues, please see the latest updates in the EDIT section below)
Some users seem to be experiencing a few issues with the latest set of drivers. For example, touch or pen input turning off and an occasional frozen cursor. However, I have not experienced any of these issues.
For my setup, the drivers and software have performed flawlessly.
I have the 27QHDT set up as my primary (default) and number "1" monitor (in a 2 monitor setup), using the Display port on a GTX 780 installed on a Windows 8.1, 4th Gen i7 6-core CPU with 32 GBs of RAM. The second monitor is an 22" Acer IPS touch screen.
How hot does it get?
For me, the original 21UX was the hottest. Long painting sessions could be uncomfortable.
But both the 22 and 27-inch siblings seem cooler to the touch than the 21UX's, even though they are brighter. I believe these latter models were designed with better cooling schemes than the earlier versions.
What is the screen's antiglare scheme like?
A LOT of people complained about the "grainy" quality of the anti-glare screen on the 22HD/T. Personally, I can't understand why people complain about it. It's only an issue when you are displaying one-color (or mostly one color). Once you get painting, video editing, gaming, or actually Doing Anything with it, you simply won't notice the anti-glare coating.
That said, my new 27QHDT has an anti-glare screen on it that is far less noticeable even when displaying just one color (which does make it easier for the online tests to find any dead pixels).
In order of preference, I prefer the surface texture of the first production run of the 21UX the most. But then Wacom went to a harder "glass" surface in future models of the 21UX and (to me) they were too slippery. The newer glass surfaces did not reproduce the feeling of drawing on paper like the original 21UX's. When the 22HD came out, it was a little better (texture wise). The surface of the 22HD creates a little friction (or resistance) on the pen. The 27QHD has less friction and feels more like the slick glass surfaces of late-model 21UX's.
So, surface texture wise (in my opinion), I would say the early 21UX > 22HD touch > 27QHD touch.
As far as scratches, I have been fairly rough on every one of my Cintiqs (I have personally owned 5 Cintiqs over the years--21UX(X2), 12SW, 22HDT, and now the 27QHDT) and have never gotten a scratch. The nibs can leave behind residue (for those really violent painting sessions) and they can look like scratches, but they clean off with some gentle soap and water. DO NOT use solvents on these monitors, use Gentle hand soap (and only a little) when cleaning these surfaces.
If you are actually scratching the surface, be sure you are replacing your nibs. I go through one every 3-6 months (sometimes more). As a general rule, if a flat face forms on your nib, replace it.
Like I said earlier, this thing is freaky huge.
The 22 HD is a lot easier to work with actually. It's odd, but so far the 27 may be a bit too large. Though that might just require some time to get used to.
Some assembly required:
You need to know right now that you will almost certainly need a stand, preferable the Ergotron sit/stand arm (with a VESA 200mm to 100mm adapter) or the Ergotron LX model (also with the same adaptor). Many artists swear by these stands.
Some people have received remotes that were not fully "clicked" together. You may have to squeeze the two halves together to ensure the remote lays flat on your screen.
All of the Cons are little more than a short-lived annoyance to me. Once I purchased the adaptor (for my mount) and took care of the brick, all that was left is the amazing 27 QHDT.
The 27 QHD/T Cintiq is a far more worthy candidate to carry the king-of-the-hill torch than was the 24HD/T--a model I skipped entirely (primarily for it's huge bulk and lack of mobility).
I highly recommend this product!
EDIT: I am adding some useful Wacom Cintiq troubleshooting tips for Windows users since several people seem to be having issues.
To ensure you are not having Wacom Driver conflicts caused by older drivers (for those upgrading monitors), be sure you:
1. Unplug the Cintiq's USB, THEN remove/uninstall the drivers (unplugging the USB keeps the old drivers from reinstalling)
2. Shut down the computer completely.
3. Plug the Cintiq's USB back in, restart your computer and download the latest drivers from Wacom's site.
Remember to do this every time you update the Wacom drivers.
TO FIX PEN OR TOUCH ON THE WRONG MONITOR IN WINDOWS:
Windows settings are usually the culprit and not the Wacom Drivers.
Make sure pen and touch features settings are turned on in Windows:
1. Control Panel --> Programs and Features -- > Turn Windows Features on or off
2. Place a check next to the Tablet PC Components to turn on the "Tablet" pen hand writing system.
(NOTE: Depending on how you set up Windows, you may have to search with in the control panel's search window for "windows features")
To fix touch and pen on the wrong monitor:
1. Go back to the Control Panel and search for "calibrate".
2. Select "Calibrate the screen for pen or touch input".
3. Follow the prompts
To adjust settings:
1.Go to Control Panel and search for "Touch".
2.Click "Tablet PC Settings"
3.Click "Setup..." to the right of "Configure your pen and touch displays"
Follow the prompts to configure and save your pen and touch settings.
To calibrate (aka fix touch and pen on the wrong monitor):
1. Click Start and then Control Panel, and then select Hardware and Sound.
2. Under Tablet PC Settings, tap "Calibrate the screen for pen or touch input."
3. On the Display tab, under Display options, tap Calibrate and then Yes to allow the program to make changes.
To change pen and touch settings In Windows 7:
1. Go to your control panel and click on the "Pen and Touch" icon.
2. In the "Pen Options" tab, click "Start Tablet PC Input Panel" and click on settings.
I hope this helps those with pen and touch issues.
Don't get me wrong, for the tablet and display, this thing is a MONSTER. It's fluid, amazing to use and it's just nothing short of awe inspiring! The screen is super sharp and the usable space is far, far better than previous iterations. That said, it has some really odd shortfalls.
* Unlike previous Wacom Cintiqs the 27QHD *DOES NOT* come with a stand. To get a stand, you need to purchase the "Cintiq 27QHD Ergo Stand", a $399 accessory. All previous Cintiqs included the stand in the box. This is basically a cost saving method, but it really just pushes the extra costs to the consumer and hampers usability of the device for many.
* They changed the position of the mounting holes for those using monitor arms. This was likely done to spread out the load on the back of the monitor (and that's fine) but until you get the device in-hand you may not be aware of the change. Many Cintiq artists pair the tablet with an Ergotron LX arms (arguably one of the best monitor arms you can get). While the Ergotron LX arm fully supports the size and weight of the 27QHD, it doesn't match up with the new mounting holes. You'll need an additional third party bracket to properly mount it (again, like the absent stand, another added expense to an already pricey product).
To fix that you can get a bracket/mounting adapter (about $20) such as this one:
Arrowmounts AM-201D Vesa 400 x 200 Adapter Plate for Wall Mounts AM-201D/13-36 (Black)
Works like a charm.
* The power brick's cable is far, far too short. If you're mounting the Cintiq or using the $399 stand the brick can hanging in the air instead of resting comfortable on the ground. This is a weird (and poor) design choice. Why is the power brick not able to reach the ground? This makes cable management a pain (especially if you have an arm). It seems like the reason for this is that, unlike previous Cintiqs, all of the cables go out of a small hole in the top of the device, NOT the bottom. You lose about a foot and a half of reach, and it seems like Wacom forgot to compensate for that change.
Seriously, dangling power bricks are NOT a great thing (and this won't apply to everyone, the fact it CAN happen is not a good thing). Wacom really needs to lengthen the cable in future revisions.
* All the cables (power, video, USB) are now easily swappable. Hurray! This is a good thing. They're all standard USB, HDMI, Displayport along with the power adapter. In the event a cable gets damaged you can finally swap out the single cable instead of having to send the entire Cintiq back for repair. MUCH better than previous gen models. The downside (yes, there is one) is that they're hidden behind plastic housing... and if you have the monitor mounted you have to completely dismount the monitor just to swap a single cable. Big bonus for finally including this, but they did it in an awkward way at the same time.
TL;DR: As a tablet the 27QHD is nothing short of amazing. As a flagship Cintiq for a new generation, there's been some money saving techniques employed that end up hurting artists buy forcing them to shell out more money in order to get the same functionality previous ones did.
My 27QHD also arrived with about 5 dead pixels... and odd blurry smudge behind the screen that takes up about a 3x3 pixel area.
EDIT: The included driver (v6.3.10) and the current downloadable (v6.3.11w3) don't seem to work properly with the 27QHD. I can't update/manage the Display settings, and no matter what configuration I try, the touch settings always defaults to my main monitor, not the Cintiq.
EDIT 2: The express key remote control is definitely useful, but I can't get it to stay connected to the stay on the screen. It's magnetized on the bottom and just "connects" to the sides of the Cintiq, but no matter where I put it, the remote slides down and eventually falls off the Cintiq without fail.
