That being said I have had an immensely frustrating experience with this product that's led me to heavily considering returning it. I don't have room for a tablet display on my desk and the Cintiq 16 has a 75mm VESA pattern on the back where the similarly specced and priced Pro 13 doesn't. Multiple Wacom sponsored reviews mentioned that this display was VESA mountable as well so that was enough to tip me towards this model. I go to attach it to my monitor arm and the standard screws don't go in all the way. I'm completely lost why this and only by accident while looking for why this is do I stumble across Amazon's listing for the optional stand which happens to have a single line about VESA arm mounting. So I go back and scour the Amazon listing and Wacom's product page and there's barely a mention of this stand let alone that it would be required because it might come with a 2mm spacer. If you have no intention of ever buying that stand you wouldn't even have ever looked at it to know that was the case (and even then it's still not super clear). An $80 accessory, that's back ordered for 2-3 months, is required to use the otherwise standard mounting points of the completely flat backed display that has no reason to require that.
My other large gripe is one that can't be fixed with an additional accessory because there isn't one. I like the idea of the 3 in 1 cable overall but when it's less than 6 feet long it's kind of limiting. It would barely reach from where my computer is on one side of my desk to where the arm is on the other if I was running the cable around the back of my desk with all the others. At that point forget even being able to swing it around in front of me without buying third party extensions for the USB and HDMI and hoping for the best. Conversely the three parts of the power cable (3 in 1, brick, wall cable) are roughly 15-18 feet total. I don't understand why in a premium product where home and professional use cases are going to vary greatly Wacom couldn't even offer a 10' version of the cable or gone with the USB-C interface they have on other models.
These oversights, which I know will be issues for other people with similar setups, are just that much more frustrating and disappointing when after waiting two weeks for the tablet to finally ship it actually lives up to that Wacom drawing performance you expect. I can't try to use it in my lap for two to three months though and it's enough to make the product potentially unusable if your setup doesn't accommodate that. So again this is not a reflection on the tablet's drawing capabilities but in the overall disappointment in the experience of the whole product and how it works, or doesn't, for me in the context of these unfortunate decisions by Wacom.
Surface feel of the screen is so much better than my Apple Pencil and iPad Pro. I won't say there's paperlike resistance, but it's not as smooth as glass. It's just right for me.
The new pen has a LOT more sensitivity than the old pens. I didn't think that would matter to me until I experienced it. I typically turn my pressure sensitivity down, so I don't have to push as hard... but that means I get more precision within that range! It's amazing.
There's no touch input, but that's fine for me.
The screen size is actually perfect for my needs. It's only 1920x1080 but that works for me because my laptop can't output higher.
It's not a super bright monitor and I feel like it works best in a room with indirect lighting - not a bright, sunlit room.
I didn't buy the stand but the included legs are enough. (Make sure you open them until they snap into place - they should open slightly outward, or else you haven't gone far enough.)
Sometimes I use it flat against the desk.
The size is such that it makes it easier to use my keyboard in addition to the Cintiq. I used to have a really large Cintiq that was nice but it felt too big.
I rated the screen a 5, but that's a 5 for the price. I'm sure the higher end screens have more accurate color, but this works for me.
Basically I own the iPad Pro 12.9 and Apple Pencil and this -- and I use this more.
Oh - there IS a little parallax. I had to mess with the calibration in the settings to get it "just right" for me, but I'm used to it now. Just expect some. It's probably somewhere between 1/16th and 1/8th of an inch, but not enough to be a problem or really annoy me.
Bottom line -- this might be a downgrade for someone coming from a higher end Cintiq, but it's a HUGE upgrade from someone coming from an Intuos tablet. I'm happy with the purchase.

I have used a WACOM pen tablet for years for my photo art in Photoshop and Painter. This is my first display tablet.
I had purchased a HUION Kamvas GT221 which was a much bigger screen, but could not get the screen colour balanced or even close to the appearance of my other main screen. I quickly returned it and bought this tablet.My Cintiq 16 displays colours,contrast and brightness the same as my IMac. The only set up issue was needing to reboot my computer to get the pen and tablet talking with the rest of the computer. Easy set up but worry if one of the wires get faulty the whole cable set up has to be replaced because all 3 cables are fused into a main connector that easily plugs into the tablet.However I have never had that issue with other Wacom pen tablets so this might be a needless worry.
The pen feels like the other WACOM pens, there are no batteries to recharge or replace (unlike HUION ). The tenxure on the screen is natural feel. There is no lag between pen curser and my drawing action. I like that this is not a touch screen as I find even with a glove its easy to set off touch screens and buttons on the side of the screen - which was the problem with the HUION touch screen. I loved the HUION and is more affordable but the quality just wasn't what I could work with compared to WACOM. Cintiq 16.
If space is an issue for you, then you might want the smaller WACOM but it is a touch screen. Download the driver from the Wacom website. Then plug in your tablet. It easily recognizes it....then reboot to get the pen working as well. I also had to buy and HDMI adapter to thunderbolt drive as IMAC doesn't have HDMI connections. A
The stand is extra....GRRR - however it is a quality product as well, but adds to the cost and certainly makes alternatives like HUION very very attractive...but it is what it is for now. WACOM costs...but you do get what you pay for.
I like the amount of real estate for the actual image on the display. (A larger model - 22 inch - would be great...but it comes at a significant higher price....maybe next time!).
Buy what you can afford. Amazon usually has an outstanding return policy that gives you time to see it it works for you.
So this is perfect however i have yet to try it as i noticed you need an hdmi port for mac laptops or imacs
So i will dump more money and get one.....but i had to do that with my previous monitor tablet too so just a heads up to mac users
Other then that i will update my review once my laptop will come back from the shop or when i get a hdmi port for my. Imac/and laptop
Plus the price is perfect for someone who doesn't want to spend that much
Edit: been using it for almost a week i LOVE LOVE LOVE this tablet it is true to colour and movement perfect for animators and illustrators on a budget
So glad i got it spend the extra money and get this beauty not a huion...stay away from that brand if you want quality drawings
There's enough "real-estate" here to use something like Photoshop or Sketchbook and have workspace for both toolsets and image. I did not order the stand accessory, but i don't need it either. I've got a cheapo IKEA tablet stand that adds a little bit more height and angle to the folding legs on the back of the 16.
There's no express-keys on the 16, but with some re-training I don't think anyone should miss them.
I downloaded the drivers a couple of days before my 16 arrived, set-up took maybe 5 minutes to unpack and plug in the 3-in-one cable. Turn everything on and its ready to use right away.
It's not fancy, it doesn't need to be.
It's a good entry-level Cintiq or a good cost-effective replacement for a larger model Cintiq.
I’ve gotten myself a Wacom Cintiq Pro 24” with a Wacom Ergo Stand. The colors and resolution of the Pro 24” has pretty much filled in my negative comments on the Cintiq 16”, though this is user specific. If you don’t use software with bloated UI like Maya/ZBrush, the Cintiq 16” is perfectly adequate, especially if you do sketching or 2D illustrations/comics. If you are looking for more color accuracy, the Cintiq Pro 24”/32” or some of the higher-end XP-Pen screen tablets might be worthy to take a look.
Now, I'm going to say something for most people might not like, but I prefer my Intuos 4 XL or Intuos Pro L over this new Cintiq 16.
My MAIN issue is the fact that you DRAW on the screen, which means your hand will ALWASY be blocking parts of the UI elements in your graphics software. If you work with pro software, (especially ZBrush and Maya), where the UI buttons are already minuscule as it is a pain when your hand is blocking 25-30% of the right side of your screen. Not a fan.
With regular Intuos 4/5/Pro tablets, no only can you can a large active area (with the L or XL size), you are also not blocking the screen with your hand, so you can see whole UI at a glance.
HOWEVER, on Cintiqs and Cintiq Pros, there is an OPTION to pretty much turn your Cintiq into Intuos 4/5/Pro and use it like a normal tablet.
You just have to duplicate your Cintiq screen with your external PC monitor, or disconnect the display from your PC settings, and the tablet will continue to work like an Intuos Pro.
STILL, duplicating desktop pretty much solves the hand blocking UI issue, as well as the COLOR ACCURACY issue.
YES, my number 2 issue with the Cintiq 16 is the COLOR ACCURACY. The colors on this Cintiq is just bad, on par with the old 2012 Cintiq 22HD and the 2015 Cintiq 13HD, or a late-2000s LCD monitor. The colors are washed out, and the white balance isn't really right, and the brightness is nothing to write home about neither.
Comparing the colors, vibrancy, and brightness, the Cintiq 16 and my calibrated BenQ PD2700U, it is a Night and Day difference. That's why using this to sketch, or using it in duplicate monitor mode is better, because you just can't really trust the colors on the Cintiq. If you are a hobbyist, this shouldn't be too much of an issue. But if you are a budding professional, or pro, or student, then get yourself an color accurate monitor. Another reason for this color issue is because of the antiglare film, and same goes to the Cintiq Pro 16/24/32 tablets with antiglare etched glass. The MATTE surface has imperfection "pores" on the surface, to diffuse light/reflection to get the "matte" look and feel.
Don't get me wrong, I do like the matte textured feel, much better than slick glass, but if the colors has to suffer on a already not so stellar color reproduction monitor, I'd rather have a less aggressive antiglare film. I'm SURE Wacom could do this, as the surface sheet on the old Intuos 3 was "matte" but the texture was no where near as "toothed" as the later Intuos 4/5/Pro.
The other reason why the color reproduction is compromised is because of the rather large "air gap" as the glass and the LCD is not laminated, therefore, more light refraction can occur on both the glass and on the LCD panel itself.
The upside to this is if your glass does crack (see Cintiq 27 issues), then the repair is fairly inexpensive if you can find the right sized glass. No optical adhesive means EASY replacement process.
FINALLY, we move to the cables. This Cintiq 16 uses a Proprietary Wacom 3-in1 cable, with the tablet end similar to the old 30-pin iPod dock connector, and it splits into a DC jack, HDMI, and USB. This cable is suspiciously similar to the previous generation Cintiq 13HD, but the power input is different, Not sure if the old cable from the 13HD would work on this model, as I don't have one to test cross compatibility.
Wacom does sell the old 13HD 3 -in-1 cable as a replacement part, however, no Cintiq 3-in-1 cable is sold as a spare part at the moment.
I do have to give credit to Wacom where its due, and that is the build quality. Despite being a all plastic build, there are no creaks, no rattles etc.. Feels really solid for a plastic/polycarbonate chassis. The Glass feels thick and study too, no complains here, and unlikely to shatter (not like the fragile and brittle Cintiq 27).
ALSO, having backwards compatibility with OLDER Wacom pens is a nice touch. Basically, the Cintiq 16 will work with all Wacom Gen 2 tip sensor pens with 2048 pressure levels (Intuos 4/5/Pro) such as the classic pen, art pen, etc etc.. in addition to the current Gen 3 tip sensor 8192 pressure levels (Intuos Pro 2017, Cintiq 16/22, Cintiq Pro 13/16/24/32).
The Parallax is there but not that noticeable for most drawing and sculpting applications. The reason for the parallax is due to the glass, and how well shielded the internal electronics are in the tablet. Wacom tablets are pretty much big gigantic wireless charging electromagnetic induction antennas that are coupled tightly between the pen (receiver) and he tablet (transmitter). Some people actual "Parallax", and in reality, it isn't, but rather interference from LCD controller in close proximity to the tablet's digitizer... Remember all electronics emit Electromagnetic fields !!!
So the pen tracking accuracy and parallax are GOOD ONLY WITH THE PRO PEN 2. With Legacy pens from Intuos 4/5 era, the tracking is only slightly off at the 4 corners close to the edge... Aside from that, I'm happy with the tracking accuracy, especially on such a cheaper hobbyist Cintiq model.
I owned regular Wacom tablets since the Intuos 3 Medium, and to this very day, it has been rock solid, even though the tablet and pen has been dropped, coffee/water spilled etc.
I then upgraded to an Intuos 4 XL size tablet, and the build wasn't as great as the Intuos 3, but was still good, and extremely usable as it was the XL size, with insane accuracy.
Finally, my last Intuos product, the Intuo Pro 2017 L, really liked the new build quality, and the detachable cable design (especially after the nightmare of Intuos 4's shoddy solder job).
