  • 1Description

The DTK2700 Cintiq 27QHD 27" Creative Pen Display from Wacom features an AHVA LCD panel, which is Wacom's proprietary IPS technology. The panel allows for a 178° wide viewing angle, which allows you and anyone in your vicinity to fully appreciate the beauty of your work without the colors being washed out. The 27" display also features a QHD 2560 x 1440 native resolution and a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio for higher resolution images while the 97% Adobe RGB wide gamut color boasts a panel of 1.07 billion colors. You can connect via HDMI or DisplayPort. However, DisplayPort is required if you want to experience the full QHD 2560 x 1440 resolution.

Customize settings and shortcuts for your favorite applications with the ExpressKeys and Touch Ring located on the included ExpressKey Remote. The included Wacom Pro Pen supports up to 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity and a resolution of 5,080 lines per inch. This display is compatible with both Mac and Windows operating systems.

QHD Interactive Pen Display
With 23.5 x 13.2" active area, you have more room to use the pen directly on screen. This allows you take advantage of natural hand-eye coordination while also giving you all the benefits of a completely digital workflow. The 2560 x 1440 native resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio, 970:1 contrast ratio, and a 330 cd/m² brightness rating ensures that your images are displayed in crisp, clear, high-definition quality. Also, the 97% Adobe RGB, 1.07 billion colors, and REC 709 support ensures that colors are accurate.
Wacom Pro Pen
Wacom's patented pen technology features 2,048 levels of tip and eraser pressure sensitivity, a resolution of 5,080 lines per inch and 40° of tilt recognition. The included cordless, battery-free Pro Pen allows you to control your pressure sensitive software tools simply by changing how hard you press the pen tip or eraser on the screen. The Pro Pen provides a natural alternative to a mouse or touchpad.
ExpressKey Remote
The included ExpressKey Remote has 17 custom application-specific keys and a finger-sensitive Touch Ring for access to time-saving shortcuts. It's also separate from the actual Cintiq display to ensure an edge-to-edge glass screen.
Ergonomically Designed
The frame that surrounds the display provides a resting place for forearms and hands, which allows you to work comfortably. The screen on this display has a completely flat surface from edge to edge. This enables your pen hand to glide over the entire surface without obstruction.
This display employs standard connection options to work with all primary platforms. It has a USB port for pen input as well as a HDMI and DisplayPort for video. A DVI-D to HDMI adapter and a Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort adapter are included for further compatibility.

    Wacom 27QHD reviews

    DTK2700 Cintiq 27QHD 27" Creative Pen Display is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from On My Second Return So Far Amazing product if you can get a good one. So far, I haven't. My first one a had really bad yellow screen bleed on the lower left screen that would easily distort anything from gray to black in tone. I returned it for a replacement and got back a screen with even worse inyellowing and bleeding. I attached an image so take a look for yourself. This tool is really useful and itpains me to return it because it's already become such a valuable part of my workflow, but a $2k+ monitor shouldn't have a discolored screen. I've had $100 monitors that don't have this problem. The only good thing about the experience is B&H's return process. They were quick to send me a replacement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't know how much I needed it I replaced a 21UX Cintiq, thinking I'd like the better color and sensitivity. When I got it I thought it was way too big, but once I started using it (primarily for 3D sculpting) I realized that I now have room to bring all of my reference directly into ZBrush, which is much easier than looking back and forth between two screens, and I do end up using all of the space on the screen.I also noticed the improved pen sensitivity right away. I have had no issues with bad pixels. The only weirdness I would like to get figured out is that text in some places, like menus is now very tiny, both on this screen and on my old second screen. There may be a simple fix, I haven't looked into it yet.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Display Works but Remote and Customer Service are Lacking I've had the tablet for 3 months now and it works well for drawing, which is my main purpose, so I have to give it credit for that. The current drivers also seem to work just fine (Mac OS X) with no noticeable problems. The display looks great and I like how light it is. One thing to note, you will need an adapter to mount it to something like the Ergotron LX desk arm. That said, I have had some problems with the tablet and Wacom Customer Service. For one, magnets do not hold the Express Key remote in place and it just slides off the tablet and onto my desk. They have gotten weaker over time, so be aware of that. Second, the Express Key remote has a small lag over bluetooth, which can be annoying when, for example, attempting to adjust brush size in Photoshop and not getting immediate feedback. My last complaint is with Customer Service. I called to resolve the weak magnets in the display. I had to call several times as the calls were dropped whenever the transferred me to the Cintiq department. I have actually not been able to get a hold of the Cintiq department as of this review and in fact one time, after waiting for about 20 minutes, I received the message the number you are calling is not in service. Unfortunately there is no direct number (per the agent) and the online support form only allows for a few basic types of support. Another thing to note, is that the warranty Wacom provides requires that you pay shipping when sending the device to be serviced, so for a big tablet like this you will be paying a significant premium just to get something fixed that should not have been a problem in the first place. So while I like having my Cintiq display, I think the shortcomings with quality control and customer service warrant a less than average rating, especially for such an expensive display.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply The Best I have used many of the Cintiq range, from the early 21UX, through the Companion, to the newer HD range. The 27QHD is spectacular. The sheer acreage of screen is breathtaking. The resolution is fantastic, and the pen tracking and pressure response is the best they have ever made. I bought this as a back-up to the 27QHD I already own, and so that other artists in my family can use it. I am not a fan of touch screen technology because I tend to rest my wrist on the screen before bringing the pen into close enough proximity, so I was very glad that Wacom made a model without that capability - and priced it considerably lower too. I highly recommend this model.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible - with a couple small issues I bought this for use with a wide variety of graphics and video applications, and it was very much a splurge. You certainly can get by with an Intuos or something. For seven years I worked with an Intuos, and it got the job done, but maybe there was some machismo that kept me from taking the leap into a pen-display. I didn't realize how much the separation between pen and eye was actually holding me back. After a few months on a really sweet gig, I could afford it, so I thought, what the heck, if you're going to spend some money just go for the best one. I haven't been disappointed. Beyond the pen functionality, it's just a really really beautiful display, and it makes working a lot more fun - even in applications that don't even use the pen. The express key remote also adds a lot to the experience. However, within the express key is the one major flaw in this product. The back plate of the remote is a bit dicey. It is slightly convex, and is a rather slick material to begin with, so despite the magnets it doesn't really stick firmly to the sides as advertised. If set up completely vertically, the remote will fall off. Even in a horizontal position, pressing the buttons will spin and slide it around. The good news is, I found an easy fix for this. Just wrap one rubber-band around the top of the remote, right above the wheel, and another around the bottom, across the bottom two buttons (don't worry, it doesn't really obstruct those buttons at all). The rubber bands raise the top and bottom of the remote off the surface just enough to clear the convex protrusion in the center, and also provide a lot more rubbery grip to stick to the slick surface of the cintiq. Easy fix, but come on, Wacom! This is your flagship! Couldn't you at least include a rubbery footing for the remote, like you have near the bottom of the display itself? The other problem is the lack of an included stand. The ergo stand is a little pricey, and has to be bought separately. I can appreciate where they are coming from with this move, which seems to be motivated by an effort to make this model much more affordable than it's predecessor - the 24HD with its built-in stand. This can be a good thing, as it allows you to save up a little more to get the stand later on, and you can rig something up in the meantime. I opted to skiip the Ergostand altogether and go for an Ergotron LX Sit-Stand Arm. If you go that route, make sure you get the sit-stand option, which is much more robust and heavy duty, and provides a more solid hold on this huge device. From what I've seen around different forums and such, the smaller arms struggle to keep such a large display steady as you're pressing your pen up against it and pushing buttons on the remote. Plus, with the Sit-Stand arm, when I'm standing and working on my Cintiq, it feels just like I'm painting on a canvas. Awesome! Neither the small issue with the remote, or the inconvenience of no stand being included would keep me from buying again. If you have a couple grand to spare - not all of us do - I'd say go for it. It's cheaper than ever. Oh yeah, and honestly, I can't speak for the touch version, but the drivers on the non-touch version are really not as glitchy as everyone says. I've had no problems so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great update! I upgraded from my cintiq 21UX to this monster and i couldn't be more happy about it. The space ratio is really convenient for image edition and illustration. The resolution is as good the cinema displays from apple and the design is magnificent. I have my doubts about the remote, which turns off more than id like to conserve power but its way more practical than attached buttons to the display. My last opinion is about the stand, it should be included since you really need it. To use only this cintiq only with its included legs its not only poor in ergonomics but you can't get a good viewing angle. If you have never used a cintiq you are in for a big satisfaction as this machine is as well designed and reliable as it should be. If you own already a cintiq, this is a great update over picture quality and display size.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Far better than older cintiqs Space: The display takes up a lot of space, even more with the stand. It uses about half of my desk, and I have a 6ft desk. It has a built in stand, but it's really hard to use without the optional ergo stand because of the poor angle. The ergo stand uses a lot of space on your desk, and it has to sit at the very edge so it can extend/tilt down over the edge. Performance: There are some minor problems with drivers, but they work fairly well. The remote has a few problems being unresponsive or disconnecting, but generally works well with the updated drivers and rarely happens. There is almost no jitter, if you hold then pen in position it may shift a pixel or two every few seconds due to the interference, but that happens on all cintiq models. The pen is fairly fast, though not as fast as a normal Wacom tablet. The front of this model is a frosted/textured glass, probably a good idea to use a screen protector so it won't get chipped or crack. However, it shouldn't ever scratch like previous cintiq models. The display quality is worlds better than the 24hd or 22hd, as it is much clearer and has no haze. The colors are quite good, and it does support 30 bit color (Display Port is required to run it at full resolution. Also, you will need a pro video card to use 30 bit color and supported applications). The viewing angles still are not great, even working close to it you may have to move some to see everything clearly (mostly because the display is large, but also because of the anti-glare which reduces viewing angle). I would not want to use this as my primary monitor unless I needed the pen functionality at all times.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition for artists. I was using the Cintiq 22HD for a couple years at home when finally my employer gave me a green light to buy one for work. I decided to upgrade to the 27QHD for the work one and loved it so much that I sold my 22HD and bought a second 27QHD for home. I did have some issues with the remote not charging, but Wacom sent me out a new one right away. Another nice thing about using Cintiqs is how much faster I can work on one over the standard tablet. I would recommend this to anyone that is doing photo retouching or any digital artist and illustrators.
