XP-Pen Artist22 vs Wacom Cintiq 22HD is the comparison of two digitizers that have the same high resolution for professional use and the Multitouch tech to accept both gestures from fingers and stylus. Do Wacom Cintiq 22HD’s 16 buttons and 2,048 levels of pressure worth its high price or a budget XP-Pen Artist22 is able to meet all the customers’ needs?
The test Wacom Cintiq 22HD vs XP-Pen Artist22 has demonstrated the Wacom Cintiq 22HD’s widescreen solution with more space on the sides for menus. Its picture is clear and bright, but it has poorer color gamut versus XP-Pen Artist22’s plenty of tones and shades.
Wacom Cintiq 22HD impresses with its durable build on the bezel for moving around whenever you need. It has one port for fast wire connection on the rear panel. It performs properly with pro-software that allows doing animation, 3D modeling, and illustration. The Touch Strips tech provides easy shortcuts and the opportunity to view images from all angles.
XP-Pen Artist22 is a little bit glossy, but a screen protector offsets this shortcoming and reduces reflections.
