" ...  If you're a Mac user, prepare to feel completely catered to for the brief moment you plug in the tablet with your single cable, only to feel underwhelmed thanks to the rest of the device's shortcomings when compared to its price tag. ... You still can't use the HDMI port though, unless you're cool with 1440p.  ...  "

" ...  Let me start by saying that I could have easily just connected the tablet using an HDMI cable and called it a day, but I figured that if the fans were going to run no matter what resolution I set it at then I might as well go all out (plus I wanted to test if it actually works). ... I connect the tablet and PC via USB C. The screen turned on. ... I think to myself that it's probably because I have not plugged in the micro USB cable which I am assuming controls the pen/touch. ... One problem, the tablet only came with 3 USB C slots and 1 SD card slot, which of course, the micro USB cable does not fit into either of the two. ... So I go back to option (A) and buy a mini display port adapter.  ...  "

" ...  1) The packaging comes with cables but not enough cables to plug the tablet into the majority of computers. ... 2) The HDMI option is a total farce. ... The breakout box has an HDMI plug but im 99% sure it is a dummy to give the illusion of choice. ... If this is a cable issue then providing an adequate HDMI cable could have been a cheap solution for something that costs $1500. ... 3) Cable fiasco at hand, we purchased a mini displayport to hdmi cable. ... Now we purchased Mini Displayport to Display port cable (honestly who has a USB C or mini displayport on their desktop?)  ...  "

comment
" ...  Apparently, you must have a specific type of USB-C port (it must support DisplayPort Alternate Mode). ... If you do not have this specific kind of USB-C port, you will have to use the Wacom Link along with a mini-DisplayPort and USB-A cable (for 4k resolution) or an HDMI and USB-A cable for QHD resolution. ... I have 2 monitors already on my DisplayPort connections, so I have none to spare, and what is the point of having a 4k-capable device running in a lower resolution?  ...  "

" ...  If I didn't have a double-sided HDMI just laying around I would have been out just a few more dollars.  ...  "

" ...  The 4k resolution feels largely dulled by the near-translucent screen cover. ... There's a sort of separation of tactility that I don't experience on my non-screen tablets.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I thought if I adjusted my settings to a lower brightness and a lower resolution, then it would be quieter, but the fans noise remained the same. ... The calibration is good around most of the center of the screen, except the last 1 cm on each corner.  ...  "

" ...  Display does not function in windows still but touch works and everything indicates that it is correctly connected and displaying, however Cintiq says no signal. ... The cursor "jumps" over that section of the display. ... Further investigation shows that its happening across the entire screen.  ...  "
