I received my fantastic Cintiq 22HD couple of days ago with an ergotron arm. Great! When everything was in place and I was about to plug it to my laptop......DAMN!!!! My laptop doesn´t have a DVI port!!! I thought that there should be an adapter to VGA inside the box.....NO!!!!THERE IS NO VGA OR HDMI ADAPTER INSIDE THE BOX!! SUCH AN EXPENSIVE THING AND THEY DON´T PUT ONE OF THOSE CHEAP THINGS INSIDE THE F*CKING BOX??? So I had to search all around Helsinki somewhere to buy one of those adapters.Bad luck...I couldn´t find it anywhere...so I had to buy them, both DVI to VGA and DVI to HDMI (just to try which one gives me the best results) on eBay.
So yes....now my cintiq is there waiting until I receive those adapters next week....
Bad luck!


Cheers!

You know, I actually watch :iconjavas: on my deviant feed and I read his Journal entry today about moving to Finland and he mentioned you in it. Out of referential curiosity I came to check out your page and this Journal entry of yours caught my eye.. why? Well..

Wacom announced their latest Cintiq as the 13HD, I guess it's an update from their 12WX line and I officially planned on getting it, I am SUPER excited about it!

In any case, in my delirious excitement I overlooked one minor detail as far as connectivity compatibility, case in point, my Macbook Pro from like 4-5 years ago doesn't have an HDMI input. THIS Journal of yours opened my eyes to that MAJOR roadblock I would've came to had I have gotten my Cintiq in the mail, all super excited, just to end up like you! Haha!

Happy to report though that after some speedy research, I found exactly what I needed in Amazon -- [link] --

As soon as I place my order for the Cintiq, I will be getting this nifty converter as well.

Thanks bro! Sucks you gotta wait another week or so til you get to beast out, but at least you have it :) Enjoy it when you get it popping mang! Wooh!

Que putadilla que te han hecho xD, desde luego, pagas una pasta por el cacharro y que te vengan con estas...
menos mal que se pueden encontrar adaptadores sin demasiadas complicaciones

Not that strange since VGA is less used nowadays because all screens are digital (VGA uses analogue transferring). Another thing is that HDMI and DVI should give the same quality because HDMI is basically an extension of DVI and as well can transfer sound. Buying both HDMI and DVI is pretty useless.

Not buying HDMI and DVI, but an adapter to convert DVI to HDMI since i have HDMI and VGA only in my laptop.
I know VGA is less used nowadays, but a device so expenssive should include an adapter just in case,cause lots of users may have to use it in older computers or laptops as mine,not so old, but without DVI.

Yo encuentro que como mínimo el de DVI a HDMI lo debería llevar, es básico. El de vga-dvi te pueden poner la excusa de que es analógico, y ya no se usa, como comenta K-Bladin.

Pero el adaptador de HDMI a DVI lo debería llevar si o si, lo lleva cualquier tarjeta gráfica de hoy en día (de hecho la última gráfica que compre traía HDMI-DVI y DVI-VGA xD, hace muy poco.

Manda huevos la cosa.
JAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJ a eso lo consideras mala suerte...
solo veo una de las finas ironias de la vida riendose un poco de ti, pero nada grave XD
zagal si te cuento lo que me ha tocado a mi este agosto te asustas, pero no entrare en detalles de momento.

Tan solo se paciente y en unos dias estaras probando esa cintiq...
aunque manda huevos que una tableta de mas de mil pavos no lleve un misero adaptador de 10 o 15€ (racanus maximus wacomnensis)...

Esperando estoy los resultados de esa tableta en tus manos desde antes de ayer...
