Wacom Cintiq scratch screen solution

I posted a solution on my website for dealing with scratches on the screen of a Cintiq. I have gotten thousands of hits over the last few months, to the extent that i am the number one return on Google for "scratch Cintiq". It is clear to me that many people are looking for a solution.

The basic idea involves removing the thin plastic layer that coats the glass screen.


Also, I feel like Wacom should take responsibilty for their scratch issue which they have been trying to cover up for some time. I recently heard that the new 24hd screens also have a problem ( see above link in comments section). If anyone has a way to get an article written about this so we can put pressure on them to deal with it please tell me.

I knew there was a conspiracy LOL.

Honestly I didn't

I do wish it were a more fair competitive market for tablets tho.

They once had a large message board on this topic which they purged. Fact.

Also, there is a little known company policy that anyone who even mentions the word "scratch" in any context whatsoever must do 50 pushups on the spot!

( that last part I made up, but my general point remains: for $2000 a product should last for a while, and they should be upfront about the issues)

i completely agree.

does the 22HD have the same issue? i was considering getting one and modding the base for use with an armature like this:

You can buy screen protectors for them, I use a Nushield one. Also be aware that worn down nibs are the main cause of scratching.

This plastic layer is probably the reason for the offset of the curser to the tip of the pen?
