avatarben2016-04-12: Before you ask (and there's a 99% chance you won't), yes, I'm very aware that I keep asking questions in my posts like I'm expecting some kind of answer, but you can't answer, because I never got around to make a decent Comments section. I'm here to clarify: no, I'm not crazy. I'm doing this to create proximity with my readers. These are not real questions: it's just the way I tend to bring up most subjects, and I like it because it's dynamic.

So, that's out of the way. Good. Now, did you see the FlipSteady?! I'm talking about the Cintiq Companion model.

OMG I want this so much, but even discounted it's still like $250 Canadian dollars for a tablet stand. At that price I can buy... stuff. Things. I'm sure it's worth it in the long run, but what frustrates me the most is that this product shouldn't need to exist. It's a solution to an avoidable problem.

The included Companion stand is unwieldy to say the least, and Wacom doesn't offer an alternative. It does a decent job as a static stand, yes, but it's 100% not portable. It's called a Companion, people. Accordingly, you won't fiind a single Cintiq Companion review that doesn't criticize the stand, and yet it's still there, awkwardly attached to every unit like a tumor. It's a rigid piece of junk, and paying $250 to fix something that should already be fixed, well... it pisses me off. It's like buying a wallet or a belt, you know? It just doesn't feel right.

Still, there's a huge possibility I'll be buying a FlipSteady anyway, because I have no self-control whatsoever. Everybody wins?

-Ben!
