On Amazon it says "Usually Ships within 1-2 months" My friend says that's BS and that the Cintiq 21ux are basically on permanent back-order because of the fact that the new ipod touch's use the same glass screen. Therefore the glass is in high demand and the Cintiq 21ux's are on back-order... I'm just wondering if this is true or if anyone has recently ordered a Cintiq 21ux from somewhere because it's my summer and I honestly don't have the time to waste because my tablet is broken.
Thanks, Much Appreciated.
I 2nd this. I too can trying to buy a new cintiq 21UX(2). I also have noting to do this summer. Also, I'd like to mention that I am in interested in used ones seeing as I don't trust people with over 1k dollars. thanks
Good Luck. I've been on a "wait list" with Wacom since early January. Rumor was, 6 months ago, that they were clearing inventory to release a new version. I know after the earthquake Wacom released several statements saying their building was damaged (no one was injured) but functional, however their suppliers had been affected and they'd work to find replacements and maintain operations as best they could.
I bought mine on Corel.com and it took about 1 month to come in. That was earlier in January this year.

When I got my cintiq, I got it from NCIX (a small Canadian computer store) http://ncix.com/products/?sku=51820&...m&promoid=1334 At the time I got it the price was $2100 rather than $2400 as it's listed now...but I got my tablet in about a week's time. Hope this might help for Canadians No idea about international shipping either, sorry
This other thread says Dell has them on sale for $1600 and something and newegg.com has open box items for less: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=150526
also check ebay if it doesn't need to be new.
Just ordered one from BandHphoto over the weekend. It will be here by the end of the week. I talked to Wacom and they gave like three companies to keep checking stock with. BandH was the one I kept checking. Friday showed it as unavailable. Saturday showed in stock but you couldn't "check out" until 9:45pm new york time. I waited and waited and purchased. I was going to post it on here, but I checked back and they were out of stock again.
I was on the wait list with Cool Graphics Stuff and they contacted me after about a month that they got some in.
After I ordered my Cintiq 21ux from amazon 3 months ago, I found out about coolgraphicstuff.com just today. I called and talked to Anthony at coolgraphicsstuff and should be getting a manufacture refurb cintiq 21 today. He said he expects another shipment in the newt week or two. Super nice guy! I also emailed a place called machollywood.com and they have two currently in stock for $2100. After 3 months today is my lucky day!
^cheers to that.. hope they're priced reasonibly.
Thanks for all the tips, guys! It would appear it is better to get on a waiting list with US distributors rather than with Wacom, themselves, which is interesting.
Ditto to p_sage. Anthony at coolgraphicsstuff.com has a supply coming in this week (assuming Irene did not mess up delivery times too much). Checked his business out with Wacom and they gave him good reviews.
Disclaimer: I don't have a connection with the site, just did a bunch of research and wanted to save someone some time.
I just received a Cintiq 21UX (new) from Motion Media in Santa Monica, CA for $2199. They have them in stock.
I was a bit worried about them being legit; but they have a website in web.archive.org that's several years old. Google maps shows them... and... well... I just got this
... proof enough for me
@P_Sage - Motionmedia's site also states they are out of stock. Was it that way when you ordered, and they just haven't bothered to update the listing?
Edit: coolgraphicsstuff.com just updated their site to "in stock", put in an order for 1,999.99 with free ground shipping.

As a heads up for anyone still looking coolgraphicstuff.com has refurbished 21UX tablets in stock for $1599 with free shipping in the US.
Just want to update yall: I just ordered the Cintiq 21ux from motionmedia.com for $2199 and the guy called me few hours later (on a Sunday !) and let me know that its shipping tomorrow . They are aware of the long wait for this item so he went out of his way to assure me. Oh yea they have 12 left in stock FYI.
