Summary: I just required a touch screen for a project, but I was greatly surprised that W7 recognized the monitor, install a driver and allow me to program gestures for some common actions. It works perfectly and my application was greatly welcomed with this addition. I just missed it had DVI input, but VGA works OK.
Summary: I bought this for development purposes, and it is perfect for me. If I really wanted to use Windows 8.1 as a touch app I might be disgruntled simply because who wants to reach up and touch a vertical screen all day. But for color fidelity, reliability, form factor, ease of hook up, etc it is 5 stars.
