Summary: To prevent being redundant with other reviews I will give you a "value-added" review of this product. I bought this to be an upgrade as I design eLearning courses and create animations for them.
Summary: Excellent touchscreen for Windows 8.1. Integrates well with my Surface Pro-3 for use as a desktop workstation screen. Has best video ports set including HD Display Port interface which many competitive models lack. Volume is mediocre but that's not why I bought this.
Summary: I just got this in today. I originally bought an Asus monitor in the past and wasn't getting enough image clarity. So, I tried this and it seems to be working beyond my expectations. This is a high quality monitor, seems solidly built, with the exception of the webcam.
Summary: This is a quick review of the Planar Helium PCT2785 27" Widescreen Multi-Touch Monitor. I work in a cubicle in an office environment. This review takes place within the first 2 hours of use. I give this monitor a 9 out of 10.
Summary: HD resolution on a 27 inch screen was not a good idea. (Big pixels.) To be expected. The touchscreen is not pressure sensitive! It is no better than having a mouse for art programs like GIMP. Unexpected. It was around $150 for the only shipping option. Cannot do anything about that, I suppose.
Summary: I love this touch screen. I compared with the Acer and chose the Planar and am more than happy with it. It looks great, has great resolution, is very portable for meetings (I bought the Roccat Tusco carry case for it for $54), and the touch screen capability is fantastic.
