Decent

  • Pros: I have one of these running on Ubuntu GNU/Linux. It doesn't support the full 10 point touch but it does single touch out of the box. Really doesn't do much unless you get the Easystroke Gestures app but when you do you can do a lot of cool stuff!
  • Cons: No multi-gesture support out of the box on Ubuntu GNU/Linux.

Good quality picture and touch, additional downloads needed to install with Windows 8.1

  • Summary: So far I am very pleased with this monitor. It has a great large display HD picture and the touchscreen has worked well for me thus far (although I am not using this to do extremely detailed work, I'm using it primarily for basic navigation of Windows and the web). Multi-touch seems to work well.

Works well on Ubuntu 13.04

Elena L., Newegg

  • Summary: I bought this as a compliment to my Thinkpad W510 touch (dual/two finger touch) when I dock it at work. I used to have a non-touch LCD and everytime I would dock and just use the single screen I would get frustrated by lack of touch, it made for a very lousy workflow.
  • Pros: Single touch works out of box on Ubuntu (GNU/Linux) 13.05.
  • Cons: Dual touch, or the full 10 finger touch does not work out of box. I haven't figured out how to get it to work yet.

Great Monitor

  • Summary: I thoroughly enjoy using this monitor. I was a little worried about the price but don't regret the purchase one bit. I would definitely buy this again and recommend this for anyone using a Windows 8 desktop. Just remember to change the down-scaling to 0% if using AMD.

Looks Fantastic

Firerouge, Overclock

  • Excerpt: While I don't own one personally I got to see one at Intel today, and I have to say it's an amazing looking monitor. Very crisp and clear colors, they definitely didn't skimp out on the monitor half of the touchscreen monitor.

It's not Perfect but the Helium is Nice

  • Summary: First, the touchscreen works greats with Windows 7. Accuracy is very good.I can drag and drop and open and close with ease. With a Windows 7 system, my finger is a good as a mouse pointer. Multi-touch works well but I have very little use for it right now.

Clear and bright and responsive, crappy sound.

  • Summary: Clear and bright and responsive, crappy sound though. The built in webcam also is kind of lame and cant adjust its angle which can be frustrating. Better stylus support would have been nice.

Not for image processing

qwerty, Amazon

  • Summary: Not discounting the other generally positive reviews here - this monitor is probably fine for undemanding visual uses - gaming, etc. But it's not suitable for anything where color gamut and image quality are important - Photoshop, graphics production, etc.

Very nice!

  • Summary: I needed a multi-touch monitor to use for application development. This one works very well for that purpose. The touch is accurate and responsive, and with up to 20 touch points, I can test just about any application.

  • Summary: Pros: - works with Windows 8 touch interface - very big monitor, makes people jealous! - DisplayPort connector - wall-mount compatible - includes USB and HDMI cables Cons: - glossy surface with high glare - mediocre dot pitch - very big monitor, need very long arms to use touch - No DVI connector,...
