Summary: I purchased this monitor because the reviews said it was a 4 out of 5 star, Either the people reviewing it are blind or the reviews are suspect. The monitor has terrible contrast and almost no definition of the colors. I purchased it for a golf simulator monitor because it was a touch screen, I thought it would be nice not to have to worry about the keyboard and mouse while holding a club. I ended up using a 27" Samsung I had. No comparison in picture quality.
Summary: First, let talk about the Bad. camera, so awful, useless, . video will only give you a blur movement can not catch video, only good for Picture. Second to think this monitor is manufacture made, all the cable should have bundle, or custome into one connector, one cable. still all individual.
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. It might look like a border to some, but it's the processor scaling down the display 10-15%.
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.
Summary: Bought this to go with an Asus desktop running Win 8. I didn't want an all-in-one Touch system like the Dell XPS 27 inch which includes a higher resolution monitor than this one. Wanted to build my own desktop and wanted a lower cost alternative. The monitor has the several inputs (HDMI,VGA, audio, mic, USB hub, built-in full HD web cam with microphone). It is full HD (1920 x 1080) with a 60hz refresh rate.
Summary: I have this monitor sitting on my desk at work after one of my bosses spotted it online and thought it was cool. He bought it with the intention of developing a touch screen application to take advantage of it, but I am far from impressed. Pros: - It's big - It's generally pretty sleek, it gets a lot of attention from people who walk by my desk - It's bright, I've turned down the brightness quite a bit to make it easier on my eyes - Multitouch does work Cons: - First and...
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. The onscreen keyboard is smooth.
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. Second, the Helium works with Windows 8 but the accuracy is off. I found myself unable to close Chrome browser tabs even though my finger was right on the X.
