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.
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.
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: 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.
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.
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,...
Summary: I am interested to see how the Acer 27 inch monitor works. It has a better response time 5ms versus 12ms for this monitor. It also has usb ports on the side. Still I know planar comes up as some of the best touch monitors on the market and so I bought this.
Pros: Works very well. Has great response to touch and good color. The stand works well and the viewing angles are really good. Has usb ports on the monitor.
Cons: The camera is not good. They say it is HD and it may be, but it looks horrible. The usb ports are where you connect your HDMI cable which is nice for fixed usb devices or items, but not helpful for thumb drives, etc.
Summary: The replacement PCT2785 arrived today. Installation was seamless, and both the WEBCAM and Mic work per the Specs. Display is awesome and touch point calibration is very accurate. I had ordered a 27" Dell XPS 27, but the ever increasing delivery times resulted in my cancelling that and just buying...
Pros: WEBCAM, Mic, and Monitor all working great now that replacement has arrived. Touch Calibration is spot on. Newegg was great with the return of the defective unit. First time that I've had to return something to Newegg in the years I've been ordering from them.
Cons: The 3 day shipping took 4 Business Days. No idea why, as the item sat in Phoenix for 36 hours before being forwarded to local UPS distribution point. No fault of Newegg.
