Summary: This touchscreen monitor works great, I like it. My only issues are these (and I knew about them from other reviews when I ordered it): Touch works well, except in extreme corners. I am running Windows 8 and I either have to use a mouse to reach the bottom left corner to call up Metro/Modern UI or I can reach it by doing a quick swipe left from the far right and hit Start there. The screen is a bit too reflective, but with a white background you barely notice.
Summary: I needed a wide touch screen monitor for an equipment demonstration for an industrial expo. It arrived two days after I ordered it, and worked great out of the box on Windows XP and 7 machines. It was a hit with the clients and our sales team at the expo, as visitors could walk up and run our equipment. It also worked great displaying our videos The speakers are loud enough to hear in medium sized rooms, but not great quality of tone.
Summary: I went to a store to purchase a computer and monitor. Already looked up reviews and had the two items I wanted. Looking for viewsonic but they did not have in stock so they sold me this one. After I brought home it did not work on win 8 immediately. Looked at reviews and a lot said that it did not work with win 8 at all. Called Planar and they walked me through trouble shooting and it works great! Hope this helps!
Summary: This is a great secondary monitor for Win8 systems, not to be used as your only or primary monitor as the edges of the screen are not flush, they are set in so swiping from edges is VERY difficult and not recommended.
Summary: Wow! That is what my friend said after I hooked up this monitor. The picture was very sharp and the color was vivid. The touchscreen made my Windows 8 experience much better. The only con I have is the stand, it is made from plastic and it felt a little cheap. Amazing deal for the price!
Summary: I find this to be a very good display with one concern. My only issue is that the bezel is raised enough to make the 'swipe' from the sides of display difficult to do because you can't truly get to the absolute edge of the glass. In most circumstances, there are workarounds so it is not a major issue but more of an irritant. Otherwise, it was very easy to install and has very good color and brightness across the screen.
Summary: This is a beautiful monitor with rich colors. However, Planar does not support this model with Win 8, and the touchscreen feature never worked with my new system. A fine choice if you're sticking with Win 7 though.
