  • Summary: Great touch screen and excellent brand. Planar is a company with high quality standards. The price is good for the product. The picture quality and sensitivity are very good. More compatible with Windows 7 and 8.

Actually it's optical, not capacitive

Majik "FTW", Amazon
4 July 2013
  • Summary: Since I started using a Xoom tablet all the time I've come to loath the use of a mouse when working with my PC. The interface is strewn with buttons, why can't I touch them to operate them?? I thought. Well, this display resolves that quandry.

FANTASTIC Touch Screen Monitor

EnergyBeing11:11 "Energy Being", Amazon
4 July 2013
  • Summary: As a Graphic Artist, I wanted to find a touch screen that I could use for digital drawing directly onto the monitor. I was drooling over the Wacom Cintiq for a while but wasn't willing to drop several grand... especially when touch screens with excellent reviews were hitting the market.

KYLE M., Newegg
1 June 2013

Read the specs...

Kaleb N., Newegg
31 December 2012
  • Summary: ...is, apparently, because reading is hard.
  • Pros: Just had to post this in response to the "person" who is raving a few posts back about it "not being compatible with XP." ...if one would take a few seconds to actually read the specs of the item before they buy it, they'd see that it specifically states that it works with Win7. Period. It says n...
  • Cons: ...so the reason why someone would buy it to try to use with XP...

Portable, Ubuntu 12.04 Touchscreen :D

Eric W., Newegg
8 December 2012
  • Summary: Don't rely on any monitors having good speakers. Good speakers are naturally bulky, and heavy. This is why LCD/LED TVs are getting out of this market and handing it off to soundbars. It makes good practal sense. With that said, these speakers are not too shabby, I'm glad it has something.
  • Pros: I really love my monitor. I got this model over another Planar touchscreen because of the LED; I'm glad I did. Beautiful color, excellent contrast and sharpness, and easy on my eyes. Touchscreen is auto recongized as a mouse under Ubuntu 12.04 via USB cable. The built-in stylus docked in the lowe...
  • Cons: I really love this monitor. I want it to be my #1 for the next 5-10 years. I have no complaints for this model. I have a few suggestions that would have added the final touches. First, an intigrated eyecam would have been great, but it might have added another USB cable to plug in. Second, if the...

Make windows 8 more enjoyable with touch screen

hqnguyen52, Ebay
4 December 2012
  • Summary: I bought this touch screen to experiment with the new Windows 8. The screen is great. The picture is clear, the video is showing good, and the sound is more than acceptable. The setup is not very straight forward.
