  • Pros: I currently have Windows 7 and ordered it to work with Windows 8
  • Cons: Does not tilt as well for touch screen typing...Buy an Arm that tilts

Disappointed

Justin T Barbalace, Amazon
7 October 2012
  • Summary: I am very disappointed with my purchase. The video quality of this monitor is poor. The default video settings on this monitor washed out the display. I turned down the contrast and up the brightness and it made it better but my inexpensive Asus 22" monitor is much clearer, and crisper side by side.

A good screen but not the best

Anonymous, Newegg
6 August 2012
  • Summary: Not surprising, with the varying types of MT displays, capacitive, resistive, etc, it isn't apparently a true MT screen because of the first con I listed, but for any piratical use including drawing or text-input, using it for photo albums and image manipulation, it doesn't have any real faults.
  • Pros: Big 22" diagonal screen (Marked as 21.5", but 22" according to the box) Bright colours and good contrast Affordable as far as touch-screens are concerned Fingerprints aren't always able to get on the screen
  • Cons: Not a true "multi-touch" screen, only accepts 2 simultaneous points according to Windows tablet features. The included software is virtually useless, and you'll just end up using the OS calibration tools.

not bad

BEWARE!! "me", Amazon
5 January 2012
  • Summary: Well, pros: Like the other reviews, the screen is an eye opener. Nice and bright. Good definition. I havent bothered with the speakers due to the other reviews. I will continue using my stand alone ones. I like the sound that they give, plus, speakers always suck when built into a monitor.

Touch of Class

Kevin L., Newegg
21 December 2011
  • Summary: Stop returning products and raising the costs. Things use to be cheap here 8 years ago, until a lot of people like this started coming along.
  • Pros: Since when did Windows XP or Vista support touch screens? These people should be shot. These 12 o'clock flashers should stick with MACS.
  • Cons: So you think other touchscreens support non Windows 7? Why bash Viewsonic if you have no clue. Only if you have specialized software, such as a register at resturants and retail stores.

Touchscreen monitor

D. Gilbertson, Amazon
30 October 2011
  • Summary: I bought this monitor to see how it would work with a couple of applications I use. I played with the iPad before and had set it up to use remote desktop services to access my Windows desktop. The iPad was too small to properly utilize the programs so I thought a larger touchscreen might work well..

I like it

Clayton S., Newegg
14 August 2011
  • Pros: Pleased with monitor, bright vibrant and screen is accurate and responsive to touch (good ole fingers). Monitor is hooked up to a micro PC running 64 bit Windows 7 Service pack 1. System is wall mounted in a kitchen (decent amount of sunlight). Main use is to tie into home network, internet, vide...
  • Cons: I avoided using the built in speaker, flat and low. Also while not a ding for the monitor, for wall mounting use a high quality mount. My first attempt (which is being replaced) has the monitor at a constant tilt down (again a hit for the mount, the monitor weighs in at 14lbs.. not a beast)
