3.0 out of 5 stars Great monitor - but trouble with Windows 8 edge gestures, November 26, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ViewSonic TD2220 22-Inch Screen LED-Lit Touch Display Monitor (Personal Computers)
As a touchscreen monitor this is a great product: great image quality and great value. However, the bezel isn't flush with the screen so the Windows 8 gestures that require you to move in from the side are difficult to accomplish. As you sweep from the bezel, your finger doesn't enter at the exact edge of the screen, so Windows 8 often doesn't recognize the gestures. It's possible to learn to get them to work much of the time: start the gesture by touching the screen right at its edge with your fingernail "pointing in," but I still have trouble with the top and bottom gestures.

That's why Planar Heliums have no bezels.

The monitor works fine with Windows 8 and a desktop computer if you calibrate it for touch as if it were a Tablet. Here is a link to instruction: http://www.ancsite.com/windows-8-touch-pen-settings-calibrate-touchscreen
