After working with two monitors for a short period of time I discovered that I love the ability to work (word processing, internet research, document reading, etc.) on my laptop while being able to view my Outlook (calendar, email and contacts) on a second screen to my right. I also found that I hated having to move my mouse cursor (I use a wireless mouse rather than my laptop's touch pad) over to the second monitor to work on Outlook. I thought about getting a touchscreen monitor so I could just reach over to the touchscreen monitor to scroll though my email, contacts and calendar so my cursor would stay in place on my laptop. I ordered the Planar based on the reviews, and after setting it up I found out it didn't quite work the way I wanted. First, I learned that the Planar wants to be the primary monitor. When I set it as the secondary monitor and I touched on the Planar screen, I was actually controlling my laptop screen. That didn't seem to be right so I called Palnar customer support. They first told me that Windows 7 will only allow the Planar to be the primary monitor. I told the Planar guy that if that was the case I may as well send it back. He then told me that some folks were able to "get it to work" as the secondary monitor which would then allow the touchscreen to work as I desired. He made it sound like some kind of work around. He talked me into Windows' Control Panel where there is a feature called Tablet PC that allows you to select which monitor will have the touchscreen function. It is not a "work around" or "get it to work" function as was expressed by the Planar support, but a simple setting change. I did the change and viola, I use the Planar as my second screen and when I touch my email it allows me to scroll and use Outlook just like I wanted.Read more ›

We got a batch of these monitors at work. We use touchscreens all the time for interactive kiosks. These monitors' touch capabilities are some of the best we've ever seen. Very sensitive. Works out of the box with Windows 7, without needing any drivers or software installed. We haven't done any calibration or anything and haven't noticed any trouble with accuracy with the default settings.

We used this side-by-side with an HP all-in-one touchscreen PC, and the usage was almost night-and-day. This one is quick, reactive, and barely requires any touch at all.

The only issue I've encountered is that if you click-and-hold, the mouse pointer doesn't move to the spot you're holding on until you release it. This is fine for all Windows use, but was causing some issues with our interactive software that relies on holds for functionality. HOWEVER, if you start to drag, it instantly works properly. So I think this issue is a special case to our specific software.

As for the screen quality, this one is nice and bright, accurate colors, deep blacks. There's a bit of dimming when looking at it from a side angle, but nothing atypical for an LCD panel.

The bezel, frame, and mount work great in our applications. Because it uses feet at the bottom of the front bezel and with an a-frame style back bracket, it's very stable at every angle, including tilted upwards for use while standing. This makes it a great choice for kiosks, work tables, kitchens, etc. Although I can't speak to water or dustproofing on this. :)

All in all, a great, large screen with very nice touch, at a very reasonable price.

The monitor is clear, bright, vibrant and the touch capabilities work ok. The multitouch pinch function is not as smooth as on a tablet such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab, but otherwise it works fine. My biggest issue is with the edges of the screen. On tablets and phones you get a smooth, flat touch surface that extends from the screen all the way to the edges of the device. There's no plastic beveled edge to get in the way when swiping from the sides. This monitor has a fairly thick plastic casing all the way around it as most monitors do. This is fine for a regular monitor, but I bought this to use with Windows 8 which utilizes the CORNERS of the screen to access many functions. It is very difficult to get your finger to the corner of the screen to swipe in and get the functions to appear. To be fair, this may be a Windows problem with active touch zones, but if you're buying this monitor to use with Windows 8, be aware of this issue.

addendum: this is a resistive screen, meaning it can be activated by touching it with various objects, not just your finger, and it's quite sensitive. I've tried a pencil eraser, piece of wood, marker cap, ball of paper and it all works. In fact, I brushed the screen lightly with a piece of paper as I was moving things on my desk, and it moved an icon from one side of the screen to the other.

Love it. Wife was pissed I spent money on a specialized touch-screen monitor for the kitchen, yet she uses it EVERY DAY and definitely likes having a computer in the kitchen. I'd buy this again in a heart beat. Touch screen accuracy is a bit off most of the time (even after multiple attempts at calibration & cleaning) but it's close enough and works really well despite this. My daughter LOVES microsoft paint with this monitor. :o)
