No Water / Condensation Allowed on Screen


I bought this monitor to use with a Point Of Sale system in a deli that serves hot lunches. Unfortunately, whenever any moisture gets on the screen, (like say the condensation from a cold coke bottle), the touch screen goes completely haywire. I should...

Stays clean, bright and clear screen

Can't handle any exposure to moisture on screen

Good for a Starter Touch screen!


I have yet to try my wacom tablet pen on the screen. I'm sure it should work.

I just can't handle the idea of the wacom tablet. The touch screen is much more accurate. I have windows 7, works just fine

It takes a while to really get all the settings going. Especially if you are new to calibrations and setup

So so


For a point of sale device or similar this would probably be great, but for a desktop monitor the display quality isn't there.

1) Touch screen works very well as an input device ; 2) Fedora 9 linux kernel has support for it as a usb device

1) Display is harsh on my eyes ; 2) Viewing angle in which colors are accurate is VERY small. If I'm lined up with the top of the monitor, the colors already start to look funny on the bottom and vice versa ; 3) Less important: Elo's linux drivers...

A 5-wire resistive touch monitor. Base is pretty sturdy. Dual Serial/USB is nice if you are slowly migrating your systems. Looks like it could take a moderate coffee spill...but don't push your luck

Accutouch" is spin. It would be better to call it what it is...5-wire resistive touch screen

ELO Excellent as Always


Just excellent as I had expected

Big Sturdy Touch Monitor

Nice and Easy


This was my first purchase of an ELO touch screen. I choose this one because the screen is glass. I had purchased from another company before and had problems with a non-glass touch screen.

Very stable base, clean look. Fast operation and easy setup. Driver software includes all the basic options you would need.

It wasn't free, and it's yet to do my laundry for me.

Easy installation using the CD Rom utilities.

LCD not very weighty easily knock over if not on a study desktop.

Nice Screen


Working very well with USB on Linux.

One DOA pixel in the center of the monitor possibly caused by the the pixel Gremlins.

Did not test on other operating systems.

Working very well with USB on Linux. Use the drivers from the manufacturer's site
