Touch is defective


Driver is acting like a trojan virus after installation. Keeps rebooting my system and blue screen errors. Touch never worked. I called tech support but They are very rude and impolite. Did'nt solve the problems.

Dead monitor


I turned on the monitor and it burned out less than a day. Touch never worked. I tried installing the driver over and over again but gave me a lot of errors. not compatible in windows. I called the tech support at Gvision, but they are dead as well.

Excellent monitors


I purchased some 3M Automotive Protection film to put over the screens because I was noticing some wear-spots. The film doesn't interfere with the operation one bit and completely stopped the wear issue. It costs about $10/monitor (and a little...

I am just purchasing my 12th and 13th unit of these monitors, first one was over 2 years ago. I have not had even a hint of trouble with them

You would be hard pressed to find something to complain about

Excellent resistive touchscreen monitor


Gvision seems to sell these monitors with a couple of different internal hardware configurations. I got one that was made by eGalax Touch; others have ones made by Elo. I found Windows 7 drivers by searching for "EETI eGalax Touch"

Nice heavy base, can be tilted to be completely horizontal. Good resolution. Matte screen has less glare and doesn't show fingerprints. I've used it on Windows XP, Vista, and 7 (see other thoughts below)

Speakers aren't great. Note that this is a resistive touchscreen, so it does not support multitouch (pinch to zoom gestures, etc)

So far so good


Solid construction, and i hope it will survive our production environment. So far it works quite well as a dual monitor setup.

Solid construction, works as multi screen as well

Software and Drivers. It took me the better part of 2 hours to figure out how to set this up to work with two screens on one graphic card. The setup is not very intuitive

Great Touchscreen


I was a little worried about buying this touchscreen because i had never heard of GVision before, but the product is great and seems good quality.

Great TouchScreen for the price! I had no problems setting it up, just installed the software and connected the cables and it was ready. I didn't even know it came with built in speakers, thats a bonus :) It can tilt all the way flat and can connect to...

none so far!

Not as Touchy as I wanted


Good cheap touchscreen monitor. VERY heavy base, tilts all the way up, and stable with a lot of pressure on the screen. The lower price outwieghs the cons

has some odd 'dead' spots. hard to explain, as you can go back over the same spot and it will respond
