works well for price

Wanted it, got it, happy with it


I bought the ibuypower gaming laptop which came with Win 8. I wanted a touch screen monitor just to be able to play with win8 touch features, it does exactly what I expected it to do t a very reasonable price.

good entry level touch screen


front bezel causes some problems with touching the edges, trying to find a fix for this. the pointer located in the bottom right of the bezel helps with this a bit. I am using on vista plug n play
