Consumer review (

Decent LITTLE monitor, but pricey.


Bought this to monitor surveillance cameras in a production facility. Does what it needs to, but I really wish the stand came off entirely. It doesn't need to be pretty, so I kept it.

overall a decent monitor. It is tiny (15") so be sure you know what you're going for. Automatic settings were fine. Menus easy enough to navigate. Apparently has built-in speakers, won't ever use them, but its a plus. Has VESA compatible wall-mount holes

The price is far too high for what this is. This technology was good in 2002, so I'm not sure why this monitor isn't $50. Also, the stand does not come off all the way. The vertical portion is permanently attached, so if you are wall mounting it,...

Excellent replacement


My touchscreen at work gave out, so I checked on the internet, and found this company with the best price around. Pretty easy hookup, works great. Would recommend again.

Better than Elo Touch?


I hope so. I have become frustrated with the short functional life cycle of the display driver on the Elo touch monitors and have started migrating to Planar. So far so good!

Great Features and Gret Price


Worked well even with Windows 7 32 Bit. Installation was straight forward and it works well. For the price, it does exactly what I needed it to do. :)

Great Unit Great Price


Don't hesitate on this one and let the cheap price scare you. Touch response on this unit is great, better then I have seen on some units you have to hit 2-3 times to get the entry. Also with planars warranty there are no worries!

Use these all the time


We also have a POS product that uses touchscreens and the 1500MX is easy to install and very reliable. Has a good warranty with advance replacement if the product fails. The base is great for the POS environment.

This is a really nice touch screen. We make a popular restaurant POS software called FreePOS and we put these machines into our training facility not long ago. They have a bright clear picture and respond well to touch. The drivers are simple to...

I have been working with touch screens of all kinds and have found the Planar units to be the most reliable with a warranty that far surpasses any other display. This unit is fully sealed on the front and I can attest to that since I have spilled...
