Planar Helium PCT2785

 

The Planar Helium is a beautifully designed 27-inch touch-screen monitor featuring 20-point progressive capacitive touch, MVA panel technology and a nice selection of ports.

Excellent touch response. Solid color quality. Lots of ports.

Some touch wire interference. So-so grayscale performance. No USB 3.0.

Planar Helium PCT2785 review

 

27in touchscreen with superb contrast levels, but it's expensive and image quality could be better

It's a shame the Planar Helium PCT2785's image quality doesn't match its superb contrast levels, but our biggest concern is the price. The Helium PCT2785 is more expensive than the superior Iiyama Prolite T2735MSC, though, and we think the Iiyama...

Decent

 

I have one of these running on Ubuntu GNU/Linux. It doesn't support the full 10 point touch but it does single touch out of the box. Really doesn't do much unless you get the Easystroke Gestures app but when you do you can do a lot of cool stuff!

No multi-gesture support out of the box on Ubuntu GNU/Linux.

Works well on Ubuntu 13.04

 

I bought this as a compliment to my Thinkpad W510 touch (dual/two finger touch) when I dock it at work. I used to have a non-touch LCD and everytime I would dock and just use the single screen I would get frustrated by lack of touch, it made for a very...

Single touch works out of box on Ubuntu (GNU/Linux) 13.05.

Dual touch, or the full 10 finger touch does not work out of box. I haven't figured out how to get it to work yet.

Great Monitor

 

I thoroughly enjoy using this monitor. I was a little worried about the price but don't regret the purchase one bit. I would definitely buy this again and recommend this for anyone using a Windows 8 desktop. Just remember to change the down-scaling to...

Very nice!

 

I needed a multi-touch monitor to use for application development. This one works very well for that purpose. The touch is accurate and responsive, and with up to 20 touch points, I can test just about any application.The only gripe I have is that the...

Great Monitor

 

This is my second Planar touch screen monitor. The first was the PX2230MW. Both are excellent monitors. This screen is large and can take up a lot of real estate on the desk but I have them attached to a monitor arms. They are responsive tools for...

Great Customer Support

 

I learned from other reviews how to change the scaling with an ATI Graphic card so the touchscreen works right. But I was having a problem getting the built in speakers to work. I left a message on the support website expecting a response in a week or...
