    Great monitor!
    Okay, this thing is just fantastic. A more detailed look at it shows that it is a 4-wire technology. I don't personally know what that means, but if you are wondering and want to look it up now you can.

    This monitor comes in a nice box and is well packed. The stand is great! It is a dual-pivot stand with one pivot point at the back of the stand and the other pivot point on the monitor with about a 7 inch bracket between. This allows for a nearly flat operation of the monitor or a "normal use" screen position, and nearly every position in-between.

    The drivers come on a mini-CD, so if you have a recent computer with a slot-load drive beware and DO NOT PUT IT IN. Do yourself a favor and go download the latest driver. The one we got had drivers from 2008 (uhh?) and online they had a newer driver from 2009. I don't know if I am allowed to post external links, but just google for "eeti egalax touch homepage" and you will find it. We are a Mac shop so I can only test it on a Mac but it works fantastically on the Mac. I would say the software is "top notch" not so much because it is perfect but because they spent time to make it compatible with everything. They have drivers for: Mac OS 9, Mac OS X (ppc), Mac OS X (Intel), Linux, QNX, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows 9X, Windows ME, Windows NT4, Windows 2000/XP, Windows CE 6, Windows Embedded, and DOS. Yes, DOS. How in the world you use a touchscreen in DOS I don't know, but the fact they bothered to says a lot.

    Calibration out of the box was pretty darn close. There are two modes for calibration, a 4 point mode and a 25 point mode. Don't bother with the 4-point. We accidentally wiped the calibration out (don't click the CLEAR button on the calibration screen unless you have a mouse handy) and tried to calibrate with the 4-point. It works but has a lot of play. The 25-point left us bang-on everywhere we touched.

    I really like the fact that the buttons are on the side and pretty much flush. This means you won't accidentally press a button while feeling around for the power button. The only thing we really didn't like is the fact that the cables are hard-wired. You get a VGA cable and a USB cable, both of which are hard-wired into the screen. While usually this isn't a problem, it does mean that if you need to go farther than about 5 feet you will need to buy extensions, you can't just swap out the cables.

    Bottom line: Would I buy another? Heck yes. Am I looking forward to buying the 22" version just because I can? Oh yeah. Is it as good quality as a top name-brand touch-screen from a company whose name rhymes with Shmelo? No. Is the extra 3% in quality worth spending 3 times as much? Not in my checkbook!

    PROS: Easy to setup, great price, decent software control, Mac compatible

    CONS: Hardwired cables, requires drivers

    Mac Compatible
    Now works on all Mac computers through the DisplayPort or Thunderbolt port using a Monoprice adaptor so long as you perform all computer updates. Find Mac drivers online here:

    PROS: Good quality at a Fantastic price
    Mac OSX Lion support

    CONS: Low contrast ratio

    2 Years
    We bought this display to use logging in visitors. It worked pretty good, but we had to redesign the login app to keep away from the edges, they don't register well within 1/2" of the sides.

    2 years of being on from 6AM until 8PM has killed the display. The backlight dies on a regular basis requiring a cooldown time before it dimmly comes back on.

    PROS: Pretty Cheap

    Works decently

    CONS: Dead at 2 years

    Not the sharpest display

    Touch is never perfectly accurate

    Purchased this unit for a church to use for a touch screen for a lighting board in the auditorium. Hooked it up, connected it, and it didn't respond to any touch commands. I knew there was a chance of this not working, so I went to fire up the menu on the display to find any sort of settings I could manipulate. To my surprise, the entire menu system was in Chinese! I whipped out the manual to find out which option is the language settings, and it was very unclear, as the manual showed nearly a dozen options, while the screen only showed five. I chatted with tech support to see if they could help, they were basically useless, except for the fact they gave me an RMA to return the thing. I've been happy with everything purchased from Monoprice until now... I guess I'll stay away from the more expensive products that have programming involved, as there's a chance it's in Chinese!

    PROS: Compact in size, very sturdy

    CONS: Unit came programmed in Chinese - could not figure out how to change it. Not compatible with the Zero88 lighting consoles.

    Horrible nonexistent support
    I have 3 of these monitors and they work great. Unfortunately one of the cheap power supplies died. I contact monoprice support and they don't know anything about the power supply. They can't get me one or tell me where to get one. I am more than willing to buy a new power supply but they don't even know what kind of power supply it is. I was told to find a 100-240v 50/60hz power supply. They didn't even know the output voltage of the power supply. I only need to know what size barrel is needed to get a proper fit of a new power supply. So i guess I am supposed to just order a random power supply and hope it works.

    I know that I will no longer buy anything electronic from monoprice again. Nor will I recommend anyone to buy anything more than cheap cables.

    I wonder how this would have went down if I was still within the 1 year warranty. Would they just tell me to find a power supply myself? How can they not at least have access to replacement parts for products they still currently sell? This is unbelievable to me

    PROS: The monitor works great, too bad monoprice support is terrible

    CONS: Support is worthless

    This is a very good looking, initially good performing device. They work quite well as desk monitors, I now have four in my office whose touch function is broken or beyond the hope of realignment. I have sold point of sale, automation, kiosk, and similar hardware for over ten years and have never come across such a bad product.

    I ordered a few for some of my budget oriented customers, thinking an inexpensive new product would be better than used or refurbished machinery. I can't believe how wrong I was, now that I have had serious trouble with 5 out of 9 of these monitors that I have handled.

    I have had to resort to repairing them myself (broken USB connectors), replacing the crappy stands out of my own pocket, and even replacing them with other products due to perpetual alignment and calibration users also out my own pocket.

    Monoprice support refuses to bend a warranty by even enough time to adjust for difference between the purchase date and the date the device was actually unboxed and put into service. I am about to take this up with my credit card company, as these monitors are clearly a violation of basic warrant of merchantability, which is a federal law which cannot be disclaimed.

    PROS: Inexpensive, stylish, non bulky, functional for the length of warranty (just), very good picture, makes good desk monitor when the touch invariably breaks.

    CONS: Lasts between 9 and 18 months, constant alignment issues, unstable, bouncy stand, fragile USB connector, failing power supplies.

    Dead after a year and a half
    We bought this for a sign in machine in our lobby. It was on for roughly 11 hours a day for a year and a half. The screen was always a little rough. It flickers just a little, the pixels are large enough to be noticeable, and the light is a little dimmer than we would like.

    A week ago the back light just stopped working. Power cycling it brings the screen back on. We figured we would just buy a new one. Every day for the past week we open Monoprice and we see the same thing. Out of stock, expected today. Every day for a week!

    I contacted support, they said I should sign up to be notified when it arrives, but otherwise said the ETA is today, which is obviously incorrect. So now we have a dying screen and no idea when we will be able to replace it.

    Monoprice touch screens
    We've got 18 of these touch screens being used as check in kiosks. We are very happy with them. In the two years we've used monoprice touch screens we've had two hardware failures. One in warranty and one out, however given the low cost, we keep a spare on hand. You can buy 3 of these for what you'd pay for a different brand touch screen.
    Listing consistency as a con because we've had the occasional unit that displays colors differently in default mode, no big deal, we just adjust it to match the others, and if it was being used alone we'd hardly notice.

    PROS: Price, aesthetics, functionality, durability

    CONS: Reliability, consistency

    Great product, great price, prompt delivery.
    February 13, 2014
    Wonderful product. Thanks again, Monoprice. This is a great deal.

    PROS: Compact, Bright, Works Well! This works as well as any I have seen. I have a 10 year old Elo Touch Master, and the MONOPRICE LCD Touch Screen is vastly superior. I can not believe what a great value this is.

    CONS: Windows 7 didn't recognize the monitor. Thanks to another post, I was able to download the driver. The mini CD didn't fit my computer as it would have fallen through.
