This review is from: PLANAR PT1710mx-BK Black 17" Dual serial/USB 5-wire Resistive Touchscreen Monitor 300 cd/m2 800:1 Built-in Speakers
Pros: Responsive. Seems durable (had it just a short time). Bright enough for office use. Taking the stand off, I'm able to carry it and my 17" laptop in my Targus Laptop bag along with all of the power bricks and cables to run my lighting desk for Martin LightJockey. I can show up to a lighting gig with everything slung over my shoulder. Very nice.
Cons: Could be sharper but I understand the limitations of the resistive technology, you're not going to use something like this for digital photo processing.
I could never get the drivers to run the monitor as the secondary off my laptop, it absolutely must be setup as the main monitor. Not a deal breaker in my case but it was annoying enough to knock off a star. The driver config panel could be better.
Other Thoughts: I'm using this for my DMX Intelligent Lighting rig using Martin LightJockey. Works great as a 'busking' console.
