Product is good, but a gamble
Pros: Product is cheap and sturdy. Good warranty.
Cons: No built in speakers. I received 2 now and neither one plays sound even at 100% volume.

Works as intended
Pros: Sturdy and well-made from external inspection. Hefty and very solid casing. Sufficient tilt adjustment, built in speakers nice to have (still need regular speakers for decent sound, but good as backup or if you don't want clutter). Setup was quick and painless on Vista64 system. My 2 and 4 year old love it. The 2 year can insert children's DVD, wait for the Play button to show, and operate the video on her own, which she does after I thought she went to sleep. 4 yr old can now operate children's software with my guidance. She had a lot of frustration w/ the mouse before. Don't use any click-drag software w/ this or any touchscreen, does not track well in continuous contact. Most kid stuff will drag for you with just one click (no need to hold down mouse buttons). The larger screen seems to swallow up my petite girls, but the larger on-screen buttons as a result makes it easier for uncoordinated fingers. Display quality is fine.
Cons: The price is hefty as well, but all 19" touchscreens are expensive and Newegg has very competitive pricing and good variety of models in this size.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't buy this large a size for retail operations, waste of money as customers don't need this level of resolution. Best use is with preschool and toddlers. They will have a computer advantage over their peers by understanding how to access software and the concept of storing files. My 4 yr old can navigate and print our own coloring and lettering practice pages. So, she can read computer related terms. Scary that she can explain the word "Copies" in the print window.
