PLANAR PXL2240MW Black 22
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Disappointing downgrade from earlier version. 06/06/2014

This review is from: PLANAR PXL2240MW Black 22" USB Optical Touchscreen Monitor Multi-Touch 220 cd/m2 1000:1 Built-in Speakers

Pros: Works well. Standard vesa mounts.

Cons: Fat black border and wide bezel makes it larger than necessary. No stylus.

Other Thoughts: This unit seems to be a cheapened version of the excellent 2230MW, but without a lower price.

The wide black border around the display makes swipe-in gestures easier, but when added to the thick plastic frame, it becomes too hefty.

Buying a separate stylus is not a great expense, but I miss the convenience of being able to store it in a recess on the monitor.

Hanns-G HT231HPBU Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very affordable touchscreen monitor. Smooth glass front like a tablet, responding to swipe-in gestures, and easy to clean. Standard VESA mounts.

Cons: Speakers are poor, only suitable for system sounds. Wide black border around display makes unit larger than necessary. Touch will not work with USB cable over 6' long.

Other Thoughts: We need about 8' cable run from monitor to computer tower. I tried a 6' cable + 3' extension, and a 10' solid one. In both cases, the touch screen would stop responding after some minutes of use. With a 6' cable it works, so that must be the max length. Other brand monitors in the office work fine with longer cables.

Pros: Price. Form factor.

Cons: Troublesome network card. Some instability.

Other Thoughts: The small case is perfect for the cabinets that we put our office computers in. When the 500B model was discontinued we switched to these instead. Where the older model was solid, these are flaky. In some stations they will not complete a network connection, and when they do the transfer rate is in the single digits. We're also experiencing occasional, spontaneous reboots.
