Size, screen, touch feedback, hook up options
I bought this as a monitor to compliment my two 32in monitors. I got it because of the different angles that it can be adjusted to. I have mine sitting all the way down at a 80 degree angle and use it to watch sports or background tv shows while working. I also have my Spotify set on that monitor so the touch screen is great to easily pick a song and scroll through. It also functions great for least used tabs or for leaving social media or email open.
Looks great. Easy single cable connection for video and power with USB C. Using on a Mac Mini along with the Viewsonic Mac touch drivers. Works great.
The UT 1 is Acer's newest touch screen monitor, introduced in June, 2018. It's a very nice FHD (full high definition), thin bezel touchscreen made in the latest style. The UT 1 includes a USB Type C to USB Type C cable and USB Type C port which provides for data, power and a video signal in DisplayPort Alternative mode. It has an integrated 3.0 USB hub with two type A ports on the back side. If your computer does not have a Type C port then you can use HDMI for video & audio but you will also need a USB Type A to USB Type C cable for the touchscreen to work. These are common cables with today's smartphones and are commonly found online. Acer support mistakenly claims this is not a touch screen but, of course, it is. The touch screen works very well out of the box with Linux in one point mode. The touch screen surface is non-glare, not glassy; the touch screen display surface doesn't reflect light harshly and it doesn't show fingerprints easily. It is very responsive to touch. The base allows complete freedom of tilt angle, an important requirement for touch screens. I have been using touch screens since 1986 and this is the first touch screen I have ever used which allows such freedom.
This is my first touch screen monitor so I'm fascinated with touching the screen and how futuristic it is. I needed this for doing video work for events and the software UI works well with a touch panel. Also the angled stand works great for standing at a table / desk. -I actually like the glossy smart phone type of screen it has. -Color and brightness seems pretty good for the price. -The stand works well. It has a pretty ridged spring in it though. -Touch sensitivity seems to be as good as my LG V20 cell phone. The panel responds well even up to the very edge of the screen. -Has speakers, they're not great but not bad either but the fact it has anything and they work is a positive. -The size is perfect for travel. It folds flat 1.5". Perfect for sliding into a bag. -The weight is also perfect, it's one of the lightest panels out there! Great for mobility and flying with. -Takes HDMI and DP -It looks fairly professional / kinda wish they wouldn't put the parrot logo on the front. The red ViewSonic text looks better. /minorgripe -IPS and it makes sense for a monitor that tilts back like this one.
Easy to setup ,Sleek design ,and great visual display .. i am using it as a control surface for my home recording studio and it has worked flawlessly .. i just touch the faders on the mixer display of my software and adjust by hand like a real mixer
bright thin sensitive touch runs cool
they came fast, undamaged and exactly as described
Viewsonic has been my favourite brand since 1995, based on quality and customer service / salespersonship by the company. They sold me back then by faxing me info. I have yet to be let down by them, and this unit is great. My bestie is disabled, her lappy died, yet again, and I could only afford to hook her up with a tower. But, she needed a touchmonitor. I went with one that was bigger than her lappy screen, because she watches videos for the most part . I cannot say how happy I am with the performance, and her happiness in using this. I would recommend this to anyone who does not need a super giant screen , but it is a really good size and high res videos from NASA and other places look really good. I wish I had gotten 2 of these, even though I am not a touchscreen person. And the shipping was fast, the box was treated so nice by UPS it could have gone roght on a stores shelf, imho.
Excellent product. Quick to ship. Good communication. Thank you.
