Touch Screen Monitors

0

Touch screen monitors allow you to control a computer without using a keyboard and mouse. They are ideal as advertising kiosks, POS monitors, self-service systems, and also in the home or office.

What should I look for when choosing a touchscreen monitor?

Touch Technology

  • Capacitive - offers truer colours and greater durability and reacts when you touch the screen even lightly. Multi-touch, meaning the monitor can detect and processes multiple touches at once, is becoming more and more common. They cannot be operated with gloves and are difficult to use with wet hands.
  • Resistive - can be easily controlled even with gloved or wet hands and compared with capacitive displays, they are usually cheaper. They provide lower-quality colour reproduction, are less durable and do not support multi-touch.

Use and Aspect Ratio

UseAt home or in the officeAs an advertising kiosk, POS or self-service system
Suitable aspect ratioWidescreen (16:9)Widescreen (16:9) and all other options (5:4, 4:3 and more)

Panel Type

  • IPS/S-IPS monitors - excel in natural colours, low power consumption and wide viewing angles. The disadvantage is a higher purchase price.
  • TN monitors - often characterised by low response times. Compared with IPS monitors, they are cheaper, offer lower-quality colour reproduction and narrower viewing angles. While cheaper TN monitors are the sufficient for less demanding users, models with 4ms response times are popular with gamers.
  • MVA/PVA monitors - in terms of price and picture quality, these are somewhere between IPS/S-IPS and TN monitors. They provide more realistic colour reproduction and wider viewing angles than TN monitors and are cheaper than IPS monitors.

Screen Surface

  • Matte - reflects little ambient light; provide less-saturated colour reproduction.
  • Glossy - Provide vibrant and realistic colours but reflect much more ambient light so the display can be hard to see in bright sunlight.
  • Anti-glare - a compromise between glossy and matte screens; they are easier to view in direct sunlight than glossy screens but offer lower quality colour reproduction.

Connectors

Before buying, make sure the monitor has at the least one compatible port with your computer. If not, you won't be able to connect your new monitor to it.

Touch Screen Monitors

Classic CRT monitors with vacuum screens are a thing of the past. It's time to get an LCD monitor! Here are some tips on how to choose the best one for you.

The first criteria is diagonal size, and you have many different options to consider in our product catalogue. Diagonal size is measured in inches (1" = 2.54cm), and the standard size range is 10" to 30", with 19" to 24" LCD monitors being the most popular choice today.

How to choose the right LCD Monitor

Do you need a widescreen monitor or one with a classic 4:3 aspect ratio? Widescreen monitors are ideal for watching movies, playing games, and browsing the internet, while classic 4:3 monitors with diagonals of 17"-19" are ideal for office work. As for the display surface, you can choose from matte or glossy. Glossy displays deliver enhanced colour contrasts and better readability while matte displays reduce screen reflection.

It's not only the number of pixels on the screen (display resolution) that determines the quality of a monitor, the size of a monitor's dot pitch is also important. Comparing monitors of two different sizes but of the same resolution, you'll find that the larger one produces a coarser image. This can be slightly reduced by font-smoothing functions, which are integrated in most operating systems. To get the most out of your monitor, you'll need to adjust the screen resolution, as the native resolution might differ from model to model.

Response time indicates how many milliseconds it takes for a pixel to change - the lower the response time, the smoother the change. Brightness determines the luminous intensity of an image and higher contrast ensures blacker blacks and whiter whites.
 

In addition to basic D-Sub analog inputs, modern monitors also feature digital DVI inputs. Some monitors offer multiple options together with HDMI inputs. Before you select a particular model, be sure to check whether it is compatible with your graphics card.

We recommend choosing a monitor with a larger diagonal size and higher resolution. Opt for a model with a lower response time, higher brightness and contrast, and check that the monitor features DVI/HDMI inputs.
