    TouchScreens / IWB Replacement

    Hi

    We are looking to purchase 4 touchscreen 65" devices in a new block for maths, they previously had 9 year old 'Interactive Education' Boards which have seen enough action. We are looking at the follow models has anybody used them or thinking of going down the same route? The rooms have no AV at all so weighing up the difference between a projector install + interactive board V Touchscreen TV.

    BenQ T650 65" TouchScreen
    Promethean 65" ActivPanel Touch Interactive Display
    Clevertouch 'S Series' 65"
    Alphatouch 65" from vii-networks

    Thank you.

    We've sold and installed the top 3 to schools and we've not heard anything bad what so ever. The install can sometimes be costly due to the weight of the screens.

    It's also worth considering Ctouch screens. I've seen a few demos of these and they look bulletproof

    Have used a CTouch and it is very good and sturdy, very much liked by the staff that used it aswell. Not sure on the cost though, sorry.

    We've got some CleverTouch 65" models here. Not had a single complaint since they went in. One thing to note is that the touch sensitivity works even when the screen is switched off (standby) if plugged into the computer - so when a TA lounges against the screen and the mouse is bouncing all over the place on the teacher's screen, you know why!

    BenQ is cheaper, but the worst. I haven't seen their new model in action, but after all the trouble I've had with previous screens I won't be going down that route again.

    i've only used their projectors and monitors, not had issues to date, and the sales guy we deal with there is helpful. might be worth another look.

    We have 3 BenQ TL550 work perfectly fine here connected to a fixed PC.... One of which uses the USB extension mentioned in @exim post and it works fine...that's been there nearly 2 years, other 2 have been up for just a year, but had no problems.

    Had issues with Clevertouch and most disappointing thing was the support. They kept going dark and Clevertouch wouldn't do anything unless we sent pictures. Hard to how on a picture! Also when they did come they were rude!

    AlphaTouch are good and warranty is a straight swap out if needed. Never had an issue with one though!

    Hi PRricho,

    We can help you with this as we work closely with many of the above brands in regards to Interactive screen.

    I have sent you over a PM

    Have Benqs at one site and find them unreliable and very finicky about which USB leads work, plus they don't play nice if you have SMART drivers installed.

    We had a CTouch on trial all last week and was well received by the staff that used it. I had a look at the BenQ at BETT as well as couple of others and there wasn't a huge amount to choose between them.

    For us I think it will come down to price and and whether we can get the smart notebook resources to work with it!

    well notebook will only work to 100% compatibility on a smart device, which is why for now I'm sold on the Smart E70 screens. Yes they're more expensive, but it will work how you expect it to work. I hear there is a limited discount period at the moment.

    Anybody used the Promethean 65" ActivPanel then? it is coming in the cheapest surprisingly. They can convert smart notebook files to there Activ Inspire software but not sure how it compares. Think a week demo unit is required!

    Wish I could have gone to BETT to see them all in action.
