    We fitted sound bars to ours. Running from optical out on the TV to the bar.

    We only brought 2.0 sound bar (no sub) and works a treat.

    Just tried it out and ...

    very underwhelmed

    I seem to have to treble-click at times (but not all the time)

    trying to get the X to work at top right is the most problematical.

    Writing about 1 cm offset

    Typical behaviour?

    Not a problem we have encountered when setting them up.
    1920 × 1080 and 1280 × 720 are the recommended screen resolutions for best performance and most accurate touch.

    Changed to 1280 x720 and its a lot better

    (It was on 1024 x768)

    I then tried to get clever and try and do Minorit Report style on Google Earth but came a cropper PDQ

    Can you simulate mouse-over/hover with this one - is there some setting that can be tweaked?

    1080p matching monitors is an affordable setup. any resolution outside native is a compromise IMHO.

    Yes common issue that a lot of schools are sticking with 1024 x 768 resolution which was the common 4:3 resolution for old smartboards. Shame to spend £3000 on a fancy touch screen and limit the resolution.

    I would run at 1080p if possible as icons can be enlarged in the windows settings. The newest SMART panel is 4 x the resolution of 1080p, which is getting overkill IMO.

    Again if you are spending £3000 on the touch-screens is probably worth the extra £100 to get a matching widescreen monitor if required.

    Another touch-screen brand (one of Jon-Pauls recommendations on another thread) is also a major monitor manufacturer and I know they include 1080p desktop monitors free of charge as part of the package.
