Take a look at the cleaver touch displays - @Millgate should be able to help you out.
VERY expensive compared to a IWB in the first case but they are great bits of kit.
This is my first post so hope some of you could offer some advice.
I've recently replaced all of our monitors with nice big 24" ones that look lovely at 1920 x 1080 which is great and you'd think would make for nice happy users. Not so. The problem arises with the teacher PC that controls the IWB. Our old monitors were 17" CRTs that I had inherited with a little VGA splitter to send 1024 x 768 to both monitor and projector. No bother. IWBs are square, the new monitors are rectangle - so a clone looks crap on the monitor or IWB, whichever way around it is. I knew this before I did it so bought a load of cheap dual-output graphics cards and configured them seperately to their native resolutions with an extended desktop setup. Now the users can't/won't grasp how this works despite showing them lots of times and want (seriously) their old monitors back. They've already been melted down and turned into spitfires or something by now though so no chance of that.
Our IWBs are getting quite old now and I love the look of the massive LCD touchscreens. No calibration, clones easily, kids don't block the projector, the list goes on for the pros. The only cons I can see are smaller size which I don't think would be too much of a problem and possibly durability. I work in a special needs school where equipment takes a lot of punishment. I was looking at the big 55" Iiyama one and couldn't find anything about durability on their site or resellers sites. I can't find any reviews either. Does anyone on here have any experience with these especially with regards to how tough they are?
Cheers in advance

I've got a few, they're very tough. Keep in mind you'll need to buy a smart license for each display if your staff intend to use smart notebook (5-600 each).
You should be able to get a company out to do a demo with one...
CleverLCD have their own offering (Lynx). We have 8 of the CleverLCD's now and the newer model are much better than the old model (inbuild speakers, plug and play etc).
@Millgate could organise a demo i'm sure for most stuff, Luke organised our stuff with Sahara for the CleverLCD
We have Clever's on trollies.
Much more useful than a wall mounted screen and projector.
And durable, I was asked to pucnh the demo one. I hurt my hand LOL..
As a few people have said, we supply CleverLCDs. Really cool bits of kit so if you want quotes or demos, just let me know
Do you sell the 55" Iiyamas?
We've got about 4 of them here. The teacher's love them. However, we're now standardising on Epson interactive projectors instead, as they're half the price up front (not my decision on this one).

How much Luke (doesn't have to be an official quote)? I'm hoping to be allowed to buy 16.
