    Recommend us a monitor

    So, our little darlings have gone through about 6 monitors so far this year, with their fists.

    As our stock of spares is dwindling, I'm now on the prowl for a new monitor for our stock.

    My requirements are:

    1. Must be hard glass front
    2. Must have buttons which can't be picked off.
    3. Must have VESA mount on the back (and not 'sunk in') as they'll be used on HP USDT mounts.
    4. 17" or 19" size.

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

    I bought one of these recently to replace the CCTV monitor in the office. There are 2 listed there cant remember which one it was but it seems pretty decent does the job.

    Iiyama P1705S 17" Hard Glass TFT Monitor - www.misco.co.uk

    IIYAMA PB1705S 17 LCD Hard Glass Monitor 4:3 1280x - www.misco.co.uk

    Hope that might be of some help.

    Has that one been replaced by the P1906S-B1?

    Unreasonable requirements ... give them CRT's, and tell the numpty who is supervising them that if they dont start fulfilling the job/legal requirements you will fit a webcam and start issuing disciplinary requests with the evidence.

    Firstly I'd agree that SLT need to deal with the disciplin issue as that is unacceptable full stop.
    For the new hardware, Iiyama P1705S 17" Hard Glass TFT Monitor - www.misco.co.uk as suggested above is a good screen.

    Agree with that completely, and tbh if a kid is going to punch a screen if you put glass ones there they are more then likely to punch that as well and end up with glass cuts along with you having a broken monitor.

    non glass based but i bought some of these recently - seem pretty good.

    Personal feelings on it? If they cut themselves, then we have some evidence and can make them pay for it, or refer it to the police.

    It is a classroom management issue, yes, but that's something to tackle in the long run. Getting a suitable set of replacement monitors is something I can do now.
