The following reviews should help you to compare popular Samsung touch screen monitors with other available models.
What is a Touchscreen Monitor?
A touch screen monitor is a television or computer monitor that can detect the pressure of a touch (either by a finger, or by a stylus) within a specified display area. While more usual with Smartphones or tablet computers, touchscreens are also useful in many settings such as schools, offices, public locations such as libraries and information kiosks as well as for individual use when computer keyboards are not an option.
Touchscreens allow the user to interact with the computer directly and to do so without any sort of hand-held device such as a mouse or touch-pad. These kinds of screens can be attached to household appliances to enable ease of use, or used in more traditional settings, such as in conference rooms or lecture halls. Some technologies, such as GPS devices and hand-held video games rely on touchscreens to work properly.
The technology that allows touchscreens to work entails layers of glass which, in turn is coated with coated with a transparent conductor that enables the conduction of electrical impulses which in turn detect the location of a ‘touch’ on the screen and relay that information to the computer. Many of these screens are, in turn, coated with various polymers that enable them to stand up to repeated touching without breaking down or becoming jammed.
