Pro Included stylus lives in a port in the monitor
This monitor comes with a stylus which has a slot it fits in when not in use (very useful, as stylus are often the most misplaced accessories). It's a nice addition, as it helps improve touch accuracy over a finger and doesn't leave oily smudge marks. However, it requires a bit of force to register and offers more resistance than expected making scrolling and selecting more of a hassle than required.
Pro Integrated speakers provide the basic necessity of sound
The stereo 2 watt speakers aren't mind blowing, but they provide sufficient audio for the odd video. It's a nice inclusion to have, although if you plan on watching many movies or listening to music, you may want to invest in dedicated speakers.
Pro Pretty good contrast ratio provides vivid colors
The contrast ratio is measured at 736:1, which is slightly lower than the advertised 1000:1, however still high enough to provide good contrast between lights and darks. A panel with a high contrast ratio provides vivid colors, which leads to a more pleasing viewing experience.
Con Weak green and red color reproduction
Blue is the only color that appears true-to-life on the display - reds and greens don't display accurately. This is a big deal for anybody hoping to edit graphics, video, or any other color sensitive work. Some users might not notice the low (86%) sRGB gamut, but others will.
Con Only supports 2-point touch
Virtually every other touchscreen monitor offers at least 5-point touch, but most offer 10-point touch (some even offer 20-point touch). 2-point touch still allows for multi-touch gestures such as pinch to zoom and two-finger scrolling, however 3-point gestures won't register. You may find other limitations depending on which apps you use.
Con Not Windows 8 certified
To be Windows 8 certified, products need to have at least 5-point touch. As this monitor only offers 2-point touch, this isn't Windows 8 certified.
