    ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solution products, today announced its latest touch-enabled LED display – the TD2220.

    The 22" (21.5" viewable) TD2220 display is equipped with advanced dual point optical touch technology featuring a hardened 8H level scratch resistant surface to ensure high touch accuracy and durability. With Full HD 1080p resolution, the TD2220 delivers excellent image quality for a variety of multimedia content, with a dustproof surface that is perfect for 2-point touch control, whether by finger, stylus, or even a gloved hand.

    With a USB HID compliant design, the TD2220 provides automatic touch functionality via USB connection under Windows operating systems. Paired with multiple video sources (DVI with HDCP and VGA inputs), and a 20,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, the TD2220 delivers an immersive viewing experience that is ideal for blur-free video and sharp business graphics.

    "The TD2220 is designed to serve the needs of commercial verticals such as kiosk and information desks where touch functionality is required, as well as for consumers who want a touch-enabled display," said Erik Willey, LCD monitor and PC product marketing director at ViewSonic. "This is because of the TD2220's dual point optical touch technology, which offers a highly accurate touch experience. Paired with its superior performance and durable 8H surface, this display will stand up to most any high traffic environment."

    To deliver a premium audio and visual experience, the TD2220 features integrated speakers with SRS Premium Sound for crystal clear sound as well as dual USB ports for the connection of a keyboard and mouse, or external storage devices to access files, and multimedia content. This Energy Star and EPEAT Silver certified display also supports different Eco modes for energy savings of up to 40% over same-sized monitors. Ideal for commercial environments, this touch-activated display also features a VESA mountable design and comes standard with a Kensington lock slot for security deterrence.

    The TD2220 comes standard with a 3-year limited warranty and ViewSonic's strongest pixel performance guarantee. The TD2220 will be available in North and Latin America the third week of October for an ESP of $329.

    This is what I've been waiting for.. hehehe the price is nice even at $329, but I still want it to keep dropping! Now let the price wars begin with touch screen monitors! I think once companies have something to offer that's 22" and under $200 then windows 8 will look more appealing! :toast: to go one step further.. and I think it will happen.. hehehe monitors coming with a built in OS like Android.. that offers computing straight out of the box with something like a Raspberry Pi board built in to take advantage of the touch screen monitor feature.

    You mean like this Asus hybrid All-In-One Android Windows solution:

    ASUS Transformer AiO official: all-in-one PC dual-boots Android and Windows 8

    For what it is this ViewSonic Touch screen doesn’t look too bad though. I’m personally not interested though. Generally speaking I don’t see touch screens as an essential PC component at this time and I would much rather see touch as a feature that could be added to typical monitors that have no touch support built in. For example, a frame like device you could buy and place over a monitor.

    Wishful thinking I'm sure but its what I would prefer for desktop touch solutions,...

    Yeah, they need to add an OS and make it detachable from it's base, and with wireless networking.

    Kind of like a tablet.

    I'm not talking about an all in one solution. That device will cost a lot compared to a monitor with a raspberry PI device built in. It's nice and it's really close but it's not meant to be used with anything else. I'm talking more like how TV's have Smart TV's with feature to view the web and play netflix straight from the TV, but you have the option to add what you want as well. I guess a "Smart Monitor"? :toast:

    Personally I won't be getting a touchscreen monitor anytime soon since I can't stand fingerprints on my display, but this is good news anyway.
