There are so many monitor and screen options available to you, that sometimes it seems impossible for you to decide. GVision knows that touch screen monitors are the future of technology, and we consistently see inaccurate or false information circulating about large touch screen monitors. We compiled our top 5 inaccuracies for touch screen monitors to help you find the best screen for you!
1.) Touch screens completely replace keyboards.
Touch screens don’t replace keyboards; they complement them! Sometimes the bulky nature of a keyboard and a mouse can make processes more complicated rather than simple. This problem can be solved with a system that has the best of both worlds: a keyboard, and a large touch screen monitor. When you need to launch a program on your screen or desktop, does it make more sense to just reach across and touch the icon, or to grab the mouse, move it to where it’s needed, and double-click? Simply touching the icon is not only faster when time is of the essence in competitive business environments, but can make training simpler for retailers and cashiers.
2.) Touch screens require more maintenance.
The myth of short-lasting, large touch screen monitors still continues today, and is completely fabricated. The average keyboard needs to be replaced every one to two years with everyday use, and your mouse needs to be replaced every year. The average large touch screen monitor can withstand high volume usage for eight years before needing maintenance from a technician. Touch screens also lack buttons or keys that have the potential to be broken or worn off through use.
3.) Touch screens are harder to use.
Touch screens are valued as a great option for those with mobility issues. Those suffering from ailments such as arthritis, who find it difficult to grasp and click a mouse or rest their hands on a keyboard, can find relief in touch screen technology. Being able to directly access icons or documents on a screen can ease the burden on users that have physical challenges. Touch screens also have the added ability to make computer usage faster, and more intuitive for all users.
4.) Touch screens are less secure than keyboards.
Touch screens introduce the possibility of fingerprint security, a more secure method than the traditional passwords offered by regular monitors. A password can easily be given to those who aren’t necessarily supposed to access your device. A fingerprint passcode is a great way to safeguard against these intrusions.
5.) Touch screens are less durable.
Touchscreens offer more protective features than their keyboard and mouse alternatives. Because they are built to be touched and handled, they are made from hard-coated glass, and are not affected by dirt, rain, grease, or dust. They stand up to heavy usage that’s often required of large touch screen monitors in settings like stores, restaurants, hospitals, and other high-traffic settings. And due to the glass that is used, they are much easier to clean than computer keyboards and other hardware extensions.
