Most touch buttons work well if you know how to press them. The ones on the HPs I've used work fine so I assume the ones on this Samsung should be fine as well.
Why pay so much for a 27" TN panel display? TN panels look horrible once you get used to IPS / PLS , OLED or Plasma displays
240ish (tax included) isn't so much for me personally.
But still wanted to pay a reasonable price for a monitor that can be mainly used for gaming.
Far as TN panels looking horrible compared to what you've listed, that's just your opinion.
While I can admit that it doesn't look as sharp, it's good enough and therefore not enough to deter my personal use.
If it ain't Boeing,I ain't going!
