Touch screen monitors

Here is a list of small-ish (20”-27”) touch screen monitors and their sample rate (poll time) measured with mouserate application.

You want at least 200Hz for fast-paced rhythm games to be playable, but in reality, higher the better. For general application usage, you want something around 100Hz for a good tablet-like experience, but 60Hz is acceptable if you are not too picky.

Note that this is just based on user data, there is no guarantee that a model manufactured on a certain date uses a specific touch controller - your mileage may vary. It is also not a recommendation for or against these monitors; there are many more aspects to consider other than just poll rate, such as number of simultaneous touches, ability to correctly recognizes taps/holds/swipes, and drivers / software compatibility, etc. Your best best is to ask around the community and get recommendations for specific games that you want to play.

And of course, IR touch sensors are also a thing, but they are not covered here. Most of them are not all that great, as they are designed for industrial use, not for gaming.
