Pretty good – Wide 8.9" USB Touch Screen Film (Makes LCD Screens Touch Sensitive) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Works out of the box, just plug and play.
- Comes with a driver for Windows.
Cons:
- Has a lot of exposed electronics and wires.
- Comes with a driver for Linux that I can't get to work on my Ubuntu 10.04 laptop. Ubuntu 10.04 recognizes it as a touch screen at once, but I haven't managed to get it calibrated yet. Tricky business...
Other:
I've installed it in my Acer Aspire One and made a video of it here:

Bottomline:
If you're not afraid of putting a couple of hours of work into mounting this thing, then go ahead and buy!
