they called ours a "touch" but it doesn't work like any touchscreen I've used. You have to PRESS firmly and hope that the sensor somewhere behind the screen is able to differentiate what you're pressing. Our unit was very finnicky and unresponsive upon arrival. We had to press the menu button several times to get anything up. Though we finally were able to set up a slideshow, the sequence was not at all randomly generated. We set a timer to preserve the life of the backlight display, however the thing burned out on day two. It wasn't really worth the money, from day one. We called the manufacturer to report defective merchandise covered by warranty. They had us send the box back to a plant. When I called later to follow up on replacement, was told that plant had been closed. They tried to make good on it, but what a lot of hoopla to go through to get what I paid for.
