The Downsides of Screens with Buttons

November 4, 2019

When it comes to owning a business, many different factors will help increase your following. One of those details happens to be having a custom display screen installed. Now, before the initial installation, there are a few options to consider before making the final choice on which screen will fit your business perfectly. 

The most essential? Choosing whether or not is should have buttons as controls. Here’s why you should avoid that altogether and opt for a touch screen display, instead:

Cons of Screens With Buttons

Buttons Take Up Space

In the area you’re thinking about having your screen installed, is it big or small? Well, like most desired spots, if it’s too small, then you could encounter a problem if you opt for buttons. Think about it: Adding buttons around a screen will increase how much room it takes up. 

And unlike a touch screen display, a screen with buttons won’t necessarily be flush with the wall — something that should be considered, especially for those that are afraid a screen will be an eye-sore.

Buttons Wear Out Over Time

Picture this: You’re at an ATM, and when you’re about to start the transaction, you look down to press the button of your choice. But upon pushing it, nothing happens. Sometimes, buttons wear out and will need to be replaced. Another possibility? Buttons can fall off — which is a headache no business owner wants to face.
