The 2709W has strange non-mechanical buttons.Except for the power button, the buttons on
my monitor do not work reliably.I can
press them many times and nothing happens, then the menu appears only to disappear
again.They often tantalisingly start to
hum with a blue LED glow but do not respond to finger pressing by providing a
menu.My instinctive response is to
press the surface of the button harder but this seems to fail to work.Eventually, menus do appear and the same
behaviour happens on the selection of submenus; sometimes resulting in the menu
collapsing without a selection being made.It is all very frustrating and lack of a mechanical feedback is
psychologically damaging ...
How can you make these buttons respond to finger
presses more reliably?Why does Dell make a monitor
with buttons like this; is it just that they are cheap to manufacture?
