Summary: I am a traveling consultant so having a second monitor with me at all times was a huge plus. I am on my second monitor after TSA broke the first one. Though the resolution is less than I would like, it is great to have a second monitor. I replaced my old Dell Laptop with a Lenovo L540 and it will not recognize the USB monitor.
Pros: Great to have a second monitor when traveling.
Cons: Does not work with new Lenovo L540 Laptop. Limited resolution. Unadjustable resolution.
Summary: I bought this as a productivity monitor for use with my Dell laptop when traveling. I love the concept. It is lightweight, portable, and automatically flips between landscape and portrait just like a cellphone. It is nice to be able to hand it to a client so they can see my spreadsheet without having to walk around the table and stand behind me.
Summary: This will be fine for reading PDFs on the side while I work on stuff on the main monitor. Now that I see it the critical specs seem to be resolution and contrast -- 1366 x 768 high definition resolution, 500:1 Contrast Ratio -- and these are not especially grand numbers. It is also my first LED monitor or TV of any kind and I was surprised how little angled viewing this allows. I would not trust this for colors to edit photos or videos.
Summary: It wouldn't be a bad extra monitor to keep at your desk, however it seems to be a terrible portable monitor for several reasons: 1. The screen is very vulnerable with no protective glass or plastic like you find on a tablet. You will definitely need to buy a hard case if you plan to transport this with you. A neoprene sleeve will not be enough protection. 2. It is bulky, twice as thick as my laptop. 3.
Summary: Bought to use as 2nd monitor for work. You have to install software to use it. Once I did that, my internet shut down. Gave me lots of problems. Ended up having to uninstall it--and returned it. Got a regular monitor at Best Buy for the same price--but had to buy the adapter to plug in to USB.
