Summary: This was a very affordable alternative to a second computer monitor. I needed two screens for my graduate studies (auditing and tax work) and the second monitor makes reviewing spreadsheets so much more comfortable.
Summary: I returned it after using it once, it may be okay if you need to present slideshows at some sort of conference or expo where outlet space is limited, but I was incorrect in thinking I could use this as my everyday monitor.
Pros: -Price for what you get is pretty good -Simple dual-monitor setup after you install software -no obvious color/contrast issues -no need for power cords, just takes up 2 USB slots -lightweight -collapsible stand
Cons: -Driver software has no settings UI that I could find, but as I don't have a CD drive I got the newest driver software from the company's website, disc might be different -Company driver page is a mess, hard to find what you need -Driver software is very fickle with some programs, won't play VLC ...
Summary: I bought this to use for work as I am an auditor and spend all day staring at multiple spreadsheets and various other documents. I work at client sites rather than out of an office, so I carry this around with me everyday.
Summary: OK, the display is not bad.(Thank you B. Nerd..... for your review. ) To LOGITECH, you might want to get with these guys and and make an ARX version of your software that works with their display as opposed to your idiotic part on your G910 kb that blocks part of MY display.
Pros: It works!!! USB cable fits well ( Some posters have said that buying another cable is better. For me...NOT.. see below
Cons: This is not a con but some posters have stated that they were trying to use this as some sort of display for their games!(I'm assuming AAA titles) Come on! Some of these games don't work well with $1000 AMD R9 series or NVIDIA GTX series video cards and $1000 monitors! How the heck do you think t...
Pros: Monitor is great for the price and was well worth it for a few months. The screen is very clear and the monitor is great for a second monitor to increase productivity. I bought a sleeve for the monitor while it is in my laptop bag to help protect it since the construction is not the sturdiest but...
Cons: After a few months of almost daily use, this monitor has began to flicker constantly (about once a minute or more) and is becoming unusable. While flickering, both monitors (my main monitor on my laptop and this monitor) are very hard to see and then the second monitor will act as if it is discon...
Summary: I would NOT buy this again. I don't know if the company makes junk but the next monitor will probably not be AOC. 8 months of light use (maybe once a month for a day) should not equal a dead monitor. Buyer Beware!
Pros: It works great as a portable second monitor for your laptop
Cons: However it just died out of nowhere three days ago with light use over the 8 months I owned it.
Summary: On Mac running Yosemite, don't use the driver on the disc. It said the cert expired. I continued and installed anyway, but screen didn't turn on. I thought I got a defective unit and was thinking of returning it. Went to their website and downloaded the latest driver and it finally worked.
Pros: Great price. Relatively easy to set up. Bright. Lightweight.
Cons: No brightness and other adjustments. A little bit bulky. Some animation problems using with Mac.
Summary: Works very nicely in Windows 7 64-bit. Framerate is smooth, picture is great. Only uses a single usb cable and a single usb slot (2 slots if your USB slots are low voltage (included cable accommodates this)) Update: Display is still working great.
