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.
Pros: Great to have a second monitor when traveling.
Cons: Does not work with new Lenovo L540 Laptop. Limited resolution. Unadjustable resolution.
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.
Summary: Ok, so if you are using linux, you should already know that a non-standard device may take a few hours of tweaking to get working. That being said, I only spent about an hour and a half tweaking with xrandr and kernal versions to get it working; it is however possible to get this puppy running in...
Pros: I was quite excited when I bought this product. Excellent for extra desktop space when you need it. The screen is plenty bright, and manages basic desktop stuff just fine.
Cons: Where it falters is with interference with other drivers, nVidia Optimus it seems especially. Even with the screen removed, if I go to play a game, many games will error out. I was getting frustrated because I didn't pinpoint it to the LCD at first, then when I uninstalled the AOC LCD drivers eve...
Summary: I used this on my Windows 7 work laptop. It installed by itself, worked fine. The screen is very pleasant to view, bright and glossy. I took the monitor to and from work and then on the 10th day, the MicoUSB port became loose and the cable wouldn't stay in, as a result the monitor no longer connects...
Summary: It feels cheap, it looks cheap. It emits a high pitched hum that you can hear when it's quiet (put on some Slayer). It's only 1366x768 and it doubles as a mirror. With that said, the thing just works. It's super reliable, and requires no AC power. Only USB.
Summary: (Skip to AOC REVIEW or the CONCLUSION if you just want my thoughts on this monitor) WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR I'm running an older macbook pro (2008) and needed more real estate on the go... a portable 2nd display seemed like a great solution.
Excerpt: This product is working great for what I use it for. I bought it to attach to my laptop, be portable and be able to read my text books. It works fantastic for that. But when I choose to put a movie on there, either from online or dvd, the quality is horrible.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Lightweight
Cons: Inaccurate Colors, Little Detail, Not Sharp Image
