Summary: The unit is of good quality, fairly light and a little thicker than I expected but since it powers up by way of USB and I don't have to carry another charger around which is a huge plus. I have to review several reports at times and I do a lot of presenting virtually so this has been a huge help for when I am on the road for work. The integrated stand, and the position sensor are great features.
Summary: I'm completely addicted to multiple monitors to the point that I had pretty much stopped using my laptop anywhere but in my home office. This has made me portable once again. So far I have set it up with two windows 7 laptops (a toshiba and a dell). Portability: Surprisingly lightweight, but kind of thick.
Summary: This works great under windows / mac. Unfortunately, I use Linux for almost all of my computers, rendering this as an interesting conversation piece. Each new kernel seems to get closer, though... so I'm still hopeful that it'll work one of these days.
Excerpt: Connected to my Dell Latitude and Asus laptops w/o any issues. Nice bright screen, with great detail for working with documents. Light weight but does have some thickness. I use full time at work as an extended desktop. And it packs in my backpack just fine next to my laptop. If not protected I can see how the shiney plastic housing may show scuffs later. Overall very satisfied. Used a longer USB to micro USB that I had from an old camera and it works fine.
Good monitor, plus best solution for REDUCING BRIGHTNESS

Summary: Pros: -Light, less than my Surface Pro that I am using it with. -Only requires 1 usb port to run. -Least expensive portable monitor out there -Ability to have in portrait or landscape mode -Useful and somewhat flexible built in stand Cons: -Position of usb cord is not the best. -No inherent way to adjust brightness (will discuss awesome solution below) -Could have reduced thickness but its still light -Does consume more power than other portable monitors, 8W compared to...
Summary: Really makes road trips with the laptop more productive.
Pros: Price, size, portability are all upthere
Cons: Not an immediate plug and play, but Win 8.1 did find a driver. Resolution just average. Confusing install horserace between Win 8.1 pnp process and the supplied install instructions. It matters WHICH usb port you use.
Summary: I needed a portable monitor I could keep in my backpack and this has been great. The only downside is the placement of the usb input is inconvenient. It is placed on the back near the center right by the stand and can knock the stand down. It also feels a bit cheap as the plastic does not have a real solid feel but it is great for the price!
