Summary: This monitor is very light and the only issue carrying it is finding a suitable travel case. I'm keeping the box for now but looking for something just the right size. Note that it does not need external power to work but uses your computer's power source. There is a connection on the back of the monitor for a DC-5V power cord to plug in, but none is provided.
Summary: Have used it only for the 2nd day, but think I can share my experience. I use it with a Lenovo X220T if that matters. When the monitor first gets detected by the computer (or after reboot, wake up after the screen has been shut off or any time the monitor is switching from off to on), it needs 2 USB ports. If only uses 1 USB, the monitor will go on and off. After it has started showing the screen, I can unplug the USB cable that supplies additional power, i.e.
Summary: Love the monitor but the USB Cable failed. Thankfully I just happened to have an extra higher quality cable from a hard drive. This is the second monitor that I had to get as the first one got the dreaded loose USB connection in the back of the monitor. The replacement monitor has been used for about 3 months trouble free. It is great for trade shows and client meetings.
Summary: I purchased this item about a month ago for its portability, flexibility, low power consumption, novelty of reducing cable clutter, and the desire for more and more desktop landscape. Below is my experience thus far, I'll start with the good... Good: -Worked out of the box as expected. -Easy to assemble -Very light weight and thin. -Portable enough to easily move around your house, although not to carry with you as a mobile monitor.
Works nicely, make sure your existing res is not higher than 1920x1024!

Summary: I got one of these in an attempt to get more display real estate without getting a higher-end video card. I connected it, it installed the drivers (6.3.4) and then commenced to blinking all the monitors on and off as it was connected and disconnected from USB every few seconds. I even got the most recent version of the displaylink software/drivers : 7.0, and that made no difference.
Summary: Earlier this year, I came across the 16 inch version of AOC USB powered LCD monitor and purchased it. I was a little skeptical about whether it will deliver its promise, but was pleasantly surprised by its performance and ease of use. Then I learned about the 22" version being scheduled to be released in Feb 2012, and decided to return the 16" one and wait for the 22".
