Summary: This is a great monitor for the price. It has a sharp screen and is very crisp. I have played movies on it and the refresh rate is good. It does occasionally glitch when when I'm playing something with a higher refresh rate. The monitor itself is sleek and thin and easy to transport. I do wish the usb was longer, but it's something I can live with. Overall I'm very satisfied.
Summary: Well, I just complained that it died, but you have to make sure you have the PRIMARY CORD (the long one) plugged into your USB port (not the short / extra cord). I only wish it got a BIT brighter. There's no brightness control. And yes I know the same things have probably been said in reviews numerous times.
gotta be honest but so far, this thing is terrible

Summary: EDIT... Obviously i had some major issues initially with this product, however I learned that my RAM was bad and that is what was causing the issues with the choppiness. One thing that remains the same is the issues with Mac and Maverick OSX compatibility. I had to downgrade in order to be able to use this item. Screen is smooth and color is great. Compared to my 13inch MacBook Pro this thing is huge.
Summary: We use this monitor for a 2nd screen for our photo booth business. We love the USB Power and display conn all in one. We wish it had brightness and Contrast Controls built in, although the out of box adjustments are close to were we would put them. I do not know of a way to do any adjustment on it by software. We are using as main computer a Dell XPS 18. Uses very little power. 1920x1080 screen is great.
So far so good - Works for MacBook Air & Powerbook, mirroring iPad

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.
