Excerpt: Dual monitors has become essential in my work. Now I can take the Asus 168 on the road with my laptop for great productivity.One USB connection for both power and signal is Great! Image rotates with monitor.Color rendition is a little off but doesn't affect documents. The Asus registration process is horrible.
Summary: Works wonderfully! I am using it with a 6-year old MacBook. There are a few glitches, as expected after reading some reviews, but I spume that is because I am using a USB 2.0 port. I expect more brightness (although this one is pretty good) and far to none glitches with my next MacBook with 3.0 ports. Although this screen is supposed to work better with Windows PCs, the video drives for my mac on my Windows 7 partition (using bootcamp) are not compatible.
Summary: The screen works great as a second monitor for the laptop I use for work. Being an IT Consultant it is nice to have a thin monitor I can pack in the laptop bag. The monitor's protective sleeve functions as the base and works well. The Dell and Lenovo laptop I have was able to power the monitor with their USB 2 ports, the only difference I noticed was the video on the USB 2 port had a higher latency, whereas the USB3 port provided a fairly low latency.
Excerpt: This monitor is excellent for anybody that needs extra screen space on the go. I've been using it for about 6 months now (after a Philip Bloom reccomendation), and it's been very helpful in my post workflow. Once you install the DisplayLink drivers it's plug and play. I need more USB ports on my rMBP.Unfortunately it does come with some cons. As a Mac user, you're unable to control landscape/portrait orientation, brightness, and have a very limited color spaces.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Full 1080, Inexpensive, Lightweight Portable, Usb Powered
Cons: Inaccurate Color, Less Mac Functionality, Slightly Flimsy
Summary: its amazing but... mac support sucks! 1. works fine with mac but controllers on the side don't work 2. when mirroring the display it doesn't go full screen just small screen inside 3. I wish it had more use other than just mirroring or extending maybe support for ipad or hdmi! 4. bugs the hell out of me that everyone is trying to touch it thinking its a touch screen! HANDS OFF SUCKERS! lol 5.
Summary: While the monitor might work fine for Windows users, it doesn't work for Mac users, despite the fact that all indications from the product is that Mac OS is supported. The Yosemite driver got it to work partially, but there is no brightness control without the Windows-only EzLink software. The Brightness buttons on the device don't work unless you have that software, to either turn off AI Light functionality, or control the unit from directly with EzLink.
Another great use is in doing customer presentations

Summary: I use this monitor on the road. With 2 USB monitors I can travel light but develop with a 3 1080p monitors on my ultra-book wherever I go. Another great use is in doing customer presentations. I mirror an external monitor that I can keep at lower resolution to match the projector and still take notes in my high resolution laptop screen. That also hides all the email and other notifications that are coming in. I would not go out without one of these.
Summary: Monitor worked well when I first bought it. Light weight, extremely portable, perfect for my all nighters (I'm a student). I did recommend it to everyone else I know but now ive stopped because the monitor stopped working. It connects to the computer fine and taking a screenshot shows that the computer is properly pushing the screen image. Just nothing shows up on the screen but a blank black/blue screen.
Summary: I can't live without two screens in my office and always suffered when traveling. When this product became available, I bought one. The monitor is very bright and the text sharp, as you might expect. I very much dislike the 1920x1080 format as this does not work well for documents in portrait mode. 4:3 aspect monitors are far better for standard size documents. Other than that, this monitor is fine. I concur with other reviewers who say to get a different stand.
Beautifully made but needs more power than advertised

Summary: It needs more power than product description would have you believe, needs special drivers, which are difficult to obtain. I haven't gotten it to work with Surface Pro 2 even after drivers were successfully installed. But there is some good news: It's cosmetically beautiful. Assembled with precision using high quality components. Light. Thin. Strong. All as advertised. The display is rich, sharp and with good angle of view.
