Summary: I just received mine in the mail. It has a manufacturing date of April, 2014. Most reviews mention a short cable, one specifically mentioned 27". The cable that came with mine is about 40" tip to tip, and it hasn't fallen out... in the first 5 minutes. When turned on to full brightness with only white on the screen it uses 1.20 amps of power. With the brightness all the way down and a black screen it uses .80 amps of power. I'm using a 6 month old Asus ROG 17" laptop.
Summary: I've owned this monitor since January, and have been using it on a regular basis since then for working from home. I am a software developer, and there are times where I have to jump onto my work computer during the evenings in order to support the system my team develops. This usually involves remote desktop over a VPN, which is already introduces lag in and of itself.
Summary: I'm typing this review using the second monitor that I carry in my laptop bag with my laptop. When I need to go to a customer site, sometimes only having a single screen laptop setup is too restrictive for working with spreadsheets or software development. This monitor doesn't have a webcam which is good thing as it is a restriction at some companies.
Summary: I bought this and it works fine on my newer 2011 macbook pro; it does not work on my older 2007 macbook pro, even though both have the same OS. I tried uninstalling the driver and reinstalling the display link driver on the older macbook pro to no avail. I uninstalled it and downloaded and installed the beta version and that didn't work.
Summary: the technology of this monitor isn't like my IPS screen on my laptop but it's pretty decent. i was surprised to notice that you can smoothly scroll webpages on it. my biggest complaint is that the cable does not securely attach to the monitor. so, if you move it a bit there is a good chance it will disconnect.
Summary: Three months ago I bought this monitor, image quality is good and resolution too, the finish metalic in the back is beautiful and elegant, but the plastic edge in the front is the worst, I use the monitor frecuently and carry it with me, I am careful with it, but nevertheless already has two cracks (fissures), I've never beaten or dropped it.
Summary: Very nice little monitor, great resolution for the size. I use it to to display panels/gauges/MFD's in simulators. The USB cord doesn't seem loose to me, it's just how all micro USB sockets are and there is nothing wrong with this one (at least for the monitor I got). If you have a problem with that I guess you can tape it or glue it with silicone on the outside :p The sharpness and clarity is awesome.
Summary: I'm a freelance website designer and online marketing consultant and spend a LOT of time in clients offices and coffee shops working and this screen is really easy to set up and plug one cord in and the HD resolution matches up with my laptop resolution perfectly so when I move windows back and forth between the screens there is no contrast in the size of things. You notice this especially in internet browsers. Anyways, if you are on the market for one of these...
Summary: I have owned this portable monitor for a few months carrying it in a briefcase to and from classes. During this time the monitor was always inside its case and I was always careful to avoid any unnecessary risk. Unfortunately since it is impossible for things not to move inside a briefcase while walking my screen, though inside its case, broke. With this product being marketed towards portability, I was expecting much more when its came to its durability.
