Summary: What a disaster this screen has been. ASUS describes it as portable, however, the case it comes in doesn't protect it at all. On my first time bringing the screen with me the screen cracked. The case needs to be made to protect the screen being that the screen is so thin.
Excerpt: I am so used to having two screens at the office that it is tough when I am working in the hotel. This solves that, slim and light it drops in the carry on. I have some trouble getting it to start up from my Toshiba Kira but it does work and I also use it for client presentations.
Summary: This is a great mobile work monitor. Driver for monitor is ok. I got it work but definitely not plug and play setup. Resolution is good for work and YouTube but not streaming videos. Good bright monitor. I use this monitor with my t430 Lenovo thinkpad .
Summary: Excellent screen for what it is. It eats my laptop's battery alive, though, so be aware that you still need to find a plug when using it abroad. I ended up using two small tablet stands in unison to hold this monitor up instead of the case which worked well but was a bit too bulky for my backpack.
Excerpt: This is a must have item if you travel for work or are a university student. Having two monitors dramatically improves productivity, and this is your solution to the problem when you are on campus at college or travel for work. It works with just the usb cord and NO plugin to a outlet is needed.
Summary: I carry this monitor with me on business travel. I have a 13" laptop for the airplane. When I'm in an office I use this as a second (larger) display. The image is excellent, the device is very light, and it only requires a single USB cable for power and signal.
Summary: Have only had the monitor for a day, so I may update this in a couple weeks. This monitor has been hard to find at all, and for less than $300 has been even more rare. So when I saw it for $260, I jumped on it. Sadly for me, it's down to $234 as of this review.
I don't know of a better option at the moment than this

Summary: For travelers looking for a portable monitor, I don't know of a better option at the moment than this. It's admittedly a collection of 'almost there' features; it can be finicky to set up, it seems to prefer certain USB ports over others (regardless of whether they are USB 2.0 or 3.0), and the stand...
Only USB powered LCD at 1080p - but it's far from perfect
10 March 2015
Summary: It's pretty much the only 1920x1080p USB powered LCD out there. I frequently travel locally during the day for work, and am stuck with a crummy 1366x768 laptop screen issued by my job, so this will have to suffice for a larger Windows desktop space.
