Summary: I am a road warrior. I absolutely LOVE this USB-powered screen. It gives me two monitors without the bulk. This screen fits snugly in its case and the case fits in my backpack with minimal additional weight. Working with 2 monitors makes my life on the road so much easier!!! I've had this for several months now and it is holding up well, although I do make sure to store it in the protective bag it was packed in before placing it in the case that doubles as the screen...
Summary: I cannot express how much of a difference this screen has made to my working day. I had been looking at secondary monitors for a while but as someone who travels almost constantly for work I didn't want to get used to having one when working in my office but then have to go back to not having that same functionality when I'm out on the road.
Summary: I travel for work and use this as a second monitor for my laptop. The only downside to this is using the case for the stand, but I bought a $10 ipad stand that actually works great for this monitor and doesn't take up much room in my bag or the desk I'm using. Great display. Just plug it in to a usb port and it gets powered from there. Very portable, thin and light.
I would strongly recommend finding a better resolution monitor

Summary: I would strongly recommend finding a better resolution monitor. The stand it the protection case and is cheap. The connection is horrible. I plan on getting a different model from another company and giving this problem to someone for free.

Summary: It's a dream come true! I've been using 2 small 7" portable monitors (also USB data/powered), but this ASUS is the best on the market - it's 16" screen gives me a full workstation and the nice carrying case protects it in my computer bag. Some similar portables don't have screen protectors (if you can imagine that).
Summary: Got this as a portable second monitor for work. I work in public accounting and travel a lot. This monitor has better resolution and screen quality than my work laptop, is super thin and feels well made. I did purchase the Anker Multi-Angle Stand for Tablets 7-10 inch and it holds this monitor perfectly, even while working from a hotel bed or couch. I would recommend getting a stand because the monitor case included does allow you to adjust the viewing angle.

Summary: Pros: - External USB monitor. It's like magic! - Good size - Gives me decent performance with my Mac Air Cons: - Causes funky behavior with my Mac Air - Noticeable latency - Can't control brightness with OSX (have to connect to a Windows computer) - I don't trust the case-stand 100%.
Summary: This is a must have for any serious professional on the go. As a web developer, this allows me to work anywhere. Great clarity, 1080p resolution looks awesome, can't believe it runs over a single USB cable. My only complaint is that it doesn't always display correctly when resuming from sleep, but I think that's more of a displaylink driver issue than anything wrong with the product itself.
Summary: Pretty close to a perfect product. It is very light and the only drawback is the fussy drivers to get it to work. If you have a Surface Pro 2 you will also need a powered usb cable. It worked fine without power on the Thinkpad Yoga on both ports so I assume it is an issue with the Surface Pro 2 not giving enough power via the lone usb 3.0 port.
Summary: This is fantastic! I spend a little more than half my work time on the road and I missed my second monitor. The resolution is good. If you're doing anything but video, you will not notice the difference between this and a non-USB monitor. Great product at a great price! Possible improvements: Outer pocket on the case to store the cable. there are loops on the inside of the case to thread the cable through, but it's kind of a pain but it does hold the cable in place.
