Summary: To start with I will say I ended up returning it and getting an AOC e1659Fwu that I am much happier with. I got this monitor for two purposes. Mainly I wanted it to be a third monitor on my desk, but also to be a second monitor when traveling.
Nice monitor with the exception of the panel/picture quality & humming
8 May 2015
Summary: Functionally the monitor works well. I only had to install the latest drivers from displaylink.com and connecting & setting up was pretty smooth. I only had it for 24 hours, but no real complaints about core functionality.
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.
Summary: Good product but does not work with SP3 (surface 3 pro). Two issues: 1. The SP3 USB3 cannot provide power to run that monitor. You have to use powered USB3 hub in between. 2. The windows 8.1 scaling does not work for USB monitors.
Summary: what a great idea to have a lightweight 16" travel monitor! Now they even flip! Except for one thing, well two things--a., stand does not work and monitor will not stay up; b., drivers can clash with your video card. I have the Lenovo model that I love. Just wish it was bigger.
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.
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...
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.
Summary: Likes: Very lightweight does do 1080 resolution Meh: Brightness is OK Sharpness is not great, actually sort of fuzzy in comparison to my other monitors Dislike: I very much dislike having to use the case to prop up the monitor. I would much prefer that it have some sort of integrated kick stand.

Summary: Go: 1. Nice looking, lightweight design 2. Protective sleeve/stand included 3. Works with Mountain Lion after disc install (MacBooks with no optical drive will have to look online for driver download) -- other reviewers say will work with Mavericks 4. Good pricing No-Go 1.
