Summary: I had set the monitor to a lower bit depth (16 bit) than my primary display adapter and iTunes found it incompatible (and offered to download a "works with old video" version). Opon setting depth back to the full 32 bit like the primary monitor itunes would play video on it just fine.
Pros: Nicely constructed, good quality thumbscrew holding the stand to the monitor face. Works fine without the secondary power cable on high power ports. No problem setting it up, worked fine with ATI video card. Has a tilt adjustment and stays put. Designed to work without the stand. Really compact, ...
Cons: You can see the color depth difference when next to a 1,000 monitor and video card. The base of the monitor is round, I guess it could have been a tripod (not a problem at all but just takes a little more space than necessary.)
Summary: I purchased mine back in August 2012. Friend needed a replacement screen for his store ATM screen which was damaged. I was able to remove the old 5 inch screen and install this screen, plug it into the USB and it just worked.
plug and play secondary monitor, even a kid can set this up

Summary: Awesome secondary monitor. I use it to watch live tv through comcast.com, hbogo.com, maxgo.com and youtube while in my office working on my primary monitor. Usb powered is an awesome feature. Im looking into the 9 inch model
Summary: Quick Setup with the USB. It took me no longer than 5 minutes to dial it in to my PC. I wanted something small to use with my home security system and this did the trick. Great little monitor.
Summary: Requires (i think) 2 USB ports to run. I havent tried it on just 1 yet.
Pros: Color is fantastic. The black colors arent really deep but for my application this works perfect. Nice and clear with 5.2 or 5.3 version drivers. High quality metal stand that is easy to position. Perfect for background programs.
Cons: Price...ouch. Was hoping to spend 50-70 for this project. Windows XP gets a little confused when you set this up as the only monitor.
Summary: You will need the latest driver from Displaylink (google it) with the driver on the cd I could not even get it to play normal video without lagging a little bit This product works on both my netbook and Laptop perfectly!
Pros: With the newest drivers from displaylink's site this think performs GREAT. I can watch videos on it, use my tv tuner to watch tv while useing my laptops main screen for other things! Comes with a nice adjustable stand and cover
Summary: i am going to use this as a tech station monitor and it will be exactly what i needed
Pros: i wrote a real messed up review and i regret it-- i did not take the time to check this little jewel out----it works great ---after i checked out the specs---i easily got it going-----this is really cool!!!!!
Summary: this is the first thing i will have ever returned to newegg in the 5-7 years i have been a regular customer----its hard to believe stuff like this is being marketed---go to there web sight--- they will tell you this has many issues---better just get a full size monitor for checking thing...
