Summary: This screen is easy to use, simply "plug and play". Its also fairly light and thin. The construction is good and I don't have to worry about anything breaking. The only downside is that the colour reproduction and vividness isn't great. Therefore, you wouldn't really use it to watch videos or for graphic deign/photography. But for reading notes and viewing powerpoints etc. it is good. I would recommend purchasing this product.
Summary: Very easy to install drivers and get setup. I was able to plug it into two different Lenovo laptops, an E530 and an X1 Carbon. I am able to use the monitor on either laptop with only one of the USB plugs inserted, although it comes with a Y-cable in case you arent drawing enough power with one. You must be viewing the monitor from a relatively head-on position, but this is not a problem for me.
Summary: Super sad that this product really does not last. I treated my like gold and after 4 months it just stopped working. no damage, no cracked screen, just blank for no reason other than a 3 day weekend.
Summary: I purchased this as was happy with. I lost it when my luggage got lost. I bought if for 159.89 in June 2013.. Now it costs over 200 dollars. Wow inflation must be zooming for those CEO's! :) That is too much. But it does work great for what does. Just too pricey now.
Build quality so-so and screen developed serious flaw within three months.

Summary: I was happy with the performance of this screen during the initial few weeks. The case seemed sufficient to protect it when traveling and the screen quality is adequate. But within two months the screen developed two lines of dead pixels near the left side and within three months the cover had cracked pretty badly.
Lenov please take note -- slow refresh problem on usb 2.0
21 January 2014
Summary: just got this beauty today and already played about 4 hours. Everything is beautiful except a latency problem which really bothers me. when I scroll down a app or web page on this monitor, the bottom page becomes fuzzy (fonts all fuzzy), then in less than 2 seconds, it becomes crispy clear again. Also as one of other reviewers mentioned, I am also hearing a hissing sound from back of monitor. Everything else is beautifully made.
Summary: Size and weight wise it was perfect. I used it with my Mac Book Pro Retina. Color is a bit dull, especially when you eyes are tuned to using a retina display. It's a good tool to have as a reference point for low activity apps like placing your tool bars on when using photoshop, or having your emails open etc. I returned it after a few days as the screen started to develop a burn on the edge. I ended up buying a AOC monitor and I'm thoroughly satisfied with that.
Summary: The workmanship of this product is actually quite good but the LCD is not so good. It's fine for someone that uses a top notch quality main monitor for photoshop and wants to put the tools on this monitor to get them out of the way. Would perhaps be OK for CAD tools too. Basically anything that does not require constant viewing. The refresh rate is also extremely poor.
Summary: This thing is awesome. I bought it to use with my surface pro. Picture is bright and clear. I use a regular mini USB rather than the y cable it came with and works fine. Built in kick stand and LCD cover is a nice touch.
