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.
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.
Good enough for Powerpoint presentations to 1 or 2 people

Summary: I needed a way to make (sales) presentations to 1 or 2 people at a time, typically across a desk or a restaurant table. A pocket projector is not useful in those situations because you need a lot of space between the projector and the screen (and you need a small screen to go with it). In net, pocket LED projectors require you to have a conference room for the presentation. When you are not using one, you need a portable monitor like this Lenovo.
Summary: I bought this monitor to display my digital artwork at expos and conventions. I am a little frustrated that the viewing angle is a bit limited, but otherwise that's a minor complaint I have about the product. I would have liked a bit higher of a resolution since I am using it with a Macbook Pro with Retina display, but it's not unusable by any means. There is some flickering issues when videos are displayed in the ThinkVision monitor, but nothing is perfect.
Summary: Monitor has proven to be very resourceful, allowing me to work on multiple projects while barely taking time to re-configure the desktop due to inadequate screen space. The functionality with a MacBook Pro is a little slower but overall, this is a great product that is worth every penny.
Summary: I really like it; only needed one USB for me (it has a wire that allows to go into two ports, I suppose to get more juice). I use a Dell x12 laptop, which is very small, so I'd think only one USB will work for most laptops. My only complaint is lack of control of the pixel sizes; so side by side, this one is not identical to my Dell; but its so much better than any other option I've come across, I still highly recommend.
Very elegant looking companion, even for a Macbook Air
26 April 2013
Summary: Quick background: I am a software developer who likes to work in coffee shops but hate having only one screen. Now on to initial impressions... Let's start off with the way it looks. It's matte black, with hardly any buttons front and back. It's very simple and it looks extremely elegant, even next to a Macbook air. I imagine it looks perfect next to a Lenovo Ideapad.
Summary: good revolution, not as good as the macbook pro but adequate for a second monitor for Imovie and displaying a screen to customers. had to download third party software for it to operate on a Mac. No Mac support whatsoever.
Great for work. Ok for media. Little expensive. Works as advertised
24 October 2012
Summary: Picture: More than enough if you're using it as a work horse. It gets plenty bright. The image is sharp. But if you want this more as a media display then you'll be disappointed. The contrast isn't horrible but it's not amazing either. The viewing angles are going to follow that same general rule. I can read text from near 170-175 degree angles.. but if you're watching video or a movie then you can't be all that far out to the side.
Very handy if you are spoiled by 2 monitor setup at home and would like same for travel

Summary: I have two monitors at home and miss that setup when I am traveling. This Lenovo product works well because it is about as compact and simple a setup as you could imagine. If you could remove the screen from another Lenovo by cutting the hinges and figure out a way to drive it via a USB cable, you'd have this product. The little foot on the back combined with the plastic cover is a clever way to provide a stand without adding to bulk and weight.
