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: 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.
Very great compact and usable monitor. A must have for students.

Summary: I really love this Monitor. I find it essential when in school and doing homework. Being under two pounds and compact makes it so you don't even know it is in your bag. The added feature of being powered through the USB port is also nice. No clutter from an extra power cable. Five stars all the way.
Summary: This is a great monitor. It is light weight and easy to travel with and runs on USB power. The picture is just as good as on my Lenovo thinkpad. (Just as bright as well) for this price, there is no question, I definitely recommend this monitor.
Great travel monitor, just wish it were a bit larger.

Summary: Great travel monitor, just wish it were a bit larger. Fast, easy set-up. only one cord...the USB. Clear screen. Works great. Used it on a recent business trip. I couldn't live whithout a 2nd monitor!
Summary: First the warning to Mac users: you need to install 3rd party software to make it work. I'd seen that in other reviews but the links were deleted. The software from DisplayLink is easy to install. There is not a link from the Lenovo website and I was suspicious but it seems to work fine. The monitor is just what I wanted: light, no additional power supply required, easy to use and it looks fine (though not as good as the Mac's own). Low cost, as well.
Summary: I got this monitor bc I don't have space for a permanent monitor and my high end Lenovo tablet laptop has only a stingy 720p resolution, which is lousy for todays standards considering many tablets are already offering HD resolutions on smaller screens. Anyway, this monitor fills the void and stores away easily when not needed (which is most of the times).
Summary: I looked at several other solutions, and decided to go with the Lenovo. I have been using it for about 6 weeks and it is performing beautifully. It works with my desktop and laptop. I've had no technical issues whatsoever. I travel for work, and I love that it is so thin and light. When they make a 16 inch model I will be first in line to buy it.
Summary: Great addition to use with my laptop while traveling and with clients. Highly recommend. Fits in laptop bag well. Didn't need the software just plugged in and let windows do it's magic for drivers.
