Pros: cnet sort of missed the fact of this as being SO SUPER portable and EASY to connect after set up properly. Just toss it and the cable in a bag with your laptop and GO
Cons: Maybe TOO small of a screen for some uses. Also no openGL or certain #D graphics on this - mostly good for simple widgets, twitter, chat type things, work pallets to make more screen space for your main graphic files on the big screen.
"Too much hype for such a nearly useless product."

Pros: Works as a good 3rd monitor for the small sutff. Runs off of a USB hub if you run out of USB ports. Its easy to set up on Windows as you just pop in a cd.
Cons: sucks to set up on a mac takes a little reading to find the correct drivers and then you have to use it with a USB Hub. Doesn't work as a "touch screen" as it is a mouse controller; and a poor one at that. The website is poorly laid out as well.
Summary: ...you are using Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit. Despite the [...] website (and staff) stating that this item is compatible with the above OS, I can't get mine to work. And that's after three hours of trying everything. When I challenged mimomonitors, I was told that they are merely the US distributor and not the manufacturer. Trouble is - it's not possible to speak with the manufacturer. In fact, I haven't been able to establish who the manufacturer is!
Summary: Bought this for work to display system status information. I have a Windows 7 64-bit PC. Took the Mimo out of the box, plugged it in, graphics drivers installed automatically. Am getting the full Windows Aero Glass experience (transparent window borders). Had to go and get the touch screen drivers from the manufacturer's website but they installed fine and touch seems to be working (not that I'm using it for touch). Had it going for over a week now with no issues.
Summary: I've had this for a while but didn't use it much because, as alluded to here and around the NET, the touch part of the installation could be better and it didn't do quite what I'd hoped. However, I tried again and got it together - even writing an application specially for it. Some tips - look out for both icons in the systray - the pointer one doesn't declare itself and is essential in calibrating and setting the screen how you want.
Summary: I've managed to get mine working on various different computers, but it's not been an easy ride; Blue screens, lock ups, driver hunts. Once running, it is an excellent little device and well worth the money. I can understand something like this being a bit awkward to set up, but a BSOD is sloppy driver coding. To be fair, once installed, it seems reliable.
Summary: Well constructed but very light weight and compact with nice folding design ! Driver and Touch screen software installed easily and very low power consumption ! During travel I would use this as a second screen in a hotel as I do at home, mainly for watching videos on the side while working on the laptop and found most embedded browser players working perfectly fine. Image quality is great and no issues at all with connection, sleep and etc.
