    Before buying this monitor, I spent quite a long while looking at different portable monitors but am very pleased with my choice. It is very light and portable – I sometimes work at home and sometimes in my office, and it’s great for being really easy to bring between the two, even though I walk everywhere. (I would love to take it to a cafe when I work there, too, but I feel like that might be a bit much!) It worked easily and without needing to set anything up as soon as I plugged it in to my Mac, so that was good too. I would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking about it – the screen is nice and clear, too, and it is good to work from.

    Update 11/28/2021: The monitor mysteriously stopped working when my Mac updated to OS Catalina. At first, I thought it was an OS compatibility issue.

    The problem is the USB C cable. The new OS requires a Thunderbolt 3 cable for the monitor to work. I swapped out the cable with a Thunderbolt 3 cable and we’re back in business! I suspect upgrading the USB C cable will resolve the Windows issue too.

    I’ve been using this monitor for the past few days. Initial impression: very happy with this monitor.

    A little background. I’m a software designer working from the road (random AirBNB’s, hotels, public spaces & co-working spaces). My regular work setup consists of a powered standing desk, two 24in external monitors in addition to the 3rd monitor from my 15in MBP. I find that losing the additional monitors significantly lowered my productivity.

    My requirements for a portable monitor were:
    1) Portability. I carry a 20L backpack by Peak Design. My whole workstation setup needed to fit in that pack.
    2) Minimal additional gear. I didn’t want to carry more stuff with me. I already had too much as it.
    3) Seamless performance. The monitor needed to make my user experience better; not detract from it. In the past, I’ve tried using my iPad Pro as a second monitor. Even with a wired connection, it had too much lag.

    1) Portability: It’s very light with a footprint that is slightly larger than my 15in MBP. It fit snugly into the laptop slot of my pack. Barely notice the addition.
    2) Minimal additional gear: The only cable needed for this monitor is a USB-C cable. Power and video flow through this one cable.
    3) Ease of setup: For my MBP, it was plug and play. No dongle. No additional software to install. Super simple.
    4) Excellent design: The cover/stand is ingenious. The cover becomes the stand (one less thing to carry) and attaches to the monitor magnetically producing flexible viewing angle choices.
    5) Performance: No lag. Good picture (I’m comparing it to the retina screen on MBP). The color reproduction is acceptable. I plan to use it as my secondary monitor.

    None yet.

    Final verdict: I would buy again.

    El monitor funciona a base de USB 3 e incluye cable y funda de viaje. El Monitor tiene muy buena calidad de imagen, tiene buen tamaño, es un poco grueso, pero es muy ligero. No hay problema para transportarlo, pero es más grueso que una laptop, y un poco más largo que una laptop de 15 pulgadas de pantalla. La relación de precio calidad es muy bueno. La calidad del plástico es buena, pero no lo dejaría caer de alguna mesa muy alta. En general el producto cumplió con las expectativas, la calidad de imagen valen mucho la pena, y la portabilidad. 100% recomendado.

    I purchased this to use with a Razor Blade 15 laptop. Its primary purpose is for programming and amateur radio control, which for me requires dual monitors. I do game with the laptop on occasion, but did not purchase this monitor for that purpose. It can’t compete with the laptop display by any means, but setup as a dual monitor to increase project productivity and aid in seamless workflow, works for me. Look for something else if you’re going to use it for gaming.

    I would not recommend this monitor if color accuracy is essential. Some colors tend to be a bit dull, and reds seem to be slightly on the orange side. Brightness and contrast are acceptable, but I have only used it indoors so I can’t say how it will do outside exposed to mega-glare. I set the Low-Blue Mode to ‘weak’, which adjusts the grayscale closer to match my laptop display.

    Per specification, it connects to the computer via a USB-C port. The port on the computer must support Display Alternative Mode. I initially installed the provided iMenu utility which allows monitor adjustment from the host computer, but found it to be a bit buggy on my Win 10 laptop. It would hang for unacceptable lengths of time, or completely lockup and/or crash. It also seemed to conflict with the native Windows Display Control Panel. Uninstalling it was no walk in the park either. Using the monitor OSD menu works well enough for me. It’s a one button control feature located on the left side of the monitor. In fact, it’s the only button on the monitor. Odd, but it works.

    Why I like it.
    • Lightweight and portable
    • Full 1080 x 1920 native resolution
    • Decent display for the money
    • One cable connection (no wall-wart or separate power connection needed)
    • Includes a protective cover that functions as an adjustable stand
    • Matches my laptop
