The MB168B+ 15.6" HD Portable USB-Powered Monitor from ASUS is a bus-powered, portable WLED backlit monitor designed to be taken with you on the go. Simply connect this versatile monitor to your computer via the integrated USB 3.0 port and begin displaying your content on the HD screen that supports resolutions of up to 1920 x 1080.

Along with the enhanced resolution found on this display, you also benefit from an 11 ms response time and a 600:1 contrast ratio. The enhanced response time helps to reduce lag when viewing videos, while the high contrast ratio creates darker dark and brighter light colors that contribute to a more dynamic picture.

This 15.6" HD portable USB-powered monitor features a single USB 3.0 cable for power and data transmission
The ASUS MB168B+ comes with an auto-rotating display as well as the ASUS Smart Case, which is a two-way adjustable stand and protective sleeve
The MB168B+ features ASUS EzLink technology that offloads graphics processing from the PC to dedicated hardware in the monitor. As a result, a PC or notebook can drive up to five MB168 Series monitors at the same time, regardless of its own graphics capability - it just needs sufficient USB ports

        Comments about ASUS MB168B+ 15.6" HD Portable WLED Backlit TN USB-Powered Monitor:

        As far as I know, this is the only full-HD (1920x1080) portable DisplayLink monitor. It has a beautiful screen. Brightness can be adjusted on the monitor (from what I understand brightness can only be adjusted on a PC, not a Mac). It has a USB 3.0 port and can draw enough power from a single USB 3.0 port on a computer -- it works great on my laptop. It comes with a good protective case that doubles as a stand. It can be used in either portrait or landscape orientation.

            Comments about ASUS MB168B+ 15.6" HD Portable WLED Backlit TN USB-Powered Monitor:

            I bought this monitor to use as a second screen for coding on the road and at home. It is perfect for that; crystal clear and with a good backlight.

            Be aware that this screen does not have the same color depth as a quality desktop or laptop display. It may disappoint in the areas of design, photo editing and gaming.

            The case is great for protecting the unit but does not make the best stand. I am working on a portable stand.

              Comments about ASUS MB168B+ 15.6" HD Portable WLED Backlit TN USB-Powered Monitor:

              This is a great looking and performing monitor. I bought it for a second monitor for my MacBook Pro. It works great but there is no software for the Mac. I had to plug it into my PC to set the brightness. By default it is a little dark and needs the brightness adjusted. The display control panel on the Mac will not adjust anything on this monitor - no brightness or color adjustment. Also, the monitor's external buttons do not work when plugged into the Mac.

              The Mac instantly noticed the display without installing any drivers, though I did install the driver after to see if it made any difference - it did not.
              This is a very lightweight, sleek display. The carry case is also used as the display stand and it works OK.

                  I bought this to replace an HP USB DisplayLink monitor of the same size, except that the HP is not full-HD, i.e. it's only 1366 x 768. The ASUS is wonderful on my HP i7 laptop. The image is sharp and crisp. Amazingly, I can run FOUR monitors under DisplayLink at once (two on USB 3.0 ports and two on a Lenovo USB 3.0 docking station, including gigabit ethernet). Even with all four monitors, the laptop's CPU is not even close to stressed. The monitor comes with a folio-style case that, with a bit of origami, functions as a stand for either portrait or landscape use of the monitor. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

                      I've been using this as a second monitor with my laptop and it has been amazing! It's come in very handy when working on multiple spreadsheets when I'm in the office but away from my docking station, at a customer site or in my hotel room. I've also used it as a presentation screen in meetings when a projector wasn't available. At home, I can play a movie on it in full HD while continuing to work on my main screen. It's a great product and my only suggestion is to make sure you get a dual USB cable because the single USB cable doesn't provide quite enough power for full screen brightness. I'm very happy with it.

                            This is a great screen, easy to set up and portable. No power supply needed and the resolution is excellent. I use this both as a duplicate of my laptop screen (for presentations) as well as a split screen to extend my screen real estate. Be mindful about the resolution difference between the 168B and the 168B+.
