Only requires 1 USB cable to operate keeping the accessories to a minimum in my bad. Small and light enough to tote around with me. Makes Starbucks, my office away from the office, much more palatable with 2 screens :) The resolution could be higher, but at[$] it's a deal. When I'm in the office I use it as a 3rd screen in portrait mode to keep all my messaging apps visible.

I purchased this little monitor as a secondary monitor I could easily fit in my backpack and take with me to and from school. We use programs like Photoshop, 3dsMax, and Mudbox on a daily basis. Having a second monitor for reference photos and toolbars is very convenient. However I would not recommend this particular monitor at all. I have a beast of an Alienware machine, and this little monitor issued problem after problem, resulting in me having to ultimately replace my hard-drive. The drivers are outdated, with no support really offered. I received my monitor in the mail on my lunch break, installed the display drivers, took it back to school with me, and my 3dsMax crashed. Then Photoshop. Then a number of other components until finally Windows itself. After I got my machine back up and running, I thought I would try again to see if it actually was the monitor, and lo-and-behold, the thing doesn't work. You cannot open any windows on the monitor itself, it will just perpetually load. If you open a window and drag it over, it will not display correctly. Sometimes it will auto-detect that it is the secondary monitor, sometimes it will make itself my desktop. While working on a project it will randomly re-orient itself from horizontal to vertical. It has reached the point where it is no longer convenient, rather an inconvenience, and I plan on returning it. Two of my classmates got the same monitor, and both of them had to reformat their machines as well. It seems to be the common denominator in our hard-drive issues. If you venture to try this monitor despite my warning, please pay the $[$]for the warranty so you can return it when it breaks.

      Connected to my Dell Latitude and Asus laptops w/o any issues. Nice bright screen, with great detail for working with documents. Light weight but does have some thickness. I use full time at work as an extended desktop. And it packs in my backpack just fine next to my laptop. If not protected I can see how the shiney plastic housing may show scuffs later. Overall very satisfied. Used a longer USB to micro USB that I had from an old camera and it works fine. Rated down from 5 because of the short USB cord and because a simple storage sleeve would have been useful.

      Comments about Aoc E1649FWU 16" Widescreen LED Backlit Portable LCD Monitor:

      I was concerned with some reviews that had a big problem installing, but it was no problem at all. I just followed the directions, which clearly ask you to install the drivers from the CD FIRST, then hook it up and you will be good to go. It's really that simple, and I LOVE the portrait feature, man, it makes editing word docs so much better.

      Some had issue about the placement of the USB cable at the back of the unit. Seems fine to me, I don't see why some think it is misplaced.

      True, you cannot adjust color or brightness (not that I have found) but the quality is definitely fine for my purposes (which includes non-pro photo and video editing).

      Cable on computer end does have two USB plugs, one for power if needed, but I have not needed to use it for my 1.5 year old laptop. I DO have the single USB plugged into a powered D-Link USB multi-port, which also shares a mouse and laptop fan unit, and it all works just fine.

      I did ONCE (so far) have an issue when I disconnected my laptop from an extended traditional HD monitor, switching over to the AOC, and my desktop icons and some open windows got all wacked out: like, the AOC was extended to the right but the icons were placed to a 'ghost' monitor on the left (where the previous HD had been set). It was weird, but I just unplugged everything, shutdown and restarted twice (to be sure), then re-plugged everything and all was well again.

      One last thing, there is a slight issue with having to view the AOC best head on, which might mean you have to prop it up slightly depending on your desk/chair height. I had an old cookbook stand that serves the purpose well. They really should have made the installed prop adjustable, but that's my only issue. For the price, size and convenience, I highly recommend it.

            Sometimes I work from home and I kept getting frustrated because I didnt have dual monitors at at home. I only had my laptop monitor. I told a friend of mine about my frustrations and he told me about this monitor that he just bought so that he would have dual monitors at home. He sent me a link to B&H I read about it and so far it has been great. Great picture and no problems.

                This product is working great for what I use it for. I bought it to attach to my laptop, be portable and be able to read my text books. It works fantastic for that. But when I choose to put a movie on there, either from online or dvd, the quality is horrible. There are also no modifications to the screen itself, due to the way it attaches by USB.

Plenty of attitude on their end. We have never had to return an item purchased at B&H. Could not have been easier. Support person at B&H was helpful and friendly. We'll purchase something else.

                  We've ordered several of these and they have been well received by the staff who travel with this as their second monitor. They no longer have to lug a >7 lb monitor with bulky cables in a separate bag. This fits in their existing laptop bag and at a pound it barely makes a difference. The only cable needed is the included USB cable.

                  The only complaint is the location of the USB port on the device - it could be in a more accessible location.

                  Easy to set up, we don't even use the included CD.

                  I really like this monitor. I have a Macbook and I did need to go to their website and download the latest drivers in order to get the portrait and landscape settings. And even then once you download them you have to go into the your display setting in your system preferences by holding option then clicking on display settings. HOWEVER, other than that, the actual monitor has been great! It's super lightweight and portable. I actually bought a 15" sleeve for it and carry it in my laptop bag with my Macbook. The resolution isn't the highest quality but it is still real clean. But for only $?!? Love it!

                    I'm using this monitor with my home media server. I needed something that would fit on a shelf and was USB powered. Make sure you install the software first.

                      Got got it recently, and I've only used it a few times. So far, I'm very satisfied.

                        The monitor worked straight out the box as a portable monitor. I work a lot in situations where I need to read one document and update another. The portrait mode is great for documents in word and PDFs. Shame it does not auto adjust when you change perspective landscape to portrait. It could also do with a case and the lead is a little tricky to insert. But at the value of $ very well worth it.

                        The display is sharp, bright and easy on the eyes.
                        The included software is relatively easy to install if you're comfortable with doing software installations. however the drivers did not install properly during the initial process and in fact the auto start did not function at all. I had to go in and start the process manually.

                        That said, the documentaton was very poorly written and not really clear on the installation process. Once the drivers were all properly installed (and updated, this process was pretty easy and automatic) the display lit up and the software manages the orientation without a problem.

                        I use this on my Mac (OSX Lion) and once the driver is downloaded and installed it works perfectly. And so light. Even the mobile user can enjoy extended desktop.
                        They don't tell you that it needs TWO USB plugs, and not off the same hub. That was something they should tell people
