ASUS MB169B+ Overview

The MB169B+ 15.6" Portable LED Backlit IPS USB-Powered Monitor from ASUS is a bus-powered, portable LED 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 a 14 ms response time and a 700:1 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
Compatible with Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, Chrome OS, and Linux

My monitor doesn’t work. I need to get a new one. I’m disappointed and I believe it still falls within the factor warenty. I only used it once and then when I went to use it again it wouldn’t turn on.

Can't get connected through the usb port on a windows 10 64 bit laptop, but works well on a windows 11 laptop.

Good all around, could be brighter.

Good all around, could be brighter. The case is a little tight, but works.

Bright, crisp display, easy to configure. I use mine on my Win 11 computer and my Macbook Air. Windows needs the driver installed, and Mac needs an app called Display Link Manager. Once installed, it's plug and play on Windows, launch the app on Mac. Not crazy about the fold-able case stand, but any tablet stand (available here on B&H) does the trick for just a few bucks. Tablet stand also raises the monitor to roughly the same height as my laptop's monitor, enhancing the aesthetics. Ideal for anyone using a laptop to work at home and want the productivity boost of two monitors. Worth it, get one (or more!) I say one or more because this ASUS does all the graphics processing internally. You can add up to 5 of these without any additional load on your laptop graphics processor. VERY COOL!

Hello, my name is William Andres, and recently I purchased a ASUS MB169B+ monitor, to use with my CZUR Scanner, but soon learned that your monitor will not work past a 15ft cable, even with a compatible 15ft extension cable. While I really am satisfied with the ASUS VivoBook 15 lab top, very disappointed with limitations of your monitors. Thank You.

Excellent for my purpose

I use a Surface Pro and this display allows me to work more comfortably with two documents side by side. Note two caveats: (1) the carrying cover that comes with it is a mediocre stand but this can easily be remedied by buying a couple of phone stands, and (2) FHD is low res relative to a display such as say the Surface Pro and you have to reduce a window's size significantly before dragging it

I would need to use this monitor in "portrait" mode, instead of the way it is shown in the item description. Is that possible when connected to a Windows 10 laptop? I hope to display pdfs of paper docs with the usual orientation that one uses when writing on an 8.5" x 11" sheet.
