    ASUS MB16AC Reviews

    MB16AC 15.6" 16:9 Full HD Portable IPS Monitor is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Laptop Companion Excellent design and build quality. Powered from laptop means 1 cable and no charging brick. Well worth the price. I need more than one screen when I work. I've used an iPad as a second screen. It works but this screen is better with a lot more screen real estate. Case folds and is magnetic. Well conceived and sits at a good angle. I haven't been using the pen for stand just the case. Since getting it in summer I've been able to work outside on terrace instead of in the office. I will certainly also travel with it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Favorably impressed I was favorably impressed with this monitor. When you connect it via the native USB C/Display Port connection, it performs like any other Display Port monitor. Nice refresh rate, clean image. When you connect it via the older USB type A adapter, performance drops a bit, but still quite satisfactory for business use. Overall could be a bit brighter, and the screen is very *very* glossy and a fingerprint magnet. Menu simple to use and easy to navigate. Overall quite happy. Unclear yet just how much drain this will place on battery life, because frankly it is better suite to yoke to a powered laptop in a static location, such as a temporary office or hotel room. Bit of a niche product, but if you need the real estate for business applications, you won't be disappointed. Works well displaying movies, find it a bit too dim for any kind of gaming even if the laptop it is connected to has enough horsepower to support it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Better than advertised... Ok, I was skeptical at first. I have a MBP 2017 and needed a second monitor when I use Logic Pro and Final Cut Pro.The seoncd screen can display plug-ins and the mixer, etc. I have two small studios but didn't want to drop 1,600 for two monitors or buy one and haul between two locations. Considering I don't do Photoshop or visually/color sensitive or critical stuff, this thing is ideal!? A little awkward figuring out how it is suppose to stand up, but you'll figure it out eventually. It's totally Mac plug and play! No power chord-just a Thunderbolt/USB-C and perfect for tight spaces-very samll footprint.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderfully portable Wonderfully portable. I just took it on a business trip and it easily fit in my laptop backpack (along with 2 laptops). Easy on the eyes. I've used it as a second monitor for coding and as part of my photographic workflow with box. For certain applications I like the definition on this monitor better than my Retina displays. It is a nice new tool.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, clean and shiny build quality and very simple to use. I have been looking for something like this. +1 cable that does both power and video and displays 1080P +This is subjective, but I prefer a glossy panel over matte, even if there will be some reflections and glare, but there are people out there like me who enjoy the shine of tech products. +light and convenient for road warriors like me who need a mobile office feel with multiple that can be snapped open with no need of wall sockets. +Great for setting up as a browsing, article source or videos while writing or programming off on the Mackbook. -USB-C is good, but still has its limits as I could not get games from my Alienware to display on the monitor at 1080P, but may need to crank the resolution down - but I am big gamer as well. All in all, I recommend this for it's build, mobility/portability, display, thinness, weight and simple connectivity. Seriously considering getting two more as I am able to stick the monitor to a wall at my desk and it frees up a lot of space, another surprising use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very good choice for sure! I have no issues with it at all. I connected it to my 4k laptop and even with the resolution difference, windows works without issues. The only bad thing is that its USB connector is placed in a way that does not allow me to really align it very tightly with my laptop screen, unless I place it on the left side. Also, if this would have been wireless with about of 8 hours of operation (I know, I want a lot) would be phenomenal!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive and Lightweight but color and contrast are bad. Pros: t's inexpensive, light weight, set up is simple after installing the driver on host computer, and nice cover included. Cons: The color is inaccurate and not the right settings to calibrate so you won't be using this to edit, but as a second monitor for non-color critical stuff it works. It will drain the battery on a laptop quickly. It's a bit of a toss up between this, and using a large iPad as a second display on a Mac.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for on the go This hooked right up with my 2017 15.4" MacBook Pro.? Gives me the extra screen real estate I need when I'm not at my office hooked up to my bigger monitor.
