[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When I work from home, it's challenging to get everything done when I need to shrink all the windows and tabs to fit my laptop monitor. I used to have an additional desktop monitor, but it was so large and heavy and not very portable for using not only at my desk, but from the couch or out on the patio. I started using the ViewSonic display just a couple of weeks ago and I absolutely love it! It's lightweight, glare-free, and easily portable to set up beside me on the couch or out on the patio. It's simple to plug in the two cords from the ViewSonic display to connect it to the laptop. The cords are long enough to give a little flexibility for adjusting your position, but not so long that they get in the way. I only wish my laptop monitor was as good as the ViewSonic display!!

Very happy, so far .

Excellent portable monitor

This portable monitor is a great addition to my traveling setup. It is the size of a laptop screen and fits easily in my backpack along with my other gear. Screen quality is excellent.

Very handy! A better power adaptor would have been nice.

Great monitor. Very portable, and easy to use. My only complaint is the included power adapter, while functional, is a bit bulky and not great for the portable applications you'll be in with this.

I would highly recommend this monitor

Any ideas on how to use this as a wireless viewer from my MacBook Pro? Would love to be able to hand this to a client so they aren't hovering over the laptop while I shoot tethered.
Asked by: Eric
The problem is that most wireless HDMI kits for sending signal wirelessly require a secondary source of power. A second workaround might just be a right angled USB-C connection so the customer can view with some distance.
