This review is from: GeChic On-Lap2501C 15.6” LCD USB-Powered Portable Monitor with HDMI and VGA input
Pros: First of all, the lightness of this monitor is amazing. I think it might just weigh less than a first gen iPad (ok...likely not, but it sure feels like it when you pick it up for the first time). This fact alone certainly makes it attractive as a portable monitor. Add that to the fact that the monitor itself is very thin and you've got quite the winning combo.
Cons: Let's just get this part out of the way quickly... sitting next to a high DPI display of any kind will make this monitor look very poor. Colors are washed out, contrast is not great, resolution can make some things a bit fuzzy and viewing angles are troublesome. Are these issues to the point of not recommending this? I think they're not and I think for the price that the overall display performance of the monitor is about what I'd say is to be expected. I think the best word to describe the graphics on this monitor would be, "acceptable".
Other Thoughts: Look, is this thing going to replace your Cinema Display or other high flying 1080P/4k Monitor? Of course not... But for less than 2 bills you're not going to find a better productivity booster for use in Hotels, Customer temp cubes, at the coffee shop, or other places outside your office where you might actually want to get "real" work done. It's lightweight, has acceptable image quality, and has a nice profile and integrated screen cover for portable multi-monitor bliss. If your needs are leading you to think that you could squeeze such a tech item into your mobile office lifestyle, then I'd say it'd be hard to go wrong with picking one of these up.
