Pros:

It is well built, I am not a die hard HP customer but they obviously can produce quality electronics and inks worth their weight in gold. I purchased for the obvious reason, portability and it is all that. The case is sturdy, and seconds as a stand.

Cons:

They point this out up front, the low resolution. Looking at a HD screen for hours a day and then working with this monitor as an extended desktop while using my laptop is a little disappointing and makes the resolution that much more notice able.
I maintain 3 personal laptops, one for work, second as work back-up and personal us while traveling for work, third for portability at home, shop and lake. They get knocked down a position every two years. This was purchased for laptop 2, and worked wonderfully on the Dell 1525 Core Duo. Not long after that a new laptop took over the #1 position and my former workhorse Dell Inspiron N7110 inherited this HP U160. Still fighting it days later. the Inspiron does not like the display drivers at all. In my investigating I found that there are one or more Intel chipsets that are NOT compatible with said drivers. The chipset does not appear to be my issue and my search continues.

Other Thoughts:

Newegg..... this is the very first time you have left me disappointed. Something about the chipset incompatibility should have been listed in large print or at least listed.
For testing purposes the monitor was reunited with it's first mate and still functions properly. I will continue my effort to enable it for use with the i5 gen 2 and post my findings here for no one to ever read.
I purchased from Newegg Flash, will I be marked as a verified owner? lets find out together.
IF your in a pinch and really need portable monitor, you have the compatibility for it and it is on sale, I recommend purchasing it. Disappointment will haunt you otherwise.
I am patiently waiting for the High Def Asus version to make the leap from a nerds dream and onto the store shelf.
