Pros: Decent Price, the brightness is high enough to see in daylight, matches my Lenovo T410s at its second from highest brightness level. Easy to carry very light weight. An unexpected auto rotate iPad/iPhone style was nice although when switching from mode to mode blacks out both screens momentarily.
Cons: Screen resolution is decent although I find myself wishing in horizontal mode there was just a little more space. Setting it up is a snap the mini usb plug is in a very awkward spot you have to pinch the cable at a right angle behind the stand arm which can be difficult. The monitor came with no protection, I would have like to have at least seen a rubber snap cover of some sort to protect the screen. I am still using the shipping bag until I can get a case.
Overall Review: I was interested in MIMO monitors for a while but 9" screen was not going to cut it. Then I saw this gem I had to order it, especially for the price. Out of the box impression a little thicker than I had anticipated but not a deal breaker think laptop thick at its thickest. Plastic is shiny that attracts fingerprints and screen also has a high gloss good for contrast bad for sunny locations. The picture is great, although there is no level adjustments available. The leg in the back of the stand takes a good amount of pressure to move makes me nervous that one day it may snap and become loose, just doesn't feel very precise. At the end of the day it fits in my laptop backpack without an issue and I have a second monitor wherever I go which is well worth all the cons especially at that price. I'm going to get a neoprene sleeve to shield it from scratches in the bag. Running with W7 32 Bit Core I5 lenovo T410s. Very happy with it room for improvement but it is a early model.
