      Great portable monitor for the price

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      This is a great monitor for its price. The only reason I give it a 4 is resolution is not that great, but I dont expect any better than this for this price either. What is so convenient for me with this monitor attached to my Mac -- I open up a Windows virtual machine every now and then on my Mac, and make the windows VM display on this monitor. I also keep a wireless keyboard and mouse in front of the monitor. So, while on Mac, I use the built-in keyboard and touchpad, while on Windows I use the bluetooth keyboard and mouse. This kind of makes me feel that I have two laptops next to each other. I primarily did this, since I hate having to type with my hands on one direction and my eyes looking at another direction, but the setup looks cool overall. I like it, and I would recommend this product to anyone.

      Monitor Failed

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      Bought this monitor about three weeks ago, and it was terrific - for about two and a half weeks, just past the time when I was able to return it. It failed yesterday - gray screen, no image, just a gray light. I took it in to Best Buy today, and they told me there was nothing they could do - I was past their cut off. I'd have to get in touch with the manufacturer. I've reached out to AOC and am waiting to hear back, but very disappointed in Best Buy. Had I purchased extra protection I would have been covered. I didn't think I'd need extra protection just three weeks later - perhaps the product was designed that way.

      Awesome monitor for traveling

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      These days if you don't have multiple monitors you are almost crippled in doing your work. I am in a job that requires me to travel and this monitor works fantastic. It fits easily into carry on luggage and you don't need to take it out for TSA security. When I am at my own desk I already have 2 conventional monitors that push the limits of my video card. I plug this in and because it is USB I get 3!! Easy to hook up, easy to use, I highly recommend this for anyone that needs to travel.

      Excellent for the Price

      Purchased two of these for travel so I have a 3 monitor set up with my laptop. Do exactly what I need them to do. Multiple apps running at the same time on different monitors keeps me from having to min/max. Not the best color resolution but for the cost all good. My Dell Ultra only has (1) 3.0 USB. If I plugged one monitor directly into puter no issues. I had a cheapo 3.0 USB hub and couldn't even run (1) monitor none the less (2) & external hd. Picked up hub with power adapter and with extra juice all worked.

      Great portable monitor!

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      I travel for business and love this monitor. It is light and portable and has good resolution. If you travel with this I highly recommend the additional coverage. I had the screen spider on one trip (I think it was packed to tightly and had pressure on the screen) I brought the monitor back to Best Buy and they shipped one with no questions asked. Since then I cut a piece of cardboard the size of the monitor and put it in front of the screen to prevent this from a happening again.

      AOC Monitor

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      This is a great monitor to use with my macbook pro. I needed to download the driver online which was a little hard to find. But once I found it, it worked great. I've been using it for almost 2 months now. If I had to say anything negative, it would be that I wish I could adjust the brightness. It is not as bright as my macbook display. But overall, I prefer it to the traditional monitors out there.

      Mostly Compatible

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      This functions as advertised but be aware that you have to have administrator privileges to make it work. This monitor auto rotates between landscape and portrait on my home computer and has no lag at all. But on my office computer, it requires software that I cannot load because I do not have administrator privileges. Otherwise, this is a quality portable monitor.

      Great for convenience and mobility.

      I purchased the monitor so that I could work from home. It's very lightweight extremely portable and I love the fact that it does not require a separate AC powered unit. The screen is very clear and large. The downside is, it is also very easy to be damaged. Thankfully, I purchased the extended warranty protection from Best Buy and had no issues after dropping it about two feet. It was a really easy process and I purchased another one! Overall I'm satisfied and would recommend.
