ASUS MB168B+

 

The ASUS MB168B+ USB 3.0 monitor is light and offers a sharp 1080p image for workers on the go.

Sharp 1080p resolution; Lightweight; Strong performance; Mac and USB 2 compatible

Bundled USB cable too short comes loose; Sometimes requires two USB ports

The ASUS MB168B+ is the best portable monitor we've used, offering speedy performance, accurate color and plenty of screen real estate in a lightweight, portable package. Though other monitors such as the $129 AOC e1659fwu are less expensive, the $199...

Asus MB168B+ review

 

USB monitors such as the Asus MB168B+ haven't, up to now, had the best of times. Generally saddled with poor resolutions, and lacking the hardware required to do justice to smooth movies and fast-changing games, they've remained niche products. That's...

The MB168B+ does have some of the limitations of TN panels, but it has virtually none of those associated with USB screens. It keeps the ease of setup, but adds fantastic 1080p support, and hardware that can make a superbly smooth job of HD movies, and...

Hands on: Asus MB168B+ portable monitor

 

Asus is not the first one out with a portable monitor - Toshiba had one two years ago - but the Taiwanese manufacturer's MB168B+ slim screen is surely one of the smartest and most practical. Very light at just 800 grams and conveniently powered by a...

Great portable monitor

 

Full 1080, matches my Asus N56VZ really well. USB 3.0 and super thing and usb powered

The stand case isnt all that great. I just bought a metal iphone stand for five bucks and works great

Works like a champ

 

The unit is excellent ; Super thin and light and has full HD capabilities ; Almost plug and play for me. I connected the monitor and my computer (Windows 8.1) immediately started searching for drivers. It found and installed drivers, automatically...

I only got this earlier today, so I haven't discovered too many cons with the actual operation (if they exist); but there are other cons ; Inconsistent stock and pricing. It was sold out and I had been shopping for this for about a month, before it...

Solid

 

A bit tired of Mac users complaining about compatibility issues with a companies that design for the PC market. It would be like me freaking out that after I bootcamped my MacBook and boot directly to windows on my Mac that I can no longer daisy-chain...

Light ; 1920x1080 [don't even bother with non + version in my opinion ; Nice case included ; Works well in Win8 & Win7

Has been cheaper in the past [picked mine up for $140 ; Doesn't clean itself

Great monitor with Surface Pro 1

 

Another reviewer has commented that the monitor doesn't work without external power with their Surface Pro 2, but I've been using it with a Surface Pro 1 for approximately a year and have had no problems when it's just running on the battery. I'm...

Lightweight. Good color. Works with Surface Pro 1, with or without external power. Now that I've been using it, I can't live without it. A Surface Pro tablet, attachable keyboard, bluetooth mouse, and this USB monitor creates a total on-the-road...

The color isn't quite as good as on a high-resolution laptop, but it's close enough. There is a bit of lag time, which is understandable given the USB 3.0 connection, so it may discourage its use for gaming, but for coding and word processing, it works...

Good Addition

 

My only thoughts would be to add a mini HDMI port, and external power, if needed, to attach more devices. Also, thought this might be a good troubleshooting tool, but the drivers need to be installed, so it cannot be used as a replacement monitor for...

Very Solid. Love the case. Good HD 720p

Advertised as 1080p, but if you look at the details it's 720p. This is not a bad thing. There is a 1080p version for $50 more

Good product

 

A good value. 1920x1080 in a small form factor. Single cable

If you are sensitive to input lag, go with a HDMI interface instead. Even on 3.0, the USB driver lags mouse and keyboard input slightly. I found that it slowed me down enough to not want to use this panel for primary activities, using it more as a...
