Compact Good Quality


I had set the monitor to a lower bit depth (16 bit) than my primary display adapter and iTunes found it incompatible (and offered to download a "works with old video" version). Opon setting depth back to the full 32 bit like the primary monitor itunes...

Nicely constructed, good quality thumbscrew holding the stand to the monitor face. Works fine without the secondary power cable on high power ports. No problem setting it up, worked fine with ATI video card. Has a tilt adjustment and stays put....

You can see the color depth difference when next to a 1,000 monitor and video card. The base of the monitor is round, I guess it could have been a tripod (not a problem at all but just takes a little more space than necessary.)

Perfect for certain needs


Requires (i think) 2 USB ports to run. I havent tried it on just 1 yet.

Color is fantastic. The black colors arent really deep but for my application this works perfect. Nice and clear with 5.2 or 5.3 version drivers. High quality metal stand that is easy to position. Perfect for background programs

Price...ouch. Was hoping to spend 50-70 for this project. Windows XP gets a little confused when you set this up as the only monitor

Does exactly what its designed to do


You will need the latest driver from Displaylink (google it) with the driver on the cd I could not even get it to play normal video without lagging a little bit This product works on both my netbook and Laptop perfectly!

With the newest drivers from displaylink's site this think performs GREAT. I can watch videos on it, use my tv tuner to watch tv while useing my laptops main screen for other things! Comes with a nice adjustable stand and cover

Pricey but worth every penny

couldnt be picky on price, installed into my vehicle, took the screen out of its stock case and mounted it where cdplayer used to be, which is hooked up to my mini atx motherboard with amd cpu, mounted up underneath the dash of my vehicle, which is...

Does not work with Crossfire or SLI


I really wanted this little monitor to monitor hardware temps and other information during overclocking. Too bad it blue screens instantly when you hook up while running Crossfire or SLI.

Small size and great picture

Does not work if you are running Crossfire or SLI. This is confirmed in the "Known Issues" section of the troubleshooting guide

Surprisingly nice, just too pricey


I bought this as a curiosity during a sale on another site. Yes, it's actually a nice monitor, but its tiny and you can't run 3d acceleration on it. It only has a USB input, so you can't use it as a little screen for a console system or anything. I use...

Easy to install, works well on XP and Windows 7. Uses a standard mini-USB connection for video and power. Surprisingly sharp and clean image quality, looks as good as my main monitor (which is no slouch). I expected it to be a bit dim...not sure why,...

Too pricey for the size of the monitor. They assume if you're going to tell Windows that this monitor runs to the left or right of your primary screen, that it will be in the bottom corner (that's where the drag-to area registers). turning the monitor...

Decent product.. but pricey & outdated (3.5 stars)


Picked this up to use as a second screen for a Surface Pro -- something to hold the toolbars in applications like photoshop or have an itunes/web browser off to the side. First off - this is an old product that the company continues to sell.. I believe...
