Lenovo ThinkVision LT1421

 

Sometimes a laptop screen just doesn't cut it if you're working with spreadsheets or giving a presentation to a small group. Enter the Lenovo ThinkVision LT1421 ($199.99 list), a portable 14-inch monitor driven and powered by your laptop's USB port....

Lightweight. USB powered. Good color and text quality

Weak light grayscale performance. Lacks picture settings

The Lenovo ThinkVision LT1421 portable 14-inch monitor is a great travel companion for users requiring more screen real estate while on the road.

Lenovo ThinkVision LT1421

 

The best portable monitor on the market, the ThinkVision LT1421 offers wide viewing angles, light weight, and great performance over a single USB connection.

Runs on USB power ; Bright screen with wide viewing angles ; Lightest product in its class ; Attractive ThinkPad-inspired design

Bulky cover ; Weaker Mac performance

The ThinkVision LT1421 is a must-have accessory for anyone who wants to maximize productivity when working from the road. With a portable second screen, you can easily compare documents, view research in one screen while creating content in another,...

Lenovo ThinkVision LT1421 14-inch Portable USB Monitor Review

 

Final Thoughts You know you really take multiple displays for granted when you don't have them anymore.  This always happens to me when I travel, and makes adjusting to a single display much harder.  Lenovo really did a great job with the ThinkVision...

– Slim design, – Easy to setup, – No extra power adapter, – USB connection rather than DVI, VGA or HDMI

– Since there is no external power it will drain your laptops battery

Lenovo ThinkVision LT1421 14″ LCD monitor with Plastic Cover Review

 

This post brought to you by Lenovo. All opinions are 100% mine. Is it possible to have a computer monitor that is too large? I think not! More is always better when it comes to screen real estate. But adding a 2nd monitor to your desktop or your laptop...

Very portable ; Great viewing angle ; Connects via USB ; Does not require an AC adapter or power cord

Screen rotation feature wouldn't work with my 27" iMac ; No VESA mount
