Using this for 2 days, easy to use. But the display quality is not as good as I expected. Feel a bit tired looking at it. Not a perfect solution, but OK for now, just for convenience only.
It can not switch from landscape to portrait. I don't know how, but I don't care much about it.
Good device. Works well. Color could be improved. But can't be beat for the price.
Now that it's half the original cost, it's good value. This is a cheap TN panel monitor that is a bit lacking in brightness and color but as a second screen for a laptop or Surface Pro, it works great! I have an Acer laptop with just an okay 17" TN panel monitor and it looks a bit better than this monitor but having both screens really adds a great deal of function. It comes with a carrying case and the USB cable - no other accessories required! The stand is solid and works well.
I didn't have to install a driver to make this work on Windows 10 - there are some issues with DisplayLink software with Windows 10, especially Win 10 Anniversary Edition. You can find some drivers on the AOC website to make the monitor work, but you can't control brightness, etc...or use the pivot function unless your chipset recognizes the USB monitor and lets you rotate it.
Seeing as how this is a TN panel, the rotation to portrait mode likely wouldn't work very well anyway as the viewing angles are very poor in portrait mode.
So...it might seem like there are more negatives in the review than positives, but I rated it at 4 stars because of the cost - it's good value, just don't set high expectations for video quality and you won't be disappointed. There are better USB monitors but they're double to triple the price. This is the only product in this price range!
I'm totally happy with this monitor. It took a bit to get it working properly. My fault, didn't read instructions first and plugged it into the computer before adding software. Once I fixed that, voila! I can now work wherever I want.
My one word of caution is the cable. It connects in the back and is quite stiff so it pulls on the connection. I've had to replace the cable already and it's only been a week.
We'll see how the next week goes.
Works as advertised except I can't get images to rotate when turning the monitor to portrait angle.
