Review:The Asus MB 169N+ was pretty good for the first 10 months. It was quite light and thin and suited my needs of a portable monitor reasonably well. It had issues every once and awhile where I would have to unplug and plug the monitor in again to get stuff to display to it. On the first 10 months I'd rate it a 4. However, at that point it quit working. I could tell it was getting power as the power light was on. I thought maybe it was a driver issue and reinstalled the driver on a couple different machines with no luck. Finally I sent sent the monitor back to Asus for warranty repair given it has a three year warranty. They indicated the screen had scratches and sent a few photos which didn't really show much in the way of scratches to me. I thought maybe the screen was scratched during shipping as it didn't have scratches when I sent it. In any case, what the photos showed looked to be trivial at best so I said leave the screen as is and just fix that it doesn't display. Their response was they would only fix it as a whole, to the tune of around $175. For that much I could pretty much by a new one. After a few email exchanges they sent the product back without being repaired. At which point I found it didn't even have any scratches on the screen. This was my first and last purchase of any Asus product. No matter how good your product is, if you don't stand behind it then I'm not going to buy it. Having a three year warranty and then making up excuses not to honor it seems borderline fraudulent. Read more

Review:This is an absolutely fantastic, slim, portable display. I'm an app developer and it slips in my bag with ease. Before I plugged it into my MacBook, I downloaded and installed the driver from the Asus website. However, the screen was extremely laggy. Just moving the mouse around the screen was a glitchy nightmare. I read all of the reviews and couldn't find anyone experiencing the same thing. I began to think it was my computer, but everything was up-to-spec. After about an hour of Googling, I came across the DisplayLink driver page. Just so everyone is clear, Asus makes the hardware, but it's using DisplayLink as a driver. The one on the Asus site is either outdated or incomplete. I downloaded and installed the driver directly from the DisplayLink website. Amazon won't let me post the link, but just do a quick google search for DisplayLink Mac driver and you'll be all set! All of the lag is gone! The display runs perfectly. I love this thing. I'm probably going to get another soon. Very glad I found this. I hope the driver tip helps someone else! Read more

Review:Exactly what I was looking for. I'm a software developer, and work both on and off-site. When working in the office or at home I have a dual-monitor setup to complement my work-supplied laptop. But when I'm really on the road, or working in conference rooms or team coding sessions, I really began to feel constrained by the single monitor. It's just nice to be able to spread code out across several screens while working on interconnected code. Or to be able to have API documentation open on one screen while vim is going on the other. So I began to seek a solution that would provide me with dual-monitor luxury even while away from the traditional desk. My requirements were: * Must work with Ubuntu (Linux). * Must not require an external power source. * Should require only a single cable. * Must be close to the same screen dimensions as my laptop (15.6") * Must be close to the same resolution as my laptop (1920x1080) * Must be lightweight. * Must fit into my laptop bag and backpack alongside my laptop. This unit fit all of those needs perfectly. There are several caveats that if understood ahead of time will help potential buyers make a good decision. First, it's designed for Windows 7 or newer, or Mac OS-X. But it also works with Ubuntu by downloading the DisplayLink driver from the DisplayLink website. Some Ubuntu systems (particularly those built on 14.04LTS) will require a kernel update too. And under Ubuntu the auto-rotate capability is not functional. In fact, with current drivers, it only works in landscape mode. I haven't tried overriding the basic settings with xrandr or xrotate. It's possible that a little more experimentation would enable portrait mode, which may come in handy for coders who like to do horizontal splits. This is a USB 3 device. I tried it with USB 2 as well, but that required being connected through a powered hub. Similarly, even though my other monitors have USB 3 ports in them, they don't supply enough power on their own to power this unit. But driven directly by USB 3 ports on my laptop (AC or battery powered), or the docking station, it works great. If your USB 3 ports aren't capable of supplying sufficient power, though, you may need a powered hub. The color is good, though not identical to my laptop. I haven't investigated calibration options because it's close enough, and good enough for what I need. The brightness setting works as designed, and the screen is plenty bright. My laptop's color doesn't match my full size monitors either (dual 27" Dell's at work, and dual 24" Asus's at home), and that really doesn't bother me. The screen is crisp and sharp. And it renders 1920x1080 just as I had hoped. I expected to see some lag, but I don't detect any. The mouse moves across the screen smoothly. The carrying case that comes with it is perfect for carrying the monitor and for protecting it. And reasonably good for serving the second purpose of monitor stand. But I ordered a tablet stand to use instead, and like that better. The monitor's build quality is nice. it is slender, light, pretty, and sufficiently robust. It doesn't have a "cheap-o" feel. Recently I plugged the monitor into my laptop at the same time that the laptop was docked, driving my dual 27 inch Dell monitors, and I was almost surprised to discover that it all worked fine. Including the laptop's own screen, I had four monitors going in all, working as a single extended desktop. Combined with Ubuntu's virtual desktops, the space was really liberating. So if you need a 15.6" portable monitor at 1920x1080 to use alongside your laptop, this is great. Be prepared to use USB 3, and to use a compatible operating system. If you prefer dual-monitors, even on the go, this is hard to beat for the price. Read more

Review:This product is working well enough, but I was surprised to find that there have been no driver updates for using it with Windows 10, which has resulted in greatly diminished user-friendliness and functionality. Asus has given very little assistance in troubleshooting this issue - the official Asus EZ-link program simply does not work, and I had to dig to find out how to get the screen working. I sat for hours on different troubleshooting forums to figure out how to download the needed DisplayLink drivers to get the screen working for me. The trouble now is that neither the screen brightness adjustment buttons, nor the 'tablet mode' auto-rotation feature, work with the drivers as they are on Windows 10. I am frustrated that this product is advertised with these features, when they are not usable on THE major PC operating system, Windows 10 (which has already been out for 2 years!) Installation was a huge hassle and I have to control the screen brightness with 3rd party software to make it view-able. I am quite surprised that the advertising remains as it is, when there is a 2 year history of problems in functionality. Asus has cornered the market, especially in the UK, when it comes to Portable Monitors, but it seems that being the only option has lead to comfort with major pitfalls. I feel that I was overcharged for inferior product. My screen turns on and transmits an image, but I paid for more than that. Read more

Review:As I often work away from home and often on client site, I miss the benefit of working from home where I have three monitor setup. I therefore decided to buy a lightweight portable monitor that I could carry around between sites quite easily, adding minimum weight to my already packed rucksack. This monitor was discounted as a warehouse deal and at the price it was ideal. The screen is larger than my laptop’s but the resolution is exactly the same. Although a higher resolution would have been better for my needs I couldn’t face paying 60% more in price. The monitor normally comes with a standard usb male-B cable, driver disc and protective cover. The monitor is actually quite light and weighs in at a feather-like 800g. The screen connects very easily and my Windows laptop detected and loaded the drivers without needing the CD. PROS - lightweight design - no flickering or shadowing - decent resolution - comes with 3year warranty - sturdy case supplied with monitor - great price - easy to connect and extend desktop - large size screen CONS - resolution could have been better - requires USB male-B cable to connect (missing from box) - feels a bit flimsy - can be difficult to get screen into protective case Overall this portable monitor works brilliantly and being so light is easy to carry around. Highly recommended. *** Please could you click Yes if my review has helped you in any way *** Read more

Review:I read a ton of reviews like the one I'm now writing before buying this thing... I didn't listen to them, but hopefully I can save somebody from wasting their money on this. It may be a decent screen for PC users, however it's useless on a MacBook. The drivers are all messed up. When you do finally get it working (after hours of un-installing and re-installing drivers), it won't function properly as a 2nd screen inside of the "System preferences" - "Displays" section. Because it uses "Display Link" which is VERY limited. Because of this it also loses out on certain functions that iMovie, Abelton, Garageband, etc... have for additional monitors. You only have 3 size options for the 2nd screen as well: Small, Medium (which cuts the sides off) and Large (which looks ridiculous and cuts even more of screen off) (1920 x 1080, 1280 x 1024 & 1024 x 768) . I also read tons of the reviews saying the brightness was an issue (It's not adjustable at all). I disregarded this when I made my purchase, thinking it wouldn't matter to me... it matters, it matters a lot. The writing on the Asus screen is already really small, with the difference in brightness from my Macbook Screen, it makes it unbearable to look at. I had really high hopes for this screen... It was a cool idea, it just failed too hard. I hope I was able to save you some money. Read more

Review:The monitors viewing angles are pathetic. You will not able to see clearly if you are seeing this in an angle. Though the only use for this would be productivity while traveling if you need 2 screens. Cost is too high. Definitely not value for money. In fact, India needs to just fine companies like ASUS who sell the latest monitors 1080p in US markets and then dump old versions of the product to the Indian market. Asus should have the decency to provide the latest product as they charge a premium from us ( even without taxes). The distributors of these products and the company need to be blamed for promoting this. Read more

Review:The basis concept of this portable screen is brilliant. With the couple of weeks I was able to use it after purchase, it made remote working much more productive. Unfortunately the screen is now smashed and unusable :-( This was because of an accident on my part, but I think the case that converts into a stand is a weak-point of the product and buyers should beware. The case is essentially only a 'prop' - there is nothing fixed to or retaining the screen. When plugging the screen into my PC I caught the top corner with my cuff and it fell forward easily, pivoting over the tab at the base and continuing to fall forward onto my slim-keyboard. This was enough to smash the screen. DETAILS: The screen is not secured in any fixed way. SEE PICS: Its back edge just leans back, at an angle which is only about 12 degree off vertical, onto the folded case which provides a 45mm high support along the full length of its bottom edge (in total, about 365mm). At the front edge, there is a small retaining tab made of stiff, flip up case material which is located in the middle; it's only about 5mm high and 50mm long only. The combination of 'upright' lean back angle, lack of retainer and pivot point at the front bottom edge made what is likely to be a typical 'accidental contact' quickly turn into disaster. I contacted ASUS support as recommended by Amazon support. I explained exactly what happened, and noted my concerns about the stand and asked if they could offer any form of customer support. ASUS replied “Please note that we do not repair the monitors, the warranty is a replacement warranty only. Asus is the manufacture and cannot be seen as a seller, we do not sell our products directly to customers. I am sorry to let you know that we cannot repair the monitor, and we cannot replace the monitor for another one at a reduced price. Our apologies for the inconveniences caused to you.” So no real help available anywhere. If you do decide to buy this screen I'd think about buying the insurance Amazon offer and I'd caution against using the case as a stand and get something more secure. For the replacement screen I purchased I also bought this Anker Portable Stand, which seems very solid and you could add velcro tape if you want to make it even more secure: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00N2EOK8O/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 . All in all a bit of disappointing learning curve and expensive experience. Read more
