Don't let the USB cord fool you--if your computer has USB 2.0 ports, then you only need to use the data cord, not the second integrated power cord. This is great for netbook use if, like me, your number of USB slots is limited.
Setup was simple on my work computer (Vista), a little more challenging on my netbook (XP). For those without an optical drive, the drivers are easily accessible online, and a simple reboot took care of my connection issues on the netbook. The work computer managed it all without a blink.
This is not a large monitor, and it doesn't pretend to be. The resolution is good enough for YouTube, and doesn't take up that much processor to run, even on my netbook. It is good for your ancillary applications that you don't want to have to ALT+Tab to check on, or to have video or something else you're monitoring while you work on the main screen.
Here's a tip - drag over windows for tools like iChat, Skype, propane, etc... and once your windows are over there, right-click on the application in your dock, choose 'options' in the popup menu and then choose 'assign to all desktops'. Then, as you navigate your main monitor from desktop to desktop with mission control, your chat windows will stay anchored in this side window.
Now referring to the title of this review, currently after upgrading to Windows 8.1, the screen doesn't behave as expected. It only displays a black screen and if you click on it, it shows the Start menu. Right now, with other users, this issue is being discussed and investigated by the developers of the Displaylink software. Until a solution is found, I would not recommend it to any Windows 8.1 users. When the issue is solved, I will update this review.
UPDATE 1(Nov 11, 2013): So far in Windows 8.1 the problem still persists, if you use the monitor in portrait mode. It will work as long as it is on landscape orientation. If you see the start menu screen, just click on desktop and it will be fixed. The issues still persists while using in portrait orientation.
UPDATE 2 (May 14, 2014): Using the latest drivers, still the problem persists. Monitor behaves weirdly while in portrait mode as previously mentioned. In landscape mode, it works correctly and is the way I have been using it for the last few months.
Great extra real estate for netbook
Great contract and brightness
Windows 7 driver installation a pain even with the latest driver available online
Screen occasionally becomes unresponsive and requires pulling the USB and plugging it back in
Screen will occasionally lag
Angle of display is only slightly adjustable in landscape mode
Angle of display in portrait mode is not adjustable
Angle of display in portrait mode is so far back, it only makes sense if screen is positioned well below eye level

While it's far more expensive than you'd expect, this monitor is exactly what I needed. It's portability is fantastic, and I didn't run into any issues installing drivers either.Published 18 months ago by Alex
I use it as an emergency monitor for when I am working on client headless devices. Windows usually discovers it and installs the driver autmoatically.Published 18 months ago by MattyD
