I purchased the Mimo 710S for two applications. At work, I wanted a third monitor to dedicate to Outlook while my other two monitors were used for applications that require more screen real estate. I also wanted some elbow room for my netbook, to give room for notes or a chat window while I worked on the main screen. The Mimo 710S accomplishes both of these things.

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.

I plugged it in to my late 2009 model 17 inch macbook pro running lion and it worked, no extra drivers needed (although there are some you can download rom their site for OSX, but I'm not sure why you'd need them). This showed up in the monitors control panel just like any second monitor.

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.

I purchased this as a lap top dual screen display hooked to a Telescope taking astronomy pictures. The photo's are viewed here while I do other things with the computer. The low profile fold-up capabilty is unique and perfect for my limited transport and storage needs. The construction is better than I expected and the USB power needs fit my application (AC power is not abundant where I set up telescopes). The picture quality is equivalant to what I get on my lap top and hook up was straight forward on VISTA. The USB cable is not an issue. A dual-port USB came with the monitor but that was too bulky (and long). I replaced it with an old Olympus digital camera single port USB that had the same connector (but much shorter) and it works fine. So far (one month) the UM-71OS has done exactly what I had hoped for. There are no "CON's". The price is well worth the unique features (fold up, USB power, and rotational screen). I would and have recommended it to friends and associates.

This monitor has been great so far. The resolution is good enough and having the stand to use it in landscape o portrait mode is definitively a great feature. I use this monitor to display my customized Rainmeter showing all of my PC stats like temperatures, RAM used, fan speeds, even to show the current time. This monitor works great on Windows 7 and 8.

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.

The product itself is great and a perfect portable addition for those who work a lot on Netbooks or other small computers. Unfortunately, Windows 7 had a hard time installing the driver itself. Plugging in the device kept trying to install an old version of the driver which wouldn't work. I had to uninstall the default driver and install fresh Windows 7 driver. The driver resulted in a blank screen, but after a restart everything worked just fine. Not sure why others haven't reported issues with Windows 7 install, but for me it required many restarts, and trial and error, but it eventually worked.

PROS:
Great extra real estate for netbook
Great contract and brightness

CONS:
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
