Best companion for my laptops
, December 29, 2011
This review is from: Lenovo ThinkVision LT1421 14" Portable USB LED Monitor (Electronics)
After spending two minutes installing the driver (both on CD and online by searching for "LT1421 driver"), the portable LCD works right after connecting to a USB port. It is amazing that a USB indeed supports an external LCD of very good brightness. With the software, it is easy to change resolutions and arrange it on the left or right sides of the laptop. I settled down with placing it to the right. The text and pictures are very clear. I can see the screen-door effect mentioned by others, but it does not bother me. The tilt angle can be adjusted, so it can be used comfortably on tables of different heights. I've taken it with me on one trip so far and loved it. I left it in my backpack through the airport security check. It makes my text editing job about 15-20% more efficient. Yesterday, I thought about bringing it out of my backpack in a Starbucks LOL. The screen has an anti-reflection coat, which I found very important for portable LCDs.
Change of tilt
The travel cover is not easy to open (it took me 2 minutes to figure out a good way - to open the corner first)
The USB cable is too long (some might need it, but I ended up buying a 1-foot micro-USB cable for $1.99)
Bottomline: the best portable LCD out there, and it is affordable
