Does what it's supposed to
, November 28, 2011
This review is from: AOC E1649FWU 16" USB-Powered Portable LED Monitor - Glossy Black (Personal Computers)
My business is retouching and post-production. So wherever I go I have to carry a mobile workstation with me in case my clients call and see they need something unplanned in a hurry. When you are used to working with 3 or 4 displays at the office, it's irritating to be limited to one. This guy has been great so far. I use it for my tools and panels when in Photoshop. It's also great to use on a daily basis with my laptop for my orders screen or email. I also like that it auto rotates to portrait. This is great for some of my long excel sheets or when I'm writing code. Even if I decide to do paperwork downstairs in front of my TV, it's great that I can take this and my laptop and get some work done outside the confines of my office.
USB only (no extra power adapter)
bright (from what I've read the Lenovo portable and toshiba are not bright at all)
landscape or portrait
Uncontrollable brightness. For my eyes this is too bright, especially since I work in a very dim room 90% of the time. I contacted AOC and they confirmed that you cannot control the brightness
Not great for viewing video or images on.
The odd ration bugs me. 1366x768. Windows minimum recommendation is 1280x960. I don't understand why all three of the portable displays out right now have this super skinny dimension.
No case (i just went and got a laptop sleeve that fits though)
