4.0 out of 5 stars Great but with a few cons, August 30, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: MIMO UM-710S USB Powered 7" Swivel LCD Screen Mini Display (Personal Computers)
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
