Product Description

GET MORE SPACE. DO MORE WITH IT. Studies have shown that using multiple monitors increases productivity by 20-50% - so it's no wonder that millions of people have adopted multiple monitors, and that most find it much harder to function without them. Laptops have given us the power to work from home, coffee shops, airports, hotels, conference rooms, and so on - but there's no way to take your additional monitors with you, right? Well now you can. Introducing the all new CINQ - a lightweight, 10.1" portable LED monitor that connects directly to your laptop with a single, simple USB connection that provides both power and video. You don't need to plug CINQ into the wall - it hooks right up to your laptop or netbook, and after a one-time software driver install, you're off and running with a second (or even third) monitor attached directly to your laptop! CINQ is compatible with laptops or netbooks with an Intel-based processor, which includes any laptop running Windows or Mac. Use CINQ at your desk or on-the-go - it was designed to be super-lightweight, so it works great in both of those roles. In fact, at 14.9 oz, CINQ is light enough to hang off most any laptop lid - and you can even safely hang two CINQs from one 15" laptop. Why? Ergonomic Sight Alignment. We believe in it so much we patented the concept and designs. Having an extra screen (or screens) directly in your sightline and close-proximity peripheral view is key to not having to turn your head all the time. CINQ Display Specs: 1280 x 720 resolution (or 720p HD fixed), 16:9 format, 500:1 contrast ratio, 16ms response time, 30fps. Every CINQ comes with more than just the Monitor itself - you also get the High-Performance USB cable, Adjustable Stand, Plush Hard Cover Case with Pockets, Vinyl Skin + Mount for the back of your laptop, and a Microfiber Cleaning Cloth by Cloth Addiction. CINQ also includes a convenient SD Card Reader in the handle. CINQ is sourced globally but assembled in the USA.

I'm not a road-warrior by any means but I do travel a lot (probably 2 or 3 times a month). The problem is that I'm used to having 3 screens on my desk which you really get used to. So when I travel with just my Mac Book Pro it's really limiting when I want multiple applications open (and visible). I'd heard about the Cinq from a friend and thought "this might be the perfect solution". I mean I could always return it, right? So I bought it. I was a little skeptical at first about attaching anything to the lid of my laptop but it was easy and easily removable. The best part was that the monitor connected super easy. I literally took it out of the case that it comes with (nice, hardshell case that I'm not worried will get crushed in my backpack), plugged in the USB, and blamo, monitor connected (just went into Display Preferences and shifted the arrangement). My only dig is that orange USB. Get rid of that. The resolution is great and the screen is crisp. Of course as a big movie watcher (mostly as background noise while I work), it worked flawlessly with iTunes (which means it's a digital connection that supports HDCP). That was a HUGE plus for me. So I started opening lots of applications and throwing them onto the screen to check the refresh rate (some monitors you drag screens around and they can flicker). No problems whatsoever. To sum up: 1) I got an external monitor I can travel with that attaches to my laptop, 2) it supports iTunes movie playback, 3) it runs purely off USB power, 4) it's about the most plug-and-play device I have ever worked with (right out of the box, plugged in and working), and 5) it has great resolution. I don't really have a con for this other than the ugly orange USB and that's just being nit-picky. It's a rock solid product that anyone needed an extra screen they can travel with should buy immediately.

The Cinq 10.1 worked correctly right when I plugged it in. There was a flicker on the screen which tech support explained means I need to turn up the brightness. I turned up the brightness and it worked perectly. Support emailed me back in less than 4 minutes. I was actually shocked. These screens are small, but work well as an extra skype window, an email window, chat window, and Youtube videos running in the background. Pretty nice.

Love my CINQ!! I work on reports and pull data from multiple areas in our company data base on a daily basis. Having the extra monitor makes working from home or while traveling a breeze. I love that the monitor is light weight, easy to hook up and made in the US! I have recommended CINQ to all my business associates who travel a lot.

I had one small issue after the driver installation and needed to contact the customer service department. They were quick to answer my question and help with my issue.

I was looking for a two- screen setup for my laptop, and this guy, while expensive, was just what I needed. It's very light, made of plastic, and doesn't drain too much battery life while not plugged in. haven't tried the SD card reader on it yet, but it seems like a good addition, allowwing the monitor to both function both with a computer and without, improving the usage-to-cost ratio

For the price, I was expecting a lot more from this portable monitor.

Cons:
- Resolution isn't very sharp
- Screen is kind of like a hazy matte finish
- It's too heavy to attach to my Macbook Air monitor. The hinge connector that attaches to the Cinq monitor should have a click/lock mechanism. Due to the weight, it kept sliding off and fell to the ground when I was adjusting it. I finally had to tape it.
- Swing hinge was also too loose where the monitor kept swinging backwards. I did tighten the hex bolts, but it only helped a little.
- When moving my laptop, I kept getting a message that the usb port didn't have enough power even though my laptop was plugged in.

Pros
- It was easy to install the driver
- Easy to power on and start using
- Orange color is nice
- It came wrapped in paper that had a personalized, handwritten thank you message. I think that alone helped me feel slightly better about all the cons.

Not sure yet if I'm going to return it. Hard to pay $300 for something that has more cons than pros.

I work from home and travel a lot. This product is a perfect for those who are used to working with two screens at the office or at your desk and have screen withdraws on the road or when you are out of the office. I use my CINQ at home and on the road every day. Love it!
