I received the UM-720S promptly after ordering it, and I had no problem connecting it and starting to use it under Windows XP. It's very nice that only a single USB cable is required (as some USB-powered devices need to be plugged into two USB ports to get enough power). The display is crisp and bright, and the driver allows it to be rotated. The touchscreen functionality works reasonably well - it requires a firm press to register consistently, and the tracking is typical for these kind of screens (i.e. it's nowhere near the responsiveness of tracking on an iphone). It's very nice that you can use a stylus instead of your finger. The screen and stand are incredibly thin and compact when folded up. The USB connector comes straight out of the back of the screen, which may be awkward for some applications (like mine), but a right-angle USB connector can be obtained very cheaply. For the price, and for particular applications (such as building a custom controller), this is a very good product, and is currently quite unique. I'm getting close to ordering a second one, which should tell you how much I like it.

UPDATE: I just discovered that OpenGL operations do not work on a DisplayLink device (such as this monitor). So, if you're doing custom development of software to make use of this monitor, you should be sure to NOT use an OpenGL-based library. The DisplayLink drivers may support OpenGL, someday, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

I've had this display for quite a while and I have very mixed feelings about it. On the one hand I really like the display, it has decent resolution and I think it looks very good. I love the clamshell feature since it means I can drop it into my laptop bag without having to worry about the screen getting damaged.

The touch screen is another story. When running under WinXP 32 bit I found that about 1 in 4 boots the touch screen would work. The calibration sofware was next to useless though because, as one other reviewer noted, it scales the calibration screen incorrectly so you have to guess where touch targets 2 - 4 are. I was able to get it mostly calibrated but never quite as well as I'd like just by guessing where the target should be. Even worse, the one target it does show is not in the right location - you have to touch between the target and the corner to calibrate it right.

Then I got a Windows 7 64-bit laptop. Much to my delight the calibration screen scaled correctly and I was able to properly calibrate the screen. Unfortunately over time I've found that the touch screen drivers are unreliable under Windows 7 as well. For a while the touch screen would work about 1 in 4 boots then it quit working entirely but I could get it working again by reinstalling the driver - required every time I rebooted. Now it works after every boot but it will only control the cursor on the main screen, I can't get it to let me assign it to the actual touch screen monitor. That means when I touch the screen it moves the mouse on my primary monitor. I suppose that would be handy for some people but my primary monitor is a multi-touch so it's the last feature I need. The drivers won't let me select anything except the primary monitor either so I can't fix it.

I bought this unit after reading generally favorable reviews, and am not disappointed in the least! I wanted a small touch screen to attach to a new Dell Inspiron DUO which does not have any kind of video output other than its main LCD touch screen. The MIMO drivers loaded onto Windows 7 Home Premium without any problems, and the touch screen software calibrated with no difficulties as well. The system treats the DisplayLink software as an additional monitor in the usual fashion, even though the video adapter in my Dell Duo is not capable of a second monitor. The unit attaches and detaches from Windows 7 simply by inserting/removing the USB plug, and so far has not caused any problems when changing from dual to single monitor.

The MIMO did not impact my battery run time as significantly as I expected because the LED backlight draws very little power, but the screen is surprisingly bright and vibrant, although not sunlight-readable.

The resistive touch screen is not dual-touch capable, and is not as sensitive or responsive as you may be accustomed to compared to your tablet or smart phone, but resistive screens are usually better for using with a stylus than capacitive screens. The MIMO software does not automatically rotate the video when you turn the display from landscape to portrait view because the device is not equipped with sensors to detect orientation, but the driver software makes this easy to do manually from the Windows tool tray.

As other users have stated, the Display Link driver is not capable of using OpenGL, but WebGL ran acceptably in a Google Chrome window, as did Google earth. Videos rendered acceptably, but 720p video did lag or drop frames unless the "Optimize for video" checkbox was selected for the MIMO from the DisplayLink tool tray.

I love my MIMO! I have it connected to a laptop running Windows Vista, and the software installed very easily. (I had an error/hang when I tried to install with both checkboxes marked, but it worked beautifully when I did them one at a time).

As soon as the drivers were installed, it immediately became an extension of my laptop screen with one cord (and one USB port, not two - at least with the version I have, 720S). Calibration was quick and easy. I can choose to have it extend my desktop in whichever direction I choose. Then I grab the handle of a window and move it over to the small screen. I have my tasklist and my twitter feed on it currently. If I turn the screen off, those windows just appear back on my main screen. Likewise, the touchscreen works seamlessly also. Touching a window with the stylus will shift the window focus to that window and acts like a mouse click (so I can check off tasks with my stylus once I focus on that window), and focus will shift back when I click my touchpad on a window on the main screen.

After reading other reviews, I was surprised at how simple to get working this was and how intuitive and handy it is. This "toy" will get a lot of use here.
