    A review for those who program or use spreadsheets constantly.Since the pandemic I’ve had to give my son my office space so that he could do well in school. I’ve used dual screen for ages, but I now work in a mobile capacity on a laptop, floating around the house, and truly missed my dual screens, which are bulky and not portable. I’ve trusted ASUS from my gaming days for quality power supplies, cases, and mobos from over 20 years ago, but no longer play PC game. I bought the ASUS monitor MB168B purely for programming, and it serves my needs extremely well. It is USB 3.0 powered so no need for other dangling cables, and the display is crisp for my needs. The max resolution is only 1366×768 @ 60hz, and it is perfect. I look at static code / programming and tons of project management stuff and compare all day so it truly serves it’s purpose as a display while I code on my primary laptop screen. I haven’t noticed any delay, flickering or odd issues either. I also work under low light so I was able to turn the brightness down to exactly my laptop LCD brightness. The bonus is that this monitor is non reflective (doesn’t have that gloss or sheen on the screen) is extremely light and thin. The monitor is plug and play so if you have a Admin locked Windows 10 PC or laptop (like my unfortunate remote working wife) that you do not have admin rights to, to install drivers you can still use the monitor, but you cannot change the brightness, even from the side of the screen buttons or change the display from horizontal to vertical. I have admin rights, but even without them the monitor worked as expected on Windows 10. It also comes with a manufacturer’s warranty of 3 years, and it was only 129.00 so I ended up getting one for my wife as well. The only caveat I see is that if your clumsy be careful with the monitor as for it can easily slide off to the left or right of the included soft case if you tilt the stand. An easy fix would be just add velcro to the back of the panel. Another caveat is make sure you place the panel in the included case all the way down into the 2″ cloth sides inside the folding slim case. If you don’t I can easily see the monitor sliding out of one of the sides and it is smooth. Both my my screens were also made in China (what isn’t these days) and in October 2020 if that is any help in the deciding factor. So it all boils down to this; either keep ALT-TABing to keep switching between panes or “Microsoft Key” + “Arrow key” left or right and share a laptop screen between two panes and keep painfully scrolling left and right inside the panes, or get this ASUS LCD MB168B and start banging out code , Visio and Gantt charts quicker so more time with the family and other obligations. Yes you will shave the work hours down and productivity goes up leaving you with more time for other tasks. Hope that helps.

    ReviewIt works well as a portable monitor.

    Great buyMy husband and I use this for working. I recommend that you purchase. Easy install as all you have to do is plug into the computer and it automatically begins to work as an extension. Great for productivity and those who are mobile and work in different spaces daily.

  4. Alli

    Great for travel and for the priceExactly what I needed for working while traveling! It is super lightweight. The screen quality is not the best but is just fine for working, browsing the web and watching videos that you don’t need hi-def resolution to enjoy and are not too picky. I like that it does not need it’s own power cord and once you download the driver it is very easy to connect and use. It comes with a pouch that you can carry it in and prop the monitor up with. It is not the sturdiest way of holding it up but it has never fallen when in the landscape position, I don’t think it would support it in the portrait display. You can attach a tripod if you want. I did not get it to auto switch the portrait and landscape mode but that does not really matter to me. Overall I would recommend it.

    Excellent for travelingI use this for my M1 Mac and it works without any configuration. Just plug and play. No software or drivers needed. It has abilities to dim, use night mode (less blue light), adjust refresh rate and so on. It’s super light weight. The stand is also a cover which is very convenient and works well.

    Realmente portatilPerfecto para lo que necesito de una pantalla adicional para trabajar en la oficina, portátil para llevarla donde quiera, liviana, resistente, buenos materiales, luminosidad adecuada y regulable, y sobre todo funciona con un solo cable desde la laptop, sea esta desde un puerto USB C o USB A. Lo he instalado en dos equipos, uno más antiguo que el otro, y en ambas a funcionado con distintos conectores. Viene con el adaptador USB A – USB C. Muy sencillo y fácil de colocar y empezar a trabajar.

    Amazing Portability, but viewing angle is tight.Picked this up for the work laptop- and really liked the portrait setup for reading and reviewing documents. In portrait mode, however the viewing angle is a little tight- if your eyes aren’t lined up just right the darker areas occlude, or the backlight bleeds through playing tricks with your eyes and sometimes making fairly things hard to read. StillWorth it for the fact I’m not squinting anymore and spending half my day wondering if that’s a 6, an 8, a 9, or am I just finally going blind.

    Buen producto pero el soporte es regular y normalmente se desliza la pantallaEs un buen producto pero no me gusta que se desliza la pantalla con facilidad

    Works great on M1 Pro MacBook Pro!Was plug and play on macOS. Did have to manually choose 1080p because it automatically made it really low resolution. Color was also very warm and saturated by default, and I chose a different preset that was more natural. Nice that it’s made of metal and sturdy and I like that it’s smaller than most of the 15” monitors you see. Tried the Viewsonic 15.6” and it was so plasticky and I need something sturdy for traveling with internationally.
