    Has some nice features, but colors are dullI had been looking at portable monitors for a few months. All I saw were a bunch of unknown Chinese brands. Most of them have good reviews, but I didn’t like them for a couple of reasons:1. Most of them have ports on one side, and ports/buttons on the other side. This means that you might have problems if you want to use the monitor in portrait mode, because the ports would be on top, and you wouldn’t be able to access the buttons on the side that’s sitting on the desk.2. A lot of them have a hole in one of the corners that lets you use a pen as a stand. The hole looks really tacky.Now this brand name ViewSonic VG1655 portable monitor has come along, and it solves both of those issues. It has a multi-directional button on the back that you use to access the on-screen menu. And it has a built-in stand (usable in both landscape and portrait modes), so there’s no hole in it. You’re paying about a 40% premium over the unknown Chinese brands though, but you also get a 3 year warranty.It comes with 3 cables (USB-C to USB-C, USB-C to USB-A, mini-HDMI to HDMI), a power adapter, a cover, a microfiber cloth, a quick start guide, and a piece of paper saying it should be used in 1920×1080 mode. I’m using the USB-C to USB-C cable with my laptop, so I don’t need to use the power adapter. The cables are only about 3 feet long, so they might be a bit short if you need to use the power adapter. I like how one end of the cable has a right-angle connector – that could be useful as a space saver in some situations.What I don’t like about this monitor is that the colors are dull compared to my laptop. And this is supposed to be an IPS panel, which is the best type of panel. It’s very obvious when duplicating my laptop screen to the portable monitor – colors look vivid on my laptop, and they look dull on the ViewSonic. It’s not a brightness issue, I have the ViewSonic on maximum brightness (that’s the default anyway). The colors just look dull, and I tried all the different view modes and color adjustments. Green and purple colors seem especially bad – they can look really dark sometimes, and purple sometimes looks like dark blue. (See the photo I attached.)Another thing is the button on the back. The good thing about it is you just need to press one button to access all the menus and change settings. You can push the button in 5 directions – up, down, left, right, and inwards. The bad thing is that ViewSonic designed their menus in an inconsistent manner. For example, on some submenus, you have to push the button in one direction to go back to the parent menu, and on other submenus, you have to push the button in a different direction to go back to the parent menu. Because of that, I found the menu navigation to constantly behave differently than I expected because of the fact that the actions assigned to each direction always changed depending on what submenu I was on.So overall, if you’re just using this monitor as a secondary monitor and you’re not doing any graphics editing on it, then it’ll probably be fine. But for the premium in price and considering it’s a name brand, the dull colors is a bit disappointing. After all, the main thing a monitor should be judged on is its image quality. If vibrant colors are important to you, there are other portable monitors out there that advertise a high gamut for around the same price as this monitor.

    Touchscreen only supported in mirror modeExcellent excellent portable monitor! Viewsonic always making top nudge equipment.Unfortunately the touchscreen at the moment is only supported in mirror mode. And I use my external monitor in extended mode 99% of the time. So, In my case I will trade it for the regular non-touch model. Viewsonic apparently will release an update that will support extended mode. Till then I’ll carry the regular model.

    Bought two, kept this oneI bought this and the Asus MB16ACE because I couldn’t decide which one I should go with. The buttons on the Asus are a bit easier to use than the joystick on the Viewsonic, but I probably just need to get use to it. Screen quality was pretty much on the same for both. The Asus *may* have been a teenie bit more sharp, but I found the Viewsonic a teenie bit brighter. The colors were the same, the blue screen settings were the same. I kept the Viewsonic because I was nit picking over the screen (like I said, the Asus may have been a teenie bit more sharp, but it was really hard to tell), the Viewsonic was a bit brighter. The Viewsonic is more versatile, has speakers, has a stand. The Asus was paper thin, no stand and looked fragile. I’d recommend the Asus over this one only if you wanted a slightly lighter, more fragile, less versatile, tad more expensive portable monitor.

    Nice addition to increase productivity!I have tried various generic brand portable monitors from amazon and returned all of them because of various issues such as speakers not working, or bluish/green tint display issues. Got tired of all that and gave ViewSonic TD1655 Touchscreen portable monitor a shot. So far, I don’t have any issues. Works well with my windows PC and Nintendo Switch. Colors might be a bit dull for some, but overall, this is a quality product and does the job. Touchscreen works flawlessly with Windows and also with Samsung Dex. I have not encountered any lag yet.For those of you who might have missed an important step in setting up the device for the touchscreen to work properly, try setting the monitor first in control panel. Follow these instructions… Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Tablet PC settings -> choose the right monitor from the drop-down menu and press setup (follow on-screen instructions to complete the setup). Good luck! You can also search for instructions on YouTube by ViewSonic.

    Great product but lacks common ports The monitor is perfect for travel as it is very light, fits snugly along with the laptop in the backpack, comes with a magnetic lid to protect the glass screen, has a nice built-in kickstand to set up with any tilt anywhere and looks elegant. Also when you are not traveling, you can use it as one more screen if you are crazy about multiple displays like me. Picture quality and brightness are great for productivity. But all these great features are offset by bulky adapter, cables and lack of commonly used USB and HDMI interfaces. The power adapter is scary big but luckily you can do without it by connecting to the laptop USB port that powers the display. Never heard of a mini HDMI interface until I bought this product. The problem with such uncommon interface is that you have to buy HDMI to mini HDMI adapters. They provide you with such an adapter cable but it is so thick with two cylinders on either end which I don’t know for what reason. They could have provided miracast feature to make this a wireless display. I succeeded in turning this into a wireless display using Microsoft display adapter but required two adapters because of the lack of common interfaces. While USB type C is becoming popular, still traditional USB interface is quite useful. Also, I have seen regular HDMI port in devices smaller than this so I don’t why they had to force a mini HDMI port on us. But I will give them credit for making both the USB C ports providing power output which made using the Microsoft wireless adapter possible

    tragbarer/portabler Monitor für unterwegs, Homeoffice und mehrIch suchte eine Monitor, der zum einen tragbar ist und klein.Meine Entscheidungskriterien:- mindestens 15,6 Zoll damit man auch was sieht, wenn man sein Display doppelt bzw. erweitert- kein Akku aber per Powerbank betreibbar, weil ein interner Akku im Betrieb unter Umständen dauergeladen wird- 2 x USB-C, 2 x USB-C, weil 1 x Laden und 1 x Daten- 1 x HDMI Minimum, um auch mit anderen Geräte oder Adaptern kompatibel zu sein- eigner integrierte Aufsteller, weil stabiler und die Aufsteller aus Schutzhüllen nicht so meins sind- Mac und Windows kompatibel- interne Lautsprecher (hat nicht jeder Monitor)- Touch-Display habe ich nicht unbedingt benötigtWas mache ich damit:- zweiter Monitor fürs Notebook als doppelte Anzeige oder zum Erweitern der Anzeige- als Monitor fürs Smartphone über USB-C- als Monitor für Amazon Fire TV Cube (Lautstärke nicht über Fernbedienung des Cube steuerbar, sondern am Monitor)Da ich bereits schon einmal einen normalen Monitor dieses Herstellers hatte, griff ich zu und wurde nicht enttäuscht. Der Monitor erfüllt alle meine Anforderungen und ist auch schmal genug um in die Notebooktasche zu passen.Der Einschalter ist auf der Rückseite und dient gleichzeitig zur Bedienung des OSD-Menüs. Über dieses Menü können verschiedene Einstellung des Monitors vorgenommen werden.Der Anschluss erfolgt über die beiliegenden Kabel (USB-C zu USB-C, USB-C zu USB-A, Mini-HDMI auf HDMI).Wer ggf. Displayport benötigt, kann dies über einen Display-Port-HDMI-Adapter (nicht im Lieferumfang) realisierenDie Verbindung hat unter Windows 10 sofort funktioniert.Für mich ist es ein angenehmes Arbeiten mit einem Zweitmonitor. So kann ich einfach Daten in Tabellen aufnehmen, indem auf meinem Notebook die Tabelle geöffnet ist und auf dem externen Monitor die Emails mit den Daten.Einziger Kritikpunkt wäre für mich das kurze USB-C-Kabel, bei dem der Hersteller nicht bedacht hat, dass man ggf. die Stromversorgung über das Netzteil benötigt. Das fürht für mich aber nicht zur Abwertung. Ich habe das Kabel einfach gegen ein längeres ersetzt.Für mich erleichtert der tragbare Monitor das Arbeiten, da ich ihn auch zu Hause sehr leicht wegräumen kann.Wenn Ihnen/Dir die Rezension gefallen hat, lasst bitte einen Klick da.

    Waste of MoneyThe device doesn’t work with Mobile as they said.There;s a catch in terms of OS version.If you have iphone forget to use it and if Android version less than 10.Neither it touch works smooth.And the Audio is the poorest Audio I have ever seen.Better to go with HD monitors which has LED display and are of half of the price.The user guide might be written by someone who didn’t think necessary to put usage guidelines and even the online guide is not complete.finally won’ t recommend it to buy if you are developer.As eye strain is there, else its your money.

    Best of the portable monitors – I’ve tried two and this is my favouriteGreat product and really well designed. I use this as a second screen for development work and also as a touch screen for Samsung Dex. It works flawlessly for both.I’ve done a fair bit of research on portable monitors and this ticked all the boxes for me.

    Touch screen does not yet work with Apple M1 Chip and Big SurNice product, feels well built and certainly at a good price point. Getting it to work on a New MAC is a little bit of a pain but if you read the documents online and it appears to be well documented on their support website. The downside though is that some of that software that runs in the background does not work on M1 or Big Sur yet so I am unable to use any of the touch screen functions on a brand new MAC yet it apparently tells you this in the manual that you don’t actually know about until you buy the product.. I raised this with support and had a very speedy response however with no estimation as to when they will fix. I am now debating sending this back and looking at other products or even replacing with non-touch screen variant which was cheaper as not knowing when/if it will ever work is not reassuring, this is a shame as it does feel like a mature product.Their response was this;The vTouch application for Apple Silicon (M1 chip) and the Big Sur operating system is under development, however, we currently do not have an estimation of when it would be available.Our user manual for vTouch for MacOS also informs the customer that it is under development. I am sorry that I do not have more information at this time.

    Good for office work – wouldn’t recommend for entertainment as colours don’t seem that accurateCompared to ASUS Zenscreen touch mb16amtViewsonic is cheaper – around 50-100 GBPs depending whether you’re getting new or usedColours on viewsonic aren’t the best – good enough for office use but wouldn’t recommend for entertainmentTouch screen is “fine” and requires to be connected via type c connection. Like if you’re connecting to laptop, it would need to be through type C and not HDMIASUS has inbuilt battery which means you don’t need it connected to a power source all the time which is the case with Viewsonic. I just don’t like so many wires around my desk. You need 1 for the laptop, 2 to power the screen, 3 to connect to the laptop, and then i have 4 for the mouse…The flap that comes in the box and the built in stand are good value
