Tools I Use: portable monitor

As a consultant, some clients have limited audio-video equipment. Needing to show a presentation or short video to a group of people can be a challenge with a large monitor.

This is why I needed to find a light, portable monitor at a fair price.

After seeing great reviews, I bought the ASUS MB MB169B+ 15.6″ Screen LED-Lit Monitor.

Be sure you get the +.

The screen works great. Just needs a portable adjustable stand as recommended since the monitor is not free standing. The sleeve which coming with the monitor can support the monitor, but you can not change the angle of the monitor when using this sleeve.

It was very simple to setup and breakdown in under a minute. The sleeve it comes with fits nicely next to my laptop sleeve in my bag. It is very light. I carried a few extra USB cables in case it goes bad, but did not need them (yet).

No batteries needed for the monitor though. I noticed the monitor is only (USB) powered by my laptop, so it does drain my laptop battery MUCH faster than usual. My laptop needs to be plugged in to a wall unless it is in use less than 1 hour with the monitor. Without this monitor plugged in, my laptop lasts 12 hours on one charge.
