AOC recently introduced its portable external monitor designed for Windows. This is perfect because while a laptop is perfect for getting things done on the go, there are certain limitations in comparison with a desktop. One of the most important ones being stuck with one display when you’re away from hom, especially when everyone knows the wonders of a dual-monitor setup the benefits it has for productivity. That’s exactly why being limited to a single monitor can become frustrating.

Fortunately, we have portable external monitors at our disposal these days and you can use a dual system display wherever you want to for more productivity.

AOC’s new USB monitor

AOC’s latest USB monitor offers a 16-inch  display (model number 11659FWUX) which uses USB 3.0 for both video and power. This means you can easily pack it into your backpack or in your laptop bag and there’s no additional bulky power cable you need to carry around.

USB monitor features

The USB monitor is slim and lightweight for maximum portability. According to AOC:

Its small footprint makes it perfect for displaying business presentations or adding a second monitor to your laptop or desktop for increased productivity. The widescreen monitor receives both power and signal via a single USB 3.0 cable for plug-and-play connection. It does not require a dedicated power cord or VGA cable, and comes with a foldable flexi-stand for maximum flexibility.

Its USB 3.0 technology is able to achieve high transfer rates and to deliver high-quality images. The monitor is designed with a black glossy finish and features a 15.6-inch screen, 700:1 contrast ratio, 25ms response time, and a great 1920×1080 Full HD resolution at 60Hz. Its IPS panel renders vivid colors and wide viewing angles. More features include auto pivot, foldable flexi-stand, and low power consumption.

The monitor costs only $149.99 and is already available on Amazon.
