New Purchase: A USB Second Monitor

January 28, 2014

I recently purchased the AOC E1649FWU, a 16″ USB powered portable second monitor for less than $90. I bought it with the idea of taking it on vacation so that when I have work to do with the laptop I bring along, I will have the use of a second monitor.

I have every intention of using it that way, but right now it has found a home as a second monitor for our family room PC. It works surprisingly well as a second monitor that can be brought out for occasions when doing substantive work on that PC and put away (so as not to clutter the desk at other times).

The monitor fits into an old 17″ laptop bag along with our new ultrabook and is powered by USB, so no need for a heavy power supply.
