Versatile portable external monitor!! 7/1/2020 11:09:59 PM

Pros: Extremely light and thin, easy to connect my MacBook Pro 13 for video editing, then switching to HDMI for console gaming. Magnetic cover to protect screen and supports as a two-adjustable stand. Comes with mini-HDMI to HDMI cable, USB to USB-C cable, and USB-C to USB-C cable.

Cons: Saving presets for output settings would be nice!

Overall Review: Definitely would recommend if you like portable and high-quality. MSI MAG16V1 is the one to take with you without sacrificing storage!

Great Monitor 6/19/2020 6:21:11 PM

Pros: I have used this as a second monitor for my laptop and as a primary for gaming. Works great, easy to set up, and very clear. It is built very well in my opinion and is worth every penny at this price point! MSI did a great job on this.

Cons: My only wish would be to have an option to purchase a hard case for this similar to an Otter Box for an IPad, with a stand. Being in the military I would like to bring it with me an know it’s well protected.

Overall Review: I highly recommend this product for work, gaming, and personal use!!!

Perfect additional screens for a laptop 6/15/2020 8:20:43 AM

Pros: These screens (I bought two) are the perfect additions to my laptop setup for multiboxing. Not only are they excellent for graphics but they are also light and portable.

Cons: I had to glue the mounting stand plate into the monitor as there are no screw holes for mounting. No biggie, as even with the players attached, both monitors fit in my laptop case with the laptop, mouse, and keypad.

Overall Review: I would highly recommend this monitor for multiboxers looking for additional screens for their laptop setup.

Great second screen, using it with a dual booted Ubuntu 18/Windows 10 set up with NVIDIA drivers 4/18/2020 9:37:52 AM

Pros: - Easy to use on Windows
- Great FPS
- Crisp
- Seems durable and sturdy

Cons: - Huge hassle to install on Ubuntu due to NVIDIA drivers, but 6 hours later works good. Use xrandr, update the drivers, and it should function (on a clean install at least) - but if not, duckduckgo your graphics card and Ubuntu and you should find the right drivers/updates for dual monitor set up

Overall Review: - Definitely, worth the money

Not a gaming monitor 4/11/2020 12:30:32 PM

Pros: Speakers
Headphone jack
Different cable options

Cons: 25 ms GTG response time makes this unusable for gaming.

Overall Review: I typically buy MSI because of the quality behind their products. But I find it misleading that they call this a gaming monitor at 25ms GTG response time. Asus has one for the same price with a GTG of 5ms. Look elsewhere if you are looking to use this for gaming.

Very nice portable monitor 3/18/2020 7:06:06 PM

Pros: This monitor is very well built which was my concern with some other monitors I compared it against. It worked easily with both my Windows laptop and with my Mac. The monitor is thin and easily portable. I love that it has thin bezels and takes up so much less space than a typical monitor. The included cover is a nice addition and works well as a stable monitor stand. The key thing about folding the cover is that you have to fold the short section of the cover back onto itself (attaches magnetically) to form the prop for the base. Once you figure that out, the rest is easy. I also like that the monitor has speakers built in which gives it extra flexibility. I have a separate TV tuner and antenna which I can also plug in through HDMI and use the monitor as a small TV.

Cons: The brightness of the screen isn't as much as i would have liked. I think the main issue is that the screen is glossy which makes working with it near a sunny window more difficult. However, if you turn the screen brightness up to 90%, it works fine. Away from a sunny window and in normal indoor lighting the screen brightness is more than sufficient.

Overall Review: This is a great portable monitor and I highly recommend it. It definitely increases productivity and was a great purchase.

Not working with USB cables 3/18/2020 4:15:03 PM

Pros: Looks good, worked on the HDMI cable

Cons: Can get it to display using the USB cables, tried two different Window 10 PC's

Overall Review: Will call to return as I need the USB connection to work, had a ASUS USB monitor before and it worked.
