    Объективно жаль, что только Самсунг сейчас Форсит тему с подключением своих устройств к различным док станциям. Для работы с 90% потребительских задач такая связка была бы очень удобна: браузер, стриминг, работа с документами. А относительно этого монитора, для графики и монтажа он навряд ли подходит, только для работы с таблицами и текстом. Но пока развернешь всю свою переносную рабочую станцию в какой нибудь кофешке, твой эспрессо ужа давно остынет.

    honestly was amazed by this until the stand. A touch screen monitor cant be wobbly the only way that much wobble would be acceptable is if it wasn't being touched to be used.

    If it weren't for the price and the specs this would be pretty interesting. I mean if this were in the $100-$150 range I'd actually consider it but for twice plus no thank you. I'm sure there's a market for this but it's a pretty small very niche one.

    A solution in search of a problem. The whole point of laptops is portability, and sacrificing screen space is part of the deal. Adding a “portable monitor” adds screen space by sacrificing some portability, and if you need to do that, there are other solutions - bigger laptops, or return to your office or home and dock to your desktop setup. And if you’re a MacBook and iPad owner, you could just use Sidecar.

    I think it would be nice if you did a video on which portable monitor someone should depending on their use (like you've already done with entire computer and stuff). I think that most people who would want a portable monitor would want it for basic desktop stuff but still some could want more color accurate ones, high refresh rates ones, etc...

    Using touch screen on monitors is a shit experience. Other than that the monitor keeps wobbling around, your hands pains in just a few minutes. The ergonomics are shit. I kinda get why Apple does not want to give touchscreen and I am with them on this one.

    Probably the thinnest among mainstream brands sure, but I have a "4mm thick" portable 4k touchscreen from aliexpress (it's not if you measure it pessimistically, but neither is this thing going by the ports) that cost around the same asking price. I love these portable monitors but if anything the thinner ones make me uneasy, I have an ~11mm thick model as well and it's much more reassuring to interact with.

    This could be the device I'm searching for, due to MacOS support. Could you tell me if it supports gestures, etc please? I ask for a rather unique reason. I'm blind and use VoiceOver on the Mac. I'm searching for a touch screen to allow me to control particular software to provide me with an easier way of working, rather than routing to an iPad, etc, I'd rather a direct display. If you could advise me, I'd much appreciate it. Also, who's the manufacturer? this is so I can contact them directly to ask if they could provide a unit on trial in order to undertake R&D to particular accessibility software to encourage Apple to officially support touch environments within MacOS and VoiceOver. Why should the ipad have all the fun?

    The wobbliness is plain horrible. It is impossible to use this screen as touch screen with such movement. My HP laptop doesn't seem wobbly at all, but once i start poking fingers around, have to hold it still with another hand when i need accuracy.

He got no info about the product, are not validating the claimed specs, and fx checking the brightness that often is highly overpromised and close to 200 then 300, he has spent no time actually examing the content and what could be interesting to show for the viewers, that you're afterall trying to sell this product too. all you doing is sitting like a bozo and fooling around with it and acting more stupider than I reckon you actually are.

    As a MacBook user, I don’t see the benefit of this display compared to just using an iPad in sidecar mode. Sure, it is a little bigger but an iPad has Apple Pencil support and can be used the without the MacBook as well. It makes me wonder why this display targets MacBook owners in particular. They already have a great wireless solution for this problem.
