If you're sitting on the fence on whether to pay the premium for an ASUS zenscreen or save a few bucks and settle for one of those cheaper OEM alternatives, I'd highly recommend you to just get the ASUS. I too, went for the cheaper ones, and ended up hating the quality and returning them. This model from ASUS works as advertised - build quality is fantastic, screen quality and color are also much better compared to the cheaper OEM models.
As for the display - very nice. No issues - it is as expected. However, the video support for USB-C on Windows 10 is buggy causing both display corruption and system crashes. Using the HDMI input - works fine. Nothing but problems using it via. USB-C. So - a recommend with a video cable, absolutely not recommended if planning to use via. USB-C cable connection.
In 15 years working as a journalist and documentary filmmaker in some pretty rough places I have never had a single piece of equipment get damaged while traveling. But after just a couple weeks of using this monitor it somehow became internally damaged during a 2 hr flight from Chicago to Dallas while wrapped in the provided protective cover and in a padded laptop sleeve in my carry on bag. I contacted Asus who told me they cannot replace, repair or refund the screen since the warranty does not cover physical damage. To market this monitor as a "travel monitor" is a joke. It's the most fragile piece of equipment I've ever owned, a complete waste of money.
During the couple weeks of use broke it worked OK, although not very bright. There are *far better* and *far cheaper* monitor options out there than this one. The only plus for this monitor is its size and weight, but if it can't survive being carefully tucked in a bag then it's useless. Do not buy it.
I am so upset! I purchased this Asus Zenscreen only 6 months ago to use with my laptop because I am working from home. The screen has not moved since I bought it and every morning I plug it into my laptop then unplug it when I am done for the day and just leave it. Well, this morning I turned on my laptop and plugged in the screen in and all I see is a green light on the power button and the screen is black. I have tried holding the power button, holding the menu button, and even holding both down together and nothing works. I have tried plugging it into my cell thinking it might be my laptop and the same thing happens. I cannot believe I spent this much money on something to only worked for 6 months. Normally I would not panic but after researching my issue on google this seems to be an ongoing problem that is being reported to Asus. Asus seems to think it is okay to take people's money and continue to sell a defective product. I am now going to try and leave it unplugged for 2 days to completely drain the battery and see if that helps. If not I will be contacting Asus which, to be honest, I don't expect much considering I have yet to read 1 positive experience with their customer service team. I cannot afford to buy a new screen so wish me luck. I will update this review if anything changes.
I was wasting too much time doing back and forth between documents / windows on my 13-inch screen. I have been using a cable to hook up my laptop to my TV screen, which was OK, but obviously limited.
I wanted a USB Type C monitor, so after some search, I found the ZenScreen. It was plug and play, instantly.
The screen is light, the settings easy to adjust and the picture quality is plenty sufficient for my needs. Personally, I never had issues adjusting brightness, and didn't download any software. As mentioned, my experience was plug and play.
Since my MacBook only has 2 ports, I wanted to plug the screen into my adaptor (Ugreen). Unfortunately, the screen only works when directly connected to the laptop (I only have this adaptor, so I don't know if it will be the same with others). Also, the screen auto-rotation feature doesn't work with a Mac, which is not problematic for me, but could be for others.
The cable connection is on the left side. This is a bit annoying. It would have been nice to have the choice of connecting on either side, or at least having a different cable end so it doesn't stick out so much.
The impact of the screen on the laptop battery is significant: doing regular web searches, using Office apps (Word, Powerpoint, Excel), downloading and reading PDFs, I had a total of 3h40 with the screen VS approximately 8h without it.
Overall, although a bit pricey, I like the screen and it is quite useful for certain type of work. Since it considerably drains my laptop battery, I have to restrict my usage to places where I can charge.
La pantalla (MB16AMT) cumple su objetivo, su portabilidad es de lo mejor. Su taza de refresco es de 60Hz así que si eres gamer también te sirve. Lo he conectado a la Nintendo Switch y va de maravilla. La conecto a la Asus Zenbook y aunque tiene puerto USB C no da vídeo constante, la tengo que conectar por HDMI. Hasta ahora no he logrado echar a andar el touch cuando la conecto a la Zenbook pero si la conecto al galaxy S10 este lo detecta como si fuera el dock y eso es genial. La parte inferior es muy frágil así que hay que tener cuidado con eso.
The build quality and screen are very good for a 1080 monitor.
I was expecting a real ASUS pen not a $1 pen with a rubber button on top. I thought I was getting one of the ASUS active pens that would justify the high price for this monitor. It was an ink pen with a rubber button on top, not really worth advertising they are included a pen.
Also, the case is very different. The monitor does not snap in or is protected. It is a folder that folds over the monitor. It is magnetic but it isn't anything like a case for a Surface or Ipad. It is a bit awkward to set up and the monitor is free to move on the stand. I find the monitor slides of the stand frequently.
I just got it a few days ago so I can't comment on how long the battery will last.
