G-STORY – Enjoy the legendary story of your gaming life.
If you want to use this monitor, you have to connect power source and provide a signal source(your PC, laptop, PS4 console, etc.) for it, then the monitor will display pictures.
If you want to use touch function, your mobile devices should in USB 3.1 Gen2 port and support video output via USB 3.1 Gen2 port. If your PC or laptop only has HDMI port, and your system is Windows7 or above, to use touch function when connected via HDMI port, you need three cables: one HDMI to mini HDMI cable(included), two USB-A to USB-C cables(only one included). The upper USB-C port is for touch function, the lower USB-C port is for power. For MacBook, only single point touch works. And touch function will not work on game consoles such as PS4, Xbox, Switch, etc.

- Touchscreen. If it wasn't for that, I'd stick with my two ASUS MB-168B+, which I've used and appreciated for years.
- Very sturdy fit and finish. My ASUS back cover is dented and scratched.
- Combination screen cover and stand is much more stable than ASUS.
- Cable ports feel strong and solid. The ASUS has a slanted look, so the cable ports surfaces aren't flat, leading to the cables always wiggling.
- Comes with all the cables to cover all the use cases I have.
- Works with HDMI. ASUS is USB 3.0 only (remember, I have the older MB-168B+, not the USB-C MB-169B+)
- Very detailed on-screen menu.
- Costs less than the ASUS MB-169B+ USB-C monitor: $170 vs. $200.
- Built-in speakers. And headphone jacks (but I'll likely never use them.)
- Drains battery very quickly. (But it comes with a wall-wart to power it).
- No documentation. Not in Chinese, not in English, nothing.
- Menu navigation is by a physical control, not by touch. And the physical control isn't very easy to use.
- The micro USB alone is not sufficient to operate the monitor. You have to go either USB-C, or micro USB + HDMI
The out-of-box-experience (OOBE) is hit-and-miss. I've purchased many Chinese-made goods, and there's a certain odor that always seems to come with larger goods. That odor is very strong with the two I purchased. Nothing life-threatening, but enough for me to note it.
It is very well padded. Each comes with a cloth sleeve, like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071RXQF3J with a pocket on the side to hold the cables and power adapter. This is on top of a foam layer, under which rests the monitor. It has generous padding on all four sides, and rests on another bed of foam. I could probably drop this from chest-height and only damage the box.
The cover extends over the back, across the top, and down the front of the monitor. It's cloth-covered plastic or metal. It attaches magnetically to the back of the monitor. Look at the side photo of the monitor. See how it is wider at the bottom and narrower on top? The narrow part is for the cover to attach to the monitor.
Lacking documentation, it took me a bit to figure out how to get the cover to act as a stand. When I did, I felt foolish for over-complicating it. You just flip it over the back, and splay out the lower of the two plates that used to cover the monitor.
The USB-C, micro-USB 2.0, and HDMI cables are just long enough to reach from one side of your laptop, across the back, and across the back of the monitor to connect, in a worst-case scenario. My ASUS came with one cable that was 2' long, which was far longer than I ever needed.
The colour quality is about the same as the ASUS, though there are a lot more settings to adjust: brightness, contrast, colour temperature, gamma, and black balance. I've not tried all the settings, so the picture probably doesn't show the colour quality at its best. I'd not use it for GIMP, but for coding, I've no problems with it. Basically, it's a wash compared to the ASUS.
In short, it's heavier than the ASUS, doesn't work with USB 3.0 ports (without additional HDMI), and drains the battery much faster. However, the build quality is much higher, and it's touchscreen. It's also less expensive. Oh, did I mention it is touchscreen?
Be aware though that the (Usb C) to (Usb C) cable that comes with this from my experience is a bit of a stiff cable so bumping the cable may make the screen turn on and off.
Getting a better quality (Usb C) to Usb C cable is something to consider it will make the experience way better and a less stiff cable will prolong the life of the (Usb C) connector within the screen and the device its connected to.
The build of the monitor itself is pretty good, and the touch functions all work well.
Viewing angle is OK horizontally. Vertically, if viewed from straight on or slightly above, the colors and contrast are good. But everything goes monochrome if I slouch down too far. It's an artifact of TN monitors. (It can be hard to go back to TN after getting used to IPS.)
The stand/bracket that came with my screen is not covered in leather as advertised. It's not even covered in fake leather or cloth. It's just three mildly magnetic panels sealed in something like hard vinyl or plastic that is smooth on one side and has fine diagonal grooves on the other. On a smooth surface like a table or desk the bottom panel slips out and the screen falls. I find it far from sturdy enough to hold it up while using the touch screen. Also, the magnetized panel isn't strong enough to reliably hold the stand to the back of the screen. It takes carefully setting it up on cloth or a rubber pad to get it all to work.
The cable connectors on the bottom right edge of the screen are very exposed. To use it with the PI 4, it takes plugging in three cables: hdmi, usb c (touch data), and a separate usb c for power. With those cables all hanging out it looks like it would take a bit of care not to over-stress and eventually break the connectors in the screen. The fact that the screen came with a USB C power connector socket that was already a bit loose adds to that concern, and also makes me wonder if I got a return rather than new stock from Amazon.
The remote is really cheap and a bit flaky. It sometimes fails to send and sometimes sends key presses twice. But it can be made to work. I don't consider that to be a deal breaker.
I like that the monitor is powered via the usb C port. I used a single 20100mAh power bank to power both the screen and a PI 4. Four hours took the power bank from a full to a little below half full.
This is a reasonably nice touch monitor but I'm disappointed with the stand, and I miss the good color and viewing angles of ips. Also, I'm concerned about loose/defective usb C power port and stress placed the other ports.
I'm tending toward returning it because of the loose usb port, the limited viewing angle of this kind of monitor, and the stand being somewhat less than advertised. If the viewing angle wasn't an issue, and if my device could use a single usb connector to provide video, data, and power, I might accept the other shortcomings.
