Cons: wish it was available in hd+ resolution (1600x900)
"The mobility and utility of this monitor is awesome!
It really helps with one-on-one collaboration, without invading personal spaces.
It's great for multitasking while on web conferences. Put the web conference on the extended screen monitor, and you don't miss a beat.
The screen is bright and crisp. I've ditched the supplied heavy duty USB Y-cable and replaced it with a thin retractable USB cable without any power or display problems.
When I use it in duplicate-the-display mode, it drops my laptop down to HD Resolution 1366x768 (but not when using it in extended screen mode). I only wish it came in HD+ Resolution 1600x900 to match my laptop screen!"
Cons: Input/Output compatibility, Included Software
"My job requires me to travel a lot, and after years of looking for a great travel friendly external monitor I found the "Lenovo ThinkVision LT1421 Portable 14 inch LCD monitor".
It has the perfect size, weight without sacrificing the image quality.
I'm amazed at how well it works and the overall performance.
The bigness is not SUPER bright (it’s bright enough) but hey, it runs from USB power.
If you travel a lot and need a second display or maybe a bigger display (connect an external keyboard and a mouse and use it as a main monitor) this is the display to buy.
My only complain is that since I have no CD drive in my laptop I had to download the drivers. It was impossible to find the drivers on the Lenovo website and I ended up downloading them from the Display Link website."

Review 4 for Lenovo ThinkVision LT1421 Portable 14 inch LCD monitor with Plastic Cover
Date:April 4, 2012
"Super portable, the cover it comes with is pretty tough, just plug it in a use it - I watch netflix, multitask and use it for keeping electronic medical research pages open for reference while I'm working on a case on the laptop's monitor...
Basically, this is awesome If you're tired of feeling cramped on your screen get this thing."
