Whether you're outfitting a Raspberry Pi or just want a better screen when playing your Nintendo Switch on the go, there's plenty to choose from. Let's explore some of the best portable monitors worth your time and money.
This PERFECT 4K Computer Monitor doesn't come cheap. In fact, it's one of the most expensive entries on this list. However, you are sure to get more for your money if you spend on this monitor.
This Lenovo model is specially designed for portability. It achieves this with a lightweight frame that makes it easy to carry around with a laptop. Coupled with its -5 to 90 degree range, it's a useful way to set up a second monitor no matter where you are.
For a budget option, try the ASUS MB168B. It doesn't come with many flashy features – it only has a 1366 x 768 resolution, for example – but at its price it's one of the cheapest entries on this list. P>
This monitor uses a USB port to power it and receive video data, so you only need one cable. This is especially useful when you're traveling and don't want to waste time figuring out which wire goes where.
Due to its low price, you won't get stunning image quality or a built-in feel; However, it's one of the few portable monitors at such a low price that still does the job well.
If you love the ASUS brand but don't want something that slacks off on features, try the ASUS Zenscreen, the brand's most luxurious display.
Compared to the UPERFECT monitor we discussed above, the Zenscreen only goes up to 1080p and doesn't venture into 4K territory. However, what the Zenscreen lacks in resolution, it makes up for in features.
It has built-in speakers, which is very useful for turning the Zenscreen into its own independent monitor. It has a built-in battery, so you don't need to be sitting near a power supply to use it.
Even better, the Zenscreen has a touchscreen interface, which means you don't even need a keyboard or mouse to use it. Just plug it in and touch the screen to interact with what it displays.
If you want your screen to be as mobile as you are, try one of the portable monitors above and free yourself from your desk. If you often stare at the monitor, remember to use these tricks to avoid eye strain.
