Best Portable Computer Monitors

Best Portable Computer Monitors – The best portable monitors and second screens not only make it easier to work from home on business tasks, but they also don’t require that much extra desk space.

1.ASUS VP249QGR 23.8”

Pros & Cons

The ASUS VP249QGR is an affordable 24″ 1080p 144Hz IPS gaming monitor. It provides excellent image quality, smooth performance and many useful features for the price. There are better (though slightly more expensive) alternatives, but if you have a limited budget you won’t be disappointed by the VP249QGR.

Naturally, VA panel monitors at this price range have a higher contrast ratio (~3,000:1), so blacks won’t be as deep on the ASUS VP249QGR, but the IPS technology has other benefits including more vibrant color reproduction, wider viewing angles and usually faster pixel response time.

2.Sceptre IPS 27 inch

Pros & Cons

If you want to get a multi-purpose monitor that ensures you enjoy the best viewing experience, you should consider a Sceptre monitor. Sceptre is a reputable brand that offers some of the best monitors in the market. And it’s not like you can’t find them among top under 200 dollars displays on offer and budget 144Hz monitors, as reviewed here.

So, which type of Sceptre monitor should you go for? Our honest and detailed review looks at different types of monitors to help you make an informed decision.

3.ASUS VP28UQG 28″

Pros & Cons

If you’re more of a casual gamer or non-gamer and have a budget rig running a lower-end graphics card, you might find one of the best budget 4K monitors useful. At \(as of this writing), the Asus VP28UQG tries to make that list by offering strong value, as well as what you need to enjoy tear-frame gaming at modest frame rates (it has a 60 Hz refresh rate, 1ms GTG response time and Adaptive-Sync) while offering the productivity benefits of 4K.

But to do this at such a low price, the screen opts for a TN panel that lacks the ability to really make games (or other media) pop.

4.ASUS ZenScreen 15.6″

Pros & Cons

The Asus ZenScreen (MB16ACE) is rather conventional as recent Asus mobile monitors go, dropping the touch-screen capabilities of the Editors’ Choice-winning Asus ZenScreen Touch (MB16AMT) and the internal battery found in both the ZenScreen Touch and the Asus ZenScreen Go.

The  MB16ACE comes in at a considerably lower price, though, and the features it does include—among them a 15.6-inch 1080p screen, an easy-to-navigate onscreen display (OSD), and USB Type-C connectivity to provide both data or video and power over a single cable—make it a solid choice for business and general use alike.

5.Lepow 15.6 Inch

Pros & Cons

The Lepow 15.6-inch Portable Monitor  is one of the better large-screen mobile displays we’ve tested, thanks to its 1080p native resolution and a wider selection of inputs than you’ll find on most briefcase monitors. But although its pixel count is good and the screen is roomy, its colors look flat (a common issue among recent portable monitors). That makes it best for productivity use, though it’s okay for casual video or photo consumption.

If you shop carefully, you may be able to pick it up at a bargain price. Note, though, that most competing portable monitors, including our Editors’ Choice pick, use smaller 14-inch panels.


Best Portable Computer Monitors – Portable monitors and second screens are also user-friendly in other ways, such as being lighted and more compact than traditional monitors, and they are also simpler and easier to set up – most are powered just by connecting it by a USB cable to your laptop. Some can even attach to your laptop, needing only to be flipped open to use.
