REVIEW – Whenever I am out and about with my EDC backpack, the contents always include a smartphone, an iPad Pro and a laptop. I am always editing photos and/or videos or writing or researching while on the go, and I often find that I could be much more productive if I could just have a bit more desktop workspace. Enter the Auzai Portable Monitor – 15.6-Inch USB-C Portable Display, 1080P Full HD IPS Panel. This monitor may just do the trick!!

This Auzai monitor is very compact, and when folded it measures 13.9 inches long, 8.7 inches wide, and less than 1/2 inch thick. It will easily fit in your laptop bag and is a perfect fit for a multi-monitor configuration. It has a wide viewing angle that provides good options for placement and it comes with a magnetic case that also serves as the stand.
On one side edge of the monitor, as shown below from left to right, there is Power/Return Button, the Menu Button, and the 3.5mm Audio Port.
On the other side edge of the monitor from left to right as shown below, there is the mini HDMI port, the USB Type-C Data Transmission Port and the USB Type-C Power Supply.

What I like
- It is lightweight and compact and very portable
- The versatile connectivity options
What I’d change
- I think that the case as a stand can be somewhat more stable, but this is more of a personal issue
This Auzai monitor is well designed and compact and lightweight enough to be a part of my EDC gear. The screen is bright and pleasant to look at, and while it is not 4K, I do not think that for practical use anything more than 1080 is needed to meet the majority of use cases. In addition, it offers enough connectivity options to make it versatile. The ability to use it with various devices and the ease of use make it a winner for me, especially when you need to enlarge your work area be it for just viewing or to support better productivity. I give it a well done and 2 thumbs up.
