REVIEW – I’ve been using a MacBook as my main computer for many years now. It’s a workhorse that I enjoy using on my lap and at a desk. But like all laptops, the screen can sometimes feel cramped when I am trying to compare two documents or open two browser windows. When I’m using my MacBook in my office, it’s connected to a Dell Ultrasharp curved 49in monitor but when I travel I’m stuck with the stock 13-inch display. Or am I? Today I want to show you the Kwumsy P2 Pro 13.3″ Tri Screen protable laptop monitor.

What’s in the box?

Design and features

kwumsy 12

The Kwumsy P2 Pro 13.3″ Tri Screen portable laptop monitor is designed for travel. Included with the unit is a case.

kwumsy 10

The case wraps around the unit and uses Velcro to keep it in place.

kwumsy 11

There’s even a built-in handle for even more convenience.

kwumsy 13

The Kwumsy P2 Pro Tri Screen folds up to look like one singular 13.3 inch monitor.

kwumsy 16

The back side has 6 rubber lined grips that are used to mount the monitor on your existing 13.3 – 16.5 inch laptop. I did all of my testing of the P2 Pro with my 13 inch MacBook Pro (M1).

The P2 Pro unfolds like a butterfly to reveal two 13.3 inch 1080P monitors with a holder in the center.

The back of the holder has an adjustable flip-out kickstand that provides stability to the existing laptop while the P2 Pro Tri Screen is attached.

Connecting the Kwumsy P2 Pro Tri Screen to my MacBook

kwumsy 20

Let’s start with a before image. This is my normal office setup. I have my 13 inch MacBook Pro (M1) connected to the Dell ultrawide monitor with a single USB-C cable. Let’s see if we can create a similar setup for travel.

kwumsy 22

The edge of the Kwumsy P2 Pro has a button that when pressed, allows the two parts of the laptop holder to slide apart.

Then it’s just a matter of placing the P2 Pro against the back of the MacBook Pro’s display and then sliding the two parts of the holder together. The Tri Screen automatically locks securely in place when the fit is adjusted.

The kickstand can then fold out to provide stability.

In the image above, you’ll notice that there are 3 buttons on the top edge of the P2 Pro. There’s the power button and two up/down buttons that are used to navigate the OSD menu for adjusting the monitor’s settings.

Along the bottom edge of the P2 Pro are two USB-C ports. For some strange reason, Kwumsy added plastic around the ports which makes it almost impossible to use USB-C cables with this monitor other than the ones included with this unit. When I tried some of my existing cables, they wouldn’t completely seat in the ports due to the plastic around the ports.

When I connected the Kwumsy P2 Pro Tri Screen attached to my MacBook Pro with the included USB-C cable, the monitors would turn on but would quickly show a “no signal” message on the screens. A flip through the user manual showed that I needed to install a driver first.

The P2 Pro Tri Screen actually has a built-in microSD card reader and comes with a microSD card inserted in the reader with the drivers.

kwumsy 29

With the driver installed, the two new monitors showed up in the MacBook’s system settings and allowed me to arrange the order of the displays.

kwumsy 26

I think it’s really cool to be able to add two additional monitors to my MacBook with only one USB-C cable.

kwumsy 31

Using the built-in menus, I was able to adjust settings to somewhat brighten the display but I still found it to be noticably dimmer than my MacBook Pro’s retina display. Even set to full brightness, the P2 Pro isn’t as bright as the retina display but that shouldn’t be a surprise.

The P2 Pro might not be as bright or have the same vivid colors as your built-in laptop’s display, but the ability to easily add two extra screens to a laptop makes up for it. I can imagine taking the Kwumsy P2 Pro Tri Screen with me when I go on vacation because I obviously don’t know what a vacation is 😉

I can also imagine this monitor would be great for students who share small dorm rooms because they could fold it up and store it away when not using it. It would even be useful at a library while studying.

I should mention that while you can use this monitor with your laptop using a single USB-C cable, it does draw its power from the laptop itself and that power draw will obviously drain the laptop’s battery relatively quickly. For that reason, you’ll need to make sure that you connect a cable to the PD port on the Tri Screen and plug it into power if you plan to use this set up for any length of time. Also, using the PD port in addition to the other USB-C cable, will improve the screen’s brightness due to the extra power.

Here’s a flex pic of the Kwumsy P2 Pro Tri Screen and the Dell Ultrasharp connected to the MacBook Pro (M1) at the same time!

What I like

  • More screen space – duh!
  • Folds for travel
  • Easy to attach and remove
  • Has a built-in microSD card reader

What I’d change

  • I wish the screens were brighter when just using one USB-C cable
  • Fix the USB-C ports so that other cables can be used with this monitor

Final thoughts

The Kwumsy P2 Pro Tri Screen laptop monitor really impressed me by how easy it is to attach and remove it from a laptop and that it only needs one USB-C cable to add two monitors to a laptop. Although the monitor has some issues namely with brightness and USB-C ports, I think this monitor would be useful for travelers and students.

  1. Gadgeteer Comment Policy - Please read before commenting
  2. Am I correct in thinking that to use this with a Windows PC that doesn’t have a USB-C port you could use the USB-C to USB-A cable? Or is that cable only for the PD port? And if you can use the USB-A to a non-C laptop, then you can only use the PD port if you can connect it to a USB-C power supply because of the inability to use a “normal” USB-C cable?

  3. Do you know of a privacy screen protector ( preferably magnetic if the Kwumsy P2 supports it ) that I can use on this product . I couldn’t find one with the strange size / dimensions ..


  4. Hi there Julie! Never created a profile here, but have been a fan of you and The-Gadgeteer since the days of the US Robotics-branded Pilot (remember THAT!?).

    I really want a trifold monitor for my M1 Macbook Air and came across this review searching for one. This seems like a great option (noted that brightness is not ideal).

    Do you know if this Kwumsy model is the same as the Ofiyaa version (also called P2 Pro)? Pics and specs look much the same, and the Kwumsy is currently much cheaper ($469 for 13.3″).

    Thanks for this review and so many others over the years! You are an absolute gem <3.
