Mimo Small USB Monitor - My Favorite Gadget!

Updated on September 20, 2014

The Benefits Of A Small USB Monitor

I am a bit of a Twitter addict which makes the Mimo USB Monitor one of my favorite gadgets! Let me explain. The Mimo is a compact and portable monitor which you can attach to your computer and display any application or a webpage on so that whilst you are working on other things you can keep a watchful eye on what is happening on this small monitor.

So have you guessed what I have displayed on it? Yes of course you have! Twitter! So whilst I am working away perhaps creating a page on a website, writing an article or any of the other tasks that we do on our computers I can also keep an eye on what's happening on Twitter.

But that's not the only thing you can use it for of course. I know a number of people who use it for chat programs, their email, video chats and so on.

There are just so many good uses for it. What I really love about it, especially when I am using it for other things than Twitter is that it offers swivel functionality. It is also extremely portable which means that I can take it with me into the office or when I am on my travels with my laptop and it doesn't take up a lot of space.

Why Do You Need A Small USB Monitor?

Let's take a look at some of the other great features and benefits of the Mimo USB Monitor.

Superb Resolution for a Portable Solution

This mini display features and 800 x 480 resolution, which is quite good for any portable display solution which features the option to choose from horizontal and vertical display. It's 7 inch portable monitor, so to speak, and comes with an integrated stand and cover. I mentioned earlier how little space it takes up and you can add to that the fact it also weighs less than a pound.

Just Plug and Play

As much as I love technology and gadgets I hate having to mess about setting things up - who doesn't! The Mimo USNB Monitor is great because It works right out of the box, even without the installation disk that comes with it all the drivers that can be downloaded from their website.

If like me you want to use it with your desktop at home, and also with your laptop at the office. Then it's very straightforward! There's no need to worry about getting scratches on the screen when it is carried around. The cover protects it from getting damaged on the way when you are planning to use it elsewhere. Not just that, this foldable design means - just get the cover off, arrange it in the portrait or landscape mode, and start it up right away by connecting it through the USB port of the main device. That's it, and it's good to go.

Reliable and Hassle-Free

When you come to depend on gadgets then one thing you definitely want is for them to be reliable and not give you any hassle.

The build quality of the Mimo USB Monitor is certainly better than I expected for the price, and I would say that the picture quality is similar to what is offered by regular laptops. The most common issue with such kinds of devices is the inability to find the right driver.

I would say that it is a really good option for someone who wants a display solution that's fairly easy to carry. I would say that it would be ideal for someone who has a smaller laptop or netbook and sometimes needs more monitor display space. In addition to that, many users will find it helpful for tracking twitter, emails or chat messages while using the main monitors for work, playing games or watching videos.

What Do You Get With Your Mimo USB Monitor?

It comes with a USB cable, a stand, installation disk and user manual. In short, mini displays are great for using applications that are better displayed on an additional monitor rather than the main monitor. That's exactly what the Mimo USB Monitor does, and more. It's designed for simplifying your screen display, and offering a lot of convenience for users who need to multi-task!

Touch Screen USB Monitor Option

If the Mimo USB Monitor really appeals to you but you would love to add Touch Screen functionality then don't worry there is a version with that included.

It costs a little more but if touchscreen capability is important to you then of course you are not going to worry about paying a little more.
