Consensus

our Verdict

The AOC I1601FWUX USB-C Portable Monitor is a great pick for those who need extra screen space on the go. Its lightweight and slim design make it exceptionally portable, and its single USB-C cable functionality both transfers power and extends your current display. Perfect for travel writers and multitaskers! Unfortunately, its limited color gamut, contrast, and power button control make it less than ideal for color-dependent work or movie watching.
