Product Snapshot


Intro: The HP EliteDisplay S14 USB C Portable Monitor is an affordable 2018 release that guarantees sharp image quality thanks to its Full HD resolution and a slim, compact design that is sure to fit into a tight workspace.

With no power cable required, users are sure to enjoy a clean, clutter-free setup, regardless of wherever they choose to enjoy dual-display productivity. The display also features a foldable protective cover that also works as a stand, making it more versatile than the Lenovo ThinkVision M14, which doesn’t have a cover.

The HP EliteDisplay S14 USB C Portable Monitor is a great choice for those looking for a second screen to boost productivity. But its low black levels and color accuracy may not be up to everyone’s standards. Plus, it doesn’t support HDR, so movie-lovers may want to look elsewhere. Still, its sleek design and dual-function cover could be enough to sway potential buyers.
