Are you a mobile worker that works on the notebook and prefer to view your presentations or spreadsheets on a larger screen. Is that possible at all unless you are glued to the office desk with a LCD monitor with HDMI input. Oh! Wait a minute, if you are still using your older notebooks, there is a high chance that they don’t even come with a HDMI port! How are you going to hook it up to a LED monitor?

Well, thanks to the advancement of technology, ASUS has developed the MB168B portable HD screen. This slim 15.6″ Full HD screen is powered by USB. Effectively, you do not even need a power bank to power it up as it taps the USB power through the USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 port on your notebook. With the leather case which also serves as the stand, the MB168 auto rotates between landscape and portrial mode based on it’s position. It also automatically adjusts itself to the ambient environment to reduce eye glare. On the next page, we take a look at the setup of this device.
