I would love to have you as a member of the channel so that i can keep bringing you guys awesome tech reviews, but we only spend more time with that let’s talk about this.
Our zopa portable monitor okay. So we always talk about packaging it’s going to be brief. Today, this packaging is nice, uh kind of looks like an apple packaging. Just plain white, very sleek, very slim, nice thick cardboard, all around on the back. You do have a little bit of product information, basically saying this is a 15.6 ips monitor 16.9 aspect ratio. It has 1920 by 1080 at 60 hertz rev resolution, um brightness up to 300 cd i’m guessing that’s candles divided by meters, squared we’ll talk about the inputs and outputs when we pull it out, but all in all um it’s, just a very sleek, no nonsense packaging. So let’s pull the top off and take a look at what comes in the box now as i’m doing this? Why would you want? One of these i already mentioned? Students and creatives are the people that come to my mind, immediately i’m, someone that is working in the library at school and one monitor was fine up until i started studying for my board exams a little while ago, and then i really needed the space of two And i have dual monitors back here in my home office, but i don’t have that when i’m in the library – and so this allows me to take a monitor to school without a bulky stand, you know a big thick lcd monitor something like that. This is really compact and fits in my backpack easily. So this is the monitor itself, and already you can see how thin it is we’re going to keep it in the plastic for now and take a look at it in a moment that was just sitting inside this nice foam shape to the product like a hard Foam really good quality and then underneath you have some boxes with all of your accessories in it.
So with this monitor, you’re going to obviously get your user manual and a warranty review card right here and i’m happy to say this is a manual. It does have some pages and it covers all the different functions and specs of the unit. You’Ve got a couple other boxes here. This one is labeled accessories and inside of this you have a microfiber cleaning cloth as well as a usb power, brick. If you’re going to power this from the wall and while we’re talking about that let’s talk about why you would use this, this monitor can be used with usbc and powered from a laptop that offers power output via usbc. And if you have a laptop that does that, like mine, it actually will power it and send data in the same cable, which is awesome. If you don’t have usb c, you can use this with hdmi, which is included. We’Ll go over that in a second and you have to power it via usb, because hdmi does not transmit the power uh for the monitor, so they also do include an hdmi cable. I believe it’s, like mini hdmi, to the full size standard hdmi, so that is included in the box and then there’s one more uh thing of accessories here, and this is your usbc cables and there’s two in here this one’s unwrapped because i’ve been using it. This is just usbc to usbc, so if your laptop is compatible with that and then they also include a usbc to regular usb that you can put into the plug that goes into the wall.
So this would be to power it with the hdmi cord or you can use the single usbc usbc to power and send data to the laptop. So they include everything you need to get connected all in one box, which is super duper nice. Now let me set all of these accessories and packaging off to the side, real, quick and let me pull out the monitor itself, so i put it back in its plastic here. Um i’ve been using this for two or three months, but um. I wanted to package. It back up how it comes, and so it’s got a nice like faux leather cover right here, um and then this is the back side. This is kind of the the plasticky base at the bottom, where all the inputs and outputs are, and then this is the cover. I believe this whole thing is removable. If i’m not mistaken. Let me uh try yeah so that’s like the the screen right here and that’s like the cover, and so it just magnets onto the back of the screen like that. Now let me open it up for you and that is the screen. 15.6 inches plenty of space. It’S bigger than my laptop screen and the display quality is great. I will try and get some shots with my laptop here in a second. The cover, like i said, is magnet. All you have to do is fold it out like that. You can set it on your table.
I have to like lift my table up here, so you can see it there you go and uh. It sits up at a perfectly good angle right there it’s not very adjustable. As far as the angle, you’ve got a little bit of kind of movement there, but mostly it’s meant to just sit with uh that at the angle that it folds out too, and when you’re done. You just go like that magnets back and you can slip that in your backpack super slim easy to use now as far as inputs and outputs. Let me show you on this side. This is where you’re going to have your usb um for your charging. It has the little lightning icon, then there’s, the usb that you can use for combo, light power and data if you’re using it with that kind of laptop and then there’s a hdmi port right there, and those are the three that you would use on the other Side, you have a headphone output right here, so you can send audio straight from the monitor to your computer or from the uh. The monitor to your headphones there’s, also a little dial where you can adjust the brightness and the volume of the monitor. And then there is a little mode button to cycle between those two functions: it’s very simple: to operate the dial and the button are very easy to use and find they haven’t had any issues for me using them daily for the past couple of months.
So all in all again, the big thing for me is look how thin lightweight easy to slip in a backpack. The screen is protected by the cover um. You know i’ve carried this in and out of the building dozens and dozens of times and it’s held up super well. This is like glossy and it’s getting a lot of fingerprints on it. Um, so i mean there’s that so it doesn’t look very pretty, but it functions super well. So if i were to get my laptop, i would just fold this back tilt the screen. Let me tilt it down there, a sec for you, okay, there’s the screen. Let me grab the cable, which i just put back in the box, plug that in to your display, and then you just plug this in to your computer, and it will recognize the screen and pair to it immediately it’s, just like using any screen with hdmi. You know in any other way you just plug it in the computer will recognize it. It will automatically pop it up and then, if you need to, you, can go into your screen settings on your laptop to adjust whether you want this to mirror your first screen or you want it to be an additional secondary screen, and you know it’s in no Way different than using a second monitor on your office or home computer, so um, all in all the this is one of the coolest products that i have found in a long time.
Let me tilt that camera back up there. There we go! Ah, i use this. So much more than anything else, i bought on this channel i’m very impressed with it i’m very happy with it. No malfunctions, no issues at all. I bought this with my own money for studying and i’m very happy that i did so, and so you can get these for i paid under 150 and you know how amazon fluctuates. It shouldn’t be that expensive. So if you want to pick one of these up, i will include a link down in the description.
