Desk Setup Upgrade: Adding A Unique Portable OLED Monitor!
Yeah. You heard me right its a portable OLED monitor, so its got a super bright and beautiful screen. Theres other features that its got, which were going to go into in todays video um, but the highlights for me are um. The OLED screen um a built in 10 000 milliampere battery, as well as a smart cover which pretty much allows you to prop it up vertically or horizontally, as well as provide protection for the screen, and you know the monitor itself. So you like to work on the road a lot. You know when youre traveling and you always need kind of a second screen, thats high quality, and this could really be what youve been looking for, and even if youre, just looking to set up a dual Miner setup, you know that doesnt take too much space um. You can definitely check out the portable Miner like this one as well theres other options out there, but honestly Ive not seen anyone as unique as this one lets check it out and find out. You know more about it were going to start with what you get inside the box. So, apart from the monitor, you also get two USBC to USBC cables: theres, a USB, a to USBC cable, a mini HDMI to HDMI cable, a Smart Cover case, a USBC power delivery, adapter and a manual as for the build quality. The Miner has an ultra slim profile and only weighs about 2.
2 pounds. Keep in mind, though, that this is without the Smart Cover, but thats also super thin and lightweight. The body also uses aluminum, which is great for durability. One more cool thing: theyve done is theyve managed to fit a 10 000 milliamp battery inside the monitor, which can power the monitor for two to three hours. So the miner can also serve as a power bank to power. You know your other devices or just to charge them, but youll need to make sure thats activated in the OSD menu all these different things combined to make the model all kind of the perfect companion to bring on a trip. The Smart Cover case feels very much like one youd get for an iPad if youre familiar with that its super lightweight and thin and can be used to prop up. You know the monitor in either a vertical or horizontal orientation. Honestly, it feels a lot safer to use in the horizontal position than in the vertical one. It also acts as a cover case for the monitor protecting that precious OLED screen theres a total of three buttons on the monitor. So, on the top right corner, you have the power button, which also doubles as a button for accessing the OSD menu short press, the button and you get access to things like the battery level. You know change of settings for the brightness call temperature and even more adjacent to the power button. Theres the up and down buttons for volume control.
Speaking of audio theres, two inbuilt speakers on either side of the miner and Ive found that the audio is okay, its decent, nothing, crazy, uh. It works well enough when theres, no better alternative, theres an LED indicator, light next to the power button as well. That lets you know the status of the miner at any given time as for connectivity options, theres three ports in total, two USBC ports, which can provide both power and signal to the Monitor and then theres, one mini HDMI port, which can only be used to provide Signal to the monitor, so you can change or switch between both USBC ports, but you only have the single HDMI port. Every port is located on the same side of the miner as well, and this is great for keeping cable tables on that side. For a cleaner look, the USBC and HDMI connectivity options make it possible to pretty much use the monitor with just about any device Im talking your PlayStation 5, your Xbox, your iPad, whatever it is your Windows PC now for the most impressive thing about the monitor the Screen The Miner is called the model o because you know its gotten all that screen, which is bright and beautiful. The screen size is 15.6 inches and you can get up to a maximum of 4K at 60hz resolution and refresh rate, The Miner has got a 100 DCI, P3 rating, which is perfect for reproducing accurate colors, especially in photo editing software like Lightroom and Photoshop.
Even in gaming, the screen gets very bright and the contrast ratio is a hundred thousand to one which is great. For contrast, you know deeper blacks, so I didnt see any HDR support across every device. I tried it with so you might want to keep that in mind. One unique feature the monitor has is auto rotation which allows the monitor to you know automatically switch between vertical and horizontal orientation when you flip it. So just like a phone would this feature wasnt perfect, but Im still messing around with it to see. If you know maybe Im missing something the feature can be turned on or off through the OSD menu as well. Finally, the screen has a 10 point. Multi touch support, which is awesome, but I wouldnt say its perfect. Yet you can only use a full feature when connected to Windows, OS with Mac OS youre limited to one point, multi touch, which you know works well enough, also keep in mind that you know to use Touch features you have to be connected through USBC, not mini Hdmi, it also didnt work very well when connected to the steam deck, and you know, thats not a problem at all, because honestly, thats, not what it was made for. Another way that you can access the on screen display menu without pressing any buttons is by swiping down with two fingers in the bottom right corner of the screen onto the OSD menu. You can manage all kinds of display settings.
You know things like your brightness. Your contrast and volume you can even choose from you know up to seven different color profiles. Depending on what youre doing you know, youve got game mode, youve got Adobe mode and all these different options for you to choose from you can also change. Color temperature. You know fine tune, color settings like saturation and sharpness like youre, given a lot of tools to work with you know, set up the monitor the way you want it to work. The model all was designed to work with just about any system, including systems running Mac OS. It can be connected to a Mac through USBC or HDMI 2.0. After connecting you get the usual Mac OS scaling options, you know so default more space and the likes you can also set up minor positioning if you plan on using it in a dual setup like mine, or even just as a second Miner, for your MacBook or Your Windows, PC, theres, tons of options for you, know color profiles, but I prefer to just match my ultra wide to this one. Using the model Os. You know color profile, so its got a weird name, but you know I just kind of matched them together. I use a docking station to send a video signal from my Mac to the ultrawide and the portable monitor this system keeps my desk setup clean and makes a minor mobile. All Ive got to do when I need to bring the miner with me is just disconnected from power and HDMI.
This also refers to my setup to a single display, for whenever you know, I prefer to use that the monitors inbuilt battery also makes it easy to use with my MacBook alone, when I decide to bring that around. Personally, I love how high quality that screen is, especially since it helps me. You know, in keeping my work consistent across multiple display place, so lets talk about my PC setup, so, just like with my Mac setup, the model o connects in the same way with PCS. I hooked it up to my desktop PC, which is also connected to an OLED TV uh. You get all the usual scaling options with Windows, 2 and Extreme color accuracy. Im talking this is the closest. You know that Ive had to on the OLED screen thats already there. The monitor I had there before could only output 1920 by 1080, so not 4K, and it definitely didnt have an OLED panel. Now I wish I had two of them, because this works very well in that setup as well. I use this setup mostly for gaming, but I like having a second Miner for when you know the main TV is occupied, just as an extension like. I think this monitor would be perfect for gamers or streamers. I like to you, know, play on large screen TVs, but still need a second display. I also decided to test the model or for gaming, and it worked great with a high end console like the PS5.
The calls on the OLED screen came out extremely nice and everything looked beautiful and vibrant. This doesnt support HDMI, 2.0 or HDR. So you know those features were not noticed at all, so dont expect to get Beyond 4 4K at 60 frames per second, when gaming on this, but honestly, most console games are still capped at 60 frames per second, so no need to worry too much there. I also tried it out with the steam Deck with some portable gameplay and found that it reproduced colors, contrast and brightness better than even on the deck itself. The inbuilt battery also means that it wont draw any power from the steam deck, which is great for portable gaming, especially since the steam deck does not have the best battery life. I know its not a cheap, Monitor and Im certain theres cheaper, but definitely none that Ive seen with features like this one Ill link it below in the description for anyone, thats interested in checking out the prices or you know any more stats on this thing. Also, just to let you guys know, you perfect, probably has some nice sales going on right now, especially since uh Black Friday is around the corner. So, if youre interested in this monitor the model o or any of their other portable monitors for your own mobile desk setup, then now would be a good time for you to check them out. Overall, I think the model O is a great addition to my portable workspace Arsenal and Im sure a lot of you guys out.
There will find it very useful as well, whether youre, a gamer or even a working professional thats it for this video.
