Xebec Tri-Screen 2: Easy Triple Screen Action
It refers to a person who does his work remotely off a laptop meaning. He doesnt have to go into a set office and work set. Nine to five hours, and even though i think the term digital nomad is a little bit cringe worthy. I actually fit that description to a tea, at least before coven. Before covering i used to travel all around asia and just do all my work at random spots. In in shenzhen shanghai, in tokyo in barcelona, so basically my laptop was everything all my work came off of that, and even though i really like the versatility of the lifestyle working off a small laptop screen, just one laptop screen can be a little bit restricting all Of you who have two screen setups at your home office, will probably agree. 100. You can just get more done when you have an extra screen or even two extra screens and thats. Why ive always been a fan of two screen devices like the lg wing and the microsoft dual so anyway, todays video is about the z back charge screen two and, as the name implies yeah, it adds two more screens to your laptop to give it a total Of three screens lets check out the unboxing first because i actually think the unboxing experience is pretty cool. So if you look at the sides of the box, you see that there are these tabs made of cloth, you grab onto them and you pull and it opens up.
So i like this. This is designed to resemble the experience of pulling out the screens which well check out later. You have a get started guide here so in case you dont know how to set it up, scan the qr code and it will take you to instructional videos but its pretty easy to set up its really self explanatory and heres. The zbeck chart screen. So lets put it to the side first and look at what else is in the box, so i have to be honest, ive already unboxed this already, so i know whats in here, but i just wanted to show you guys the experience so right here. You have a bunch of cables and accessories, because the tri screen 2 is designed to work with just about any laptop, so with some laptops, youll need more cables than others. Fortunately, if you have a macro pro, you dont need much. You only need two usbc cables, which they provide right here, type c to type c cables. We have here a type c extension, so if, for some reason these cables arent long enough, you can always extend it right now. You look on the left side. Okay, now, on the left side, you have a an hdmi to mini hdmi cable. This is another one hdmi hdmi. So if you have an older laptop that stores an hdmi port – and this is what you will use – you have two usb a to usb c adapters.
So these are for older laptops without a usb c port, and you have an elbow extension, so this is yet another usbc extension that basically turns the plug sideways. So, for some reason, if your laptop has has really tight space, then you can plug this extension in to get a little bit more wiggle room in terms of where your cables go. Okay, so heres the z back tri screen two. The whole thing is crafted on. Mostly plastic to keep the weight down, so it weighs only two pounds like this whole thing, two pounds and its about one inch in thickness. Now you flip it around the front. Youll see these elastic bands here. This is what allows the z back charge screen to snap onto any laptop. So let me set up on my 16 inch macbook pro with all usb c ports, so i only need to use a type c type c dongle, so i just have to pull and clip it onto the laptop like so now on the back here you see The little kickstand you will need to use the kickstand, because you know this thing weighs two pounds, so you can just have it hang off your laptop like that without any support, so you open up the kickstand. It will prop up the screen once the kickstand is on its really sturdy and stable. Then from here you just pull from the sides to pull off the screen. Now these screens have a hinge that can rotate 180 degrees just tilt a little bit towards yourself.
This is a good angle and then you just have to plug in these type c cables, so there are ports down below of each screen, so just simply plug it in plug into your laptops screen turn on your macbook, while youre at it yep. It is now powered on now. If this is your first time setting up, you may have to go to display preferences to set up the monitors, because the computer has to know where the screens are in relation to your screen. So lets go to arrangement just like that. It is now set up. So now i should be able to drag windows to the right, and now i have a proper multi screen setup now. This is very useful for my work because a lot of times i have to have slack open, while i have another window open for word document and then a third window open to keep track of twitter stuff, like that, so just having three screens just make it So much easier, i got to keep cycling through the screens. This is super useful when im editing, videos too, because now i can just have the video playing in one screen and keep my main screen showing the timeline for me to make the cuts and edits. As i need now, these screens measures 10 1 inches diagonally with a resolution of 1920 by 1080, so theyre more than sharp enough maximum brightness is okay, theyre, not the brightest screens around, but definitely more than usable indoors.
If you are using this at the beach, you might struggle a little bit on a really sunny day, but for the most part right now, the left screen is only at 50 brightness and you can still see everything pretty well lets go up to max brightness. You can also adjust temperature all that down here. There are these menu buttons up top and then at the bottom of the screen are two usbc ports and one mini hdmi port. So if you have an older laptop that doesnt have a usbc port, but it has a hdmi port, then thats, the cable that you plug into the z back. Try screen 2 also supports pass through charging. That means the usbc cable that you use to charge your laptop. If you plug into the try screen to use a port right here, it will also charge your laptop. So i like how easy it is to snug the charge screen too. It really takes less than 20 seconds to clip the thing onto my laptop pull the screens out plug in the cable. Now i also tried to see z back, try screen 2 on my huawei mate x, pro 2021 edition. Unfortunately, that laptop only has one usb c port on the left side and on the right side, is a low power usb a port. So i could not get two screens working on that laptop. Instead, i can only get one screen working, but even having one extra screen is still better than having none.
When youre done using everything, just simply unplug the cable, you can close the screen back in and then you can even close the laptop with the z back staying on and just carry your entire thing like this. Now i got ta be honest. The macbook 16 inch is pretty heavy and big as it is. So when you put the z batch high screen two on top of it, it does make it quite bulky and quite heavy now. This thing is like close to five six pounds, but it can still fit into your backpack now its not gon na be fun lugging this around all day traveling around all day, but if im just going to a coffee shop in my neighborhood that i know is Only like a five minute walk then its not bad. I can put this in my backpack and bring it with me and its small enough that i can set up on even a tiny tray table like this and hong kong. Coffee shops have really small tray tables. So i can definitely get this up and running in most hong kong coffee shops, so zbeck is selling the try screen 2 for 499 us dollars now. Some of you guys are going to think 4.99 is a little bit expensive because you can definitely buy a thin monitor for around 150. For one, so i mean you can get two for three hundred dollars, but you have to remember those do not have to kind of clever clip on design the z back track screen too.
So you know i used one of those before if you want to set it up next to your laptop, you need more table space to put it down right next to your laptop, so you have to factor in that. Zbag did come up with a pretty ingenious design, in that you dont need more table space to set up the two screens, and the whole thing is a little bit more easier to carry, because it is one piece because, like i said, you can attach the tri Screen to your laptop just like this and walk anywhere go anywhere. Knowing you have two screens ready to go at all time. I mean you can even set this up on your lap. If you want to, i mean youd, have to put the kickstand against your knee, which might be weird. You cannot do that if you buy two separate screens separately, unless you plan on plopping onto the sofa like this, so yeah thats about it.
