A nice, small basic monitor. Very portable but with a couple concerns. Most notably, no power switch or brightness control. Blue screen when idle is a little disappointing. On the other hand, screen looks good and is very handy.
Overall, this is a decent display with good viewing angles with the following limitations:
1. By default, the monitor is generally too bright. There is no brightness control. Therefore in darker environments it is challenging to use.
2. There is no input video detection with automatic conversion of aspect ratio. There are no options to manually pick an aspect ratio. This is a 4:3 monitor. If a 16:9 signal is input to the monitor (e.g. from a camera), the image gets stretched vertically. The use case for this monitor is therefore limited to computers with drivers that handle the aspect ratio differences in software. Therefore this is not useable with HD cameras, camcorders or video switchers which is unfortunate since the size and price are ideal for a small confidence monitor.
Exactly as advertised. Fitment and function are perfect.
Our grandson was really thrilled with this gift. Thanks
Works great with my Raspberry Pi 400. Very portable.
