A reliable portable monitor can help you to solve some problems in your work, such as a fluent presentation and Photoshop work. We recently review AUZAI’s new 15.6-Inch Ultra Slim Portable Monitor. Its LCD screen is designed to be compact and lightweight enough to pack away in your carry-on bag and to offer reliable performance for a variety of applications, ranging from gaming to working.
Now let’s take a closer look.
Let’s take a look at the AUZAI’s basic specifications first.
- 6-inch screen size
- IPS LED panel
- 1920 x 1080 resolution
- 6:9 aspect ratio
- 250 cd/m2 brightness
- 1,000:1 contrast ratio
- 30 ms response time
- USB Type-C and Mini HDMI inputs
- USB Type-C power supply included
- Weighs 4.05 pounds
- Measures 13.9 x 8.7 x 0.3 inches
The first attraction of the AUZAI is its compact size. When folded up, it measures 13.9 inches long, 8.7 inches wide, and a slim 0.3 inches thick, about the size of a legal notepad. Even if you pack light and your travel kit consists of a messenger bag, you’ll have plenty of space. The small size is also convenient for gaming. The kit includes a stiff plastic case, which conveniently doubles as a stand. The screen itself uses IPS LED diodes, which are optimized for a wide viewing angle. This is ideal. In this case, you can easily set the AUZAI to the side. Moreover, IPS diodes are also virtually flicker-free, so you won’t experience any irritating strobing. I mean, IPS LEDs aren’t the best choice for the most vibrant color, so you may see some issues with black balance. And after I tried, the screen won’t easily get scratched during use.
The speakers are about what you’d expect from speakers in a mid-priced portable monitor. They’re functional enough. If you want to get the most out of the AUZAI – or any monitor, you’ll need to adjust your settings every time you’re in a new location. Thankfully, the onboard OSD menu is easy to navigate, with three buttons that click clearly when pressed. The menu allows you to adjust the brightness, contrast, color balance, and audio options, so you can easily optimize for different color and lighting conditions.
For charging, the AUZAI utilizes a USB-C to USB Type-A cable and a USB-C to USB-C cable. This can be plugged into any computer or USB charging block. For PCs or tablets, the best wiring option is generally USB Type-C. This will eliminate the need to use the separate charging cable. In addition, it’s designed as a secondary monitor for business or creative work, and it excels at both of those applications.
In terms of the screen using experience, if you’re doing a lot of work in Photoshop, the AUZAI is an excellent choice. The color balance overall is better than we’d usually expect on a monitor of this size and weight. For movies, this monitor is an excellent choice. The AUZAI is significant to be well worth the investment.
