ASUS MB168B+ Review
The laptop, ASUS MB168B+ is 14.9 x 9.26 x 0.26 inches, weighing a paltry 1.6lbs and is thinner and lighter by significant margin than AOC e1659fwu, which is 14.8 x 9.2 x 0.9 inches and 2.4lbs. Even then, unlike the AOC, this laptop lacks the arm. It requires a 1 –lb carrying case of canvas, which folds over to allow for mounting. Once inside its case, this device weighs only 2.6lbs and is 15.25 x 10.75 x 0.7 inches in dimensions.
The MB168B+ from ASUS resembles a premium product quite a lot, with metallic-colored plastic back closely mimicking the lids used on ASUS Ultrabooks. The sides and front are subtle matte plastic and of better class than AOC e1659fwu. Connectors and buttons are positioned to the left of the MB168B+, along with micro USB 3.0 port, power on/off button and brightness rocker. The ASUS laptop has CD-ROM with Multiframe and EZlink software, which enables you manage windows. Just as most USB monitors which are portable, the ASUS MB168B+ is powered by DisplayLink chip. As such EZlink installs either Mac or the Windows DisplayLink drivers for clients.
Just attach monitor onto USB port on the computer, after installing DisplayLink software and it will light up then display for you a second desktop. You can as well adjust the position resolution plus other Windows settings, just like in all secondary monitors. The 26-inch cable for connecting microUSB 3.0 to USB which comes with the MB168B+ is somewhat short and may pop out of your monitor rather easily. It is highly advisable obtaining USB 3.0 Y cable to go along with this ASUS device as it fits much more securely into USB port. Mounting of MB168B+ US monitor becomes a fairly easy practice, after grasping how its case is folded. Fold down flap on canvas case front side, which forms small 2-inch back against which to lean the monitor. Two Velcro strips are available on the case interior, which must be used for holding the monitor front in place.
ASUS MB168B+ offers bright images, wide viewing angles as well as adequate amounts of screen real estate. The laptop delivers a fantastic experience when watching movies in Full HD, having resolution of 1920 x 1080. ASUS MB168B+ USB monitor provides images which are sharp and smooth. Motion is seamless and smooth on PC, whether applying Excel to edit or playing a 1080p video at high frame rate. No complications arise similarly, when a Macbook Air operating OS X Mountain Lion is used for surfing the Web. This device is of light weight, highly portable and delivers to you accurate color, speedy performance and sufficient screen space. There are monitors that are less costly than this one, but its top-class resolution display enables one to experience greater productivity while travelling for instance.
