If you want to boost your productivity while working on the go, a portable monitor is an excellent solution. Portable monitors are compact and lightweight displays that can easily be slipped into a backpack, laptop bag, or carry case and used wherever you are. They take up barely any space and often require just a simple USB connection, while offering large benefits for those working in confined spaces or on the go.
We all know the benefits that a monitor can add to your workflow and with a portable one, you can enjoy these benefits from anywhere! Adding a portable monitor to your setup is a no-brainer if you’re a business professional, digital nomad, or entrepreneur who frequently works on the go. Let’s look more closely and break this up into five key reasons why you might want to consider buying a portable monitor.
With a portable monitor, you can enjoy the perks of having a dual-screen setup wherever you are. If you’re used to this setup at your workstation, switching to a single screen when you’re out and about can feel like a real detriment to your productivity, but this can now be an issue of the past. The addition of a portable monitor alongside your laptop screen provides more screen real estate for large workflows and allows you to work on multiple tasks or apps simultaneously, without having to constantly switch between windows. This not only adds efficiency to the way you work, but helps you stay organised and focused, leading to improved productivity.
Expands Mobile Devices
It’s not just laptop users who can benefit from a portable monitor. They also come in handy for anyone working off a tablet or mobile device. Pair the portable monitor with a mobile device, bluetooth keyboard, and some productivity apps, and you can have yourself a portable productivity powerhouse when you need it. If you have a Samsung smartphone, you can use Samsung DeX to enjoy a full laptop experience from the convenience of your phone. Simply turn on Samsung DeX mode, connect it to the portable monitor via a USB-C connection and you’ve got yourself a mini computer!
Presentations and Meetings
If you frequently give presentations or attend meetings, a portable monitor can be extremely useful. You can use it as a secondary display to show slides or notes, making it easier to present and collaborate with colleagues and clients. If you’re a creative professional, it will be a great addition to your client meetings where you need to show pieces of work, concepts and designs to review and discuss.
Preview Monitor for Photo and Video
Speaking of creatives, a portable monitor can also be an awesome sidekick on creative shoots. If you’re a photographer or content creator, you can use a portable monitor to preview your photos and videos back on a full-sized FHD display (as opposed to the small LCD displays on your camera) and get a better idea of how your shots really look. This can help you spot those out of focus shots or wrong camera settings immediately, rather than when you’re behind the screen editing. This can end up saving you time and money that might have been lost to organising a reshoot, as well as a whole lot of frustration.
Flexibility & Convenience
Portable monitors are lightweight and compact, making them easy to carry around. If you're a frequent traveler, you can use a portable monitor to work or entertain yourself on long flights or train rides. Or perhaps you just have a really small space either at home or in the workplace and you can’t fit a full-sized monitor or prefer to keep things minimal. A portable monitor will let you enjoy the perks of a dual-screen setup when you need it and can easily and conveniently be packed away when you don’t.
Life is not always about work and being productive! Sometimes you need to kickback with a good TV show, movie or YouTube video and a full-sized screen always makes it better. A portable monitor is perfect to pair with a smartphone or tablet to enhance entertainment when you’re on a road trip, camping, at a cafe, or even when you’re on a plane. Additionally, if you have a portable gaming console like the Nintendo Switch or Switch Lite, you can also enhance your gaming experience by connecting it to your monitor.
Overall, a portable monitor can be a great investment for anyone who needs more screen space or wants the flexibility to work or game from anywhere. Check out our range of portable monitors here!
