Portable USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 monitors are not new, but one that is IPS, 240hz, and fairly color accurate is pretty new! Let's see what James thinks of the ASUS XG17 monitor.

  • I'm a Global Engineering Manager, so I travel a lot. Most of the time I work on a high specsomeone that travels a lot and wants to stay light. But when you get to the hotel, and you know you going to be there for a week or two then a monitor you can bring with you really helps. I looked at the 15" portable monitors, be decided to go with the 17" monitor just to be a little more comfortable. I have two complaints about the 17" portable monitor: 1. The speakers are pointless. 2. Asus should have made the screen HDR compatible, even if it was just HDR 500. They targeted the wrong market. Professional need this, more than gamers need this.

  • I love this, i hope more monitors move in the direction of thinner and lighter, makes no sense how an ipad has a high resolution and 120hz refresh rate display and is as thin as a few sheets of paper AND has an entire system inside while a simple 1080p 60hz monitor is fat and chunky with a built in or external power supply

  • On Amazon Germany the previous model cost just 200€ (233.48US$/310CAD) so for anyone who doesn’t need these high refresh rate. There is a pretty deal.

  • I bought it like two months ago. Is it worth it? Yes it is. After hitting homeoffice this thing has been lifesaver - giving extra on that Lenovo 14". And in the end of the day I can stash it away. Try stashing 22" "normal" monitor. It is portable. I can work with it outside for 4 hours. I can pop it out on a bus / train or long trip plane. By the way you can hook it up to your usb c smartphone - watch your series or movies. Want to go to lanparty? Grab that small HTPC from TV and you are good to go. All in all I got to agree it is on a pricey side.

  • I'd definitely consider something like this for a low profile second screen with desktop. It's just that 240Hz is unnecessary to me. If they make a 90-144 Hz display and charge a little less, I'd totally be onboard.
