- ASUS ZenScreen Touch MB16AMT
The style of the portable monitor is reminiscent of a tablet, and in many ways it is similar to the ZenPad . This new peripheral will (obviously) have a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS touchscreen display on the front . Fortunately, the company managed to keep some really thin bezels in the product, with the power button and the navigation button at the bottom.
The navigation button functions as an analog stick for directional input. On the left side, in addition to the speaker grill, we find the micro HDMI input and the USB-C port . On the right side instead we find only a large speaker grill and the words “ Designed by ASUS in Taiwan “.
The case is magnetic, easily attaches to the monitor without any worry that it may fall. Thanks to this case, the device can be used at three different angles, as well as leaving it classically “flat”.
The design of this monitor is not bad, to the sight and touch the materials used are of excellent workmanship and the simple and clean lines exactly resemble those of the new tablets, therefore satisfying for end users.
While you might think that a portable monitor might be a footprint, the ASUS ZenScreen Touch MB16AMT is actually not. This new device is easy to use and, compatible with hybrid signals, can be charged and connected via the USB port and the Micro HDMI port only .
Obviously you can also use the USB-C to USB-A adapter already included in the box, even if you will have to download the driver from the official website of the parent company.
