the Asus Zen­screen is a de­vice that has a very sim­ple yet use­ful func­tion – to ex­tend dis­plays.

Ex­ud­ing a pre­mium look on the out­side, this por­ta­ble mon­i­tor from ASUS flaunts a 15.6-inch wide-screen IPS dis­play in Full HD (1920 x 1080p) res­o­lu­tion and 16:9 ra­tio. Its flicker-free screen de­liv­ers out­stand­ing per­for­mance through its vi­brant color re­pro­duc­tion.

the Asus Zen­screen has an al­most-ab­sent 6.5mm bezel which makes the screen look even wider. It has a neatly-placed usb type-c port on the left, and con­trol but­tons for the power and on-screen dis­play (OSD) set­tings at the bot­tom part. the Zen­screen is also equipped with a four-level Blue Light Fil­ter to pro­tect the eyes from hurt­ing due to long screen ex­po­sure. It comes with com­plete ac­ces­sories in­clud­ing an Asus smart case, usb-c to usb-c con­nec­tor, usb type-c to A adapter, and a Zen­screen pen.

users can also eas­ily tweak the mon­i­tor’s set­tings and ac­ti­vate its trace Free and Vivid­pixel features, as well as the splen­did video pre­set modes us­ing the Asus Zen­screen’s OSD.

the Asus Zen­screen ap­peals to those who’d want the luxury of a multi-screen setup – which pretty much ap­plies only to desk­top PCS or to lap­tops si­t­u­ated on top of of­fice desks – while on-the-go. Its wide IPS dis­play is also ideal to peo­ple who al­ways work with of­fice pre­sen­ta­tions. Aside from the seam­less in­stal­la­tion which can be done by just con­nect­ing the de­vice to a lap­top through the usb type-c ca­ble, the Asus Zen­screen is also easy to carry with its 8mm-thick and 780g-heavy form fac­tor. this is prob­a­bly be­cause it doesn’t have an in­te­grated bat­tery, thus, it only works when plugged to a host de­vice. us­ing the screen with a lap­top that has a type-c port is also rec­om­mended for seam­less, plug-and-play use, be­cause uti­liz­ing it with the usb type A con­nec­tor re­quires an in­stalled Dis­playlink driver.

As men­tioned ear­lier, the Asus Zen­screen pack­age comes with a mag­netic cover to pro­tect the screen from bumps and scratches which can be con­verted as a stand. An­other op­tion for this is through the Asus Zen­screen pen – or just any other pen – which can sup­port the Asus Zen­screen in land­scape and por­trait mode when in­serted to a small hole si­t­u­ated at the bot­tom right part of the de­vice. take note that the Asus Zen­screen pen is just an or­di­nary pen and doesn’t work as a sty­lus since the Asus Zen­screen doesn’t sup­port a touch­screen fea­ture.

Por­ta­ble and ver­sa­tile, the Asus Zen­screen is an apt buddy to boost pro­duc­tiv­ity.
