We’ve covered USB monitors here before with the ASUS UFOTO UF735 and Century Japan’s 4.3” monitor. What makes the Nanovision MIMO series LCD monitors different is the display’s feature-set. The 7” Nanovision MIMO display is available in models that include touch-screen support, a 1.3MP webcam, and microphone and headphone jacks.
USB monitors are usually purchased for a specific secondary monitor purpose, such as being able to check your screen content from a location other than directly in front of your main display. The MIMO monitors are also a great way to dedicate space to applications that normally can clutter your desktop. Think of some applications that you mostly use at a glance, like an instant messenger, weather monitoring, movies or music playing, a video conference, and much more.
The monitor uses the USB connection as the power source, which therefore requires one less cable. Starting with UM-710 model, the 700 series is around $129 dollars, which is quite affordable. Supporting an 800×480 resolution, the MIMO can be viewed in many different display modes such as mirror, extended display, and landscape or portrait mode.
