Lenovo’s USB Widescreen Monitor
- Designed for portability
- Can be used as second screen
- Compatible with any Windows-based PC
Lenovo has announced what it claims to be the industry’s first widescreen USB monitor, the ThinkVision LT1421.
Designed for portability and on the go, it has a lightweight and slim design, with a 14-inch LED screen and one USB cable for plug-and-play connection.
This unit is said to be designed to help mobile professionals share information quickly and easily while on-the-go. Weighing 835g, and starting at 9.33mm thin, it can be carried along with a notebook in a carry case. The USB screen is compatible with any Windows-based PC including notebooks, desktops, workstations and servers. It also comes with a hard case to protect the screen when in transit.
It is claimed that the product’s power consumption is at 69 percent better than the Energy Star standard. It is also mercury free, is made from 65 percent recycled plastic (PCC), and has achieved EPEAT Gold and ULE Gold ratings. The LT1421 can be powered by the user’s PC battery via the USB 2.0 cable. As long as the PC has power the USB display will continue operating.
The screen is capable of 12 to 40 degree tilt for different screen angles, and has 16-level brightness, so the monitor can be used in various environments, and rubber feet to prevent slipping.
It is also designed with features, such as automatic resolution detection and display mode setup, to provide enhanced ease-of-use for customers on-the-go. The product comes with a three year warranty.
