Danny Recommends: Portable Monitor
Every so often we dip our toes into a series called Danny Recommends:, posts that tip you off to the stuff that I…you know. The recommendations might be products for use in your ministry, resources that will help you develop leaders around you, or just fun stuff that you need. Want. Whatever. I have a full list of recommended books and such over at the Reading List, but these posts will go into further detail. For other posts in the series, check out the link at the bottom.
Okay kids, gather ’round the campfire while Uncle Danny tells you perilous tales of first world problems:
I have a hard time working off of a single computer monitor.
Yes, let the criticisms rain down, but I am downright spoiled to a multiple monitor setup. My eyeballs are five decades old, and they benefit from (a) an alternative larger screen than what my laptop provides and (b) the ability to have at least two screens running simultaneously.
And that is all well and good for a permanent home or office setup. But a year and a half ago I stumbled across one of those things-that-I-don’t-need-but-I-must-have, a portable monitor.
Maybe you’ve seen these in the wild: it’s a simple external display with a built-in cover. One cord connects it to your laptop (and it’s powered via that same connection).
Because there are roughly four bajillion models out there now and I’m no expert in pixels or resolutions or volts, I won’t recommend a brand as much as the concept. If you work remotely frequently, you probably don’t need one of these. But you want one.
And if you’re interested, I’ve been using the KYY 15.6″ 1080P model for about 19 months now, and I love it. I’ve had zero issues, it’s lightweight, and the screen is plenty big enough. It goes with me anytime I travel to allow me that office-away-from-the-office setup I’ve gotten
accustomed spoiled to.
Disclaimer: FTC watchdogs will probably want to know that the vendors listed / linked above did not ask for this endorsement, nor did they provide me with free swag in order to do so. I’m just a really satisfied fan who wants to let you know about helpful things. I only promote items that have benefitted me and that I believe will benefit you. So there.
