  1. Thank you for the video. Quick question: Assuming the built-in battery is dead, if I connect this monitor to my laptop using USB-C, will it power up & display a signal? In other words, when connected to a laptop using a USB-C port that supports DisplayPort, can the USB-C connection be used for power & video signal simultaneously irrespective of whether the display's battery is dead?

  2. $400 only??? buy 3 and place it in your 7 series S class A7 A8 Rolls Royce Bentley Maserati Aston martin … the 6-7 digit $ cars come with shit screen thats not even over 75hz .

  3. I don't understand the point of this, almost everything capable of using this to it's full potential is far from portable or has a display already built into it (gaming laptop). It is honestly a stupid product at this point in time, may I say too ahead of its time.

  4. hats off the dumbest product on the planet like seriously asus? wtf portable monitor to play mobile games that too 240hz? hardly any mobile game runs over 60fps so whats the point of 240hz, could you please try to explain this … as of 2019 even rtx 2080 hardly manages to run games on 240fps let alone the mobile games trying to even reach 100 dumb af

  5. Not to ruin the hype but high refresh rate monitors are usually for competitive scene. People who plays fps game for competitive are the one that always craves for this. Targeting to pubg mobile is kinda gimmick..
