Product Overview One Cable Does the Job
15.6-inch Full HD display with a single USB 3.0 cable for power and data transmission.

Sleek and Ultra-portable
World’s slimmest and lightest USB monitors with a metallic finish.

Adjusting to Your Needs
Auto-rotating display bundled with the ASUS Smart Case – a two-way adjustable stand and protective sleeve.

The 15.6-inch MB169B+ portable USB-powered monitor needs just one USB cable for both its video signal and power to deliver up to a Full HD resolution. Thanks to the higher bandwidth of USB 3.0, experience fast, fluid images from your connected device that makes having an on-the-go multi-display setup a reality. What’s more, the MB169B+ is backwards compatible with a notebook or desktop PC USB 2.0 port.

With a slim 8.5 mm (0.3-inch) profile and tipping the scales at just 800g (1.76 pounds), the MB169B+ is the world’s slimmest and lightest companion display, ideal for a simple on-the-go dual-monitor setup and mobile presentations.

A durable metallic finish with a fine pattern of concentric circles makes the MB169B+ the perfect complement to your notebook. And for added durability, it comes with a protective carrying case that doubles as an adjustable stand for tabletop use.

Adjusting to your needs
The MB169B+ with Auto Rotate (patent-pending) can automatically sense its orientation and switches the display between landscape and portrait based on its position; also, featuring IPS panel ensures a better viewing angle and nearly no color shift promise. These features provide you a more user-friendly scenario.

Increased productivity with ASUS EzLink technology
The MB169B+ features ASUS EzLink technology that offloads graphics processing from the PC to dedicated hardware in the monitor. As a result, a PC can drive up to five MB169B+ monitors at the same time, regardless of its own graphics capability — it just needs sufficient USB ports. EzLink also automatically restores application window positions as a MB169B+ monitor is connected and disconnected, and automatically rotates the image between landscape and portrait modes, as required.

Choosing a monitor is not an easy decision to make, and not just because of the large number of variations in resolution, refresh rates, sizes and connectivity options. There are also varying panel technologies used to form each display that need to be considered. These panel technologies can be grouped into three broad categories which cover the vast majority of monitors sold in the consumer market.

NVIDIA G-Sync
NVIDIA G-Sync
Date Issued: 17th Dec 2013

G-SYNC works in a surprisingly simple way - it calculates how long the present frame takes to compute and then, crucially, varies the refresh rate of the monitor to match. It works between a minimum of 33.3ms (30fps) and the maximum supported refresh of the display. The key takeaway here is that the graphics card and monitor are both synced up to one another - the monitor doesn't have the limitations imposed by a rigid, fixed-rate scanning routine.

Date Issued: 21st Oct 2008

Now shipping with all but the cheapest complete PCs are LCD monitors. Advances in display manufacturing and associated cost reductions with economies of scale have brought LCD monitors into the mainstream, shipping with budget systems that start at just £400. LCD monitors come in all shapes and sizes, have differing resolutions and inputs. The purpose of this TekSpek is to provide a basic understanding of how LCDs work, delineate their desirable features, and to offer basic buying advice.

As you’ll all likely know by now, DVI is the current standard for connection of a PC or other display generator to a digital display output. You’ll recognise the multi-pin connector and know that almost all modern LCD displays have the corresponding input connector, for feeding from your PC. But do you know how DVI works? This TekSpek seeks to teach you how.

HDTV 720/1080
Date Issued: 14th Jun 2008

Whether the broadcasters are going HD or not, TV sets and projectors are arriving thick and fast which claim to support higher resolutions than regular telly. But HDTV is far from just one standard – it incorporates a couple of different resolutions, two different scanning modes, and a number of different frame rates. In this article, we present a guide to what all the terms actually mean.

Date Issued: 14th Jun 2008

There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution. With more than one type of connection available, and the thorny subject of signal encryption to contend with, just because your monitor and graphics are capable of 1,920 x 1,080 or better does not necessarily mean they will be able to display HDTV in all its glory.

Reviews
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Useful device - if it meets your needs This device (Asus MB169B+) is the most recent incarnation of Asus' portable monitor. It is very thin and very light, but feels strong and rigid. The only connector is a USB3 micro-B socket which receives both power and video data from your PC - Asus supply a suitable connecting cable. Embedded in the device is a DisplayLink chip which converts the USB data into video. To use it, just install the software from the accompanying CD or download the latest version of the generic software from the DisplayLink website. Windows sees the device as a standard monitor, so you can extend and mirror your display exactly as you would with a conventional second monitor. You can set the device as the main monitor and if you are adventurous you can even use it as the only monitor, in which case you won't see anything until Windows first displays the desktop. DisplayLink claim that their chip is very light on PC resources - I have seen nothing to dispute this claim. In use, the display is not very bright (only 200 cd/m2, 250 is the norm) and looks rather dull and feeble alongside a conventional monitor, but it is bright enough for all uses I have tried. It did very well with a high-res Bluray video, good colours and smooth, fluid motion - note that there is NO sound capability though. The monitor comes with a folio case which can be converted into a stand; to me, the stand felt like a lash-up, I would want to support an expensive device like this on something a bit sturdier. Scan doesn't appear to sell anything suitable. Too much computing equipment in the lounge does not go down well in my household. This monitor, a small keyboard with trackpad and a PC hidden behind the sofa meets with official approval and makes the rather steep price worthwhile. 19 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by WOW - A basic idea done well Scan managed to handle my order well (as normal), with the slight issue that this product seems to be listed more than once with different availability status, but I can cope with such issues. As for the product, I was expecting a working solution from ASUS, but I did not expect such a high quality solution. Rather than use the CD I down loaded the drivers from the internet to get the latest versions and everything just worked. My laptop is a TN based unit running at 1366x768 with an AMD A8 processor. So this additional screen is a great addition. Even the basic power of my A8 processor can do full screen youtube videos at about 50% load across the USB 3 link. All in all the build, software and results are far better than I expected. Just one thing you need to be aware of is that at the time of writing there are no Win10 drivers, which for myself is not an issue as I long since moved back from 8.1 to 7, but it maybe an issue for others. 05 September 2015
