With a slim 8mm profile and weighing just 800g, the mercury-free LED-backlit display consumes just 5W during active use and 0W in standby mode. Available in Full HD 1,920 x 1,080 and 1,366 x 768 resolutions, both power and video signal are supplied over a single USB 3.0 cable, removing the need to carry a bulky power adapter and video cable.

Both models require just a single USB 3.0 connection for the video signal and power. The high bandwidth USB 3.0 delivers faster signal transmissions to ensure a lag-free viewing experience. The MB168 Series is also backward compatible with USB 2.0 ports, with only a slight difference in display brightness.

Featuring the ASUS EzLink technology that offloads graphics processing from the PC to dedicated hardware in the monitor, a PC or notebook can drive up to five MB168 Series monitors at the same time, regardless of its own graphics capability - it just requires enough USB ports. EzLink senses ambient light levels and adjusts monitor brightness accordingly, and automatically rotates the image between landscape and portrait modes, as required.

Sporting a durable finish with a fine pattern of concentric circles, the MB168 Series complements the ASUS Zenbook Ultrabook, and ships with a protective carry case which doubles as an adjustable stand for tabletop use.

The MB168 Series Portable USB-powered Monitor is available starting today at S$319.
