The lack of DisplayPort connection is a bit of a downer especially since other monitors priced at the same level has it. We are also not fond of the black shiny plastic and that we cannot change the angle of the screen more than a little.

As for the special features of this monitor, the MHL-HDMI and Miracast-support,they do work although maybe not as good as we would have hoped. MHL-HDMI works fine so there we have no complaints.

Miracast still works for presentations but you will get a slightly less vidvid and less sharp image.

We have not found a price of this monitor in the US yet but in Europe that price is around €239/£190 which is pretty expensive compared to the competition. It all depends how important the Miracast and MHL-HDMI-support is if you think it is worth it.

While both Apple TV and to some extend Google Chromecast offers ways to mirror the screen on supported devices or at least stream some content they both requier extra hardware. There is however another solution: Miracast. Most Android devices and now also Windows 8.1 support Miracast meaning that you should be able to mirror the screen from many devices. To do that you still need a Miracast-enabled screen and this is where…
