Topic: USB Monitors with VDJ and a "basic" laptop
Plus, it keeps the laptop away from the booze.
Until my external monitor died a few months back, I had a laptop under the roadcase hidden away. I use a micro keyboard and trackball mouse in the roadcase, and an external monitor attached to the top of the case.
I'm thinking of adding the Asus MB169B+ as a USB monitor.
Anyone have any experience with running VDJ via something like this? It's not a touch screen device, but the reviews ay it's not suitable for gaming due to slight delays. Not sure how bad that will be.

It's also USB powered, VESA/tripod mountable and has multiple inputs. They are also available in larger sizes but the 11" suits me just fine.

Is it They're fault your club doesn't have decent security? Is it they're fault you didn't have someone for your private parties? Is it they're fault that some idiot in the 25th row launches a beer bottle at you??
I mean you get what your saying about protecting your equipment but this is not the DJ companies fault.
Call me lucky but I've never had a spill in 12 years!!

The Asus one seems the lightest one on the market, small, priced right and available.

I guess you can try it out and let us know how it works.
The reason I bought the Gechic one is that it has a separate USB power input and also HDMI & DisplayPort connections and you can be guaranteed the best picture irrespective of the power draw.

So, you are saying that you can have you laptop for VDJ, HDMI output to the TVs to the guest, and this monitor on the side for VDJ panels? How do you configure because I was thinking of getting two of these Cinq, but I can"t find them anymore.
I'm looking at this one.
I don't do video, and I'm only looking at this as a replacement for my main laptop screen. I don't need the laptop. In fact my laptop is so out of the way thanks to the USB keyboard and mouse in the roadcase, I might as well just use a small PC. Cheaper, right?
