What is it?

A portable HD monitor designed for busy people on the move.

Good points?

Lenovo has engineered the ThinkVision M14 to be as easy to transport as possible. Measuring 14 inches (36cm) and weighing in at only 570g it is far from cumbersome to tote around in a rucksack.

Picture quality is great thanks to its FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS display which provides sharp detail and vibrant colour distribution.

Traditional monitors require separate power and display cables, but this screen utilises a single USB-C cable to receive the power and data connection from the controlling device such as a laptop or PC.

Lenovo has also enabled power passthrough on both USB-C ports so you can simultaneously charge your laptop and use the portable display even if you only have one port available.

The monitor kickstand can tilt between angles of minus five and 90 degrees which allows you to find the most comfortable visual position. This flexibility is ideal for small group presentations as you can mirror your main display and have it shown on two sides of a table at once.

Bad points?

As the device lacks bulk, the controlling buttons are tiny and fiddly to operate especially for those with thicker fingers.

The options to adjust the display are limited to brightness and blue light settings which will potentially hinder digital creators who prefer to colour calibrate their outputs.

Best for ...

Those who travel with their computer or have minimal space for a full second monitor when home working.
