DisplayLink pioneered a new category with its video USB technology -- the portable monitor. The timing for easy-to-use USB monitors is ideal for the growing number of mobile workers, who can boost productivity and standout during presentations with additional screen real estate.

If you've been looking for the perfect portable monitor, Laptop Magazine has found a winner in the new DisplayLink-enabled Lenovo ThinkVision LT1421. Combining Lenovo's devotion to quality hardware and DisplayLink's powerful USB video technology, it's not hard to see why it grabbed the magazine's Editors' Choice Award.

"This year, we've seen a couple of vendors rise to the challenge by releasing portable USB monitors that can fit right in your notebook bag. Lenovo's 14-inch ThinkVision T1421 ($199) is clearly the best of these portable displays, with wide viewing angles, great image quality, and the ability to transfer power and data over a single USB connection."
