Portable and Wireless are 2 features in tech that are held in high regard. Both offer conveniences that their bulkier and entangled counterparts cannot, all while putting the power of choice in the hands of consumers.
When talking about monitors, the saying “bigger is better” applies most of the time. Real estate is king, especially for gamers and content creators who want to see more of what they do. While ultrawide options have been rising in popularity, portable monitors have also been enjoying their fair share of the spotlight as of late.
Both options are two sides of the same coin, and thanks to the pandemic, we’ve been seeing new use-cases calling not just for portability, but also for the convenience brought about by wireless technology.
