Packaging and items:

The Lepow Monitor arrived in the mail a few days after ordering.  The monitor was packaged in a slick, white box and came with two cables, a protective screen, and a smart cover.  One of the cables is a Type-C to Type-C and the other cable is HDMI.  The monitor does not have an internal battery, so it does require an outside power source when using.

Aesthetics:

The monitor is stylish with a slick metal frame.  The monitor weights 1.76 pounds with 14 3/8" x 8 3/4" x 3/8" dimensions.  There is a black cover with magnetic edges that hold the cover to the monitor.  On the left side of the monitor there are speakers, and HDMI port, audio jack for headphones and a Type-C port.  The right side of the monitor speakers, a Type-C port, the on/off switch and a lever called a roll key.  The roll key allows the user to control the internal settings such as brightness, sound, language and other settings.

Conclusion:

With a low price of $159.99, the Lepow monitor provides a great value-add for a businessperson who is on the road a lot.  I plan to use the monitor while traveling for business (airports, hotels and coffee shops) and also personal use (gaming, watching movies in bed, etc.).  The only drawback I have is the sound quality.  The speakers do not get as loud as I would prefer.  However, using headphones while using the monitor is a plus.

Stats:

  • Full HD 1080P Display: 1920 x 1080 Screen Resolution
  • Multiple Device Connection: Laptops, PCs, Phones, PS3/4, XBOX One, Wii, Nintendo Switch, etc.
  • Smart Cover/Protection Screen
  • Weight: Only 1.76 pounds with 0.3-inch profile – great for traveling
  • Dual Speakers: 2 built in speakers which is great for games, movies and music.

Disclosure: The company was kind enough to offer the unit in return for an honest review.
