Review WIMAXIT Portable Touch Monitor / Display – 13.3″ IPS 1080p USB powered


hey everybody its lines I’ve been and I’ve been getting a lot of interest from viewers on portable displays and we got another one in to take a look at this one is called the whim exit kind of a generic brand but what’s cool about this one is that it’s a touch display that is powered by USB and it’s got a regular HDMI input on it so in addition to connecting it up to computers you could conceivably connect game consoles and other things to it as well so we’re going to be taking a closer look at this one in just a second but I do want to let you know in the interest of full disclosure that this came in free of charge from what I believe is whim exit all the opinions are about to here are my own nobody is paying for this review nor is anyone reviewing or approving what you’re about to see before it was uploaded so let’s get into it now and see what this display is all about so let’s take a closer look now at the hardware this has got a 13.3 inch 1080p IPS touch display it’s got a matte finish to it so it’s not all that shiny and the image quality is actually pretty nice on this it looks a little washed out on camera but in person it looks pretty decent I think the touch layer here might be interacting with my studio lights this is though a little on the pricier side for a generic product ayuh costs about 249 dollars on Amazon at the time that I’m recording this video and this is going to be one of those products that I recommend you buy at your own risk because this is not a known brand they’re based out of China you do have some protection through Amazon if you were to buy it through there but just be advised if something might

happen to this a year or so out you may not get support on it but overall the quality here feels decent enough for me to at least recommend it enough to make a video about it now this has a interesting connection strategy here so on the side you have two USB type-c ports this bottom one which I’m currently connected to is hooked up to this little mini PC back here this port is delivering power and it’s also allowing the touch display to work via that USB port there the upper port here they say is just for power and to be honest I don’t know why they separated these things out like this because even though my Mac doesn’t support the touch display the Mac was able to power it through that lower port but there you go if you have some compatibility issue just plug in the power to the top port there and you will be off and running there is an HDMI connector here below the power port this is required so you’ll remember we looked at the Asus Zen display which is a 15.6 inch display a few months ago that one allowed a single USBC connection for power and video this one uses HDMI which means you could again connect up a game console or just about any HDMI device to it so it might be a little more flexible that way it’s got an aluminum case here it looks like plastic on camera but it’s definitely metal so it feels pretty solid and sturdy the entire apparatus here weighs about two pounds and that’s about 907 grams and it comes with its own cover here so you can carry it

around with a little bit of protection as you go the display itself is screwed into the back of the case but you can take it out and mount it on a VESA mount if you want to do something like that as well so there’s some flexibility as to how you mount it and how you might use it like the Zen display they also included a little pen notch here so you can put a pen in to better stabilize it and kind of use the pen like a stand if you want to do something like that it is a ten point touch display and there’s a great free app on the Windows app store called display tester and I was able to test how many display points it has by loading up its little display test here and you can see we’ve got 10 points being tracked right now on-screen and when I take my hand away I’ve got five left and I can even do two fingers here so all the windows 10 functions that that use these 10 points of data input can work on this thing pretty well so scrolling and zooming and all that kind of stuff will work on this display just like it might on your laptop with a touch display so that was nice to see and as I mentioned the touch display does not work on the Mac but I did boot up and Mbutu on that mini PC and I was able to do some basic touch functionality there the pinch to zoom didn’t work but it basically mimicked a mouse so there’s some limited Linux compatibility here at least from what I’ve seen but overall the touch on Windows seems to work as a fully functional Windows touch display we also measure the amount of power it requires because I was curious about that it draws less than an amp at five volts so it should work on just about

any USB port you plug it into and so far as power is concerned now is very surprised by how bright this display appears to me especially for a USB powered device they’re rating this one at 350 nits and I can tell you this from looking at it that it is brighter than the asu’s end screen we looked at a few months back now in fairness the Zen screen is a larger display at 15 inches versus only 13 here so the certainly more surface area to light up with that ASIS but if you were concerned about USB displays because they’re just not bright enough this one might be good enough it may not be as bright as the native display on your laptop but again for a minimally powered device here it’s adequately bright for the job now as I mentioned this does have an HDMI port built-in so you can connect up a game console like my switch here that’s what I have right now is the display connected up to the switch dock via USB and of course the HDMI from the switch dock is going in so we’ll connect up my console here and let everything come to life it just takes a second for it to reboot itself and in a second we should see there we go so we can go back into my game of dead cells here for example and continue playing this does support up to 60 Hertz so your PlayStation 4 and your Xbox one should work at their full frame rates here again up to 1080p as well and it seems to work just as well with game consoles as it does with computers and we also measure the

input latency of the display because many displays differ in how quickly your inputs are registered on screen so our baseline is my gaming PC with a 144 Hertz monitor and an Xbox one controller connected up via USB that gets 44 milliseconds of latency between a button push and a response on-screen this one came in at 80 milliseconds and our methodology is that we record the screen at 240 frames per second on my iPhone and then count how many frames it takes for that input to get registered altogether not bad for a portable display here and I think very usable for gamers but if you are very very sensitive to input latency this will be a little bit more than a gaming display might be now there are some speakers built into this but they are not very good they’re very very tinny but they’re there if you want to have something when you’re out in the field to listen to stuff there’s also a headphone jack here at the bottom so you can plug headphones in for a slightly better audio experience my biggest gripe though are with these buttons on the side they are not labeled you have to refer to the instructions to know what they do there are some basic display settings that you can access if you get the right button pushed here to get into those menus and I’m always not getting it right on this thing so it’s a little tricky it probably should refer to the instructions to get an idea as to exactly what each button does but you can do some basic color and contrast controls in here nothing all that crazy here so altogether it’s a pretty decent display I think for the price point it’s competitive with other USB displays but you have

that flexibility of the HDMI along with the touch controls and as we saw it is a full 10-point touch display at least when you’re using Windows and the flexibility of the USB power here is such that you can even hook up a battery if you want like one of these backup batteries and be able to power your display on the road it doesn’t draw all that much power so this might be useful for video creators and others too so altogether I think it’s a pretty decent value I’m just a little hesitant based on the fact that I don’t know the brand all that well so if something again happens down the road you might be stuck with the display and the price you paid for it without it actually providing any function but hopefully they will be good to their customers the seller on Amazon that sells these has been around for at least a year so that gives me some a bit of comfort but again it’s not a name-brand and the company is based in China but if you’re comfortable with that and looking for a decent little USBC display I was pretty pleased with this one and surprised by how functional and how well it works until next time this is Lance Ivan thanks for watching this channel is brought to you by the lon TV supporters including gold-level supporters Chris Allegretto the four guys with quarters podcast Tom Albrecht Gerard Newberg and Kellyanne Kumar if you want to help the channel you can by contributing as little as a dollar a month head over to LAN TV slash support to learn more and don’t forget to subscribe
