Dell has recently announced a brand new monitor, the 14-inch C1422H. Now, many would scoff at 14-inches since these days it’s not that hard to find a monitor around 27-inches that won’t break the bank, but chances are these aren’t the customers that Dell is targeting with this new monitor.
Instead, the company has positioned this monitor as being a portable monitor, so if for whatever reason you might need a portable secondary display when you’re out working on a laptop, this could be it. Priced at $350, it’s not exactly cheap. It features a Full HD IPS display with a 16:9 aspect ratio and comes with a built-in tilt stand that lets you adjust the angle of viewing.
It connects to a computer, either laptop or desktop, via USB-C. What this means is that you don’t need to find an external source to power the monitor as it can be powered through USB-C, plus there is also no need for a display cable like HDMI since that can be accomplished over USB-C as well.
The monitor’s peak brightness is at 300 nits and weighs just under two pounds. Given its size and weight, you should be able to slip it inside of a bag that can also fit your laptop, so if you ever need a secondary display when you’re out in the field, maybe this could be worth checking out.
