5 of 5 portable and powerful production monitor! April 21, 2021
Reviewer: David Patterson from Bellevue, WA United States  
The compact size and included carry case/sun hood make it very portable. The 10bit display produces accurate colors and sharp images. The monitor has all the necessary exposure and focus features you expect from a professional monitor. I particularly like that the false color feature offers custom presets for different cameras.

A few concerns:

1. The carry case/sun hood design is a nice bonus, but is awkward when sitting on a table. I prefer the earlier style hard travel case with removable panels.

2. The interface buttons are very stiff and require two hands to operate (one to hold the monitor and one to press the buttons). This is further complicated by the case that partially covers them.

3.  If you have a V-mount battery attached, it will continue to drain regardless of these on/off switch positions. I have to physically remove the battery when not using the monitor.

Even with the issues I mention, I would highly recommend this monitor.
