When it comes to portable monitors, the Lepow Z1-Gamut does fit the bill. When used as a secondary monitor for a mobile workstation, the lightness and ease of setup out of the box remained desirable. The Lepow does not take up much desk real estate and can be easily placed next to a laptop when a second monitor is needed. If you are one of those lucky enough to work from home and are issued a company laptop but want more monitor space without having a monitor take up much space, the Lepow Z1-Gamut Portable Monitor with its 15.6″ display area will work nicely. If your laptop handles providing power to an external display, the Z1-Gamut can make use of that, helping you also reduce the number of cables needed. The beauty of USB Type-C not only provides display output but also provides power when needed.
Throughout the past couple of weeks, the Lepow Z1-Gamut Portable Monitor was welcomed when a second display was needed for the work-at-home requirement. The 15.6″ display matches that of the Dell XPS 15 that it was paired with. Using one cable and not having to find a power bar to supply additional power was also a highlight. The lack of portrait viewing support was a bit of a downside, but chances are most people will not use this monitor in a portrait setting.
The Lepow Z1-Gamut 15.6″ portable monitor, offers easy connectivity options for multiple devices, is light-weight and easy to take with you on the road if ever had the need. With the portability, clarity and ease-of-setup, the Lepow Z1-Gamut portable Monitor receives an 8 out of 10 score.
