Mimo 7-inch LCD gets reviewed (Verdict: fantastic for coralling all your tiny windows and widgets)
Our good friends over at technabob
have reviewed one of those diminutive Mimo mini-displays that extend your desktop via a simple USB conenction. As I suspected, a few caveats aside, these are pretty great little frame to corral your PhotoShop palletes and desktop widgets:
Overall, I was really impressed with this pint-size monitor. It took just a couple of minutes to get set up, and it looks really great (especially in landscape mode). While you probably wouldn’t trust the color accuracy of the display for image retouching work, it’s more than capable of handling the secondary display usage that it was designed for. And while I wondered about USB’s ability to handle fast-motion data, I managed to play back full-screen video clips on the display with not the slightest stutter.
Caveats include a lack of color correction and some strange weight balancing issues when pivoted, but none sound like a deal breaker. I may have to pick one of these up: while I already have a dual display set-up, another 800 pixels will never go amiss, and I love the idea of a dedicated iTunes CoverFlow display.
