    Portable monitors for desktops

    by arosefit7 ·

    I’m not even sure if this is a thing. I have a desktop pc, and instead of having a stationary monitor for it, I’d like something portable that I can take between rooms but still be connected to the desktop. Is this possible? And if so what hardware would work best to accomplish this?

      What would you do with the monitor while being in another room?

      Go get some VESA mount then have your tech or you attach it to the desktop.

        What about using an Android tablet, iPad or smart TV connected via Bluetooth or WiFi interface from the computer ?? The OP could cast (assuming he is using MS Windows) to external devices.

          The more I dislike it. There’s always a reason it didn’t work.

          AFAIK, I’m the only one that showed “video” over Bluetooth over a decade ago. It was not a lot of pixels and was 1 to 5 frames a second. I’ve yet to see that improve.

          Never forget that Bluetooth technology has quickly evolved over just the past few years. May be new products available today that perform better.
