I’m not quite sure why we rarely see similar products on the market, but it’s clear that the demand is there. Beyond any doubt, a second monitor can drastically speed up your video editing workflow as well as boost your productivity tremendously whether you’re working in the studio or on the go. And, here’s the contradiction – having a conventional monitor as a second display while traveling a lot is everything but a practical solution, so no wonder that the majority of creative professionals prefer the comfort of the editing bay instead. So, could a product like the GeChic 1303H 13.3″ 1080p Portable Monitor change all of that? Well, it’s hard to tell, but before you answer that question for yourself and set this product of totally unknown brand aside, take a look at the quick overview of Unbox Therapy below first.

The monitor also comes with a cover that protects the screen when placed in a laptop bag.
What’s more, the GeChic 1303H stacks up surprisingly well to a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display which should be more than enough for most creative applications as well. And the best part is that it’s relatively affordable device, especially when you compare it to other similar solutions like iPads or other portable displays. The obvious advantage of the monitor, however, is the availability of HDMI, VGA and Mini Display ports which gives you a plenty of options to connect your laptop without experiencing annoying lags or other flaws associated with USB connected displays.
