ViewSonic Opens A New Era of Gaming with the Innovative VX1755 Portable Gaming Monitor

ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solutions, reveals the new VX1755 monitor - a trailblazing portable gaming screen. Built to maximize mobility without losing any gaming opportunity, this slim, compact monitor enhances mobile, PC, and console gaming even on the move. It is the ideal companion for gamers to expand their gaming experience or achieve a two-screen desk setup.

"This is an increasingly mobile world where people require more portable devices to connect, work, and play. ViewSonic's range of portable monitors are designed to elevate every aspect of a person's life, and we will continue to develop innovative solutions to accommodate the changing lifestyles of our customers," said Oscar Lin, General Manager of the Monitor Business at ViewSonic. "We are excited to launch our first portable gaming monitor which gives gamers more ways to play wherever they are."
Cut with sublime, clean lines, the 17.3" VX1755 portable gaming monitor has a slim 0.6-inch profile weighing at less than 1 kg - making it lightweight and compact to fit in most travel bags and carry-ons. For those who love playing on the Nintendo Switch or bingeing their favorite TV series on their mobile phones, the native 1080p panel's intuitive built-in kickstand can also be adjusted from 0 to 62 degrees, and it automatically orientates the screen to best present the content. Offering users additional screen real-estate for an immersive visual experience.

Packed with two USB Type-C ports built with two-way power delivery, the VX1755 lets gamers use one to connect a wide variety of peripherals and the other to supply power. The monitor also features mini-HDMI connectivity and a 3.5 mm headphone jack, turning any space into a mini home theater with a simple hookup to a mobile phone.

Engineered with a superbly fast refresh rate of 144 Hz, 4 ms response time, and AMD FreeSync Premium technology, players can expect silky-smooth and lag-free visuals in fast-paced games - giving them a greater advantage in first-person shooters, racing, or real-time strategy titles. Integrated with a pair of front-facing speakers, every sound is directed straight at the user for a clearer audio experience.

The versatility and portability of the VX1755 open up more ways for users to expand their desk setups and fully experience work, study, or game no matter where they are. It joins ViewSonic's range of portable devices, such as the 16" TD1655, 16" VG1655, and 16" VA1655, which are designed to overcome one-screen and location limitations.

It isn't clear, does this have an internal battery or do you need to invoke the spaghetti triangle where you have a mains double wall socket, your device, this screen, and cables between all three?

It sounds like it doesn't have a battery, but it can pass through USB-C power from the display.

That implies that either a laptop could power it via USB-C, or power being fed to the display can also feed back to the laptop. Kind of like how my TB3 displays can charge my laptop. So I read that as two cables. One is always between the laptop and the display, the other is power attached to either device to power both of them.

What would it use BT for?


This looks pretty nice, but I'm curious about pricing. Hopefully it's significantly lower than Asus' (admittedly great, but) crazy expensive options.

Audio mainly, gaming, even if its Candy Crush (*cringe*). I may have missed if it was touch screen too.

I used to use an external speaker cuz it would sound better than the Iphone. Easier to mover the speaker around while keeping the Iphone chained to the wall plug.

Ah, that makes sense. Though I would assume the built-in speakers are pretty crap, and host devices should still be able to use BT audio, so that should still work. Not the simplest setup though!

What's the purpose of BT when you have a USB-C connection which could carry audio for you? BT doesn't have a lot of bandwidth so it's not like you're sending video over it, so I don't see it being super useful for this use case. You need a real WiFi connection for something like WiDi or Miracast.

I didnt say video. USB-C is not as portable as BT, sure you can drag your phone around with this device, but the question is: Why? When you dont have to be chained to a cord. I'd prefer Wifi too.

USB-C is gaining a lot of adoption for more modern devices. Also, it's a monitor, so not being able to display video on a display is... well useless. BT simply doesn't have the bandwidth to drive a display which is why I don't see the purpose of it.
