The Mimo Monitors Magic Deluxe is the world’s first USB driven touch screen monitor. From the start it was easy to set up, you download the driver and off you go, the 1024x600 resolution produces a vibrant and sharp picture. The 10.1” screen is small enough to be portable but it’s still a comfortable size to work with, I struggled when I was doing really fiddly work like editing photos through Photoshop but for normal day to day use it was fine. The capacitive multi-touch touchscreen is extremely sensitive and smooth, there’s no frustrating over tapping or delayed response. The Magic Deluxe is fully compatible with Windows 7/8/8.1/10, Linux and Mac OS X (with purchase of Mac touchscreen driver) and the screen can also be removed and used independently, as a tethered tablet or mounted (VESA 75) screen.
The power and video is from a single USB cable and It comes with a USB which is designed to be used at close range but there is also available a USB extender through Mimo Monitors if required that uses power over twisted pair to power the remote side from the source side so you won’t need a to route AC power. The Magic Deluxe is a little touch of magic and a real forward step in technology that makes a user friendly operating system even more readily available within the home or work place. RRP $329.99
