Here is our review of the WIMAXIT 14 Inch Portable Monitor.
Product purchased at retail.
Very few known monitor brands make small, light portable monitors. ASUS is really the only brand I know of that has entered this space. I picked up this small monitor from WIMAXIT with some trepidation inspired by good reviews. Thankfully, it lives up to expectations.

Features and thoughts about the WIMAXIT 14 Inch Portable Monitor
The slab is just 0.9mm thick with squared edges and a flat back. The body of the screen is metal and feels sturdy, which is nice, especially for something that is designed to be portable. The folio case magnetically attaches, protecting the screen in transit and doubling as a slightly adjustable stand when opened. It isn’t the best at holding the position, and I knocked it on more than one occasion. It does the job though.
The screen itself is a 14-inch, touchscreen IPS panel with a 300-nit brightness and 60 Hz refresh rate. The panel represents colour well with nice dark shadows and a good vibrancy from multiple angles as you would expect from an IPS panel. The literature boasts a 98% sRGB colour gamut. 1080p at this size is perfect in terms of size and sharpness. The touchscreen is responsive and seems to work out of the box with all the devices I tried. The screen literature states that the touch function will not work on Mac OS. The screen has the following viewing angles:
- 85 ° / 85 ° (L / R )
- 85 ° / 85 ° (U / D)
The IO for the screen is nicely varied. There are two USB-C ports, a micro-HDMI, and a 3.5mm jack. In addition, the side of the screen has a rocker control and power button. The menu is easily selected with mode options like ‘Game’ and ‘Movie’ which sets the brightness and contrast profiles as you would expect. You also use this system to control things like screen brightness and volume. I found myself setting it to ‘game’ mode and leaving it on that for the most pleasing image quality.
The WIMAXIT 14 Inch Portable Monitor is designed to work with a multitude of devices and in my testing, it paired well with both my laptop and phone. In the case of the phone, it will mirror screen orientation as well as resize appropriately.

Summary of the WIMAXIT 14 Inch Portable Monitor
The WIMAXIT 14 Inch Portable Monitor is surprisingly good. It’s well-built with a premium metal finish with a multitude of connectivity options. It’s truly portable as it will work with just one cable which, when using the magnetic case as a stand is fantastic. A bonus is that the monitor can be VESA mounted making it the perfect addition to a multiple-monitor setup. The IPS screen is fantastically calibrated, and while I don’t have the equipment to verify the sRGB rating the colours were vibrant and seemed to match with my other screens. All-in-all, for an unknown brand, this is a fantastic choice if you’re in the market for a portable monitor.
