    $85 + 20 shipping for me. HP EliteDisplay S14. 14" 1080p USB-C monitor that doesn't require an extra power adapter to run. Nice to have another portable monitor on a job.

    HP ELITEDISPLAY S14 14" LED MONITOR FULL HD1080P | eBay

    They're $220 or more normally so this is about half for an open box.

    I don't know why I really need this, or what I'm really going to do with this, but it seems my eBay bucks are getting depleted this afternoon. :eek:

    Says no warranty. Probably guaranteed to have some issues. I was looking for something like this anyway, so I'll probably bite the bullet anyway.

    Edit: Also put in an offer at $75.

    This is nearly $100 cheaper than the next cheapest i can find elsewhere on google. Not a bad deal...

    However, i bring with me a 14 or 15 inch laptop and also carry an HDMI cable so i can use any hotel tv.... i would hate to have to carry another 2 lb in my laptop bag....lol...

    My offer was accepted last night and I paid shortly after. ~$88 total for me because I'm also in TX so shipping was cheap. I'll report on mine when I get it (hopefully Monday). I wish I had a calibration tool so I could check color gamut...

    Likely. I'm hoping that maybe other buyers had issues driving a native USB-C monitor with adapters or something vice the screen being defective. I'll be plugging it directly into my P5520's USB-C port.

    Well, it's not terrible - a similar offering from the GeChic Onlap portable line will cost about 300 USD, but the question is...how many people here uses USB-C as their primary I/O? I don't think that many modern server chassis has a native USB-C port.

    Personally I'm interested in this for a mobile 2 screen development setup. Could also be used with a newer NUC, or if one wanted to get crazy there are some pcie usb-c add-in cards.

    I have always wanted a small travel monitor for my laptop. This was close to my ebay bucks certificate so why not.

    I may prefer that too, but I figured buy this and the most I am out is ~$100 if it is not what I want.

    So mine came in.

    Thoughts:
    • Packaged well. Original HP box included inside a Fedex shipping box, secured to prevent movement.
    • Surprisingly heavy. 1219g on my kitchen scale with folio/kickstand.
    • Speaking of the kickstand, there's only one angle, which is a bit more "reclined" than I prefer at my desk.
    • No dead pixels that I could tell. Did a test here.
    • Backlight looks slightly dimmer at the corners.
    • Picture quality looks pretty good. Matte screen!!!
    • 6' USB-C cable, port is located on the bottom right corner of the screen. Might cause a problem if you want it to sit immediately to the left of your laptop.
    • IPS backlight bleed is significant. Impossible to ignore with a black screen, and present though not obnoxious when watching videos. Not noticeable with web browsing style use though.
    EDIT: For giggles I tried to plug it in with a USB3 -> USB-C cable from a Google Pixel phone. The screen powered on, but there was no video signal. It appears be expecting a DisplayPort connection via USB-C.

    All in all, I'm pretty pleased with the purchase. Here's a pic of it next to my P5520 (pardon the mess).
