Review Wimaxit 15.6″ Portable Display – Switch, PC with Touch, mobile, HDMI, USB-C


hey everybody a flaw in Seidman and we’re taking a look today at a portable display from whim exit we looked at one of their other ones a few months ago this one’s kind of neat though because it has essentially a USB type-c hub built in and it works with the Nintendo switch the switch right now thinks it is docked but it is in fact just plugged into the display in addition to the switch you can plug in your USB type-c equipped computers and tablets in many cases you only need a single USBC cable to get it to work and it also has HDMI inputs on it as well cost about two hundred and eighty nine dollars as you see it so a lot of compatibility here which is not something we typically see with a portable display so we’re going to be taking a closer look at it in just a second with some quirks that you might run into along the way including why I’m using a stand with it now I do want to let you know in the interest of full disclosure if this came in free of charge from whim except however all the opinions you’re about to hear are my own nobody is paying for this review nor has anyone reviewed or approve what you’re about to see before it was uploaded so let’s get into it now and take a look at what this display is all about so let’s take a closer look now at the hardware this is a 15.6 inch display IPS it runs at 1080p at 60 frames per second so it should work well with computers and game consoles and video players and whatnot one thing to note though with these USB powered displays is that they are not all that bright this one isn’t bad it’s a little brighter than the Zen screen but it will be noticeably dimmer than what your laptop may have built in just because it doesn’t get a lot of power brought into it it can’t power a right enough backlight to give you that same level of brightness but I did find again this one is slightly brighter than my aces n screen and is pretty nice to look at under most lighting conditions but just bear that in mind now like many portable displays this has a built-in cover that doubles as a stand however the stand function here is terrible in fact the documentation doesn’t really reference it at all and you’re just expected to kind of balance it up here like so and I confused as to how to use it and I actually bent part of it when I was getting it set up but the the device here continually flops over it doesn’t hold itself up very well as you can see and if you want to use the touch display features of this

because it will work as a touch display on Windows you’ll be knocking it over all the time so I think you’ll want to use a stand like I have here just to give you a little bit more stability with it the cover works well as a cover but not as a stand the device itself though is mostly made out of metal so that was nice although they glued the cover here onto the back of the device so the cover is always with you whether you like it or not but again I think a stand investment would be a sound one in this instance you have some controls here on the side to adjust brightness and whatnot there are a few HDR modes as you’ll see in a few minutes it does have the ability to take HDR in and display it properly we’ll test that on the iPad in a few minutes but you might find yourself in those menus jumping around a bit I did find the navigation to be a bit clunky on it so you’ll might want to spend some time just kind of getting used to it I found the brightness level was only at 50% when I hooked it up by default so the first thing you’ll want to do is go in and turn the brightness up to get the full potential of the display now you’ll notice here there is a microUSB port this is a port for connecting up an OTG adapter which I’ll show you in a few minutes so what you can do is hook up a keyboard and a mouse for example into the display and then have it work on your computer and this will be very useful for single port devices which we will also be talking about in a few minutes when I demo the display and I’ll again I’ll show you how that port works when we get to that part of the review on the other side you have a headphone jack here there’s also speakers built in not the best speakers but if you want better sound

hook the headphones up there now it’s a little confusing as to the USBC ports that it has here so this port here that’s labeled type C is the port that you connect to your computer now if your computer cannot supply enough power to the display then you’ll need to connect its USB C power adapter to the power connector and the cool thing is is that when you do that putting your laptop’s power supply in here it will actually send power back out to the laptop over the other type-c connector you’ll see that with my surface go in a second this is also how you will connect up the Nintendo switch the Nintendo power adapter goes in here and then the power will come back out over the type-c connector while the switch sends the video in through that very same connector we’ll demo that in a minute – that’s a really nice feature to have on here especially if you have a single USBC port device like a phone or a tablet or something like that next to those type-c connectors are two mini HDMI inputs they will give you a HDMI cable in the box to connect up a full sized connector to the smaller one but these are not hard to find you can get many mini HDMI to full HDMI cables and adapters on Amazon and other retailers so you shouldn’t have any problem making use of these ports but you will need to make sure that you have power connected up when you are using the HDMI on here so you’ve got three video inputs USB C and two HDMI and now what I want to do is show you how all of this works we’re going to start with my surface go tablet will then take a look at the Nintendo switch and make some other recommendations too so let’s take a look at my surface go here and

connect it up to the display now this device has only a single USBC connector on board and I’m finding not every computer I test this with has enough juice to get the display to work reliably so you’re going to see it blinking on and off here because it’s not able to get enough power through this cable on its own it worked okay with my Mac but not with the Windows Device so what I’m gonna do now is plug in this power connector from my surface go or just one of my random USB C power connectors into the side of the display here and that has provided us with a much more reliable power connection here to get this to work so the touch screen does work on here as you can see I can go ahead and do some simple math here with the calculator and be able to use that on the second display but again just be prepared you might need a secondary power source if you are the house and what you could do if your computer doesn’t provide enough power is plug in one of those USB backup batteries provided it can provide two amps of power that’s typically what you would need out of a tablet charger you could plug that USB power adapter into the power USB port on here and you’re good to go if you’re curious as to how many touch points are on here there are 10 as I claw the display here you can see how that works this

app by the way is called display tester it’s free on the windows app store so you can see how many touch points your own display has but as far as the windows touch display goes this works pretty nicely this did not work on my Mac of course so I think it’s going to be Windows only for a touch but that is a pretty nice little feature to have with it alright so let’s check out the USB OTG adapter for connecting up a keyboard and trackpad through the display here these little adapters are very inexpensive and they allow you to plug in a full size USB port even when you have just a micro USB port on your compatible device people use these a lot with Android phones and tablets so what we’re going to do is just plug this in to the other side of the display here and then we’re going to connect up this logitech wireless transceiver which works with my keyboard and trackpad combo here so now that that’s connected again to the display we should see my mouse pulling up here yep there it is and I’ll pull up a window here so you can see everything moving around here but there you go it looks like the keyboard and trackpad works through the USB port here on the display so in many ways this display is kind of like a USBC hub that we reviewed in other videos where you get power going back to the device you’ve got display going out and you can attach additional USB devices all through a single cable here so it works pretty nicely provided you have enough power going into the display to begin with let’s take a look now at the Nintendo switch all right so we’ve got my Nintendo switch here running in tablet mode now

the display has my Nintendo switch power adapter plugged into that USB C power port and then we’ve got our display connector here and what I’m going to do now is plug that display connector into the bottom of my switch you’ll see the display here is now off and we should see it coming up on screen here as you can see and I can jump back into my game hopefully and start playing like we were before and there you go you can see we’ve got Mario playing Smash Brothers here and we are pretty much using this switch like we would on a dock but without the dock it’s getting power if we hit the home button here it’s getting power through that power connector and the display is going out now remember this only though will work with the official switch power adapter if you plug in a different USB C power adapter it doesn’t work at all it just stays blank on you there now a couple of things to note here on the overall image quality what I noticed is that the response rate of the display seems to be rather slow you’re going to see a lot of blur when you’re playing games like this one where you’ve got a lot of animation on screen it won’t be perhaps as sharp as some of those gaming displays that have very low response rates I don’t know what the response rate is on this one they didn’t list it on the specifications but you will see a lot of blur as things are moving around on screen quickly but if you are looking for a way just to have a nice portable thin display to carry around with you to work with your switch this isn’t such a bad way to go now one thing that surprised me about the display is how minimal its input

lag is we hooked up my analogue NT mini to one of its HDMI ports I pushed a button and we shot the screen at 240 frames per second to see how long it took for that button push to register on screen and we got an input lag of only 44 milliseconds which is identical to my Samsung gaming monitor that we use as our control device whenever we’re doing these kinds of tests is a very good result for something that I did not expect to do as well as it did so I think if you are looking for a gaming usage for this device it should actually do pretty well at that from an input lag perspective but again not so great on the pixel refresh rate my image quality overall though looks good again you’re gonna have some blur issues here but the IPS display here has nice color the switch games look really really nice on this as do a lot of my PC stuff as well so is pleased with that it’s not going to be something for creative professionals to use but it does look good enough for the kinds of things you would use one of these portable displays for the sound on the speakers isn’t spectacular but it’s good enough for getting around the display with some friends to play games you’ll get of course better sound quality out of the headphones when you plug it in but overall not bad I think for what this display is all about again a little brighter than the asu’s end screen and beyond just that response rate issue I think it’s a pretty nice display for playing your games on now I found some mobile devices do

work with the display my iPad pro here which has a USBC connector was able to work with it without having to plug in a separate power source we are powering the display now completely from my iPad here touch display doesn’t work here as you can see but you can pop around and get into different things on here so that seems to work one thing I had to do with the iPad though was manually adjust the display on it because it does have some degree of HDR compatibility so I think if you’re plugging in perhaps a 4k blu-ray player or a 4k device although you won’t get 4k output it might actually work with the color modes there I had to force this into this HDR 2084 mode for the iPad to appear but it does look a little washed out to me even with that setting the colors look really off when that mode was set to auto so there’s a lot of little glitchy things with this that might throw a wrench in your enjoyment of it it does support a lot of different things on the PC side it also supports free sync if you have an AMD device to connect up with it so it supports a lot and I think you might have to go in and tweak some settings to get everything to work properly but if you do that I think you’ll have a pretty good experience with it and I was very pleased to see how well the Nintendo switch work with it because that was a kind of a kind of surprised actually to be able to just plug the switch in and get charging to work and have display output working with it as well the big issue though with it is this Horrible’s stand that it has especially if you want to touch the screen when it’s connect up connected up to a Windows device you’re

going to have some issues with it because it’s just flopping around back here you can have to balance it and you touch it once and the whole thing’s that’s gonna fall over I also had a bit of a quality control issue with mine you’ll notice here that it’s got some electronics that are part of the product that are screwed in here and it looks like when they were screwing this side down they added some pressure marks to the display that are hard to see on camera but something I’m noticing so you might want to just take a close look at yours when you get it out of the box and make sure the display looks okay to you I’m not seeing a lot of issues with bleed through or anything like that but I am noticing some pressure marks lining up exactly where those screws are on the back so that was the only thing that I noticed there with mine but it could just be that they sent me kind of a b-grade for the purposes of the review here so overall not bad it’s a little quirky you got to get around some of those quirks I do recommend getting a tablet stand kind of like this one to prop it up when you’re out in the field but I just like the connectivity options that you have here two HDMI you’ve got all the USBC options and of course the switch compatibility as well so not bad here at all let me know what you think down in the comments below and until next time this is Lion Simon thanks for watching this channel is brought to you by the lon TV supporters including gold-level supporters Chris Allegretto the four guys with quarters podcast Tom Albrecht in Kellyanne Kumar if you want to help the channel you can by contributing as little as a dollar a month head over to LAN TV slash support to learn more and don’t forget to subscribe visit Lana TV
