[Amazon.ca] ViewSonic TD1655 15.6 Inch 1080p Ultra Portable Monitor with Touchscreen - $232 PRE-ORDER (backordered)

This item will be released on August 10, 2020.

First time posting, I thought it was a good price for a touchscreen considering it's also from a known brand. For some reasons, they are selling it for $250 USD on amazon.com

The brightness is good, but the response time is bad, Response Time (Typical GTG): 14ms, Response Time (GTG w/OD): 6.5ms. So it would be a good deal if you are doing office, but i wouldn't recommend it for gaming.

For my application the brightness could be higher, non glossy, and for this size maybe 2k res or down to 12" FHD. Anything close to those specs? Ideally sunlight readable but those are still too pricey.

Thanks OP, been looking for an ultra portable screen with both usb-c and HDMI inputs for a while. Closest thing to this (touchscreen, USB C and HDMI inputs) from a "good brand" is the Asus MB16AMT. The Asus has a built in battery but it sells for more than 400 CAD. MSRP for the ViewSonic TD1655 is 239 USD, so 232 CAD is nice.

Sold my non-touch portable monitor on eBay for $170. Will pull the trigger for the touchscreen from a decent brand. Thanks OP!

Thanks OP, ordered! Comes with a cover and stylus according to the description, and I'm hoping I can make a frankenbook with a battery pack and my phone. The NexDock is an option, but this is about half the price.

I don't recall iPhone being able to output display with a lightning cable. Although, Apple TV can technically be connected to a monitor as it would with a TV via HDMI port.

It was available from August 7 to August 10 this morning. I'm going to update the title to reflect the change

Anyone get shipping/cancellation notice yet? This will be a good indicator of how they will handle both recent ViewSonic price errors.

I bet there is some face palming going on in whatever Amazon department handles listings.
