Digital Camera World Verdict

Quite simply, the ViewSonic ColorPro VP16-OLED is the best portable monitor on the market right now. Its combination of class-leading image quality, a carefully considered and highly versatile stand design, plus decent connectivity and extra features means there are no weak links or compromises here. The VP16-OLED isn't cheap, but it's everything a creative could want from a portable monitor - its price premium can easily be justified if you want a screen that'll match the quality of a high-end laptop's display.
