New Mimo USB Displays Perfect for Ops Center Dreams
Today Mimo Monitors announced the US availability of two 7″ USB-driven displays, the Mimo UM-710 (top-left) and UM-740 (top-right).
From all appearances, the 740 ($200) seems like a better deal than the 710 ($130). The extra $70 gets you touchscreen capability, and a built-in webcam and microphone as well. Specs and purchasing info available to those who continue.
Both models draw their power and video input through USB, can swivel between landscape and portrait modes, and feature a 400:1 contrast ratio. Support for Windows XP, Vista, and Mac OS X are promised as of press time.
Personally, Mimo’s new monitors look like specialty devices designed for professionals with some money to burn; adding a touchscreen panel (or two, three, four…) to your desktop setup may be cool, but just how practical is it for everyone? As a frustrated graphic designer, I’d be interested to see just how well the 710 and 740 can reproduce colors on their respective 800 x 480 screens.
