    This review is quite fair, what he received was an early engineering sample which we didn't fine-tune the colour profiles and stylus performance yet. The main purpose was to provide a first look of what the panel is capable of.

    What you guys will be receiving is going to be the final (matured) version. Cheers~

    By the way, we are ready to shoot another video update about HDR performance this week, we are just waiting for our SONY PS5 to arrive before doing it. :p

    We are still sticking to the plan to ship out partially to our early backers by the end of this month,
    and the rest after the CNY holidays (yes, there are long CNY holidays coming).

    "The XtendTouch Pro also requires two cables and a USB charging hub to function, making it a lot less practically portable than models that work over a single USB-C cable."

    I knew that high brightness was gonna come at a price. Pity it couldn't just have an integrated battery instead to compensate for the extra power.

    Yes, at HDR mode it goes >550 nits (actual figure we measured) so the image really pops.

    A built-in battery won't give a nice battery life for a 4K AMOLED display unless we make it super thick and heavy,
    which loses the point of an OLED display.

    PD power bank with 45W or higher, 20,000mAh or more, would be a good solution.

    Could you give the approximate wattage/power draw of the 4K OLED panel (APL 50%)?

    For comparison, do you know the power draw of a similar sized 15.6" 1080p LCD panel, such the one in the Asus ZenScreen MB16AMT with integrated battery?

    Should be around 11W vs 4W, 4K has 4 times more pixels to drive. 1/3 of battery life would be less than 2 hours as you may expect. (We have a built-in battery 1080p model that lasts much longer than the MB16AMT, it's called XT1610F)

    perhaps you can explain something to me.

    Devices like the iPad Pro and Samsung Tab S7 all offer touch, pen, high resolution displays, 500+ nits of brightness, and a full ipadOs/android chipset in a slim 6-7 mm thick frame, all with included batteries that at the full brightness last 5-10 hours.

    My Asus Zen Touch is larger and thicker then the iPad Pro, yet it’s included battery lasts around 3 hours and it’s nowhere near as bright or as high a res, and for a device like this, that matches the iPad is screen quality and brightness....to include a battery would necessitate making it super thick and heavy......buy why?

    How difficult would it be to create a USB-C monitor in an approximation of an iPad Pro or Tab S7+ With the same form factor and capabilities? What’s this barrier that’s preventing makers of USB-C monitors form approaching what Apple and Samsung seem to have no trouble producing?
