We're big fans of Nanovision's MIMO monitors, the 7-inch USB sub-displays we reviewed back in November; they're useful for everything from chat windows, Photoshop toolbars and media players to video conferencing with the webcam-enabled versions. Now you can find the Nanovision MIMO UM-710, together with its touchscreen sibling the MIMO UM-740, on sale in the US, complete with free shipping.
Both displays have a 7-inch LCD panel running at 800 x 480, with 350 cd/m2 brightness and 400:1 contrast ratio. The UM-710 is the entry level version, being just the USB-bus powered screen, onto which the UM-740 adds touchscreen functionality, a webcam, a microphone and audio pass-through to make hooking up speakers and headphones straightforward for those whose PCs or Macs live under the desk.
Each is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, and Mac OS X - they use the DisplayLink technology, and we had both screens happily running simultaneously from a ULV Sony VAIO TZ notebook, so they're not exactly system-intensive - and make neat secondary-displays for toolbars, IM windows, media players and Twitter clients. The Nanovision MIMO UM-710 and UM-740 are available in the US now from MIMOmonitors.com, priced at $129.99 and $199.99 respectively.
