1. Hori Universal HD Review

Hori Universal HD

The next portable gaming monitor that I am about to review for you guys isn’t that beautiful as the one that I reviewed at no#1 but still from inside, I must say, it works at its best. It’s way better than the one that I reviewed in our best portable monitors list. So what are we waiting for? let’s get into the Hori universal HD monitor review. Starting from its design and features. First and foremost, the hori gaming monitor proved itself to be super portable with its lightweight of 3 pounds alongside with the display length of 194mm and width of 345mm with overall LCD 15.6 inches display.

It can easily fit in your bag. The monitor also comes with a leather cover that you can also use as a stand and for portability purpose, all you have to do is to fold the Hori monitor inside the cover and you’re ready to go. Moreover, in the case of gaming, the screen resolution is an important part which the hori monitor offers 1366×768 pixels and it’s great for playing games on high resolutions. The Hori portable monitor comes with offers built-in speakers, the sound quality is good but still, you want to experience some high-quality sounds, I would strongly recommend using the gaming headphones for that. Now you’re worried about the compatibility right? You don’t have to, because the hori portable monitor works almost all consoles including PS4, PS3, XBOX One and XBOX 360. You simply have to use the HDMI to create a bridge. The sole purpose of this Portable gaming monitor isn’t just playing games. You can also use it for office work and many other purposes like photoshop editing etc. Now that all of the things are clear to you, let’s proceed with the performance where I am about to share my personal experience with the hori monitor.

Well to check whether the image quality and the lag-free performance that hori portable monitor is offering, I kicked it in with streetfighter and Guilty Gear. Everything was perfect. No lag during gameplay, absolutely stunning graphics, and accurate colors. The audio was also perfect and clear. I must admit, the best performance delivered by the monitor. Here I have one important tip for you guys. If you want the perfect resolutions, I would recommend setting the native one which is 720p. The reason it’s better is that when you set resolutions at 1080p for hori monitor, things might feel out of focus which is not a great thing to experience. One thing I would like to mention. The portable HDMI monitor doesn’t come with any rechargeable batteries and the speakers on the device are loud enough but as I mentioned earlier, it would be better to use earphones or gaming headset for the ultimate audio experience.

  • Built-In Speakers.
  • Stunning performance.
  • Ready for portability.
  • Easy connectivity via HDMI.
  • Compatible with most of the consoles out there in the market.
  • High resolutions.
  • Accurate colors.
  • Comes with a Leather Cover.
  • AC adapter included in the package.
  • Lightweight.

The GAEMS T905 comes with built-in stereo speakers with two sound jacks which are great.

However, as I mentioned at the beginning of the GAEMS T905 portable gaming monitor review, I am impressed with everything except the design, I think the company could have more to offer in regards of the design. But if performance, audio HD quality, and LCD  screen are the things that you’re looking for in a monitor, GAEMS T905 is the best choice to make.

G-Story 12.9 Inch HDR IPS WQHD 1700P


We’re at #4 and yet another best portable gaming monitor, the G-Story 12.9 inches HDR IPS and it’s the best choice we made among the g-story electronics. The monitor comes amazing and cool features that make it perfect for gamers. Let’s jump into it.

The first amazing thing that I would like to mention is the AMD Radeon sync technology that comes with this portable monitor so that you could revel the lag-free gaming experience without any distractions. Not just this one good feature, the G-Story monitor also comes with the HDR technology. This technology has a great impact on the brightness of the screen as it makes the bright pixels on the screen brighter and same is the case with the dark pixels as it also makes them darker. Due to this, it’s classified in the eye-care portable gaming monitors as it helps in protecting your eyesight.

The g-story portable gaming monitor has a quite impressive design that includes a protector which helps the monitor cope with damages and scratches alongside with a stand that is attached to its back for full support. However, the stand isn’t designed for landscapes. You have to use a plan surface in order to keep the monitor in balance. It’s time to wrap up the g-story monitor review. The portable gaming monitor is the best choice for FPS/FTP games which comes with easy connectivity, stereo speakers, HDMI connectivity, Eye-care technology, lag free response time and HD resolutions.

6. GAEMS M240 Professional Portable Gaming Monitor Review

GAEMS M240 Professional

GAEMS M240, one of the best portable gaming monitors with 24 inches display and tremendous design. The display is a bit larger than the other portable monitors but I have to say this one stands out than many other devices in the market in regards to gaming. The whole point of GAEMS M240 review is to let you guys have a better understanding of the gaming experience with a device that we had. Let’s continue with the design.

The design itself speaks for itself, I mean with the 24 inches display you’re having a wider screen but don’t make a mistake of comparing it with a typical monitor. There are great differences in the design. The portable gaming monitor is powered with a stand that has the capability to rotate 180 degrees. Moreover, you don’t have to worry about the screen’s protection as it’s powered with a plastic protector that prevents the screen from scratches. I wouldn’t classify this in the category of portable monitors as it might be difficult for gamers to carry around with them during traveling or outdoors activities but as the M-240 professional gaming monitor still follows the portability trend, I thought let me review it for you guys. But with the 20W x 6.8D x 15H and 8lbs weight, I think it would be easy for an average person to carry. Anyhow, let’s jump straight into its features. Well, the features are quite impressive. The M240 professional gaming monitor is powered with the TN-Panel due to which you will experience a crystal display alongside with 1080×1920 pixels resolutions. The hue saturation is quite impressive as I was able to see every title crisp and clear during different gameplays.

Let’s discuss the performance of GAEMS M240 in default settings. Well, I wish the portable gaming monitor was a bit brighter as it appeared a dim as soon I switched it on. The colors were not that perfect at the beginning but as soon turned on the warm color temperature option, I was able to see everything perfectly. Well, the M240 is a good companion for beating your opponents in the PUBG game. Everything seemed quite responsive to and even I was able to hear the gunshots from the far distance. I must say the audio is just tremendous. Moreover, the lag-free performance is also important and the GAEMS never upsets on that. I tried it with XBOX One and PS4 the results were incredible. I have a problem with the connectivity as the m240 monitor has no support for USB ports and I have to use HDMI option only for streaming. The device is fine but I think the USB connectivity must an option. Same is the case with the  GAEM G155 personal gaming environment, as you would be bound to connect with HDMI only.

  • Best audio quality.
  • Lag-free performance.
  • HD resolutions.
  • HDMI connectivity.
  • Rotatable stand.
  • Large Display for an ultimate gaming experience.
  • Powered with TN-Panel.
