SideTrak Slide is a 12.5” FHD IPS portable monitor that securely attaches to the back of your laptop with device-safe metal plates.
Like most Americans, I’ve been working from home more often, and that means logging lots of miles on my laptop, which only sports a 13-inch screen. I’ve been looking for an affordable, portable LCD monitor for years, and I found the perfect one in the SideTrak Slide. What’s great about the Slide is this 12.5” HD monitor attaches to the back of a laptop with semi-permanent metal plates, so you can effortlessly work anywhere with two screens. It effectively doubles laptop screen workspace and extends your display to enable efficient multitasking or mirror your display to share your screen.
The SideTrak Slide’s 270° screen rotation allows you to adjust it to your viewing preference. You can rotate the screen all the way around to share it with someone sitting across from you. Designed with dual sliding track, you can center the monitor on the back of your laptop, adjust it your laptop size, and switch between right and left orientation. With SideTrak’s strong magnets and secure attachment, you can set up your workstation anywhere and easily move from room to room. SideTrak Slide connects to your laptop with just one USB-C to USB-C cord or a USB-A adapter.
Stop the frustration of going back and forth between tabs and easily transform your workstation into a dual-screen setup. You’ll quickly realize the SideTrak portable monitor helps increase your productivity and efficiency.
This monitor’s slim and lightweight design adds only 0.7 inches and 1.65 pounds to your laptop. It is easy to carry and easily fits into a travel bag, carry-on or backpack. You can also travel with it separately with the SideTrak protective sleeve. SideTrak is built to withstand everyday wear and tear and comes with a 1-year warranty.
Some of the negatives: I wish the screen was a bit brighter and the sliding mechanism could be a bit smoother. But this may seem like nitpicking for an innovative and versatile product. I still give it a big thumbs up!
