- EASE OF USE
Boost your workflow with this high-quality portable monitor.
For the past three years, I’ve been working remotely from home. When I joined my current employer, I was asked what type of computer I wanted for my main workstation. I requested a laptop (a MacBook Pro to be exact). The reasoning behind this was that I would have the option of picking up my work and moving it wherever I needed to be. The only drawback to this type of workstation is lacking a second display when you pick up and move. That’s why portable displays like the SideTrack Solo Pro Touch FHD 17.3” Freestanding Monitor exist.

Pricing & Availability
The Solo Pro Touch FHD comes in a well-labeled, retail-style box. There is an image of the product on the front and some minor details on the back. When you open the box, you’ll find the monitor stored in its cover beneath some foam. The included cables and user manual are included below the monitor.
Set-up of the monitor is very simple. If you have a USB-C compatible device, you can use a single cable to connect the monitor to your host machine. I tested this with a 2020 MacBook Pro Air (M1), which has that compatibility. I plugged one end of the USB-C to USB-C cable into the monitor and the other end into the laptop. The monitor automatically turned on and started mirroring the laptop’s screen. I navigated to the display settings on the laptop to switch the mirroring to an extended display so that the monitor would work as a second screen.
The first thing that caught my eye is the display’s slim profile and minimalistic look. It effortlessly blends into any workspace, whether it’s a minimalist home office or a modern corporate setting. The bezel-less display further enhances the aesthetic appeal, providing an immersive viewing experience.
While the style of the monitor adds to the overall experience of the Solo Pro Touch monitor, I was also impressed by the touch screen capabilities and high definition resolution. The touch screen is extremely responsive and it works well with most systems. The display itself offers stunning visuals with vivid colors and sharp details. I used it to watch videos while I worked and to edit photos and I could also see this being helpful when giving presentations rather than having a group of people gather around a smaller screen.
The monitor really delivers when it comes to crisp, vibrant visuals. Even though it’s not a 4K monitor, it truly adds to the viewing experience. The 17-inch size can be a little cumbersome when you are moving from place to place, but it’s great for providing ample screen real estate while you are working. Plus, since it comes with an adjustable case, users can adjust it to various angles for optimal comfort.
- Comes with foldable cover.
- Cables are provided.

- High-quality image.
- At 17 inches, it’s a little large for certain applications.
- Case is a little flimsy.
Overall, the SideTrack Solo Pro Touch FHD 17.3 Freestanding Monitor combines style and performance in one elegant package. If you’re someone who values optimal viewing experiences, then the SideTrack Solo Pro Touch FHD 17.3 Freestanding Monitor should be at the top of your list. Its crisp and vibrant visuals will bring all your content to life, while its touch functionality adds convenience and efficiency to your daily tasks.
