Computer peripherals brand introduces its first portable IPS monitors starting under $200 in both touch and non-touch versions.
SOUTH BEND, IN (August 15, 2019) – Viotek®, a brand at the forefront of performance and value in gaming peripherals and other consumer electronics, today introduces its first portable IPS monitor in both touch and non-touch versions. Prices starting under $200 making them the most affordable portable monitors on the market.
The LinQ and LinQ Touch are Viotek’s smallest monitors to date, packing a brilliant 1080p 15.6-inch display with a 178-degree viewing angle into an ultra-thin (0.36-inch thick), lightweight (1.35 and 1.7 pounds respectively) body. Both the LinQ and LinQ Touch offer an IPS panel with a 60hz refresh rate and support AMD FreeSync®. Brightness is adjustable up to 250 nits.
“We designed the LinQ with a simple goal in mind,” says VP Brett Barbour. “To combine productivity and portability in an easy-to-use, elegant form factor.”

The LinQ and LinQ Touch feature two USB-C ports as well as HDMI and 3.5mm audio out, offering more connection options than other portable monitors. Both are wrapped in a magnetic leather case that doubles as an adjustable stand offering multiple configurations and viewing angles.
The LinQ Touch features a 10-point precision capacitive touchscreen and a beautifully crafted metal and glass body with a mirror finish.
Engineered for today’s on-the-go- lifestyles, the LinQ, and LinQ Touch are travel-friendly, making it possible to turn any laptop, tablet or even smartphone into a dual-screen setup. Perfect when traveling for business, or even casual gaming and movies. Increase screen real-estate when giving presentations, collaborating or coding. They can also serve as an external viewfinder for photographers.
Like all Viotek monitors, the LinQ and LinQ Touch are backed by a 1-year limited warranty and Viotek’s best-in-market Pixel Perfect Promise.
