'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

A dual monitor system able to expand your laptop's capabilities can be an excellent investment with many of us now working from home and when screen space is an issue. 

Over at Amazon, you can save $120 on the TeamGee 12" portable laptop monitor setup, a system that gives you two extra screens to manage work tasks. At the moment you will pay $319, a discount of 27% off the product's typical retail price. 

The monitor extender provides two 12" Full HD (1920x1080) IPS displays. The refresh rate is allowable at 60Hz, which is suitable for work, email, and most daily tasks -- but wouldn't be suitable for fast-paced gaming. The monitors connect via either USB or HDMI ports and stay in place with a back support framework connecting to your laptop.
