'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.

If you're gearing up to head back to class, you might be in the market for some new gadgets. But while we've provided a relatively comprehensive list of back-to-school tech, we'd be remiss if we didn't also tell you about the Desklab portable touchscreen monitor, especially since it's on sale for over 50% off the MSRP.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 in our store, the Desklab gives your devices a little bit of extra screen real estate. And, in some cases, a lot. It measures 15 inches, so it's big enough to make a measurable difference, but it's not so big that it's challenging to carry around. And it also features universal connectivity -- regardless of platform -- so it'll work with your phone, laptop, tablet, desktop, and even a gaming console.

What's even better is that the Desklab monitor is plug-and-play. There's no complex setup required, and the 4K image is never distorted either, no matter what device you connect to. Plus, the monitor features an integrated audio system and comes with USB-C, HDMI, and 3.5mm auxiliary ports. The Desklab runs off your device's battery, so the unit itself never needs to be charged. Verified customer Gary E. shared, "I found this product to be functional and fantastic with more than enough inputs to connect to virtually any laptop, tablet or other device!"

So, what can you do with it? Honestly, the more appropriate question might be, "What can't you do with it?" For example, the Desklab makes a fantastic secondary screen for a laptop, effectively doubling your productivity. Or you can pair it to a phone to make Zoom meetings more enjoyable. You can even connect it to your gaming rig to see more of the battlefield for a tactical advantage. The list is as long as your imagination!

Everyone, no matter what kind of work they do, can benefit from a portable Desklab touchscreen. And while this one normally costs a hefty $700, it's on sale right now for  $289.99, making it an excellent deal if you're embarking on a scholastic journey soon.
