Ask Engadget: Best USB / secondary monitor?

Darren Murph

We know you've got questions, and if you're brave enough to ask the world for answers, here's the outlet to do so. This week's Ask Engadget question is coming to us from Corey, who needs a secondary display to run widgets, IM boxes and squashed YouTube clips while the real work goes down on the main screen. If you're looking to send in an inquiry of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.
"My laptop's screen is feeling cramped these days, but since I mostly use it at a desk, I'm thinking of getting a USB monitor instead of a whole new rig. I know Mimo has a bunch of options, but has anyone used them? Are there any other companies out there making these USB-connected secondary displays? I know it's a new industry, but hopefully someone has a first-hand perspective to share. Thanks!"
No worries Corey -- we'll point you to our own Mimo impressions, and then we'll ask the readers to contribute from there. Any tips on which USB monitor is best? Any horror stories that we should all be aware of? Chime in below!
