When we think of portable monitors, we often conjure up images of inexpensive look-and-feel devices with poor color representation and that we can only use for the most basic of tasks.

Step into Innocn 15k1f; A full-HD, OLED, 15.6-inch portable monitor that beats out a lot of its competition. Retailing at $419.99, the device makes an excellent choice if you’re looking for a high-quality display that you can take with you wherever you go, and which services can meet multiple needs.

Carefully crafted construction

One thing that strikes you about the Innocn 15k1f when you take it out of the box, is the level of craftsmanship that has gone into the device. It looks and feels very professional. Plus, with overall dimensions (without the case) of 14.2 x 9.2 x 0.2 inches, and weighing in at just 1.6 pounds, this is a monitor we can definitely call portable.

The design is really sleek, with a mattified finish thanks to the aluminum metal housing, which comes in an attractive copper-brown color. Down the center, at the bottom of the screen, you have the Innocn logo.

In the upper right corner are the controls. There’s a power button on the top edge of the monitor’s corner, and the LED indicator to its right, so you know when the device is receiving power and is in operation. In the right edge of the corner of the monitor are some indescribable up and down keys. All keys have several functions, which we’ll outline in the next section.

There are stereo speakers in the center of both the left and right sides, indicated by holes punched in the sides for sound to escape.

On the bottom right edge, you also have two USB Type-C inputs and mini-HDMI.

The case is made of silicone and plastic and comes in gray and black. It’s a magnetic case combined with a rubber bumper, and the magnetic section folds back on itself to serve as a stand. Amazingly strong at that!

Overall, a lovely device, and we haven’t even turned it on yet.

How easy is the operation of Innocn 15k1f?

Considering that we are looking at a portable monitor, operation is certainly easy. To cover those multifunction buttons, long-pressing the power button for three seconds turns the device on and off, while a click while operating the monitor opens the OSD menu and menus once in a sub-menu. will enter. While in the OSD menu, press and hold the power button for a second, the current option/sub-menu will exit.

The Up key will raise the volume up or, while in the OSD menu, it moves the menu to the left and raises any user-operated progress bar (like turning up the brightness, for example). The Down key will lower the volume or while in the OSD menu, the menu options will be moved to the right and any user-operated progress bar will be minimized (such as turning down the contrast).

LED indicator assists in operation. When it’s blue, you know the screen is working. orange, and the screen is on stand-by. Light up, and the power is off, as you might expect.

Navigating the OSD is simple, and you can access a variety of customizable options here.

The Home screen allows you to access other menus and adjust your brightness, contrast, and volume. There’s a Profiles menu, which allows you to create up to six different screen profiles, so you can have one for gaming and one for reading eBooks. You have the Color Temperature menu, which gives you the ability to change the RGB values.

You also have a color menu, which lets you calibrate settings like saturation and image sharpness. The Type-C and HDMI menu options switch between those two inputs as a source. Lastly, you have the Reset option, to factory reset your monitor, and the Exit option, which (in case you didn’t guess) exits the OSD.

While navigating the menus and operating the device, I found button presses to become unresponsive. They’re not finicky, so I didn’t have any issues with, say, I held my finger on the power button for a little more than a second and turned the device off—button-press timing basically for Innoken’s word. correct.

Picture perfect performance

On display, then. I have to admit, I’m always a little skeptical when it comes to portable displays. I often feel that they are lacking in some way or the other, especially when they claim to be great for gaming. So, is the Innocn 15k1f good for gaming? And what about other applications, such as a reading monitor, watching movies, and as a screen for graphics applications like Photoshop?

To test the monitor’s gaming prowess, I connected it to my laptop and hit up my Game Pass account. Knowing that No Man’s Sky is an incredibly colorful and detailed game, this was my first port of call. The OLED screen really shines here. The contrast between the colors (which, let’s admit, is pretty wild in No Man’s Sky) is wonderfully depicted (to the point where my graphical picture doesn’t do it justice).
